By Sato . September 30, 2013 . 6:00pm


It’s been about a month since Namco Bandai released JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, which had impressively sold 425,718 copies in its first week, and reportedly 80.95% of its shipment. In a new trailer for the game, we get a look at some new DLC characters, including a look at an upcoming special guest.



The trailer starts out by giving us a look at the recently released third set of DLC characters, which includes Lisa Lisa and an older Joseph Joestar. The campaign that started on the 26th, will be discounting DLC characters for half price, in addition to 128 Customize Medals, used for character costumes and actions.


We also get a peek at the upcoming fourth set of DLC characters, featuring Narciso Anasui and Vanilla Ice. Additionally, Namco Bandai tease Ikuro Hashizawa, the protagonist of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure creator Hirohiko Araki’s earlier manga “Baoh”.


Namco Bandai recently confirmed that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle will be released in North America in 2014.

    This game is so darn faithful to the source material it’s ridiculous.

  • Pinwheel

    Can’t wait for this game to hit North America. I’ve been checking every anime and game news site every morning for hope we’ll have some news, even if it’s name changes.

    • JoJo_649

      I’m glad I’m not the only one xD

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Can’t wait for the international release so online mode is actually playable. Other-wise fantastic game.

  • Flamboyant Ass Nigga

    I thought this game only had flamboyant men.

    • Mental

      If you consider the protagonist of part 6 as a man, then yeah.

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    I hope we at least get some of the DLC included with the game when it’s brought over here, I don’t wanna pay $5 per character.

  • Pdugna

    Hopefully with how this sold it will also let the newer version of the show continue so i can finally see the stands fight.

    • Pinwheel

      The blurays added a “to be continued” arrow at the end this time, so it’s a pretty large hint that we’ll be getting a Stardust Crusaders anime.

  • DaiRaiOh

    Kind of late, Him and Lisa Lisa were out 4 days ago

    • z_merquise

      Actually, it’s more than that. The trailer was shown back at TGS 2013.

      • DaiRaiOh

        Well the trailer was shown, but they didn’t actual put up the video for it until the character’s were actually released. But even then, 4 days late is a bit much

    • Herok♞

      doesn’t matter its better that the people not following it can see it as well. or better late then never

  • Herok♞

    I wonder how they are going to handle the dlc in America/Europe, the game is already at a disadvantage because not everyone knows what Jojo’s is and then they start we with all the problems from the Jap release

  • z_merquise

    This is the first time I hear Tomokazu Sugita’s voice as an old man. And it sound so great.

  • SigmaNHK
    • MasterScrub

      HO-RY SHIT!!!

  • Does anyone here own it?

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh… Vanilla Ice looked a bit darker in the anime/video game. At least, looking at screenshots from them make his skin look darker. Odd. Also, oh Anasui. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures version of Edward Cullen, who despite his lack of dignity still manages to be a somewhat more dignified stalker than Eddie. Cool that he could join the fight, though I do hope that F.F will be made playable somewhere down the line.

    • Chido55

      He takes the blow for Jolyne and Jotaro in the final Pucci fight, this guy is awesome. And coming upfront on declaration, he’s not really as stalker.

  • Ty Austin

    Super pumped to see Lisa Lisa and Older Joseph. As expected, Lisa Lisa moves a lot like Rose from SF. So happy this game is coming over here, now we just need confirmation that the 3rd arc of the anime is coming.


  • Vash bane

    LISA LISA!? awesome :O she is my second fav hamon user :p

    great news indeed. old joseph too!? yes -_-

  • Monterossa

    any word on localization? maybe I’ll import it when the price is dropped.

  • Heard about this a few days ago, im even more pumped for this now, when i saw the trailers i was disappointed that lisa lisa wasnt in but now she is ^ ^

  • Rafael Martines

    I wish one of them free like Pannacota :(

  • Raoni Marques

    Both characters are looking awesome! Gotta buy some psn HK credts to download them ASAP

  • leingod

    Awesome, love both Lisa Lisa and engrish-speaking older Joseph :D

    I kinda thought the third character would be young Speedwagon though.

    • Göran Isacson

      … Even Speedwagon is surprised that it isn’t him!

      Sorry. I’m sorry for that comment, I just saw lowhanging fruit and had to grab it.
