The main characters in wonderful 101 remind me of Viewtiful Joe

Agreed. It makes sense; Viewtiful Joe was made by Clover Studios, but published by Capcom, who retains the rights. When Capcom cut Clover loose and dissolved the studio, a bunch of ex-Clover staff got together and formed Platinum Games. Which is why the two games look so similar.

On the downside, this is probably the closest thing we're ever going to get to another Viewtiful Joe game, since Capcom no longer seems to have any interest in the IP...

Only the style looks similar, gameplay is nothing alike. Easily looks just as fun though. I expect this game to be a blast to play, the developers clearly have a lot of fun making it.

They're both superheroes with big heads and small bodies.

There's way more similarities than just that. Viewtiful Joe has a very distinct art style. (Super)Heroes with big heads have been done plenty of times.

I agree. Joe was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the characters.

It's like you took Viewtiful Joe, breed it with Pikmin and Wonderful 101 is the child.
