JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure should have a great year for 2022, with new episodes of ocean of stone coming to Netflix this fall, and there are still plenty of stories being released in the manga world, as creator Hirohiko Araki has promised a new part of his story in the upcoming JoJo Lands. In addition to these events in the Joestars universe, a remake of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle is aiming to arrive in September and will add a number of familiar faces to the fighting game‘s already extensive roster.
All-Star Battle R will add Stone Ocean’s Foo Fighters to begin with, with the brawler currently assisting Jolyne Cujoh as she wears the skin of a deceased prisoner as a stand made up of plankton. The fighting game will also add long-haired Yukako Yamagishi, the student of Morioh who had an unstable fixation on Koichi but would eventually come to the side of light. Players will also see a new iteration of Jotaro Kujo enter the game for the first time, sporting his look from The diamond is unbreakable. In addition to these additions, a non-JoJo character will also be part of the roster for Ikuro Hashizawa, who was a character created by Hirohiko Araki in an entirely different series dubbed Baoh: the visitor.
The official Twitter account of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R shared a new trailer for the upcoming game, with several of the new fighters introduced during its runtime:
