Some light at the end of the tunnel

Disappointed that Mega Man Legends 3 is cancelled? You'll still get to try some Mega Man goodness on your 3DS this year at least, as the ESRB has rated Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge.

You know, Nazo Waku Mansion

Capcom COO Thinks Monster Hunter Will Make It to 3DS

That's a quest we'd like to see Capcom take

Prior to Capcom's Captivate 2011 event in April, gamers were hoping for some kind of Monster Hunter-related announcement for the 3DS after the popularity of Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~) for the Wii. Unfortunately, nothing of the sort took place. However, a recent interview with Capcom's European chief operations officer David Reeves, conducted by Middle East..

First Impressions: Resident Evil Revelations

Resident Evil Revelations

A return to survival horror

Although Capcom originally coined the term "survival horror" to describe the first Resident Evil, one can't say that the franchise has been very much about that as of late. Resident Evil 4 and its sequel were far more heavily focused on action rather than suspense, with almost no scares to be found. Of course, many would argue that Resident Evil 4 was one of,..

10 Life Lessons Learned From Mega Man

It's not just blasting, you know

Playing the Mega Man series is cathartic in many ways. You get to listen to great music, appreciate the impressively cartoony visuals Capcom wrung out of the NES hardware, and experiment with many unique and varied abilities. But overall, we tend to like it because it's mindless. It's a platformer with clear...

Talking Point: The Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D Save File Debate

The Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D Save File Debate

Is a single, permanent save file ever enough?

Capcom's decision to limited Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D to a single immortal save file has drawn plenty of discussion recently. It's a big issue, and one that deserves another look. At face value, only having one save file for life is baffling, and there's no precedent we can think of: certainly past Resident Evil games needed multiple save files..

Masachika Kawata from Capcom is clearly excited about bringing a certain franchise to the console. Speaking to CVG, the Resident Evil producer ― who's..
