The anime crossover game made its debut at the Electronic Entertainment Expo event as part of Bandai Namco Entertainment's video game lineup.

'Bleach' officially added to the roster

According to Crunchyroll, Bandai Namco Entertainment has officially announced that "Bleach" characters Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Chochiki, and Aizen Sosuke will be playable characters in "Jump Force." The Japanese game publisher also provided new images for each character, along with a new arena, Hong Kong.

The "Bleach" characters were first hinted at in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine and their appearances are based from the "Thousand Year Blood War" arc.

The game already has an impressive lineup of characters with their own unique styles and abilities. However, not every character from "Jump Force" is playable, as Nakajima stated that players cannot use Light and Ryuk due to them being "too powerful," but they will have an important role in the main story.
