I haven't touched Part 1's story mode yet... please tell me it's not 8 chapters long
Part 1 is probably the shortest at 4 chapters. I assume Part 6, 7, & 8 will be rather short as well due to the few characters included.

*checks guide* Holy crap, Stone Ocean is only 3 chapters long? Damn. Guess that's the shortest.

Just bought Jojo recently and I'm enjoying it so far.

But, does anyone know why in these anime game releases such as Naruto, One Piece and now Jojo...why don't the anime soundtrack be used in any of the games?

I was really looking forward to "Sono Chi No Sadame" blasting at some point during Chapter 1 and some of the battle music.

I really felt like games like OP and Naruto felt off without the music you would hear through the actual episodes.

Just wondering.

Some of those games are anime adaptation and others manga adaptations. JJASB is a manga adaptation so anything particular to the anime is off-limits.

Licensing, Bandai Namco and David Production have access to the Jojo franchise but not necessarily each other's works based off of it. Otherwise, I'd set Bloody Stream for everything.

You and I, we can be friends.

I'm not sure if I can justify this at the $50 without a stick, since the demo felt like it really needed one to combo. Anyone having sucess with a controller?

Cheers guys, thought as much, but you can even see some of the 3D models from the game being used in the intro, so I thought there would be some cross use of assets and licenses.

When the first series came out, I thought it was a lot of effort for them to create 3D models just for the intro, but obviously, ASB was announced later on.

is there a fighting game forum for this anywhere, or is it too casual? only thing i can find is a video on shoryuken for the system mechanics and it was made when the original japanese version released.

I got a friend bringing this over tonight and i feel like i need to study up a bit.

Well, there's this OT. We could probably answer any question you have.

I've been using a controller instead of my fightstick because I can't take the game seriously enough to use it. It's alright. Maybe when I really dive into training mode, I'll switch to stick.

I guess I should unlock characters from there then.

Yeah Vento Aureo and Stone Ocean are the shortest at 3 chapters each.
Part 5 is short despite having many characters? Whoa!

So I guess I'm still confused about some basic stuff.

With stands, the mechanic video says you can detach stands from localised control with S, but I can't seem to pull it off consistently if at all.

I also don't understand what governs whether normals can cancel into specials - seems like using, for instances, Jonathan, his H kick doesn't consistently cancel into overdrive or oraoraora or whatever. I can't tell if I'm just failing at execution cos I'm on pad though.

Basically I need help cancelling stuff, really...

The stand cancelling seems to only work with certain moves. When I was using Valentine I noticed that I can't stand cancel when I do QCF ATK, but I can when I do QCB ATK.

I've used Jonathan a lot and I don't recall having issues going from his H kick to his supers. You may just be messing up the execution.

Problem is that most of them are good guys and they almost never fight each other, so...
Yeah, like Narancia only battled against the guy who could shrink himself, and the team who could move through water/make people lie. Not really fighting game material.

He also 'accidentally' killed Risotto, who I actually think would've been a cool character since he was technically the secondary villain (although in the end he was on Giorno's side sort of)

So how's everyone doing online? Wanna try doing a GAF lobby sometime? I don't even know if there are lobbies in this game...

I'm still rocking Rohan/Kakyoin/Gappy and only bring out Joseph for emergencies. Rohan's movelock is a blast until they actually figure it out.

Also I haven't played anyone with a 3 bar connection yet :(

There are no lobbies. It sucks. Sucks so much.

Namco has confirmed the DLC character schedule:

May 13th: Old Joseph Joestar, Lisa Lisa, & Baoh
May 20th: Fugo, Anasui/Anastasia, & Cool/Vanilla Ice
May 27th: Iggy

No word on Shigekyo or Kira's date. Maybe they'll be released with Iggy since the previous weeks are in 3s.

Edit: Anyone know the timing for when I connect "Meet my homing missile!" with Josuke's HHA? Just says "when it hits".....oh, I never had enough meter, that's why....err, no, I still can't figure out the timing....Though mashing the Square/Light button seems to work.

That's quite the different schedule from the original release, I wonder why they're doing it like this rather than in the same order as japan

Bad news: the game wasn't delivered while I was out today, meaning I won't have it until tomorrow at the very earliest.

Good news: THIS magnificent sunnuvagun was waiting for me instead!

Ahhhh SAS. One day I'll get killer queen for a reasonable price.

Wrong Dio! The demo has Dio Brando, while the one that uses the steamroller is DIO. DIO-SAMA, BIG DIO ON CAMPUS, and DEEEEE OOOHHHH are also names he uses.

What about EU's date? No DLC?

I am asking because Asia edition uses EU stuff
I think EU's dates are the day after, as on the fight-with-style.com site, it's mentioned to be the 14th, 21st, & 28th if you select the DLC characters. I assume since the US updates on Tuesdays, we'll get them the day before.

& Jojolion's story finished, along with the platinum trophy. Least that didn't have any secret missions, though I gotta get those finished starting with Battle Tendency.

lol i got this:



sounds fitting.

edit: i tried my other forum nickname and this was the result:



sounds a lot like the abilities of the characters that inspired the nickname.
"Kenny's stand is Anal Love, capable of destroying the past! Rank: EX"

I... don't know how to respond...
