Remember the excitement surrounding Jump Force a few years ago? Anime fans and fighting fans come together to either relive their favorite combat/fantasy battles in countless series, or start a new, ambitious combat experience that touts the huge lineup at launch.I may not have purchased Jump Force when it launched in 2019, but I remember to put together a short biography of each Jump Force character as Game informant intern. I was impressed with the large number of licensed anime shows planned to appear in the game (and was exhausted by the time I wrote all these files). However, early next year, Jump Force’s digital availability and online services will end in the Americas.
Bandai Namco US released a Short statement and fact sheet Post today on Twitter and provide any additional details for fans who plan to play the game after the discontinuation date, “We sincerely thank all Jump Force players and fans for their support; however, all good things must end,” the tweet wrote road. “The availability of Jump Force through digital purchases in the Americas will end at 5pm PST on February 7, 2022.” This decision applies to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC regular/luxury editions of the game.

Sadly, our own Kyle Hilliard doesn’t like Jump Force. He scored the game 6/10 and said at the end of the review: “Although the medium performance caused all the damage to Jump Force, the battle did have a satisfying explosive moment, and the online battle mode worked well. There is a lot of depth to discover in the battle, but it has never really sung to me, nor did it make me excited about the next battle. In most cases, I am happy that I won’t have to repeat the battle after winning, even if I’m performing some Iconic attack in my favorite anime.”
If you are an anime fan who has always been interested in Jump Force but has never had time to get a copy, now may be your only chance; the clock is counting down!
Are you sad to see Jump Force leave? How do you feel about Bandai Namco’s anime cross-border fighting game?
