J-Stars Victory VS+
Yes. You can get excited. It’s official. The 2v2 brawler that features an insane roster filled with Shonen Jump’s manga stars, J-Stars Victory VS+, is coming to the Americas and will be hitting PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, AND for the first time ever, PlayStation 4. Also, with the first release outside of Japan, J-Stars will have an additional “Arcade Mode” coming with it’s Western debut. Check out the teaser trailer and stay tuned for more information!
I'm legit shocked.
Not all characters from the Japanese version will be in this.
Game has been balanced and plays much better than the original release. Characters don't seem to have as many "invencible" frames after being knocked down as before.
Oh, and this won't be getting a Japanese release. Not yet, at least.
Confirmed [that the roster won't contain all the characters seen in Japan]. They don't know which will be out yet, though, so they're not talking about the roster.
I've only played like 2 hours of the original release because I thought it was awful, so I couldn't possibly notice any other balance changes from my short time with the demo.
The "invencible" frames thing could be placebo too, because it was something I noticed, not something the devs said themselves.
They specifically mentioned to not look at that poster as indicative of anything. These characters may or may not be in.
They've mentioned that there are still "many months" before the planned release date (which, officially, is just a broad "2015" for now), so they may end up resolving some of the issues.
