Bandai Namco have released a new patch for their anime fighter Jump Force. The patch brings some general improvements, shortens loading times even further and adds new a collection of costumes and accessories to the Umbra Base's stores.

Bandai Namco's anime crossover fighter Jump Force has received another patch today - 23 March 2019. If you're hoping that the devs added some much-requested features such as rematch button, you'll be disappointed to hear that the latest patch is a minor one and it adds new cosmetics and general improvements.

However, the good news is that Bandai Namco once again shortened the loading times that were one of the most annoying issues for many players ever since the game launched in February 2019.

According to the short patch notes, the transition to battle with an online and offline counter and mission counter has been reduced as well as loading times when returning to the lobby from the match. Also, the transition time from battle to the character selection screen has been reduced to further improve the loading times.

Speaking about the cosmetics, Bandai Namco added ten new costumes and accessories to the Umbra Base's stores. You can check some of the items in the picture below. There are also 23 new avatar items that can be purchased at the shop counter.

As for the general improvements, again, there are no specific details. The patch notes only mention that the devs changed the minimap back to its default display and that other stability and performance improvements have been implemented. Hopefully, these will be easy to notice after you update the game.

Bandai Namco also listed some of the issues that will be fixed and updated in the upcoming weeks. These include more improvements to loading times, battle adjustments, improvements to online and offline lobby functions and other community-requested changes.
