The Other Ant-Man
Bandai Namco continues to add a variety of anime stars to its Jump Force crossover battle title. The publisher has posted screenshots (as seen on Gematsu) with another addition to the roster, Hunter x Hunter's Meruem, which will join the roster this fall.
Meruem, son of the Chimera Ant Queen, was the main villain of the Hunter x Hunter "Chimera Ant" story arc. Initially callous beyond comprehension, Meruem dominated his anthill by destroying, even devouring, anyone who challenged his authority, strength, or ego. Meruem eventually goes through a moment of clarity when he realizes the minds of humans, demonstrated by the will and integrity of a Gungi player named Komugi.
There's currently no video of Meruem in action in Jump Force, but no doubt we'll get a trailer closer to his launch date. It was recently announced that Jump Force was set to receive a Deluxe Edition on August 28, bringing the base game and its first set of seven DLC characters to Nintendo Switch.
Jump Force is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One and will launch on Switch on August 28.
