  • Most gift and trade Pokémon now hold items, and many wild Pokémon now have held items included in later games.
  • EV capped at 252.
  • Stats now show color based on Nature.
  • Mew/Arceus (aka Deoxys) from outside of the event now obeys.

Hotfix Update Information

Notes for people looking to update:

  • Many uncommon/low power moves were replaced, so any Pokémon with these moves will have them be changed.
  • The player can go to the town with the 3rd gym leader for the move tutor if you need. (Example: any Pokémon that knew Bubble will now have Judgment.)
  • The Pokédex order was changed, so any progress made will be shuffled around. For example, if Mew was caught, it’ll have set that you have caught the #151 Pokémon.
  • Mew is now #164, and Omanyte is instead #151, so it’ll show Omanyte as caught instead.
  • Outside of a 100% dex completion, this can largely be ignored.
  • Finally, Riolu, Shinx, Luxio, Pikachu, and to a lesser extent, several others had their stats buffed, which won’t reflect until the next time they level-up.



We don’t share pre-patched rom hacks and roms – sharing these files is considered piracy, and it’s illegal! Before you can play this game, you need to patch the downloaded file to a clean base rom. To learn more on how to patch, check this guide.

Note from TrainerX493 (hotfix author): 7b saves, and all other 8.X saves are compatible with version 8.7.0, just replace the original ROM and make sure it uses the same name. Use NPS patcher or with a clean Emerald.gba (Trashman) rom to use this patch (Get these yourself, it’s not hard to find if you use Google, with the patch itself at the bottom of this post).

Best Anime-Themed PS1 Games Worth Playing

BY Nelson Chitty This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).

The original Playstation was released worldwide in 1995 – a golden age for anime when many iconic series like Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z created new fans in Western countries every day.

Still far from how it is today, the market for anime games was already growing.

By the time it was discontinued in 2006, the Playstation had a wealth of notable anime-based titles anyone would enjoy.

Back then, anime fans would play the hell out of whatever they could find. But if you’re going back to an almost 30-years-old console, you’ll want to FOCUS on the real gems.

Let me point you in the right direction with my picks for the best anime-style games on the original Playstation.

Dragon Ball: Ultimate Battle 22 (2003)

Dragon Ball: Ultimate Battle 22 shines as a product of fanservice.

It has a massive character roster of 22 characters (with the appropriate transformations) and five extra fighters to be unlocked in Arcade mode.

Thanks to the care the development team put into the sprites, based on actual cel drawings from the original animation, the visuals were superb.

What kept Ultimate Battle 22 from greatness was the sluggish combat, which may have been fine when it came out in Japan in 1995, but wasn’t well-received in 2003 when it finally made it to the US.

InuYasha: A Feudal Fairytale (2003)

You’ll get a better fighter experience from InuYasha: A Feudal Fairytale.

This beautiful title follows our favorite dog-man, Inuyasha, and his friends Kagome, Miroku, Sango, and Shippo as they piece together the Jewel of Four Souls.

Throughout the game, you can unlock Naraku, Sesshomaru, Demon Inuyasha, and even heart-breaking shrine maiden Kikyo for the game’s competitive mode.

The game got average reviews at the time of release, but for an InuYasha fan, it was a lot of fun.

Shaman King: Spirit of Shamans (2002)

Just a year before InuYasha: A Feudal Fairytale, developer Dimps had finished work on Shaman King: Spirit of Shamans, which I consider the better of the two.

The game features a visually striking art style, presenting the flesh-and-bone shamans as 2D sprites and their summoned spirits as 3D models. It’s unusual, but it looks fantastic.

The game covers the first half of the anime’s story, with a playable roster including beloved characters like Yoh, Ren, Wooden Sword Ryu, and Chocolove.

Short automatic combos and easy-to-use special moves streamline gameplay and make the game fun and flashy even for beginners, making it perfect for picking up and playing after all these years.

