Bandai Namco’s arcade game JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor is adding Jotaro Kujo from the sixth part of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series, Stone Ocean, as a playable character.
The official Last Survivor YouTube channel announced Jotaro Kujo (Stone Ocean ver.) in a live stream on November 25, 2022, during the “Solo Survivor Championship 2022”. The update that will make him playable releases on December 7, 2022.
Bandai Namco previously announced in April 2022 that a different version of an existing playable character would join the roster in December. Jotaro’s younger self from Stardust Crusaders has been in the game since it launched.
The character coming out in December is a different version of an already existing character, think of something like DIO (Greatest High version). Well… it’ll be written on the front (laugh). If I give a hint you’ll immediately know who it is, so I’ll just leave it at that for now.Kazuaki Shoji (Producer), Dengeki Online Interview – April 23, 2022
Before Part 6 Jotaro, Weather Report joined the roster on September 7, 2022.
Jotaro Kujo (Stone Ocean ver.) has the same skills as his Part 3 version. His ultimate skill is Star Platinum: The World. However, unlike his younger self, he can stop time twice per game rather than only once. It consumes a large amount of Spirit Gauge when activated. He also has a passive skill called “Keen Eye” allowing him to accurately see how much health his opponents has left.
