A game featuring iconic anime characters like Goku, Luffy, and Naruto sounds like a sure-fire hit. This was probably the same thought going through the execs over at Bandai Namco when the game was first released in 2018. However, 3 years on and the game is dead.
But, thanks to Steam's Fall sale, fans of the game can get it at a vastly reduced price before saying goodbye to the title. If you go over to the game's Steam page, you'll see that the base game is going for just $6 while is a 90% reduction on its original price. That's not all, you can also cop the Deluxe and Ultimate editions of the game for $10 and $15 respectively which is also about 90% off the initial selling price. If you are a collector who wants to own what will in a couple of years be rare antiquity, then you might consider buying this game.
Full disclosure, this game is set to come to an end very soon which means that players will be unable to purchase items from the shop along with play in ranked matches and so on. About three weeks ago, Bandai Namco released a statement where they assured users that the single-player content will be available, but just about everything else will be removed.
"Everyone at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment would like to offer our sincere thanks to all Jump Force players and fans for their years of support. Today, we are announcing the end of Jump Force’s availability through digital purchase in the Americas. Jump Force will cease to be available for base game, DLCs and virtual currency purchase on 2/7/2022 at 5:00pm PST for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Additionally, some of the Jump Force online service servers will be sunsetting on 8/24/2022; however, all single-player functions will continue to be playable locally on your home console or PC, as well as PVP battle, except the Ranked Match mode."
The game sought to give players the ability to easily customize their characters and play with some of the most well-known names in anime. Unfortunately, it just hasn't been able to capture the imagination of the fighting game community and this has led to its demise.
