Several video games based on Hirohiko Araki's long-running manga series JoJo's Bizarre Adventure have been released. The first was a titular role-playing video game, based on the third story arc, which was released in 1993 for the Super Famicom. A fighting game for the arcade was also adapted from the third arc by Capcom in 1998, and also titled simply JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (released as JoJo's Venture in the west), with an updated version retitled JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future released later that year. The arcade game was ported to both the PlayStation and Dreamcast in 1999, and a high-definition version was released for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in August 2012.[1] These fighting games were the first pieces of JoJo related media released in North America, exposing the characters to many western players for the first time.

A third Capcom game was based on Part 5, titled GioGio's Bizarre Adventure and released for the PlayStation 2 in 2002. A game by Bandai, titled JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood, was released on October 26, 2006 for the PlayStation 2. The story is based on the first arc and features action/adventure gameplay, similar to GioGio's Bizarre Adventure. Araki has personally checked the quality of the game and its faithfulness to the original. At a July 5, 2012 press conference celebrating the 25th anniversary of JoJo, Araki himself announced JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle, produced by CyberConnect2 and published by Bandai Namco Games, it was released for the PlayStation 3.[2]

Before the first JoJo game was released, Bandai released a Weekly Shōnen Jump crossover adventure game titled Famicom Jump: Hero Retsuden in 1989. Joseph Joestar from the second arc is one of the playable characters, while Santana and Speedwagon made cameo appearances. Its sequel Famicom Jump II: Saikyō no Shichinin, released in 1991, features Jotaro as a selectable character. Joseph, Avdol, Kakyoin and Polnareff also appear in this game. Both games were available on the Famicom. Characters from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure were also featured in the 2005 Nintendo DS Weekly Shōnen Jump crossover game Jump Super Stars and its sequel Jump Ultimate Stars, including Jotaro Kujo and Dio Brando as playable characters.
