Jump Festa 2022 Revealed With Hybrid Virtual And In-Person Event

Janfes Island To Represent Virtual Event In Dedicated App Once Again


Shueisha has announced this year's installment of the Jump Festa fan event and after last year's virtual event which was held exclusively through the Jump Festa smartphone app with livestreams held on YouTube and through the event website, this year's installment will see the return of the in-person event alongside a companion virtual event through the same app.



The Jump Festa app will be updated with a new iteration of the virtual island called JanFes Island, where app users will take control of an avatar to visit various virtual exhibits and installations. The island will also operate with a scavenger hunt game, where virtual attendees will collect 22 unique virtual coins featuring the most popular Jump magazines and characters which can be redeemed through the virtual event's "Capsule Character Tower" for new characters to collect.



The highlight of the virtual event will be a new virtual art exhibit called the "Jump Original Art Musuem" where 130 high resolution images of original art from some of Jump's most popular authors with signatures will be available to look through and examine. Finally, the Zeblack digital bookstore powered by Shueisha will be featured in the virtual event through a dedicated library link to an external site where 33 selected magazines, along with the September 2021 issue of the recently revived Saikyo Jump anthology will be made available to virtual attendees for free reading.



In-person tickets will go on sale starting on November 15th for the in-person even being held at the Makuhari Messe, while the Jump Festa merchandise store will open for attendee browsing on November 19th, with Jump Festa merchandise orders being accepted from December 19th. In-person events and recorded segments will also be streamed via the official Jump YouTube channel and the Jump Festa NAVI app and website along with the Jump Festa app for attendees.
