JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Announces All Star Battle R

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is currently partnered with Netflix to release new episodes of the sixth storyarc of its anime franchise, Stone Ocean, and while the story of the Joestars has released plenty of video games in the past, it seems that the series is set to return to one of its biggest fighting games of the past. During PlayStation’s latest State of Play, Sony announced the upcoming release of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R, a remake of a fighting game that originally arrived on the Playstation 3 in North America in 2014. Touting fifty characters, this certainly appears to be tailor-made for fans of the world of the Joestars.

2022 was already set to be a big year for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, with this month seeing the release of a new magazine that will release two new short stories featuring characters of the past, Lisa Lisa and Iggy. With Hirohiko Araki, the creator of the series, working on a new entry into the franchise via Part Nine, tentatively titled JoJo Lands, the anime franchise certainly has a bright future ahead of it, especially with its popularity continuing to grow around the world.

Sony released the new trailer for the upcoming fighting game which is set to arrive this year for Playstation 4 and Playstation 5, featuring characters from most of the eras of the Joestar family that have fought using the energy known as the Ripple and Stands:

The Official Description that Sony Playstation revealed for this upcoming fighting game remake reads as such:

“It’s a JoJo gathering! This isn’t an experience you’d want to miss. A fighting game featuring 50 characters from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, each from different arcs, is.”

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure has seen plenty of fighting games released in the past, with its first debuting on the Super Famicom in 1993, but one truly bizarre title has yet to hit the West in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor. Set up as a Battle Royale game, the entry in the series allowed players to choose from several Stand users, attempting to be the last man standing. Ironically enough, the game never received a console release and was only available in arcades.
