JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven for PS4 and PS3 is another part of the video game series based on the manga, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, by Hirohiko Araki. It is a fighting game developed by CyberConnect2 studio, which created JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, as well as various entries in such series as Naruto and .hack//.
The story of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven for PS4 and PS3 is not based on the manga. Instead, Hiroko Araki wrote a completely new story for the game set in JoJo’s world, starting right after events shown in Stardust Crusaders. Jotaro Kujo is unexpectedly attacked by his dead friends and foes alike. As it turns out, there are evil forces behind it, so the protagonist sets on journey to bring back the order, traveling in time using Robert E.O. Speedwagon’s holy stone.
The gameplay of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Eyes of Heaven is similar to what we have seen in the Naruto: Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm series. Fights take place on vast arenas, where we take part in 2 vs. 2 duels. But the game isn’t designed simply for multiplayer, since the second fighter can be also controlled by AI. Heroes possess unique special abilities and are divided by their fighting style (though it is worth nothing that some fighters use two styles), like Ripple User (accumulating energy necessary to execute attacks), Ogre Street (using knives), or Vampire (draining enemies’ health). As in every reputable fighting game, we can perform combos, but also join forces with our partner to gain access to techniques like Dual Combos or Dual Heat Attacks.
The developers have prepared various, familiar to the fans, characters to play as, e.g. Jonathan Joestar, Will A. Zeppeli, Robert E.O. Speedwagon, Caesar Anthonio, Wamuu, or Esidsi. The list of available heroes differs depending on campaign’s chapter we are in.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Eyes of Heaven for PS4 and PS3 has been implemented using a distinctive visual style, which is supposed to imitate the original JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures manga.
