Viewtiful Joe Playable in mobile brawler Combo Crew
For those not familiar with Joe, he first appeared on home video game consoles as the hero of Viewtiful Joe in 2003. The original garnered a lot of popularity resulting in sequels and versions on other consoles. As gamers and true fans of the original, The Game Bakers team are very happy to pay homage to this cult hero in Combo Crew today, courtesy of Capcom. Like all the other characters in Combo Crew, the new guest-star comes with his own palette of combo moves to unlock and collect while progressing through the arena levels of the 100% tactile brawler game.
â€œCapcom games had a huge impact on my generation and on me personally, as gamer and designer.â€ says Emeric Thoa, creative director at The Game Bakers. â€œIf Iâ€™m perfectly candid about this, Viewtiful Joe is one of many games, along with God Hand, Final Fight or Street Fighter, that have influenced our direction. Many new-gen indie developers have their classics at heart; to get the chance to pay due tributes to a hero of your youth is a true bliss. Weâ€™re so grateful to Capcom for letting Joe fight along the Combo Crew cast.â€
Since good news should always be plural, thereâ€™s another cult gaming figure making a cameo in Combo Crew today. Mythical French game creator Eric Chahi granted us the fantastic opportunity to let you play with Lester Knight from 1991 indie classic â€œAnother Worldâ€ (a.k.a. â€œOut of this Worldâ€ stateside). Lester comes as a free gift to the Combo Crew community.
