Viewtiful Joe DS shots

As these first shots from Capcom's Viewtiful Joe DS show, the game will retain the same distinctive graphical style and will star a line up of enemies previously encountered in the game's console outings.

Viewtiful Joe DS will feature an all-new story, and Joe's VFX powers will be executed using the touch-screen. Players will be able to divide the bottom screen into two sections, allowing the movement of various objects with the stylus.

The top screen of the DS will normally display a zoom-in of the action, and a slide feature will be incorporated enabling the player to switch the top and bottom screens, effectively giving Joe's attacks more power as he dishes out some henshin-a-go-go flavoured pain to bad guys.

Viewtiful Joe DS will be released for DS in winter 2005
