is an action video game for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 developed by CyberConnect2and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
It is the latest in a line of video games based on the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga series by Hirohiko Araki. Eyes of Heaven is the second game in the franchise to be developed by CyberConnect2, following 2013's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle. The game was released in Japan on December 17, 2015 and was released in Western territories on June 28, 2016.
The narrative, over-seen by Hirohiko Araki, takes place immediately following the events of Stardust Crusaders. Jotaro Kujoand his allies, who had just defeated the evil vampire DIO, are suddenly attacked by friends and enemies who have died along the way. It is then they are approached by a young Robert E.O. Speedwagon, who possesses a piece of the Saint's Corpse that allows him to travel through time and space as well as vanquish the evil influence possessing the others. He leads Jotaro and his allies on a journey through time, space, and alternate universes, in order to stop another iteration of DIO and his disciple Father Enrico Pucci from obtaining the other pieces of the Saint's Corpse in DIO's quest to finally be free of the Joestar family and achieve his own personal heaven. Characters from all 8 parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventureappear as Jotaro travels through time to meet his ancestor Jonathan Joestar, his grandfather Joseph Joestar while still in his youth, his younger uncle Josuke Higashikata, DIO's son but a Joestar nonetheless Giorno Giovanna, and his own daughter Jolyne Cujoh, while Jonathan and Josuke meet their alternate universe counterparts, the jockey Johnny Joestar and the John Doe only known as "Josuke Higashikata", respectively.
Eyes of Heaven is designed to be a 3D action brawler with tag-team elements 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. Certain match-ups contain special animations and dialogue between two characters, mostly between allies in the form of unique combination attacks such as the Dual Combos (デュアルコンボ Dyuaru Konbo) and Dual Heat Attacks (デュアルヒートアタック Dyuaru Hīto Attaku), though provide no discernable bonuses or advantages in battle. The playstyle is similar to that of other known CyberConnect2's Shonen Jump game series, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series, such as the combo mechanisms and the air to air combos. The game allows for online play through the PlayStation Network system.
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 German Engineering. 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 "German Engineering" (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 inEyes 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 attacks as well.
