Announced back in April, Jump Force‘s Switch release now has a release date: 28th August.

But this isn’t just any version of Jump Force; it’s the Deluxe Edition. That means anyone buying the game on Switch will also get all content included from Characters Pass 1 as standard.

For those unfamiliar with the title, Jump Force brings together a huge roster of characters from many of Bandai Namco’s most popular franchises. There’s Luffy from One Piece, Naruto, Kenshire from Fist of the North Star, and tonnes more. It’s a fighting game that lets you square up against some of your favourite characters – and it’s a lot of fun.


In our review of the game’s console relese back in February 2019, we said:

“Combat is where Jump Force redeems itself, providing what are undoubtedly the most entertaining anime bouts in video games. It’s easy to pick up and has enough intricacies to give it some depth, though it’s never going to give the likes of Street Fighter V or even DragonBall FighterZ a run for their money. It’s very much a entertainment-driven fighting game rather than a mechanically-driven one, but that’s not a bad thing.”


If you fancy a piece of that all-star action on your Nintendo Switch, Jump Force will be available from 28th August. Give the trailer a watch below.
