As Jump Force gets closer to releasing, fans have gotten more outspoken about which characters they’d like to see added, as to avoid having to shell out extra money to play as their favorites through potential DLC, or the worst case scenario of not getting to see them added at all. Naruto fans have been some of the most outspoken about the addition of more characters, as up until recently, they only had two characters representing the series while One Piece and Dragon Ball each had six characters respectively.
It seems that Bandai Namco heard the fans and confirmed four more Naruto characters as playable in Jump Force. Kakashi Hatake, Gaara, Kaguya Ōtsutsuki, and Boruto Uzumaki have now all joined the roster. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how insanely powerful characters like Kaguya or characters with massive movesets like Kakashi will be balanced. That’s not all the characters announced though, as another was formally announced and one more was leaked in an advertisement.
Its official after multiple researches and getting sent it myself through instagram since you can share ads…

Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventure Of Dai was recently revealed to be part of the roster. Interestingly enough, many knew this ahead of time, as the same leaks also revealed another highly requested character. Thanks to some advertisements that have been posted on multiple sites such Facebook, Jotaro Kujo from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure was revealed to be part of the roster. As Jotaro and Dai were found in the same advertisement and Dai has now been officially revealed, it’s only a matter of time until Jotaro gets an official announcement. This will likely come alongside an official announcement of Dio Brando being a playable character as to continue the theme of both protagonists and antagonists of a series being confirmed together. There is still a little bit of time until the game releases so fans can still hold out hope for characters who haven’t been confirmed.
Jump Force releases on February 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