Ranma ½: Battle Renaissance (JP) (1996)

Ranma ½ had a long history of excellent 2D fighters by the time they decided to jump to 3D with Battle Renaissance.

The developers at Atelier Double kept Ranma ½’s name high with a fun and visually appealing fighter starring returning characters like Ranma, Shampoo, and Akane, along with some new ones that were previously manga-exclusive, such as Ryu Kumon and Rouge.

The addition of changing weather conditions that trigger the different characters’ curses, transforming them against their will, keeps combat dynamic and exciting.

Digimon World (2000)

Digimon World is a complex RPG where you recruit and raise Digimon to revive File City after a pandemic of Digimon losing their memories and going feral devastated the settlement.

When I say “raise,” I don’t just mean fighting for EXP.

Your Digimon needs to train, eat, rest, and even poop – and it’s your responsibility to keep everything flowing smoothly.

Do it right, and you’ll have strong Digimon to help you rebuild the city and face Machinedramon in the game’s final battle. Do it wrong, and they’ll evolve into this.

Monster Rancher 2 (1999)

Another monster-raising anime game you can’t overlook on the Playstation is Monster Rancher 2.

Top 100 PSP / Playstation Portable Hidden Gems in 10 Minutes

This game is focused 100% on raising monsters, so forget about any crazy adventures or a complex plot. Instead, you’ll send your monsters on adventures, train them in different disciplines, and slowly raise their attributes until they become outstanding specimens.

It’s not the most dynamic game, but thanks to its gorgeous graphics, you’ll enjoy watching your monsters going on adventures and facing strong opponents.

Monster Rancher 2 wasn’t based on an anime – it’s the other way around.

However, the Monster Rancher anime was popular and widely available in Western countries, so I made an exception.

jojo, game, best, anime-themed, games

Macross VF-X2 (JP) (1999)

Piloting a giant robot has always been the dream of mecha anime enthusiasts – so Japanese Macross fans must have gone wild when Macross VF-X2 was released.

This Japan-exclusive third-person shooter puts you in control of Aegis Focker, an ace Valkyrie pilot deployed by the U.N. Spacy to quell unrest and rebellions as part of the VF-X Ravens squadron.

Along with the high-intensity 3D combat that earns this game a spot on the list, its story mode is a definite highlight. The plot is gripping, and your choices can influence how it plays out.

A 100% original plot was written for Macross VF-X2, but much of it was later woven into the Macross Frontier anime, so don’t be surprised if you find some striking similarities there.

Hokuto no Ken: Seiki Matsukyu Seishi Densetsu (JP) (2000)

Known in Western countries as Fist of the North Star, 1983’s Hokuto no Ken is one of the manliest, most bad-ass manga ever written. The 1984 anime adaptation doesn’t stay behind.

This fighter allows you to experience the entire plot of the first half of the manga, from the very beginning to Kenshiro’s final battle against Raoh.

You’ll become immersed in the post-apocalyptic world of Fist of the North Star through epic confrontations and in-game cutscenes with superb voice acting.

Fans will love the Century’s End Theater, where you can create your own cutscenes with sprites, backgrounds, and dialogue from the game, along with some secret unlockable lines.

It’s a real treasure trove for fans of the Hokuto no Ken saga.

Rurouni Kenshin: Ishin Gekitouhen (JP) (1996)

Rurouni Kenshin – known in some Western countries as Samurai X – was one of the most influential anime of my childhood, and it only gets better the older I get.

With gameplay comparable to the hit fighter Tekken 3, Rurouni Kenshin: Ishin Gekitouhen is much easier to get into than most. Its anime-based 3D graphics are well above average, and unleashing flashy special moves on your foes is thrilling.

While the story mode is faithful to the original story and very entertaining, the Vs. mode is what you’re here for.

There are nine playable characters, including Sanosuke, Han’nya, Aoshi, and Kenshin.

