END PRESS RELEASE

I actually got my hands on Jump Force this weekend at PAX South 2019 and I have to say, it’s really damn fun. The demo was very short (as I’m sure it was made that way intentionally) but very cool! I can see it selling very well but as a novice to fighting games I am not sure how balanced it is and/or going to be. It remains to be seen what the competitive scene will look like but I’m sure Shiro will let us all know.
