Published by 18 April 2019, 12:18 PM EDT

Bandai Namco has revealed the full lineup of nine characters — including Dragon Ball‘s Majin Boo — coming as paid downloadable content to Jump Force, the 50th anniversary crossover fighting game recently released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The nine characters listed match those discovered by data miners back in February.

Additional characters are included in the game’s supplemental $29.99 “Characters Pass”, which also includes four days of earlier access to said characters and each coming with abilities and costume elements for the player’s avatar character. Last month, Bandai Namco shared their 2019 roadmap for Jump Force, outlining the tentative schedule of upcoming character additions and free updates.

Jump Force, a crossover fighting game in celebration of Jump‘s 50th anniversary, contains four brand new characters designed by original Dragon Ball author Akira Toriyama. The game released worldwide on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) with a Japanese launch 14 February 2019 followed by an international release the following day on 15 February 2019. Jump Force currently features Son Goku, Vegeta, Trunks, Piccolo, Freeza, and Cell as playable characters. We recently discussed Jump Force on episode #0467 of our podcast.

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. Prior to this, the company developed the Sparking! (released internationally as “Budokai Tenkaichi”) and Raging Blast series of Dragon Ball fighting games.
