The long running manga series Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is getting a lot of attentions lately. First with the release of the acclaimed Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle on PS3 (here’s our review), then with the announcement of a very surprising western release of it next year. And now it’s the turn of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Shooters, published by Namco Bandai on iOS and Android.
FUCK YEAH! Just fuck yeah! We all were so excited and so sad at the same time for the Japanese exclusivity of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle when it came out almost a month ago, but now we can be happy again!
Indeed, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle is headed to North America and Europe sometime in 2014, Namco Bandai announced at its pre-TGS showcase earlier today.
Also CyberConnect2 president and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama said that the localized version of the game will be on par with the Japanese version’s character balance:
“We are still making character adjustments – even in the Japanese version – based on the feedback that we’re getting from fans. All of that feedback will be implemented in the overseas [version].”
Are you on the hype train for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle? We are! And since yesterday Play-Asia has pus on pre-order the Limited Edition for the game we are even more!
From the picture above you can see all the contents from the special (and quite pricey) edition. Obviosuly we’ll get the game with a special box, but also the soundtrack disc, and art plate (inside an acryl case) and a very cool action figure. Below a more detailed pic of the action figure.
Unfortunately the game release is set to be Japan only for now, but hey, it’s a fighting game on a region free console! Let’s thing about it, it’ll be out on August 29th. Here’s a trailer to refresh your memory.
As every well respectable nerd on the planet, beside video games, we also love manga and anime. So when a new video game based on a manga series comes out we are even more excited! Especially if we’re talking about Hirohiko Araki‘s masterpiece: JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures.
You might have noticed that there’s a new game scheduled, it’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: All Stars Battle, and it looks pretty awesome. The fighting game is being developed by CyberConnect2 (known for the .hack series and its not-always-good fanservice products, as all Naruto fighting games) and will be published by Namco Bandai Games only for PlayStation 3 on August 2013 (fuck, this is an exclusive!).
Earlier this week, Namco Bandai released a new trailer for the game, featuring most of the playable characters (from all the 8 JoJo’s series) and quite a lot of gameplay footage. Enjoy.
It’s a real shame this game won’t be multi-platform.
