Four New Characters Enter The Mix In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle [Update]

Update: The four characters below are confirmed to be in the game, but haven’t been confirmed to be playable. There’s a possibility they could simply be Stage Gimmick characters. We’ll have more clarification on this front as further news is made available.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle boasts over 30 characters who will be going wild In the recently announced online versus mode. Things are about to get rowdier, though, as Namco Bandai have just announced four new characters entering the mix.


Here are the four new characters:


  • Melone: The antagonist from Part V: Vento Aureo will be joining along with his Baby Face stand.


  • Daniel J. D’Arby: First appeared as a villain in Part III: Stardust Crusaders. D’Arby has the ability to turn his opponents into coins. His younger brother Telence will also appear in the game, but it has yet to be confirmed whether he’ll be a playable character.


  • Emporio Alnino: The young boy from Part VI: Stone Ocean will be joining the fight with the use of his Ghost Object ability, that allows him to pull any object from his Burning Down the House stand.


  • Robert Edward O. Speedwagon: More commonly known as Speedwagon from Part I: Phantom Blood and Part II: Battle Tendency. Not much has been revealed as to how he’ll be fighting, but we’d  imagine he’ll be busting out his hammer to smash enemies.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is slated for release on August 29th for PlayStation 3.

  • Melone huh very interesting and I’m surprised at both Daniel and Emporio being in this heck even more surprising but I knew many people wanted him is Speedwagon. I’ll look forward to importing this.

    • Ohh I see so these four are just have narrative roles in the game. People still wants Speedwagon playable even if it has to be a joke character.

  • They aren’t playable. They’re announcer voices. Whoever made this article please fix it before everyone thinks that these people are playable.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      wow… my hopes just shot down… That explains the Speedwagon narration during the latest trailer…
      Well too bad Melone… I was looking forward to playing as him…
      I was happy to have more villains join the fray… well maybe next time

      • Cioccolata is in as a stage Hazard.

        Part 5’s Character introductions are done. They show the main Villain of each part to end that part’s reveals.

        Most likely next:

        Phantom Blood Dio, Diego Brando, Soundman, and Funny Valentine.

        Then for Part 6, F.F, Anasui, and Pucci.

        Thats really all thats left at this point. Can’t see anymore characters being added in for JoJoLion, except maybe Kyou but thats highly unlikely.

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          That make sense, once they’ve showed the villain that Part is done. Although I feel like Phantom Blood Dio would seem unnecessary…
          I would’ve liked Vanilla Ice (Cream) and Ghiaccio (White Album) in or more like more villains than just the main antagonist.
          Those Part 6 characters seem to be the only reasonable choices left.
          btw have you read the new chapter for JoJolion? I wish this wasn’t monthly…

          • I sure have read the latest JoJolion that suspense that is building is insane for me. I need to know more and man I feel so bad for who’s name I will not mention.

        • KonjikinoSora

          I think that we need Weather Report.

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            I believe he’s a stage hazard for that prison stage from Part 6.

          • Well it doesn’t have to be true since Kars is part of a stage with Lisa Lisa but yet he is playable.

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            weather report actually does something as a stage hazard. Similar to Pesci’s Beach Boy stand in that train station stage, Weather Report does something that can hurt the two opponents fighting each other. The only thing seen though is Weather Report causes raining frogs from the earlier trailers. Kars and Lisa Lisa seem to just be sitting in the background though, no interaction with the fight going on.
            I just looked up info on Vanilla Ice and it seems like he’s a stage hazard too.

          • Good point there. ohh well here’s hoping that F.F. is playable. Its pretty obvious that the villains from 6 and 7 will be in it.

        • timanel1

          we still have vanilla iced , lisa lisa , abbachio , etc..

    • Babacar Diop

      thank god….for a second i was getting pissed.
      lol love your youtube channel bro, at least when it comes to jojos stuff

  • The Article that this is from specifically says “Non-Playable Characters”

    These guys are all known for their talking, and they’re only seen in the menu’s.

    Also Telence was only in a commercial promoting the game, It isn’t confirmed that he’s in the game in any way.

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso

    not charas? and here i was, thinking the game was just getting EVEN better!
    no problem though, if no eu/na release date is set by 3-4 month after jp release, my christmas gift is this game imported!
    ORRR i could become weak and get the limited edition @ launch :X

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Do you know any sites that have the LE for less than or equal to $200 (not including shipping)?

  • MrTyrant

    Diego Brando when?

  • Genjo

    lawl that’s pretty cool now that voice actors are playable nice! now is left is rest of cast to be added and that should give more mix of option to play with hahaha!?!?!

    • TheGameTagerZ

      They aren’t playable. They rushed this article and wrote that they were.

      • Genjo

        i know that’s why i though it was funny lol

  • AkuLord3

    I was about to be super surprised but seeing comments and such, they’re not playable…and really it makes sense since all 4 (maybe Melone could and Speedwagon in some way) aren’t fighters at all, so it be weird

  • Mavalex

    So does playing as Jotaro immediately mess up D’arby?

  • ssj3gokou24

    I’m sorry, i preordered the game yet only know of the stardust characters. (jojo, dio, Joseph, etc.) Where can i read up on this manga so i can at least know what the hell is going on when i get the game?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      You can read it on Batoto… I think it’s okay to say this because I’m not linking to the site and well you already read Part 3 which is the only Part that was licensed in English… I would buy the whole series if it was in English…
      Be sure to read the Invincible Trio’s Part 4 translation (they have multiple English translations on that site). The Invincible Trio have not finished the last 4 volumes of Part 4, but at least you don’t have to deal with the Duwang scans the whole Part.

      • Mavalex

        But the Duwang ones are the best lol

        • StarWarudo

          Indeed. Reading all of part 4 Duwang translations was a very unique experience.

    • Dexward

      For Part 1 and Part 2 (Stardust Crusaders is Part 3), just watch the anime.

  • James Williams

    Aren’t these guys different systems instead?
    E.G Speedwagon for narrating battles, Melone for making opponents for practice mode?
    I sweat Abbachio was spoken about awhile ago and instead of being a playable fighter he’d have his stand power be the replay feature.

  • Melissa

    I only see there being two more reveals part 6 and part 7 characters. My guess its F.F, Anasui (because someone already spilled the beans about him being in the game), and Pucci and then Hot Pants, Diego, and Funny Valentine.

  • Pipiskin99

    i can’t imagine how d’arby and his brother will work in the game, it would be perfect if they made minigames with them, just like it was in the manga
