The first three characters that were unveiled and used to promote the game were Son Goku, Monkey D. Luffy, and Toriko.[1] Also in December, it was announced that fans could vote for some of the characters that they want to be included in the game.[2] Naruto Uzumaki joined the list of playable characters in March 2013.[3] The first commercial for the game was posted online on April 7, featuring gameplay footage of the four characters.[4] Ichigo Kurosaki and Himura Kenshin were announced to have joined in June 2013,[5] and a couple weeks later, Gintoki Sakata and Kankichi Ryotsu were added.[6] A promotional video was posted online on July 28 featuring all the characters, and which stated that more characters and info would be announced in Weekly Shōnen Jump and V Jump.[7] In August 2013, Gon Freecss and Yusuke Urameshi were unveiled to also be playable.[8] Weekly Shōnen Jump issue number 40 of 2013 revealed that rival characters from the represented series will also be included, showing Sasuke Uchiha (Naruto), Vegeta (Dragon Ball), and Zebra (Toriko). The issue also announced that certain characters' transformations will also be available, such as Dragon Ball's Super Saiyan, Yusuke's demon form, and Ichigo's Hollow form.[9] The first playable demo of the game will be at the 2013 Tokyo Game Show.[10]


J-Stars Victory Vs lets up to four players battle it out against one another in a gameplay and graphical style similar to those of Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle Royale. Fighters can move and fight in all directions of a 3D battle field. Players should learn the lay of the land and formulate a battle plan with a character suited to it.

A defeated character comes back after a set amount of time passes. To win the battle, all three sections of the WIN gauge at the top of the screen have to be filled; the gauge fills one section each time an opponent is defeated. Fighters can use regular attacks, power attacks, area-based attacks, and finishing moves. Regular attacks are the main part of the battle, and all combos begin with them. Power attacks leave the user open, but they have a big impact if they connect and their power can be increased by charging them up. Area-based attacks allow to hit opponents over a wide area. By using different techniques, the player can lead his team to victory; learning each character's different power, range, and effects is the first step towards being unbeatable.
