JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 アイズオブヘブン JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Aizu Obu Hebun?) is a tag team fighting game based on the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Namco Bandai Games exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
The game features 52 playable characters (53 with first print bonus), ranging from Phantom Blood to JoJolion. It was announced on Famitsu's January 15, 2015, issue and was presented at Jump Festa 2015.
The game was released on December 17, 2015, in Japan, June 28, 2016, in North America and July 1, 2016, in Europe.
Eyes of Heaven is a 3D action brawler, described as Stylish Tag JoJo Action (スタイリッシュタッグジョジョアクション Sutairisshu Taggu JoJo Akushon), set in large arenas based on locations in the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga.
Players may pick a single character to control in a large environment, as well as a second character that may be controlled by either a CPU or second human player to fight the enemy team for a 2v2 battle. However, the game doesn't allow for local multiplayer but only online multiplayer in 1v1 or 2v2 matches.
During a match, each duo has to deplete the enemy duo's health bar first before the end of the round. To do so, the characters have access to either basic attacks (A Normal attack used to create basic combos and a Powerful attack with combo-specific properties) or special skills taking the form of attacks that will deplete a larger portion of an enemy's health bar should they hit, or preparing/providing a number of advantages and bonuses when used. Special skills are subject to cooldowns during which a character isn't allowed to perform it again. Defensively speaking, a player can either block and attack to reduce the damage taken, or dodge it with a fast but short side-/back-step. Each character usually has one special ability they can occasionally perform that has notably more potent effects or damage compared to others, but has a greater cooldown. All characters possess a Flash Burst and two Flash Cancels; Flash Bursts cause the character to pose with a burst of light, breaking them out of combos by granting them invincibility and blowing back attackers; Flash Cancels instantly cancel out of a character's attack in order to open up more opportunities to combo. When a Flash Burst or Cancel is used, there is a long cooldown before they can be used again.
Each team has a Dual Heat Gauge with six different sections that fill when dealing damage or performing other tasks such as destroying stage objects. When one section of the gauge is filled, a team can do a Dual Combo (デュアルコンボ Dyuaru Konbo) during which they have to fill a special gauge by landing attacks before a timer runs out in order to perform a special cinematic and damage further the enemy team while restoring some health. When three sections are filled, a team can then perform Dual Heat Attacks (デュアルヒートアタック Dyuaru Hīto Attaku), special cinematic combos which will greatly damage one of the enemy characters.
Moreover, the arena contains interactive items the characters can freely use for a number of goals, such as throwing or trapping objects, and stage-specific gimmicks such as knocking enemies down onto spikes to deal bonus damage and drinking at a cafe to replenish health.
Characters have three health bars which are depleted in succession until the character is "Retired", and knocked out of the fight. Each time a health bar is depleted, the character is temporarily knocked down before being able to resume the fight, permanently preventing them from restoring health past that point as well as granting them invincibility and therefore a chance to recover. When a member of a duo is Retired, their partner will be powered up to balance the number disadvantage under a Soul Succession. Soul Successions grant the character in question an extra purple health bar that will slowly deplete over time, and unparalleled power-ups to movement speed, skill cooldown speed, and attack damage. All unused Dual Combos are unavailable for the rest of the match, while uses of Dual Heat Attacks are converted into Soul Succession uses.
Certain match-ups contain special animations and dialogue between two characters, mostly between allies in the form of unique, fully animated Dual Heat Attacks.
The Story Mode includes an ability tree for each character. Characters are originally available in the game only with an incomplete set of techniques which are unlocked by fighting with them and use the point rewards from a fight to unlock a technique or improve the character's various stats in the tree.
Like in All-Star Battle, characters are categorized by Battle Styles which change how each character plays in the game, as well as their different strengths and weaknesses. For example, Vampires and the Mode-using Pillar Men heal from damage over time, except from Ripple-enhanced attacks and they can be immobilized by ultraviolet lamps as part of Rudol von Stroheim's "The Prime Example of Superior German Science" style. The Battle Styles "Ripple User", "Vampire", "Mode", "Stand User", and "Mounted" return from All-Star Battle (with slightly different names), while Eyes of Heaven adds "Ogre Street" (食屍鬼街（オウガーストリート） Ōgā Sutorīto) and "The Prime Example of Superior German Science" (ゲルマン民族の最高知能の結晶 Geruman Minzoku no Saikō Chinō no Kesshō, literally "The Greatest Crystallized Intelligence of the German People") to the game. Also new in Eyes of Heaven is that characters that were previously classified in All Star Battle as having one Battle Style but displayed abilities of another are now classified as having two Battle Styles. For example, Old Joseph Joestar is now classed as both a Ripple User and a Stand User, while in the previous game he was only classified as a Stand User who happened to have Ripple-based abilities and attacks as well.
The game features an original storyline supervised by Hirohiko Araki and centers around a major timeline and universal interference within the JoJo universe affecting characters across all arcs, as well as the Saint Corpse Parts.

There's always a blessing waiting in the wings, and as many signposts to guide you as there are stars in the sky.||”|
Chapter 1: Stardust Crusaders (スターダストクルセイダース Sutādasuto Kuruseidāsu)
Begins with the final battle between Jotaro and DIO at Egypt, 1988, as Jotaro defeats DIO as per the original storyline and burns his diary the following night. On their way back to Japan, Jotaro and Joseph are stopped by a young Robert E. O. Speedwagon at the airport shortly before Polnareff returns to them, claiming to have been attacked in the plane before takeoff. The three subsequently encounter the thought-to-be-deceased Avdol and Iggy, who meet the group with hostility, claiming they were sent by "him". They flee the airport to avoid endangering civilians and, after a battle on the rooftops of Cairo, the two assailants are incapacitated. Immediately afterwards, Jotaro, Polnareff, and Joseph are attacked by Kakyoin and N'Doul, who were also thought to have been dead. After they are both defeated, N'Doul manages to escape, but Speedwagon uses a part of the Saint Corpse he obtained beforehand to heal Kakyoin. Speedwagon explains that the Saint Corpse Part in his possession led him through time, in search of an unknown danger that is causing strange phenomena, like bringing people back from the dead, and thus supposedly slowly destroying the time-space continuum. Speedwagon then enlists the Crusaders' help in gathering the remaining eight parts of the Saint Corpse, just as the one in his possession resonates, indicating another part nearby. The part is found and kept by Jotaro, and Speedwagon guides the heroes through a "light rift", a dimensional crack from which light seeps out, where they travel to another time period to continue their search.
