Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

HORA HORA HORA everyone! By now you should know that here at That Damn Pixel we’re not that fond of reviews, also considering our non-interest in scores, but sometime, some games, are worthy to be discussed a little further and this is the case of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle, released last year on PlayStation 3 and exclusively for the Japanese (and Asian) market.

How to play JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle online

If you’re one of the lucky owner of that amazing game that’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle (let’s short it in just JBAASB) you’ll probably wonder, at some point, if and how you can play it online and possibly lose against some japanese guy.

Well, if you are a smart guy (and you all are, right), you’ve probably already tried to select the “versus” option from the main menu and then, eventually, the one that says PlayStation Network. Guess what? It didn’t work. Why? Because you need to to download some stuff first.

So, you select the option to play online, but all you got is a pop-up message full of japanese text. If you pay a little more attention, you can spot, inside that asian cryptongram, the word PlayStation Store. That’s a hint…yes, you have to download some extra stuff from there. Easy? Yes, kinda…we’re obviously talking about the Japanese PlayStation Store.

First of all you need a Japanese PSN account to access the Japanese Store. How to create it? Follow this very helpful Kotaku guide, but make sure to stop once completed Part 1, because you won’t need any money, everything you’re gonna download is for free!

Now that you have a Japanese PSN account just open the store, use the search option (yes, that magnifying glass on the top left of the page) and type this: ジョジョ (yes, just use the japanese keyboard of your ps3 to reproduce this text).

If you typed everything right, you should now be on the results screen, with all the JoJo stuff you’ll need.

You are looking to download the campaign mode, that should have the image of the character Kira. Even if you can’t find it (or has been changed), just download everything that is free (so everything that has no price or not says PV). This is probably gonna download even some recent free DLCs with more characters. Nice right?

While with the Japanese PSN account also remember to redeem the code you found inside the game box.

Ok now you should have downloaded everything (and even more). Just log with your usual account (European, American or whatever) and start to install all the extra content queueing in your game section.

All installed. launch the game and kick some asses online!

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

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].”
