During Anime Expo 2023, Bandai Namco announced a video game of the popular manga and anime series Jujutsu Kaisen titled Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash. The four main characters are high school students Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushigoro, Nobara Kugisaki, and their teacher Satoru Gojo.
You play as Itadori, who swallowed Sukuna’s finger and gained immense power. Gameplay comprises a 2 versus 2 fighter system similar to other Bandai Namco anime fighting games. Fans can anticipate a retelling of the original storyline. As players win battles, their attacks will grow stronger, and different team-ups will have unique power dynamics and synergies.
We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on this incoming release.
Misaki Kai, producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment, stated the following regarding this announcement:
“With its unique and compelling storyline and focus on intense action, JUJUTSU KAISEN is the perfect anime to make the leap to video games. JUJUTSU KAISEN CURSED CLASH stays true to its source material, taking players into this amazing anime universe to live the story and experience the action for themselves.”
