Jotaro Kujo and Dai have been leaked as new additions to the roster of Jump Force. Screenshots of the two characters have allegedly appeared on Bandai Namco's official Facebook and Instagram profiles in the form of sponsored advertisements.
After adding a bunch of fighters from Naruto, Bandai Namco's next additions to Jump Force's roster will reportedly be Jotaro Kujo from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai. Although this information hasn't been officially confirmed by the publisher, there are some leaks going around the Internet that look very convincing to say the least.
Namely, pictures featuring Jotaro and Dai have appeared on Bandai Namco's official Facebook and Instagram profiles, in the form of sponsored advertisements. The ads were quickly removed but some quick-thinking fans were swift enough to grab a screenshot and post it online for others to see.
The screenshots of the ads were shared by Twitter users YonkouProd and NiniiSpangle, both of whom have been known as credible sources for leaks and exclusive Jump Force information in the game's community.
The leaks have caused the game's official subreddit to go berserk, with fans being adamant that the screenshots are legitimate and that the new characters are going to be confirmed very soon. Some players are even saying that they now have reason to pre-order the game - that is how big of an impact the addition of Jotaro and Dai is going to have on Jump Force, should the leaks indeed prove to be true.
We personally believe that these two characters will be announced eventually, regardless of the leaks being true or not. After all, Jotaro and Dai are both part of the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine, so there's no reason for them not to be included in the game, as licensing - the usual culprit - presents no problem here.
Jump Force will be released on February 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, but we expect Bandai Namco to confirm or dismiss these leaks much sooner than that. To get a taste of how the game plays, you can join in on the open beta if you're gaming on a console, but note that the last two remaining sessions are currently being rescheduled.

We expect to have more info on the new schedule next week, as Bandai Namco stated yesterday that they will need about 48 hours to finish the rescheduling and preparation of the open beta servers for the new sessions.
