JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle Announced
Namco Bandai today announced that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle will be arriving in 2014 exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Adapted from Hirohiko Araki’s manga, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, the game takes characters spanning all eight story arcs and pits them against each other in a one-on-one fighting game.
Playable characters are divided by their Battle Style. Battle Styles will augment characters with special abilities or new moves. There are five basic Battle Styles characters can use. “Ripple” allows characters to recharge their Heart Heat Gauge, which allows characters to unleash special Heart Heat Attacks. “Mode” increases character powers but depletes their Heart Heat Gauge, “Vampirism” can drain Heart Heat Gauge from other players, “Horseback” lets characters fight on horseback, and “Stand” allows characters to summon otherworldly beings to assist in fights with their own unique move sets.
