1st Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Fighting Game Remade in HD

posted on by Egan Loo
1998-99 game enhanced for PSN, XBox Live this August

Capcom announced during Saturday's "World of Capcom" panel at Comic-Con International that the 1998 fighting game Jojo's Bizarre Adventure will return in high definition. The HD version will arrive on the PlayStation Network (PSN) on August 21, followed by Xbox Live on August 22. The prices have not been finalized yet.

The original game was first released in arcades in 1998, followed by a Sony PlayStation console version in 1999. It was then ported to the Sega Dreamcast console.

This new HD version of the 1998 fighting game is different from CyberConnect2's recently announced JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle game for the PlayStation 3 console. All-Star Battle was announced earlier this month along with a new television anime adaptation of Hirohiko Araki's original JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.

Update: More background information added. The HD version will cost US$19.99 on PSN and 1,600 points (about US$20) on Xbox Live.
