    oh man Koichi and his stand Echoes?! Awesome

  • CyberConnect2 loves making Fighting games with plenty of playable characters… The Naruto UNS games, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure… And I’m -STILL- waiting for this proper .hack game with lots of characters too! .hack//Versus wasn’t enough. ;_;

  • Tales_of_Master
    • D-Rev

      It’s cheaper than the price Play-Asia has

    • TheGameTagerZ

      $350 for the special edition is robbery.

      • Z3

        Get a feeling so complicated

    • StarWarudo

      I’m getting that special edition if I can manage to land a job somewhere between now and the end of August.

  • Pedro Tavares

    Wasn’t expecting either to be in the game, cool.

    Now give me Funny Valentine and Cars next month CC

  • AkuLord3

    I’m not too surprised about Akira being playable…Part 4 doesn’t have many “fighter” type stand users, though i’m kinda surprised Koichi but not too much knowing how he would play. Can’t wait to go Echoes 3…Get that Super Saiyan hair with my Dissing Stand 8D

  • Prithivi

    I’d love to play as Hot Pants (there are only 2 female chars so far) and we definetely need more villains in this game!!!

    • JoJo_649

      INDEED, more female characters would be great, I’d love to see Lisa Lisa, Trish Una, F.F., as well as Hot Pants.

      • Matt Morgan

        Hot Pants would be awesome. I’m hoping for Mountain Tim, and the Scary Monsters version of Dio

  • StarWarudo

    Hmm, I wonder if they’ll give Jotaro his Part 4 costume. I’d love to see SSJ Star Platinum.

    I also finished Steel Ball Run yesterday so CC2 you better include Valentine and Diego in this game.

    • JoJo_649

      Valentine is a must have, just as Kars, BTW I hope they include Scary Monsters Diego.

      • StarWarudo

        I’m willing to bet my right hand that Kars will be playable. It would make zero sense to have ACDC and Wham but no Kars. Only thing I’m worried is whether 3-4 months is enough to include the rest of the villains from other parts like Diavolo, Valentine, or even Pucci.

        This is assuming there won’t be any future character DLCs.

        • Pombar

          I kinda feel like ACDC and Wham are all the villains you need from that arc. Kars doesn’t add much that aren’t covered by those two – I’d rather have some more unique dudes from other less well represented eras. It’s not like I’d be against Kars being added in general, though.

          • JoJo_649

            DA HELL, KARS is insanely unique, I really felt ACDC was the only one that it’s just an extra, he doesn’t gets much spotlight and altough his abilites are great, you can’t seriosuly compare it to Kars’ Blades and most importantly, his incarnation as the ultimate life form, growing wings, launching pirahnas, utilizing tentacles to strangle his foes and HECK, they can even include the monster squirrel, of course IMO.

          • Internet is Crash

            Don’t forget he can even use the Ripple. He’s that good :)

          • Jake Deerberg
  • Raoni Marques

    I still hope this game will make it to the west, even though the chances are slim. They gotta do it!

  • KyoyaHibari

    Figured these 2 would be in, they seemed like the best candidates.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    More Part IV characters! I’m hoping for more villains as well, there’s so many to choose from! I really enjoyed the villains in Part VII.

  • dahuuuundge

    Koichi is one color scheme away from becoming super saiyan.
