Play OverviewPlay Overview

Viewtiful Joe (2003) is a side-on fighting game where you play a movie-lover whose girlfriend Silvia is kidnapped during a film starring your favourite superhero, Captain Blue. You enter the movie world, transformed into the tokusatsu-style persona "Viewtiful Joe" and must rescue her.

The gameplay combines running, jumping and fighting mixed with 3D cel-shaded graphics. You can call in special powers that slow down or speed up time. It’s frantic and fast-paced but offers a unique combination of strategy and platform combat.
