“Yare Yare Daze!” Earlier today, Bandai Namco released a new trailer for Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure: Eyes of Heaven featuring new characters, a story mode, and a new way to play. Unfortunately, because Jojo has a relatively small following outside of Japan, this trailer is only in Japanese.
However, we here at GameSkinny have roughly translated some important parts of the trailer. Here is what we saw:
This text refers to the new dynamic battle system and a new mode called “Double Combo.”
The combat in Eyes of Heaven varies from the usual side to side fighting system that Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure: All-Star Battle had. Combat is more dynamic and free-flowing like Dragonball Z Sagas and Dragonball Xenoverse. There is also a new mode called “Double Combo” that lets players engage in 2 v. 2 battles.
Now players can ORA ORA with Jotaro and Jolyne or MUDA MUDA with Dio and Giorno. We also got a look at newly revealed characters such as Jonathan and Joseph Joestar, Baron Zeppeli and Caesar, and Erich von Stroheim.

Vehicles may play a role in the game as well as we can see Rohan Kishibe mowing down a few enemies on his motorcycle. A number of characters from Part V and Part VI of the manga will also be able to engage in stand battles.
Guido Mista, Giorno Giovanna, Narancia Ghirga, and Fugo Pannacotta
Hermes Costello, Jolyne Cujoh, and Weather Report
Other characters from earlier parts will also be making an appearance such as Lisa Lisa, Dio, Pet Shop, and Vanilla Ice. From this image below, it seems that players who register a product code online can receive Jotaro’s part IV outfit.
Jojo: Eye’s of Heaven releases in Japan on December 17th with a U.S. release to follow.
