    Want to be in the movies? Jump into the silver screen and experience life on the other side of the lens in Capcom's joyously quirky adventure.

    Get into the movies and become a celluloid superhero in Capcom's acclaimed and hugely original action-packed adventure. Explore a stunt-filled action movie universe, wielding special visual effects powers made possible only by the magic of movies, and enlist the help of Devil May Cry hero Dante!

    Joe and his girlfriend Silvia are enjoying a night out at the cinema, watching their favourite superhero Captain Blue in action, when something mysterious happens - Silvia is sucked into the screen by a celluloid monster. In his bold attempt to save her, Joe too enters the movie world. While searching for Silvia, he encounters Captain Blue who gives him the powerful V-Watch and grants him the ability to transform into Viewtiful Joe, a powerful, butt-kicking superhero.

    Viewtiful Joe's unique ability to use visual effects (VFX) means you can speed Joe up, slow time down or zoom in on enemies before dispatching them with wild combo moves. The action comes thick and fast as VJ takes on hordes of movie monsters in his quest to find Silvia and save the day.

    • Funky visuals and non-stop action


    • Master special visual effects powers


    • Special guest appearance from Devil May Cry's Dante
