JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle
 
According to triple camel, the lowest price on Amazon was $24.25. Twenty dollars was my buy price, and I am not sure it will get lower in the future. It seems like one of those "late release" games that come at the end of a system's life that will be a pain to track down later. Club Namco Store rung up no tax on my order, so Amazon can go Fuck themselves.  :D/

Highly recommended! I played a demo of the new jojo game and its not a fighting game. So if you want a fighting game of jojo, grab this now.

Nice find, OP! Free shipping and no sales tax--just like the Internet used to be.

Yep, now you just got to claim that tax on your Tax forms at the end of year.

$20 is the cheapest I have seen for this game.

FWIW, it's been this price on Bandai Namco at least since March. Evidently, I was a jerk and didn't post it when I found it, so props to OP.  :-

sorry, i'm not really into fighters... is this game the pre-quel to j-stars+ or are these two games completely separate from each other?

FYI, shipping is $3.95 for us losers that don't have Prime.

This is exclusively a JJBA fighting game featuring characters from parts 1-8 of the manga. J-Stars is a crossover that just happens to feature Jonathan and Joseph Joestar (the protagonists of JJBA parts 1 and 2). As someone who owns both the localized copy of All-Star Battle as well as an imported copy of J-Stars, I honestly recommend skipping J-Stars. All-Star Battle is definitely worth it if you like the JJBA manga or like fighting games in general.

Thanks OP. I don't see this going much lower before it disappears completely, and the free Prime shipping sealed the deal. A little annoyed that this happened the same day I'm picking up Batman, but so it goes.

Regardless if you have Prime or not, you can't use Amazon credit on it. :|

Thanks for clearing that up.  Having the two characters and the name of the game be "j-stars" is kind of confusing.  This is quite a niche game... I'd be surprised if they ported this to PS4, but that's exactly what I'm hoping for.  Maybe one day.

This game was okay. I rented it a while back and beat it in a couple of hours. It has very easy trophies so if anyone is into that this game is for you. Also when I played this game the online was dead.

Thanks OP.

Well, if anyone's wondering, its also mentioned up on the front page of Bamco's store site, and it lists that its actually a sale, not a price drop, and it ends on 6/29, so its a limited time offer.

Yeah, I've been paying tax on amazon purchases for a while, so no use tax for me.

Absolutely. Right after I get back from performing community service for the elderly and and participating in a pro-government rally.

So someone pulled a ZA WARUDO on me and swapped out my copy of Jojo for Tales of Xillia 1.
