JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven (Japanese: ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 アイズオブヘブン Hepburn: JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Aizu Obu Hebun) is 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. There is also a novel transposition of the game.
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 (Japanese: デュアルコンボ Hepburn: Dyuaru Konbo) and Dual Heat Attacks (Japanese: デュアルヒートアタック Hepburn: Dyuaru Hīto Attaku), though provide no discernible 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 "The Prime Example of Superior German Science" style. 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" (Japanese: 食屍鬼街（オウガーストリート）Hepburn: Ōgā Sutorīto) and "The Prime Example of Superior German Science" (Japanese: ゲルマン民族の最高知能の結晶 Hepburn: Geruman Minzoku no Saikō Chinō no Kesshō, lit. The Greatest Crystallized Intelligence of the German People) to the game. Also new in Eyes 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.
