    ……I still can’t get over the fact that this is coming over.
    Name your date Namco and CC2, and my money is yours. ^_^

    • I agree! I don’t understand a lick of this series but I’d love to play it!

      • Herok♞

        Jojo is pretty good, you should read it if you get the chance

      • Chido55

        You have time before it came out.
        Go read the 8 parts and you will certainly enjoyed this game even more.

        • Vash bane

          how long that take you? part 3 its taking quite awhile to finish( mind you when I read it I use atleast 2 hours each time and think im finally near dio’s arc lmao long series eh?)

          • Chido55

            Well, idk how to estimate that for you XD
            But I finished Part 7 SBR overnight. I just can read that much at a go.

  • Spirit Macardi

    This is one game that I don’t mind isn’t being dubbed, considering there’s no official English voice cast.

    Though granted, there’s one guy in Canada who would probably do all the voices himself if asked x3

    • KyoyaHibari

      It’ll probably be dub only actually so they can work with the slug names. It would be pretty awkward if they tried to edit the existing voicework to avoid copyrights. Pretty sure that’s what will happen at least.

      • Lynx

        -Dub only

        Sub only.
        They confirmed it a while ago.

        • KyoyaHibari

          …really? What the hell…this is a disaster waiting to happen.

  • OkamiKing

    I’m happy that the game is coming out in America…. Kinda unhappy that the trailer is literally pasted and skewed together…..

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Back in Black is still there! haha

  • I find myself wishing this were an RPG, or something more along the lines of Yakuza in the action/RPG/adventure sense.

    • Ninastars

      Yakuza? Nay.

      Open world SBR horse-racing game when.

  • Bunzi

    Might just be coincidence/the way the trailer was cut/what he says in the game now, but it looks like Avdol’s Crossfire Hurricane (from the Rolling Stones’ Jumping Jack Flash) was edited for him to just say Hurricane Special. I guess we’ll see the rest.

    • MSJ

      HAHA, Jumpin’ Jack Flash also appears in part 6: stone ocean

  • DemonShadowX

    Got the import….. Still giving my money for this game though once it comes our way.

  • Muffum

    I’m hyped for the game, but from a promotional point of view, this trailer was pretty bad. They just took one of the Japanese trailers (a trailer that was released before the complete cast was revealed, mind you), sliced it in half, spliced in random in-game music over 99% of the dialogue, didn’t bother to subtitle 99% of the dialogue/text they left in, and called it a day.

    • 永次

      This trailer was PRETTY BAD, HORRIBLE. The music, the removed voices… horrible.

      • AkuLord3

        Well the music is awesome but yeah everything else…pretty damn lazy

        • 永次

          The music may be good but not for this trailer.

      • SlickRoach

        It felt extremely awkward seeing the characters talk with no dialogue coming from their mouths. Let’s just hope it’s just a rough patch and only the early trailer material ._.

    • Hound

      If anything, the trailer makes me worried that they removed massive chunks of the in-game dialogue =x
      I was wondering how they’d counteract the obvious “Gold Experience Requiem,” “Aerosmith!,” “Purple Haze” etc, but I honestly hope the solution isn’t “Cut the dialogue out of most of the game”

  • Arcana Wiz

    this is FA-BU-LOUS! the game i mean….. the trailer not so much…

  • dahuuuundge


  • Tom

    I would like to play the PS2 game that never left Japan.

  • It’s kind of funny to realize that no two English releases for JJBA have used the same logo. Though I’d call this one the best so far. :3

  • John Diamond

    i’m actually interested who’d be casted when they dub this.

    • leingod

      Who said it’s gonna be dubbed? I actually prefer they don’t… that way the game will come out sooner.

      • John Diamond

        if they dub this

    • Ace

      Johnny Yong Bosch plays everyone.

      • Hraesvelgr

        To be honest, the “Johnny Yong Bosch as everyone” joke is played out. It needs to be updated to “Troy Baker as everyone”, because Troy Baker actually is in everything.

  • Scarletmoonwish

    Really stoked for the game, but a little worry about how they will handle localizing, I know there is some complication with certain characters names and attack names. I mean for goodness sake, I’m not not big on Rock but I know who AC/DC is.

    Do anybody know if they going to Sub or Dub, because from my understanding of the trailer they still using Japanese voices.

    • MasterScrub

      It’s been confirmed that it’s JPN voices only, IIRC

    • Chido55

      They mentioned that for characters for Part 2 specially will follow the names from the 2012 anime.
      So AC/DC will be Esidisi, Cars will be Kars. Wammu!

  • Hinataharem

    Aw they didn’t show any health bars. I wanted to see the name changes

  • Bentan

    i hope it gets a ps4/ vita port too
