A brand new picture from Extremely Soar depicting a sailboat would appear to lean towards the Pacific Islands principle, nevertheless. A timeframe for the setting has not but been made clear both; JoJolion was set in 2011, when it was written, however Joseph Joestar was a younger man in 1941, so relying on how intently descended half 9’s hero is, it could possibly be set wherever from 1960 to 2023, or even perhaps barely sooner or later, as Stone Ocean was at the time of its launch.
