JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Overview: Character profiles pt. 2

Dubindoh has posted the third and final part on the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure overview on Capcom-Unity.

Like last time he goes over the game's remaining characters, giving short explanation of the character and what they can do. Hit the jump to see a few more.


Iced

Iced has a very powerful Active Stand called Cream. Iced is definitely a weird character to play as; his movement speed alternates depending on whether his Stand is on or off. Add that to the fact that his normal moves are almost entirely exclusive to having the Stand on or off, and it feels like you’re playing two different characters at once. His most useful tools are his Dark Space, which you can switch direction in the follow up, and his Devastation, which is also an attack with a very wide hitbox.


D'Bo

D’Bo wields an Active Stand called Ebony Devil. Like Iced, D’Bo too feels like playing two characters at once. The main difference is that Iced keeps switching its form while D’Bo has the two characters on the screen at all times! This is not necessarily great news since D’Bo remains vulnerable as long as you control his Stand and even when you perform some special moves like his Dummy Hunter and the Dummy Cutter.

Updated: EVO staff backtracks on Street Fighter X Tekken's removal from 2013 lineup

Updated: The official Evolution Twitter account was updated with a new message saying that the games for Evolution 2013 are still being decided on. It reads: "Contrary to what you might have heard, the roster for Evo 2013 is still very much undecided. Play the games you love!"

The thread where MrWizard stated that Street Fighter X Tekken wouldn't be in the lineup was also recently removed from the Shoryuken forums.

Earlier, in a rare moment of prohibition, long before any EVO 2013 games have officially been announced, MrWizard (one of the lead organizers for the Evolution tournament series) stepped onto the SRK forums to ensure there wouldn't be any confusion regarding the inclusion or exclusion of Street Fighter X Tekken.

The thread in question was a speculation topic about EVO 2013's game lineup and arguments were going on before Wizard stepped in.

Capcom will continue ongoing support for Street Fighter X Tekken, still no plans for a no gem mode

Capcom will continue ongoing support for Street Fighter X Tekken, still no plans for a no gem mode With the recent announcement that Street Fighter X Tekken will not be featured as a main game at Evolution 2013, some fans have jumped onto the Ask Capcom forums to see what Capcom thinks about the situation.

Capcom-Unity, member Charles (The Insane One), posted a thread asking if it is time to retire Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom's Christian Svensson jumped in to address this question, by quoting another user DarthEnderX.

How does Capcom "retire" a game? They've already released the game. And they aren't going to cancel DLC that they already made.

Capcom doesn't decide when people have to stop playing the game, so in what sense does Capcom have any ability to retire a game? - DarthEnderX


This is almost exactly what I was going to post. I'm not sure what is being requested.

If you are asking us to stop post ongoing support, the people who do still play the game probably wouldn't be to pleased if we did that. And there's nothing we are doing with sfxt that impacts other project resources at this time. - Svensson

In another thread, user Final_Fight_Forever was wondering if Capcom would reconsider giving Street Fighter X Tekken a no gem mode.

Still no plans at this time for that. Sorry. - Svensson

Namco Bandai Smash Bros. game on Wii U will have new characters

Namco Bandai Smash Bros. game on Wii U will have new characters During an address at the CEDEC developers conference, Masahiro Sakurai, designer from the Smash Bros. series, briefly mentioned the next entry in the franchise he's working on with Namco Bandai, stating that, "It's fun making new skills for new characters."

Possibly hinting at who some of these characters could be, back in June, Sakurai added that he's doing his best to bring old characters back to the series as well.

Those of you hoping the next Smash Bros. game will have a huge roster should keep in mind this statement made by Sakurai.

“It isn’t a matter of ‘if the next game has 50 characters, that’ll be enough.’ There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive…. In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.”

All of these comments taken together suggest that some old faces may be returning, at the expense of a few fighters who appeared in the last Smash Bros. game.

Which previous fighters do you think will be making a comeback, and which ones would you like to see dropped from the Wii version? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.
