While JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has its own fighting game, JoJo characters will also be present in J-Stars Victory Vs., the upcoming crossover anime fighter by Namco Bandai.


A leak from the latest issue of Weekly Shounen Jump magazine (via: Anime News Network) reveals that multiple characters from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and one from the Jigoku Sensei Nube manga will be playable in J-Stars.


On the JoJo side, Jonathan Joestar and Joseph Joestar will both be playable. Meanwhile, on the Nube side, Meisuke Nueno will be on the selectable roster as well.


J-Stars Victory Vs. is in development for PlayStation 3 and Vita. Pre-ordering the game in Japan will net players a J-Stars Victory Book that contains information and visual pertaining to the Jump manga heroes over the years. Additionally, a free AR app for Vita will let you view the Jump heroes in your surroundings.


J-Stars Victory Vs. is scheduled for release on March 19th, 2014 in Japan.
