Japan Import: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle bringing JoJo back

Here’s some good news. Jojo’s back! Namco Bandai is releasing a new JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting game. If you remember it, you’re kind-of dating yourself since this is something of a classic fighting series. I mean, the last time we’ve probably seen one is when Capcom released JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure on the Dreamcast and PlayStation and brought the game to arcades. Now that Namco Bandai and CyberConnect2 are putting together JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle, we may actually have a chance of seeing it again.

The reason for the announcement is due to a new anime adaptation of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga. It’s the 25th anniversary of the series this year and the anime and this game are how it’s going to be celebrated. It’s an unusual series about the Joestar family, which all have special powers, are really strong and happen to be able to be called JoJo. For example, one “JoJo” is really Joseph Joestar, while another is Jolyne Kujo.

We really don’t know all that much about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle, aside from the fact that it’s in development and on it’s way. The only other hint at what’s to come stems from a trailer Namco Bandai’s released.

It has a cel-shaded 3D look, which is always awesome. We also get to see that the “all stars” part refers to the fact that JoJos from many different entries in the manga series will be showing up to fight.

We don’t know when JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle is going to be released. We also don’t know if it will receive a worldwide release. It’s a niche series, so it could stay trapped in Japan. Not that it matters, as the PS3 is a region-free system and anyone who really wants this fighter can always eventually import it.
