Viewtiful Joe 2 to be released on Gamecube before Christmas 2004?

While rumours about Viewfiful Joe heading to PS2™ are currently all around the net, a Hong Kong based game magazine (Game Watch) has revealed some - yet officially to be confirmed - news about a possible Gamecube™ successor to Capcom's action game.

We have translated the indeed very interesting news and put together everything important into a small facts sheet:

  • The main character of the game will be Joe
  • A second character in the game will be Joe's girlfriend Silvia
  • Silvia is carrying 2 cheerleader like pom-poms
  • Joe & Silvia are fighting together in a team
    (i.e., Joe can hit an enemy into the sky, where Silvia will finish him off)
  • The graphics and style of VJ2 will be similar to VJ
  • Also the gameplay & system will be similar
  • Viewtiful Joe 2 will feature 6 different transport methods
  • Most likely a different studio will be responsible for VJ2
  • Viewtiful Joe 2 is expected to be officially shown on E3
  • Viewtiful Joe 2 is expected to be released before Christmas 2004

    The complete article (for those who can read Traditional Chinese) is available for download here.

    Even though no responsibility is taken for the correctness of these information, we'd certainly very appreciate to see VJ2 coming to Gamecube™ still in this year.

    Preorders for the PS2™ version of Viewtiful Joe as well as a possible Gamecube™ version of Viewtiful Joe 2 will be opened as soon both titles have officially been announced. Until then we still recommend the latest Japanese re-release version of Viewtiful Joe Revival (which is identical to Viewtiful Joe but with a low price tag and new "sweet game mode" featuring a lower difficulty level).

    Finally, a big thanks to our friends at Gamefront.de for notifying us about this news article.
