JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R announced, coming to Switch
Bandai Namco has just announced JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle R, a fighting game based on the popular franchise. It will release on Switch in early fall.
Technically what we have here isn’t brand new. The nearly decade-old game first debuted on PlayStation 3 back in 2013 in Japan, followed by the west a year later. CyberConnect 2 developed the project.
Bandai Namco says that the design has been overhauled “with adjustments to the fighting tempo and the addition of hit stops and jump dashes.” There are also new audio recordings from the anime voice actors as well as updated graphics.
Here’s some additional information:
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R captures the passionate character expressions that are vintage JoJo, allowing you to experience the JoJo universe with powerful imagery as if Hirohiko Araki’s manga had come to life.
Freely move the characters created by Hirohiko Araki with your own hands, and feel as if you’re inside the manga where graphics and text meet to invoke the characteristic “ゴゴゴゴゴ“.
Jonathan Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, DIO, Jolyne Cujoh, and many more characters from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure gather across multiple generations!
With 50 playable characters from all arcs, you can experience popular battles from each story, and see characters from different universes interact for the first time!
The game design of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R has been overhauled from the original JOJO battle system with adjustments to the fighting tempo and the addition of hit stops and jump dashes.
With new audio recordings from the anime voice actors as well as updated graphics to suit the anime’s art style, the full atmosphere of the animated series is realized!
