IRVINE, Calif., (March 9, 2022) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R™, the stylistic anime-based fighting game with a massive and memorable roster of characters, is coming to PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in fall 2022. Developed by CyberConnect2 Co., JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R immerses players in an authentic video game adaptation that stays true to creator Hirohiko Araki’s captivating art style and stars the anime series’ original Japanese VO actors.
First introduced in 1987 and adapted to anime in 2012, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is best known for its charismatic heroes who drop unforgettable catchphrases and perform over-the-top moves as they pummel each other using martial arts and supernatural skills. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is the biggest game ever in the franchise, bringing together 50 characters from every story arc. Players can experience popular battles from each story and see heroes from different universes interact for the first time, playing as Jonathan Joestar, DIO, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, daughter of Jotaro and the first-ever female JoJo in the series, and many more.
“What sets apart JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R from other fighting games is Araki’s signature art style where fan favorite characters, story, and setting converge in outrageously fun and fast-paced battles,” said Ryan Wagner, Associate Brand Manager at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is the ultimate treat for JoJo fans, and the title will also appeal to fighting game fans with its robust roster of fighters, each with their own special moves, a range of customization options, and six different game modes for everyone from beginners to fighting game veterans.”
