JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R will also receive an “Early Access Demo” that is coming soon to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. This is great news as this title looks like a lot of fun. How it can succeed is if it leans heavily into the absurdity of the JoJo franchise. The JoJo franchise is one of over the top action with equally mad characters. To stand atop the mountain of anime-inspired videogames this will have to go above and beyond. It has potential will it capitalise on it though?
