A cool arcade fighting game based on the JoJo characters. Also known as JoJo’s Venture.
Based on the manga’s third main story arc, Stardust Crusaders, the game follows a Japanese teenager named Jotaro Kujo, who has developed a supernatural ability known as a “Stand”. Approached by his grandfather, Joseph Joestar, Jotaro learns that this power is the result of the influence of the sworn enemy of the Joestar family, a vampire named Dio Brando. As his mother’s life is put in danger when she starts developing a Stand that she can’t control, Jotaro and Joseph go on a quest to destroy Dio so they can cure her.
The original arcade game features fourteen playable characters whilst Heritage for the Future and subsequent ports add eight additional characters, bringing the total to twenty-two. In the English versions, some characters are renamed.