Chapter 2: Vento Aureo (黄金の風 Ōgon no Kaze)
A brief summary of the events of Vento Aureo is shown as Jotaro and Speedwagon appear at the Colosseum in 2001, where Mista, Trish, and Giorno reside having defeated Diavolo. After Mista and Trish suddenly disappear, Giorno is attacked by Bucciarati, who was originally supposed to be dead. Bucciarati is quickly fended off after Jotaro arrives at the scene and the two are then challenged by Narancia and Fugo. After their defeat, Fugo disappears, but Jotaro is able to heal Narancia using the life energy of his Saint Corpse part and brings him to their side. Jotaro and Giorno head to the Naples Station where they find Polnareff; Giorno feels like he knows Polnareff from somewhere but cannot remember. Bucciarati appears once again with Vanilla Ice and after a brief bout, the two escape. Soon after Giorno finds and secures the third Saint Corpse Part, Trish and Mista, who had been trapped by Bucciarati's Sticky Fingers when Giorno was not looking (thus explaining their disappearance), appear with Narancia and they recognize who Polnareff is, claiming that he is "Polnareff the Turtle" (by that time, the older Polnareff's soul was inhabiting Coco Jumbo's body). Polnareff gets confused by this, so the group decides to it's best to pretend they don't know him. Speedwagon takes them inside Mr.President so the ever-growing group can cross over the light rifts without overloading them, which is done by way of Jotaro tucking Coco Jumbo into his jacket. Unknown to the heroes, they are spied on by a revived Diavolo, whose currently working for "that man".
Chapter 3: Diamond Is Unbreakable (ダイヤモンドは砕けない Daiyamondo wa Kudakenai)
Jotaro and Joseph arrive at Morioh Town in 1999. Joseph recognizes the town, but quickly changes the subject and walks off when Jotaro asks him about it. Soon after, Josuke and Koichi find Jotaro, who asks them about strange happenings in town. As Koichi thinks about what to tell him, Okuyasu and Rohan appear and attack them for interfering with "his" plans, forcing Josuke and Koichi to face them. After their defeat, Okuyasu and Rohan try to escape, but Jotaro uses Star Platinum's time stop ability to stop them in their tracks and heal them with his part of the Saint Corpse. While Rohan is successfully healed, Okuyasu escapes and Josuke gives chase. Later, Jotaro finds Joseph and explains to him that they are ten years into their future, when Josuke appears, saying he trailed Okuyasu until he disappeared. After learning he is talking to a younger Jotaro, Josuke spots one of Harvest's beings and chases after it to gather them, having remembered that Shigechi died. One of them, however, escapes and returns to Shigechi who, joined by Akira Otoishi, confronts Josuke and Jotaro. After being defeated, Shigechi and Otoishi escape, and Jotaro asks Joseph to explain the situation to a very nervous Josuke. For obvious reasons, Joseph keeps trying to dodge it, until Jotaro forces him to do so, by having them enter Mr.President. Rohan and Koichi soon join Jotaro, when Yukako appears, under the influence of a strange phenomenon, ready to fight them. After being defeated, Yukako disappears like the rest. Unexpectedly, Enya shows up and sends her zombies to attack Jotaro, Rohan and Koichi. After the zombies are defeated, Enya extols "his" virtues and "his" power to "overwrite" and leaves. Jotaro then convinces Rohan and Koichi to help him search for the Saint Corpse Parts. As Josuke returns, Jotaro's Corpse part starts resonating, and the fourth Corpse part is given to Josuke for safekeeping. Joseph then reappears, showing a camera he found in Mr.President and, using Hermit Purple on it, a picture of a white-skinned DIO is developed, to the Crusaders' shock, as they were assured of DIO's demise at Jotaro's hands.
Chapter 4: Phantom Blood (ファントムブラッド Fantomu Buraddo)
The heroes' next stop is inside the Joestar Mansion, in 19th century England. Jotaro and Speedwagon arrive in this century as Speedwagon realizes that the Joestar mansion was suppose to be destroyed from their previous battle with Dio. They soon find a badly battered Jonathan, followed by the era's Dio, who commands his zombies to fight his opponents. Jonathan, helped by Jotaro, makes short work of them, and Dio, interested in Jotaro's Stand powers, decides to take matters into his own hands, joined by Diego. Despite the animosity between them, they decide to team up to eliminate Jonathan (whom Diego recognizes as Johnny's counterpart), but Speedwagon takes his friend's place to fight them with Jotaro. When Dio and Diego are defeated, they flee, swearing revenge. Speedwagon then tells Jotaro about the first strange phenomenon they sensed: just after finding out Dio was hiding in Windknight's Lot, the Joestar Mansion, which had been burned to the ground, suddenly reappeared, infested with zombies: that was when Jonathan and Speedwagon found the first Saint Corpse Part, and Jonathan stayed behind to secure the mansion. Speedwagon wanted to help, but was forcibly sent to retrieve the rest of the Saint Corpse Parts. While a recovered Jonathan and Jotaro get acquainted, Mariah appears, shortly followed by Zeppeli, who is revived and now under the influence of the era's strange phenomenon. Jonathan sees no other choice than to fight his master, despite not being completely recovered. Still, he and Jotaro manage to defeat Zeppeli and Mariah, who escape. Speedwagon passes his Saint Corpse Part on to Jonathan, who then collapses due to exhaustion. Speedwagon brings him to Mr.President so he can rest.
Chapter 5: Battle Tendency (戦闘潮流 Sentō Chōryū)
Jotaro arrives at Air Supplena Island along with Joseph, who tells him about the island, and how they hope to get helpful information there. Upon seeing Caesar, along with his younger self, Joseph realizes they had gone back to 1938. Caesar and the young Joseph meet Jotaro and the old Joseph with some mistrust, when Lisa Lisa appears and attacks Caesar. Stroheim appears afterwards, under the influence of a strange phenomenon like Lisa Lisa, and tells Joseph that "his" power brought him back to life, more powerful than before. Joseph decides to fight them, along with a hesitating Caesar. After they are defeated, Stroheim flees, but Lisa Lisa, left barely conscious, is brought back to normal by Jotaro. As Caesar takes her inside to rest, the young Joseph, still not knowing he is talking to his older self, manages to sense his Ripple by touching his shoulder. The old Joseph is reluctant to tell his younger self they are one and the same, but Jotaro practically forces him to come clean. Joseph tells his younger self that they are travelling through time, and has Speedwagon, the younger Speedwagon from 19th century come out to prove his point. As the young Joseph recovers from the shock of these revelations, Jotaro senses someone else coming: it is Hol Horse, who confronts Jotaro for the Saint Corpse Parts. He is, however, defeated, and after withholding information on "him" when asked by Jotaro, disappears like the others, before Caesar comes out, incensed. The younger Joseph tries to calm him down by making up a story about them being acquaintances of his when, suddenly, Esidisi, Wamuu and Kars appear, having trailed the Red Stone of Aja to an island next to Air Supplena and had made a stopgap. Wamuu asked to have his promised rematch with Joseph, but Kars instead sends vampires to attack the heroes. With the vampires defeated, Kars allows Wamuu to fight Joseph, and sends Esidisi along with him, so the young Joseph and Caesar fight them together. When they manage to prevail over the two Pillar Men, Kars decides to take matters into his hands and fight them on the others' stead, since their priority is still the Red Stone of Aja. Even though Kars has been defeated, the old Joseph recognizes that the power of their Ripple is still not enough to take out the Pillar Men, when Lisa Lisa, recovered, decides to fight off the Pillar Men. Both iterations of Joseph observes she hasn't completely recovered and would be defeated for sure, until the old Joseph tackles the situation by bluffing Kars with knowledge of the Red Stone of Aja. After a lengthy "team talk" in which the young Joseph nearly blurts out his older self's identity, the old Joseph convinces the Pillar Men to give Joseph and Caesar six days to prepare for their final battle. They leave, but not before Esidisi expresses his desire to test out the old Joseph's Ripple in battle. When Lisa Lisa asks for the old Joseph's identity, he convinces them all to enter Mr.President so he can explain himself better. Left alone, Jotaro senses another Saint Corpse Part, and lets the young Joseph out so he can safeguard it.
