Bandai Namco shares the latest on their upcoming stylish brawler JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure with a look at two of its playable characters in Mariah from Part III: Stardust Crusaders and Narancia Ghirga from Part V: Vento Auero.
First is a look at Mariah’s character introduction video. Her battle style is “Stand-user” and she fights together with her Batest Stand. She has the ability to touch others with a cable which makes them affected by her magnetic effects.
The magnetic trap becomes stronger as Mariah keeps within a certain distance, and it pulls all kinds of different objects towards the affected characters, including nearby cars. She can also use various objects as projectiles. She’s weak at close-ranged combat, so you’ll want to be careful on not getting too close, but also staying in range.
Next up is a trailer for Narancia’s battle style. Narancia’s style is also a “Stand-user,” and he fights alongside his airplane-shaped Aerosmith Stand. His ability allows him to use Aerosmith to fly around and attack enemies from a distnace.
While in “Stand Mode” you can control Aerosmith and shoot down enemies with shots and explosions; however, Narancia is left open for attacks while in this mode, so you’ll want to be careful to find a good place to hide or distance yourself while activating this ability.
For close-ranged combat, Narancia is able to swiftly change between Stand Mode and regular mode for short bursts, and also use Aerosmith as part of his regular abilities, so he’s able to hold his own even while he’s not controlling the Stand from faraway.
