The popular shonen game Jump Force is adding a mighty addition to its roster with the addition of All Might from My Hero Academia. The powerhouse character fits right in with the already impressive roster that houses favorites from beloved franchises like Death Note, Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, and more.
Bandai Namco has officially announced All Might's arrival, increasing the presence of My Hero Academia in the fighting game for the better. With the anime's Izuku "Deku" Midoriya already having been a launch character for the game, All Might's debut makes the perfect pairing for those who are currently enjoying the fighting title.

We don't have any actual in-game footage of him quite yet, though Bandai revealed they will have something to show here soon. Though we don't have actual gameplay footage, we do have a few screenshots as seen in the tweet from Bandai above.
For those unfamiliar with Jump Force, the game's story is a wild trip where reality is thrown together with the Jump World. With the ever expanding threat of Venoms, the situation definitely looks dire and in need of backup. As for the main narrative, Bandai Namco tells us, "The sudden merger between the Real World and the Jump World, has resulted in chaos enveloping the Earth, with the invading villains leaving a trail of death, destruction and panic in their wake."
"To tackle this new threat, a new team of heroes, the Jump Force, is formed by Director Glover featuring the strongest fighters from across the manga universe. Players will be able to create their own hero, customising their look and fighting moves with elements from across all your favourite franchises, before joining up with the Jump Force to stop the villains in their tracks."
As for the game itself, Jump Force is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