Chapter 6: Stone Ocean (ストーンオーシャン Sutōn Ōshan)
When Jotaro arrives, the first thing he notices is how the ground appears to be turned on its side: he is in the Cape Canaveral USAF Station after C-Moon used its powers to change the gravitational pull, in 2011. Looking further, he spots Jolyne and Emporio talking about Pucci's newfound powers and how she doesn't plan to get away from him when Jotaro approaches them. They are both relieved to see him alive and well, but Jolyne instantly realizes something's off when she sees her father looking about 20 years younger. Jotaro ponders about this, when they are approached by Ermes and Anasui, who are affected by this age's strange phenomenon, and so Jotaro joins Jolyne in fighting them. After the fight, Jotaro manages to heal both Ermes and Anasui with his Saint Corpse Part. When Anasui starts to get jealous of Jotaro, Jolyne ends up telling everyone he's her father, even though he is 20 years younger and has traveled from the past, surprising even the teenage Jotaro. Not wanting to bother with explanations, he asks Joseph, who by this point is starting to get annoyed, to get Jolyne and her friends up to speed. Ermes, Anasui and Emporio follow Joseph into Mr. President, but Jolyne stays behind long enough to spot a phenomenon-possessed Weather Report. Once he is defeated, he disappears, and Pucci comes out to confront Jotaro and Jolyne along with Pet Shop. Pucci explains that "his friend" has shown him a greater truth than the path to Heaven he once sought, and now he strives to achieve this truth; in order to do so, he must defeat Jotaro and Jolyne, body and soul. He, however, ends up defeated, but regardless explains that he has found the true path to heaven and intends to guide the people of the world to eternal bliss through this path, which he calls "Eyes of Heaven". As he and Pet Shop leave, Pucci warns Jotaro that once all Saint Corpse Parts are gathered, that is when "his friend" will draw open the curtains to Heaven. Jotaro is left to think about how Pucci could be the cause of the strange phenomena, and what the "truth" he mentioned could be, as his Saint Corpse Part starts resonating. The sixth Saint Corpse Part is found and entrusted to Jolyne. While departing to Morioh, the heroes are unaware that Funny Valentine is watching them from the shadow. After taking a detour to 1999 Morioh to pick up a report of Rohan's notes on the phenomena, Jotaro finds himself unable to exit Morioh through the light rift. Speedwagon observes that the rift built a protective wall around itself, and only someone "qualified" can get through. At that moment, one of the Saint Corpse Parts resonates amongst all the JoJos assembled there, which is quickly revealed to be Josuke's, followed by Jonathan's, meaning they are the only ones who can cross the rift to the next era, while the rest stays at Morioh. Feeling a bit bothered, Jolyne decides to go for a walk, stopping at the Cafe Deux Magots, where she meets Daniel J. D'Arby, who tries to goad Jolyne into a wager. Seeing that she has seen through his loaded deck, he tries a game of heads and tails. D'Arby then appears to digress by talking about Jolyne's star birthmark, until he mentions "Eyes of Heaven" just as he tosses his coin, and it lands on tails, as he had called before. Jotaro arrives too late to warn Jolyne about D'Arby, as Osiris steals her soul immediately afterwards. Jotaro then finds out that D'Arby's coin is loaded, with tails on both faces. Determined not to be humiliated again, D'Arby challenges Jotaro to poker, with Jolyne's soul on the line; Jotaro ups the ante by wagering his own soul as well. As before, Jotaro manages to win by calling D'Arby's bluffs and eroding his composure, thus restoring Jolyne's soul to her. Before disappearing, D'Arby warns Jotaro that "his" power is not to be trifled with, but "he" will fight if confronted. Jotaro deduces that it has something to do with "overwriting the truth", having put together the hints that were dropped earlier by Enya and Pucci, and has a hunch of who could have such a power.
Chapter 7: Steel Ball Run (スティール・ボール・ラン Sutīru Bōru Ran)
Jonathan finds himself alone in the 1890's U.S.A. of the alternate timeline, in a Costline. He looks around and sees Johnny, kneeling to the ground, next to a Saint Corpse Part. As Jonathan tries to approach him, Valentine appears before Johnny, apparently unharmed after taking the full power of Johnny's Golden Rotation. Valentine explains that someone interrupted their fight and it went unfinished, then turns his attention to Jonathan. He tells him to continue gathering the Corpse Parts, and warns him that, when all are gathered, the true battle will start, before vanishing. Johnny then notices the Corpse Part that was next to him is gone, while Jonathan uses his Ripple to heal Slow Dancer's wounded leg. He then asks Johnny about the Parts, showing his own, when Johnny, in despair, almost accuses Jonathan of being a thief, before straightening out his thoughts and allowing Jonathan to tell him about the quest for the Saint Corpse Parts and all that happened so far. Johnny accepts to help Jonathan because he, too, is searching for the Parts. They depart through the light rift to a village in the Rocky Mountains, where Johnny spots a prowling dinosaur (a villager transformed by Scary Monsters) and brings Jonathan into hiding with him. Johnny thinks it is weird, because he saw Diego dying at the New Jersey Railway. Jonathan tells Johnny that he had met Diego before, and Johnny deduces he is using the dinosaurs to look for the Saint Corpse Parts. They decide to leave to gather the Parts, when Diego appears and summons his dinosaurs to stop the Joestars. They, however, manage to defeat the creatures, and Dio joins Diego, warning that he will be the one to take out Jonathan, as is his fate, while Diego takes it upon himself to deal with Johnny. After they are defeated and leave, Valentine reappears, bringing along a phenomenon-possessed Gyro. Johnny refuses to believe this, as Valentine goads him into powering his Stand up to the fullest. Johnny and Jonathan manage to defeat Gyro and Valentine, and Johnny's attempts to get to Gyro are in vain, as he escapes, still influenced by the phenomenon. Valentine, then, praises Johnny's potential, but tells them about Giorno's power, which is expected to be on par with "his". After he leaves, Jonathan's Corpse Part resonates, indicating the presence of another Part, which is entrusted to Johnny, who laments the losses in his life. Jonathan sympathizes with him, then tries to cheer him up by saying that, with the Corpse Parts, they may be able to fight off the strange phenomena and save his friends.
