Bandai Namco has uploaded the latest trailers for their upcoming stylish brawler, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, featuring Diavolo from Part V: Vento Aureo, Diego Brando from Part VII: Steel Ball Run, and Noriaki Kakyoin from Part III: Stardust Crusaders.
First up is Diavolo, a “Stand-user” fighter with his Stand named King Crimson. Using his Epitaph and Erasing Time abilities, Diavolo is able to pull off some powerful moves. While they may be strong, they have lengthy cooldown times, so it’ll be important to use them wisely.
While erasing time, Diavolo disappears from the screens of other players, and he’s able to hit them in his own way. By holding down the R1 button, he consumes stamina in order to move around in this mode. Diavolo has great power, but his reach isn’t great.
Diego Brando has two battle styles of “Mount” and “Stand-user,” as he fights alongside his Scary Monsters Stand. Using his Stand’s abilities, Diego is able to transform others into dinosaurs. Using his dino abilities, Diego excels at attacking and mobility, making him an expert at close-ranged combat.
While in Human Mode, he has a variety of moves, and is able to fight while on horseback. In Dinosaur Mode, his moves become more limited, but his attacks can’t be guarded and he can’t be stunned by enemies.
Kakyouin is a “Stand-user” and fights together with his Stand called Hierophant Green. Using attacks such as “Emerald Splash,” Kakyouin is able to attack from a distance without having to get near his opponents; however, he’s not the best at taking hits, so you’ll want to keep a safe distance at all times.
Hierophant Green can leave behind barriers that hit enemies with Emerald Splash whenever they walk into its zone. You can also hold down the R1 button to send the barrier further distances.
The barriers are pretty useful, as they also come in different varieties. For example, you can have several barriers hit with multiple Emerald Splashes, or you can also fly over to places you’ve set barriers as a useful maneuver.
