Bandai Namco previously announced that Dragon Ball's Piccolo and Perfect Cell alongside Kenshin Himura and Makoto Shishio would be joining Jump Force's playable roster, but more are apparently on their way outside of the base set of characters.

Digital pre-orders for Jump Force's various editions are now available which reveal that nine new fighters will be coming in the title's Character Pass after it launches in February 2019. The identities of said DLC characters has not been revealed, and we likely still have more characters waiting to be shown off before Valentine's Day of next year.

Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition of Jump Force will include the Character Pass and access to the fighters four days before they release to the public along with the game for $89.99. Jump Force's Ultimate Edition includes everything mentioned above plus three day early access to the game, 16 t-shirts for avatar customization and the Jump Start Pack, which includes consumable in-game items, for $99.99.

Along with this announcement came a slew of new screenshots for the arena fighters' avatar creation mode which will allow players to make their own fighter using a mix of original features and those of their favorite Shonen Jump heroes and villains.

These new shots show that avatars can even equip moves from entirely different characters, as one image shows a character mapped with attacks from Vegeta of Dragon Ball Z, Sasuke from Naruto and Pegasus Saiya from Saint Saiya.

Jump Force is now available for pre-order on most digital storefronts and is set to launch on February 15, 2019. You can check out the new screenshots of the game's avatar customization below.
