A Golden Wind is set to howl across the Jump Force battlefield when JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s Giorno Giovanna, the progeny of DIO by way of Jonathan Joestar’s body, joins the game’s playable roster this spring. Opponents who come face-to-face with Giorno’s seemingly invincible Gold Experience Requiem Stand are forever reminded that their attacks are simply useless.
Giorno is the fifth and final member of Jump Force “Characters Pass 2,” which also features the currently available Shoto Todoroki, Meruem, and Hiei, and the upcoming Yoruichi. Players who purchase Character Pass 2 for $17.99 will immediately obtain Todoroki, Meruem, and Hiei, as well as gain early access to Yoruichi and Giorno upon release. Each character is also available separately for $3.99.
Giorno is a teenage boy of average height and slim yet muscular build, far smaller in stature than previous JoJos. He has golden hair of moderate length tied back in a short, braided tail, with three distinctive oversized curls arranged in a row over his forehead. His hair was originally black and unkempt but transformed upon awakening his Stand. His eyes, especially present in earlier depictions, sharpen at the ends similar to those of his father’s.
Giorno wears a two-piece suit with a checkered coat tail and several ornate features, including wing-shaped emblems on the collars and a heart-shaped opening in the chest area. The most distinctive feature on his suit are the three ladybug emblems located on either side of his chest and directly below his zipper, matching the appearance of his Stand. Later on, his shoes also have the same ladybug emblem on them. The color scheme for his suit often changes in different depictions, but the most common colors are blue outlined with gold and pink outlined with green.
Your end has no end! That‘s the power of Gold Experience Requiem!

Giorno’s childhood was filled with unhappiness and loneliness due to bullies and the abuse by his stepfather. During his early childhood, he was initially cold and uncaring towards anyone and believed himself to be scum just for the way people treated him. Those that knew him easily thought he’d grow up to become a twisted individual. This changed when he befriended an injured gangster he saved. As the man protected Giorno from those that did him wrong in return for his aid, he learned that he could trust people. Since then, he has become a more confident and solicitous person.
A defining characteristic of Giorno, and shared among his peers through him, is his resolve (覚悟 kakugo); something that can be described as his ability to make important decisions without hesitation and seeing them through to the very end, even in the face of pain, sorrow, and tragedy. Throughout Part 5, Giorno’s resolve is such that in the heat of battle, he is frequently willing to allow himself to be injured if it leads to an advantageous situation. An ambitious individual, he readily takes any occasion to achieve his final goal of becoming a “Gang-Star”. Upon beginning to cooperate with Passione gangster Bruno Bucciarati, Giorno wastes no time in infiltrating the gang, and steadily works his way up the ranks. His assassination of Polpo was partially a way to get a promotion for Bucciarati. Later, Giorno also tried to personally approach the Boss of Passione, and planned to plant a tracking device on him.
