The game’s respective Japanese trailer does not list a specific release date, instead reiterating the “February 2019” timeframe.
Jump Force, a crossover fighting game in celebration of Jump‘s 50th anniversary, will contain four brand new characters designed by original Dragon Ball author Akira Toriyama. Son Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza have already been revealed as playable characters. The game is slated for a worldwide release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam). The game’s North American release is available for pre-order at Amazon.
Spike Chunsoft previously developed J-Stars Victory Vs., a crossover fighting game celebrating Jump‘s 45th anniversary; the game was originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Vita, with a PlayStation 4 port eventually coming alongside an international localization. Alongside Arale from Dr. Slump, Son Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza were the three Dragon Ball representatives in J-Stars Victory Vs. Prior to this, the company developed the Sparking! (released internationally as “Budokai Tenkaichi”) and Raging Blast series of Dragon Ball fighting games.
