JoJo Match Videos

Another good old fighting game, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, was featured on A-Cho's YouTube channel. Watching this brings to mind a lot of similarities to MvC3, including a button scheme that includes three attack strengths and a special button. There is even a method of canceling block-stun, ala X-factor. Check out the video to see Chaka slicing and dicing and Dio stopping time to slam a steamroller on his opponent.

Added another video below. The more I watch it, the more I am in awe at how interesting this game is. The different characters are all capable of very different things, yet they all kind of fit together. Specifically, the way that "stands" work stands out (no pun intended). Some characters have non-active stands that are basically only used for single attacks when pressing the Stand button. Other characters have active stands that are summoned to fight alongside the caller. The final stand type can be dispatched to fight at a distance from the caller (e.g. Devo's Ebony Devil puppet).
