Jump Festa 2011 logoShueisha’s 2011 Jump Festa is being held December 18-19, 2010 and video game companies are already RSVPing and even announcing some of the games they’ll be bringing to the manga, anime and video game convention that primarily celebrates series that appear in Weekly Shonen Jump. So anyone fortunate enough to make it to Chiba, Japan and the Makuhari Messe Convention Center will not only get to buy lots of goodies and see lots of stage shows and exclusive exhibits, they’ll also get to see some anticipated video games.

Here are some of the confirmed games that will be appearing at Jump Festa 2011, followed by which company booth attendees view and play them:

  • Bleach: Heat the Soul 7 (PSP) – Sony
  • Ishin no Arashi Shippuu Ryoumaden (DS) – Tecmo Koei
  • Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (PS3, Xbox 360) – Capcom
  • Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (PSP) – Capcom
  • Naruto Shippuden: Narutimate Storm 2 aka Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 (PS3, Xbox 360) – Namco Bandai
  • Naruto Shippuuden: Gekitou Ninja Taisen! Special (Wii) – Takara Tomy
  • One Piece: Gigant Battle (DS) – Namco Bandai
  • Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity (PSP) – Sega
  • Shining Hearts (PSP) – Sega

And here are some companies that will have booths at Jump Festa 2011, but haven’t confirmed what games they’ll be bring and show off:

  • Nintendo
  • Square Enix
  • Marvelous Entertainment
  • Banpresto
  • Broccoli
  • Bushiroad (Collectable Card Game publishers)

So even though there aren’t a lot of game details so far, it still looks like there’ll be a great lineup of games for everyone at Jump Festa 2011 to see. I’m looking forward to hopefully hearing more about Shining Hearts, the latest entry in the Shining RPG series!
