Four new villains announced for J-Stars Victory Vs.


With another two 'kind of' announced.

The roster for J-Stars Victory Vs. just can't stop growing, with the next issue of Weekly Shueisha Jump revealing that another four villains will be joining the fight. We have Madara Uchiha from Naruto, Akainu from One Piece, Makoto Shishio from Rurouni Kenshin and the lovable Pokémon from Dragon Ball Z, Frieza. 

Actually, that's not quite all of them. There was also a bonus announcement showing two silhouettes of unannounced characters, both of which are due to be announced on Tuesday. Just to save you the trouble, and because the silhouettes are pretty easy to figure out, Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho and Aizen from Bleach will also be swinging by for a fight or two. 

Not bad at all! In fact, I'm rather glad that they picked Frieza over Cell or Majin Buu, mainly because he seemed like the best villain of the lot. That guy was at the very least the biggest douche of the three, so perhaps that's what secured his position. Akainu seems like an odd pick, but then who could you choose over him? Blackbeard? Doflamingo?

I've actually already pre-ordered the anisong version of this game, so I certainly don't mind if that roster continues to increase. Looking at what we have so far, I think the biggest suspects that we're still missing are Killua Zoldyck (Hunter x Hunter), Dio Brando (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) and Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star), but I can't help bit think that there are some crazy picks still left to be revealed ahead of the March 19 release date. Who do you want to show up?
