While Joe and his girlfriend Silvia are watching a tokusatsu drama during a date, Silvia is kidnapped by the movie's antagonist and taken into the world of the movies: Movieland. Joe is able to follow Silvia after being picked up and taken into Movieland by the robot Six Majin. Inside the movie, Joe must rescue Silvia from the evil Jadow, the game's organization of villains. To help him, Captain Blue entrusts him with a V-Watch, telling Joe to transform into a superhero upon saying "Henshin" (Japanese for 'Transformation'), but Joe made it into his personal catchphrase, "Henshin-a-go-go, baby!"

Joe is the star of Capcom's hit beat-em-up action platformer, Viewtiful Joe (2003), and the sequel, Viewtiful Joe 2 (2004). Joe has three 'VFX' powers, Slow, Mach Speed, and Zoom in; all of which are designed to emulate camera tricks inspired by the likes of The Matrix.

I've been a big fan of Viewtiful Joe since his debut on the Gamecube. The art style, the stunning graphics, and the amazingly fun gameplay make it a truly unparalleled experience. It's actually quite hard to even fit into a "genre"... Viewtiful Joe practically invented it's own genre. Such an epic game.

After playing through the first Viewtiful Joe, I knew Joe would appear in the VS series if Capcom ever brought it back. :) Joe translated really well into a fighting game character (first in Tatsunoko VS Capcom, then in Marvel VS Capcom 3), and actually plays very similar to how he does in his game (minus some of the cool power-ups & abilities). My only gripe is that his super moves could be a bit better. :/ In closing, if you didn't know, Joe is clearly Tatsunoko inspired. To me he looks like some sort of "midget spawn" of Hurricane Polymar and Casshern... Haha. XD HENSHIN A GO GO BABY!
