imageJoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle will have an online versus mode. The news comes from a flyer promoting CyberConnect2’s fighting game, which also says JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle has over 30 characters. The roster will include characters from part one all the way up to part eight.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is scheduled to come out on August 29 for PlayStation 3.

    For the most part, whenever a game advertises “over [number]” of something, that means it’s just over that number (EG the original Pokemon games promoting over 150 Pokemon, then there were 151).

    This honestly worries me a bit about the number of characters, though it’s probably paranoia.

    • KonjikinoSora

      Storm 3 (by the same developers) claimed to have over 80 characters, and there are 80 character squares. I think you have reason to worry.

    • Brandonmkii

      If 30 characters isn’t enough for you, I don’t know what to say.

      • Fub Frank

        Seriously. This seems like plenty already.

    • AkuLord3

      There is already 29 characters that were revealed…and that’s just up to Part 5 (which they could include more from some rumors) so they still got Part 6 and 7, maybe even another from 8.
      Point is…the number that it is now is pretty good considering this to be the first game

      • KonjikinoSora

        Please don’t say that. I don’t want to see a second one with a few more characters that feels like a watered down experience (Storm Generations).

      • KyoyaHibari

        I’d say we at least got to get Part 1 Dio, Lisa Lisa, Iced, Foo Fighters, Pucci and maybe some other Part 5-7 villains.

        • JoJo_649

          how about Risotto and Cioccolatta from part V and Diego (Scary Monsters) and Funny Valentine for part VII.

          • KonjikinoSora

            I don’t think Cioccolatta would work in this kind of game, as you cannot go underneath your opponents. It would be better if you could play as Secco combined with him, similar to how Hol Horse is combined with J Geil.

          • JoJo_649

            Well if they included Rohan Kishibe, they can include anybody, altough Ciocolatta would be awesome if they include his dismembered body parts as his main game mechanic, like Fortune in Skullgirls and Secco for his GH attacks.

          • KyoyaHibari

            Yeah I was about to say Risotto, Valentine and maybe Diego; they are other viable options but I forgot about mentioning them.

        • Michael Cadogan

          All I want is Iggy dammit. I know he’s been put on a “leaked” character list, but I just need to have him.

  • KonjikinoSora

    Why haven’t you guys reported that there is a new PV coming on Sunday? It’s been announced on the official website for a while now.

  • KnifeAndFork

    *prays for a solid netcode*

  • XiaomuArisu

    Your next words will be: “I hope this wont be jap only”

    • AkuLord3

      I hope this won’t be…awww damn it!

    • lozffvii

      I hope this wont be jap…

    • JoJo_649

      I hope this won’t……

    • hickorypan

      Aw, you know it’s gonna be. Remember how stupid the names sounded in the Part 3 game? They just can’t get around the music copyright issue.

      I suppose they could translate the Part 5 names to italian to dodge the problem (Aerosmith > Aerofabbro, G.E. > Esperienza Oro) or Part 4 to japanese (idk how). I just can’t imagine what they’d do for any other part.

  • James Williams

    Didn’t they say there was going to be a massive amount of characters in the game? 30’s a good number, i’d always welcome more though.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Around the time of this release, I’m hoping for some more info on that Part 3 continuation. The Neptune anime will be done by then, I think. (if that has anything to do with it).
    Part 6 has come pretty insane stands… I wonder who they’ll choose.

  • its been a while since they have released a trailer and a whole bunch of new characters have since then been added that I would like to see in motion.

    Kars from P2
    Esidisi from P2
    Ceasar Zepelli from P2
    Koichi Hirose from P4
    Rohan Kishibe from P4
    Akira Otoishi from P4
    Bruno Bucellati from P5
    Narancia from P5
    Diavolo from P5

    I heard rumors of more characters for P6 and P7

    • Hmm now that I noticed there is a strong chance that all the villains from P1 to P7 may likely be present in the game.

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        yeah the main antagonist in each part gotta all be in the game! That just leaves Part 6 and 7 for now… Yoshikage Kira is already DLC…
        Dio from Part 3 is already in…
        Pucci and Valentine have to make it in!
        I have no idea who would be good choices from part 6 or 7 though…

        • I’m definitely hoping P6 F.F. is in this one as for P7 well I’m thinking of Hot Pants or Mountain Tim hmmm that one is a toughie for me.

    • KonjikinoSora

      Like I stated before, on the official website they tease a new PV (Promotional Video, or trailer) to be released on Sunday.

      • Oh thats great hopefully this is the one that showcases the new characters.

        • KonjikinoSora

          PV 5 has finally been leaked with a lot of screams of excitement in the background.

          • timanel1

            im just sad no part 1 Dio and no Vanilla Ice

          • KonjikinoSora

            I was sad that no story mode was shown.

  • timanel1

    hum.. well i was hoping for 40+ characters.. anyway i hope dio from part 1 will be in the game . and they could make dlc characters too.. most important : EU release.

  • Mavalex

    With each character added, the hype increases

  • Vash bane