Initial D (JP) (1999)

When I first watched Initial D as a kid sometime around 2002, I remember thinking the 3D-animated races looked remarkably like a video game – and I wanted to play it.

jojo, game, best, anime-themed, games

Regrettably, the Playstation Initial D title that would’ve made my dreams come true was never released outside of Japan.

This Initial D-based racer has you drifting on courses around Akina Pass, Mount Myogi, and Usui Pass as protagonist Takumi Fujiwara on his Toyota Spriter Trueno GT-APEX.

Other cars featured in the game include the Nissan Skyline GT-R, some Lancer Evolution models, and a Mercedes-Benz S-Class W126.

Neon Genesis Evangelion: Girlfriend of Steel (JP) (1998)

Anyone who’s watched Neon Genesis Evangelion can tell you that everyone in Tokyo-3 needs a therapist.

Shinji is already emotionally unstable – so when you surround him with an alcoholic Misato, a traumatized Asuka, and the emotionless Rei, only disaster can ensue.

So what if there was someone more stable who could give him the love he deserves?

That’s the scenario explored by Girlfriend of Steel, a Japan-exclusive dating SIM/visual novel where Shinji meets the love of his life: Mana Kirishima.

An English-patched PC version of the game can be found here.

Digimon Rumble Arena (2002)

Digimon Rumble Arena is a legendary 3D fighter starring some of your favorite Digimon from the first three seasons of the anime.

If you played this back in the day, you know how addicting it could be – at least until somebody chose Reapermon as their fighter and ruined the fun for everyone else.

This game shines for its varied character roster and unique interactive stages that change as the battle draws on and present different environmental hazards to keep an eye on.

Along with the appealing graphics, the game’s superb soundtrack keeps every battle exciting.

Gundam: Battle Assault 2 (2002)

If I ranked the best-looking anime game on the Playstation, Gundam: Battle Assault 2 would be a leading contender for the top spot.

This fighter was developed for the American market by the same team behind the gorgeous-looking Gundam Wing: Endless Duel on the Super Famicom. Clearly, they kept visual appeal a top priority.

The game is centered on the Mobile Fighter G Gundam continuity, but it features pilots and mobile suits from all over the franchise.

The original MS Gundam, Zeta Gundam, Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz, War in the. and the original Gundam Battle Assault are all well-represented in the fighter roster.

It might feel sluggish for button-mashing pros, but the average Gundam fan will love this game.

Ghost in the Shell (1997)

Futuristic technology is one of the most exciting parts of the Ghost in the Shell franchise.

Who doesn’t want to drive a Fuchikoma Tank after seeing them in action?

Ghost in the Shell puts you in the shoes of a Rookie in Public Security Section 9, working under Major Motoko Kusanagi to dismantle a terrorist plot with the help of the iconic spider-like Fuchikoma.

It’s a fantastic Cyberpunk-themed third-person shooter with terrific presentation thanks to original manga author Shirow Masamune’s involvement.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (2000)

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has entered the realm of video games several times, but this Playstation title is by far one of the best results.

This game brings Stardust Crusaders’ colorful cast together with excellent fighting mechanics courtesy of the masters at Capcom. Power gauges, super moves, and even a “Stand Mode” transformation make battles as exciting as they are in the anime.

Capcom also contributed their experience with anime-like sprites from the development of Darkstalkers, making Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure one of the best-looking games on the console.

The fact that this gem was released in English is nothing short of a miracle – so do yourself a favor and check it out!

JoJo‘s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

Download JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven if you want a fighting game that has a more sexier and cooler edge. With some very hot anime style characters and some very revealing clothing, this is pretty close to being a lewd fighting game!

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is a tag-team fighting game based on the popular manga and anime series, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. It was published by Bandai Namco Games in 2015 and released on the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. The game offers single-player and online multiplayer, but unfortunately no local multiplayer.

Nonetheless, this game is still a very fun fighting game. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is very similar to other anime fighting games, such as Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and One Piece Grand Battle!

