Namco Bandai Games Japan has revealed J-Stars Victory VS will allow players to cross save between the PS3 and PSVita versions of the game! In other words, you can play on PS3 and then if you have to go, just copy over the save to your Vita and play J-Stars on the go! You will, of course, need both versions of the game in order to do this.

In related news enjoy a few new screenshots featuring Fist of the North Star characters Kenshiro and Raoh in J-Stars Victory VS. And if you haven’t seen it already take a look at the exciting new J-Stars Victory VS Trailer 7!

    You do know that if you are planning to play this game online your going to have to play using a jp account. which would mean if u don’t have a jp account on your ps vita you can not play this game online. J-Stars is rumored to have something called a Region Locked/Account Online Pass which means you get one online pass with your game this online pass (with downloadable version is linked to what ever account bought the game most likely an asain psn account) with retail copies when you redeem this code the game searches your ps store (of the account you tried to redeem it on) if your ps store does not have the J-Stars Victory Versus Online Pass within that store it will tell you your code is invalid. If your code is valid and it’s saying it’s not it’s because the North American Ps Store (and basically every other PS Store) does not have the online pass within it’s data pass. Thus denying you access to online play. Have a JP Account ready so you can redeem your code with that account in order to play online. (The game will most likely have online trophies which will also make this game 100% impossible to get the Platinum trophy if your not on an asain psn account.)

  • naruto Uzamaki

    Ya i know I have a JP account

  • naruto Uzamaki

    WOW

  • ally

    yeah cant wait to get home lol

  • naruto Uzamaki

    And thank you

  • naruto Uzamaki

    Yup lol

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    I would recommend making a JP Account, go online and buy some JP PSN Cards and get ready to download it day 1. It’ll cost 7980 yen just to let you know. And plus with a download copy of the game you can gameshare it with a friend so technically you have two copies of the game. But to note that since the Online pass will most likely be account locked what ever friend you would want to share it with will have to buy his own which will most likely cost 1000 yen. But 7980 + 1000 yen in order to play with your friend online. (This is what I’m dealing with right now)

  • Reggie Toussaint

    Give me the Link Ally.

  • http://www.cc2.co.jp/narutimate_enq/ Yomi

    Don’t site your source or anything, just allude to it.

  • GokuSSJG

    :( really? I thought the was no problem like that with the no region lock. So if you create a japanese psn account, your trophies will be stored in that account right? So it would be like if I never had the game in my original account? And is there a problem if I change between accounts in my ps vita, like while sync or something? (Sorry Im kind of new in this different region accounts thing.)

  • ventusiixii

    can you tell me where you could,i want to import it to UK or US then to my country from there O,O

  • ventusiixii

    nah dude,i always download JP demos and play it with my EU account,i don’t think there will be any problem with regions in this game…except for the DLC because you will need to download from th JP store…

  • http://slicetheluffy.deviantart.com/ Slicethemadara★(SI Contribute)

    Alright guys! a few months ago i promised to translate the game…since it’s so close to release, I am certainly going to deliver! it will a FAQ/Walk through so get ready X)

  • ryan

    im getting it for my ps3

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    Sony’s Playstation department never believed in region locking anything Playstation related. Which is why we are able to play JP games on your Playstations anyway. The problem is Badai, Bandai wants more money out of their game. Example if they make a game and look at the sales let’s say they see that 100,000 people bought the game and they my 100,000 worth of revenue off of that game, but when they check the servers and see that 150,000 people are actually playing the game. They wonder “Why the hell did these extra 50,000 people come from?” It’s from used copies of the game on amazon and used imported copies, not only that it’s people gamesharing the game with their friend. (Gamesharing is when you buy a game digitally and let your friend log in as you and download the game you bought thus allowing your friend to play it on his console for free). Bandai wants the money from the people who bought it used or gameshared it. This is why they created the region locked/account locked online pass. The Region Locked Online pass allows them to limit only PSN accounts that are Asian to play their game online. It also allows the to limit the Online pass to one account use only which allows only one person to play that game online using that online pass. You can gameshare J-Stars but if you are the friend getting it for free unless you are going to use your friend’s account to play the game online you are going to have to buy your own online pass thus them getting more money.

