JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle has manga effects

A trailer for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle has escaped from the Tokyo Game Show at last, showing off some pretty cool graphical touches inspired by the franchise's manga origins.

The Japanese text you see accompanying blows are onomatopoeic sound effects; an extraneous delight indeed. There are also some neat panel transition effects. The whole thing looks pretty polished; probably because it's the product of Asura's wrath developer CyberConnect2. The fighter is due on PlayStation 3 in Japan in 2013; it might come west if a recent HD remake of an old favourite proves popular enough, although they don't hail from the same publisher.
