Stand with your arms crossed for JoJo this August.
The folks at Siliconera report that, according to the newest Shonen Jump magazine, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle is coming to PlayStation 3 on August 29th. You’ll soon be able to relive some of your favourite battles from the popular manga, brought to you by Namco Bandai and Asura’s Wrath developer CyberConnect2… but only in Japan (no word on any overseas release). The Shonen Jump article also confirms that the hero of the current JoJo story arc, JoJolion, will also be in the game.
All Star Battle will come in two flavours: The Standard Edition, and a Special Edition. Delicious.
The Special Edition comes with a figurine of Jotaro Kujo, an illustration by JoJo author and artist Hirohiko Araki, and a CD soundtrack all in a pretty box.
But wait! There’s more!
Both editions of the game will come with… wait for it… DLC codes. First run copies of the games will come with codes for Part IV baddie Yoshikage Kira, as well as Part IV ally Hayato Kawajiri’s memo book.
I know JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has an audience outside of Japan, but I don’t know if it’s large enough to warrant them bringing it over here (I would hope so!). They could always just release it digitally if they need to; I certainly wouldn’t mind if it meant I can play it.
Anyhoo, until we hear more, here’s a video of some of the characters beating the snot out of each other. More importantly, it has Dio in it. That’s all that matters at this point.
