Blend Dragon Ball, Naruto and One Piece characters into the anime Frankenstein’s monster of your dreams

Bandai Namco’s fighting game Jump Force will bring together beloved characters from a variety of Shonen Jump manga, including Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach and Yu-Gi-Oh. It will also give players the ability to create their own custom characters, using the game’s unified (and divisive) art style, and letting them mix and match Shonen Jump aesthetics.

Today, Bandai Namco and developer Spike Chunsoft offered a sneak peek at Jump Force’s custom character creator and a few of the options we’ll have at our disposal. And the options look extensive enough to let you create a character with green Vegeta hair who can wear Naruto’s jacket and Shikamaru Nara’s pants, or slap Android 18’s hair on a One Piece avatar with powers drawn from Saint Seiya.

Jump Force appears to feature no shortage of spiky anime hairstyles for the men ...

... and plenty of flowing (but still spiky) hairstyles for the women.

Clothing options for the game appear to be unisex as well, but it’s not clear how extensive these options will be.

Players will apparently be able to mix and match powers and abilities from a variety of Shonen Jump manga. Here’s an avatar in a full Vegeta getup equipped with the Galick Gun from Dragon Ball, Pegasus Meteor Fist from Saint Seiya, Onyx Chidori from Naruto and Godspeed from Hunter X Hunter.

At the very least, Jump Force looks like it will be entertaining for its custom character creator alone.

Jump Force is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Feb. 15, 2019.
