Bandai Namco has announced that four new playable characters have been added to the Jump Force roster, as well as four original story characters, created by Dragon Ball's Akira Toriyama.

The four new characters, shown in the video above, are Killua and Kurapika from Hunter X Hunter, and Yusuke and Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho. They will join the playable roster which includes Goku and Frieza from Dragon Ball, Monkey D Luffy from One Piece, Naruto—who Luke beat the hell out of, during his time with the game at E3—and Light Yagami from Death Note.

The story characters, created specifically for Jump Force by Akira Toriyama, cover multiple roles and are showcased in the video below.

A season pass for the game will release, too, featuring nine extra DLC characters. Jump Force is set for release in February, 2019. The screenshots below should keep you going until then.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
