Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R announced for PS5 & PS4

You thought it was another anime game, but it was me, Dio!


One of the world's most popular anime franchises is coming to PlayStation. Wednesday's State of Play presentation saw a new trailer for a new anime fighter, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R. For those who have followed the anime's long-running story, brace yourselves because it looks like everybody is here!

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is being developed by the anime adaptation specialist at CyberConnect2, which most recently put together Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles. This fighting game will feature a massive roster of 50 characters, all from different story arcs and all with their original Japanese voice actors. This includes Jonathan Joestar, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, and everybody's favorite scumbag, Dio. Plus, they'll all be drawn out to resemble the original art style of series creator Hirohiko Araki.

Expect to see a revamped fighting system that allows for new combos, as well as mechanics like hit stops and a Support Attack tag system. The game will feature five different gameplay modes, including an All-Star Battle Mode that will take players on a whirlwind tour throughout the JoJo-verse. While the game is promising a robust single-player element, All Star Battle R will also support local and online multiplayer, as well as ample opportunity to find collectible skins from throughout JoJo's entire run on the anime airwaves.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is coming early fall 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, which should give you plenty of time to catch up on every episode of the anime in preparation. Plus, according to the Bandai Namco website, the game will also do battle on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. We have a lot more to recap from Wednesday's presentation, so be sure to check our State of Play topic for the latest updates.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
