posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The judges of the VFX-Japan Awards announced on Monday that Bandai Namco Games' JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle video game for the PlayStation 3 system has won the grand prize in the video game footage category. The VFX-Japan Awards recognize creations in live-action film, video games, commercials, animated film, TV, and events that excel in the use of CG and VFX.
Cyber Connect's Hiroshi Matsuyama commented on the award, saying, “The production staff said three years ago that they had wanted to recreate the colors of Hirohiko Araki's original manga in the game... The game was released in August 2013, and over half a year has passed, and I'm extremely happy that it is now being recognized in such a way!'
The game, which includes characters from across all eight parts of Hirohiko Araki's long-running JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga, shipped in Japan on August 29. CyberConnect2 developed the game for Bandai Namco Games, with Hiroshi Matsuyama directing.
Namco Bandai Games plans to release the game in North America, Europe, and Australasia this spring.
