Add another anime to the list of ones that I’ve never heard of. Today, Capcom sent out an official announcement (with screenshots) of the upcoming game JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. This 2d fighter is based off of the anime series with the same name. The game was apparently released on the Dreamcast 8 years ago and has been remade into an HD Xbox Live/PSN release.
The games online matchmaking will utilize the same type of system as Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel Vs Capcom 3. You will earn battle points for individual characters and player points for yourself through your fights. These points will be utilized to help increase player skill and move up through the leader boards.
The cool new online feature will allow an 8 player multiplayer lobby allowing players to host fights with two players and the other 6 watching. Then, if you win, the loser is left to watch and the next player joins in. You will also be able to record and share fights to gloat or have yourself laughed at. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver will be released on Aug 21st through PSN for $19.99 and Aug 22nd on Xbox Live for 1600 MSP. Screen shots are after the break. Continue reading
