Jump Festa is back and even bigger! This year’s 38th issue of Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump journal revealed on Monday that Shueisha will hold the Jump Festa ’22 occasion as both an online and in-person event.
There were some surprises from the announcement. It was revealed that the event will feature the return of the “Jump Festa Island” experience via a special smartphone app, although Shueisha stated it will “power up” the experience this year. The app will again stream some of the stage presentations at the event.
As for the in-person event, it is expected to be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture with tickets shared out to fans by way of lottery and attendance is going to be restricted. The 38th issue of the magazine acknowledged that details concerning the physical event are subject to change as a result of the new coronavirus illness (COVID-19) pandemic.
