General Synopsis

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 オールスターバトル JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken: Ōru Sutā Batoru?) is an upcomingfighting game based on Hirohiko Araki's manga series, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. It is being developed by CyberConnect2 and will be published byNamco Bandai Games for PlayStation 3 in 2013.

Gameplay

 

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is a 3D fighting game much akin to Tekken and Street Fighter IV in which two fighters engage on a 2D plane with the ability to side-step a full 360 degrees around their opponent. Much like other fighting games, the game also includes a traditional set of status bars for the characters including the standard health bar which is depleted when attacked, as well as a guard bar which causes the characters guard to break when depleted, and a "Heart Heat" bar that, when full, allows characters to unleash more powerful "Heart Heat Attacks" much like traditional fighting game "Super Moves".

The game will also feature a "Style" button which acts much like the Stand button from Capcom's previous Jojo's Bizarre Adventure arcade game, allowing characters to activate their special powers, changing the way in which the character's attacks work and affect their opponent. As characters who do not possess Stands will be featured in the game, this button will activate the character's Ripple powers when appropriate, and other possible abilities including a horse and the Spin in the case of Gyro Zeppeli and Johnny Joestar.

I'm just steadily going along with what has been released by the 2012 anime adaption (which I highly recommend). Hopefully it gets as far as the end of SBR.

2 more episodes :((( Hoping we get a preview for part 3 at the end of the last episode.

I don't really care for fighting games but this is one of the better looking ones IMO.

They could of atleast stretched it to 50 episodes, but even with that I don't they could squeeze both Part 3 and 4 into it ;( 

You totally jumped into the JoJo bandwagon as soon as you heard Sugita was voicing Joseph xD

A lot of care and attention has been put into the game so in respects to that (and the franchise) and would advise anyone to keep tabs on it. The release date is still a bit off (29th August).

I planned to watch it before I heard Sugita was voicing him :P I don't watch anime for the VAs though. But having my favorite VAs in an anime I'm interested in is good.

Probably my next pick up. I've been sporadically been picking random parts without any context to the previous arcs e.g. Bypassing Part 3 to read Part 4
