New Jump Force screenshots of the recently added Naruto characters have surfaced, showing Gaara, Kaguya and Kakashi. Apart from these fighters, we also get to see the iconic village of Konoha, which will be one of the arenas in the game.
Bandai Namco are continuing to stir up hype for their upcoming anime title, Jump Force. Over the last few days, they have announced some new Naruto characters, with the likes of Boruto, Gaara, Kaguya and Kakashi.
Jotaro, Dai and the original Jump Force character Galena have also joined the roster, though these characters haven't been officially confirmed by the publisher yet, but the news of their additions come from credible sources so there's not much reason for doubt.
On their official Twitter and Facebook, Bandai Namco have posted some brand new screenshots featuring the mighty Naruto goddess, Kaguya. The game really does the Mother of Chakra justice, as she looks divinely powerful, especially when she's performing her ultimate move. Graphics is certainly one department that Jump Force excels at, even in its current beta stage.
Apart from Bandai Namco's screenshots of Kaguya, a Twitter user named Jamiboy uploaded a bunch of screenshots featuring different Naruto fighters and stages on his profile. One of the tweets features Kakashi Hatake - Naruto's sensei and leader of Team 7. Wielding the power of Sharingan, Kakashi's Susanoo looks as epic as it does in the actual anime.
The next tweet shows Gaara, the fifth Kazekage of the village of the Sand a.k.a Sunagakure. Once Naruto's fierce enemy and now one of his closest friends and allies, this leader of the Suna village looks every bit as powerful as he does in both the anime and manga. The screenshots also reveal that Gaara still has his Shukaku - the one-tailed beast that lives inside of him - which implies that he will be able to call upon its powers in his battles.
The final batch of screenshots posted by the same Twitter user show us the Konoha village, which is the homeplace of Naruto and most of his closest friends, such as Kakashi, Sasuke and Sakura. As an arena, Konoha is surely a place many Naruto fans will appreciate, especially with the iconic faces of the five Hokage beautifully shown on the mountain background.

All of these screenshots can also be found on the game's official subreddit where many anime fans have welcomed the new glimpses of Jump Force's presentation of Naruto characters with open arms.
