Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: All-star battle is just around the corner, 8/29/13 for Japanese release.
Any other Jojo fans thinking of picking it up?
Pretty much decided to go ahead and get it day 1, since there are a ridiculous amount of characters already included, and it's not region locked. Though...
I'm somewhat conflicted, as there is clearly going to be A LOT of DLC characters added after release (there's still a great many fan-favorites that haven't been announced playable yet (but have been teased via hidden bits and pieces in various trailers)), and yet they haven't confirmed or denied that they're going to do a western release. It's been months since they last mentioned that they were looking into a possible western release with no further news.
Mostly I'd just like to be able to get the DLC characters without having to set-up a Japanese PSN account. (Currently the only known DLC is a collectors edition timed exclusive for the 1st Kira, the 2nd Kira was recently announced as already included, though has a different move set involving the upgraded Killer Queen and Stray Cat, instead of Shear Heart Attack).
I wouldn't care if they just made it or at least the DLC available under the imports section on PSN, completely unlocalized if necessary, just so I could use my current account for DLC purchases.
