Noriaki Kakyoin appears as a playable character in the Capcom game.

In Heritage for the Future, a separate incarnation is included, referred to as Fearless Kakyoin (恐怖をのり越えた花京院) or simply "New Kakyoin" in the English Localization

Moveset & Gameplay

Easily one of the most powerful and mindgame-rich character, Kakyoin can take almost anyone on, provided he can properly zone, bait and punish. This allows him to provide a serious challenge to powerful characters like Jotaro and DIO. He has limited options up close, but is a very dangerous character played with range. With the Stand activated, he can dash and double jump in the air. He also has one of the longest reaches in terms of physical attacks - particularly with his Stand attack. His command throws likewise inflict significant damage depending on button presses.

In the arcade version, he has considerable offense power but is slightly slow. This was changed in the PlayStation port and the updated arcade version, but at the price of losing damage strength. He also gained a new super move that helped him in his offensives.

Both of their cars take off at the same speed, and manage to stay neck-in-neck through the first six curves. D'Arby's car gains the lead in an acceleration tunnel, but Kakyoin uses his car's energy to knock D'Arby off the track... onto a farther section of the course. Kakyoin internally admits defeat, and Telence's Stand Atum removes his soul. After Telence warns the Joestars that killing him means killing Kakyoin, Jotaro challenges D'Arby to a game of Oh! That's A Baseball!. Though Jotaro scores four home runs in his first inning at-bat, D'Arby scores three consecutive home runs, leading Jotaro and Joseph to suspect Atum can read minds. To counter this ability, Jotaro begins announcing the direction of his pitches in advance. Telence confirms Jotaro's forecasts are accurate, but is completely dumbfounded when the pitches change direction regardless. In his shock, Telence releases his grip on Kakyoin's soul. After learning that Joseph had been using Hermit Purple to play the game for Jotaro, Telence begs for forgiveness; reading Jotaro's mind, he realizes that the answer is a firm "Ora-Ora".
Secret Factor: Is it the "Ora-Ora" thing, perhaps?! (もしかしてオラオラですかーッ!?)

The heroes, mortified, quickly escape the mansion; with the sun now setting, however, DIO is prepared to hunt them down. Joseph and Kakyoin decide to retreat, but Polnareff goes off alone to face DIO head-on; Jotaro follows Polnareff, stating that the group will be attacking DIO from both sides.

After the fight, DIO stops time and impales Kakyoin through the chest in front of Joseph. Kakyoin fires a final Emerald Splash at a clock tower before passing away, giving Joseph a clue to the Stand's true power.
Secret Factor: Hierophant's Field! (「法皇」の「結界」!)
