Bandai Namco shared the latest on their upcoming stylish brawler, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, with three new trailers featuring Pet Shop from Part III: Stardust Crusaders, Yoshikage Kira from Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable, and Johnny Joestar from Part VII: Steel Ball Run.

 

First is a look at Pet Shop, who fights as a “Stand-user” with his Horus Stand. With the ability to control ice, Pet Shop and Horus are able to fly around with high mobility to attack enemies from a distance.

 

He can shoot giant ice attacks that can be charged to become larger by holding down the R1 button. This is best done by catching enemies off guard while fighting on land. While Pet Shop can fly around freely, he has low defense and must land somewhere to charge up his stamina after it runs out before being able to fly again.

 

Next up is Yoshikage Kira, a “Stand-user” who fights alongside his Stand called Killer Queen. Using his Stand’s ability, Kira is able to transform anything he touches into bombs. While these bombs are extremely powerful, they can also hurt Kira, so you’ll want to be careful with that.

 

While he can join in on the close-ranged battles, he can only set a bomb on one target at a time, so it’ll be important to analyze the situation and carefully plant them on the right opponents. By pressing the R1 button, he’s able to blow up bombs that he set on opponents or objects in the stage.

 

Killer Queen sets the bombs on opponents using a special attack, and Kira can also toss bomb coins as traps. He can also blow up enemies from a distance using his “Sheer Heart Attack,’ but it’ll always target the nearest source of heat.

 

Finally, we have Johnny Joestar with the battle style of “Horseback” and “Stand-user,” and fights alongside his Stand called Tusk. He specializes in “Nail Bullets” that can be shot from long range to keep a distance from enemies.

 

Since Johnny is paraplegic, he relies on his horse Slow Dancer to get him around while fighting with high mobility and power. His Nail Bullets are powerful, but they leave him open to attacks with its long delay, but this delay can be shortened after drinking some herbal tea. While not mounted, you’ll need to use his “Homing Dash” to get away from enemies until Johnny can get back on Slow Dancer.

 

Here are the other characters we’ve seen thus far and their highlight videos:

 

 

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven will release in Japan on December 17, 2015 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
