Waiting for more details or info on the upcoming brawler for the PS Vita and the PS3, J-Stars Victory Vs.? So what we know so far is that Ichigo Kurosaki, Monkey D. Luffy, Goku, Toriko, Himura Kenshin and Naruto all feature kicking seven shades out of each other, all coming together for Shonen Jump’s 45th anniversary celebrations.
New information suggests that the rounds will be a two on two affair with one character acting as main while the other will be a support character. Needless to say, the two characters can come together to unleash some devastating combos with destructive results. The players will have the aid of a gauge on the screen holding 3 different parts that when fully charged is used in the aforementioned special attacks. Feast your eyes on the scans below which show Goku unleashing a Kamehameha in the air while Naruto then completes the move by firing off a Rasenshuriken.
Either way, it’s shaping up to be a fantastic looking game in the style of Jump Superstars back in the day on the Nintendo DS.
The act of covering your car with your favourite anime, manga, gaming or any other character in Japan is known as Itasha and while it isn’t common on the streets of Tokyo, it is in the world of race cars.
This was never more obvious in Malaysia a couple of weekends ago for the SuperGT 3, which for racing fans, is the only SuperGT race that’s held overseas. As well as many Itasha cars being present, there were also grid girls or as they’re also known, Race Queens.
