Di molto! It was announced today through Japan’s V-Jump Magazine that there’s a new “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” game on its way and goes by the name “Eyes Of Heaven”.
Labelled a “follow up” to the PlayStation 3 fighting game “All-Star Battle”, “Eyes Of Heaven” is set for a release on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and will feature a character roster similar to the original game but with some extra additions, two of which have already been revealed: The partial dinosaur Diego Brando (“Steel Ball Run”) and the worlds least-hated Nazi soldier Rudol Von Stroheim (“Battle Tendency”), though if this game is anything like “All-Star Battle”…those names will probably be changed by the time it gets localised.
Diego will be voiced by Takehito Koyasu and Stroheim will be voiced by Atsushi Imaruoka, but as far as information on the new game comes…that’s about all of it. There is a new battle mechanic called the “Dual Heat Attack” which leads me to believe we’ll be able to perform combination techniques of some calibre but that’s yet to be officially detailed so for now it’s just a piece of speculation I’m very confident in.
Jump Festa is just around the corner and will feature a playable demo of the upcoming game so one would assume a great deal more information regarding it will be released once people have had a hands-on chance with it. Until then, you’ll just have to make do with the magazine scan from V-Jump announcing the new title which has been translated courtesy of ShonenGamez.
