- 3.808 out of 5 from 3,243 votes. One thing JoJo's is known for is its eccentric characters, and the OVA sadly flattens them down to nothing, with no development and little personality. It does okay with the little time it has, but not okay enough. The character designs are quite charming and I'm a fan of the art.

Jojo 1993 Game
Several video games based on Hirohiko Araki's long-running manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure have been released. The first was a titular role-playing video game, based on the third story arc, which was released in March 1993 for the Super Famicom. A fighting game for the arcade was also adapted from the third arc by Capcom on December 1, 1998, and also titled simply JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (released as JoJo's Venture in the west), with an updated version retitled JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future released later that year. The arcade game was ported to both the PlayStation and Dreamcast on October 14, 1999, and a high-definition version was released for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade on August 21, 2012. These fighting games were the first pieces of JoJo related media released in North America, exposing the characters to many western players for the first time.

A third Capcom game was based on Part 5, titled GioGio's Bizarre Adventure and released for the PlayStation 2 on July 25, 2002. This game was supposed to be released to western audiences, but never did and stayed in Japan. A game by Bandai, titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood, was released on October 26, 2006 for the PlayStation 2. The story is based on the first arc and features action/adventure gameplay, similar to GioGio's Bizarre Adventure. Araki has personally checked the quality of the game and its faithfulness to the original. At a July 5, 2012 press conference celebrating the 25th anniversary of JoJo, Araki himself announced JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, produced by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Games, it was released for the PlayStation 3.
Before the first JoJo game was released, Bandai released a Weekly Shōnen Jumpcrossover adventure game titled Famicom Jump: Hero Retsuden on February 15, 1989. Joseph Joestar from the second arc is one of the playable characters, while Santana and Speedwagon made cameo appearances. Its sequel Famicom Jump II: Saikyō no Shichinin, released on December 2, 1991, features Jotaro as a selectable character. Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin and Polnareff also appear in this game. Both games were available on the Famicom. Characters from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure were also featured in the 2005 Nintendo DSWeekly Shōnen Jump crossover game Jump Super Stars and its sequel Jump Ultimate Stars, including Jotaro Kujo and Dio Brando as playable characters.
In 2014 as the JoJo anime was being popularized, Bandai added Jonathan and Joeseph Joestar to the roster of J-Stars Victory Vs. Later on in 2019, 10 days before the launch of Jump Force, Jotaro and Dio from Part 3 were announced to be added to the roster of playable characters, with Dio only being playable on stages that had a nighttime theme. Giorno Giovanna is being added to the game as DLC, as revealed via a leak.
