Oh, also. A Jojo Bizarre adventures game by Yoko Taro.
All these Jojo games seem to go for a fighters which I guess makes sense as the show/manga is mostly about a variety of characters fighting each other. But IMO the fighting genre can't really do the show/manga justice because a lot of the more fun fights and abilities aren't just about who hits harder or who is better in straight up 1vs1 fight.
There's people who make illusions, or attacks that only work under specific conditions like "anyone moving to a lower position", or stuff like being able to make everyone around you grow old and weak or steal souls but only if the person in question loses a bet, etc.
Yoko Taro is great at taking advantage of gaming as a genre to do unique things with both the gameplay and storytelling, so I bet he'd be great at making every stand and every fight feel unique. Imagine if he was allowed to make a unique non canon part that only exists in videogame format, working together with Araki to create stands and abilities designed to be beaten in unique ways
I also want a good JoJo game. But Yoko Taro can't make a game for shit. His characters shine but usually everything else falls short. The stories and themes are also no bueno. Automata was only as good as it was because of Platinum. All of his games have a terrible shmup sections as well that are far too easy. The best JoJo game to date is still the CPS3 fighter sadly. You'd figure we would have gotten a Arcsys fighter by now. But they are currently fucking up GBF :/
I cannot imagine that a vibe of the show could be converted effectively into a video game.
Have you played any of six official games (4 based on the show and 2 based on the movie)?
If yes, have they been good for you?
Anime All-stars Game (not just Shonen Jump characters) by Arc System Works (Fighting game)
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure by Arc System Works (Fighting game)
They Live by CD Projekt Red (First person shooter)
Evil Dead by Tango Gameworks (Third person shooter)
Agent Venom by Platinumgames (Action game)
Battle Angel Alita by Platinumgames (Action game)
Zone of the Enders 3 by Platinumgames (Action game)
I'm surprised nobody has tried doing Terminator FPS lately.
- Give to Activision, since their games are smooth and play crisply
- SP and MP
- Rebels vs. Rebels (up to 32 vs 32), Rebels vs. Terminators (32 vs. 4 or 6 OP robots/vehicles), Terminators vs. Terminators modes (8 vs. 8 no health regen as robots have tons of health)
- Different kinds of Terminators. The more powerful ones chosen means that side gets less robots on the team
- Day and night maps. Rebels have night vision goggles. Terminators use different modes like heat sensor or that red colour mode
- Rebels have crude vehicles like shitty jeeps with guns, or jets. Terminators have hunter killers on ground and air
- Maps have rebels have hidden base, Robots have a Skynet kind of hub
- Rebels can capture and reprogram Terminators and use them against enemy
- Rebels have guard dogs
- Rebels can set traps
Basically make a MP game based off those future scenes in the movies.
Made by Rocksteady, in the style of Arkham Asylum, with a stronger emphasis on platforming and puzzle solving over combat (because Paperinik is not that great at fighting)
Made by Platinum Games with a combination of cartoony fast paced fighting and platformy exploration. An alternative would be made by the Warriors team, because Asterix also lends itself well to Musou.
My other favourite media franchise, Star Trek, does not lend itself well to any genre I like, other than visual novel and I do not know a competent western visual novel maker. A Japanese Star Trek VN could be a bit strange.
I want a beat'em up just like SF3 based on characters in Stanley Kubrick films. Get a time machine and Capcom could make it in 1999. Jack D Ripper from Strangelove, Moonwatcher the appe from 2001, some droogs obviously, Barry Lyndon, Jack from The Shining, Joker from Full Metal Jacket and the Red Monk from EWS. In an alternate universe this is a thing.
He-Man by Platinum (Bayonetta-like team and budget)
Ghost in the Shell by Sony Japan
Spiderman 2 by Imsoniac
Marvel vs Capcom 4 by ARC System Works+Capcom (50+ characters at launch including all the mutants)
Blade Runner by Ubisoft
I have 2 ironically both iron clad grip Konami ip's.
First up Castlevania done by From Software. an actually good 3D game. Dark souls was very castlevania-esque with the connected world and differing paths.
Second would be Metal Gear Solid by tango gameworks they have third person stealth down and global atmosphere, also wacky stories and scenerios I think they could create something original for the franchise or even a continuation after snake. yes yes I know kojima and kojipro were masterclass, But I think if anyone had the talent to step up with a nice budget it would be Tango. (bluepoint for remakes of mg1,2, and mgs1/vr clearly).
Sadly we dont know if they would outsource they have outsourced to other forms of media and some collections but not the main 3 franchises.
