From the 2013 Tokyo Game Show comes a brand new gameplay video for J-Stars Victory VS! Earlier today, three other gameplay videos were released, making this the fourth! What makes this one special is that it shows off local co-op multiplayer gameplay. It’s done in a split screen fashion, as you will note, with the players controlling Luffy and Gintoki.

    Yes, finally my biggest fear has been calmed. Local multiplayer is too awesome.

  • Gamerazor247

    I’ve never read Gintama or watched the anime but I am SO gonna be playing as Gintoki…

  • Bartholomew Kuma

    If your okay with long anime you should check it out. Its incredible, soo funny and has some incredible action scenes, its largely comedy though so give it a couple episodes. I did and I don’t regret it at all, its an amazing series.

  • TobiramaOfKonoha

    this…this is so…magnificent

  • Shippudencave

  • MrLi

    The only thing that dissapoints me about this game is that they choose to put some monkey brat over Tsuna. i need Tsuna. But nonetheless id still get this game. And id be really dissapointed if they put Tsuna dying will mode, and not Hyper Dying will mode

  • metrix96

    pretty sure they wouldnt do that

  • MadMax

    Lame Tsuna is lame, but don’t worry, he eventualy will be in. But there is much more GAR chars that we need like Kenshiro, Jotaro, Darshu etc. Btw. Nice video of gameplay.

  • saiyansgod

    please tell me that it gonna be to the xbox 360 too please !!!!

  • unleashrage

    Nice to know there is local co-op, that should mean a VS option should be in it as well.

  • MrLi

    Sorry to be the bringer of bad news but it wont. PS3 only. Lel.

  • gogeta207

    this game is awesome take my money now

  • Jay Brown

    Dying will mode could be tsuna’s base form and hyper dying will his transformation? I just don’t see how regular tsuna would be playable since, well, he’s a coward.

  • Sasudoi

    Actually, these are good news xD

  • Rafael Martines

    You guy heard that that Namco confirmed JoJo localization right?

  • Judaime Vongola

    Luffy is a beast and not only that but One Piece is more popular than Reborn!, not only that but they haven’t revealed all the characters so Tsuna can still be in

  • Judaime Vongola

    If his base isn’t normal Tsuna, than his base is most likely Hyper Dying Will, and his transformation is different equipment

  • Jussi Knuutila

    Hope that they give us more characters

  • ej

    he meant that baby monkey looking character named Taro Yamada not Monkey D. Luffy.

  • Zenkai

    Luffy and Gintoki seem to be the only ones getting played in these new videos.

    I wanna see Bijuu Naruto and Vegeta D:

  • khunglongconduy

    in all the gameplay of this game,Luffy combo is the most interesting,the combo of this game is bore,I’m looking for the combo action like Storm seiries
    Sorry for my bad in English

  • BeyondTurtlespeed

    *curse of hatred* .. *sigh*

    And what’s the point if you remove half the game? Yeh, talking about those stupid rules. And all those characters banned. Seriously? But not sasuke, becasue you use him?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-WmpoP6ZSs Kira

    I want seiya …..—.— XD

  • diman.wav

    Ура! Буду с братом мочиться!

  • tgohan

    Come on! Wheres lenalee at!? X3

  • tgohan

    Sorry. I accidentally marked down ud comment. Im using my phone to type and i accidentally clicked down. Sorry. I wanted to say that i hope theres one on one vs battle.

  • Shishi Sonson

    the demo only contains goku, toriko, luffy, naruto, gintoki and ichigo

  • Elias

    You see, those two are not in the demo. But I want to see Ichigo and Toriko!

  • Bartholomew Kuma

    She would be really cool, and I love Lenalee but they need to introduce Allen first. But I think out of all the girl characters they could put in Lenalee would be my favorite aside from Himeko (Sket Dance).

  • Bartholomew Kuma

    Yeah, I think thats incredibly awesome, Cant wait to buy it. I was gonna import it, but now I think I’ll just wait a couple months.

  • Bartholomew Kuma

    happens to me all the time.

  • tgohan

    Heck yeah!! I love lenalee, too. can you imagine how sick remove that would be? I imagine her using her legs for attacking, obviously, but also a speedy character. Man i really hope she gets in!! She and teen gohan (cell saga) are really the only ones i really wish for.

  • MoustachePikachu

    Any ideas if this confirms 4-player? I am hoping to play this with friends/family :/

  • MrLi

    Cabio Forma :D . And also Cambio Forma version X would be beast.

  • MrLi

    I love Luffy and the One Piece series. I meant the Monkey Jungle brat Taro that i never heard of his existence till two days ago.

  • unleashrage

    Yeah I hope there is one on one vs battle too.

  • Kuwabara

    me too dude I wasnt impressed with goku but luffy looks like the one with the best combo so far

  • sigma2503

    im so happy

  • nicholas radonski

    I hope they add tsuna sawada to the game. Also some antagonists who else wants to play as Madara Uchiha, Shinobu Sensui, Aizen, Meruem and Bermuda Von Veckenschtein that’d be awesome. They should also add some female characters like Sakura, Nami or Robin and Rukia or Orihime they shouldn’t just have all men in the game.

  • nicholas radonski

    it could be like his base is hyper dying will and his transformation is the oath flame or reborn appears and shoots him with a dying will bullet and he enters ultimate dying will mode that’d be cool

  • subsamuels

    I was worried this wouldn’t have local co op or multiplayer because of battle of Z, so happy it does.

  • Kid Kaos


  • ElementShield

    Yes,I was getting kind of worried.

  • Elias

    But, isn’t D-Gray Man Jump square? Don’t get me wrong it use to be Shonen Jump, but it is now a product of Jump Square. So most likely will not be in the game.

  • Dudeondrugs

    IKR!? After yesterday gameplay i thought it had only Online multiplayer.. ._.

  • Judaime Vongola

    OOOOHHH my bad lmao

  • animaniac

    free roaming battle

  • Norman Fong Ochoa

    Fans could vote for female characters as well…

  • OGbemi

    X-Burner…AIR ftmfw

  • MrLi

    Or Double X-Burner from the manga. Oh man. And if Hibari is playable. Or Reborn himself.

  • monkey d goku

    i need to watch gintama

  • NewVirtue

    In there defense, isn’t One piece #1 in japan right now? and for Gintoki…do you have any idea how unbelievably hard it is for Gintama fans to get any fight game love lol. I think the last fighting game for gintama was JUS

  • Michael Graham Jr

    im getting this game no matter what

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    I’ll confirm it for you… yes, it will be 4 player

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    man im awesome

  • shankman017

    Oh yeah Sensui Sinobu! It would be fcking awesome if they include him and Toguro x)

  • Darkblondie

    as long as it is Jump it shouldn’t be problem I guess. They all belong to Shueisha

  • FireNFlames

    I was really siked for this game, but watching gameplay of it as of now, it looks like the fighting is utterly slow paced. I dislike that, but I hope for it to pick up speed. It just looks really awkward when they fight.

  • Kenny

    So anyone know if there will be a 4 player local option.

  • saskuefan999

    you sure are

  • saskuefan999

    im from the future to tell you tsuna is in the game :D
