This year's 33rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will reveal on Saturday that three new characters will be joining the cast of Namco Bandai Games' Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle PlayStation 3 game. The characters are: Wang Chan from Part 1: Phantom Blood, Iggy from Part 3: Stardust Crusaders, and Yukako Yamagishi from Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable.
The 31st issue of Weekly Shonen Jump announced last month that Dio Brando (from the original manga's Part 1) and Enrico Pucci (from Part 6) will be joining the game as bosses.
Namco Bandai Games streamed a trailer last month that included the cast so far.
CyberConnect2 is developing the game for the PlayStation 3 console. The game will ship on 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" sets 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$80), while the limited-edition "Gold Experience Box" will cost 16,980 yen (about US$170).
