The release of Namco Bandai Games and developer CyberConnect2’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle has been dated. According to this week’s issue of Jump magazine, the PS3 and X360 3D fighting game will be released in Japan on August 29 this year.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: ASB will come in regular and limited editions. The regular edition will be sold in Japan for 7,980 yen including tax, while the limited edition is priced at 16,980 yen, which is more than twice the admission price to the standard version, but not exactly something fans would likely scoff at – especially given what you’re getting in the limited edition box.
The text in the scan we have is a little too scrambled for me to make out all of the details, so I’ll have to furnish the full details later, but at the very least you’re getting:
- A sculpted figure of Jotaro Kujo from Part 3
- A gold plate featuring an illustration drawn by JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure author Hirohiko Araki
- Soundtrack disc
- (And a few other objects)
Apart from the price and release date announcements, Jump magazine’s feature on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: ASB also reveals that Part 8: Jojolion’s protagonist, Josuke Higashikata, will also be included in the game as a playable fighter (the headline for the feature reads “All-Star BattLion”… har har, very charming, Shueisha).
In combat Josuke wields the stand Soft & Wet.
