    for ps3! looks awesome so far

  • Blake DiLenge

    we see naruto and ichigo there so hopefuy they will be in the game too

  • Muhammad Najib

    why xbox360 not included in? 

  • Shogunreaper

    looks like the same type of graphics as the RB series

  • slicethemadara

    if luffy, goku and that dinosaur guy is the only ones then this game is a total failure..but i see luffy and ichigo so lets see if they add them :/ 

  • slicethemadara

    looks awesome but not the character roster..

  • unleashrage

    YESS!! i am so importing this when available!..Toriko on ps3 ftw!, better yet OP, DBZ and Toriko on ps3!

  • unleashrage

    Toriko isn’t no dinosaur guy lol, just a over muscular guy that likes to fling energy shaped knives and forks at people with of course the kugi punch.

  • slicethemadara

    most jump games are for playstation systems..with the exception of naruto and some dbz:)

  • slicethemadara

    yea but who does he fight…. he fights DINOSAURS and monsters :)

  • slicethemadara

    toriko is less known replace him with naruto :)

  • lightstorm28

    I am asking too. This is the same thing with OP Pirate Warriors! -.-”

  • unleashrage

    Yes Toriko is less known and this game is a good chance for it to become more known to the manga/anime community.

  • slicethemadara

    i guess you are right but i hope they have naruto and ichigo in there too :)

  • Ignas

    Listen up, People! Naruto and Ichigo(and probably more characters from these anime) are definitely going to be in the game! They said that they are taking suggestions and I’m pretty sure a lot of people are going to suggest those popular characters and many more.

  • TheGameTagerZ

    They are adding more characters like Naruto, Hunter X Hunter, Gintama, Dr Slump, Bleach. They have a voting poll for the japanese fans. 

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    Toriko is only less known because it started 4 years ago in 2008 while Naruto started 13 years ago in 1999 meaning that it had ALOT more time to rise. Toriko will eventually rise, but they need games like this to help them become more popular and I believe in about 2-3 years Toriko will be around just as popular as Naruto or atleast Bleach. They say Rome wasn’t built in a day and you can’t build a fanbase for an anime/manga in a day either…

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    Because this game will probably just be released and Japan and Europe while North America will probably get it via digital copies(since if Europe gets the game, we legally have to get the game too since Namco Bandai Games America and Europe merged to get around the same games as Japan) and since the Xbox is literally dead in Japan there would be no reason making more copies of a game that will cost them more money just to waste space.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    FUCKING YEAH PS3 FOR THE F!@#$%^ WIN XD

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too, I am so relieve its for PS3 and I was right but worried lol O_O

  • http://Youtube.com/Jmeny14 Killer Popo

    What are you talking about??? Toriko has fought people too in the series. Toriko is a badass since the creator of the manga pretty much intended for him to be like Goku combined with Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star. If you weren’t so close-minded and actually gave Toriko a chance, you may like it. I don’t get why there’s so many people on this website that are too prejudice and branch out to watch anime or read manga that aren’t apart of the big 3.

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Haha the thumb nail of this photo of luffy and goku doing fusion dance was epic 

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Heck ya! if you say the japanese fans are doing the poll then 100% confident that yusuke yuremeshi will be in the game!!!!!!!! * nerd gasm *

  • NSOP

     Hope it has more than just the main characters playable.

  • Kaiser Giygas

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

    No WiiU, 3DS or 360? This is so unfair Bandai….so unfair.
    P.D.: Actually, i don’t think that this game will be on America or Europe, so i’m not so angry. XD

  • http://profiles.google.com/stwhal Simon Halberg

    Toriko is way better than Naruto though. And there are like 200 games with Naruto alone. geez

  • Andy Ricardo

    but… goku is gonna kick everyones butt

  • Ilxus90

    According to Siliconera, fans will be able to vote for their favorite Jump characters that they want in the game. So there surely will be another series on the It.
    So happy that its a PS3 game, XBOX360 fucked up many things in the storm series.

  • Muhammad Najib

    It’s cuz One Piece is only for PS3 or something….. unlucky for the xbox fans here =(     ( include me )

  • Matsu96

    Who cares about Toriko? They should make OPxNarutoxBleach. These are the big 3. DB is also old, it should let the new generations bloom and stay in the background and not interfere.

