CyberConnect2 unveils its latest fighting game trailer, complete with bouncing horses and shiny teeth.

CyberConnect2, the Japanese studio behind .hack and Asura's Wrath, has announced its latest fighting game project: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle for the PS3. Its new trailer shows off plenty of dudes and the punching thereof, as well as someone's painful-looking dental work and a bouncing horse's butt.

It's not the first time CyberConnect2 has worked on a fighting game, but it is its first shot at the JoJo franchise. As a manga Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure has been going since 1987, and CyberConnect2's game will be the twelfth in a long line of titles going all the way back to the days of the PS2. As this is an All-Stars game, an extensive stable of characters from the series will be available for your bone-crunching enjoyment.

The manga tells the story of the Joestars, a powerful family of martial artists with English roots. There's plenty of supernatural mayhem, with vampires, dinosaurs and whatnot, and the main characters get their powers from mysterious meteorite artefacts as well as rigorous training and mental aptitude. The trailer calls out to several of the series' main books - Steel Ball Run, Stone Ocean - which should please fans of the characters featured in those stories.

No word yet on a release date for this title.
