Namco Bandai publishing CyberConnect2-developed JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle for PlayStation 3 based on long-running manga series.
The next body of work from Asura's Wrath developer CyberConnect2 will not be a sequel to that game, but rather a PlayStation 3-exclusive fighting game called JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle. The game is based on the long-running manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and was revealed as part of a press conference in Japan today attended by Andriasang.
Details are scarce on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle, but the game's first trailer (embedded below) offers a first glimpse at the project. The game appears to retain the source material's over-the-top action, with plenty of fists moving faster than the eye can follow, vehicle-based offense, and the series' "Stand" alter egos.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle is not the first fighting game based on the series. Capcom published a port of the 1998 arcade game for the original PlayStation and Dreamcast.
It was not mentioned if JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle would see release outside of Japan, and as of press time, Namco Bandai had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment. CyberConnect2 has a long history of manga licensed games, including several Naruto fighters and .hack role-playing games.
@manuelg89 I highly doubt they will change the art style anytime soon. I understand what your are saying but you gotta remember, this is based off of the original mangas. Which is exactly where this art style came from. It's a traditional style that has been used to create everything from Phantom Blood to the current one (JOJOLion I think they are calling it now). In other words, they are staying true to the manga.
YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!! It's about time we had another JOJO game. I have played almost all of them. The fighting game from PS1 (and the arcade version), the one on PS2 with Giornio Giovana (that manga took place in Italy) and the last one on the same system that began the entire series. So I am FREAKIN READY for this!!!!!! I hope Jotaro's daughter will be a playable character in this game. I can hardly wait.
Only the arcade or even the PS2 games (one by Capcom and one by Namco Bandai)?
Anyway why you don't start to reading?? Or watch the new anime adaptation??
Just know that this starts from all the beginning, there are too much casual people who still thinks JoJo is "Stardust Crusaders" (even if they don't know what does it mean).
So it will start with Phantom Blood.
Ah ok, maybe you don't know it: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is a generational manga started in 1987 by Araki which character design was based for the first 2 parts on "Hokuto no Ken/Fist of The North Star", then it just get better and original.
So much fighting games are based on this masterpiece.
