“Reborn!” & “Beelzebub” Characters Join “J-Stars Victory Vs”
Published by 06 November 2013, 8:40 PM EST

Next week’s upcoming 2013 #50 issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump in Japan is set to debut another two fighters — in “Hero Duos” — for the March 2014 Jump-franchise crossover fighting game extravaganza, J-Stars Victory Vs.

Tsunayoshi Sawada from Katekyo Hitman Reborn! joins the fight alongside Reborn, where they will be able to perform the “X-Burner” attack together.

Tatsumi Oga from Beelzebub joins the fight with Beelzebub himself, who can be thrown at enemies to inflict damage.

A new support character duo is also set to jump into the mix in the form of Kagura and Sadaharu from Gintama, who can ride into the fray to attack an opponent on the player’s behalf.

Each duo will also have a set of personalized interactions within the game, including dialogue which will change depending on the other characters in the battle.

J-Stars Victory Vs is due out 19 March 2014 in Japan on the PlayStation 3 and Vita. Regular and “Limited Edition” versions will be available for both platforms. Son Goku and Vegeta are the two characters currently announced from Dragon Ball, alongside a wealth of other characters from Jump series old and new alike.

    You once closed a thread in the message board because Dameon Clarke who voiced Cell won an award..
    You said it was not Dragonball related.
    How is it that Reborn and beezlebub are dragonball related?
    It doesn’t matter if goku and vegeta are in the game.
    Reborn and beezlebub is NOT dragonball news..
    I think this is Hippocratic.

    The word you’re looking for is “hypocritical”. And I don’t see how it is.

    I have absolutely no idea what old message board thread you’re referring to, but in all likelihood, no, it didn’t have anything to do with Dragon Ball. Someone who once worked on the series winning an award (which, again, in all likelihood wasn’t due to their work on Dragon Ball) isn’t Dragon Ball news.

    As a parallel, we would not have covered Shunsuke Kikuchi’s JASRAC award if “Doraemon” was the only work listed (

    We covered “Jump Super Stars” and “Jump Ultimate Stars” on the DS, we covered “Battle Stadium D.O.N.” on the PS2 and Gamecube, and we’re covering “J-Stars Victory Vs”. They’re all crossover games in which Dragon Ball is heavily featured with characters and background stages. New characters added to the mix in a game that heavily features Dragon Ball is of significant interest to Dragon Ball fans.

    This just comes across as an excuse to complain about Kanzenshuu not giving FUNimation’s English dub enough (read: any) attention.

    Honestly, I wasn’t complaining about giving the English dub any attention to the English dub.
    I thought it was cool someone who kinda got their start on a DragonBall series was winning awards now.
    Something that people can have a discussion about.
    For example if Ryo Horikawa was voicing say as Shane on The Walking Dead dub… That wouldn’t be news to you?
    I dunno I think it would be interesting to know what any voice actor is up to..
    Kind of like when you see an actor in a movie.. “Hey weren’t they in that movie…?”
    To me, it gets the word of DragonBall out there that this guy who won this award kind of got his start in the business. That’s all I’m saying. So in a way it BEGINS with DragonBall. To me it’s pretty cool. I’m sure to others as well.
    I’m not trying to bust balls here, just making a point that even tho Goku and Vegeta are in the game you’re talking about, why are you posting about Beezlebub? That’s like me saying The guy who voiced Cell voices Jack in Borderlands 2. Anyways I’ll leave it that.
    Love the site. Keep up the great work, I appreciate the info and wish I could contribute more but I just feel like what I contribute isn’t sufficient enough. But I’m here everyday! Thanks!
