Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the hotter animes on the planet right now, so it was only a matter of time before Bandai Namco licensed the series and adapted it for consoles, like PS5 and PS4. Unfortunately, the result is pretty predictable: this is yet another arena-based brawler, with a combat system you’ve seen dozens of times before.
In this latest character trailer, developer Byking has shown off characters Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda. This follows a previous reveal featuring Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, Nobara Kugisaki, Satoru Gojo, and Ryomen Sukuna. We’d expect most of the popular characters from the series to make the cut, and there’ll likely be a post-release DLC plan, too.
The game certainly doesn’t look bad, and there seems to be plenty of variety between the fighting styles of the various selectable heroes. We just hope there are a few surprises in the final game, because despite the Jujutsu Kaisen skin, this gameplay format has become overly familiar in the past few years, hasn’t it?
