... is all i can describe this with. it is the greatest FIGHTER for the ds, keep in mind i said fighter. The characters and arenas are from the jump graphic novels, both japanese and american series and are each unique in most ways.

Jump Ultimate Stars is the sequel to one of the best selling games of 2005, Jump Super Stars. It is the second collaboration between Nintendo of Japan and Jump magazine, this time incorporating 300 characters from 40 Shonen Jump properties. The "Koma" battle system will still be used in this sequel with the original 4-by-5 grid and touch screen support. However a number of improvements have been made, including calling support characters into battle via L/R button, without using the touchpad. Characters can now cling on to ledges when falling adjacent to them and some of the stages include areas that can be reached by destroying walls, even the floor and ceiling. As another major improvement, Jump Ultimate Stars now supports Wi-Fi battles, which allows gamers all around the world to combat against each other.

Being a fan of some Japanese comics, I was glad to learn about this game back in 2007. It has some of my favorites like Kinnikuman, Saint Seiya, Fist of the North Star, and Dragonball.
For those who do not speak or read Japanese, the game in a way forces you to learn some basic Japanese and it has become helpful when being exposed to other Japanese media.
The game plays like a portable Smash Bros.
Sadly the Online does not work anymore, but it is great for single cart multiplayer.
This is a great gamr...even i couldnt speak japanese but i force myself to play this and awesome..its worth ever penny i spent
one of the best games ever. you can play almost all of the jump popular characters in the game. i really enjoyed. highly recommended to any jump fans
If you're an English speaker and don't know any Japanese, then the biggest problem you're going to have with this game will be obvious when you press Start. Without a Walk-through or knowing any Japanese, this will be the hardest part of the game. Luckily, this game is well documented and you can find a walk-through of the game very easily.
From a Gameplay perspective, it's just like Super Smash Bros, with the addition of a Health Meter. If you like any SSB game, you will probably like this game.
The game also offers upgradable characters. When you complete a set of objectives in Single Player, you get a type of currency you can spend on upgrading different Komas, this games equivalent of characters. And the best part of that, if you upgrade a character, you don't lose the previous version. So you can have several different Komas of the same character.
Multilayer is also a big part of this game. But if you live far away from Japan, you're connection might suffer for a bit, but will eventually work itself out.
If I had to rate this game, I'd give it an 8 out of 10. Why only 8? Because it doesn't have an option to have the menus and everything in English, and since the game is entirely in Japanese, it can be frustrating to figure everything out.
But I do recommend this game if you're looking for a Handheld SSB-like game.
This title is a very fun plattform fighrting game with original elements where you can choose some of the more popular shonen heroes. Just Enjoy!