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    Like I said Ventusiixii you will be able to play the game on your North American PSN account if you bought and downloaded the game on your JP account. What you can’t do is play the game online using your North American account. Demos are in the hands of Sony, the game’s permissions is within the hands of Sony and the Playstation which is why you are able to play the game on different accounts no problem. But once you actually go into the game that’s where Bandai gets you because you in their house now and once you press on “Online” IT WILL VERIFY to check if you have a online pass and if it’s valid. Since I already said it’s account locked this is where bandai would check to see if the Online pass matches, they do this all in game. If you don’t have an online pass it well tell you to put in the code or go to the PS Store and purchase it and since the North American PS Store wouldn’t have a J-Stars Victory Versus Online Pass to provide for you, you wouldn’t be able to obtain an online pass in order to play online using your US account. PSN isn’t doing this, Sony isn’t doing this, Bandai is doing this look it up dude this is a recently thing they just started to do Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost is like this and so is the most recent Kamen Rider game. Everyone is saying J-Stars is up next.

  • Abdul Muhaimin

    so whos doing lets play or walkthrough?

  • Kagura

    Hopefully, it won’t be region account locked to play online. But as Rikuson said it has a high chance of happening and is only a rumour to be on the game at this point, so let’s just pray and hope that they don’t do the online pass, but if they do then we’ll just have to deal with it.

    Aww thanks dude! X)

  • Captain Sumoka

    I am starting to like you now Bob

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    Ok buddy I’m with you as far as hoping it’s not true but I my friends want to play this with me but they don’t want to pay 1000 yen for their own online pass. So if this is not the case then thank god. But as far as I have been hearing Bandai Namco is making this a standard for all there future games that have an online component and all fingers are pointing at J-Stars to be up next. But if it is the case remember this conversation and don’t say no one didn’t tell you before hand.

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    When you are on your non asain psn account when you press on online mode. It’s going to ask you for you online pass. If you don’t have it you want even be permitted to see the online menu of the game. And yes unfortunately you are going to have to switch to your asain account in order to play the game online. You can do everything on your original account except play online.

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    yes it will be on the JP Store the day the game comes it and buying it digitally will obviously be the fastest way to get your hands on it. (It’s the way I’m planning on purchasing the game.)

  • https://twitter.com/Rikuson1 Rikuson Rozan

    I liked Sanctuary Battle more..

  • Kuwabara

    Yeah it was a good ride even though I read the whole manga in 2 weeks but that made me connect more with the characters, and it had the best character develpment that I have ever seen. And yea it would be nice to have more characters from Hitman Reborn but I was talking about the user in this site thats called Rokudo Mukuro.

  • rokudo mukuro

    well if its a different system then it isnt counted locally. so i guess it works.

  • rokudo mukuro

    kufufufu. it was a pleasure. glad i could help you.

  • ventusiixii

    Oh i see now,so i must play it online with my JP account,sounds annoying but it’s ok i can let my friends create JP accounts and play together.

    thank you for your explain.

  • unleashrage

    Sakigake Otokojuku which comes out next week doesn’t have an online pass. Gundam had the pass as it was to help crack down on people using sub accounts getting better w/l ratio against beginners. If we don’t hear anything by the 6/7 March about an online pass then it should be alright as companies would usually announce the game would have an online pass like they did with Gundam.

  • Kuwabara

    Oh there you are I just wanted to say Thank you, without you I would have never laid eyes on this awesome series. XD

  • romo vincent

    it just ended we need mukuro sama to make an real illusion asap

  • romo vincent

    i read it so sad i loved beelzebub

  • JaVonn Thomas

    me

    Perfect face

  • JaVonn Thomas

    Photo 8, “Mah homie”

  • JaVonn Thomas

    THANK YOU

  • JaVonn Thomas

    Gundam Breaker and Yakuza Ishin do the same.

  • Hero

    His fists are for the heavens!

  • Chris Blankman

    Yep.

  • B Reyes Hoangkong

    I technically didn’t ended because they are doing a spin of every 2 months so i guess it changed from weekly to monthly.

  • Kuwabara

    But will the spinoff have Oga or will it be about another new character at Ishiyama? I feel like with the timeskip they ruined the chances of bringing it back unless Oga gives Beel’z sister to Furuichi.

  • B Reyes Hoangkong

    The spinoff is just like the regular manga with oga being the main character and stuff.

  • Kuwabara

    Ok thanks, im actually happy now even if it will be monthly now instead of weekly.

  • Orichalkos

    Hopefully anyone can answer this. if i opt to buy both versions i just need to buy one Song edition version and I’ll be able to use it in both Versions instead of buying both Song edition versions
