Longtime readers of Shōnen Jump are in for a neat Jump Force reveal. At Paris Games Show, Fist of the North Star‘s Kenshiro and City Hunter‘s Ryo Saeba were confirmed as playable characters.

Kenshiro’s moveset is just as you’d expect. He fights using his titular Hokuto Shinken martial arts style, which focuses on brutal and rapid beatdowns. With Kenshiro on your team, your opponents will be already dead before they even realize it.

Ryo Saeba makes use of his signature Colt Magnum. As a highly skilled private detective, he’s got a trusty shot that rarely misses, plus a small arsenal of other weapons like bazookas. You’ll also be able to get wild and tough on his foes using his brawling skills.

The trailer also introduces a new map themed after Paris. Like the other maps you’ve seen so far, some Shōnen Jump fantasy world elements are blended into real world ones. Can you spot the references in the Paris map?

Bandai Namco additionally confirmed a release date for the game. It’ll come out on February 15, 2019 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
