Bandai Namco has announced that it will be releasing new characters for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R and has released a roadmap outlining future content. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle R features over 50 playable characters and a generous helping of Easter eggs to satisfy fans of Hirohiko Araki’s creativity.
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R is a fighting game released this year by Bandai Namco and developed by CyberConnect2, the same studio that is known for creating the .hack game series and several Naruto fighting games. All-Star Battle R is a remake of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, a game released in 2013 for PS3. It introduced new gameplay mechanics such as support attack, attack attack and rollback attack, as well as new playable characters. And according to a new announcement, even more playable characters will soon be added to Jojo’s big team.
Two free DLC characters will be added to the game on December 1st, with the first being Weather Report, one of Jolyne Kuju’s best allies in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. First appearing as a man with no memories, Weather Report is able to manipulate the weather and/or atmosphere with the power of his Stand. Another character will be Pucci’s father (Finale), a loyal follower of Dio Brando, able to manipulate people’s minds and souls with his Stand. Pucci will be the same as in the original All-Star Battle, where his Stand transforms into C-Moon and Made in Heaven during the battle.
Bandai Namco has also released a roadmap for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R, revealing the future content players can expect from the game. The roadmap starts with Risotto Nero, a Metallica booth user. Risotto’s appearance will be followed by the releases of Weather Report and Father Pucci in December 2022, as well as the new Kennedy Space Center level, which was removed from the original game at launch to avoid spoilers. The rest of the roadmap content is currently undisclosed.