Chapter 8: JoJolion (ジョジョリオン JoJorion)
Josuke, in the meantime, is sent to the Higashikata Family Estate, at Morioh of the alternate timeline, only noticing Jonathan is not with him after taking in his surroundings. In the distance he spots Joshu and the alternate Josuke. Joshu is, as usual, whining how Josuke is always getting the best of him, until Josuke spots an abnormal purple energy swirling behind Joshu, and soon engulfing him. Knowing what that means, Josuke-Prime decides to act fast. As he attempts to explain the situation to Alt-Josuke, Joshu stands up, the corruption fueling his resentment; Josuke-Prime quickly joins Alt-Josuke to take on him, and they defeat him handily, despite their mutual lack of familiarity with Joshu's own Stand, Nut King Call. Josuke-Prime heals Joshu with his Saint Corpse Part, but knocks him down again when he starts to get confrontational, thinking he hasn't been healed. Alt-Josuke recognizes the Corpse Part, and Josuke-Prime fills him in on their quest. Having seen the Saint Corpse Part he had heard about, Alt-Josuke accepts to lend his help, as Josuke-Prime feels they are being watched. The one who was observing them reveals himself: it's Yoshikage Kira, joined by another Kira, this one impersonating Kosaku Kawajiri. The combined power of both Josuke manages to bring both Kira down, and they disappear expressing their desire for a "peaceful life" and, as such, the Saint Corpse Parts do not matter to them. After they leave, Joshu wakes up, not remembering what happened, but shocked all the same. Then Josuke-Prime's Saint Corpse Part starts resonating, indicating another Part nearby, which is found and entrusted to Alt-Josuke. When Alt-Josuke accepts to join the quest for the Corpse Parts, Joshu also decides he wants to tag along.
Chapter 9: Wicked Star (凶星 Kyōsei)
At the prime universe Morioh, Speedwagon and Jotaro are waiting for Jonathan and Josuke to return, the former worried about his friend. Jonathan reappears along with Johnny, shortly followed by both Josuke and Joshu. Speedwagon then assembles the JoJos to review which Corpse Parts they have:
- Jonathan has the eyes;
- the young Joseph, the ears;
- Jotaro, the torso;
- Josuke, the left arm;
- Giorno, the head;
- Jolyne, the right arm;
- Johnny, the legs;
- and Alt-Josuke, the heart.
Speedwagon then wonders where the final part could be. Giorno then remembers that, when Bucciarati and Fugo escaped, they were enveloped in lights similar to those of the Saint Corpse Parts before disappearing, and wonders if there could be any connection. Suddenly, Enya appears, taunting the Joestars about how they will never find the final Corpse Part, the vertebral spine, which "he" had already seized. She says that they are destined to be slaughtered and have the Corpse Parts stolen away, but as "he" cannot be bothered with that, she will take it upon herself to eliminate them, by attacking along with her zombies. Despite being outraged for her defeat, Enya says she had fulfilled her duties to investigate on them and leaves. Suddenly, everything starts trembling, and the reality around them gets distorted: the Joestars are all transported to some sort of celestial ocean. A figure approaches them, stating that the gathered Corpse Parts reacted with the Corpse's spine and sent them to that place, which he dubs "The Foundation of the World". Jotaro's hunch is confirmed as the one speaking to them is none other than DIO, looking much different than before, with a whitish skin and longer hair. Johnny charges forward, hoping that defeating DIO will bring Gyro back, but DIO's significantly powered-up The World easily repels his attack with Tusk Act 4, but just before he can attack Johnny, Giorno has Gold Experience Requiem stop the attack and, while he is repelled, Jotaro lands a blow with Star Platinum. DIO uses his godlike healing factor to roll with the punch and knocks Johnny, Jotaro and Giorno away at the same time. DIO then uses the Saint Corpse's spine to draw the other Parts to him, absorbing them into himself, and amplifying his power even further. Before DIO can eliminate the Joestars, however, light rifts appear at their feet. As they escape, DIO realizes there is still one part of the corpse missing - the one that Jotaro kept with himself. DIO is annoyed that, even in the universal interference world he created, he must be the one to deal with Jotaro, considering him as his potential threat and the Joestar Groups' last hope. He then asks Enya to give Corpse Parts to his underlings so they can pursue Jotaro and the others. Finally, DIO contemplates how, once he has the last Corpse Part in his possession, he will orchestrate the extinction of the Joestars with his Stand, The World Over Heaven.
