2018 crossover manga fighting game Jump Force will soon be permanently pulled from all digital stores.
The game, which brings together 57 characters from 16 different series including Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto and Bleach, will no longer be available by the end of the day.
- PST – Monday Feb 7 at 5pm
- EST – Monday Feb 7 at 8pm
- GMT – Tuesday Feb 8 at 1am
- Japan – Tuesday Feb 8 at 10am
After it’s pulled from sale, the game’s online servers will continue to remain active until August 24/25, 2022, at which point they will be switched off.
Once the online service ends, players will still be able to play the game’s offline content, connect to friends for online matches (not ranked ones), and play previously purchased DLC.
However, they will no longer have access to online events, clan functions, the Reward Counter, the in-game store, multiplayer lobbies and online ranked matches.
Bandai Namco is currently selling Jump Force at a large discount on Switch and Xbox:
- Jump Force Deluxe Edition for £8.99 / €9,99 on Switch instead of £44.99 / €49,99 (not in North America)
- Jump Force for £5.49 / $5.99 on Xbox instead of £54.99 / $59.99
- Jump Force Ultimate Edition for £13.49 / $14.99 on Xbox instead of £89.99 / $99.99
The game is still available physically, and physical versions will still be playable after the game is pulled from digital stores.
However, the online servers will of course still shut down in August for all players, regardless of whether they’re playing the digital or physical version.
