Words can’t explain how legitimately excited I am for J-Star Victory VS. It’s all your favourite mentally retarded anime characters that happen to have legendary appetites, all in one game and ready to trade blows. So how does it play then? Pretty much like this.
Here’s the basics of battle for J-Star Victory VS. Which I have no idea to translate, because several years of anime has not resulted in me magically learning how to speak Japanese. On the plus side, my skills in Trauma Centre have totally helped me fake my way into a residency at my local provincial hospital so hold still while I heal you with pentagrams.
Here’s the first video showing off the general combat:
A standalone video for Super Saiyan fighting savant Son Goku HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Another one for the kind-hearted and deadly Himura Kenshin:
And last but certainly not least, the beyond ridiculous and goofy Pirate King candidate Monkey D Luffy:
The game has also recently added even more fighters to its roster, in the form of Kenshiro and Raoh from Fist of the North Star. If you’re not a fan of the Hokuto No Ken comics, then you’re already dead…to me.
For those of you who happen to have no idea what I’m talking about, imagine if the Mad Max films starred a hero who could hit the right pressure point on your body and make your face explode, and that’s Fist of the North Star in a bloody nutshell.
The manga ran for several years, and it even managed to produce a live action American film adaptation. That I recently tricked Gavin into watching. Oh man, does he hate me more than ever now.
