    I thought the detective/adventure genre died in the US? I'm surprised they are taking this risk. But maybe localization and distribution costs for GBA/DS games are lower?

    Viewtiful Joe didn't sell good at all, but did that stop Capcom from making a sequel? This game is quite big in Japan, so worth a shot at the market here.

    Ltd. Viewtiful Joe NA (GC): 291,494
    Ltd. Viewtiful Joe JPN (GC): 115k<when last tracked over a year ago
    Total sales=406,494


    Inaccurate japanese numbers,- the UK, PAL, & EU territory VJ numbers. While I don't expect them to be substantial, 500k worldwide would be quite a feasible estimate. I remember an interview with the then head of Studio 4 Shinji Mikami stating that all of the Capcom 5 titles were developed by small teams, & had limited development budgets. (Excluding RE4) It's safe to say that with this title they made at the least a decent to even a substantial profit. It will easily eclipse 300k+ in Ltd. sales in NA alone this year, as it continues to sell.

    Oh, I messed sales numbers up, sorry. :oops:

    I was thinking about the bad sales of the PlayStation 2 version of Viewtiful Joe (I looked it up, 46,954 units sold) and the even worse sales of Viewtiful Joe 2 (9,306 units sold in North America?). I mixed these up, and thought the sequel did better, my bad.

    This game sounds quite intriguing, for those that have played it, how exactly does it play & progress? Are you responsible for finding clues, witnesses, etc. with the help of the psychic?
