Seto Kaiba's appearance as an upcoming Jump Force DLC character has been known for a while but Bandai Namco have finally revealed him officially. The trailer show the character in action and provided a brief description of what he does.

Bandai Namco's mash-up fighter game will get another non-fighter in May 2019 - Seto Kaiba. His arrival will mark the end of Yugi's lonesome appearance as the latter was the only character from their show on Jump Force's roster so far. Seto will have his own iconic cards, just like Yugi did.

While Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl are what defined Yugi, you probably already guessed that Seto will have Blue Eyes White Dragon. The trailer above also shows Seto employing Obelisk the Tormentor, the colossal creature that is sure to give a thrashing to just about any opponent who faces the "#1 ranked duelist in the country".

Oddly enough, the recently revealed trailer didn't offer much more info than the initial leaks and the subsequent roadmap announcement from Bandai Namco, which happened over two weeks earlier. It still remains to be seen whether Seto will have any more tricks up his sleeve or if he will rely on just the two aforementioned monsters.

While Seto will require a Character Pass or a microtransaction, he will arrive along with a free update. He will be accompanied by two other DLC characters, none of which were revealed so far. Considering there is more than a month to go until the update launches, it is safe to say Bandai Namco will have plenty of time to properly present both characters.

If you are not a patient person, you could also take a look at the leaked roster of the upcoming DLC characters which seems to be right so far, as it correctly reported Seto as an upcoming character. Some fans have already given up on the game after seeing their favourite characters wouldn't make an appearance though.
