One of the wackiest, most fabulous and downright outrageous Japanese fighting game is starting to make its way toward other continental areas, starting with Europe and Australia as confirmed by Namco Bandai Games. The release of JoJo Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle will not only internationally grace players with characters from all eight seasons of the original manga, but the game will also come with two new characters — Yoshikage Kira and Shigekiyo Yangu — for free if you preorder.
Based off of the original manga, the Asura’s Wrath developers at CyberConnect2 imports a lot of personality, flamboyance and art style into the PlayStation 3 only brawler. The game seems very reminiscent of the Persona series, which begs the question of whether or not there could be a mash-up fighting game between both franchises.
Namco Bandai Games nor CyberConnect2 have announced a definite North American release date other than just the notion of the fighter hitting retail some time around Spring.
Check the trailer below for some over-the-top action. Seriously, what are Japanese developers smoking over there. Whatever it is, it’s practically selling a badass fighting franchise.
