Bandai Namco had been fairly quiet on the content front for Jump Force since My Hero Academia's Todoroki kicked off Season 2 back in May though now we know which highly-requested fighter is coming next to the arena fighter.

The publisher announced this morning that Yu Yu Hakusho's Hiei will be joining the roster as the second piece of DLC for Character Pass 2 later this fall except for Nintendo Switch owners who'll need to wait quite a bit longer.

Hiei will mark the third Yu Yu Hakusho member to join the Shonen Jump all-star cast alongside Yusuke and the Younger Toguro brother who looks to take the fight in a different direction than the other two.

The humanoid demon fights with a sword and uses his third-eye to grant him special telekinetic powers to fight both up close and at a bit of a distance. He'll also have access to the 'Dragon of the Darkness Flame' techniques for all of you old-school dub watchers out there.

A specific release date wasn't confirmed, but the window puts him somewhere between September and December while Switch owners will need to wait until 2021 for an unspecified reason.

Season 2 will only be half as big as the intial round of DLC which means there's still three fighters left to be unveiled. We don't know their identities yet, but we do seem to know they'll be representatives from Hunter x Hunter, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Bleach.

Jump Force first released in early 2019 by bringing together iconic manga and anime characters from the likes of Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh! and so much more. The game is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and the newly released Deluxe Edition for Switch.
