JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor is a multiplayer Battle Royale game based on the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure franchise for arcades. It was first announced on December 18th, 2018, and was initially set to release in summer 2019 but was delayed to winter 2019. A location test for a beta version was done in January 2019. It looks like the tests are done and the game is ready for release in Japan.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor will support up to 20 players in a single match and feature characters from Parts 3 to 5 of the series.
The players each control one character and roam in a vast map whose effective size reduces gradually as a dangerous zone progressively engulfs the environment. It is shown that the players are deployed randomly on the map in predetermined square zones. They then must fight each other, depleting the enemy’s health bar until one is depleted and the enemy is eliminated. Players will need to utilize their Stand powers to be the last person standing. Depending on the mode, players can also be split into distinct sides instead with allies fighting together, and being able to be revived.
The player can perform basic attacks, charged attacks, or use their Stands’ special abilities. For instance Star Platinum can stop time, immobilizing enemies for a short time frame. Characters with long-distance ranged Stands can send their Stands away from them, controlling them at the same time to attack other characters while they hide.
Since JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor is based around Stardust Crusaders, Diamond is Unbreakable, and Golden Wind, you’ll get the characters from that era to play as. So far the confirmed playable characters are listed below, with more announced to be coming to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor over time. Unlike American and European Arcades, games in Japan are usually networked in a way that allows the company to update them with new characters all the time. So if your favorite stand user isn’t listed below, then they’ll be coming soon.
