Bandai Namco announced today that the first set of DLC for the Shonen Anime fighter Jump Force. The set includes three different fighters; Biscuit, Seto Kaiba, and All Might.
Biscuit is a character from Hunter x Hunter. Her abilities include immense strength and speed among other things. Seto Kaiba is from Yu-Gi-Oh, where he is the rival of the main protagonist Yugi Moto. Kaiba uses his iconic Blue Eyes White Dragons as well as the Egyptian God card Obelisk, the Tormentor. All Might is the mascot of the current phenomenon My Hero Academia and is the mentor of the main protagonist Deku (Midoriya) and passes down his power of All for One to him.
This is the first set of characters to come out for Jump Force and the plan is to have six more characters to be added to the game which have all been announced after a leak. According to the roadmap of the game that Bandai Namco released it looks as though each batch of DLC characters will be released in groups of three. If the road map ends up staying true to itself we can expect the second batch of DLC characters sometime in August.
A trailer featuring these three DLC characters was released today, which you can see below. You can purchase the Jump Force character pass for $29.99 giving you access to all nine DLC characters. There is also an option to purchase each character one by one for $3.99 each in case there are certain characters that do not interest you. Jump Force is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and can be picked up on Amazon.

Earlier this month, we found out that Seto Kaiba of Yu-Gi-Oh! fame would be making his way to Jump Force as a part of the game’s first DLC drop, but beyond some screenshots, we didn’t really have a good look a the character in action. Now, that’s all changed as Bandai Namco has released a brand new trailer and centered entirely around Yugi Muto’s greatest rival.
The trailer itself is pretty short, only clocking in at around 20 seconds, however, it does give players a good look at some of Kaiba’s attacks, including one that looks like it’s based off the card Deck Destruction Virus, as well his summons, lines, and more. We even get a quick look at Obelisk the Tormentor in action, which I must say, is incredibly badass. Of course, you can check out the trailer for yourself at the end of the article. Unfortunately, the trailer isn’t dubbed in Japanese (this part shouldn’t come as a surprise since the game itself only features a Japanese track) but it also doesn’t feature English subtitles, so if that’s not your thing then you’re out of luck.
Seto Kaiba is set to be released for season pass owners sometime this May. As of the time of this writing, an exact release date has not yet been announced.
Jump Force is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. DualShocker’s own Jordon Boyd reviewed the game and ultimately thought it was a disappointment. If you want to pick up the game on Amazon, you can do so by clicking here.

Today, Bandai Namco revealed that Seto Kaiba of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series will be making his way into Jump Force as the game’s first DLC character. Kaiba will be making his way into the game alongside two other unannounced characters in May. Additionally, Bandai Namco has also given fans their first look at the content roadmap through August. You can check it out for yourself below.
Seto Kaiba made his first appearance in the first episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! and acted as Yugi Moto’s rival throughout a large portion of the series. I’d say that Yugi’s character was a highlight for me in Jump Force as he used his classic Dark Magician card to attack opponents, with special appearances from Dark Magician Girl and Slifer the Sky Dragon as well. I personally can’t wait to see Kaiba inevitably use the Blue-Eyes White Dragon and maybe, just maybe, Obelisk the Tormenter.
If you’ve been on the fence about picking up Jump Force, why not give our official review a read? While the game certainly has some issues it needs to buff out, hopefully, the development team will be able to fix up some of the problems players and reviewers had with the game. It’s always nice to see a developer putting some support behind a title in the form of plenty of free content on top of some paid DLC. Maybe in a few months, Jump Force will be a little more worthwhile.
Jump Force is available now on a variety of platforms including PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The modding community has been hard at work on the PC version to bring fighters like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo and Master Chief from Bungie and 343’s Halo series.
