The greatest assassins of the Bakumatsu Era clash in this crossover arena fighter.

Two more classic Shonen Jump characters have been added to Bandai Namco’s Jump Force. Kenshin Himura and Makoto Shishio from Nobuhiro Watsuki’s Rurouni Kenshin were revealed by Weekly Jump as the latest characters joining the game.

For those not familiar with this classic series, Kenshin is a former assassin for what would eventually become the Meiji government, who later retired and swore never to kill again — resorting to using a reversed-edge blade. Shishio on the other hand was Kenshin’s successor, who later became one of the most iconic villains for the series.

In addition to both, the issue of Weekly Jump also gave out some details on the game’s avatar creation system. Players will be able to customize the hairstyle, face, body type, gender, voice, battle style, and costume (with individual pieces for their top, bottom, arms and legs).

Jump Force arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 14 in Japan, and PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15 in the West.
