Kars and Rohan Kishibe unveiled for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

In the latest issue of the Japanese magazine V-Jump, we've gotten two new character reveals for the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. The first one is Kars, the main villain of the series' second part, Battle Tendency. Kars is the leader of the so-called "Pillar Men", the main antagonists of Battle Tendency, and his cohorts Wham and ACDC have already been shown to be in the game, so his inclusion wasn't much of a surprise.

Fanatiq: 'People were disappointed in me for playing League of Legends', speaks out about the difficulties in juggling multiple genres as a top player Gamasutra posted an article dealing with the massive E-Sports scene currently present in League of Legends, and about players from different genres switching over to the game. A notable example is Marn, known originally as a fighting game player, who has found great success in League of Legends where he manages his own team "Team MRN", which features ClakeyD, another renowned fighting game player.

In the article, they remark that while many players have switched over to League of Legends from other genres, like fighting games, the players themselves are reluctant to talk about it due to the heavy tension that currently lingers between the different genres. It is even mentioned that some players that were spoken to in relation to this article refused to be named, since they hadn't "gone public" about playing League of Legends yet, in fear of the potential scorn they might face from their fanbase as well as their peers.

In the midst of this, high-level Marvel vs. Capcom player Fanatiq, who has recently been playing League of Legends regularly, decided to speak out regarding the troubles that follow with trying to transition into a new genre when you're already famous for something different.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle will be 'more like a conventional fighting game' than previous projects, says CyberConnect2 president In an interview with Siliconera, CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama had a bit to say regarding the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle.

Even if you aren't a fan of the manga or the recently created anime, fighting game fans should know a thing or two about JoJo due to the successful JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game Capcom released to arcades back in 1998, and was later ported to the Sony PlayStation and Sega Dreamcast.

Below, you will find a comment from Matsuyama himself, regarding the difference between JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, and their previous Naruto: Ultimate Ninja projects..

JoJo is ultimately about reading your opponent’s moves in a fight, more so than in Naruto. And so the style and controls here are shaping up here more like a conventional fighting game.
