Franchise brawler J-Stars Victory Vs+ will feature Japanese voice overs with English subtitles upon its release in North America and Europe. It will launch for Playstation 4, Playstation 3 and PS Vita in summer of 2015.
This is the first time that the series is venturing outside of Japan. Jump, a popular manga series, has previously enjoyed cult status with two fighter releases on Nintendo DS.
It sort of makes sense to go for Japanese voices, since several of the franchises in question aren’t that popular outside of Japan as others. You will, however, be able to fight with Goku from Dragon Ball, Naruto from the similarly named show and Luffy from One Piece.
Battles can be complemented with a roster of support characters as well. These even include some newer names, such as Tetsuya from the currently popular Kuroko no Basuke.
A campaign in J-Stars Victory Vs+ takes the stage to Planet Namek from Dragon Ball, the Hidden Leaf Village from Naruto and Alabasta from One Piece, plus one more location. We’re keeping the popular theme going.
While there may not be English voices, there are a few novelties in the localization. For instance, this is the first time that J-Stars Victory Vs+ will launch on Playstation 4, so hopefully the visuals reflect the newer console.
There is also an Arcade mode in J-Stars Victory Vs+. This changes the game’s normal two-on-two model to a classic one-on-one known from other fighting games.
J-Stars Victory Vs+ features multiplayer with up to four players online.
