Capcom has announced JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD will release on PlayStation Network August 21 and Xbox Live Arcade August 22.
The HD update of the manga-inspired brawler from the PlayStation and Dreamcast era will feature the option to play in either the classic arcade style as well as in “Arcade SD Mode,” which will be pixel art-y like the original games.
The game will revive/support online play that will include the ability to filter opponents by location and connection speed, similar to the systems seen in Super Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Fans of lobby fights will be pleased to hear that the game will introduce a new eight-player multiplayer mode where players can compete (while waiting to compete) for a chance to compete in the final showdown. Losing isn’t just shameful; it also means you have to watch the person that beat you play their next match. Brutal.
For those players who love showing off their skills to the world, you’ll be able to do just that thanks to the game’s new video sharing feature, which lets you save a replay of your fight and post it online.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD will set you back $9.99 on PSN and 1600 on XBLA.
