JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Requiem is a fighting game that sets you with the task of collecting the best content from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure readapted to your standard MUGEN format. This combo packs a punch, making for a fun title where you interact with over seventy different characters from each of the manganime sagas.
Control systems in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Requiem are easily set up from within the options menu. By default, two players can play using the same keyboard, one on the left and one on the right. But, you can also set up controllers for your Xbox 360, Xbox One or Playstation 4. Otherwise, if you’d prefer you can customize your keyboard anyway you want right from your PC.
In JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Requiem you’ll find several different game modes: arcade, versus, survival and training. Not to mention you can also play both one-on-one and two-on-two simultaneous fights, or two-on-two alternate fights. The 2 vs 2 fights with all four fighters participating simultaneously are particularly noteworthy — a real chaotic spectacle.
The game’s character line-up is absolute off-the-walls madness. Virtually every character that’s made even a cameo throughout the manganimes are back in full force for a real blast from the past. From Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando, to Vanilla Ice and Oingo Boingo, to Joline Kujo — the boys are back in town. In total, that’s a stellar line up with more than seventy different characters.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Requiem is a spectacular fighting game that’s likely to mainly appeal to fans of this popular manga. But it’s also good enough as a standalone game that anyone (even if they have never seen a single episode of the anime) is sure to enjoy it.
