Capcom Turns to Comedy Duo in Quirky Marketing for The Great Ace Attorney

No objections

The Great Ace Attorney is approaching its court date - oh alright, release date - in Japan, and Capcom is ramping up its marketing for the new 3DS entry. While we may be hoping for news of localisation, in the meantime we can enjoy the attention the game is getting in its homeland. With a 19th Century setting and Sherlock Holmes...

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. The game's official site has now gone live, along with a trailer which gives you a taste of what the final product has to offer. The final name is...

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...

​Fresh Monster Hunter X (Cross) Details Emerge From Japan

Beastly bonus

This week Japanese publication Famitsu has some more details on Capcom's freshly-revealed 3DS title Monster Hunter X (Cross) - which is said to be 60 percent complete and will launch in Japan in Winter 2015.

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...

Capcom Is Bringing The Nintendo Exclusive Resident Evil Zero To Every Modern Gaming System But The Wii U

Wii U's fate seemingly sealed for the HD Resi re-releases

The Nintendo exclusive, Resident Evil Zero, was well received by fans and critics alike when it was originally released on the GameCube in 2002. The Wii port – released in 2008 – did not receive the same level of applause. This particular entry in Capcom's long-running survival horror...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's May DLC Brings Metroid, Mega Man and Street Fighter Madness

The unlocks seem relatively sane, too

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is a massive game, and Capcom also throws in free monthly DLC to keep us busy. Though we've occasionally complained about the sometimes outrageous difficulty of some of the quest unlocks, it certainly gives us all plenty to aim for with cross-over outfits and awesome weapons. The May...
