Viewtiful Joe makes his debut on the PSP in Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble (VJRHR). Captain Blue has decided to retire, and is therefore looking for a successor who can take over as the hero in his films. This is where Joe and his various rivals must battle it out, set against the cartoon-like film set backgrounds, in order to prove they deserve the role. Backdrops include the wild west in 'Midnight Shootout', fighting on top of an aircraft against a giant dinosaur in 'King John Dogfight' and fighting with rivals as they fall from a high building in 'Sky-High Building Battle'. Gamers will be able to use various background elements to their advantage to attack their opponents.

New to the Viewtiful Joe universe is 'versus' gameplay, where players can partake in extreme versus fighting action during the audition. The PSP's Ad Hoc mode also gives up to three players the opportunity to battle against each other in the Multiplayer Battle Mode to see who rules the big screen.

There are several exclusive features only available to the PSP. Dante, from the game Devil May Cry, is an unlockable character, complete with his own moves and storyline. There are several challenging mini-games for players to enjoy too, in an all new single player Trial Mode.
