Are Astral Chain preorders open in Japan ? I know they are in the west. Really curious to see how it performs, Bayonetta 3 always gets lots of points in the Famitsu most wanted list so I think there's definitely demand for an action game on Switch

Edit: Sorry I was wrong.

It is available on COMG
Collecters Edition also

I see, let's wait for the Famitsu rankings then, if Ushiro can be among the most anticipated games with nothing but a PSP trailer, then Astral Chain can get there aswell

Jump fighting games have existed before this and will exist after this. If this does well it will only prove to them that they do not need to try. 

Jump fighting games with crossover from multiple Jump series? They did way better with the Naruto ones, at least that I've played, but I've never seen one with Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, DBZ, and more all crossing over like this. I don't want it to be a blockbuster, just do well enough to demonstrate that there is some demand for a game like this, to motivate them to try harder next time.

I know one is 2D but both at least looked better than this and played better than this, this just looks like hot garbage.

I haven't played Jump Force but J-Stars really wasn't anything special. Also made by Spike Chunsoft. Similar to One Piece: Burning Blood, a fairly average fighting game.

Honestly, the team that makes these titles probably just needs to be taken off them. There's plenty of other Japanese devs out there who I'm sure could take a stab at it.

Holy batman anthem going for the kill. Second on the chart now. The Japanese obviously see potential in this game. Is it published by EA?

Welp. Yep, you're right, I'm wrong. Fuck Jump Force. They can do better, they have done better, they already know there's demand for this, there's no excuse. That said, Kresnik is probably right, someone has to be able to do better. A properly done anime crossover fighting game has too much potential to go to waste and deserves better than this.

It is published by EA yes. I don't get what the Japanese see in it. It looks like a duller version of Destiny that will inevitably be fucked up in ways only EA can manage. Maybe the Japanese just don't know what EA is capable of yet?

I know it could be better (J-Stars), but the latest game just seems like a joke even compared to J-Stars. It is like someone went back to 2008 and thought Japanese style needs to be westernized but without understanding anything about either sections of the world.
