More JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle Info released

If things hold true then we can expect a lot of expressions like these

In an interview with Famitsu, CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Maruyama released info on the next upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle game. Maruyama stated that the game is not going to be a fighting game but is in fact going to be a “Jojo” game. And because of this aim, the game is going to run a 30FPS instead of the usual 60FPS. The team, Maruyama says, are ultimate Jojo fans and felt that with the game running at 30FPS, it’s easier for them to portray the famous expressions that the series’ characters are known for. Finally Maruyama states that the games roster will be bigger than what people would expect. So how do you feel about the choice of making the game go 30FPS instead of 60FPS? Will there be a significant difference for the better or good? Let me see your comments.

Namco Countdown Reveals Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle

Remember that countdown Namco teased earlier this week? Well after counting 0 Days, the curtains have finally lifted on a new Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure game, entitled Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle. I’m not very familiar with the series, but I do know of the mechanics of the fighting games. To those looking at Persona 4 Arena, that game’s Persona mechanics are very much inspired by the Jojo games. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure started as a manga, but gained exposure in the west from its fighting games on the Playstation and Dreamcast, which Capcom published. After that, not many Jojo games were made, not did they come to the West. Bandai managed to release a new game in 2006, but that too never made it stateside. And now Namco Bandai’s making a new game in the series.

From the looks of it, it’ll be taking some cues from the previous game, Phantom Blood, but sticking much closer to traditional fighting mechanics. If you’re looking at the trailer on the website and thinking, “Man, that looks like Street Fighter IV,” Well, that’s because CyberConnect2 is handling development. The characters have those visible brushstroke lines on them, similar to the characters in SFIV and STxT. I’m skeptical on this game’s Western release. But hey, the series’ got a cult following, and the gamplay looks pretty wacky and just up my alley for me.

So far the game is slated to release exclusively on the PS3. No release date is set.
