Who is the spiky-haired, purple-eyed kid who just appeared as a challenger in Namco’s Jump Force? It’s Yugi Moto, the iconic character from the Yu-Gi-Oh series. What’s he capable of?
First revealed last year, Jump Force is a gigantic crossover Shonen Jump brawler, with the most famous characters to ever appear in the manga all in one place. Each of them have the specific abilities they’re known for: Luffy can stretch and perform Gum Gum attacks, Naruto has his Shadow Clone Jutsu, and Goku has his famous Saiyan power-up technique.
Compared to those guys, Yugi may not look like much of a physical fighter…and he isn’t. In normal form he’s about three feet tall and incredibly scrawny. He is, however, an expert Duelist — and fortunately for him, his card monster holograms can actually hurt his enemies here.
Yugi can use Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl, and Slifer the Executive Producer — er, Sky Dragon on any of his opponents. Or, if he feels like going it alone, he has Spell Cards and Trap Cards at his disposal. Plus the love of his friends!
Watch Yugi D-D-D-D-DUEL in this new Jump Force trailer, which also reveals the Golden Gate Bridge stage. Jump Force comes out February 19, 2019 on Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
