Viewtiful Joe Smashing His Way Into Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom

By Spencer . November 3, 2008 . 11:10am

vjtvc The list of characters in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom keeps getting better. At a Capcom event in Shinagawa three more fighters were revealed including Viewtiful Joe! Judging by this screenshot Joe appears to have his VFX powers too. Slow motion or hyper speed fighting would be an interesting twist, but would it give Joe too much of an advantage?


Saki Kanebou is also from the Capcom clan, but you may not recognize the name. She is from a quiz game called Quiz Nanairo Dreams and had a cameo in Marvel vs. Capcom 1 as a helper character. In Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Cross Generations of Heroes she’s upgraded to a main fighter and carries a huge gun.


Ippatsuman from the 1982 anime series in another newly Tatsunoko character, but Capcom didn’t reveal what kinds of moves he will have in the game.

    So how is everyone planning to import this one? The Wii Freeloader doesnt work anymore, so is buying a Japanese Wii the only option? Its really starting to look that way…

    It depends. There is a possibility that some homebrew software will be able to boot it. We won’t really know though until the game comes out and somebody gets a chance to test it.