Chapter 10: The Bet for the Corpse Parts (遺体を賭けたゲーム Itai o Kaketa Gēmu)
The Joestars reappear at Air Supplena. Johnny is angered that his attack could not do a thing to DIO. Giorno states that he could feel as if The World Over Heaven had nullified Gold Experience Requiem's momentum, and had never seen anything like it. At that point, Valentine appears and challenges Jotaro to a fight, as he wants to witness the power of Star Platinum. After the fight, Valentine has figured out that Star Platinum and The World are the same type of Stands, even after the Stands evolving, much like Jotaro's adult-self from 11 years in the future (Pt. 4), which is why DIO could not take Jotaro's Corpse Part. He explains that his goal had always been gathering the Corpse Parts, but Johnny had captured him with his Infinite Rotation technique, so he used D4C to escape to a parallel Earth which, incidentally, was very similar to the main Earth - except that, in that parallel Earth, DIO was not defeated by Jotaro; instead, the opposite happened, and DIO evolved his Stand to the maximum as he ruled the world. Valentine then tried to bring DIO over to destroy Johnny, but his Stand was too overwhelmingly powerful; his ambition far more dangerous than he anticipated. Realizing that the world he ruled was one of many, DIO decided to invade the main world so he could conquer it. Valentine then confesses that he wishes to defeat DIO; he pretended to be loyal and help him invade the original universe, while seeking someone who could defeat him, and found that someone in Jotaro. Valentine, himself, could not figure out any secret behind the power of The World Over Heaven, but he noticed how DIO could not steal the Corpse Part held by Jotaro, and realized that could not have been a coincidence. He says that he does not want the Corpse Parts for the power to invade worlds, but for the prosperity of his country and its citizens, but he alone cannot avoid DIO's conquering march over the United States, as well as the rest of the world. He states that finding the secret to DIO's power is the key to defeat him, and only Jotaro can do that. He then gives DIO's plan away, telling the Joestars to recover the stolen Corpse Parts so they can turn the tables. Valentine helps Joseph to confirms that when the same subjects/objects from different timelines within the same world have met and touched each other, it did not affect the collide explosion effects, after Valentine demonstrates the effects between his gun and his counterpart's gun which was stolen by Johnny. Lastly, Valentine points out that while DIO was defeated in the main world, there are still his mortal remains. He explains that when something from a world meets the same thing from another world, they extinguish each other. DIO's case is different, though, since he no longer exists in the main world. Jotaro points out that he left DIO's dead body under the sun to burn away, and was sure nothing was left of him, but Valentine replies there are some of missing remains of DIO in the place where he was defeated by Jotaro on the bridge of Cairo. After a brief demonstration of his and Johnny's guns colliding and effectively destroying each other, Valentine decides to end the conversation, leaving the Joestars to decide whether to believe him or not, but hoping they will make the right decision. Johnny remains reticent about not trusting Valentine, and Speedwagon wants to figure out an explanation for DIO's powers, but Jonathan reminds them they now have to retrieve the Saint Corpse Parts. Giorno then asks Johnny whether he felt DIO's counterattack repelling Tusk, and Johnny says it was more like he nullified his attack. Giorno says that he felt DIO's Stand similar to Gold Experience Requiem, but with an opposite power: in the fight, he sensed that DIO used his power to "overwrite the truth" of their attacks getting through to him. Speedwagon dismisses the notion, stating that this would make it impossible to beat DIO, but Jonathan says he will fight all the same, if only to figure out DIO's weak spot. The others also give their reasons to fight, concluding with Jotaro offering four good reasons to fight: to retrieve the Saint Corpse Parts, bring back the friends he had been manipulating, find out the secret to his power so he can be defeated... and because he's getting tired of DIO.
Afterwards, Jotaro heads for Morioh-Prime, as he would likely find a Corpse Part holder there. He soon finds D'Arby back at the Cafe Deux Magots. He goes to propose him a gamble. If D'Arby wins, Jotaro lets him take his soul along with his Corpse Part; if Jotaro wins, D'Arby will have to surrender his Part and tell him the secret of DIO's Stand. D'Arby gets nervous for a moment, but says that the detailed knowledge of DIO's power is far away from him; however, he accepts to wager a "name". Jotaro manages to defeat him again, and D'Arby, after surrendering his Corpse Part (the left arm), gives Pucci's name as the only one who knows about DIO's power, as his right-hand man. He also reveals that DIO's power has one thing in common with his Stand: they both have a relation with souls. While D'Arby collects souls for fun, DIO needs souls to manifest his power. Jotaro muses whether that has any relation to DIO's notes that he burned after destroying him. D'Arby then suggests that Jotaro look for Pucci, since he has no more information than what he has just said.
The next stop is the village in the Rockies in the parallel world, where Okuyasu and Stroheim appear before Jotaro. They both challenge him for his Corpse Parts, but the young Joseph and Josuke-Prime soon appear to even the odds. With both of them defeated, Jotaro manages to heal them with his Corpse Part, just as Will Zeppeli and Gyro show up to battle. Sure enough, Jonathan and Johnny appear to take matters into their hands. Once defeated, they too are healed, and Jotaro retrieves the Corpse's heart while Jonathan explains the situation to the others, who accept to join the heroes.
Jotaro then travels back to the 1988 Cairo, right at the bridge where he defeated DIO. There he finds DIO's bracelets and, remembering what Valentine said about the same things from different worlds between the living, and the dead's corpse/remains coming together will be dead instantly, wonders that they might be useful.
Next, at the Naples Station, Jotaro is challenged by Bucciarati, when Giorno, Mista, Trish and Narancia all step up to battle him. Bucciarati is also defeated and healed, and Jotaro retrieves the Saint Corpse's ears. When Giorno explains to him the situation, Bucciarati asks to be allowed to help.
The next stop in the trip through time is at the Green Dolphin Street Prison, where Yukako appears to challenge Jotaro. Koichi is brought out along with his friends. Josuke-Prime is worried about Koichi, but the boy assures him that he will fight to save Yukako. They manage to defeat her and bring her back to her senses, when Josuke-Prime senses someone else coming: it is the two Kira, stating that they do not really care for DIO's mission, but are there to have their revenge on Josuke and his friends. They are defeated, but swear this is not the end, and they will come back to kill each and every one of the heroes if they dare disturb their "tranquility" again. After they leave, Jotaro recovers the Corpse's right arm the Kira left behind, while Koichi fills Yukako in on what has been happening so far.
At the rebuilt Joestar Mansion, Pucci informs DIO that Jotaro has managed to retrieve half of the Corpse Parts he entrusted to his "pawns", and brought a number of them back to normal. DIO is not worried, because the Saint Corpse is influenced by its owner, which may cause its spiritual strength to grow bigger, and the Parts are simply means to an end. What is important at the moment are "the souls of more than 36 sinners". He states that the criminals that turned their back to heaven are influenced by the Joestar bloodline, and may eventually stand against him. This is why he will have to absorb these sinners' souls, to uphold his conviction of conquering the world. Pucci then tells DIO that "he" was found as one of the sinners. DIO says he will deal with him and starts to leave, when Pucci asks him, in case those souls weren't worth sacrificing, if he would do away with him. DIO answers affirmatively and leaves. Left alone, Pucci asks those who would hinder their way to Heaven to protect their souls.
Chapter 11: The Man Who Desired Heaven (天国を望んだ男 Tengoku o Nozonda Otoko)
The next stop in the quest to retrieve the Saint Corpse Parts is the Boing-Boing Cape in Morioh, where Shigechi and Otoishi instantly appear to challenge Jotaro, Josuke-Prime and Okuyasu. After they are defeated and healed, Weather Report appears and is confronted by Jolyne and Anasui. Like the others, he is brought back to his senses once beaten. Jotaro then retrieves the Saint Corpse's head.
In the meantime, Valentine appears in 1988 Cairo, very tired after trying to escape through multiple parallel worlds. He is suddenly brought before DIO, who has heard that Valentine told the Joestars about his power, and asks if he is planning a way to defeat him. After a long time of hesitation, Valentine speaks up and says that what he wants is justice, and attacks DIO, who simply uses The World Over Heaven to erase Valentine from existence.
