With the latest trailer of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, the game has finally gathered the main villains for each of the series first seven parts, and this trailer focuses on the battles between the main characters and the villains.

This will be the final trailer before release of the game, and in it you can see the first video footage of Dio Brando, the main villain of the series' first part, Phantom Blood, Yoshikage Kira, the main villain of Part 4, Diamonds Don't Break, in the body of Kosaku Kawajiri, which stems form a plot point in Part 4 where the villain Kira switches bodies after the main characters thought he'd been defeated.

Also present are Enrico Pucci, the main villain from Part 6, Stone Ocean, as well as the highly patriotic Funny Valentine who is the villain of Part 7, Steel Ball Run. The trailer also shows off a lot of customization options for characters in the game, with a lot of alternate costumes that fans of the series should recognize. You can check out the trailer in all of its glory below.

Yoshikage Kira in his original body was revealed back in January as a DLC character who you can get for free by pre-ordering the game, and now there have been rumors that yet another DLC character will be joining the fray post-launch. This means that besides the currently unknown DLC character, the current roster for the game is all we'll be getting.

What are your thoughts on the chosen fighters? Anyone left out, that you'll be missing? Let us know in the comments.

The official Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- Japanese website has undergone an update lately in which new character artwork and move list images have been added. Among these images we find official art and a move list for Millia Rage, confirming her as playable.

Alongside Millia, Sol BadGuy and Ky, the official site has four more character slots listed in their Characters section, however, each one dons a question mark. Also pasted on these mystery character slots are the words "coming soon" and the numbers 0806, more than likely meaning we'll be seeing additional character reveals on August 6.

Check out the images below and let us know what you think of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-'s newly confirmed character, Millia.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle adds Funny Valentine and Kosaku Kawajiri to their roster

As we enter the month of the game's release, a new scan has been released showing two more characters for the upcoming JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle. To avoid major spoilers, the details on these two characters will be kept scarce throughout this article.

Funny Valentine is the main antagonist of the series' seventh part, Steel Ball Run, entering the fray as the third playable character from it, along with his stand power Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (commonly abbreviated as D4C), which allows him to travel to and from alternate dimensions, among other things.

The second new character is Kosaku Kawajiri, who is actually a second form of the main antagonist of Part 4, Diamonds Don't Break, Yoshikage Kira, containing the same character's mind but in a different body. For details on how that happened, read the manga as this writer is reluctant to spoil major plot points from the series. While Kira is technically already in the game, albeit as a DLC character, the scan shows him with a few new moves, though the extent of differences between these two versions of Kira has yet to be explored. Check the scan out below.

A new, and final, trailer has been said to be released in roughly a week, during the final All-Star Battle League matches, which will likely be showing off both of these characters, as well as Dio Brando and Enrico Pucci from the previous character reveal, and hopefully a few final surprises for us excited fans. The game will be released for the Playstation 3 on August 29th of this year in Japan, though there has been no official word on an international release as of yet.

The arcade cabinets of the game can be found on the fourth floor of the building. The game will be playable from 10 a.m. through midnight each day.

Daisuke Ishiwatari, general director of the Guilty Gear series, is expected to be in attendance on the first day of location testing. Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- will be playable from August 9 - 12.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle gets a bunch of new screenshots featuring Dio Brando and Enrico Pucci

A while back, we reported that villains for Part 1, Phantom Blood, and Part 6, Stone Ocean, are being added to the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle Royale roster, and beyond their original scans, here are a bunch of new screenshots showing off what they're both capable of.

Dio Brando is the first incarnation of the series' most iconic villain, showing his form from the first part of the series, where he is a vampire who uses ice powers. These screenshots show him freezing his opponents, sucking their life force, and even using his hilariously named Space Ripper Stinger Eyes.

Enrico Pucci has three different stands at his disposal, all used at different times in the series, and all of them seem to have certain requirements to use in the game, and don't seem to be possible to use simultaneously. His stand Whitesnake is what allows him to take other Stands from their owners, and apply them to other people, and his next stand C-Moon controls gravity.

His final stand, Made in Heaven (named Stairway to Heaven in the original publication) allows him to speed up the time of objects at an alarming rate, and appear to be moving 30 times faster to everybody else, basically slowing down the timeflow for living things.

These screenshots also show off a new stage, the Space Station where the climactic battle of Part 6, Stone Ocean takes place.

Enough talk about the characters, here are a bunch of screenshots to start you off.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle gameplay featuring Joseph, Akira, Narancia, Hermes, second Jousuke, Cars, Kakyoin, Okuyasu, Mista and Diavolo

CyberConnect2 have streamed the final pools for their JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle - All-Star Battle League (always the mouthful), featuring 10 more characters seeing significant playtime. While the matches are CPU vs. CPU, it does show gameplay of some highly anticipated characters for this upcoming game.

This is a good video to check out if you want to get a feel for the game, or if any of your favourite characters happen to be included in the gang above. The first video features Joseph Joestar, the main protagonist of the series' second part, Battle Tendency, Akira Otoishi, a antagonist stand user from Part 4, Diamond's Don't Break, who uses his stand Red Hot Chili Pepper to manipulate electricity.

Joining them in the first group is Narancia Ghirga from Part 5, Vento Aureo, with his stand Aerosmith that functions as a small aircraft Narancia can control, to track his enemies via radar or shoot them with automated weapons attached to the aircraft. The group also sees Hermes Costello from Part 6, Stone Ocean, with her stand Kiss that allows her to duplicate objects and return them to their original form throughu the use of stickers, and Jousuke Higashikata, the main protagonist of Part 8, JoJolion, who shares his name with the Part 4 protagonist, making things generally confusing. A common fan trend is to refer to him as Jo2uke. He uses his stand Soft and Wet to take properties from one object or surface and remove it, or apply it to something else (such as potentially removing the friction from a human being, causing them to slide uncontrollably, or take the hardness of a rock and apply it to something else). You can catch all of these characters in action right below.

Hit the jump to catch the video featuring the rest of the characters.
