Jump Force has been garnering an avid fan base ever since the title’s release. Now it would appear that the game will soon be adding a new playable character to its roster.

Jump Force was first released back in Feb. of this year. The title is a classic fighting game with a twist. The playable characters each come from different popular anime franchises.

Among those playable within the game, One Peace’s Monkey D. Luffy, Dragon Ball’s Goku and Yu-Gi-Oh!’s Yugi Moto are all available within the roster. Jump Force publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment has since taken to social media to officially announce that All Might from the hit anime and manga My Hero Academia will be joining the Jump Force roster.

An official release date for All Might has yet to be revealed, though Bandai Namco Entertainment has come forward to state that the character will be released sometime in May. All Might will be the second My Hero Academia character to join the Jump Force roster, as the manga/anime’s protagonist Izuku “Deku” Midoriya is an original character within the game.

Bandai Namco Entertainment’s original statement concerning the upcoming release may be viewed down below. The publisher also offered a small collection of screenshots featuring All Might in action. Check it out down below.

“ALL MIGHT brings Justice to JUMP FORCE! The symbol of peace from My Hero Academia will smash his way to Jump force in May 2019. Plus Ultra! #unite2fight#jumpforce” The publisher stated.
