Rumor Mill: Did We Get Confirmation on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle in US?
It seems that the gap of games that stay in Japan is slowly diminishing. As reported a few months ago, CyberConnect2 (Guys behind Naruto Ultimate Ninja series and Asura's Wrath) were working on their newest fighting game based off the manga, "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure". When it was first announced however, it was said that it would only be released in Japan, with little chance of it being released worldwide.
Recently, it was discovered by Siliconera that the publisher had filed a trademark for "All Star Battle" in the U.S. for use with video games. Keep in mind that Siliconera did a similar story with another popular manga, One Piece in regards of "One Piece: Pirate Musou" (or One Piece: Pirate Warriors) and how it "may come overseas." They had published their own rumor article at the end of last year, and it wasn't until the around April when we got to see confirmation. This could mean, that we could be seeing another game make it across the ocean and into our hands.
Personally, I hope it is true, since Cyberconnect has done some great works with the .hack series and the previously mentioned Naruto Ultimate Ninja series, that it would be a shame if we didn't see this one too. Will we get to see this game in the US? and more importantly, will we get to see this?
yeah... I know I posted this in the last "Jojo's" article, but I love how just over the top this move is.
