Jump Force's open beta begins tomorrow, January 18, and we're less than a month away from the game's initial release though character reveals are showing no signs of showing down for new fan favorite Shonen Jump fighters.

In the latest edition of the Weekly Jump magazine in Japan via Ryokutya2089, four new characters were revealed to be on their way to Jump Force's base roster, and they all hail from the Naruto series this time around.

Naruto's son from the popular spin-off series, Boruto Uzumaki, leads the charge here along with other series mainstays in Kakashi Hatake and Gaara along with essentially the final boss of the original manga / anime, Kaguya Otsutsuki.

More story details were shared in the magazine as well confirming what the previous narrative trailer suggested that Vegeta is fighting for the villain team once again thanks to some handy mind-control.

Mami Koyama will be reprising her role as Kaguya in Jump Force though she's actually listed as having two roles in the game on her website. This means that we could see another previously Koyama-voiced character like Arale from Dr. Slump, Saint Seiya's Shaina or possibly even Launch from Dragon Ball — that last one is highly unlikely however — as Siliconera has reported.

No images or scans have been released for the characters as of the time of publishing this, but there are some new trailers for Jump Force showing off its battle system and pre-order bonuses which you can find after the jump.
