At last, the “J-Stars Victory Vs+” release date is all set on June 30 and fans over in the Americas can’t wait to get their hands on this game.
Also, it seems like that would be the best course of action as this might be the last time fans will get their hands on an anime collaboration game.
According to Siliconera , “J-Stars Victory Vs+” was intended to commemorate the 45th anniversary of Shonen Jump.
Also, Producer Koji Nakajima said that it might be the last “J-Stars” game to be available for Western countries.
“Candidly speaking, we don’t have any plans currently for making more collaboration titles like this.
This is the first time we will release a big collaboration title in the West.
Hopefully some of that feedback can be implemented in the next projects we’re working on,” he said.
The director also went on to share what fans can expect in the American version in the game.
“It’s been one year since we released the game in Japan and we implemented some balance changes after getting fan feedback,” he said.
Asked what was modified in the “J-Stars Victory Vs.+” Western version, he said,.
“The revisions are pretty specific such as changing the combo sequence and how much knockback there is when characters get hit.
We didn’t make many major changes compared to the Japanese version.” Lastly, for the new features in the “J-Stars Victory Vs.+” Western version is Arcade mode.
Nakajima gives a brief summary of what this game mode is all about.
“We understand Western gamers expect to have more replay value, which is why we added Arcade mode exclusively for the West,” said Nakajima.
“There are many difficulty levels for this and what’s unique is depending on the difficulty level there are conditions such as only picking characters on your team who were from the ’80s or ’90s.”
