        lol you finally banned from SI you f*ckf*ced troll ?_?
        back on topic: I assume there will be however the question is when will they make a new one….. since I believe there was quite a gap between this one and the previous one correct me if im wrong

        • Ikki Minami

          only one year so not that long

      • What’s behind the *? Is it a “U”nicorn?

  • Jamele Lawrence

    I just hope JSVS+ is released in JPN, becuz if it gets a japanese release then that means they should have more characters simply becuz it would be dumb to release the same game twice with just minor tweaks

    • Jordan Maurice

      actually with this release theres also a new arcade game mode

      • CrownedKing623

        Arcade mode? That addition is worth re-releasing the game in Japan? They already have 2 versions of this game. A 3rd would be trying too hard.

        • Think of J-Stars+ as a Game of the Year Edition of the game. Regardless of whether the PS3 and Vita versions get rereleased, they still have to release the PS4 version in Japan.

          It’s actually not much different than most of the games that were released last year.
          GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One
          Tomb Raider for PS4 and Xbox One
          The Last of Us for PS4
          Sleeping Dogs for PS4 and Xbox One
          The only difference is that the new features in the PS4 version will be added to the Vita and PS3 copies

        • Jordan Maurice

          Well this is mainly forcthe us and eu fans because we never got it and I think I remember them saying there may be a update to the regular version fpr the new game mode or dlc

    • I think as soon as Bandai Namco JPN uploads a similar video to what we had to their channel then just maybe there will be. Besides it also needs to be rereleased on PS4 there since it’s kinda unfair lol.

    • I’m pretty sure J-Stars+ is just the name of the English release. Whatever changes that J-Stars+ adds in the English release can just be added through a patch update in the Japanese version.
      If they do add more characters, then maybe J-Stars+ will get a separate Japanese release.

  • Did they not ask if it would be digital only in the US? That’s the main thing I care about.
    I figure characters will be cut, and there won’t be an English dub, so I’m concerned over whether it’ll be released on disc or not

  • DI

    they better make this game 2 times better than the original version cause the first one was dissapointing but if this one fix all the bad things the other one had I may not skip it as well

    • Bdock3601


      • TheGameTagerZ

        That wasn’t necessary. If you aren’t going to add to the conversation then please don’t bother with the comments at all.

        • I highly recommend you block that account from here because it’s not the real one, its someone imitating him.

      • DI

        I already know your name you dont have to remember me

    • CrownedKing623

      How was it disappointing if u never even played it, lol bandwagon fans

      • DI

        I thought you could analyze things by watching and reading about them but if you say the only way you can do it is trying them then “ok”

  • RedDragon10

    I’m going to be kind of pissed if a lot of characters are removed. NA/PAL never got certain animes like Beelzebub and Reborn, etc. and I want to play as Oga and Tsuna and a lot of others like Jonathan and Joseph

    • Ikki Minami

      If Oga/Tsuna get taken out I will probably find a way to mod the entire game and make their entire moveset by myself cause those were my fav two XX-Burner/Super Burying Punch ftw

  • Ikki Minami

    You guys should have a poll/forum to vote for who we would like to see in the J-stars vs+ just an idea cause u never know who might be watching/looking

  • bleadze

    But let’s get this out of the way first are there going to be new characters in this I already have it on PS3 so I need to know if I gotta buy aswell on ps4

    • There might be.
      Yoh Asakura, Jotaro Kujo, DIO and Dai have the biggest chance of making it.

  • Kita

    “His next challenge, if given the ability to make another Jump game is to add all the characters from Shonen Jump”

    DO IT! wiohgwpghweg

    ” For example, giving characters fighting moves who don’t normally fight
    had to be negotiated and approved by the license holders.”
    Does this mean characters like Kuroko are playable?
    Does this also mean that Allen might be playable.. :O

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Most likely mean characters like Ryotsu since he doesn’t really fight.

    • I’m sure it applies to Supports as well. They had to figure out a move for them that really fits the character well. In terms of playable it probably applied to Ryoutsu and Saiki. Taro too I think, though he’s a former assassin. He also uses a staff pole in his Manga so I’m surprised that’s not apart of his moveset.

    J patrol did another XV Interview as well: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GwJtVdxfksE

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Yup we were on it since this morning. It was a 30 minute interview almost so we had to look through it carefully.

      • micheal johnson

        Oh didn’t know

    • I think we may get a One Piece one too.

      • micheal johnson

        I doubt it they released a conclusion video too, they said to keep an eye out on the channel but they have no more info to share from jump festa

  • Kogure Yuuya

    IGN: 7.8/10
    -Too much anime

  • Really hoping characters don’t get cut in the long run.

  • Lifestreamer

    Fixing the obvious mistakes would be awesome, but I don’t think they will add new characters, hopefully I’m wrong.

    I’ll buy it, maybe it was pure marketing but this “make another jump game” line is just too powerful for me to resist.

    • I hope they add in Yugi if they make another Jump game. Yu-Gi-Oh! was the first Jump series I ever got into, other than Dragon Ball, YuYu Hakusho, and Rurouni Kenshin.

  • David Jordan Prude

    PllllEassseee make another so many people live the western release i will pay 100.00 dollars if i have too!!!!

  • Kevin

    If there will be another J-stars game, I hope they include Kinnikuman.
