Namco Bandai has announced that a new game in the Jump series is in development. The Jump series is a 2D fighting game series a little in the vein of Super Smash Brothers in that it brings together characters from tons of different mangas that have been published in Jump Magazine. No word on release date or even what consoles the game, titled Project Versus J, is being developed for at this time. If you wish to check out the previous Jump titles, Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars, they are Japan only games, but given the DS’s lack of a region lock and the vast community of fans for the games, you should have no hard time finding and playing the games to their fullest.
The price and release date have yet to be announced.
