BAFTA nominations for Viewtiful Joe

Capcom's Viewtiful Joe has received three nominations for the inaugural BAFTA Games Awards.


Capcom has today announced that Viewtiful Joe has received no fewer than three nominations for the inaugural British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Games Awards. The manga-style fighting game has been nominated in the Best Design, Best Intro/Animation, and Best GameCube Game categories.

"We're immensely proud to have been nominated for three BAFTA Games Awards," said Ben Le Rougetel, senior PR manager at Capcom Entertainment Europe. "Ever since it was announced, Viewtiful Joe has stood out as a quality title, offering something completely different from the me-too games so often forced on the public. We're grateful to BAFTA and its panel of judges for considering Viewtiful Joe as examples of the best in design and animation. It's good to have our opinions--and those of the public--validated by such an esteemed group of individuals."

The winners of the BAFTA Games Awards will be announced at a ceremony in February 2004. For more information on Viewtiful Joe, check out our full review of the game.
