In the 34th entry of the Anime News Network series Jason Thompson's House of 1000 Manga, Jason Thompson stated that Capcom USA was disatisfied with how Jojo's Venture was doing in arcades at the time, to the point that he was told by a Capcom USA employee that they wouldn't release the game on home consoles "unless CAPCOM Japan forced them to".
