As an avid JRPG fan, I was very much aware of the fanfare surrounding Level-5’s Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom when it was first released for the PC and PS4 back in 2018.

Back when Sonic Colors originally released on the Wii in 2010, I deeply loved the game as a child. From its fun gameplay to its exciting environments, the game was full of personality and was what the series needed after flops such as Sonic 06 and Sonic Unleashed. But now, to keep fans occupied in the gap until the next Sonic game releases in 2022, SEGA has finally decided to port one of their older Sonic titles to modern platforms with Sonic Colors Ultimate being the first!

Ever since Jump Ultimate Stars released on the DS back in 2006 to much praise and success, fans were repeatedly asking for a new fighting game featuring all their favorite Shonen characters on a home console. With all the possibilities and potential this idea had, it would have surely been an amazing experience possibly on par with Super Smash Bros. That dream finally came true when J-Stars Victory VS released on PlayStation 3 back in 2015 but to much disappointment with the game feeling quite lacking among fans. But then at E3 2018, Shonen fans had a glimmer of hope when Jump Force was announced for PS4, PC and Xbox One as a celebration of Shonen Jump’s 50th Anniversary. In this reveal, the game looked great debuting with a trailer featuring some flashy visuals and a sneak peak of the all star roster. However, when it finally released, fans were extremely disappointed with the game due to its lackluster roster, boring story mode, lazy animations and a realistic art style that looked jarring on the cartoony designs of many of the anime/manga characters. Months after the game released, the game fell into obscurity with concurrent players dropping day by day until recently. Over a year later, Jump Force has been re-released for Nintendo Switch in a deluxe package that features all previous patches and all the season 1 DLC. As it has been several months after release, we’ll be taking a look to see if any improvements have been made to this new version of the game.
