When the system requirements for Bandai Namco’s 3D anime fighter JUMP FORCE were first revealed, it was met with a lot of skepticism and outrage, since the required PC for minimum acceptable performance was perceived to be a little bit on the high side: the minimum graphics card needed was a GTX 1060.
The GTX 1060 is not even remotely close to being high end, but it’s also a tad too high for a game with visuals that most people see as rudimentary. And also because a substantial amount of PC gamers, as the Steam hardware survey reveals, are still using budget gaming cards that won’t even get near the GTX 1060 in performance (GTX 1050 TI, GTX 1050, GTX 750 TI, etc.) To most people, the high system requirements and the crude visuals could only mean that A.) it’s a lazy port job or B.) the system requirements are a placeholder.
Thankfully, it looks like the answer is B. The Steam store page for JUMP FORCE has been updated recently, and it looks like the game isn’t as demanding as the placeholder requirements implied. The GTX 1060 has been bumped up to Recommended Requirements, and the minimum is now a GTX 660 TI and equivalent (which is only slightly stronger than a 750 TI).