Back to the heroes, they head to the Colosseum next. At first, nothing seems to be happening, but then Giorno and the others sense that time had been subtly accelerated, and they come to one conclusion: they came within range of King Crimson, Diavolo's Stand. Diavolo shows up, revealing his intention of defeating Giorno first. Defeated, Diavolo surrenders his Corpse Part (the legs) and leaves.
Returning to Air Supplena, the group is confronted by Diego and Dio, who are defeated again and flee. Before Jotaro can take another step, Avdol and Iggy appear before him to fight, so Joseph, Kakyoin and Polnareff are brought out to bring their friends back to normal. Once Avdol and Iggy are defeated, they too are freed from DIO's control with the power of Jotaro's Saint Corpse Part. While Joseph decides to tell Avdol the whole story later, Polnareff takes the time to get friendly with Iggy who, invariably, attacks him.
Next, Jotaro heads for the Joestar Mansion, where Pucci is waiting. Pucci already knows what Jotaro is going to ask him, and says that there is nothing they can do against DIO's power, going on to say that those foolish enough to oppose him will face Heaven's judgement, as zombies come out to attack. Once they are dealt with, Jotaro asks if Pucci will come and fight, to which the priest says they are in a place of destiny, as it was in the Joestar Mansion where everything began. There DIO showed him his destiny: a higher path to Heaven to walk on and to guide people through, and he will demonstrate the Heaven he is aiming for to those before him now. That is the "truth", and those who receive it will receive bliss, thus the "Eyes of Heaven" he seeks are a plan for the people's salvation. However, Jotaro doesn't care for this, and seeing it would be a waste of time to pry DIO's secrets from Pucci, he decides to show him his own power instead. Despite being defeated, Pucci knows that the young Jotaro will summon older Joseph to uses Hermit Purple to find the weakness of DIO's new form in which Pucci knows inside his memories, and says that he feels a strange tranquility, because DIO is close to the next step in his goal: the souls of 36 sinners are those of the very expanded Joestar group; DIO intends to offer them as his sacrifices. He says that in the world's current state, each person has only one soul, but wonders what if they could have more, and what would happen. After proclaiming his love for DIO, Pucci then commits suicide by letting himself fall to his death, impaled on the Love Goddess' statue, thus preventing the heroes from finding DIO's weakness. Even with this setback, Jotaro proceeds to retrieve the Saint Corpse's eyes.
Chapter 12: The World Over Heaven (ザー・ワールド・オーバーヘブン Zā Wārudo Ōbā Hebun)
The JoJos and Speedwagon return to Egypt to confront Heaven Ascension DIO in order to stop him. Jotaro and Jolyne face DIO in battle where he demonstrates his power, including the ability to turn Jolyne against Jotaro. Jotaro defeats DIO, but proves that his real motive was to mark Coco Jumbo with The World Over Heaven, thus obtaining it and thus all of those inside the turtle. The rest go forth into other worlds to face an ally once again in three different battles, but its all a ploy for DIO to separate the other JoJos from Jotaro and Jolyne, thus absorbing theirs and all the other souls as well as the Saint Corpse Parts. Further empowered, DIO rewrites the universe to his own liking, but Jotaro and Jolyne remain in the way. After a final showdown, DIO likewise takes the soul Jolyne in order to deal with Jotaro on his own. However remembering Funny Valentine's instructions about two beings between living and deaths' corpse/remains, or both non-living objects/corpses from alternate universes not being able to exist simultaneously, he uses DIO's armlets, which fuses with him and seals off his hands, the source of using The World Over Heaven. Pissed off, Heaven Ascension DIO tries to attack but Jotaro already saw it coming and pummels him, once again stating that he only did it because DIO pissed him off.
After defeating Heaven Ascension DIO, all of the timelines and realities are restored and Jotaro returns to meeting Joseph and a fully healed Polnareff. They're informed that Kakyoin, Avdol and Iggy are resting in Cairo hospital, as Jotaro realizes that he's in the new timeline which gives him and his allies a sense of deja vu, having prevented their deaths in the previous timeline. After visiting the previously deceased, Jotaro, Joseph and Polnareff return to the airport, where Jotaro and Joseph head back home, while Polnareff stays in Egypt to take care of their allies after the end of another bizarre adventure. After Jotaro and Joseph depart to Japan and promise to return to Egypt to visit their friends after a full recovery, the scene ends with Kakyoin, Avdol and Iggy resting in a Cairo hospital.
After the credits are shown, a photo montage shows events that happen in the JoJo universe as a result of the new timeline:
- Jonathan Joestar facing against Dio Brando with a surviving William Anthonio Zeppeli at Robert E. O. Speedwagon's side watching on.
- Joseph Joestar and a surviving Caesar Anthonio Zeppeli facing against Wamuu and a surviving Esidisi together at the Skeleton Heel Stone.
- Josuke Higashikata, Koichi Hirose, Okuyasu Nijimura hanging together with a surviving Shigekiyo Yangu with the real Kosaku Kawajiri walking by the group.
- Giorno Giovanna as the new boss of Passione with all members of Bucciarati's Gang at his side.
- Jolyne Cujoh shown together with Ermes Costello, Emporio Alniño, Narciso Anasui, Weather Report, and a middle-aged Jotaro Kujo.
- Johnny Joestar with Gyro Zeppeli against the alternate Diego Brando.
- Alt-Josuke together with Joshu Higashikata, seemingly getting along.
- Jotaro and Joseph reuniting with Jean Pierre Polnareff, Muhammad Avdol, Noriaki Kakyoin, and Iggy at the airport.
Epilogue: 11 years after the events of the game (after Pt. 3's new timeline), Koichi Hirose encounters an incredibly tall man arriving in Morioh town escorting his daughter. He decided to bring her along because she kept throwing tantrums. After she runs off to look at a turtle, the tall man asks Koichi about the location of Josuke Higashikata...
Dual Heat Attacks
Dual Heat Attacks (デュアルヒートアタック Dyuaru Hīto Attaku, DHA) are cinematic team combo specials that can be activated once the Dual Heat Gauge is filled in a match. Its activation sound effect is similar to the Time Stop sound effect from All-Star Battle.
Most DHA's consist of the secondary player attacking briefly, followed by the player who initiated the attack performing a cinematic move reminiscent of an HHA or GHA from All-Star Battle.
Some specific character combinations, however, have their own unique name and cinematic animations, usually recreating scenes from the manga or completely new scenarios. Teams with these types of DHA's are listed below:
- "Here comes my Hamon!" (例の波紋でいくか Rei no Hamon de Iku ka, lit. Let Us Use That Aforementioned Ripple) Jonathan Joestar & William Anthonio Zeppeli: The two of them attack the opponent's head, sequentially with a Ripple-charged Zoom Punch from Jonathan and a Sendo Wave Kick from Zeppeli, before they charge up and run up to the opponent and unleash a double Sendo Ripple Overdrive-enhanced Zoom Punch into them, the two reciting the phrase commonly associated with Overdrives.
