Jojo's Venture is a one-on-one fighting game based upon the long-running Jojo's Bizarre Adventure manga series by Hirohiko Araki.
This game adapts Part 3 of the series, Stardust Crusaders. Jotaro Kujo, grandson of Jonathan Joestar, the protagonist of the first two Parts of the series, develops a Stand, which is a spiritual manifestation of his fighting series. He locks himself in jail, believing himself to be possessed, until he is manipulated into leaving by his grandfather, Joseph Joestar. Shortly after, Joseph explains that Dio Brando, the man who attempted to destroy the Joestar family two generations ago, has returned to take revenge upon the Joestar family and it's up to the Joestars to find and defeat him.
The game is a one-on-one fighter, similar in gameplay to most of Capcom's other fighting games. In this game, however, you can call upon your Stand to access an entirely different set of normal attacks and gain additional defense and offensive bonuses. Your Stand's power is not infinite, however - if you take enough damage, it'll break, leaving you open to a devastating counter attack. Every character's Stand has their own special powers which can be used to your advantage.
The game features eight selectable fighters (six heroes and two villains), plus three hidden characters. Other notable villains from the series are also in the game, as unplayable mini bosses.
