Viewtiful Joe 3
Viewtiful Joe 3
DISCLAIMER: THIS HUB IS JUST FOR FUN, THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT VIEWTIFUL JOE 3 WILL EVER BE MADE, OR IF ANY OF THESE IDEAS WILL BE IN IT. ENJOY!
The world of Viewtiful Joe revolves around a movie-loving, goatee sporting, regular guy named Joe who turns into a superhero with the help of a V-Watch. His powers are all based around camera tricks, such as Mach Speed, Slow and Zoom.
The Viewtiful Joe series spawned four video games and an 8-season anime in its hayday. Unfortunately, the company behind the series, Clover Studios, was dissolved in 2006. Joe's most recent appearance since then was in 2010s Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars as a playable character.
So in honor of this undeniably awesome franchise (and in hopes that this game will actually be made), I present to you this fan-made Hub of ideas for Viewtiful Joe 3.
Again, this Hub is just meant to be enjoyed by fans and newcomers alike.
Viewitful Joe's Theme - Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (Music)
In Viewtiful Joe 3, our hero and his friends are hard at work filming Joe's first movie in 3D!
But while shooting the opening scene, a group of bad guys called "The Grey Avengers" appear to sabotage the film!
They threaten to make the make the movie so bad that it gets released straight-to-video!
Our viewtiful hero can't allow this to happen, so he teams up with his girlfriend Silvia, and his sister Jasmine to take on the new threat and save the silver screen, yet again!
Curiously, it seems their leader's name is Jasper, and he seems knows an awful lot about Joe, Silvia, Jasmine and Captain Blue...
New VFX Powers
In Viewtiful Joe 3, Jasmine finally gets a V-Watch of her very own. Her "Henshin" alter-ego is Radical Jasmine, and she has 3 brand new VFX powers to help shake things up:
3D – Makes objects in the background pop out to damage enemies, solve puzzles or do other crazy things. Things that can be made 3D will have a red-blue-green haze around them .
Freeze Frame – A snapshot around Jasmine is taken; anything caught in that area is frozen in place for as long as the button is held. This can be used to escape mob attacks, to use frozen enemies as stepping stones, or to get in a few cheap hits while the effect lasts!
Stunt Double – A hologram is created in front Jasmine as long as the button is held. The double can be used to pass through walls, bypass enemy shields and to absorb damage headed her way!
Movieland, the fictional world of the movies where the games take place, is the backdrop for Viewtiful Joe 3. This time, each of the 7 new levels are is based off of an actual, real-world movie:
Pirates of the Deleted Scene - Rid the seas of the notorious pirates who are being led by Blade Master Alastor!
The Were-Script Project - Fight through a haunted house while facing werewolves, vampires and other creatures of the night!
Stuntmen in Black - Infiltrate the enemy skyscraper while fending off the three-piece wearing, combo-launching security!
The Good, The Bad and The Viewtiful - Defend the dusty town in the Old West from being overrun by outlaws!
Roboprop III - Destroy all the defective robots in the factory!
Starship Bloopers - Ride Six Machine through outer space and defeat the incoming alien threat!
All Films Go to Credits
- The last level, and also the oldest place in Movieland. A place
entierly in black-in-white, it is also The Grey Avengers HQ. Defeat them
once and for all!
And that concludes this Hub on Viewtiful Joe 3. When I first got introduced to the games, I loved ever minute of it. I just hope Capcom makes another one, because VJ is too cool to just let die!
I know that the games didn't sell as well as they should off, so maybe in Viewtiful Joe 3 they could include more extras, like a multiplayer mode (i.e. Red Hot Rumble), some kind of challenges / achievements, and a harder difficulty where if you take one hit you die (Director's Cut?)
Anyway, I hope you liked the Hub. Feel free to contribute in the comments section.
Henshin a Go-Go Baby!
