A few days ago, Jump Force welcomed three Bleach characters in the crossover anime fighting game, and now the remaining two of those fighters have been confirmed to be playable.
It was recently confirmed that the Bleach protagonist Ichigo will be playable in Jump Force but at the time it was announced, it wasn't clear if Rukia Kuchiki and Sosuke Aizen, two more characters from Tite Kubo's popular manga, will also be playable.
But recently, Anime News Network reported that the latest issue of Shonen Jump revealed that Rukia and Sosuke will be playable fighters in the game. We still don't know what role they'll play in the game's story mode but at least now we know that they'll be joining the roster of confirmed characters from Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece. That brings to a total of nine characters announced for Jump Force: Naruto and Sasuke from Naruto; Goku and Frieza from Dragon Ball; Luffy and Zoro from One Piece; and Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen from Bleach. In the trailer, Death Note characters but the game's producer confirmed that they won't be playable in the game because they would be too powerful.
Jump Force is expected to release in 2019.
