Anime fans are no doubt very excited to check out Bandai Namco’s Jump Force. For those unfamiliar, Jump Force is an upcoming fighting game by Bandai Namco that brings together several big names in anime, such as Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Death Note, Dragon Ball, and so on.
Previously these animes had their own video games, but this is an all out brawler which brings them all together into one game. Sounds exciting, right? Now if you were looking to check out the game before buying it, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Bandai Namco has announced that the open beta for Jump Force is expected to kick off from the 18th to the 20th of January, 2019.
The open beta will grant players access to 17 different characters in the game, as well as five different stages. Note that the open beta will not run continuously and that there will be different times in which the beta is available, so probably best to double check the announcement for the specific dates so that you don’t miss it.
The game is currently set for a release on the 15th of February, 2019 where it will be playable on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. No mention of the Nintendo Switch was made so it looks like Switch gamers will have to sit this one out.
