Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash offers fans an opportunity to experience the original narrative and enthralling action of Jujutsu Kaisen. In this setting, protagonist Yuji Itadori, along with a memorable cast, battles against the monstrous Curses plaguing present-day Japan. The game’s visuals match the unique aesthetic of the series, comprising over fifteen fan-favorite fighters and showcasing striking action and dynamic animations.

In Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash, players can form their own 2v2 teams, executing an array of powerful combined attacks and combinations. Different character matching allows variable synergies and power dynamics. As players win battles, their fighter’s power level increases, unveiling stronger attacks as they advance in the game.

Akutami initially unveiled the manga in Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine back in March 2018.

The Jujutsu Kaisen anime debuted in October 2020 with a total of 24 episodes. The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 anime movie released in Japan in December 2021, which is based on Gege Akutami‘s manga prequel story, Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.

The anime’s second season landed its premiere on July 6. Crunchyroll distributed the anime in tandem with its release in Japan. The second season ran for two continuous quarters for a half-year. The anime is poised to adapt the manga’s “Culling Game” (Shimetsu Kaiyū) arc in a forthcoming sequel.
