There were two awesome fighting games on the Nintendo 3DS that never came to the West, Jump Superstars and the sequel, Jump Ultimate Stars. It featured characters from popular Shonen Jump series including Naruto, Bleach, Ginatama, Ruroni Kenshin and more. Luckily at the time the Nintendo DS wasn’t region locked, so you could import the game and enjoy it.

Now Namco Bandai Games is taking popular Shonen Jump characters from the past and present and having them face off in the ultimate arena on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming game known as J-STARS Victory Vs, which comes out March 19th in Japan. Luckily, the PS3 and Vita are region free if you want to pick up this game, since like Jump Superstars and Jump Ultimate Superstars, this game may not see a release due to licensing issues.
