News: Capcom Not Ruling Out Wii Street Fighter IV

Capcom Not Ruling Out Wii Street Fighter IV

Never say never!

When Street Fighter IV dropped earlier this year, Wii owners once again felt the void of a major multiplatform non-release. But in the crazy upside-down world of evergreen sales patterns and delayed ports of HD games, that's not to say the game'll never see a Wii port. Over at the Capcom-Unity boards, a member questioned whether or not a version of SFIV would, or could, ever hit..

Monster Hunter 3 Gets A Black Bundle In Japan

Capcom and Nintendo sure do like money.

There's no doubt that the newfangled black Wii will light up the charts when it hits Japan. And it wouldn't be much of a stretch to predict that Monster Hunter 3 will print money, too. Capcom's planned bundle must surely be some kind of impending supernova then, because this much star power is sure to light up the charts. Out on August 1, the bundle will..

Mega Man Meets Super Paper Mario

If only this were real. Might we one day see a Mega Man 2.5D?

There is no denying that Capcom’s recent NES styled Mega Man 9 was a great tribute to the series. We loved it but let’s be honest it was just treading old ground. Might Capcom try something new in the future to excite fans of the blue bomber? If they do try something new then we hope it is along the lines of what Peter Sjostrand, a..

New Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles Trailer Shows More Gameplay

At Captivate '09, Capcom released a new trailer for the upcoming Umbrella Chronicles sequel.

The game looks fantastic for a Wii game - although this is no real surprise, because the previous game The Umbrella Chronicles was one of the better-looking Wii games.

Capcom: Mega Man 9 is Best Selling WiiWare Title

As WiiWare games go, Mega Man 9 was pretty bloody special. It also sold a ton! But we would never have thought it would be the best selling WiiWare release thus far; a quick glance at the top 20 games shows it’s in the lower reaches of the chart right now, whereas other strong titles are still doing well.

Anyway, regardless of cold, hard facts, Capcom seems pretty pleased with the retail..

Capcom: No Street Fighter II HD or Bionic Commando Rearmed for WiiWare

Christian Svensson - Capcom’s Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development, for those of you that don’t know - has recently explained exactly why the company is failing to port games like Bionic Commando Rearmed and Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix to WiiWare – the file size restrictions are too harsh and the technology isn’t powerful enough.

Speaking about BCR, he said: It would never fit in the Wiiware filesize so it would have to be disc based and you’d basically have to redo everything for Wii. It would not be an inexpensive process and I’m not sure the r...

EU WiiWare Update: Midnight Bowling and Potpourrii

Let's pretend there were no new WiiWare games this week and call it a day. It'd probably be better than what we really got.

First up is the dreadful Midnight Bowling, which was released in the US earlier this week. Not much companies have bothered to make any competition for Wii Sports's bowling minigame yet - This is probably the reason why. Midnight Bowling throws everything Wii Sports did so..
