Guys on the JoJo Forum go all out. User mikestrider is leading their ASB thread and has started the translation and preview efforts on a lot of fronts. It’s got all the preview videos plus the subbed PV 3, all the current Famitsu articles, demo videos, move lists as they become translated, all that good stuff. Recently, he added the initial parts of his translation of PV 4. Directly quoted:
Dedicated to all those who love JoJo.
It’s the birth of the ultimate JoJo Game.
The Dream Match that everyone has dreamed of.
Father & Daughter
Jotaro: Hey girl, are you a new Stand user?
Jolyne: Looks like you’ve lost some of your ability.
Jotaro: I don’t know you are but you’ve got quite the attitude.
Jolyne: It still feels like my father.
Gang & Delinquent
Giorno: I’m prepared to pave the way.
Okuyasu: Shut up, Topknot! *gestures* Look!
Avenger & Avenger
Hermes: What’re you doing, bastard!
Polnareff: The tip is quite sharp, huh?
Wind & Flame
Abdul: Flames are flawless.
Wham: Read the wind. Hear the whispers in the air.
RERO & RERA
Gun & Gun
Hol Horse: Let’s see which one of us is faster!
Mista: I’ll destroy that mouth of yours!
Mudamuda & Dorarara
DIO: That head of yours looks like cow shit.
Josuke: What was that about my head??!
Oh, Dio. If only you knew he danger pulling that against Josuke. I don’t really understand how Giorno’s hair equates out to a topknot, but it’s Okuyasu, so maybe I’m not supposed to.
Along with this is that there is a new Famitsu article. Now that we’ve gone through what are probably all the character reveals (if there are anymore, they’ll probably be DLC like Kira), we’re starting to get move lists.
This is Jotaro and Star Platinum’s move list. The other lists in the articles are for the first characters revealed for the game: Joseph, Wham, and Gyro. I’m very encouraged by these lists because I didn’t know how the combos and controls would work. Seeing that they’re based on circle motions with the stick, Capcom-like, relieves me because that’s a command system I can do or at least understand.
I don’t know if these are full move lists. I feel like they might be a little scant, but these are only for special moves. There’s probably a lot more if you look into things like target combos and that sort of thing. Each character’s Heart Heat, Grand Heat, and Style Moves have been revealed. Wham gets two styles: One for Sandstorm protector, which probably gives him higher defense; one for Holy Sandstorm mode, which probably gives him higher attack.
Everyone’s Heat moves are about what you’d expect. Jotaro’s is especially hilarious because he has three different ORA listed and his Heart Heat is just ORAORAORAORA! But what’s nice is that the moves aren’t just generically named or that CC2 tried to come up with a cool name. Jotaro’s Grand Heat is “It’s Because You Really Pissed Me Off,” the move he killed Dio with. Joseph’s is “It’s a Deceptive Trick,” which is really just Joseph being Joseph. The lists are cool, and we’re only getting more.
Along with all the other information, he’s also posted all of the stages. I’m bringing up the Cairo Bridge, ripped straight from Heritage for the Future, because I don’t think I have before and the stage hazard is awesome.
The only thing that can improve this is if there’s an accompanying one where Dio throws the Senator at you.
There’s also a quick shot of the Prize Star Book, a book with gameplay basic, alternate colors, taunts, that sort of thing, which is a translation in progress, and a quick shot of the PS3 custom theme that comes with ASB. Get Dio all over your TV. He wouldn’t want it any other way.
So it’s a pretty good comprehensive info dump on ASB. Check it out for even more information. I know I will be.
