"Who's the most viewtiful hero around? That's right, yours truly!"
TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM BIO:
Joe transforms himself into the invincible superhero, Viewtiful Joe, and battles enemies to save Movieland, a place of movies. He expertly manipulates VFX Power, a super ability which contains camera tricks such as Slow Motion and Zoom. With these amazingly beautiful tricks, he thrashes his enemies “viewtifully."
Viewtiful Joe originated in the 2D side-scrolling game series of the same name. The game's story concerns Joe, an avid movie-goer whose girlfriend Silvia is kidnapped during a film starring Joe's favorite superhero, Captain Blue. Joe is shortly thereafter thrust into Movieland, where Silvia is taken by the villainous group known as Jadow. After accepting a special V-Watch from Captain Blue, Joe transforms into the tokusatsu-style persona "Viewtiful Joe" and sets out to rescue her.
A fairly good character for beginners, Joe is a speedy character who can apply pressure at range and up close. His projectiles are versatile and his melee attacks are very quick. Though he tends to lack range thanks to his short limbs, he has the mobility to get in when he needs to and can pull off his simple but effective combos. Unfortunately, Joe is a show stealer and has trouble supporting his partner which makes him almost exclusively a point character.
