Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is a manga that follows a family tree of characters nicknamed Jojo who happen to have... well, odd adventures. Last year Bandai Namco released Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle in Japan. Many, including myself, didn’t expect to see this game come over due to the multitude of copyright issues.
