JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle League (ジョジョの奇妙な冒険 オールスターバトルリーグ JoJo no Kimyō na Bōken Ōru Sutā Batoru Rīgu) is a competition consisting of a series of live stream broadcasts to promote JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle. It was announced on June 9, 2013 with the fifth trailer of the PS3 game.

The event was hosted by Bandai Namco producer Noriaki Nino, CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama, and comedian Kendo Kobayashi. It was set up as a tournament between computer controlled characters. Due to Kobayashi's absence on August 7, 2013, Yōji Ueda, Robert E. O. Speedwagon's voice actor, temporarily replaced Kobayashi's role.

The tournament was split up into two portions: a preliminary round of 6 randomly selected groups, and a final round consisting of the winners of the preliminaries and the cheer campaign. A special PlayStation 3 theme featuring DIO and his Stand The World was made available afterwards to commemorate the winner.[1]

The footage of the tournament was later removed from Bandai Namco's YouTube channel.

Cheer Campaign

Preceding the tournament, a poll was cast allowing people around the world to cheer for a particular character. The votes were totaled to decide which characters could skip straight to the finals.

Rules for Cheer Campaign

  1. On the official site, fans select a character from the selection located on the right.
  2. After selecting their choice, fans will need to click the twitter button located to the left to tweet a message link. (Will need to be logged onto Twitter to do this.)
  3. Only one vote per person is counted each day.
  4. The top 3 characters are automatically placed in the finals.
