A new gameplay video has been released for Namco Bandai Games' JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle PlayStation 3 video game. The gameplay video features two battles: Bruno Bucciarati vs. Jōsuke Higashikata, and Jonathan Joestar vs. Dio.
The 30th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump is also announcing on Monday that the game will include the following non-playable characters: Melone, Daniel J. D'Arby (the older D'Arby brother), Enborio, and Speedwagon.
Namco Bandai Games is also hosting a tournament for the game, and 26 participants were chosen via lottery on Wednesday. The company also held a popularity contest for which characters will be exempted from the preliminary rounds but will be used for the finals, and after tallying 72,135 votes, the three characters chosen were Jonathan Joestar, Dio, and Jōsuke Higashikata. The tournament will be held on July 3, July 10, and July 17.
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).
