Shonen Jump J-Stars Victory VS+ answers all the big questions


Everyone comes out to party

The biggest question of them all being "When the hell is Bandai Namco releasing Jump Stars Victory VS?" in English. The answer to that is "Next summer, on the PS3, PS4, PS Vita, and all under the somehow even more nonsensical title of J-Stars Victory VS+." Now, on to more pertinent questions, like "Who can beat Goku?" 

In case you didn't know, J-Stars happens to be the Super Robot Wars of Shonen Jump franchises. Characters from across the multiverse associated with Japan's biggest manga magazine beat on each other in the endless quest to determine who is the mightiest...or something. I'm not sure what the actual story is, but I do know you can take Kuroko from Kuroko's Basketball and try to get him to take out Dragon Ball Z's Goku, and probably even win. That's something worth seeing regardless.
