Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, quite possibly the most fabulous fighting game of all time, is now available in Europe and Australia exclusively for the PlayStation 3 via retail and download on the PlayStation Store, and will be seeing a North American release on the 29th of this month. Based on the manga of the same name, the 3D fighting game is brought to you by CyberConnect2, who is perhaps best known for developing the Naruto fighting games, as well as Asura’s Wrath. If nothing else, this is certainly a developer who can nail aesthetics, and this game most certainly delivers, with each frame of animation playing out like a panel in the original manga.
Next, you’re gonna say “what features are there?” Good question. There are multiple modes for you to muda and ora your way through. In addition to the standard versus mode, the game comes with an eight chapter story mode, an exclusive arcade mode, a customisation mode where you can customise your own flamboyant character to your liking, and a highly challenging campaign mode. The game features a cast of thirty-two characters (forty-one in total with DLC included) from the eight parts of the ongoing manga, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, with fourteen being playable from the start. In addition to the above mentioned modes, you can also beat your friends with horse combos and steam roller special attacks. Though it may not be the first game to feature such an attack, it may be the most stylish.
Yare yare daze.
Japanese players got their hands on this Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure: All Star Battle last August, and European and Australian fans can now purchase it via PlayStation 3 retail or download it from the PlayStation Store. North American players will have to wait a few more days until launch, but if you want to check out the game before launch, you can download the demo right now, which gives you access to a limited three match arcade mode with three playable characters: Jotaro Kujo, Caesar Zepelli, and the villain himself, Dio Brando.