  • DemmaOppa

    Everything looks nice etc. but really? why Toriko?.

  • http://twitter.com/FPMarco94 Marco

    i do care about toriko and in japan toriko is doing so much better then bleach and sometimes naruto and also toriko is awesome

  • http://twitter.com/HeatForce Jay Brown

    Toriko is pretty cool. Let’s face it, Bleach is in it’s last arc and Naruto will end soon too. Toriko is set to be part of the big three. Plus the powerups, my God the powerups are epic.

  • http://twitter.com/FPMarco94 Marco

    why not its one of the most popular series in japan its good and consistant plus its awesome 

  • ShisuiUchiha88

    OMG! Another big game only for PS3? I feel sorry for xbox owners, but next year is gone be great for us who have ps3. We have Naruto Storm 3, One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 and this Project Versus J ( and who knows what will be the real and full name until the release date ). If i have xbox i would buy ps3 or sold xbox and my all games so i can buy ps3 and these stuffs, because i am anime lover and anime is one part of my life and soul :D

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Nope, if you look closely its not the same as Raging Blast graphics, its similar to One Piece: Pirates Warrior graphics.

  • Darrell Johnson

    Wow…it hurts to have to buy this for PS3. I mean yeah it’s region free but ow…I own like everything but a Sony system.

  • http://twitter.com/_Darkblondie_ Darkblondie

    how come toriko doing better than Naruto in Japan? Naruto has sold 6.5 million this year and toriko 3 million. And toriko is not popular as much as Bleach worldwide I don’t know why Shonen Jump supports this series so much

  • Shogunreaper

     Meanted RB2

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/thegamecraze Mister Kring

     Toriko is a good manga in my opinion and so is OP and DB. But here’s the reason why this is allowed, Eiichiro Oda (One Piece) is best friends with Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro (Toriko) and they are both big fans of and are respected by Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball), a OPxNarutoxBleach game would never happen XD because the artists have to like and get on with the other artists. Oda wouldn’t mind that game but Kubo and Kishimoto would not agree to it, why? Kishimoto doesn’t like Kubo for some reason? Have no idea why just heard it in an interview they did with Kishimoto on a possible crossover that WSJ wanted them to do (a cover page).

  • http://twitter.com/_Darkblondie_ Darkblondie

    graphics seems like Raging Blast games. Development team of this game is Spike?

    i own a ps3 system and it pains me to get this game…..i just think the xbox is better..

  • http://twitter.com/Mark_Currie Mark Currie

    Wow the graphics look really good. Would love to be able to play As Ichigo, Natsu from Fairy Tail or Tsuna from Katekyou Hitman Reborn with these graphics as well. Let’s hope the fighting system is good too!

  • SalsaMixRedevil666

    Me too!!! Thank God it’s on PS3.

    If I didnt have this game I’d be very piss off !!!!, but now I’m VERY VERY VERY VERY HAPPY, YES!!!!! XD

  • slicethemadara

    yeah i own both systems but i personally think xbox is better…..ill get storm 3 for xbox, pirate warriors for ps3 and im not getting project j because im not liking it soo far…

  • slicethemadara

    omg :o fairy tail and Katekyou Hitman Reborn are like one of the best anime’s ever….

    (like if you agree)

    Fanboys for a certain system still exist?

    fairytail aint from JUMP 

  • shafiq95

    lol the irony…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ENRWH6PGHSJ274LYJOEMUZXHDM LiL JJ

    This seems interesting, I mean it’s exciting to know you can put Goku v Luffy but I wonder what other characters are gonna be in it and what the fighting system will be like. I’ve only seen a little bit of Toriko but I couldn’t really get into it much,it just didn’t capture me. Idk I might give it another go but yeah, I do like his character design though.

  • http://twitter.com/Mark_Currie Mark Currie

    Oh isn’t it? Oh well :( I’d like Blue Exorcist too but I don’t think that’s Jump either.