- "Dual Hamon!" (ふたつの波紋 Futatsu no Hamon, lit. Double Ripple) Joseph Joestar & Caesar Anthonio Zeppeli: The two start off by attacking the opponent from opposite sides with a series of Ripple-charged punches and kicks from Joseph and an array of Ripple-infused bubbles from Caesar, before Joseph invites Caesar to initiate the Positive/Negative Overdrive they used on Suzi Q to save her from from Esidisi's control, attacking the enemy from both sides with said move and shocking them with extreme power.
- "This master and student's beat will cut you deep!" (刻むぜ師弟のビート Kizamu ze Shitei no Bīto, lit. Etch With the Beat of the Teacher and Student) Joseph Joestar & Lisa Lisa: Running up to the opponent, Lisa Lisa strikes with multiple Ripple-powered kicks and scarf swing, before Joseph ties up the opponent with a rope he had laid during her assault. They then channel a Ripple surge into the Red Stone of Aja, causing it to launch a deadly beam at the helpless opponent.
- "Use the edge of the ring—just like sumo." (土俵際のかけひき Dohyōgiwa no Kakehiki, lit. Sumo Tactics) Jotaro Kujo & Noriaki Kakyoin: Kakyoin holds the opponent in place with Hierophant Green, allowing Jotaro and Star Platinum to pull them in by Hierophant Green's tail and unleash a barrage of punches that sends them flying. Kakyoin appears once more behind the enemy mid-air to deliver an Emerald Splash. Throughout the whole attack, Jotaro and Kakyoin converse about Sumo, referencing the events in the Wheel of Fortune chapters.
- "Let's put the final nail in the coffin." (いくぜダメ押し Iku ze Dameoshi, lit. Let's Finish It) Jotaro Kujo & Jean Pierre Polnareff: Jotaro and Polnareff summon Star Platinum and Silver Chariot to take turns attacking the opponent. Star Platinum follows with an uppercut, and the two of them begin yelling out their Stand Cries ("ORAORAORA!" and "HORAHORAHORA!") while pummeling and stabbing the opponent, respectively. This attack references how they defeat Alessi in Chapter 209.
- "It's not cheating if the secret doesn't get out!" (バレなきゃイカサマじゃあない Barenakya Ikasama jaa Nai, lit. It's Not Cheating If You Don't Get Caught) Jotaro Kujo & Old Joseph Joestar: Joseph jumps into the air and tries to snare the opponent with Hermit Purple, only to miss. Briefly shocked and emoting his iconic "OH MY GOD!" as Jotaro expresses disappointment, he drops the facade to reveal that he had tied the opponent with a rope during his previous attack, subsequently sending a Ripple current through the rope to shock them as Jotaro and Star Platinum move in to barrage them into submission.
- "Double Bind!" (Old Joseph Joestar & Muhammad Avdol): Avdol fires an attack from Magician's Red that surrounds the opponent before Joseph strikes them with a Ripple-empowered Hermit Purple over his wrist throwing them into the air; they both capture the opponent with their respective abilities, before coming together and firing their Stands at the opponent overhead as they're burnt using a combination of the Ripple and Magician's Red's fire.
- "Flame Rapier" (炎のレイピア Honō no Reipia, lit. Flame Rapier) Jean Pierre Polnareff & Muhammad Avdol: Avdol binds the opponent with Red Bind, then Magician's Red sets fire to Silver Chariot's rapier. Polnareff thanks him as Silver Chariot assaults the trapped enemy with its red-hot blade and activates an explosion when the rush ends.
- "Mad Dance of Sand and Swords" (Jean Pierre Polnareff & Iggy): Polnareff calls for Iggy's assistance only to turn around and see him taking a nap; Angry, Polnareff furiously attacks the opponent with Silver Chariot and jumps into the air, before Iggy ultimately joins him as the two deliver a finishing blow with their Stands diving through.
- "Hey, are we gonna do this, or what?" (おい、やんのかよ Oi Yanno kayo, lit. Hey, Do You Wanna Fight?) Josuke Higashikata & Okuyasu Nijimura: Okuyasu has The Hand bring their opponent closer by eliminating a wide space in front of them, leaving them staggered. After Josuke and Okuyasu briefly and excitedly share comments, The Hand and Crazy Diamond pummel their target with a dual Stand barrage followed by a joint uppercut that sends them high into the air.
- "Dorara Rush ×2" (ドララのラッシユ×2 Dorara no Rasshu Kakeru Ni, lit. Dorara's Rush×2) Josuke Higashikata & Koichi Hirose: Koichi has Echoes ACT2 place SFX of Crazy Diamond's Stand Cry ("DORARARA!!") directly under the opponent's feet. He then prompts Josuke to attack, watching as he jumps high into the air until he is directly above the opponent. Crazy Diamond then punches the opponent from above as the SFX activates, creating artificially-made fists to attack the opponent from both sides.
- "I really hate this guy…" (スゲー嫌いだよ、こいつ… Sugē Kirai dayo Koitsu…, lit. I Really Hate This Guy…) Josuke Higashikata & Rohan Kishibe: Rohan uses Heaven's Door to write within the opponent "Your Body Will Fly Forwards at 70 km/hr" as he begins to tell Josuke something; revealing soon after that he hates him. The opponent is sent flying at Josuke in an attempt to cause a collision, forcing him to use Crazy Diamond to pummel them away.
- "We're best friends!" (僕たちは親友 Boku-tachi wa Shin'yū, lit. We Are Close Friends) Koichi Hirose & Rohan Kishibe: Koichi uses Echoes 3 Freeze to make the opponent heavier, then Rohan uses Heaven's Door to write in the opponent "Weight will increase 10-fold" causing the opponent to slam and sink into the ground with enough force to create a crater.
- "Invincible Heroine" (無敵のヒロイン Muteki no Hiroin) Koichi Hirose & Yukako Yamagishi: Koichi uses 3 Freeze to make the opponent heavier, then Yukako wraps the opponent in her hair before flinging them around. Despite the increased weight of the opponent, she begins slamming them into the ground three times before raising them extremely high up into the air and launching them into the ground one more time hard enough for them to bounce whilst still effected by ACT3 Freeze.
- "Double Arrivederci" (ダブルアリーヴェデルチ Daburu Arīvederutchi, lit. Double Arrivederci) Giorno Giovanna & Bruno Bucciarati: Bucciarati has Sticky Fingers punch the opponent away, before placing a Zipper on the ground, using it to move him and Giorno close to opponent, before they leap into the air. The two inform the opponent of their resolve in unison before Gold Experience and Sticky Fingers pummel their target and letting out their Stand Cries. The two Stands glow with golden and blue auras, respectively, followed by a joint uppercut that sends the opponent high into the air.
