Akira Toriyama has created four unique characters for Bandai Namco's upcoming anime title, Jump Force. Along with Kane, one of the game's main antagonists, Galena will join the game's ever expanding roster as a fully playable character.

Other than fighters from the Weekly Shōnen Jump, Jump Force will feature four original characters designed by the creator of the popular Dragon Ball series, Akira Toriyama. These characters will play a vital part in the game's story, with Glover and Navigator being the good guys, and Galena and Kane taking on the role of villains.

Back in October 2018, on their official Twitter , Bandai Namco confirmed that one of the original characters, Kane, will be a fully playable character. This means that players will be able to use this unique evil fighter in various different modes in the game, and not just against them in the game's story. Joining her co-villain, we now have news that Galena will be a playable character in the full game as well.

The information comes from a very credible source when it comes to anime games, PS360HD2 , who is well known and respected in the anime gaming community. He posted a couple of in-game screenshots on his Twitter this morning, featuring Galena performing her ultimate move by summoning a wall of ice that entraps her foes and freezes them solid.

Since Bandai Namco haven't confirmed this information yet, we suggest you take it with a grain of salt for the time being, but given PS360HD2's reputation, we're certain that the news is very much correct.

Four new Naruto characters  have recently been announced as new additions to the game, and Jotaro Kujo from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai have been leaked as the newest manga characters to join the roster. However, none of these fighters, including Kane and Galena, are available for play in the open beta that's currently being rescheduled for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Those eager to play with the unique duo, as well as with some legendary heroes and villains from anime and manga series that we all know and love, will have to wait for the full game to drop. The release date is set to February 15, but if you decide to pre-order the game, you will be able to join the fight three days early.

Apart from early access, pre-ordering the game will also get you three costumes for your own unique fighter, a new lobby vehicle that will allow you to move around in the game's hub world in Frieza's stylish hover pod, and two Shōnen Jump T-shirts for your custom made character.