  • shafiq95

    blue exorcist is from monthly shounen JUMP…but im pretty sure this game only includes characters from weekly shounen jump…

  • http://twitter.com/Gapinbluewaffle Matthew Timmerman

     If It wasn’t popular, it wouldn’t have ran as long as it already has. By god the fanboys still run wild with their “My manga is better than yours!” All of what you’re saying about Toriko was said about Naruto, Bleach and One Piece in their early production. Back then, Manga wasn’t as big as it is today in the world market also, it’s kinda hard for a new series to topple powerhouses.

    Basically what I’m saying is, get off your damn high horse about certain Manga. Psyren was a great Manga and I’m sure most people haven’t heard of that before either!

  • unleashrage

    why not?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/5GTZEULIZ4UXR7AQAGIIES2GII KokoroInfected

    fairytail would be great. Also id like to point out it is from jump. weekly jump.

    Awesome, now it needs to come to NA!!

  • shaquillejackson

    Naruto, Dragonball z, One piece, Bleach and Fairy tail. As long as 4 out of 5 of my favorite animes are in am happy.

  • Anthony Mendez

    is Naruto Gonna Be in it????

  • http://twitter.com/Mark_Currie Mark Currie

    Probably not, since Jump Ultimate Stars was never released out west either, mainly because of the numerous manga properties that have different publishers in the west.

    But hey, at least we can import this one.

  • BIgMam

    2 of the pics show all three of them, so does it mean free-for-all or support or team type battle, either way this game has lots of potential

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_D53NAWQLSHDBCU2ABJORXWTLUE Zack

    I think reborn, and fairytail would be great in this. And if they were to add monthly manga maybe Blue Exorcist, Deadman Wonderland, Soul Eater, and Zetman. 

    Though no offense to naruto but he doesn’t belong in this game. Just can’t see him in this.

  • unleashrage

    hopefully them all :)

    IM SO PUMPED!

  • Babymario26

    Just so everyone knows Fairytail is part of the Weekly Jump (IN JAPAN ONLY)

    I’d like to see…

    Naruto
    Kid goku
    Tsunayoshi 
    Yusuke Urameshi
    Minato
    Killer bee
    Reborn
    and Yamamoto (from reborn also)
    There are a couple more id like to see

  • ShisuiUchiha88

    Naruto Storm games better look on PS3 so don’t talk nonsense. All games made in by japanese studios are design first on PS3 and latter they create it for xbox. That’s why games like COD and many other games looks better on xbox, because they first create it for xbox and later of ps3. And studios from USA looks to create everything better on xbox. We who have ps3 don’t pay for internet and it’s rare that ps3 owner gets baned from PSN, on xbox every day somebody is baned. I am not microsoft hater but i am pretty sure that Sony and japanese looks to all their fans and people who buy their products be happy and satisfied.

  • uchihalord1994

    I soo thought goku was gonna fuse with luffy ! xD haha! even tho this isn’t gonna come out for xbox :/ cuz i dont have a ps3 , im still happy for those who have ! enjoy it u guys :)  

  • Paul Brian

    Fairy tail is also terrible. Though I shouldn’t state the obvious. :p

  • http://twitter.com/Mark_Currie Mark Currie

    Naruto is one of the three biggest Jump manga, there’s no way he wouldn’t be in this. He was in Jump Ultimate Stars on the DS after all alongside Luffy and Goku and the rest.

    Wow. u are a good person for that. Usually, a person would have said so much profane words about not owning a ps3 for this, but u are different. I would totally buy u a ps3 so u can enjoy this with the rest of us if I knew u and stuff.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/QAQN42S2FAM74B7M3BOUXM6SSE Donald Barnett

    Need more females like Medaka and Lala ( the original TO Love Ru used to be in WSJ).

  • http://twitter.com/Turbotrup Turbotrup

    It looks outstanding, but if there won’t be at least Bleach in it and/or Naruto (though I would rather to see Bleach more than Naruto in this), I won’t buy it. Seriously, how long were we waiting for DBZ X Naruto X Bleach game? And instead of that, we get (no offense OP & Toriko fans) 1 of the most dissapointing Anime mix.

