JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle R is the biggest game ever in the franchise, bringing together 50 characters from every story arc. Players can experience popular battles from each story and see heroes from different universes interact for the first time, playing as Jonathan Joestar, DIO, Jotaro Kujo, Jolyne Cujoh, daughter of Jotaro and the first-ever female JoJo in the series, and many more.