- "True preparation!!" (『覚悟』とは!! Kakugo to wa!, lit. This Is "Resolve"!!) Giorno Giovanna & Guido Mista: Mista unloads an entire clip at the opponent, each bullet getting redirected by Sex Pistols multiple times to hit them at different angles. Giorno subsequently appears from behind and jumps high into the air until he is directly above the opponent, proceeding to stomp down on them several times with Gold Experience, the final kick hitting with the impact to launch him off and create a shockwave. Both attacks are references to their battle against Ghiaccio
- "I'm gonna send you flying!" (Narancia Ghirga & Guido Mista): Mista unloads an entire clip at the opponent, each bullet getting redirected by Sex Pistols multiple times to hit them at different angles; Narancia follows up by having Aerosmith unleash an extended barrage of machine-gun bullets into the opponent, spearing and carrying them into the air as it's ridden by Sex Pistols, ending by looping around to spear the opponent into the ground.
- "Two people, two short fuses!" (短気な2人 Tanki na Futari, lit. Two Short-Tempered People) Narancia Ghirga & Pannacotta Fugo: Purple Haze assaults the opponent, firing its Virus Capsules at them after sending them flying.

- "We're gonna beat your ass!" (あたしたちがぶちのめす Atashi-tachi ga Buchi no mesu, lit. We Will Beat Them Down!) Jolyne Cujoh & Ermes Costello: Ermes uses Kiss' stickers to create multiple arms for Jolyne and Stone Free. Having done so without warning, Ermes is reprimanded by Jolyne who knows that the stickers' removal will cause her pain. Ermes reminds Jolyne that they are in the middle of a fight, forcing Stone Free to angrily pummel the opponent with an extra set of fists and blowing them back as Ermes laughs.
- "The momentum's on our side!" (風はこちらへ吹いているわ! Kaze wa Kochira e Fuiteiru wa, lit. The Wind Is Blowing Here!) Jolyne Cujoh & Weather Report: Stone Free assaults the opponent as Weather Report creates an opposing gale that keeps the opponent in place.

Johnny Joestar & Gyro Zeppeli: The two riding on horses, Gyro throws a Steel Ball while Johnny shoots a fingernail into the opponent, both infused with the Super Spin. As a result, Ball Breaker and Tusk ACT4 punch and fly through the opponent's midsection as the power of the two Super Spins generate a massive energy explosion.
- "We're friends, right?" (Josuke Higashikata (JoJolion) & Joshu Higashikata): Josuke and Joshu discuss their "friendship" status as Soft & Wet delivers a punch that downs the opponent. Joshu runs to finish them off, not noticing a bubble that steals the ground's friction with Soft & Wet's ability, making him slip and spin out of control, stopping when he inevitably crashes into the downed opponent as Josuke humorously looks on.
- "The Sickest and the Strongest" (最凶と最強 Saikyō to Saikyō, lit. The Fiercest and the Strongest) Dio Brando & DIO: Dio freezes the opponent and attempts to unleash Space Ripper Stingy Eyes, quickly interrupted by DIO stopping time and pummeling them with The World into the air. DIO resumes time as to allow Dio to fire off the attack, tilting his head to the side to avoid getting hit and watches as the beams obliterate the frozen opponent.
- "Gotta be cool, at my age." (Josuke Higashikata & Old Joseph Joestar): Crazy Diamond pummels the target and sends them flying, before Old Joseph binds them with Hermit Purple, flinging them into an overhead ground slam. After launching the opponent into the air again, Old Joseph pulls them towards him and finishes them with a Ripple Overdrive chop to the abdomen.
- "Surpassing Existence!" (越えるべき存在 Koerubeki Sonzai, lit. There Should Be More Than This) Giorno Giovanna & DIO: DIO summons The World to batter the opponent, before being joined by Giorno and Gold Experience.

- "The Perfect Angle" (ちょっといい角度 Chotto Ii Kakudo, lit. The Best Angle) Jolyne Cujoh & Jotaro Kujo: Star Platinum and Stone Free send the opponent into the air with a dual uppercut, before Jolyne wraps them in a cocoon made of Stone Free's string.

- "Rulers of Time and Gravity" (時と重力の支配者 Toki to Jūryoku no Shihaisha, lit. The Rulers of Time and Gravity) New Moon Pucci & DIO: This DHA is only available with Pucci using Made in Heaven. DIO stops time and throws a barrage of knives. As time resumes, Pucci speeds up the knives' flight using Made in Heaven to make them hit their target with more power.

- The games' cover is an homage to the cover of the seventeenth volume of the series.
- A demo was presented at Jump Festa 2015 with 7 characters: Joseph Joestar, Caesar Zeppeli, Rudol von Stroheim, Jotaro Kujo, Noriaki Kakyoin, Josuke Higashikata and Diego Brando. It was released afterwards on PSN for PS4 only.
- Unlike the previous game, most of the pre-Part 4 character's voice actors, default color scheme and clothing match their anime counterparts.
- Some characters outside the anime, prior to Part 4's anime debut were also recast as a result of their voice actors being used in the anime.
- In an interview with CyberConnect2's boss, Hiroshi Matsuyama, he made a point in saying the game had no paid DLC or microtransactions.
- Another interview details the process that went into deciding what characters to feature in the game, with the developer saying that there were 120 characters put up for consideration and the list was gradually narrowed down to the 52 that made it into the game. Leone Abbacchio made it into beta testing, but there were difficulties in making Moody Blues viable in gameplay, particularly with how they planned on making it replay other characters' attacks. Ringo Roadagain, Tarkus, Bruford, various denizens of Morioh, and others were also considered as characters.
- Jotaro Kujo and his Part 4's self, Enrico Pucci and his New Moon form, Diego Brando and THE WORLD Diego cannot team up, presumably due to the characters not being involved around the storyline's chapters, unlike both Part 2/younger and Part 3/older Joseph Joestars, Dio Brando and his Part 3/DIO form/self, and Yoshikage Kira and his Kosaku Kawajiri disguise.
- In the Naples Station stage there is a sign displaying Araki's previous work, Gorgeous Irene.
- Originally Stroheim's default outfit was the Nazi uniform, with the cyborg one being his alternate. Over in the West, the Nazi costume has been completely removed, thus his default outfit is now the cyborg one.
- In Jean Pierre Polnareff's Ability Tree there is a typo saying Style Action: "Hermit Purple!" effect Time Extension when instead it should say "Off comes the Armor!"
- Lisa Lisa is listed as being born in 1988 in one of the Glossary entries, despite her being born around 1888.
