Bandai Namco Entertainment plans to release the game in Japan this year.

Hiroshi Matsuyama returns as director at CyberConnect2, Kenei Nakasha is designing the game, and Chikayo Fukuda is composing the music. Bandai Namco Entertainment made changes to the game to increase its quality based on feedback from those who played the demo that the company released last December. Changes include a "Dual Combo" where players can use an assist character to unleash a combo attack, and improvements to the gauges and battle tempo.

The JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle PS3 fighting game arrived in Japan in 2013 and later arrived in the United States in April 2014. CyberConnect2 developed the game for Namco Bandai Games, with Hiroshi Matsuyama directing. The fighting game featured characters from all eight parts of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series.
