Luffy and Goku take to the streets to promote J-Stars Victory Vs.


Needs more Yusuke

You have to hand it to Japan. When they want to promote something, they're certainly willing to push the boat out to do so. This might not be on the same scale as the giant Gundam, but life-size statues of Luffy and Goku partaking in some Shibuya-based street fighting is certainly up there. 

With the Shonen Jump all-star game J-Stars Victory Vs. now officially released, you can bet Bandai Namco are doing their best to remind you just how crazy a fight between Luffy and Goku would actually be. Personally I want to see statues of Gon socking Frieza in the face, just to see that Mewtwo cosplayer being beaten up by a kid. 

But let's be honest. Having statues of Luffy and Goku performing the Elephant Gun and the Kamehameha is enough to market any product. Weekly Shonen Jump toilet paper? Sold.
