A new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game is in the works over at Bandai Namco Games, the latest issue of am unnamed Japanese games magazine (likely to be Weekly Shonen Jump) is revealing this week.


Entitled "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven", the new fighter is said to be a tag battle game where the action will take place on 3D stages. What isn't mentioned specifically is if this new title is a sequel to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle (also published by Bandai Namco Games but developed over at Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm maker CyberConnect 2).

Although the visuals in this new game, as you'll see in the leaked scan below, appears to be highly similar to those of All-Star Battle, the text itself makes no reference to JJBA:ASB. Given that the gameplay in All-Star Battle is locked to a 2D plane, like in a traditional fighting game, Eyes of Heaven may or may not be an attempt to take the series in another direction.

Two playable fighters were announced alongside the game, and they are Diego Brando from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 7, and Rudol von Stroheim the cybernetic German soldier from Part 2.

Judging from the images in the leaked scan, it is highly implied that most, if not all, of the playable characters in JJBA:ASB will be making a return in this new fighter.

We'll find out more details about Eyes of Heaven, including whether or not it is a sequel to CyberConnect 2's JJBA: ASB, later this week, when the new game makes its first publicly playable demo debut at Jump Fiesta in Japan this Saturday.

Apart from being showcased at Jump Fiesta, it was also mentioned that Bandai Namco Games has plans to distribute a playable demo online through the PlayStation Network.
