Namco Bandai Games began streaming the fourth promotional video for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, the new fighting game inspired by Hirohiko Araki's manga, on Monday. The five-minute video begins with a preview of some of the "dream" battles possible in this game, such as "father vs. daughter" (Jōtarō Kujo vs Jolyne Kujo), "gangster vs. delinquent" (Giorno Giovanna vs. Okuyasu Nijimura), and "avenger vs. avenger" (Hermes Costello vs. Jean Pierre Polnaref).
The video then shows some more bouts that the game recreates, such as Jonathan Joestar vs. Will A. Zeppeli, Johnny Joestar vs. Gyro Zeppeli, and Part 8's Josuke Higashikata vs. Part 4's Josuke Higashikata.
The game is scheduled for August 29, and the first copies of the limited and regular editions will both include a Hayato Kawajiri memo pad and a download code for the Yoshikage Kira character. There will also be a limited-number "Gold Experience Box" containing a gold art plate with an etching of Giorno Giovanna and Gold Experience by Araki in an acrylic case, a figure of Jōtarō Kujo and Star Platinum (that can be displayed with an August prize figure of Dio), and a soundtrack CD.
The regular edition will cost 7,980 yen (about US$85), while the limited-edition "Gold Experience Box" will cost 16,980 yen (about US$182). CyberConnect2 is developing the game for the PlayStation 3 console.
