Get a good look at the HD upgraded visuals for the appropriately-named fighter on the way in August.
During SDCC, Capcom revealed that they were resurrecting the eight-year-old arcade and Dreamcast game based on the long-running manga.
The release will include both HD and SD visuals for the game, as well as points-based multiplayer matchmaking similar to what’s used in Super Street Fighter IV.
Here’s the official synopsis from Capcom:
In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. the story centers around the powerful Joestar family, including well known hero Jotaro Kujo. Players will be able to unleash powerful super combos and perform special attacks with their characters by executing their supernatural powers, known as Stands. Each character’s Stand appears in-game just as they did in the manga, offering another strategic layer of fighting and unique gameplay. For example, players can use Jotaro’s Stand, ‘Star Platinum’ to perform ‘Blazing Fist’ and attack enemies together with Jotaro, causing massive damage to the opponent.
Check out some screens from the game below:
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD will be available on PSN on August 21st for $19.99 and on XBLA for 1600 MSP on August 22nd.