  • gracien jean

    this is why people should get ps3 because most shonen jump games come out for ps3 example: one piece pirate warriors NUNS and im a one piece fan and i recommend ps3 but xbox is still good

  • shafiq95

    lol wishful thinking dude ,fairytail is not in weekly jump (FACT).It is part of Shonen Magazine which is published by Kodansha. NOTE.Air gear and HAJIME NO IPPO etc are part of it as well.

  • shafiq95

    he was in d.o.n dude

  • uchihalord1994

    Haha! thank you very much ^.^ Yea it sucks tho~ but oh well , Xbox is fine as well :) im going to enjoy it on youtube anyway :) alot of friends of mine have a ps3 so it won’t be a problem! but thnx anyway friend ! 

  • uchihalord1994

    So its not just those three main animes :) ? btw whos the guy with the orange hair right next to naruto ? 

  • Ilxus90

    I want obviously Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Dragon Ball and Toriko characters, but let´s ask for the non obvious ones, like Okumura Rin, Aono Tsukune with his vampire transformation from the manga, Yugi, Kaiba, Seiya, Shiryu, Medaka, Kumagawa Misogi, Naze Youka, Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, Gon, Hisoka, Kurapika, Lala, Momo, Konjiki no Yami, Gintoki, Tatsugami Oga, Urameshi Yusuke, Rikuo, Yuki Onna, etc.
     Hope we can have a real variety on the characters and not use only a few from the most popular series :)

    Nuuuuuuuu, I was hoping for a Jump Ultimate Stars sequel!
    Wait…..there’s going to be more than just DBZ, OP, and Toriko?!
    YES!!!!
    But this will never leave Japan :(
    So many different companies and rights like what happened to Jump Ultimate Stars.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    OH…FUKING…YES… This game will kill, might have to get it for both PS3 and Vita. And the scan with three of them in one, looks like it’ll be a 4 player battle royale type of game. So looking forward to this.

    What’s the stuff with the other anime/manga below it?

    This is the second scan where they show something related to other things with a bunch of other series right under the game. Are they teasing us? Again, i doubt a game branded as the “Ultimate Jump” game and only a code name “Project Versus J” will only have 3 Shonen franchises.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Very true, but I would import. If I see gameplay that’s halfway decent, import all day.

  • Heero Yuy

    Graphics are close to Zenkai Battle Royale, and I doubt spike has anything to do w/ this

  • Heero Yuy

    This is the chance of a life time to get Hitman Reborn! and Beelzebub into a good game. I’m glad about Toriko getting some recognition as of late, but dammit I want Tsuna and Oga in a GOOD PS3 crossover game.

  • XGriever

    yes you can go online despite it being of a different region. Though you might be greeted by lag.

  • mvsmith

    This raises tons of questions. Well first, HELL YEAH FOR PS3/PSVITA! I was really scared it would be for wii-u for some reason. I had a feeling it wouldn’t be for 3DS even though there have been a few anime games for 3DS already. But it seems that vita anime wise hasn’t been getting any love. I had a feeling it was 50/50 ps3 or wii-u. I really hope that this is a current trend and future anime games that come out for PS3 have a vita version. You listening cyberconnect?

    This almost feels like when PROJECT NARUTO PS3 was announced and the early scans of it. I have a feeling this might be in development for a year or so. Maybe that’s why they are asking fans who should be in it. But it could be released shortly in 2013. Since it’s “Project” and “Versus” I have a feeling that they just want people to know Toriko, One Piece, and DBZ are in it but that others will be in it. It’s pretty obvious naruto will be in it. Hard to tell if it will be like DON right now but I’m all for that. I really want soul eater, death note, yyh, blue exorcist, fist of the north star, and I really want D. Grayman but I know that’s not jump anymore. JUS was probably one of the best portable fighting games ever. People called it anime smash bros. The characters in the game, stages, the music, and the online. I still have my game cartridge with all my saved data even though I sold my DS. I would love for this to be some sequel to it. For some reason I really feared that the next jump game would be for 3ds or Wii-u. I have nothing against the two systems or nintendo but the region locking is crap and this game will sell WELL since there aren’t region restrictions.

    Now can we get a bleach heat the soul PS Vita game?

    Guess not. Neither is Inuyasha which some people were asking for in the topic about the previous scan (not sure about here).

