The game remains faithful to the original work, with visuals inspired by the series’ distinct aesthetics, a selection of more than fifteen favorite fighters to choose from, and intense action and explosive animations.
In Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash, players will be able to select their own 2v2 teams, each capable of executing a wide array of powerful tag-team attacks and combos.
Different character combinations will have unique synergies and power dynamics. By completing battles, players increase their fighter’s power level, unlocking stronger attacks as they progress.

The first cour has already ended, and the second cour began on August 31 and covers the Shibuya Incident Arc.

This is the innocent spring that the two strongest lost forever. Itadori Yuji took Ryomen Sukuna into his own body in June 2018. Okkotsu Yuta freed Orimoto Rika from her curse in December 2017.
And now it’s spring 2006. Gojo Satoru and Geto Suguru, two peerless jujutsu sorcerers from Jujutsu High, have been given two missions by Tengen, an immortal known as the cornerstone of the jujutsu community.
One mission is the escorting and erasure of the “Star Plasma Vessel”, Amanai Riko, the girl chosen as the best match to merge with Tengen.
So the two of them set out on their escort mission in order to keep the jujutsu community going, but an assassin calling himself Fushiguro interferes in an attempt to assassinate the Star Plasma Vessel.
