With Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D having just launched in Japan, the rest of the world will have several weeks to wait before the game makes it their way.

Wait until you see Edgeworth

Japan's appetite for all things Ace Attorney continues, as Capcom and director Takashi Miike announce a joint project to bring the offbeat detective series to the silver screen.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Sequel Unlikely to Hit the Wii

Wasted opportunity or forward-thinking?

With the impending arrival of Nintendo's next home console, could we expect to see a lower number of sequels turning up on the Wii and see them launching on the Wii's successor instead? Perhaps.

ESRB Rating Outs Mega Man 5 for Virtual Console

Charge your Mega Buster

You can't stop the Blue Bomber's exploits on Virtual Console, as ESRB has rated Mega Man 5 for North America. Interestingly there's no PEGI rating for the game yet, indicating this may be one of the few Virtual Consoles titles to hit North America before Europe. The ESRB makes what was once the pinnacle of intense blasting action sound as exciting as a trip to the cracker..

So, despite everyone's biggest hopes and best intuition, Capcom's Captivate 2011 event came and went without even so much of a sniff of Monster Hunter 3DS.

Biohazard fans have a while to wait

It's no surprise that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will be launching before Resident Evil Revelations does on the 3DS, but it appears the two won't be launching in the same year; with the former scheduled for a June release, we may have to wait a while longer for the latter.
