Jojo's Bizarre Adventure continues to look bizarre in HD

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure continues to look bizarre in HD
Even with advance warning, we still kind of can't believe it happened: Capcom took time out during Comic-Con to announce an HD port of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

The implementation, as demonstrated by the new screenshots in our gallery, is quite a bit more believable: it uses the same kind of (optional) graphical filters seen in games like Street Fighter 3 Third Strike Online Edition. The completely incomprehensible imagery in every screen is just a little bit smoother. But still incomprehensible.

In addition to filters, Jojo HD will use Battle Points and Player Points with leaderboards, and will include an eight-player lobby system with a spectator function, allowing you to try to make sense of other people's fights. You can also save and view replays.%Gallery-160443%
