"I wish I could talk about it but it's really cool"
Putting the "do" in Hadoken
High hopes for Monster Hunter XX in 2017

More love for Mega Man
With the re-release of Mega Man X on the Wii's Virtual Console back in April, it looks like the X series is set to return as a classification from the Entertainment Software Rating Board suggests, Tucked away within the ESRB website is a rating for Mega Man X2. Originally released on the SNES back in 1994, the action platformer was also made available on the GameCube as part..
Gargoyle's Quest next week
Capcom has supported Virtual Console on Wii for years, so it's good to see it getting behind the 3DS Virtual Console with the same gusto. The company has just announced its line-up of 3DS Virtual Console games for the rest of the year, with some quality titles in there. Next week in Europe sees the release of Gargoyle's...
Classic doesn't always mean "good"
Resident Evil and voice acting go together like WiiWare and fireplace simulators. This latest trailer for Resident Evil Revelations shows the series has lost none of its love of the ridiculous when it comes to giving voices to its main characters. Chris Redfield and new partner Jessica Sherawat must explore a vast...
Rocking the boat
It may be a journalistic cliché to say that a game represents a "return to the series' roots", but in the case of Resident Evil Revelations, it seems apt. Capcom just granted us access to a series of previously classified materials, including new screenshots, trailers and information about the survival horror game. With an early 2012 release date rubber-stamped on the..
So many letters
Right off the bat, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition sold well, topping the 3DS charts and becoming the best-selling third party game on the machine. Producer and self-confessed Blanka lover Yoshinori Ono recently spoke about more Capcom fighters coming to the machine, including crossover scrapper Street Fighter X Tekken. While Ono said the game is "possible", he first..
A glimmer of hope?
CyberConnect2, the developer behind the acclaimed Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, is currently collaborating with Capcom on Asura's Wrath for PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360, but what would CEO and President Hiroshi Matsuyama like to work on next? When posed the question recently, his answer was none other than the freshly cancelled fan-driven Mega Man Legends 3. It would be Mega Man..
"We'd never ever blame fans"
Last night, Capcom Europe responded to fan inquiries regarding the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3 with a Tweet that it's now admitting was perhaps not the right choice of words: it's a shame the fans didn't want to get more involved :-( if we saw there was an audience for MML3 people might change minds Now the...
Capcom COO cagey
The third party Wii U games video shown at E3 had plenty of talking heads, but not all of them had games to show off. Some big names weren't present at all however, with Capcom a notable absentee from the jollity. That could all change in September though, according to Capcom COO David Reeves. In a recent interview with MEGamers, Reeves suggests the company may have something to..
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. While of course age ratings aren't cast-iron release confirmations — PEGI rated Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version after all —...
Mega Man Legends 3 has easily become one of the more interesting projects in development for the 3DS, with its influence on fan input in the form of an interactive online devroom, votes to decide character designs and more and an announced Prototype Version, once planned to launch alongside the eShop, which would showcase the game...
You know, Nazo Waku Mansion
Capcom's Nazo Waku Mansion isn't content with just 3D graphics — it's using 3D sound too, along with almost every other 3DS feature imaginable, as you can see in this video below. The young lady playing the game uses the console's gyro sensor, motion detection, microphone, touch screen and more in ways that include pushing a child on a swing, DJing at a concert,..
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..
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,..
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...
So says producer
3DS has already produced some pretty stellar-looking games, but Capcom is already heading for the graphical high ground with next year's Resident Evil: Revelations, with producer Masachika Kawata confident it'll be among the best looking games on the system. Citing recent release Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D as a current high watermark for 3DS graphical quality, Kawata is..
Dark days are over
The Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D save file debate is only just abating, but Capcom has certainly noticed the ire it attracted online, and has spoken directly to its fans about the issue. In a video posted on Capcom Unity, Capcom US Vice President Christian Svensson acknowledged the issue and strongly hinted that a single, delete-proof save file would be a one-off: I think..
That leaves begging or stealing, we guess
The decision to allow one permanent save file in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D — for better or worse — continues to attract attention, with North American rental company GameFly choosing not to offer the game to its subscribers. No statement was given, but the game's page simply says: Not RentableNOTE: This game is not rentable due to game save..
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..
Business as usual
The news that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D save data cannot be deleted sparked a frenzy worldwide, with rental companies and retailers working out the impact it'll have on their businesses. Major games retailer GameStop made the bold decision not to trade the game in from customers, but has now changed its corporate mind and will accept trade-ins from today. Although it's not..
Would you love to see one?
While the prospect of developing for the Wii U has excited some developers, others remain less vocal and instead, have almost chosen to wait and see what other developments take place from now until its 2012 launch. Masachika Kawata from Capcom is clearly excited about bringing a certain franchise to the console. Speaking to CVG, the Resident Evil producer ― who's..
