New J-Stars Victory Vs. Trailer Features Gon Freecs

Namco Bandai’s upcoming cross-franchise 3D fighter, J-Stars Victory Vs., has just released a brand new trailer. This time around, it focuses on Hunter x Hunter’s primary protagonist, the son of the famous hunter Ging Freecs, Gon.

Gon is a highly skilled, altruistic, and all-around friendly young boy who is constantly searching for adventure. In search of his legendary father, Gon meets potential allies along the way and trains enough to be considered a formidable hunter even by people who have been around way longer than he is. His most prominent weakness is the fact that he’s not very good at math.

Fan Artist Creates “Hunter x Hunter” Look-alikes Based on “Dragon Ball Z”

Even though Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball anime series has been off the air since 1997 (that’s also including Dragon Ball GT), it continues to influence modern day manga artists, including fans alike — and we have proof. Earlier today, fan artist by the name of “Takumi” uploaded a “fusion image” of Dragon Ball and Hunter x Hunter.

We have already posted news about J-Stars Victory VS., which is meant to celebrate Shonen Jump’s 45th Anniversary by bringing several manga properties (including Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Rurouni Kenshin, Toriko, Gintama, and Kochikame) into a single 3D fighting game for the PS3, but it seems like we’re barely scratching the surface as Namco Bandai has just released a new preview revealing a couple of new franchises added to the roster: Hunter x Hunter and Yu Yu Hakusho.

New Screenshots for J-Stars Victory VS.

We’re actually still pumped-up from the recent announcement that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst will also get a PC release this fall (OMG I now pronounce me and Namco Bandai husband and waifu!) so a new batch of screenshots for another Namco Bandai-produced shonen fighting game, J-Stars Victory VS., is likely to get us so pumped up that we’d glow and evolve into a more powerful form.

For the uninitiated, J-Stars Victory VS. is a 3D fighting game meant to celebrate Shonen Jump’s 45th anniversary. The game features characters taken from some of the magazine’s most popular titles to date, including Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, Dragon Ball, Rurouni Kenshin, Toriko, Gintama, Kochikame, Yuu Yuu Hakusho, Hunter x Hunter, and probably more. Think of it as Super Smash Bros. with manga characters and a deeper fighting engine. Naturally, all manner of consistency about power levels is thrown out of the window in favor of providing a more enjoyable and balanced fight, so expect to see weird match-ups like Rurouni Kenshin’s Kenshin Himura squaring off against Son-goddamn-Goku.

Hunter x Hunter Anime Movie Details Revealed

If the recent Phantom Troupe story arc in the new series adaptation of Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter manga has kept you on the edge of your seat, then the recently revealed details about the upcoming Hunter x Hunter anime movie should make you want to scalp some tickets in advance, as it promises to bring the same kind of Phantom Troupe-centric story, but with big screen quality and with Yoshihiro Togashi’s personal involvement (Yoshihiro Togashi is famous for his other manga, Yuu Yuu Hakusho, and for being married to equally famous mangaka Naoko Takeuchi, who is famous for her work in Sailor Moon).