  • unleashrage

    likewise

  • unleashrage

    I’d say 4 from each show if possible as Toriko basically has only 4 main heroes while everyone else is useless. Yeah it does look like a 4 player battle royale type of game and so far from the scans it looks awesome. I do hope Beelzebub and Reborn characters make it if there are more series than just dbz, op and toriko. :)

  • unleashrage

    yes you can i got the Japanese version of the one piece ps3 game and it was fine. E.U and N.A versions of it don’t work online with the Asian regions. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    K, thanks. So is a Japanese account (which I have) needed then if this game won’t allow for cross region play (which I don’t see why it would considering the slim chance of localization).

  • unleashrage

    I play the one piece game on my U.K account and it is fine, so it will be fine to play it on your main account if your main isn’t a JP account. Just for DLC you would need to download it off JP PSN but the DLC will still work on your non JP account.

  • http://twitter.com/tailedkid kevin chavez

    Its like super smash bros but with anime

  • Sharnerius1

    YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I told you the graphics looked like Ps3 graphics!!!!!!! xD.I can’t wait.Also can you guys elaborate on why there would be licensing issues in America?

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/7TYZTHF3VU74LKGKHOFUHQVJEM ace

    they already had Battle Stadium D.O.N. that did that

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    It seems the game is VERY early in development considering the lack of a true title. I think their asking for fan input on characters is legit: they have not yet come close to finalizing the roster or even the franchises that will be included.

    I know you didn’t mention this, but this feels very different from CC2s NUNS request for suggestions. They didn’t start taking suggestions until nearly a year into Storm 3′s development (evidenced by them confirming a 2 and a half year development time). But this is very early, and only the 3rd scan after being revealed no more then 2 weeks ago. i think our suggestions (mostly Japanese fans obviously, but we could get a few words in) will be taken very seriously.

    As far as release, I see late 2013 to mid-2014 since the game, I bet, will focus more on the fighting and crossovers then a full fledged story mode based on the past 2 Jump games (thus less development time). Yes, the PS4 might be out by then, but Japan tends to slack a bit when it comes to developing games for new hardware.

  • PikaPwn

    Well I did import JUS and JSS, but it would be nicer to play the game in my own language…..will there be patches?

  • Durose James

     actually there is no licensing issue for America because dragon ball and one piece have over sea licensing that’s the reason why we get dragon ball and one piece game in North America and as for toriko it shouldn’t have any problem with the licensing either.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    There will be other franchises involved. They are taking requests for characters (from any jump franchise). SI reported that right in the post, and you can see the other franchises right below where it says “Playstation 3″ meaning that too is a part of the game announcement.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Because each of the Shonen franchises are licensed by different companies outside Japan. For example, Funimation has the license for DBZ and One Piece, while Viz Media has the license for Naruto. 

    With the artworks of different franchises beneath the screenshots, the request for characters, and the fact it says “Playstation 3″ right by them makes it probable these requests will include any Jump franchise the fans want. Plus, a game can’t be an “Ultimate Jump” or a celebration of 45 years (45 years goes much further back then DBZ) with only 3 franchises. I refuse to believe they’d brand it that if that were the case.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_D53NAWQLSHDBCU2ABJORXWTLUE Zack

    I know but I don’t know why but I think Naruto doesn’t belong here. I mean maybe because of Storm 3. I mean with Naruto it’d just be cool if he stayed in storm 3 not this. Hed just drag it down IMO. 

    But I will preorder NUNS3 and nothing against him but I don’t know.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Maybe. That would be up to the community, not the developers.

    Oh god please tell me they decide to give it to XBOX users too at the last minute…

  • Sharnerius1

    Really?I wasn’t aware that you had to licence the series to come in and dub it,I always thought that they just had the voice actors come in and record the lines.I also thought that since they only licence the anime series,it wouldn’t matter here.

    Aren’t One Piece,Dragon ball,and Toriko+,all animated and dubbed with with Toei while Naruto and Bleach are by studio perriot?They don’t have licensing issues in Japan.Funimation and Viz don’t seem like they would have much problems since they worked together for Neon Ally.Idk

    Ignore this

    It’s possible. We’re just speculating is all. I would love for it to be localized, but licensing issues do get in the way sometimes (it’s the biggest reason for non-localizations or subtracted content given by JP game companies).

