- Annasui, Vanilla Ice, Lisa Lisa and Old Joseph have been confirmed as of 09/09/2013◊. Vanilla Ice and Annasui will be released on 09/26, and Lisa Lisa and Old Joseph will come out two weeks after on 10/10. There are chances of more DLC; Baoh is supposed to be the last DLC, and his date is not shown.
Western release name changes
The game is confirmed for an overseas release, but let's face it: some of the character and Stand names will be changed. A few could probably get away with just shortening their name, but some may need a completely new name. Let's think of a few possible changes:
- According to a press release, the pillar men will be named San Tan, Wamuu, Esidisi, And Kars.
- Funny Valentine - "Valentine"
- Red Hot Chili Pepper - "Red Chili Pepper"
- Vanilla Ice - "Iced" (like in the Capcom game)
- Sex Pistols - "Six Pistols"
- Gold Experince - Gold / Golden Brilliance
- Gold Experince Requiem - Golden Requiem / Golden Brilliance Requiem
- Crazy Diamond - Crazy Lineman
- Soft & Wet - Wash & Lift
- Aerosmith - Aeromyth
- King Crimson - King Vision
- Killer Queen - Killer Mien
- Ice retained his name in the Viz manga release so its possible. "Wamuu, Esidisi and Kars" were more or less the Pillar Men's official names so Santana/San Tan is probably the only actual change.
- Killer Queen's going to keep its name and Crazy Diamond has changed to Shining Diamond, according to a recent press release.
