A Resident Evil 2 Remake Has Been Confirmed

Hoping beyond hope for a Wii U or NX version

It's with some hesitation that we're sharing the happy news that a Resident Evil 2 Remake has, after much demand, been confirmed.

"There is no furry without fury"

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been available in the West for about six months now, in the process becoming a success in Capcom's quest to boost the IP's sales outside of its guaranteed popularity in Japan. It's a fantastic entry in the series that's both familiar and fresh, with core mechanics and systems in place...

Mega Man Legacy Collection Blasting Onto the 3DS in Early 2016

That's still technically 'Winter'

Mega Man Legacy Collection arrives soon on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, and Capcom has now given a little clarity to its 'Winter' release window for the 3DS version. It'll arrive on the portable in early 2016 - as a download and a physical retail title - so we can take this off our potential Holiday 2015 line-up...

Here's What Luigi Mansion Arcade Looks Like In The Ghoulish Flesh

Ain't afraid of no ghost?

Pre-Orders Open for Capcom's Official Wearable Mega Man Replica Helmet

Yours for just (!) $150 + postage

Capcom is a company that knows how to produce merchandise of varying standards, from awful tat to desirable but expensive collectables. We're not sure where this wearable Mega Man replica helmet comes in with those definitions, to be honest - the 'replica' reference in the product description is also amusing, as how...

Try Not To Jump At This New Trailer For Capcom's Luigi's Mansion Arcade Game 

Sure to suck up some coins

Earlier this year we reported on the news that Capcom and Sega were working on an arcade semi-sequel to Luigi's Mansion, which features first-person, ghost-busting gameplay.

Capcom Thinks It Can Shift 2.5 Million Copies of Monster Hunter X By March Next Year

Hunting huge pots of gold

Last month, Capcom's financial report suggested that the company expects to sell 2.5 million units of an undisclosed Monster Hunter title by March 2016 - a title which the company has since confirmed is the forthcoming Monster Hunter X. That's a pretty bold prediction, but one which seems positively pessimistic when you...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate June DLC Brings Animal Crossing, Devil May Cry and Awesome Designs

Oh my…

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is an enormous game, to a daunting degree. It keeps getting bigger thanks to free DLC, too - Capcom's playing the role of the devil to our Homer: "you want more donuts, have all the donuts you can eat!" Oh, we'll keep eating. That daft intro aside, Capcom has announced the details of the June DLC - they're...

There's A New Producer In Charge Of All Things Mega Man At Capcom

Keep those expectations in check, people

Boy, Capcom really doesn't seem to have a clue what to do with Mega Man right now. The Blue Bomber's 25th birthday came and went with whimper, and the biggest news relating to the character in recent memory is that he'll be starring in a TV series - but not until 2017, when he celebrates 30 years in the...

New Mega Man TV Series Blasting Its Way to Screens in... 2017

Epic trolling, Capcom

2017 is the 30th Anniversary of the Mega Man franchise. Now, admittedly, the 25th Anniversary was a tad rubbish for those of us that like to play games - Capcom released figurines, USB sticks and tissue dispensers, but the only game we got was a free fan-game on PC. Oh, Capcom... Will 2017 finally bring the series back? We can...