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    That’s another hint at no localization. Putting it on the XBOX would boost sales tremendously in other regions.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Lol, this happens to me too. Tried to reply to my comment, huh? ^_^

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KMVC2AHUM6A6GYY2VMIFBFBGIU SuperdeadlyKing

    lol really this is great news i just hope the game play and character roster is good though i normally play only as a few normally like Goku,luffy vegeta (he better be in! nah of course hes in! =D)   if these guys don’t give us outside japan then i have no choice for the first time every to buy an imported game. Goku vs luffy!!!!

  • SuperSaiyan_TheKidGoku

    Add Ranma Saotome in and this game will be golden

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    I believe Persona 4 is Golden. If you don’t get the reference, shame on you. >_<

  • *Super~Sayian*

    Never seen a game with Goku in it that wasn’t localized. 
    - except for GT bout I think 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P4PUH52YW6UHRYJFQA57NJUW4 Alex Marrero

    Bout was localized, it just came out after the PS1 died.

    Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butoden for the DS (a fighting game similar to budokai, a little different though) was never localized.

    Also, Dragon Ball Heroes (the 3DS card battle game with Budokai animations) has no release date for regions outside Japan.

  • daniel rocha

    is naruto and ichigo going to be in this game too?

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Me too, oh, I forgot to tell you, add me on this PSN account, SonicXTREME1989.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

     The title of the game should be called JUMP ULTIMATE STARS: BATTLE ROYALE SHOWDOWN.

  • bonezai

    Namco Bandai’s answer to PlayStation All Stars? Which will be better?

  • slicethemadara

    ……all stars is pretty terrible because of the lack of characters and the worst stages…… so i think project versus j has much more potential :)

  • unleashrage

    All Stars was stupid as you could only eliminate people by using a special, i’m sure this game will be way better.

  • unleashrage

    sounds good with characters from a minimum of 15 series.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    lol, same feeling as mine XD

  • fosia_osman

    we all know that Naruto and Ichigo is going to be in this game, if  not i will stil buy it :)

  • slicethemadara

    no it does not it looks the same for both system, cyber connect said it.

  • slicethemadara

    i would not buy it if they don’t include naruto and ichigo….just a warning

  • http://www.facebook.com/maaz.s.shaikh Maaz Shaikh

    Anyone notice Naruto ‘running’ in the top left pic of the scan? XD

    We see Luffy kicking Goku and then… slightly towards the right of the mighty saiyan…? A WILD SHINOBI APPEARS! LMAO

  • NSOP

     You’re right, it does look a lot like NS Naruto, also on the pic below with Goku using the Kamehameha, there seems to be a fire attack clashing with it.

    LOL keen eye

    Luffy vs 3 orange dudes, two of which are in tribute to Goku.

  • slicethemadara

    *sigh*……..it’s a joke

    i feel like you read the new “Naruto Confirmed” article before you posted this comment, since the article was posted 2 hours before this comment

  • 343 Industries

    Really not for xbox 360….

  • RedDragon10

    Are you really surprised?

  • RedDragon10

    A thousand times yes.  I would love for both characters to be in the game.

  • RedDragon10

    Fairy tail is terrible?  What makes you say that?

  • romo vincent

    no its a playstation exclusive its our turn

  • Daniel Turner

    not again no 360 y this happens with every anime game 1st on ps3 then cause dosent sell thatt well and people complain and eventually goes to 360 in sequal just skip that part and got to 360

  • Daniel Turner

    just missing natsu and ichigo then best anime game

  • ant dicecco

    Totally importing. I would like to see the four heavenly kings and the rest of the bishukya vs the shinobi alliance vs z warriors vs team uremeshi vs shoen universe

  • jameslorenz100

    well they don’t sell the xbox 360 in japan anyways so that means they would make an xbox 360 just for NA when they have more people using PS3′s to play anime games

  • dragonace

    Needs Himura Kenshin and Future Trunks for a badass sword fight. Also need Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.

  • dragonace

    Also interesting ideas: Bills, the villain from the new Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. Also a lol idea would be to have Kuroko from Kuroko’s basketball and have him just throw basketballs and punch basketballs lol.

