Piccolo, Cell, Rurouni Kenshin to appear in Jump Force

Four new challengers have entered the fray in Jump Force. Two come from an already established world while the other two characters are coming from a new world. The already established world introduces Piccolo and Perfect Cell to the fight. And the newly introduced world comes to us from the world of Rurouni Kenshin, also known as Samurai X, which introduces Himura Kenshin and Shishio Makoto.

The Rurouni Kenshin world introduces Himura Kenshin, the famous assassin known as Hitokiri Battousai. He is a wandering samurai offering help to those in need as an atonement for all the murders he committed. He uses a sword with a blade that has the cutting edge facing inward, making it nearly incapable of killing. The next fighter introduced is Shishio Makoto, who has taken over as head of the assassin guild that Kenshi left. Makoto plans to bring the Japanese government down after being nearly killed by government officials for knowing all of their secrets.

The next two players are Piccolo and Cell from the Dragon Ball Z world. Piccolo, also known as Ma Junior, is a Namekian who is both the child of and a reincarnation of King Piccolo. He vowed to kill Goku for killing his father, but as time progressed, he became part of Goku’s inner circle of friends. The next character introduced is Cell, the greatest creation of Dr. Gero who possessed all the abilities of the greatest fighters to have inhabited or visited Earth. This makes him one of the greatest and deadliest foes to ever be in the Dragon Ball series.

Does the new addition get you excited for the game? Let us know via our socials. Jump Force will be released on February 15, 2019.
