JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R Coming September 2

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R now has a release date. After the game’s announcement last March, Bandai Namco said we wouldn’t have to wait too long for the All-Star Battle sequel, and now we know just how long. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R arrives on September 1, 2020, for PC users and September 2 for console players.

In addition to the release date, we’ve also got a brand-new trailer that showcases some new characters being added to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R’s roster. Starting with the Phantom Blood arc, Robert E. O. Speedwagon joins the fray as the first playable character after being just a narrator in 2013’s JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle.

Next are two Stand users from Stardust Crusaders, including Mariah and Pet Shop. Mariah’s stand, Bastet, allows her to magnetize any object, while Pet Shop’s stand, Horus, is an icy skeletal vulture that can freeze and fire ice shards at his enemies. Although somewhat minor villains during the Stardust Crusaders arc, it looks like their powers are being boosted for the coming fighting game.

Diego Brando from Steel Ball Run also makes his first appearance. His Stand allows him to turn into an Utahraptor to unleash teeth and claws on his foes. All four newcomers join a cast that includes the likes of Dio, all the Joestars, and Jolyne Cujoh, the daughter of Jotaro, as well as several more that are likely to be announced in the coming months.

Pre-orders for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R are available with the game coming in three versions. The Standard Edition is priced at $49.99 and includes the base game, while the Digital Deluxe version comes in at $69.99 and includes new costume colors for several characters as well as the Season Pass, which will include four new characters (and two-day early access to said characters before they arrive) and two exclusive costumes. The Collector's Bundle, priced at $99.99, includes all of the above plus a statue of Jolyne Cujoh.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R arrives on September 1 for PC via Steam and on September 2 for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
