Bandai Namco have managed to reignite the Jump Force flame in many a fan's heart with some interesting teaser text in their new trailer. The message reportedly implies that the publisher is planning to introduce DLC season two of characters to the game's roster.

Jump Force will be getting two additional fighters over the next couple of days in the form of DLC - Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez from Bleach and Trafalgar Law from One Piece. These two characters will be available to Character Pass owners from 13 December and from 17 December to all players who wish to expand their arsenal of fighters.

Bandai Namco published a new trailer today showing off said fighters in action. While all the fighting and flashy moves shown are indeed impressive in more ways than one, the trailer contained another, arguably far more important, piece of information for fans of this massive anime brawler. Namely, at the end of the trailer, a message is displayed saying that "the battle continues in 2020". This almost certainly implies that the publisher is planning a second season of DLC characters for the game.

As you would imagine, the sole possibility of more DLC fighters has caused numerous fans of the game over on reddit to go berserk with excitement and their own wish-lists as to which characters they would like to see added to the game's roster.

Some of the fighters that fans are already super loud about are Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho, Tsuna from Reborn!, Itachi from Naruto Shippuden, Marik Ishtar from Yu-Gi-Oh! and many others. Of course, given that the Weekly Shonen Jump that Jump Force's roster is based around is absolutely teeming with amazing heroes and villains, it's no wonder that fans would want to see their favourite anime characters join the game's lineup.

However, while the news of more characters being added to Jump Force certainly sounds exciting indeed, bear in mind that Bandai Namco have not explicitly stated that that's what they were implying with their new trailer.

Even though everything shown suggests that DLC season two is all but confirmed, we still recommend you take it all with a tiny grain of salt for the time being, just to save yourself from any sort of disappointment in case the message turns out to mean something completely different.
