Jump Force is starting to get internet hate for its less than impressive cut scene visuals

Bring on the PlayStation 2 memes...

Jump Force is just three days away from official launch, but footage of the Story Mode has some potential players worried that visuals won't meet 2019's standards.

A Twitter user by the name of Nitomatta posted a 16 second clip of one of the game's cut scenes as a group of heroes chit chat amongst themselves. It came along with the following caption:

"The cut scenes in Jump Force are so bad that characters barely emote and move like they have a stick up their ass." Said tweet has already garnered 7,200 likes and nearly 2,600 retweets. This was just one of a handful of similar posts from other users.

This isn't the first time we've seen unreleased fighting games catch some heat for their visuals, as King of Fighters 14 was relentlessly hounded for its graphics after its initial reveal.

We also have to call back to the story of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, which started to become defined in the public eye by its abysmal pre-release character appearances, an issue that wound up being a major player in the game's eventual downfall.

You can see a full 35 minutes of the game's Story Mode in action via the full video after the jump thanks to MKIceAndFire. Immediately below is a clip taken by Nitomatta and another from @Scourgey which has added audio, but depicts actual in-game footage.
