project versus j, shonen jump, manga

A mysterious title from Japan? You don’t say. And it’s manga-based? Next you’ll tell us that our website is actually…wait, this isn’t a private blog? Better report the story then.

Project Versus J was revealed by All Games Beta via a scan from Shonen Jump, and we know next to nothing about it. Based on some translations, though, we know it’s going to be the “ultimate [Shonen] Jump game.” The scan features Luffy (One Piece), Goku (Dragon Ball Z), and Toriko (Toriko), three characters from popular series, so a mash-up of sorts is expected.

For those not in the Japanese loop, Shonen Jump is a weekly manga magazine. It’s the one responsible for globally popular hits like Naruto (“Ew…”), Dragon Ball Z (“It was cool when I was in middle school!”), and Death Note (“That was some good sh*t.”). In the past, they’ve put out games like Jump Super Stars, which was basically Super Smash Bros. with a load of popular manga characters…and it was awesome! We can only hope that Project Versus J is baked from the same cookie dough.

We know little about Project Versus J (though the “versus” certainly implies another fighter), so it’s speculation time. Leave a comment and tell us what you think this game could be, and let us know what other characters should appear in Project Versus J…whatever it turns out to be.

Project Versus J isn’t the first Shonen Jump property to get us excited. Check out what we had to say about the official One Piece PSP!
