Giorno Giovanna Joins the "Gang Star"-Studded JUMP FORCE Roster This Spring

How bizarre!

The Jump Force roster is set to expand once more with the addition of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Giorno Giovanna this Spring. Read up on the character and how to get him below.

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced that a Golden Wind is set to howl across the JUMP FORCE battlefield when JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Giorno Giovanna, the progeny of DIO by way of Jonathan Joestar’s body, joins the game’s playable roster this spring. Opponents who come face-to-face with Giorno’s seemingly invincible Gold Experience Requiem Stand are forever reminded that their attacks are simply useless.

Giorno is the fifth and final member of JUMP FORCE Character Pass 2, which also features the currently available Shoto Todoroki, Meruem and Hiei, and the upcoming Yoruichi. Players who purchase Character Pass 2 for $17.99 will immediately obtain Todoroki, Meruem and Hiei, as well as gain early access to Yoruichi and Giorno upon release. Each character is also available separately for $3.99.

Yoruichi Shihoin and Giorno Giovanna revealed for Jump Force

Bleach and JoJo represent!

Bandai Namco recently went through a bit of a technical hiccup with Jump Force. It turns out the company accidentally pushed out work-in-progress characters to a small group of players long before they were meant to be revealed. Instead of trying to hide the info, they've just come clean about who's coming up.

We now know that Yoruichi Shihoin from Bleach and Giorno Giovanna from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure will be joining the roster at some point in the future. No other details on these characters were shared, so we'll have to wait until Bandai Namco is ready to release new info.

October 27th for other platforms

The JUMP FORCE experience is getting enriched on October 27 [early 2021 for Switch] with two new combatants, Hiei and Meruem!

“King of the Ants” from the HUNTER X HUNTER saga, Meruem is the powerful leader of the Chimera Ants. Surpassing humans in intelligence while possessing an overwhelming physical strength, his tail strikes were already frightening his enemies when he was just a newborn!

Hiei is one of the main characters of the manga and anime Yu yu Hakusho. Mastering an ardent demonic energy, he will set his enemies ablaze with his fearsome Dragon of the Darkness Flame attack!

Meruem and Hiei will be available in JUMP FORCE on PS4, Xbox One and STEAM starting October 27th and on Nintendo Switch in early 2021.

Meruem and Hiei are respectively the third and fourth characters of the Characters Pass 2. Each character of the Characters Pass 2 can also be purchased individually.
