It hasn’t been long since Shueisha came into the gaming world. Instead of taking it slow, the company went on to announce one of the year’s biggest games, Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimensions.
With its trump card – its massive library of shonen manga and characters, the company came up with a concept that excited fans worldwide.
It follows a young boy, Damien, who has created an imaginary world where he fights monsters alongside his favorite Jump+ heroes. I know you’ve been waiting for the character reveal, so here it is.
Shueisha Games has revealed all the Shonen Jump+ heroes who will feature in the upcoming game Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump+ Dimension. The game will launch on July 28, 2022.
The character lineup is as follows:
|Kafka Hibino||Monster No. 8|
|Gabimaru||Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku|
|Ushio Kofune||Summer Time Rendering|
|Princess & Ex||‘Tis Time for “Torture,” Princess|
|Chloe Love||GHOST REAPER GIRL|
The player will play as Captain Velvet and can choose one of the Jump+ characters to assist them during the missions. They can use the character’s signature or combination of attacks to instill significant damage on the enemy forces.
For instance, during stealth missions, Loid Forger is the best way to go, but for fighting an army of your foes, someone like Chrome or Gabimaru would be a better option.
To cover more of the game’s premise and how the imaginary world of Captain Velvet came to be, we’ll need to know a little bit about Damien. He is a shy boy who struggles to catch up to his new surroundings when his parents move to Japan.
Even though he is in his shonen manga heaven, it still is difficult for the boy to fit in. As a coping mechanism, Damien begins to form an imaginary world and resorts to it when things get tricky. In his fictional world, he’s the main character, with all of his favorite heroes helping him.
The game might sound a bit childish considering how it’s based on a child’s imagination, but honestly, I’m looking forward to it now.
I mean, having our favorite Jump+ characters in a game? Now that’s a gamer otaku’s paradise.
