JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven won’t have paid DLC or microtransactions

In other words, it won't be like All-Star Battle.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

There won’t be any paid downloadable content or micro-transactions in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven, CyberConnect2 boss Hiroshi Matsuyama confirmed in the latest issue of Ultra Jump magazine.

“In this game, there won’t be any microtransactions or paid downloadable content,” Matsuyama said. “There might be downloadable content elements like stuff you’ll get as a first-run bonus maybe, but none of it is paid.”

One of the primary criticisms of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle for PlayStation 3 was the inclusion of microtranscations. Players were given a limited amount of Energy, which refilled over time. If you didn’t want to wait for it to refill, you could purchase more Energy via microtransactions. The game also launched with 32 characters, and added an extra nine via paid downloadable content.

Matsuyama also added that the story mode for Eyes of Heaven will follow an original story supervised by series creator Hirohiko Araki.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is due out for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan this fall. A new demo was recently made available on PlayStation 4 in Japan.
