According to some Jump Force dataminers, the game could be receiving a second season of DLC characters. As many as seven new fighters are being speculated at the moment, together with a brand new manga series, Assassination Classroom.

Jump Force has received its first batch of DLC characters a few days ago with Seto Kaiba, Biscuit and All Might joining the game's roster. The World Tournament stage from Dragon Ball Z has also been added, together with some in-game events which completes the first phase of its 2019 roadmap.

However, the changes that the introduction of the aforementioned things made to the game left room for some enthusiastic dataminers to dig out some interesting new animations which could imply that Jump Force may well receive a second season of DLC characters.

Namely, thanks to a dataminer named Leandro and YouTuber named Bilbzy, we may have learned the names of some upcoming Season 2 DLC characters. According to the various animations that were datamined from the game's updated files, the list of characters who might join the game sometime in the future is as follows:

- Krillin (Dragon Ball Z)
- Ochaco Uraraka (My Hero Academia)
- "Iron Man" Franky (One Piece)
- Coyote Starrk (Bleach)
- Orochimaru (Naruto)
- Koro-sensei (Assassination Classroom) 
- Saito Hajime (Rurouni Kenshin)

A particularly interesting character from the list is Koro-Sensei because he belongs to a manga that hasn't yet been featured in Jump Force, so seeing a new series added to the game would be very refreshing indeed.

Now, bear in mind that the list above or the second season of DLC characters itself are far from official. It is all mere speculation based on some unused animations that could possibly be used by some of the characters mentioned above, so take everything with a pinch of salt.

If you wish to learn more as to why a certain character found their place on the list, as well as if there is a chance that we'll be seeing even more names join the game's roster, you can check out Bilbzy's video where he covers everything in detail here.

As far as the official list of DLC characters goes, six more fighters will be added to the game over the coming months, those being Hitsugaya Toshiro, Majin Buu, Katsuki Bakugo, Trafalgar Law, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez and Uchiha Madara. These will be released in batches of three, with the next trio coming this August.
