This year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday that Kōichi Hirose and antagonist Akira Otoshi from the fourth part of Hirohiko Araki's original manga will be playable characters in Namco Bandai Games' JoJo's Bizzare Adventure: All-Star Battle fighting game for the PlayStation 3. The two characters' voice actors have not yet been revealed. The scans also feature Kōichi's Stand Echoes and Akira's Stand Red Hot Chili Pepper.

Previously-revealed playable characters for the manga's fourth part include Jōsuke Higashikata (Wataru Hatano), Okuyasu Nijimura (Wataru Takagi), and Yoshikage Kira (Rikiya Koyama).

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$80), while the limited-edition "Gold Experience Box" will cost 16,980 yen (about US$170). CyberConnect2 is developing the game for the PlayStation 3 console.
