Jump Force (ジャンプフォース;
Jump Force is a 1-v-1 fighting game that lets you pick a team of three characters from a selection of various manga series featured in the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. Players control one character at a time while the others are used as support, with players able to switch between them during battle. Combat functions similarly to the previous Jump fighting game, J-Stars Victory Vs, with players moving around a 3D space and utilizing various combos and special moves to attack their opponents. The match ends when one team depletes the other's health bar.
When the real world collides with many of the Shōnen Jump universes, humanity is invaded by the "Venoms", an army of mind-controlled villains lead by Kane and Galena. In order to fight back, many heroes are recruited to join the "Jump Force" under the leadership of Director Glover and his A.I. (artificial intelligence) partner Navigator. But a suspicious figure is using both the Jump Force and the Venoms as an attempt to gain a mysterious artifact and merge all worlds into one.

After the player rescues an amnesiac girl named Angela, several members of the Jump Force suddenly become possessed by evil auras during missions, leading them to suspect a traitor is among them. While Sanji is initially blamed, the culprit is revealed to be Angela, who is a disguise for the evil Galena. Galena steals the collected umbras cubes and gives them to her master Kane, a man seeking to wipe out humanity in revenge for the deaths of his family. The player pursues and defeats Kane, but Glover reveals himself to be the true mastermind behind the merging of the worlds. In truth, he is Prometheus, a "keyman" who was charged with showing the real world the stories of "Jump". However, Prometheus grew tired of humanity's vices and attempts to merge the real and Jump worlds together in order to guide humanity in the right direction. Prometheus steals the player's cube for its good energy, planning to use it to balance the evil energy he collected from the villains to become a god. Kane gives his cube to the player and Goku empowers them further with energy from all of Jump Force, allowing them to destroy Prometheus. However, this does not revert the real world back to its original state. At Trunks' suggestion, the player character becomes the new Jump Force director and continues to protect humanity. Meanwhile, Light finds an umbras cube left behind by Prometheus and voices his intent to use it to "make the world a better place".
The game's launch roster features 42 playable characters (40 characters from 16 series and two original characters), while 9 additional characters are planned to be added via downloadable content (DLC) in the first Season Pass for a total of 51 characters. In addition, players must create their own unique playable character, customizing them with abilities, outfits, and accessories earned through gameplay. Jump Force provides players the ability to join three special teams: Alpha, Beta, and Gamma.
