In recent Jump Force news we got confirmation of My Hero Academia’s Izuku Midoriya to be playable in the game, which makes sense since he’s the protagonist of Shonen Jump’s biggest seller right now. Trunks from Dragon Ball, Boa Hancock from One Piece and Renji from Bleach were also confirmed a few weeks ago.
Jump Force releases next month on February 15, 2019 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
