Namco Bandai also detailed the first three chapters, which you can find below:
- Chapter 1: Phantom Blood – Victorian England – When Dario Brando was about to die, he asked Lord George Joestar a favor… Little did he know that this favor will change the fate of the Joestar family and its descendants. When joining Jonathan Joestar and his father, Dario Brando’s evil son, Dio Brando, had other devilish schemes in his mind. After several truly noxious actions, Dio Brando reaches a whole new level when he puts on the Stone Mask which turns him into a vampire! Fighting vampires is a complete new deal for JoJo; only Will A. Zeppeli and his mastery of the Ripple art can help him…
- Chapter 2: Battle Tendency – New York City – Two generations after Dio vs Jonathan Joestar fights, Jonathan’s Grandson, Joseph Joestar discovers that one of his family’s old friends has disappeared. This leads him into a new adventure where he ends-up searching for ‘Stone Pillars’ and the ‘Red Stone of Aja’ through Mexico, Italy and Austria! During his odyssey, our main hero will encounter fierce and tricky foes such as San Tan, Wamuu, Esidisi and Kars!
- Chapter 3: Stardust Crusaders – Japan – Jotaro Kujo inherited his grandfather’s strength, but unlike Joseph Joestar, the young Jotaro likes to get in trouble and in fights. All these fights lead him to encounter Muhammad Avdol, his grandfather’s friend. Running into this man made Jotaro realize that he wasn’t the only person carrying an Evil Spirit with him, in other words: many strong people have a “Stand”. Quickly, Joseph figures out that this phenomenon is linked with Dio Brando reemergence. This discovery forces Kujo Jotaro, Joseph Jostar, Noriaki Kakyoin, Muhammad Avdol and their friends to find out the Joestar’s family nemesis: Dio!
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is coming in English to the Americas, Europe and Australia for Playstation 3.
