Bandai Namco will delist Jump Force from Switch eShop in February 2022

Bandai Namco has confirmed today that it plans to delist Jump Force from all digital storefronts including the Nintendo Switch eShop from 7th February at 5pm PT. The company will also be shutting down online services for the anime fighter from Wednesday, 24th August. However, all single player content will remain available, as it should. Jump Force: Deluxe Edition launched on Switch last August.

“Everyone at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment would like to offer our sincere thanks to all Jump Force players and fans for their years of support. Today, we are announcing the end of Jump Force’s availability through digital purchase in the Americas. Jump Force will cease to be available for base game, DLCs and virtual currency purchase on 2/7/2022 at 5:00pm PST for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.”

“Additionally, some of the Jump Force online service servers will be sunsetting on 8/24/2022; however, all single player functions will continue to be playable locally on your home console or PC, as well as PVP battle, except the Ranked Match mode.”

  1. This is why Sakurai was always against adding Non video game characters into Smash. Other media make extremely short contact deals with their IPs.

  2. So why the actual fuck are they taking this crossover game away from Switch owners!?

    I would’ve actually bought this!

    1. It’s not being removed for Switch owners specificallyz it’s being removed across the board. Manga IP holders are notorious for having strict short term licensing agreements, so if a game isn’t selling anymore it immediately gets dropped.
