If you’re looking to pick up this remaster, you can do so in one of two ways. The standard edition (game only) comes in as a physical release, while the deluxe edition is digital only, but also includes the season pass with four DLC characters, an “Animation Special Event Color Set,” and two exclusive costumes plus early character access.
The original All-Star Battle closed out its content support with a 41-character roster after DLC that pulled from all eight parts of the manga was added. All-Star Battle R boasts a 50-character roster, bringing 9 new contenders into battle with the remaster.
Robert E. O. Speedwagon hails from Part 1 (Phantom Blood) of the manga, Mariah and Pet Shop represent Part 3 (Stardust Crusaders), and Diego Brando made his way into the series in Part 7 (Steel Ball Run). Based on what we see in the trailer, each fighter will bring an interesting and unique playstyle into the fold, with the most peculiar being Pet Shop who is quite literally a falcon who shoots large icicles from its mouth.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R features 50 playable characters from every story arc, and the upcoming demo will offer up a sample of online PvP and practice modes.
