Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has revealed two new playable fighters from classic manga Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter X Hunter, Yusuke, Toguro, Kirua and Kurapika have joined the roster of upcoming game Jump Force.
Kirua is the third son of the Zoldyck family – the most infamous and deadly assassins of the world. He was expected to join them, but chased his own fate by running away from home to become a Hunter. Kurapika also had a difficult family history – as the last survivor of his clan. They are both very strong fighters that value their friends and they will do anything to defend them!
The four new characters follow the announcement last week that Yugi Muto, protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh!, will also be a playable character in the game – fighting with his summoned Duel Monsters cards. A new real-world stage is also unveiled, the Himeji Castle one of the most remarkable Japanese site will become an arena for the coming fight.
