JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE RETURNS FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD

Arcade Fighting Title Confirmed for the PlayStation® Store and Xbox LIVE Arcade with HD Graphics and All New Online Features

LONDON, UK. — July 16, 2012 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. will be available to purchase on August 22nd from Xbox LIVE® Arcade for 1600 Microsoft points and from PlayStation®Network for €19.99/£15.99.

A fighting game based on the popular Japanese manga series and previously released arcade games, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. features stunning HD visuals and unique, original gameplay mechanics that can be seen today in other Capcom fighting titles. Fans of the series will still be able to enjoy the classic arcade style appearance with an option to play in Arcade SD Mode, preserving the high-quality pixel art seen in the original releases.

In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. the story centres around the powerful Joestar family, including well known hero Jotaro Kujo. Players will be able to unleash powerful super combo’s and perform special attacks with their characters by executing their supernatural powers, known as Stand’s. 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.

For the first time since the original Dreamcast™ version launched over eight years ago, the ability to play against competitors online will be revived in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. In an online matching system fans will recognise from Super Street Fighter™ IV and Marvel® vs. Capcom® 3, gamers will be able to choose their opponents based on various factors including location, skill and connection speed. Battle points can be earned for characters and player points for individual player strengths, both of which will increase your skill and push you further up the global leaderboards.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. introduces an all new multiplayer lobby system where fighters will be able to compete with up to eight players. It’s a battle of winner stays on as players fight to keep their place in the game or be forced to become a viewer as another replaces them in the battle to be champion. Gamers will also be able to share those victorious moments from their fights and learn moves from the best via the new video function that allows them to save the replay of their fight and share it with others online.

So...they ran everything through a cutout filter then a pencil filter in photoshop, and that makes it HD...Campcom sucks, and this game was never very good to begin with.

This is a damn crime. Calling this crap HD and charging $20. Capcom has sunk to a new low. I didn't think it was possible.

The way i would've liked it (without the crt curvature that is). Closer to the originals than anything that Capcom (Sega/SNK btw too) has come up yet with their pseudo HD-filters.

I must agree with those filters. Damn it! Its better in old-fashioned pixel-storm style. If its not remastered, than its ok to have some pixels.

The game will contain the "original graphics" as well. Those filters really are atrocious.

"original graphics" meaning it's just being upscaled (which btw isn't anywhere close to the original coinop's look) and that's it. Very sad.

There's nothing 'HD' about those visuals. Capcom need to invest in a dictionary.

Emulator screenshots:Can't be that hard to implement HQ3x / HQ4x / 2xSuperSAI / 2xSuperEagle-filters, Scanlines, CRT and cabinet emulation and make it OPTIONAL like most emulators do.

What did you expect? We're talking about Capcom here man ... :D
Never has a game company piloted, engineered, and mastered the art of "raping gamers and getting them to sign up for 2 or more sessions of said raping"
