JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – Day 1 Video Roundup: Combos, Glitches and Infinites

By on August 30, 2013 at 12:20 pm

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle has only been out for a day in Japan and East Asia, but people are already putting out a ton of videos for the game. While most of these are on Japan’s Nico Nico video service, folks like ImShiawase and UltraTien have been reposting videos from Nico Nico onto their YouTube channels for the rest of the world to see. Meanwhile, noted CMV maker Persona has made his own contribution.

The videos focus mostly on combos, including a few basic combo demonstrations useful for anyone looking to pick up the game. In addition to this, there are also videos focusing on glitches including some Rival School’s style jump in infinites for certain characters. Check them out below and let us know what you think.

First up, we have these videos showing off some combos for Josuke Higashikata (from Part IV) shared by UltraTien on his channel.

Next up we have a compilation of basic combos for Part VI’s Jolyne Kujo from 中猫. This video comes with combo notation making it good for anyone looking to learn Jolyne.

Also from ImShiawase’s channel are these combos for Giorno, Ceasar, Bruno,  Gyro and Part VIII Josuke. These come courtesy of higurasi, Spookie, 新井木, MAVEN, 化膿恭子, and かいるん.

Meanwhile, Persona has made this short combo video for Part III protagonist Jotaro Kujo.

The 3D nature of the game also allows for some nice stage-specific combos.

Of course, no collection of JoJo’s combo videos is complete without some for Dio Brando himself.

Speaking of Dio, his Part III version currently has a glitch that occurs with his Stand, the World, that makes timestop last longer than intended.

Next up, we have a couple of jump infinites for Jolyne and Diavolo. Long time fighting veterans will note that these look similar to the jump in infinites from Capcom’s Rival Schools and ostensibly work the same way – by allowing the attacking character to quickly re-jump while the defending character is still in the hitstun from a prior jump in attack.

Then we have a bunch of infinites where different characters simply keep hitting their opponent in mid air as they would a speed bag in boxing.
