The new JoJo game trailer is manly, yet fabulous

Even the ladies are GAR

It's difficult to name a property that combines hyper-masculinity with hyper-fabulousness as well as JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, so I won't even try, and just sit here, in awe of Naruto developer Cyberconnect2's apparent success at capturing that lovely, absurd style for their upcoming fighting game adaptation, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle. 

Seriously, just look at it! The new trailer reveals some of the JoJo series' more recent characters and chapters, such as Stone Ocean's female lead Jolyne Kujo (voiced by the inimitable Miyuki Sawashiro), Diamond Is Not Crash's Josuke Higashikata, and Dio Brando's own son, Giorno Giovana, hero of Vento Aureo

Of course, the game is called All Star Battle, and perhaps the biggest JoJo star of them all has to make an appearance for the loving masses. Dio Brando isn't one to disappoint, and he shows up about 3 minutes in, complete with a road roller, The World, and his signature catchphrases, such as "WRRRRYYYYY!" and "MUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDAMUDA!!!"

Goodness, I want this game so badly right now. Check out All Star Battle's first trailer below, which has footage of Jotaro Kujo, Joseph Joestar, and some dude in a really tight loincloth. Like I said, it's both manly and fabulous!
