That's right, the spandex-clad chop-socky cel-shaded superhero may be headed for the Nintendo Revolution, at least if Clover Studios' president Atsushi Inaba has anything to say about it. The kind folks at 1up were kind enough to translate parts of an interview conducted by the French folks at Jeux France who were French enough to ask some interesting questions regarding the Capcom team's upcoming games and some of their past successes.
After finishing the utterly fantastic looking Okami for PS2, Mr. Inaba intends to get cracking on his next project right away, showing a keen interest in Nintendo's next-gen machine. He says that "if the character and the universe of Viewtiful Joe adapt correctly to the characteristics of Nintendo's future console, and we could indeed conceive a Viewtiful Joe on Nintendo Revolution," the project would see the light of day. "In the contrary case, we will try to make to propose another game on Nintendo Revolution which is as interesting."
As interesting as controlling Joe's Mach-speed kicks and punches with the Revolution controller? That seems unlikely, sir.
Viewtiful Joe joining the Revolution?
