Koichi Hirose and Akira Otoishi revealed for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

The latest issue of V-Jump brings new characters for the upcoming fighter JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle.

All we can provide right now is a somewhat low-quality photo of the page, but fans should be able to discern that the newcomers are Koichi Hirose and Akira Otoishi, both from the poorly-named "Diamond is Not Crash", the fourth part of the long-running manga.

Both come equipped with their stands from the series, with Koichi using "Echoes", a sound-based stand that allows him to manipulate sounds around him to replicate the event that caused the sound. Akira Otoishi, a secondary villain in Part 4, uses "Red Hot Chili Pepper", a Stand with electricity-based powers, that can travel through wires and be controlled from a long distance.

This is the first appearance in a game for both characters, since the last JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game, which was released in arcades during 1998, focused mainly on the most popular arc in the series, Part 3: "Stardust Crusaders".

We look forward to trying both of these new characters out once the game launches in Japan on August 29th of this year. No official word on an international release as of yet.

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience

Justin Wong updates community on his Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown challenge, discusses training and tournament experience Evil Geniuses' Justin Wong has once again posted a new blog over on Sega's website detailing his progress with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Justin was challenged by Sega to compete in the Sega Cup tournament in April and has been documenting his learning process.

Justin notes how he's been training as of late, his experience in the Virtua Fighter 5 tournament at Winter Brawl and more. Here's a small except from the article.

During my travels I’ve been entering VF5FS tournaments across the country and it has been a great learning experience. I played in the Winterbrawl tournament two weeks ago and lost to one of the best players in the country, Denkai. I couldn’t get anything started and he killed me, but his awesome use of fuzzy guarding was a good wake up call for what I need to learn to take my game to the next level. I played in Loser’s against a Brad player. I really didn’t know what to expect from Brad but at least I was able to keep it very close. I was very depressed but the VF players on the East Coast told me to keep it up and that they were impressed, which was pretty nice of them.

The week after I went to Wednesday Night Fights hosted by Superdojo and Level Up and entered the local tournament there for VF. I placed 3rd in that tournament and I was pretty happy that I wasn’t the worst player at the tourney. I think I got that far because I fought three Jackys in a row so I knew what to expect, but it was a great learning experience to see what other good players were doing with my character. I hope to enter more VF tournaments before the Sega Cup because I believe that the more experience I get, the better my chances are.
