An interview with Hirohiko Araki from the V Jump magazine, published on February 21, 1993.[1] The magazine features various materials promoting the OVA series and the Super Famicom game.


It feels like an entirely new type of road game!

Manga Artist: Hirohiko Araki
I'm currently supervising the OVA for JoJo, which will be released this summer! It's very good, so I hope you look forward to it!

It was like reading from the manga again...
I didn't read the instruction manual at first, so I was a bit lost on what I had to do. (laughs) Later I learned that there was a spirit level and that I could talk during battles. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to form your own strategies. It was very interesting to learn and I felt smart after figuring it out. It seems like the person who made this game was quite familiar with my work. Even though I forgot a few lines myself. (laughs) It's like reading straight from the manga while playing.

Araki-sensei's workplace inside a luxurious apartment located in the residential district of Setagaya City.

When Jotaro and Kakyoin attack with their "Ora Ora Ora!", it was really great seeing their final hit in action. (laughs) The fists on the screen made it feel like I was getting beat up. The graphics for Kakyoin's Emerald Splash were also done beautifully. That one came out effortlessly and it makes me happy whenever I see it being used. I wish the picture could've been a little bigger for that scene. Can't I just blow up the top half of the screen? (laughs)

When I tried talking to the opponents during battle, I thought it was a bit weird that they kept saying "I ignored your words." (laughs)

  • Favorite Stand User: (Ally) Jotaro Kujo "Star Platinum"; (Foe) Pretty much all of them.
  • Favorite Quote: I wrote all the dialogue myself, so I guess all of it. (laughs)
  • Comment: I think Polnareff's appearance was pretty funny. Those who are just starting the game should keep a close eye out for him!
