Viewtiful Joe™: Double Trouble™, aside from having a whole load of trademarks, is our Joe’s much awaited handheld debut.

Some blighters only gone and nicked the ‘essence of super hero-ness’ from the set of Captain Blue’s newest movie and its Joe’s job to go get it back quick sharpish. It seems that it’s the sinister Queen of the Madow who’s to blame, so playing as Joe you have to crush all of her many minions with your Viewtiful powers and get back the footage she’s stolen containing the ‘super hero-ness’. You’ll also save Captain Blue’s film from the cutting room floor at the same time. Double bonus!

So, barking mad scene set, its time to get to work hero! Along with your trusty sidekicks, girlfriend Sylvia and your sister Jasmine. Sylvia films Joe to enable his Viewtiful Joe™ super powers to snap into action, whilst Jasmine helps Joe out on his quest by providing him with necessary health upgrades, as well as becoming a playable character in parts of the game.

You must fight your way through six enormous levels dotted throughout the movie studio, with each stage having its own unique theme, ranging from a miniature world inspired by the movies to a Christmas nightmare theme. Plus
for hardened Capcom fans there is even a level inspired by Resident Evil using music from the game, set in an old mansion.

Between each level, you get the opportunity to buy ‘Power ups’ with the reward points you’ve gained – including handy extra moves, additional lives and items.
Viewtiful Joe™: Double Trouble™ also features the ability to select your own level of difficulty, so whether you are a hero in training or a fully-fledged superman there is a setting for you.

The touch screen is used to physically interact with the game when using the Special VFX powers. By collecting these powers through battle and puzzle solving elements, players can use the screen to zoom in on specific areas, rumble the earth by rubbing the screen or even split a room or object in half and interact with them separately.

With its cool cel shaded visuals, funky dance music and clever use of the DS’s touch screen functionality Viewtiful Joe™: Double Trouble™ is sure to appeal to fans of the series, old and new.
