Yugi has entered the fray! The protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh! has joined Jump Force, an upcoming tag-team fighting game featuring characters from Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment and the official Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! news website YU-GI-OH.jp made the big announcement today, revealing the in-game screenshot of Yami Yugi seen above.

YU-GI-OH.jp states that Yugi Muto (and not Yami Yugi) is the character who appears in the game and is voiced by Shunsuke Kazama.

Playable characters in Jump Force revealed thus far include Bleach’s Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen; Dragon Ball’s Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza; Hunter x Hunter’s Gon and Killua; Naruto’s Naruto and Sasuke; and One Piece’s Luffy, Zolo, Sanji, Sabo, and Blackbeard. There’s no word yet whether Yugi will be a playable character, or will only appear as part of the story like Death Note’s Light Yagami and Ryuk.

Jump Force was developed to celebrate Weekly Shonen Jump’s 50th anniversary and will debut in 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
