Bandai Namco's major manga crossover brawler, Jump Force, is set for release this week, and the company has shared the game's official launch trailer this morning to celebrate its arrival.

In Jump Force, players can take many of the most widely popular characters from the various classic manga series found in Shonen Jump — a weekly Japanese manga anthology — into battle in teams of three. Featured on the playable launch roster you'll find characters such as Dragon Ball Z's Goku and Vegeta, Naruto, Jotaro Kujo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Yugi Muto of Yu-Gi-Oh! fame, and a slew of others.

Jump Force's launch trailer shares a glimpse at the story mode as the world falls into chaos. We see story-only characters such as Light an Ryuk from Death Note here, as well as newcomer Kane — a villain designed by Dragon Ball series creator, Akira Toriyama.

After revealing characters at a steady pace, Bandai Namco recently confirmed that the fighters we have seen so far will indeed make up Jump Force's launch roster. Upon release, fans can look forward to trying out 42 different playable combatants.

The roster won't end there, however, as Jump Force is expecting nine DLC characters post-launch. At this time, the identities of these additional fighters is unknown.

Jump Force is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this Friday, February 15th.
