Namco Bandai has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming fighting game, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven. The video shows off seven characters from the popular anime and manga series of the same name that the game is based off. Also seen is the main mechanic in developer CyberConnect2’s latest effort, which is 2 on 2 battles.
The ‘Battle Tendency’ trailer for the PlayStation 4 exclusive also reconfirms that the fighting game will release in Summer 2016 in North America. While an exact date isn’t known, it’s likely that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven will hit in the late summer, as it was previously targeted for a Quarter 3 release date.
Seen in the two minute video (which you can watch above) are seven characters from the anime and manga’s second story arc. The playable characters include the protagonist Joseph Joestar, ripple user Caesar Anthonio Zeppeli, Caesar’s teacher Lisa Lisa, Nazi commander Rudol Von Stroheim, and three of The Pillar Men.
That’s a lot of characters (and eccentric ones at that), but this trailer only focuses on the game’s second chapter. There are eight chapters overall with each one starring a member of the Joestar family from throughout history. With over 50 playable characters in total, there’s plenty more to see in the full package.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven will release exclusively on PlayStation 4 in Summer 2016.
