To celebrate the release of anime combat game Jump Force, a suitably kickass art display is being shown at Shinjuku Station, in Tokyo.
From February 18 to 24, Metro Marunouchi Line will be decorated with wall art depicting the respective fighting prowess of Goku, Luffy and Naruto.
These characters are known for their quick punches and superhuman strength, and this is reflected in the 15-foot wide station artwork.
The artwork depicts three punched in holes in the station wall, each smashed in by a mighty, skilled fist. Each of the three holes in personalised according to the unique fighting style of Goku, Luffy and Naruto.
As reported by Moshi Moshi Nippon, each punchy piece of art reflects the damage done by these three characters.
Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Red Hawk shows a red, lava-like centre, with a clenched fist emerging from the fiery middle.
Goku’s Kamehameha has cooler, bluer tones, with a dark, hollow core, while Naruto’s Rasengan is a brutalist concrete grey, with a closed centre.
Before the three pieces of artwork is a line of blue traffic cones in various states of disarray, suggesting some sort of ruckus has been going on.

This isn’t the only exciting Jump Force promotion to look out for in Tokyo.
A newspaper packed full of information about the Jump Hero’s Wall will also be given out in six locations across the city (Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shinagawa, Tamachi, Ikebukuro and Shinbashi).
The hotly anticipated Jump Force is a crossover game developed by Japanese video game development Spike Chunsoft Co. Ltd. (Mystery Dungeon) and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.
It has been released to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump anthology, and will feature beloved characters from a variety of manga series.
This includes famous characters from the likes of Naruto, Dragon Ball and One Piece.

According to reviewer Mike Harradence, from VideoGamer:
Jump Force is a love letter to fans: a 50th birthday pressie from Shonen Jump magazine, offering a massive 40-something roster that makes it perhaps the biggest crossover royale this side of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