Story Mode

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven includes an action-packed, enjoyable story mode. Each character included in the game can be used in the story mode. They can each level up and gain new abilities as you complete different battles and missions in the story mode.

Leveling up the characters also increases their health capacity and attack strength, amongst other upgrades. Winning battles gives you the chance to choose from different character skins and extra colors. The better grade you receive from the battle, the better the rewards are.

Fighting Style

All characters each have their own ‘Style Action’, which is their main special ability. This action is important to how the characters fight in-game. While some style actions act in accordance with the character’s playstyle, other style actions are instead powerful attacks that are limited in use. Each character also has a ‘Battle Style’, which changes their in-game playstyle and different strengths and weaknesses. For example, characters that have the ‘Vampire’ battle style recover damage over time, though this is prevented if their opponent has the ‘Ripple’ battle style. A third attack style is a Dual Heat Attack, which is a team combo that can only be used when the Dual Heat Gauge is full. Some characters can even perform a Special Dual Heat Attack, which creates unique animations, some recreating manga scenes.


Overall, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven provides players with a very fun game filled with loads of content. The game felt so similar to the anime, so those who love the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime series will surely enjoy this game. It includes all of the characters in the manga/anime, including the most powerful ones. Though this created unbalanced characters, with some fighters being way stronger than others. Nonetheless, the game provides a plethora of content through its big roster.

The game includes a lengthy story mode that will leave players addicted. However, this mode was not as in-depth and complex as expected to be, especially when compared to the previous installment of the game series. Another issue with the game is the multiplayer gameplay.

Not only does the game not include a local multiplayer option, preventing you from playing with nearby people, but the online multiplayer contains so much lag that it can become unplayable. Overall, while the game has few gameplay and lag issues, it is a very fun and captivating game.

  • Fun mechanisms and gameplay
  • Loads of content
  • Full roster
  • Long story mode
  • Lack of local multiplayer
  • Great online multiplayer lag
  • Unbalanced characters

Game Reviews

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a popular manga and anime series that has gained a significant following over the years. Its unique blend of action, humor, and supernatural elements has captivated viewers and readers alike. The series has also been adapted into several video games, including JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven. Developed by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, this game was released for the Playstation 4 in 2015. In this review, we will take a closer look at JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven and evaluate its gameplay, visuals, and overall quality.

About the game

One of the most exciting aspects of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is its gameplay mechanics. The game is a fighting game that allows players to control characters from the manga and anime series. The game features two-on-two battles, where players can switch between their two characters at any time during the fight. The controls are relatively simple, making it easy for players to pick up and play the game. This simplicity, however, also means that the game lacks depth in its combat system, and the fights can become repetitive and dull after a while.

The gameplay itself borrows heavily from other 3D fighters like Dragon Ball Fighterz, providing simple controls and combo systems that are easy to pick up but with enough depth to keep players engaged. A variety of play modes, including story, arcade, online battles, and tag team matches, provide plenty of content for solo players and groups alike.

While the gameplay is functional, the main draw of Eyes of Heaven is experiencing the iconic stands, personas, and hamon techniques of the JoJo universe in a full 3D space. Pounding an opponent with Star Platinum’s fists or freezing them with The World’s time stop is immensely satisfying. However, the lack of online lobbies and ranked matches means the competitive scene will remain limited.

The Graphics and Animation

Cyberconnect2 is known for their impressive production values, and Eyes of Heaven delivers some of the most stylish and vibrant visuals ever seen in a fighting game. Every character, from the muscular Jotaro Kujo to the fashionable Josuke Higashikata, has been faithfully recreated with incredible detail. The over the top super moves and finishers are spectacular to behold, especially when played alongside another player.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is visually stunning. The game features cel-shaded graphics that resemble the manga and anime series. The characters are beautifully designed, and the game’s environments are detailed and vibrant. The game’s animations are smooth, and the special moves and attacks are visually impressive. The game’s soundtrack is also noteworthy, featuring music from the anime series and original tracks composed for the game. The characters’ voice acting is also excellent, with the original Japanese voice actors reprising their roles for the game.

