Le Bizzarre Avventure di GioGio: Vento Aureo (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 黄金の旋風 JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Ōgon no Kaze?, lit. "GioGio's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind") is an action-adventure video game released in 2002 for the PlayStation 2, based on Vento Aureo.

Vento Aureo 's graphics may be compared to other cel-shaded games like Jet Set Radio. The developer, Capcom, utilized a game engine called "Artistoon" in order to create a graphical style similar to Araki's art style in the manga.

Gameplay

Most of Le Bizzarre Avventure di GioGio: Vento Aureo's gameplay takes place in the form of hand-to-hand combat. The Stands aid the characters in battle by giving them combat abilities, as well as special attacks. Puzzles are also a part of the game, requiring the use of Stands in order to solve them.

Game Modes

  1. Super Story Mode (SS Mode): You follow the journey of Bucciarati's Gang through Italy to confront Diavolo. There are cutscenes between stages and during some fights.
  2. Another Story: A secret mode that is unlocked when you complete Super Story Mode. In this mode you replay some of the fights of SS Mode, but now you can choose between 4 characters, which weren't originally on that stage. To unlock the fights the player must beat the same fight on Super Story with at least 150/200 Giogio points.
  3. Gallery: A Mode that has JoJo goodies based on how many JoJo points you have. This mode is not initially available and requires you to finish at least one SS Mode fight to unlock it. The Gallery contains extras such as soundtracks, Stage Viewer, Story Drama, concept art, images and characters models (for playable, unplayable and unused characters). The Gallery Mode is set inside the stand Mr.President.
  4. Options: Sound and control options.

Secret Factors

A main notable feature is the activation of Secret Factors, various interaction activated elements scattered throughout each scenario that the player progresses to as the game goes on. As the game itself is adapted nearly entirely from the manga, playing out the scenario akin to the official canon will activate these factors: Giving power-ups to health, Stand endurance, and strength to the character, and giving a high ranking upon winning the scenario. It is a unique feature that also celebrates its source material and rewards fans and readers of the series.

International Release

The game was set to be released worldwide on October 2002 and was presented at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2002, titled simply as GioGio's Bizarre Adventure. The release was eventually cancelled due to unknown reasons, the surmised culprit being copyright issues.

It would not be until All-Star Battle from CyberConnect2 and Bandai Namco that another JoJo game would see an international release, the first being Heritage for the Future, also a Capcom product.

Reception

On release Famitsu magazine scored the game a 31 out of 40.

Trivia

  • Polnareff's theme in the game is an orchestrated version of his theme from previous game, Heritage for the Future.
  • This is the first game in its time to feature every previous JoJo protagonist from parts 1 to 5 in some fashion, as Jonathan, Joseph (Part 3 appearance), Jotaro (Part 4 appearance) and Josuke appear as transparent visions above Giorno representing his inheriting their "golden spirit."
  • Some of the voice actors on GioGio PS2 return to provide their voices to other characters in All-Star Battle.
  • This game marks the second time anything related to Part 5 appears in other media. The first time was with Chariot Requiem's appearance on Polnareff's Level 3 super in Heritage for the Future.
  • Giorno had a different facial structure before the game's release.
  • This is currently the only game where Leone Abbacchio and Moody Blues is playable.
    • He was intended to be playable in Eyes of Heaven, but was deemed too difficult to make workable.
