Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle

With JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE: ALL STAR BATTLE, gamers will get a chance to experience an action-fighting game following the authentic Hirohiko Araki manga!

*** This game has already reached the perfect 40/40 mark in the praised Japanese FAMITSU magazine. ***

Since its first appearance in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1987, JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE manga has sold more than 70 million copies around the world; it is also the second longest running Shueisha manga. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure counts the story of Jonathan Joestar's cursed family; the manga covers the adventures of several generations and their Nemesis; each part of the series focuses on a descendant and has its fair share of belligerents.

In order to keep this game within JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE spirit, developers included plenty of JoJo-esque features (Battle Styles, Heart Heat Gauge etc.). Fans will fight with characters coming from all of 8 JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE chapters.

Stylish and colourful battles against some of the most famous bosses such as DIO BRANDO, ENRICO PUCCI and much more await players. This new game opens the door to eye-popping fights in beautifully drawn and animated places from JOJO'S BIZZARE ADVENTURE universe!

The EMEA release of JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE: ALL-STAR BATTLE will feature a *** brand new Arcade mode not included in the original Japanese release *** as well as the balance changes featured in the current Japanese version (Patch 1.04).

The new Arcade Mode lets the player fight a series of eight AI controlled opponents in order to win gold! On rare occasions, the Arcade Mode icon will switch to Harvest when connected online. During the Harvest, players will be able to win even more gold from playing the Arcade Mode. Players can spend gold for hints and single-use items to help them out in the midst of battle!

Earning gold can be done in multiple ways; one of them is the Arcade Mode, the other way is the Campaign Mode! Following the players' feedbacks, Namco Bandai Games and CyberConnect2 decided to lower the Campaign Energy Recovery timings to 2 minutes in order to enhance its fans' gaming pleasure!

While taking a break from the Arcade Mode and the Campaign Mode, fighters from Asia, North America and Europe can" go into combat in the same online realm!

Chapter 6: Stone Ocean - Florida - It all starts when Jotaro Kujo's daughter, Jolyne Cujoh, gets caught and jailed for a murder... During her time in Green Dolphin Street Prison, JoJo uses an amulet she inherited from her father and unleashes her Stand
Following this major event, she joins forces with Ermes Costello, Guess and F.F in order to defeat Dio's disciples. Dio's evil schemes never ceased as Jongalli A and Pucci are here to take down the Joestar descendants...
