Bandai Namco Entertainment uploaded a new trailer today highlighting the gameplay and different modes in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R. The trailer is narrated by Rohan Kishibe (Takahiro Sakurai) and Koichi Hirose (Yuki Kaji) from the fourth part of the series, Diamond is Unbreakable.
All-Star Battle mode features dream match-ups with unique interactions such as F.F. vs Kars. By finishing certain missions such as “Complete all panels in Phantom Blood”, the player will unlock costumes, special illustrations, and BGM.
Versus mode now has the option to choose either 1 vs 1 battles or 3 vs 3 team battles. There is also a Tournament mode with up to 8 players.
The Arcade mode now has “Challenge Battle” where you can challenge 8 consecutive battles or “Endless Battle” where you can fight as long as your energy lasts.
After the feedback received from players who filled out the survey for the Early Access Demo, Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2 have made adjustments to certain features.
Frequency of Taunt and Effect while Opponent is Down
- Changed the frequency of Taunt to once per match (Opponent’s HH gauge can be reduced only once per match).
- When the Taunt is activated, the reduction of the opponent HH gauge is changed from 0.1 gauge to 1 gauge.
Frequency of Assist Attack
- Changed Assault Assists (attack) and Reversal Assists (defense) to be separate. They have individual uses with a certain number of uses per round.
Add new function for Practice Mode
- Planning to add a function to record opponent’s movements and make it able to retry specific character positions.
