CyberConnect2 is behind this stylistic anime-based fighting game, which promises to immerse you in “an authentic video game adaptation that stays true to creator Hirohiko Araki’s captivating art style and stars the anime series’ original Japanese VO actors.”
The “biggest game ever in the franchise” brings together 50 characters from every story arc, while letting you “experience popular battles from each story and see heroes from different universes interact for the first time, playing as Jonathan Joestar, DIO, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, daughter of Jotaro and the first-ever female JoJo in the series, and many more.”
The game will introduce “a completely revamped and improved version of the fight system first introduced in 2013, upping the tempo with hit stops, dashes, intricate new combos, and an all-new Support Attack tag-team battle system.”
Whereas the game modes you can participate in range from All-Star Battle Mode, Arcade Mode, Online Mode, Versus Mode, Practice Mode and Gallery Mode. You will also be able to unlock customisable and collectible skins, as well as unique illustrations that you can view in Gallery Mode.
“What sets apart JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R from other fighting games is Araki’s signature art style where fan favorite characters, story, and setting converge in outrageously fun and fast-paced battles,” explains Bandai Namco Entertainment America associate brand manager Ryan Wagner.
“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is the ultimate treat for JoJo fans, and the title will also appeal to fighting game fans with its robust roster of fighters, each with their own special moves, a range of customization options, and six different game modes for everyone from beginners to fighting game veterans.”
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 2nd September 2022.
