Viewtiful Joe

Viewtiful Joe is a side scrolling beat 'em up video game franchise created by Japanese game designer Hideki Kamiya, who had previously directed Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry.  The series as a whole has received much critical acclaim, although later games have never lived up to the first two in the series. Developed and published by Capcom and Clover Studio, this is a game that fits well into the canon of both companies and what they are well known for.
