The latest issue of V-Jump has revealed three more characters for Bandai Namco’s Shonen Jump arena fighter Jump Force. Coming to the game are Trunks form Dragon Ball Z, Boa Hancock from One Piece, and Renju Abarai from Bleach.

Of these three, Trunks probably needs the least introduction with the popularity of the franchise — and the fact that he’s also in Dragon Ball FighterZ. In fact, him being added was likely a given at this point.

The “Pirate Empress” Boa Hancock is the Captain of the Kuja Pirates and one of the “Shibibukai”, 7 pirate warlords who serve as privateers for the world government. She’s also secretly an ally of Luffy and the Straw Hats, having a bit of a crush on him.

Renji Abarai a Soul and the lieutenant of the 6th division under Byakuya Kuchiki. He started of as something of an antagonist, trying to take down series lead Ichigo to be able to arrest Rukia, before eventually becoming an ally later on.

Jump Force is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 14, 2019 in Japan; and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15, 2019 in the West.
