Episode 68: Viewitiful Joe & The CAPCOM 5


A landmark in the video game industry and ultimately, a massive disappointment for Capcom and Nintendo fans alike. What started as a promise for 5 exclusive game to come to the GameCube (Dead Phoenix, Killer 7, PN03, Viewtiful Joe, and Resident Evil 4) turned into Capcom flipping these franchises to other consoles and ultimately the demise of these extremely original IPs (other than RE4 of course). In this week's episode Mike & Neil do a deep dive into this unique moment in video game history and bring on some friends of the show Ali and Brian to help them in their journey. They also cover Viewtiful Joe 2 and Red Hot Rumble, and wonder if we'll ever see a proper final entry into this trilogy.