Review: 8/10

Overall, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is a fantastic game for any fan of the manga and anime series, as well as players seeking a stylish and over the top 3D fighter. With amazing visuals, arcade-level gameplay, and the chance to live out your wildest JoJo fantasies, Eyes of Heaven deserves a score of 8 out of 10.

Compared to Dragon Ball Fighterz, Eyes of Heaven provides a similar experience at a lower price point, catering to niche fans of the Bizarre Adventure with its many references andnods to the source material rather than mainstream appeal. While not a revolutionary fighting game, Eyes of Heaven is a worthy addition to any collection.

  • Stunning cel-shaded graphics that accurately capture the look of the series
  • Enjoyable story mode that provides a good challenge for players
  • Faithful adaptation of the manga and anime series
  • Inclusion of characters from all eight parts of the manga
  • Lack of depth in its combat system
  • Repetitive and dull fights after a while
  • Small roster of characters compared to other fighting games

The flamboyantly intense world of the Joestars is back in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven. This time, the action will take players throughout the ages of JoJo history, as they relive epic moments from the manga and anime seen in an entirely new light.

What makes this game stand out is the unique story, which is faithful to the source material and full of twists and turns that will keep players engaged until the end. If you’re a fan of all things JoJo, then this is a game that can’t be missing from your collection!

Bizarre Presentation

One of the most striking features of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is its stunning visuals. The game‘s cel-shaded graphics perfectly capture the colorful and flamboyant world of Jojo‘s Bizarre Adventure, making it a treat for both fans and newcomers to the series.

The sound effects are also top-notch, with each character having their unique voice lines and special moves that add to the overall immersive experience. With a franchise that relies so heavily on the charismatic nature of its characters, it’s great to see that a game like Eyes of Heaven knows exactly what its target audience wants – and delivers it in spades.

Three-Dimensional Combat

The gameplay in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is fast-paced and intense, with players having access to a wide range of moves and combos. Each character has their unique abilities, making them feel distinct from one another, and the game features a variety of modes, including a story mode, versus mode, and online multiplayer.

With so many characters, modes, and moves to master, the game offers a lot of replayability and depth that will keep players coming back for more. Coming from a game like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, the new 3D FOCUS of Eyes of Heaven’s combat makes the game feel a bit more like the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm series.

Unmistakably JoJo

Compared to other fighting games like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven stands out for its unique story and vibrant visuals. While both games offer a wide range of characters and moves, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven’s gameplay feels more nuanced and complex, with a greater emphasis on strategy and teamwork.

Additionally, the game’s story mode and dimension-hopping mechanics set it apart from other fighting games, making it a must-play for fans of the series and fighting game enthusiasts alike.

Overall, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is an excellent fighting game that offers a unique story, eye-catching visuals, and deep gameplay. Whether you’re a fan of the manga and anime series or just looking for an engaging fighting game, this title is sure to deliver hours of fun and excitement.

While some of the basic gameplay mechanics might seem a tad repetitive, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven is a unique fighting experience that fans of the series will definitely love.

  • Original story, written by Hirohiko Araki
  • Unique fighting mechanics allow for tag team battles and special moves that capture the essence of the characters’ abilities
  • A wide variety of characters to choose
  • Shallow fighting mechanics that can become repetitive and lack some depth
  • Limited gameplay modes, with the majority of the game focused on the story mode

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Beginner’s Guide: Parts, Characters

You may be aware of a certain series called JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure from the memes: absurd poses, outlandish costumes and character designs, Yes’s Roundabout all spring to mind. But beyond all these inside jokes and apparent goofiness, what exactly is JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

That’s exactly the question we’re going to answer today. From the first member of the Joestar bloodline to the most recent, read on to discover the fundamentals of one of the most influential, over-the-top anime series in recent history with this JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure beginner’s guide.