  • John Ross

    This game is going to badass! :D  

  • Alexander Plet

    Y U NO Xbox360

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    Goku fusion with monkey= Double idiot

  • bonezai

    agreed. PSASBR is flat, stiff and lifeless. should have been in 3-D also. 

    with this my PS3 is very happy

  • bonezai

    This is the reason why I invested on the PS3  over 360. 
    I knew games like these will come to it and I was right.Japanese local games!
    PS3 is tailor fit to play import Japanese games!
    PS3 FTW

    Fairy Tail is NOT from Shonen Jump. Did you even know?

  • http://www.facebook.com/norman.fongochoa Norman Fong Ochoa

    Ranma is not from Shonen Jump. Do some research.

  • http://www.facebook.com/norman.fongochoa Norman Fong Ochoa

    I could answer.
    Fairy Tail has:
    -An unconceivable amount of fanservice even for a Shonen Series.
    -Unseccesful attempts of humor -which is cheesy, by the way-
    -The characters are so generic, and most of the supporting cast who deserves attention dosen’t get it at all and, conversely, minor characters get that attention.
    -The heroes ALWAYS win with the “Power of Friendship” or the fact that they belong to Fairy Tail.
    -Not all arcs are connected, also the main goal seems to be pushed back.
    -Most females, such as Lucy or even Erza, serve just for ecchi, for it seems.
    -The “Heel-face Turn” trope is overexploited to the point that is predictable.
    -If there’s character development, it is undone some arcs after.
    I guess while Fairy Tail is still likable, if it ever dares to compare to One Piece, it would need MORE than these points I described to do so.

  • http://www.facebook.com/norman.fongochoa Norman Fong Ochoa

    Fairy Tail is not from Jump, and none of the monthly mangas you described is from the magazine.
    You shoul do research before stating misconceptions.

  • http://www.facebook.com/norman.fongochoa Norman Fong Ochoa

    Fairy Tail is NOT from Jump, did you know?

  • http://www.facebook.com/norman.fongochoa Norman Fong Ochoa

    Fairy Tail is from Shonen Magazine, by Kodansha.
    Geez, you don’t know anything.

  • RedDragon10

    And I will reply:

    -A little fan service never hurt anyone.  I would question your manhood but that’s a different topic.
    -I find fairy tail HILARIOUS and most fans of the series would agree with me. 
    -FT has some of the most diverse and well developed characters in the entire shonen genre.  If you want to see no character development go watch naruto or bleach. 
    -When do the heroes ever not win?  Stupid point for every shonen series has the hero eventually winning.
    -All arcs are connected.  Do you even watch the series?  How would you not know this?
    -That Lucy and Erza point is the same as your first point.  And this is an idiotic comment as well.  Erza is one of the strongest characters in the series while lucy is pretty much the protagonist.
    -Besides for Gajeel, there really isn’t a heel-face turn trope. You can count Ultear but she doesn’t really join the guild.
    -Character development refers to the overall series, not just a particular arc.

    I don’t think I compared it to one piece but if I did, I was talking more about specific themes such as the bonds between friends and the will to protect them.  FT is one of the best recent shonen series to be released and I would recommend it to any anime fan over the age of 13.

    They just need to make another jump ultimate stars. That was easily one of the best ds games

  • Bardock – SSJ2

    This is counted as one but on PS3 /(^O^)

  • disqus_RR3VTZkhRA

    i hope for wiiU too

  • Flash

    You will get a PS3 eventually. Good people always get there’s in the end :)

  • disqus_jkzjcAVVo3

    No Natsu? What kind of world am I living in where Fairy Tail can’t be considered just as good as Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, One Piece, and Toriko. Again: TORIKO!

  • Sheeta

    a good one because Fairy Tail just doesn’t quite amount to these. The complete lack of main pilot advancement kinda ruins fairy tail and it’s not really as emotionally touching as one piece.

  • dragonslayer.natsu

    fairy tail ain’t on the game cause fairy tail doesn’t belong to jump

  • Luke Thompson

    lol I would love to see that Gomu Gomu Ha!!!!!!

  • Jack

    What about zoro or sanji
