Shonen Jump kicks off its 50th-anniversary celebration with the new mobile fighter, Jikkyou Janjan Stadium.  

The online brawler allows four players to battle as chibi version of Shonen Jump characters from the past and present. Players can combine light and special attacks to knock opponents off the stage Super Smash Bros. style. The roster will include fan favorites like; Naruto, One Piece, Dragon Ball, Death Note, My Hero Academia, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Rurouni Kenshin, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Black Clover, Hunter x Hunter, Wing-Man, Assassination Classroom, and more.

With Jump Force announced at E3, Jikkyou Janjan Stadium is the second fighting game using Shonen Jump characters. The mobile title will be available for iOS and Android in Japan sometime this year. Fans can check it out at the 2018 Jump Victory Carnival on July 22 in Osaka, Japan.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
