Jump Force has a unique story because the Real World ends up merging with the fake Jump World and everything is messed up. All of the great anime heroes will have to find a way to make things go back to normal again. You can read about the story below as posted in the press release.
“The sudden merger between the Real World and the Jump World, has resulted in chaos enveloping the Earth, with the invading villains leaving a trail of death, destruction and panic in their wake. To tackle this new threat, a new team of heroes, the Jump Force, is formed by Director Glover featuring the strongest fighters from across the manga universe. Players will be able to create their own hero, customising their look and fighting moves with elements from across all your favourite franchises, before joining up with the Jump Force to stop the villains in their tracks. The trailer also provides a first glimpse at the Onyx Book, a powerful device suspected to be responsible for the mysterious merging of the two worlds.”
