Matters of Import: E.X. Troopers Brings The Heat To 3DS

E.X. Troopers Brings The Heat To 3DS

Capcom however, remains frosty

Capcom’s E.X. Troopers may not be the latest or biggest Japanese 3DS game around, but it’s certainly no less worthy of inclusion here than any other game we’ve previously covered on Matters of Import and — as this and its high-resolution PS3 port are the only E.X. Troopers games so far — it is sadly still...

The First Thirty Minutes Of The Best 3DS Action Game You've Never Played

That's E.X. Troopers, by the way

"Like Lost Planet, but anime" could easily have been the most cynical boardroom pitch ever, but thankfully Capcom couldn't have any poured any more love into E.X. Troopers if it had tried. We've got a full Matters of Import feature coming up soon on this amazing title, so in the meantime grab yourself a hot beverage...

While we get Mighty Bomb Jack

Next week, Japanese 3DS owners will be able to step into the super-deformed shoes of Metro City's famous wrestling mayor Mike Haggar thanks to the release of Mighty Final Fight on the 3DS Virtual Console.

The first three adventures in one handy package

Capcom is releasing a special Ace Attorney collection for the 3DS which contains the first three games in the best-selling series. While the 3DS console's unique screen will be used to give each game a sense of depth, they will remain effectively unchanged from a graphical perspective. English...

Monster Hunting With Kerry: Taking Baby Steps With Great Jaggi

Warning: Article contains gross incompetence

Hello! Kerry here, your inept but endlessly enthusiastic guide through the dangerous and thrilling world of Monster Hunter 4.

Capcom Claims Its New Panta Rhei Game Engine Can Be Adapted To Any System

And that means Wii U and 3DS

Capcom's MT Framework game engine was pretty adaptable — it powered Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS as well as providing the horsepower for the company's home console titles — and the Japanese studio has gone on record to confirm that its successor will be just as versatile. Panta Rhei is Capcom's...

The Rockman X Sound Box Album Set Includes Four Tracks Cut From Mega Man X

And now you can listen to them for free

Years from now we may refer to "doing a Capcom Anniversary", with a knowing wink and nudge. For example, in a parallel universe Nintendo didn't celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Zelda franchise by releasing Skyward Sword with a special CD and a game plot right at the beginning of the timeline, but sold us...

Capcom's Local Japanese Commercials For Monster Hunter 4 Are Pretty Funny

Cats, singers and wrestlers all feature

Monster Hunter 4 launched in Japan last year but Capcom is giving the title another promotional push on home soil with a series of commercials which are exclusive to different regions in the country.

12 Days of Christmas - Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Devours Time and Pushes Boundaries

Wii U and 3DS cross-play brings Hunters together

Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii was a standout not just for its epic scale and unique style, but for its ability to bring owners of the system together in a solid, cohesive online component; that was a rarity. With honourable exceptions such as Mario Kart Wii, many titles on Nintendo's last-gen system...

Mega Man Board Game Hits Kickstarter

The Blue Bomber, Unplugged

How about we shift away from recent Mega Man-related Kickstarter madness, take a deep breath, and cleanse the palette with some other Mega Man-related Kickstarter news? Back in July we reported on the intent of Jasco Games to develop a Mega Man tabletop game, trading in pixels for pieces. That game has now hit

Proposed Ghosts 'N Goblins Reboot Is Cancelled Following An Intellectual Property Dispute

Not all that shocking, really

Remember the Kickstarter campaign we reported on a while back about a possible reboot of Capcom's Ghosts 'n Goblins? The team behind the project stated that they would try and produce the game with or without Capcom's blessing, but did say that even if the Japanese giant refused to become involved, the name of the title...

Capcom Unity's Christmas Card Design Gets Festive With Monster Hunter

Cute and not deadly

It's the season of giving, and we can expect game companies to give us attractive image files of Christmas greetings; it's not quite a shiny new game wrapped in festive paper but, still, it's the best that's on offer. Capcom Unity's approach this year was to run a contest for its readers to design the company's official card,...

Festive Monster Hunter UK Meet-Up To Include Awesome Nintendo Prizes

Serious hunting ahead

The ongoing absence of Western localisation news for Monster Hunter 4 may be a sore point for fans of the franchise, but it's clear that the series does have a core of dedicated fans outside of Japan. We don't know whether Capcom deems that fanbase to be sufficient as yet, but nevertheless online matches can still be organised...
