JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven features a brand new original story approved by Hirohiko Araki, the creator of the original manga series.
“Bandai Namco Entertainment is home to an illustrious roster of fighting games and we’re proud to work with CyberConnect2 to bring the next JoJo’s fighting game to fans. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of the most influential manga of all time, touching everything from comics, video games, television and movies.

Utilizing a unique two versus two style of gameplay, players will be able to choose from over 50 characters, each with their signature attacks. Characters are divided into specialized fighting styles, giving hints to the type of attacks characters may use along with specific strategies players must employ when in the midst of battle.
Styles can include summoning a spirit to fight alongside the player’s character, harnessing energy to perform powerful attacks, fighting on horseback and more. Players with an understanding of how each character operates will be able to tactically fight alongside their partner as they lay waste to their opponents. This is especially critical in the game’s four-player mode that enables two teams to battle each other in online multiplayer matches where communication and teamwork will be a key factor to achieve victory.
