JoJos Digital Adventures

The Joestar dynasty from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure by Hirohiko Araki are arguably best known in the west through their video game exploits. Perhaps the most memorable was released on Dreamcast and the original PlayStation in 2000. Developed by Capcom and designed alongside the Street Fighter III series, the game drew from the same manga story-arc that introduced Stands, providing two layers of combat for players as they switched between using 'regular' characters and their ghostly assistants. Curiously, the original arcade iteration of the game was shopped internationally under the title JoJo's Venture, which sounds less like an exciting fighting game and more like a business sim. It wasn't the first game though - the Japanese Super Famicom saw a JoJo RPG in 1993; two subsequent fighting games appeared on the PS2, in 2002 and 2006; and the arcade game was ported to Xbox 360 and PS3 this year. Best of all, a new brawler, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is due for release on PS3 next year, developed by Naruto: Ultimate Ninja maestros CyberConnect2!
