It has been confirmed that Weekly Shonen Jump will once again be teaming up with Universal Studios Japan in Osaka to bring us Universal Jump Summer! The event will run from 3 months from 30 June to 1 October 2017. The event will feature attractions based on popular Shonen Jump works such as One Piece, Dragon Ball, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and Gintama.
The first Universal Jump Summer event took place last year in 2016. For 2017, the event period has been extended from 66 days to 94 days. Both children and adults can have fun entering the world of Shonen Jump.
Details of the event have yet to be announced, but the key visual features some of the most well-known faces from the beloved manga magazine: Dragon Ball’s Son Goku, Gintama’s Gintoki Sakata, One Piece’s Monkey D Luffy, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s Jotaro Kujo. This year will be the first time that JoJo and Gintama will be taking part. Both these series have live-action movies coming out later this year!
Last year’s event was very exciting, with attractions such as Dragon Ball’s 4D movie Dragon Ball Z The Real 4D and Death Note’s escape game Death Note The Escape. Expectations are rising for this year’s USJ and Jump collaboration. If you are planning on visiting Japan sometime this summer, then make sure you head to Osaka!
