Super Smash Bros Ultimate has a larger than its predecessor. Making it one of the robust selective in Smash history. There is over 90 stages in ultimate from the past series. Super Smash Bros Ultimate has a ton of replay value and content. Player’s can go local or online to dominate the competition. Single player mode is similar to past games. All you have to do is fight your way to the final boss. Afterwards fight a new character and unlock them. World of Light is a new adventure mode just like Subspace Emissary. Miis can join in the fight. Ultimate has a lot of mini-games and tournament style game mode. People debate whether Smash Bros is a fighting game or not. In my opinion, It’s a party game not a competitive fighting game.

Does video games and manga mix?



Ultimate has a insane mass of third-party characters. Nintendo has work with companies such as Square Enix, Konami, Capcom and Platinum Games. Sakurai wanted to put Bayonetta, Cloud Strife, Pac-man and Sonic the Hedgehog. There is more third-party characters coming up like Joker from Persona 5 dlc. Super Smash Bros Ultimate will probably be played in anime conventions. Amiibos are available and different controllers is compatible. Super Smash Ultimate is the fastest selling Nintendo Switch out right now. Speaking of video game crossovers, there is one more Jump Force. Jump Force is a fighting arena game features Weekly Shonen Jump characters.

Weekly Shonen Jump is a magazine manga company in Japan. People know titles such as One Piece, Dragon Ball, Naruto and My Hero Acadamia. The game marks 50th anniversary of Shonen Jump. Although the roster is not complete and questionable. I am happy for this game I might get the ultimate edition. That being said, there is no real news about potential game modes in Jump Force. There is a story mode that real world collides with Shonen Jump universe. Death Note’s Light and Ryuk appear in this mode and probably not playable. Character customization makes player fight alongside their favorite Jump characters.

How will it hold up?

My main complain about the roster is there is a lot of Dragon ball and One Piece characters. Fans had mixed feeling about this. Spike Chunsoft had done this in J Stars Victory Vs having 4 One Piece characters. I am still hoping Jump Force will be better than J Stars video game. There are new faces coming to Jump Force such as Black Clover Asta, City Hunter Ryo Saeba and many more. I am still crossing my fingers on Jojo, Hitman Reborn and D.Grayman characters. Other than that, your favorite characters from Shonen Jump have their signature moves from the manga. Goku has his special move Kamehameha wave. Monkey D. Luffy able to go Gear 4th and Naruto uses Kurama. Spike wants a 3 on 3 tag unlike J Stars.

Jump Force is inspired by Dragon Ball Xenoverse and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series. Hopefully went Jump Force comes to February 2019. We will get more news about the game. Who is the winner here between Super Smash Bros Ultimate Vs Jump Force? We will have to wait and see? Even fans complain about Unreal Engine of the character design. I willing to give it a chance will you? Smash Bros Ultimate is first place due to positive receptions its getting. Preorder Jump Force on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available now on Nintendo Switch. Both of these games will make fan happy or ungrateful.
