Viewtiful Joe To Guest Star In Brawler For Smartphones

By Ishaan . August 28, 2013 . 6:25pm

The Viewtiful Joe franchise is on the backburner, but Capcom’s quirky superhero will be making an appearance in a brawler for smartphones, titled Combo Crew.


Inspired by games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, and Street Fighter, Combo Crew has you trapped in a large tower, fighting your way up to defeat Mr. Boss, who’s looking to defeat the world’s greatest fighters.


Combo Crew will feature multiple heroes to play as, each with their own moves and a combo system with super moves. You can play the game in asynchronous multiplayer across multiple devices, rescuing your friends or having them rescue you.


Just when Viewtiful Joe will be joining Combo Crew hasn’t been announced yet. Capcom say more details will be made available in the near future.

    All of my hate, Capcom… All of my hate…

    • SlickRoach

      Monster Hunter is the single thread that keeps me tied to this company anymore, I swear.

      • Spirit Macardi

        Same here. I used to like stuff that they made, but then they either stopped making them or ruined them.

        Right there with ya. No matter how much Capcom may make me rage, I remind myself “They did make MH, so part of their division are still gods.”

        • SlickRoach

          As long they don’t do something incredibly stupid like making a MH game to appeal to the CoD fanbase which I doubt even they’d stoop that low.

    I was just talking VG today. This article killed me a little on the inside.

    When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought for sure that he would be making a cameo in the Wonderful 101…orz

  • Roberto

    thanks Capcom ;-;

  • SlickRoach

    Is that what Joe is reduced to now, a guest star? Why…?

    • Solomon_Kano

      Because he wasn’t reduced to that by Marvel vs. Capcom 3 some two years ago… ?

      • SlickRoach

        Yeah, totally forgot about MvC3. Such a shame too because Viewtiful Joe is one of my single favorite games of all time. But between the choice of never making a Viewtiful Joe game and making one that could be a potential letdown it seems like a lose-lose.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, I’m a big fan of Joe as well. Honestly, if they can’t live up to it, I’d rather they just leave it be. If they get a good idea and the right folks, sure, bring it back. But I wouldn’t mind it staying gone if the alternative is something half-assed.

    • supervamp

      Yeah because being a guest star is bad right?

  • NTaiyokun

    It’s something

  • Ying

    I read that as “Viewtiful Joe to Guest Star in Super Smash Bros” for some reason. Looks like I’m just going to have to keep dreaming

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      More like didn’t pay any attention to Sakurai when he specifically said he not gonna add any more Capcom characters.

  • Kirbichu

    “Inspired by games like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, and Street Fighter”

    One of these games is not a brawler…

    • Solomon_Kano

      There’s a reason for that.

      “Combo Crew will feature multiple heroes to play as, each with their own moves and a combo system with super moves.”

  • AndyLC

    It’s good to see console game companies releasing fun mobile games, there’s no reason mobile games have to be ‘casual only’.

    Also gives me something to put on my phone other than emulators hahah.

  • Göran Isacson

    Anyone who knows what this game will actually play like? like, is it pay to win or something equally heinous to everything good and game-like, or is it an actual game?
