Jump Force to Add Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho

In a recent announcement, Bandai Namco has revealed that a beloved character from Yu Yu Hakusho will be included in Jump Force’s roster. For those who don’t know, Yu Yu Hakusho is a manga and anime series that started in 1990, but despite that fact, it still has a pretty big following even today.

Now, Hiei of the Evil Eye will be joining the ranks of Naruto, Son Goku, Yugi Moto, and more in fighting game Jump Force. That being said, Hiei – whose name means flying shadow – isn’t the first character in Yu Yu Hakusho who made an appearance in Jump Force.

For instance, Yusuke Urameshi and Younger Taguro have been a big presence in the game. Nevertheless, Hiei is a very welcome addition to the roster, especially since a lot of fans have been asking for more characters from Yu Yu Hakusho.

The announcement was made via the official Bandai Namco US Twitter page, and they even included some pretty badass screenshots showing Hiei in action. He will be available as a DLC character this Fall, while Nintendo Switch users will have to wait until 2021.

Based on the screenshots, it appears that Hiei will have remarkable power, along with super speed and elemental resistance. Seeing his relentless fighting style in-game will definitely be interesting.
