Along with the Dragon Ball franchise’s main outing, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z (hitting the 360, PS3, and Vita sometime in early 2014), the multiplayer crossover brawler J-Stars Victory Vs was also shown off by Namco-Bandai at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
In addition to being playable on the show floor, a second promotional video was also on display during the event, which was uploaded to YouTube last week by the company:
Tarō Yamada from Chin’yūki will also appear as a playable rival character. New battle mechanics include various attacks such as “Hero Action”, “Combination Attack”, “Victory Voltage”, “Trap”, and a “Support Character” you can call on. Showcased as a support character is Jaguar Jun’ichi from Pyū to Fuku! Jaguar.
This past week’s 2013 #45 issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump also revealed two more character additions to the game: Medaka Kurokami and Misogi Kumagawa from Medaka Box. Medaka, the fearsome Student-Council President, can move “faster than the speed of sound” to strike her enemies, and apparently also includes a “fierce god mode”. Misogi Kumagawa is a support-only character, who is apparently able to attack and weaken enemy characters.
The game’s official website has been detailing some of the background stages, including Alabasta (One Piece), Planet Namek (Dragon Ball), and Vegetable Sky (Toriko):
J-Stars Victory Vs will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Vita. No official release date or price have been revealed.
