Nothing Bizarre About Seeing Stars After Getting Your Lights Punched Out By Jojo

It’s certainly Jojo and his pals all right in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Shooters. This odd “medal” game from Namco Bandai lets players trail the story of the extended Jojo family’s storyline and fights are done using striker medals representing Jojo and his team against foes. Like I mentioned last time, the only close version I can think of to explain it is carrom.

 

These medals will represent as complete a character would be in other RPG’s, including what looks like health bars, special attacks that animate when they hit a foe and combo systems. That’s a crazy amount of skills and special video effects going off for a simple medal game if skills activate every turn or so. If the video didn’t give it away, this is a smartphone game that hopes to re-jig the joy of Jojo, but it’ll have animated segments when the story plays out.

 

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Shooters is set for the iOS and Android in 2014.

    Really? I thought it was IOS only?

    Are they any games of this genre available in NA? These whole “medal shooter” games have always interested me but now that Jojo is involved I have to try it.

    People complain about these games but i would really like to see some at least partially decent games on Google play.

    A Jojo Game… on iOS… IS NOTHING SACRED ANYMORE?!

    but seriously, this looks pretty cool and interesting. At first a metal pin game sounds a bit odd, but it looks like they’re putting a lot of depth in it.

    But which JoJo? Almost all the protags can be nicknamed JoJo.
