Viewtiful Joe To Guest Star In Brawler For Smartphones


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.
