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.
More good news for all us European 3DS owners! In fact another great Japanese-only game has been announced for an European release! We’re talking about Senran Kagura: Burst, classic beat’em up from Marvelous AQL, Japanese software house, well known for Harvest Moon and Rune Factory.
The game has been announced for an American release earlier this week, but for us European the news is even better, as our American mates will only get a digital copy, downloadable through the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Unlike them, Zen United (the publisher in western countries) said that we’re gonna get the retail version of the game!
If you don’t know the game, Senran Kagura: Burst is a scroll beat’em up set in a Japanese high school, and follows a number of female students who are secretly being trained in Ninjutsu. As you can tell from the picture above and the trailer below, the main ingredient of the game is: BOOBS.
The release date is set for Q1 2014.
Crossovers are a trend nowadays, so after Project X Zone (fighting/action/RPG crossover among SEGA, Namco Bandai and Capcom) and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Stars Battle (fighting with all the characters from the eight JoJo’s series), now it’s time for J-Stars Victory VS.
The game, exclusive for PS3 and PS Vita and now only announced for a Japanese release, should be a fighting game featuring characters from four of the major Shonen Jump series. So it won’t be like Jump Ultimate Stars, but it will feature warriors only from One Piece, Naruto, DragonBall and Toriko.
The game is still in TBA release date and probably will never see the light outside Japan (mainly because of the west-unknown Toriko), but for now enjoy the trailer.
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.
