      Persona 4 Arena :P

      • That was a one off situation. Even Atlus said so due to the Japanese and English release being so close to one another. This is unlikely to make it to the west so I doubt we’ll have that problem. I reckon am gonna get the vita version of this since am already getting Jojo for PS3.

    Will J-Stars Victory VS be what Sony need to outsell Super Smash Bros.? Because I am highly positive that this will sell much better than PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

    Jokes aside, can anyone tell me a little bit about this game fighting system? Is it something aiming at hardcore fighting crowds or casual fun-loving folks?

      Can´t say, but with the “team battle” and “3D field”, it sounds like Power Stone

        What I was thinking also. Which I’d be 100% down with; why Capcom hasn’t made a DL, online-enabled version of PS 1/2 is beyond me, and furthermore is why companies haven’t simply ripped off the formula yet. Those games were just the best local gaming I’ve ever played in my life— I want to experience that again!

        • Budgiecat

          The PS2 Bleach games kinda did…

      If it’s anything like it’s prequels on the DS, its pretty much aimed at both audiences. Just think of Super Smash Bros but with these characters.
      This one is looking to be a bit different from the rest though.

    • OverlordZetta

      Character power is what All Stars was lacking, and while this has it, no Japanese exclusive title will come even close to Smash Bros, and certainly not an anime one.
      It’s a damn shame too. I find the gameplay in All Stars a lot more fun than Smash Bros.

    Now we can see whose the strongest among them.

    Lol at the title. J-star Victory VS.
    Anyway, I am pretty sure that this game will be sold on the local stores here so I am just hoping that there will be an english version.

  • Bobby Jennings

    I’m so fucking HYPE.

  • cant wait to see gameplay
    and how big the cast is :D

  • Kurisu Makise

    Naruto Uzumaki? Check. Next…Ichigo Kurosaki and I’ll be ready to go.

  • Rafael Martines

    Needs more Bleach, YuYu Hakusho and HunterxHunter, would be awesome if Edward Elric make a cameo… but Fullmetal Alchemist was not published by V-Jump :'( damm Square Enix

    I hope the localize both the PS3 and Vita versions.

    Judging by the screen shots more like a Dragon Ball Z:Raging Blast (Insert “Oh! My God!!” speech) with a sprinkling of Power Stone type of game.It seems like another chance has gone a miss to have an anime crossover fighting video game,play like Dragon Ball Z Burst Limit.

  • 8ing mii 8ing u

    How about Heroes Jump Up To Get Beat Down for a title.

  • Rudy Soto

    So Bleach has lost its spot to a more appealing Toriko. Hilarious.

    Any case, hope they don’t forget the classics like Nube-sensei.

    • unleashrage

      I’m sure Ichigo will make the cut, just a matter of when :)

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    I know sales doesn’t particularly make all characters possible but…

    Can we get Jotaro and Ichigo in there?

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ooh. Vita version for me. Can’t wait to see who else they announce.

  • PrinceHeir

    i hope in the future we would have JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure vs Hokuto no Ken!!!!!

    that would be the most godly crossover in Za Warudo!!!

  • Elvick

    Namco Bandai… so even if it is localized, it’ll probably just be the PS3 version. *sigh*
