And for once, it’s not your mum-in-law. The end boss of a fighting game is a time-honoured tradition. From Shao Kahn through to Shen Long (WHERE THE F**K ARE YOU), that’s the chap who will really test your mettle in combat. For J-Stars Victory VS however, prepare to face yourself in final combat.

According to Gematsu, players who shrug their way through an entire slash-fiction library worth of character crossovers will find themselves taking on the “Dark Phantom”, a shadowy doppelganger of your chosen anime character. So essentially the mid Mortal Kombat tier boss here, or Seth from Street Fighter 4 with more specific overpowered dick moves.

Moving on, the game has released a ton more trailers. Here’s the official seventh one:

And new ones for:

Medaka from Medaka Box

Taro

Jonathan Joestar

Nueno

Toriko

I’d add a synopsis for more of those characters but I was…uh…distracted. The game is out on March 19 in Japan. And there’ll be hell to pay if I don’t see it this side in a translated form. At least for Goku. Seriously, have you ever heard his original voice? Give me Sean Schemmel shouting out those power-up screams any day of the week.

J Star Victory VS features 39 active combatants from 32 various Jump franchises, and another 13 as support characters in the game that utilises the Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale system of throwing down planet-busting P-klaps.

My birthday is soon. So if you want to get me something, I’d love an import of this. Or the new, er, Hatsune Miko game if you can.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
