Capcom enhanced the sprites for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. and released two comparison screenshots to show off the differences.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. also has online play with eight player lobbies and a matching system with skill points sort of like Super Street Fighter IV. The game comes out for PlayStation 3 on August 21 for $19.99 and Xbox 360 on August 22 for 1,600 Microsoft Points.

  • I’ll probably stick with the original look, if it’s selectable which it seems like it, I never liked Filtered Sprites.

    Edit: well re-looking, the filter doesn’t look that bad, and the Cut-ins look Nice, though some detail is lost in the HD

  • Remastered? Hardly. That’s just a filter like can be seen in any standard emulator. Its all procedural differences.

  • Derek

    It almost like it doesn’t even made a difference, the anime look kinda drains the definition. 

  • My body is ready.

      *rolls you up in seran wrap* and pushes you down a mountain*

  • Nice filters Capcom, you sure have put effort into this.

    • MrRobbyM

      Old game + add filter = PROFIT.

  • Crevox

    It’s just filter derp

  • John Lawson

    lol, just a filter with added shading effects, hardly enough to call it hd, but jojo on xbla/psn is enough for me to buy it.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Should’ve called it Classic graphics!

  • Tales_of_Master

    Can’t wait to get this, but I’m still waiting for more news on the new PS3 game. Defiantly going to support anything JOJO-related that comes to the west. Finally, my favorite Manga of all times is getting some love :D

  • MrRobbyM

    19.99 is a little steep for a game that isn’t any more “HD” than it used to be. They just added a filter. Anyways, I might consider getting this if only it will show that there is an audience that wants Jojo’s All Star Battle.

    • Sperium3000

       They also added online play.

      • And? 3rd Strike Online and Skullgirls were 15 dollars and had online…soooo no excuse

        • Ty Austin

          That $5 will surely break me… >_>

      • MrRobbyM

        That’s not enough to warrant 19.99, at least to me.

  • akeboshi

    $20 for a port I can play for free.


    • Alexisonfire

      You do know GGPO services for Jojo’s will be shut down once a legit way of playing it online is available.

      The same thing happened with 3S.

      • Dario Portillo

        You can still play 3S on GGPO on the Karnov Room

    • Ty Austin

      You can say the same thing for any classic game released on the PSN/XBL/Wii/etc  

      The point is, you can now play it legally.

    Keep on pushing out those rehashes capcom.

    R.I.P. Breaker’s Revenge and Magical Drop III Lobbies.

  • d19xx

    Hands on the first comparison pic says it all. Filtered pic looks like chewed bubblegum…

  • Andrew Austin

    This is so terrible.

  • Go2hell66

    so this is the HD remastering?

    capcom stealing all our money since forever?

  • Fitzkrieg

    Nice antialiasing, Capcom.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Lol. Is it only me here but is the change there miniscule that my eyes must focus more before i can notice the difference???T_T

  • Tee Niitris

    Filters FTW.

    Meh… my expectations were pretty low anyway.

    edit : fixed

  • Besides the lazy effort of “HD” i rather play with the old sprites anyway, and since i enjoy Jojo, i’ll pick this up…not on the first release but soon

  • TheGameTagerZ

    I can’t see the difference…

    • For one, it’s less pixelated.

      • TheGameTagerZ

        It’s lazy. 

  • Foxeh Shihōin

    nice 2xSaI rendering capcom you really put a lot of “work” in this! :D

    oh lets not forget the hatching on the shades! good for you!
    ok imma be real here. while the hatching technique is nice. you can barely pass this off as HD “REMASTERED” graphics. since other than hatching, was image scaling renders that was used on old emulators. anti aliasing, 2xSaI, HQ4x, etc.while it may still be called HD for there resolution, but the art is barely remastered, re visualized or anything. i mean, take super street fighter 2 hd for an example.
    or even simpler, mighty switch force

    now im not bashing capcom, or bashing their game. i just don’t agree with their way of things. because it’s not too much of a difference here and even if it wasn’t called HD, it would still attract most of the fans of the good game.

    • Ty Austin

      SF HD remix took forever for Capcom to do, and when it was finally out, it looked like a Flash game you played on your browser.

  • nbanon

    They should just pack the good old CRT TVs with the SD version of this game, and sell both as an enclosure ltd edition instead.

  • I don’t think Capcom said anything about them being “HD sprites.” The article said that Capcom sent them “enhanced sprites,” which they clearly are. Why is it a big deal that they used a smoothing filter and added shadowing? Enhancing a game does take work/time. Gamers are hateful creatures. That Tekken-guy was right. Bitchbitchbitchbitchbitch.

    • “HD ver” refers to resolution, before anyone say “UMMMM!!!”

  • Solomon_Kano

    Can we switch back and forth between the two? I wouldn’t really mind either look, to be honest.
