Rumor: J-Stars Victory VS+ Will Play Much Better Than The Original Release

    Damn, I will be really mad if they kick Yu Yu Hakusho, BoBoBo or Saint Seiya characters!

    • Saint Seiya got a recent release so it has chances of being in.

    • Jamele Lawrence

      BoBoBo, Yu Yu, and Saint Seiya has been dubbed in America so i dont see the point of them not making it in…

      • Enturax/Turbotrup

        Well, I think it depends more on the rights to the series than the voicecast itself.

  • micheal johnson

    They should add more characters from other series to replace the ones not present, but hopefully no anime/manga character that has had an official us release will be left out. That way we may miss out on asassins classroom and the basketball one but we won’t miss out on yu your any other lesser known characters.

  • tranny8888

    Not surprised if true. The criticism from J stars gives them the chance to do some balance changes and whatever for VS+.

    Despite all the hate it gets, i’m probably in the minority who enjoys the game. I don’t think it’s as terrible as people say. Then again I barely played online.

    • Mitsunari Ishida

      Your right to me its a great game and I played online a lot I just think the people who criticized the game just never learned how to play it properly.

    • Kiera

      Me too, I love it but some Chars are so OP like Akainu. And the Kamera and Controls could be smoother but overall its a great Game and I love to play it, play a lot with a Friedn online 2 on 2 Versus CPU.

      • hipten

        I think luffy is the most op person on the roster

        • Kiera

          No I think Akainu, he is a Beast and makes so much Demage. Luffy is very good too. The Game os imbalanced as hell Charakters like Medaka are relativly weak compare to Luffy, Goku or Sasuke.

    • This game gets hate? What is wrong with people? J-Stars is one of the greatest games ever developed

      • Ahtma

        No it really isn’t. Invincibility frames are everywhere, completely restricting the flow of combat to combo -> pause -> combo -> pause. Characters move in a really clunky way, camera controls can get wonky, and if I recall correctly the most overused character online is Killua.

        • funnymitchell

          what does a players character choice have to do with it being or not being one of the greatest games?

          • Ahtma

            The fact that he’s broken?

            • dizzyb230 .

              saiki is what you would call broken. there’s nothing wrong broken about killua.

            • funnymitchell

              yes THAT is a reason saying because a lot of people are choosing a specific character is not.

      • Cephrien

        Yeah uh. More like one of the worst and most broken.
        Have you even played the game?
        Its a broken mess.

  • Mitsunari Ishida

    I think that’s pretty clever taking out the characters that never been brought to america and adding more characters like from Naruto, BLEACH, Dragon Ball Z and One Piece some people might not like it but its alright.

    • son goku

      i want zoro

      • chris

        You sir are my hero

    • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

      I disagree. mostly because this game is not only coming to North America but Europe and South america as well. just because a series wasn’t licensed in the US doesn’t mean they don’t have it anywhere else, and Also, this game is a celebration of Shonen Jump Manga in general it should be an at least even number of characters for each series (originally most had 1, the slightly more popular series had 2, and the really big ones had 3 with the exception of One Piece that got 4 and even then I disliked it when they announced Ace.)

      • Mitsunari Ishida

        CALM THE DUCK DOWN I know north america is not the center of the world I was just using it as an example since im from north america, and another you can’t go berserk like that because it says not all Japanese characters will be present.

        • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

          oh sorry, sorry, I didn’t mean to sound like i was b*tching about that. (oh who am I kiding, i kinda was).

          still. I’m gonna keep my hopes up for all characters to making it in. it’s not really a “plus” if they’re gonna exclude people. not to mention that the unlicensed characters are actually the ones that are safe from being cut. since their rights fall back to Shonen jump. if anyone is getting cut are the licensed guys.

          • Mitsunari Ishida

            But I do understand what you mean this is a game about shonen jump characters they could have put a lot more but beening greedy is what game developers are good at.

            • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

              yeah,with that I agree, but to be honest I’d much prefeer that they added characters from other series like Kinnikuman, Nura, Claymore, Rosario+Vampire, Busou Renkin, etc. Instead of more DBZ, OP, and Naruto chars. And more stages. there’s far too few of them.
              but anyway, if we look at the screenshots that came out we have Saiki, Gintoki, Bobobo, Arale, Vegeta, Goku, Frieza, Naruto, Sasuke, Hancock, Luffy, Toriko, Zebra, Hinata, Kuroko, Korosensei, Medaka, Oga, Lala, Chitoge, Seiya, Sket Dan, and Taro confirmed. it doesn’t get more unknown than Taro so if he’s in I think everyone will

    • Tyger
  • Hopefully Nb will try hard not to leave out characters. And if we get lucky. We would get 5-10 new characters

    • I see the favourites.
      Jotaro Kujo (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
      DIO (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure)
      Dai (Dragon Quest: Dai’s Great Adventure)
      Yoh Asakura (Shaman King)

      making it in.

      • ShockingX

        As much as I would love Dai to be in there, I highly doubt it since the series is based on a game series not owned by Bandai Namco. If they could get the license for the new game I’d be all for it though

      • son goku

        no prob more main stream like one piece naruto dbz and bleach

  • Cephrien

    God. Please be true.

  • Mikeyoshi

    If Tsuna doesn’t make it back I’ll stick to my Japanese import of the game..
    And proceed to never buy another Namco Bandai product.

    • chris

      this X100 love my reborn!!! N HIBARI IF U CAN TELL

  • Jamele Lawrence

    I can see Taro, Nube, Ryutsu (sp?), Luckyman, and some assist characters not making the cut..other than Nube i could careless…oh and Momotaro too >_<

    • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

      Ryotsu was in the Trailer and Taro was confirmed via screenshots. like I keep saying the Won’t cut anyone.

  • Sh☯nenJump L☯ver

    how about some support characters out and replaced with playable ones and more up to date versions of characters

  • dizzyb230 .

    They nerf that Big Bang. Hopefully not though haha.

  • Reuben Malone


  • Random Name

    Thank god they’re removing some of the invincibility frames. The game was essentially combo, pause, combo, pause, etc. As for the characters I’m assuming characters from earlier Jump series won’t be making a return. Let’s hope at the very least we receive some new characters to fill their spot!

  • DI

    lol I knew some characters were not gonna make it I already know a couple of them but they better replace them with better characters cause if not the roster will be empty as f*ck

  • robotjox

    Pray this guy makes his journey to the west

    • Tyger

      if his in, i want Kuwabara too >.>

  • KyoyaHibari

    More balance and less clunkyness and delayed inputs would be nice. Hope they compensate for some characters they can’t get licenses for like what Capcom did with Tatsunoko vs Capcom. Let’s take out Taro, Luckyman, Ryotsu, Saiki and maybe Oga, Nube and Momotaro and get some Nurarihyon characters, Train and Creed from Black Cat, Buso Renkin characters, maybe Shaman King and perhaps some additions to pre-existing series entries (?). That would be nice.

    • Captain Sumoka

      I know I am 4 days too late buuut… REMOVE OGA??? ARE YOU INSANE???

      • KyoyaHibari

        Emphasis on “maybe”. Beelzebub still doesn’t have anything localized over here, so the odds aren’t as great I guess.

        • Captain Sumoka

          O thought u wanted him out

  • Ahtma

    God, I’m going to be so pissed if Momotaro isn’t in.

    • unleashrage

      Same here, I’m a fan of Sakigake.

  • I wonder if they’ll add any characters to make up for the Japanese-only characters being cut.
    It would be cool to see Gohan, Obito, Ulquiorra, Kurama, and hopefully someone like Yugi.
    I may be the only one, but I hope they dub the English version. I wanna hear my characters in English.
    And I may be hoping for a lost cause here, but I hope J-Stars+ has more stages. My only complaint about the Japanese release was the limited amount of stages.
    I’m also curious how the custom soundtrack feature will work on PS4 since it doesn’t support MP3’s, at least, since the last I’ve heard of it.

  • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

    I’m gonna say this right now. I don’t believe this about characters being cut. Mostly because because he seems to be his own source.
    Plus, The Art that was used to announce J-Stars+ to America and Europe is the exact same from the box art (and EVERYBODY is there). if that thing about “cutting characters” was true then, legally, they would not be able to use that art.

    also. for the people who said that “characters that were never brought overseas are at risk of being cut” my question for you is ARE YOU FREAKING STUPID?! the rights to those characters falls right back to Shonen Jump so they are as safe as they it gets! the main issue (if there really is one) is with the characters that were already licensed! and Even then, we don’t know how that would play out because a character that was licencesed in Europe may not have been licenced in America and vice versa!

    I do hope they balance it out and add more characters though!

    • TheGameTagerZ

      I feel like Taro would get cut since no one really enjoyed his presence in the game.

      • PEIXE DO PRAZER (PleasureFish)

        NOPE. for better or worst, he’s already confirmed. if you look at the screenshots that came out you can see: Saiki, Gintoki, Bobobo, Arale, Vegeta, Goku, Frieza, Naruto, Sasuke, Hancock, Luffy, Toriko, Zebra, Hinata, Kuroko, Korosensei, Medaka, Oga, Lala, Chitoge, Seiya, Sket Dan, AND TARO.
        and if that little abomination from hell is back I doubt anyone will be left out.

        • TheGameTagerZ

          I noticed I mean under the assumption that the this rumor has any truth to it.

      • Was Chinyuki, really that popular back then? I mean, I heard it got banned after 100 chapters or so.

  • Shonen Jump

    Hey go to ryhmestyle on YouTube. It about J-Stars Victory Vs+ about the character roster. He is friend with bandai namco.

  • Justin Montrell Brown

    Let’s hope that this Bringer of Bad Luck comes to the USA

    • DesiGamer2005

      I’d want him in his Chronos XIII outfit. Was never fond of his more cat-like gear. :/ In his Chronos XIII outfit, he looked so badass

  • Guest

    My money is on Train Heartnet to come I think he would be a great addiction to the game.

  • Steed

    I honestly don’t care about balancing. I play a lot of Street fighter (most 4 but a little 3rd strike) and when you compare this to that kind of fighting game this is trash. But that’s why I don’t compare the two. This was just a fun little broken party game and that’s ok. If they fix some of that, that’s cool. But yeah, just enjoy it for what it is, I don’t think anyone was gonna take this seriously.

  • In my opinion and from what I’ve seen via trailer and screenshots, characters won’t be getting removed. I mean it’s called J-Stars Victory VS+ not J-Stars Victory VS-. I’ll definitely be picking this up for PlayStation 4 though! 1080p graphics and 60FPS sounds awesome. I hope the balancing part be true though, a lot of people had unnatural gaming balance damage ratio’s in that game. Especially Vegeta’s Big Bang Attack, and Ace’s ‘Strong’ attacks used during Triangle. I think they should also fix Kenshiro’s vacuum affect with how it sucks you in, and I guess it’s random after-affect too. Also in terms of fixing stuff they should fix Sasuke’s Victory Burst Susano’o glitch, Goku’s ‘Just Guard’ glitch and Yusuke’s Mazoku being unable to do the Special glitch. In my honest opinion though if characters do get cut for some odd purpose, at least fill the gaps with new characters and series that are already in the safe zone in the west, like Jotaro Kujo, DIO and Yoh Asakura who where already on the disc but unfinished/scrapped.

  • ℬaℛa-kun

    Wtf, it will have the roster of the original one , won’t it (no char will be left out?)

  • Tyger

    This is nice, but also, kinda sad, some characters I looked them up, they have good enough anime, JUST HOPING! NOT to see 3 versions of naruto, bleach or goku, i love DBZ< but i dont need 3 different version of the same character, the roster will be filled with people from Naruto and Bleach… maybe not, maybe they will add more Yu Yu hakusho, One Piece, HxH, Knights of Zodiac, some anime only have 1 to 2 representative. But I am just really worried about seeing to many Narutos or Bleach.

  • the most requested characters too be included are but not limited too: Yoh/Zorro/teen gohan ssj1/2 /dio/yugi
