Capcom starting work on Viewtiful Joe 3?
When a games publisher registers a domain name that rightfully belongs to a videogame title, the implication is fairly obvious. So when Capcom registered the URL www.ViewtifulJoe3.com, keen-nosed investigative journalists would probably be right to declare that a Viewtiful Joe 3 game is on the cards. In which case we would like to make that same announcementĖ Viewtiful Joe 3 is probably on the cards.

Capcom hasnít actually confirmed the existence of this third part in the excellent Viewtiful Joe series, but given the quality and success of the first two VJ titles, it does seem entirely feasible. Also, the fact that Capcom hasnít yet reserved domains with incrementally higher numerical suffixes would suggest that this isnít just a vacant exercise to deny anyone else from grabbing the name.

As soon as we get the official word from Capcom, read it here first.

No suprise really VJ is bringing home the bacon for Capcom. It's sweet when a title that wasn't expected to be such a hit does so well.

Come on, not so long ago there was a bit about SF4, just because nothing has been said, it's successful enough a series that more is inevitable in time. The same goes for VJ.

Quality and success of the first two titles? Wouldn't it be just a bit daft to declare quality and success to a game (Viewitful Joe 2) that hasn't even come out yet?

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Viewtiful Joe, and I can't wait for the sequel. But this just seems like a reassurance plan on Capcom's part as they wait to see how VJ2 does.

or ... Capcom could just be protecting its IP from domain squatters - keeping its options open.

Obviously their going to make another.
At the end of VJ 2, they state it.

They have got to end the story. By the looks of the final episode of the show, the true enemy is REALLY awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3iZV3vpi--U

Why did the series go up in smoke? Capcom really did it this time!

@devil-dante

I agree. When Clover Studios shut down, we lost a good series.
I may just become a videogame programmer and make the third myself.

One last note: there IS a possibility it COULD happen!

The question is: will Capcom allow this to happen? I just hope for their sake they do!
