Jump Force launched back in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One before getting ported to Switch. The game does suffer from a variety of issues, but it can still be fun to play, as highlighted by Dave in his review.
Jump Force has major problems, but it can actually be really fun. It feels tedious when playing missions, and repetitive at times in combat. But using your favourite characters' abilities in battle remains fun throughout. It's going to be an acquired taste, but anime fans will actually find a lot to enjoy here. Just stick to the online play, where you can remain blissfully ignorant of the awful cutscenes and animation.
Jump Force is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One worldwide. The game will no longer be available digitally starting from February 7th.
