    good… good… no need to know his true identity for those who didnt read Part IV!

  • Byas

    But wasn’t Kosaku already in the game? (another “skin” but still the same guy I guess, unless it’s the “actual” Kosaku but even then I don’t remember he actually doing something in the manga).
    Valentine was expected.

    • Fulgur

      You must remember that he was hit by the arrow (again) while he was Kosaku and his stand changed, most notably to give him a space-time manipulation ability that seems to be legally required for every final boss in JJBA (from part 3 to 7, everyone has something to do with time/space/dimensions).

    • OkamiKing

      Well sorta…. The Scans confirmed Kosaku will be in Last Boss mode, meaning “Another one bites the dust”, stray cat, etc. Its an entirely different play style from what I can gather…

      Also… Been wanting to say this for when he was announced..


  • Only 27 days late for the President, that’s still good.
    Kosaku is a bit weird, I thought he would just be palette swap for Kira (yeah, I said it. You had almost twenty years to read it anyway, also Lord Vader is Luke’s father.) This makes me a bit frustrated, because we now have two Dios and two Kiras, but no FF, Weather Report, Iggy or Hot Pants. C’mon, CC2, at least the main allies should be there.

    • Apparently there’s a leaked list somewhere that predicted pucci, rohan and valentine before they reveal. The list had FF, Weather Report, and Iggy. So we might still get them but you know how leaked list can go sometime…

      • Yeah, I know that list, it predicted everyone correctly since Caesar and ACDC. But I don’t remember Kawajiri there, even when it had DIO, Dio Brando and Diego.

      • Ninastars

        I’m pretty sure that “leaked” list is fake and I’d take it with an extreme grain of salt. Iggy is one of the least likely characters I’d see in the game.

        • Funny since everybody thought about Rohan like that. And Iggy was playable in the old Capcom game, so if only his hitbox is fixed (dunno how did they do it with Koichi), he would be a legitimate fighter. People even though up on making him one with Old Joseph, to take damage.
          Now, Petshop, on the other hand…

          • Ninastars

            Iggy wouldn’t have any storyline fights unless they put in Petshop too. And this is a game focusing on the entire series so IMO minor Part 3 characters should be kept to minimum.

          • He’s not a minor character though, he’s a member of the group of allies, with Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin and Polnareff.

            And we don’t even know what storyline they thought about, it might be some fanfiction with D4C battle as the last one.

    • KnifeAndFork

      No Lisa Lisa!? No Yukako Yamagishi!? No Trish?

      C’mon we need more females up in this fabulous sausage fest!

  • Hunts Rattata

    And another gone, and another gone…

  • Thatguy

    Another one bites the dust!
    Aaaannnndddd Funny Valentine! One epic President. Or many epic Presidents

  • Internet is Crash

    Wow Part 4 gets the most representatives! I hope Narciso and Diego makes it in

  • Ninastars

    Finally the whole Kira DLC debate can be put to rest. I was certain Kawajiri would be in as a separate character from the start.

  • Rohan Kishibe

    God… how big is this roster now? I so want this!

  • KyoyaHibari

    So Kosaku is a whole nother character…figured as much. Still, I never really saw the point because Kira took over his body anyways, and the only real addition to his power is Another One Bites the Dust, so why make him a new character rather than just have an outfit swap?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      But there’s also Stray Cat (the plant-like stand) in Killer Qieen’s abdomen. You know, now Killer Queen can make air bombs lol.
      I wish he didnt take the spot for another character… but considering Kira is DLC, we technically didn’t have the Part IV final antagonist…

      • KyoyaHibari

        Ooooooook, I haven’t gotten that far in the manga yet, but Stray Cat is pretty OP, so this could be an interesting usage of it ;P.

  • KnifeAndFork

    Play-Asia better not mess up my pre-order like they did with Fist of the North Star 2…

  • And all Villains have been accounted for except for Part 8 since its still ongoing. I’ll pick this up sometime after the holidays even though I won’t know the language I won’t let that phase me unless Namco brings it stateside like Saint Seiya.

  • dahuuuundge


    • KyoyaHibari

      Dirty deeds, and they’re done dirt cheap…
