US version Viewtiful Joe 2 for Gamecube™ shipping with Joe Joe Clock bonus extra - preorder now at US$ 39.90 only

Capcom's quirkiest action superhero once again takes center stage in this engaging action brawler that has new moves, aplayable heroine, and inventive character designs with gameplay that perpetuates more punch and style than its predecessor.

At the beginning of this new adventure, we find Joe and his girlfriend, Silvia, ready to face even tougher enemies and greater challenges. This time around, not only will gamers be able to play as Joe, but as Silvia right off the bat as well. In addition to being equipped with her pompoms, Silvia will be packing some heat as she wields a projectile weapon to help defeat the encroaching evil that lurks in the shadows.

Keeping to the stylized yet richly detailed visuals, Viewtiful Joe 2 stays true to its masterfully crafted roots and delivers an even more brilliant and polished videogame. New cinematic visual effect (VFX) powers, such as "Replay" which allows gamers to repeat a part of the action for heroic results, have been implemented to help solve ingenious puzzles, defeat unique yet relentless enemies and add variety to gameplay: Spanning across an increased number of stages and environments including a jungle, snowy mountains and outer space, Viewtiful Joe 2 incorporates more impressive quasi 2D/3D action with over 40 new types of adversaries to obliterate. The not-so-average-Joe will once again break the gaming mold and deliver an experience unlike any other with his polished martial arts attacks, high-flying acrobatics, and compelling storyline.

Expected to be released in the US first, preorders for the US Gamecube™ version of Viewtiful Joe 2 are welcome to ship on November 23rd at US$ 39.90 only. Every preorder is guaranteed to ship including a free bonus gift, a Joe Joe Clock. Make sure to place your preorder soon and don't miss out on Capcom's upcoming hit and of course the bonus special.

Not to forget, the Japanese retail versions are scheduled for shipping on December 16th and preorders for the Japanese Gamecube™ as well as PlayStation2™ versions are welcome at US$ 59.90.
