That's what this countdown was about.

Developed by CyberConnect2 (people behind Asura's Wrath and the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series) and produced by Namco Bandai, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure ASB is a PS3 exclusive and will be out in Japan this year. This is the official website.

"Every main character from Part 1 through 8 of the series will be playable. The game format is a battle between the various main characters. Hence all star battle." — Source

Also, this page is about how a new Jojo's Bizarre Adventure anime will also be coming out this year.

I'm all about this, though I do have a question. If every main character will be playable, does that mean it only has 8 characters? No antagonists?

Sick.

@smokeyd123: There were antagonists in the trailer, and Dio was shown right at the end.

I've read up to part 5 in the manga a few years ago so I'm somewhat familiar with a lot of the characters. Who knows, this could be cool.

obviously this purchase will be decided upon the presence of ROAD ROLLA DA

ZA WARDO!

Yes. I'm just super sad that it seems PS3 only and my PS3 is dead. :(

And yeah, Dio at the end pretty much confirms antagonists too.

Yare yare daze, I did not expect that teaser to reveal a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure game! I have only read up to part 4, so I don't know all of the folks there, but I am excited to see more of this game. It has been a long time since the last Jojo's Bizarre Adventure anime. It's even been a while since that Phantom Blood movie. I am very excited on both counts.

You can't have a Jojo fighter without Dio Brando.

WRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As long as it retains the trademark insanity of the old game, I'm fucking pumped!

Also yeah if there's no Dio Brando what's the point? I also want Polnareff cause I got real good with him.

It just occurred to me that CC2 isn't working with Capcom on this, but that looks ALOT like MT Framework, does Capcom license that to people outside of their company and their projects?

That looks more like Asura's Wrath engine than MT Framework.

Asura's Wrath used UE3, is this going to be a cover-based fighter?

...Mortal Kombat?

In any case, I heavily doubt that this is MT Framework.

:O

never saw this coming.

#17 Posted by Soren (274 posts) -

oh man

this is amazing

#18 Posted by GaspoweR (3489 posts) -

Its the Unreal engine. Asura's Wrath used it as well so I'm assuming that's what they are using for this one.

#19 Posted by dungbootle (2428 posts) -

So hyped

#20 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3085 posts) -

What the dick is this?

#21 Posted by xyzygy (10078 posts) -

Never heard of this franchise before, but the game looks cool. I wonder if they'll bring it to NA? I have never even heard of this before, I wonder if bringing this over will be worth it for Bamco.

#22 Posted by Alkaiser (366 posts) -

I was not expecting this. This is the best news. God, I hope they bring this to America.

#23 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Looks decent, I guess. I'm more excited about Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 as it is right now.

The achievements came so it's true. Now it's just a matter of when.

So Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: ASB is not a fighting game, it's a Jojo game. Sacrificing the competitive nature that this game could have had by making it 30 FPS instead of 60, for example, CC2 will be able to give the game the visual fidelity that they feel a Jojo Bizarre Adventure game needs to have. I don't doubt they'll achieve that given their past games, but this might be disappointing news for some.
