With the re-release, Bandai Namco and CyberConect2 Co. say the fight system has been completely revamped. Tools like hit stops and jump dashes should all change up the tempo. There are also some all-new battles to play out, and a bunch of collectible and customizable cosmetics.
All Star Battle is a deep but welcome cut into the annals of fighting game history. The JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting games have had a bit of a following in niche corners of the fighting game scene, and seeing them get a fancy new version of All Star Battle is rad.
Plus, with the recent release of Stone Ocean onto Netflix, the time seems right to kick up some JoJo’s fanfare. After watching some Stone Ocean myself, I’m interested in any fighting game with Jolyne and the crew. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is coming to PlayStation and Xbox consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC this fall.
