Two more iconic characters representing the Dragon Ball series will be joining the roster of Jump Force. Piccolo, the mean, green Namekian, and Cell, Dr. Gero’s perfect creation, are both officially confirmed to be playable characters.
Both of these characters were revealed in a recent batch of scans from V Jump (Japanese manga magazine). Piccolo and Cell could be plainly seen standing amongst the previously announced cast members of Jump Force’s roster. And low and behold, with little to no surprise, both Piccolo and Cell will indeed be playable within Jump Force.
The inclusion of these two brings our headcount of Dragon Ball representatives up to a respectable five; this includes Goku, Vegeta, Frieza, Piccolo, and Cell. The only other series to boast this number of playable characters would be Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece. I hope we see further additions of characters to other Shounen Jump series as well, at least if they have the pool of characters to fish from that is.
Jump Force launches on February 15, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
