BLEACH's Yoruichi Shihōin Is Latest DLC Fighter to Join JUMP FORCE, Bandai Namco Reveals

Bandai Namco has shared some exciting Jump Force news, as the Japanese publisher has officially confirmed that fans will be able to duke it out as Yoruichi Shihōin (hailing from the unique Bleach universe) really soon.

According to Bandai Namco, the beloved female heroin will join the fun as a DLC character early next year.

Interestingly enough, Yoruichi Shihōin is the 7th (!) character from the Bleach world to make their debut in Jump Force, as Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, Renji Abarai, Sōsuke Aizen, Tōshirō Hitsugaya, and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez are all currently available in-game (although Hitsugaya and Jaegerjaquez are premium heroes).

To kick some ass as Yoruichi, you'll need to purchase the title's second season pass (priced at $17.99). It also includes YuYu Hakusho's Hiei, My Hero Academia's Shoto Todoroki, Hunter x Hunter's Meruem, an a yet-to-be-revealed character (who will most definitely be Giorno Giovanna from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series).

To cerebrate the big reveal, Bandai has released all-new Yoruichi Shihōin–focused screenshots. Take a look:
