Too hot to handle.

Hideki Kamiya, the creator of the brilliant GameCube series Viewtiful Joe and now working for Platinum Games, told Game Informer that he would love to finish the series.

I don't have the rights to any of the IPs that I've made. They belong to the companies that publish them, and they're a business so they have a right to exploit those IPs as they want... Viewtiful Joe is probably all I've got left. That story is incomplete so I'd like to finish it someday. But that would probably be the most difficult one to do.

For those of you that played the Viewtiful series you'll know that at the end of the first game Captain Blue tells Joe that he will be needed twice more to save the world. Joe hasn't been seen in his own game since the DS's disappointing Double Trouble, although he is a playable character in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Could we be seeing the concluding instalments of his story in the near future? We hope so.
