After a recent whirlwind of rumors regarding a potentially upcoming JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fighting game developed by Soft Circle French Bread, new details have emerged that have — unfortunately — confirmed that the “leak” is fake.
A fan on Twitter recently questioned voice actress Kira Buckland, who was rumored to be voicing Jolyne Cujoh in the game — supposedly titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Chrono Crusaders — who replied that though she was flattered, she’d never heard of this project before. Sean Chiplock, the supposed English voice of Giorno Giovanna commented that, “It’s a very funny JoJoke.”
Additionally, DasVergeben’s “source” reached out to him, noting that he made it all up in an effort to “teach him a lesson,” though he apologized and claimed that “[He] wants to help [him] become legitimate.”
Finally, DasVergeben solemnly commented, “One day we will get a great JoJo fighting game again. Well, hopefully,” and will be severing ties with this source going forward, since he was already openly doubting his claims due to their extravagance and detail. As always, this is just a reminder to question any sort of rumor report before any type of official confirmation. It’s certainly a disappointing development — hearing Dan Southworth voicing Yoshikage Kira was something I was personally looking forward to! You can see the voice actors’ tweets and the “leaker’s” comments via Imgur and Twitter below.
LMAO I’m flattered but nope. Sounds like someone’s fan casting, where people put who they would ideally like to play each role. And now I’m imagining what @sonicmega ‘s Giorno would sound like hahaha

I'm very sorry for this
I gave him a "fake" leak to see if he was full of it or not and I had to go into detail
And well, now we all know
