Fans of the series will still be able to enjoy the classic arcade style appearance with an option to play in Arcade SD Mode.

Also, for the first time since the original Dreamcast version launched, gamers will have the ability to play against competitors online, in an online matching system reminiscent of Super Street Fighter IV and Marvelvs. Capcom 3. Last but not least, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver introduces an all new multiplayer lobby system where fighters will be able to compete with up to eight players.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver will retail for $19.99 on the PlayStation Network and for 1600 Microsoft Points on the Xbox LIVE Arcade.
