Trial ModeEdit

Trial mode is a mode excusive to the PSP version of Viewtiful Joe Red Hot Rumble.  It intially consists of 10 trials but more are unlocked as the player begins to clear the stages.  Some trials can only be played with a set character while others can be done with any previously unlocked character.  Once a trial with a new character has been completed, that character can then be selected in the Story and Vs Modes.

  • Trial 21 prevents Charles and Hulk from being used.  This could be due to them being the only characters that are able to fully dodge and block attacks.
  • Trial 28 is the only trial that offers only two character choices.
  • Trial 39 is the only trial that uses an EX Color change character.
  • Trail 40 is the only one to use a stage not available in regular gameplay.
