Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is making a proper comeback this year with a new anime series scheduled for airing in Japan this October, and not one but two fighting games.
One of these is Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, a new fighter developed by Naruto Shippduden: Ultimate Ninja Storm developer, CyberConnect 2. You can find a trailer for that game here. The other is Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver., an HD re-release of Capcom’s 1998 fighting game, which the publisher announced at the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. will be upgraded with HD visuals and Capcom say the updated game will also contain online features comparable to Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. will be released on Xbox Live on August 21st and PlayStation Network on August 22nd for 1600 MSP and $19.99 respectively. No official screens or footage are available yet, but we’ll keep an eye out for them.