Who Created JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is the creation of mangaka Hirohiko Araki, who despite being in his 60s has maintained an incredible youthful glow.

Araki began JJBA in 1987, and has been working steadily on the series and its spinoffs ever since.

What Is JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure About?

This is a question without a simple answer. In its shortest version, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is about members of the Joestar family, as different descendants across multiple generations battle evil in all its forms, often connected to the family’s nemesis, the megalomaniacal vampire Dio Brando.

That’s the short version, because what JJBA is about changes from part to part. In Part 1, we follow Jonathan Joestar (called JoJo by his friends) in Victorian England as he battles against Dio, his wicked adoptive brother who has forsaken his humanity in the pursuit of power. Part 2 follows Jonathan’s grandson, the goofy prankster Joseph Joestar, in his globetrotting adventures across America and Europe. Part 3 in turn centers on Joseph’s grandson Jotaro Kujo, a brooding delinquent and the most muscular high-schooler to ever live, in a road tripping adventure of his own, and so on and so forth down the line.

For the first two parts, the battles in JJBA revolve around a mystical martial art called Hamon, that involves channeling sunlight into people’s breathing to improve their fighting prowess. However, in Part 3, Araki pivots to a new battle system: Stands, personifications of their fighting spirit (basically a Persona with a specific superpower) to battle each other, and Stand battles would become the backbone of the rest of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Each part centers around a new JoJo (though previous JoJos can occasionally pop in or join the adventure), a new setting, and a new antagonist.

How Many Parts Does JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Have?

There are eight parts of the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga, with the most recent, JoJolion (pronounced like Evangelion, not like a JoJo Lion), concluding in 2021 after beginning in 2011.

However, only the first six parts have been animated at this time, with the most recent, Part 6: Stone Ocean, currently exclusive to Netflix. Each part has a distinct flavor to differentiate itself from other anime/manga and from other parts:

Part 1: Phantom Blood is a Victorian/Gothic horror story that involves doing sunlight kung fu against a vampire.

Part 2: Battle Tendency is more of a straight up battle manga series, focusing on different fighting styles and techniques in a manner reminiscent of series like Dragon Ball Z or Hunter x Hunter.

Part 3: Stardust Crusaders introduces Stands and covers an international trek through multiple countries and settings.

Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable narrows the scope to the strange happenings of the small town of Morioh, bringing the screwball energy of Twin Peaks into the mix.

Part 5: Golden Wind turns the JoJo formula into a mafia story, as new JoJo Giorno Giovannah tries to ascend the ranks of the Italian mafia.

Part 6: Stone Ocean relocates the action to a prison in Florida and follows Jolyne Kujo struggling to survive and unravel the conspiracy of her crime while on the inside.

Who Are the Main Characters of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure?

Of the six parts that have been animated thus far, each one has their own supporting casts and villains. The main person to watch in each part is the latest JoJo, of course, so they’re the characters you’ll spend the most time with. Joseph and Jotaro both have presences beyond their first part, and bring a greater sense of continuity to the story as a whole. Also, whenever you’ve seen an image of a JoJo, it was most likely Jotaro.

There are a few characters whose presence and legacy stretch across more than one part: First and foremost are Jonathan and Dio, progenitors of the entire conflict for the series. Erina, Jonathan’s love and Joseph’s grandmother, is an important presence as well. Robert Speedwagon, a street ruffian-turned ally to Jonathan, has a presence that extends into nearly every single part of JJBA that’s been animated thus far.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure in Video Games

An RPG adaptation came to the Super Famicom in 1993, while a fighting game also simply entitled ‘JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’ made its way to arcades in 1998.

An adaptation of Part 5, called GioGio’s Bizarre Adventure, came to the PS2 in 2002.
