Jump Force Confirms Dragon Ball Z’s Majin Buu is Joining the Fight

by Liana Ruppert

The popular Shonen game Jump Force is adding even more to its impressive roster, this time by adding Majin Buu, a villain from Dragon Ball Fighter Z, into the mix. Bandai Namco revealed the new character and his Summer release with a brand new trailer over on their Twitter page: 

Though not with an exact release, we know that Majin Buu (Good) will be making his way to the roster with all of his pink cape-wearing glory later this Summer. Though Buu himself has made some interesting design changes in the past, Jump Force looks like its wanting to retain the classic Buu look – something longtime Dragon Ball fans can appreciate. 

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.”
