Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has become one of Japan’s most influential manga magazine’s for half a century now. And as they’re celebrating their golden or 50th anniversary, they have teamed up with board game makers, Milton Bradley. This is all to create a special Shonen Jump version of their bestselling game, The Game of Life.
And because its a board game, there has to be some game avatars, right? Well, how would you like to play as a popular Shonen Jump protagonist? This is because the game features several familiar Shonen Jump protagonists as board game avatars. They include KochiKame’s Ryoutsu Kankichi, My Hero Academia’s Deku, Black Clover’s Asuta, and of course, Dragon Ball’s Goku.
The game pretty much plays like a normal Game of Life Board Game, but with a Shonen Jump twist. This also translates into the game’s event cards as well.
Takara Tomy will be releasing the game in Japan this July for 4,500 yen.
