Rumour: We May See Big Capcom Announcements Next Week

Posted by James Newton

Monster press event planned

Capcom's Captivate event is just a few days away, and Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang) is reporting the publisher has at least six games to show off.

Known titles include Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3Dm Street Fighter X Tekken — a 3DS version of which is rumoured — and non-Nintendo titles Asura's Wrath and Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City. Even the less mathematically-able should be able to see that's only four titles confirmed for attendance, leaving the door open for an announcement or two.

I wish they gave some more Wii love our way. But "Monster Hunter TriDS" is a sure thing.

Nooo, don't tease me with 3D monsters James, I can't handle it!! D:
rumors are flying about a MH3D announcement. fingers crossed! :3



Highwinter said:

Somebody posted about this on the forums a few weeks ago, it's pretty likely to be a Monster Hunter announcement and I'd be surprised if they weren't porting Freedom 3 over to the 3DS, since they've confirmed it's coming out in English.. Just not on the PSP.



LunarJade said:

I'm hoping they'll announce an NA release for Ace Attorney Investigations 2!
They announced the first one at this event last year, I think, so that's what I'm mostly hoping for.

I know EXACTLY what your thinking!

#9: Nintendo vs. Capcom
#10: Mega Man Universe may be cancelled on consoles... but 3DS?

I think the subheading is misleading! It will surely start rumors that aren't confirmed! ...just like the rest of the internet

Anyways, the only title I'm excited about is the PW/PL crossover.



James said:

@lz How is it misleading? This is a big press event, hence, "monster press event"



Tails said:

I honestly would like to see something other than Monster Hunter. I still can't get into Monster Hunter on the Wii. Nintendo vs Capcom i would love to see.. But of course that's my opinion.




I'm actually very happy with the list of speculative announcements in the title article post. I can see Monster Hunter Freedom 3 coming to the 3DS (although that's not for me). SF vs?x Tekken and Marvel vs Capcom 3 3ds is what I'm really after,



dizzy_boy said:

why can`t capcom port over their fighters to the wii aswell.
i can`t see the point of paying out for either the ps3 or 360 just for the sake of a couple of games.



Capt_N said:

Mega Man 5/6/7/X/X2/X3 released on VC. I expect Caps will release MM5 this year. Also, a translation of Mega Man, & Bass for the SNes VC, too would be awesome.

Mega Man (meta-series/Gameboy) collection, or just release them to the 3DS VC when it's shop goes on-line next month.

Mega, & Chun-Li in the next Smash.

Capcom Vs. DC (I would love playing as Mega Man beating up on DC villains.)

That is all! For now, anyway...



MasterGraveheart said:

@Capt_N: I would very much approve of Mega Man and Chu-Li in the next Smash Bros., especially Chun-Li. Can never have enough butt-kicking women.



WolfRamHeart said:

What I would really like to hear more about is the status of Mega Man Legends 3. After recently hearing that it was never given the official green light, I am a bit worried that it might end up getting cancelled.



Megaman256 said:

Capcom did such a great job with Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, I don't see why not give us Marvel Vs. Cacomp 3. I'm surprise not many people are talking about it but that would be an awesome game for the 3DS. Also would be nice to have Megaman 1-6 on a cartridge using the specail 3D effects. Megaman X series would also be nice!



emirblade said:

A megaman battle network mmo would be so awesome. customizable rockmans in 3D would be awesome.



Megumi said:

Whatever happened to this Capcom Captivate or whatever that's supposed to happen today and tomorrow? I thought they were going to say something, now I gotta wait another week?! Waaah! T_T

DarkStalkers Dimensions

There could be a Darkstalkers game that will only be out on the HD systems, and if we’re lucky, then it may come out for the 3DS too. I really like Darkstalkers, I wish Demitri had been in more games. However, it's about as difficult to get excited about it as it was to get excited about Marvel vs Capcom 3 because I only own Nintendo systems. It seems that the Nintendo 3DS is the only chance I have of playing mutiplatform titles. They don’t even have Super Street Fighter IV or Marvel vs Capcom 3, or even Super Street Fighter II HD Remix for PC or Onlive. I want all of these games, but the only one I could ever get was Super Street Fighter IV for the 3DS. I don’t think I’ll actually get to play whatever it is they are trying to hype up.



thesignpainter said:

its amazing the new level portable gaming has achieved, we're seeing console quality games on a portable! that something new to me.



irken004 said:

Now that I think about it, announcing Monster Hunter Frontier for PC/360 in NA would be awesome




I'm a good little Tingle, short and stout!......blah blah blehh..? I want Monster Hunterrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!



CerberusAzdin said:

Can someone please send this thread to Capcom? We are suffering from Monster Hunter Syndrome. I think its fair to say (myself included) that there are ALOT of people who will PAY £39.99 FOR THIS GAME. Capcom, WE THE WESTERN WORLD WILL GIVE YOU MONEY FOR A MONSTER HUNTER GAME ON 3DS.

Please pass on to whoever it may concern at Capcom !)



WaveBoy said:

Power Stone 3!....Ya, in my trippy psychadelic dreams. Somebody please bring this franchise back to the dead.



Xkhaoz said:

MH! MH! Even though I've never played it except for a PSP demo, I'd love a 3DS version that would eat up my time like Charlie Sheen drinks up Tiger Blood!



Bassman_Q said:

Fingers crossed that it's either Monster Hunter 3D or...

Okami 3D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111



Megumi said:

...I hope we don't get over excited...I get the feeling that we'll get disappointed with no 3DS/Wii announcements at all...(in that case we'll have to attack their HQ with a missile or two, lol)



HolyMackerel said:

@irken You know what, a western release of Monster Hunter Frontier is a far more exciting idea than MH for the 3DS. Yes please!



Link79 said:

I wouldn't be surprised if their big announcement was going out of business. With Inafune Gone and Mega man seemingly dying what's left for this company?



killer6370 said:

just give me streetfighter x tekken and no one gets hurt^^, i really want this i need this, my precious treasure (2 of the best fighting series in 1 cartridge yay ) same as for ace attorneyvs Layton ^^^^ cross over ftw



Traxx said:

1. Monster Hunter 3D
