Jump Force launched in 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One before being ported to Switch. The game suffers from various issues, but it can still be fun to play, as Dave pointed out in his review.
Jump Force has some major issues, but it can actually be a lot of fun. It seems tedious on missions and sometimes repetitive in combat. But using the abilities of your favorite characters in battle remains fun throughout. It will be an acquired taste, but anime fans will actually find a lot to enjoy here. Stick to the online game, where you can stay blissfully ignorant of the gruesome cutscenes and animations.
Jump Force is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One worldwide. The game will no longer be available digitally as of February 7.