Lives on and on like so many zombies
Once you progress in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, out tomorrow in the US and on Friday in UK/EU, the way you play will forever be changed. That's because the game does not allow you to reset your save data. That's right – if you buy the game used or from a friend, you'll forever remain stuck with the...
Jill Valentine's new partner
It was a year ago that Capcom released that Resident Evil Revelations trailer showing Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield at odds with each other over some unknown situation. Since then, most of Capcom's focus has understandably been on Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, but thankfully, the wait for more information on the game is now over. Revelations is set in 2005, in
Capcom reveals alternative costumes
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. Luckily, Capcom is still in the mood for teasing as the mercenaries' alternative costumes have now been revealed. The ability to unlock new garbs is nothing new to the franchise, so fans shouldn't be so..
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. The appointment of Miike as director is an interesting choice, as his past work spans everything from Yatterman to the severely gory Ichi the Killer. With Ace Attorney Investigations 2 not..
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. What we do know is if there's one sequel that's going to get developed that won't see a release on the Wii, it's the...
In Japan, that is
Capcom's experimentation with 3D sound in its upcoming adventure game Nazo Waku Yakata (roughly translated as Nazo Waku Mansion) certainly gathered interest when initial game details were revealed in March. Now courtesy of the game's official website, the Japanese release date has been announced, a move that's sure to remind some...
Find out why Barry is in the game and Leon isn't
When the playable characters in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D were revealed with Barry Burton being the eighth and final member; some were left wondering why other characters were left out, in particular, Resident Evil 2 protagonist Leon Kennedy. Speaking to
Clips at the ready
Now we know the starting cast for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, with Barry Burton rounding-off the cast, and now we know when Europeans will be able to get their hands on the game: 1st July. We played the game back in January, so be sure to read our First Impressions: Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Capcom's sho
He doesn't know what it is
Capcom has released some new screenshots of upcoming Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and with them, confirms the last of the eight characters we'll be playing as in the game. As you can see, the newest member of the mercenaries team is Barry Burton, one of the original characters from the first Resident Evil game...
Keeps signing those deals
Nintendo pledged to give more support to third party publishers on 3DS, signing European distribution and marketing deals for Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition and Dead or Alive: Dimensions. Now you can add Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D to that list, as Nintendo of Europe has signed on to bring the game to Europe. In a...
Axe no questions
This just in: the upcoming carnage featured in Capcom's Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D has made it onto UK news channels. The latest report comes from RETV, with more footage of the outbreak of over-the-top violence as well as the first shots of experienced zombie-fighter Rebecca Chambers. The rash of zombie attacks is expected to reach a head when the 3DS game reaches North..
Join the Project
Capcom's ready to bring something new to the Nintendo 3DS eShop next month, with Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version offering a taste of the upcoming Mega Man Legends 3. We now have the first footage of the downloadable game, and it's shaping up pretty nicely. At the moment we have no firm word on when the eShop will launch, game...
3DSWare to start off with a bang
Soon after Mega Man Legends 3 was announced for 3DS, Capcom made it clear that they wanted to take fan input seriously and design a game for the players. They opened the Devroom to let gamers connect with the development team and vote on aspects of the title, but now they've taken things one step further, announcing...
Capcom the Re-Animator
The arrival of the Resident Evil series on the 3DS is the bearer of two gifts: an anticipated return to the series' exploration roots by way of Resident Evil Revelations, and online cooperative action in spin-off title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. Two titles offering two different zombie-related experiences, but both wil
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...
Give F5 a break
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. Capcom Europe confirmed via Twitter that there was no Monster Hunter content shown off at the event last week, nor were there any Ace Attorney-related revelations either. In fact, there were no new games for Nintendo formats..
(Not) Coming to America
Capcom's spiky-haired Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney has enjoyed considerable critical success since his first DS appearance several years ago, but it seems the latest outing for his nemesis/friend Miles Edgeworth won't see the light of day in the Western world. Capcom's corporate officer Christian Svensson recently revealed the publisher had decided not to localise the game..
Monster press event planned
Capcom's Captivate event is just a few days away, and Japanese magazine Famitsu (via Andriasang) is reporting the publisher has at least six games to show off. Known titles include Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3Dm Street Fighter X Tekken — a 3DS version of which is rumoured — and non-Nintendo titles Asura's Wrath...
According to Wesker, things are just warming up
In celebrating 15 years of Resident Evil, Capcom has released a trailer that takes us back to where it all began, as well as where the franchise will be taking us in the not-so-distant future. Narrated by Albert Wesker, the trailer compiles footage of games both old and new. From the upcoming high-definition versions of Resident Evil 4 and Resident..
Or read the code inside
SpotPass, so we're told, will deliver fresh updates straight to your 3DS: new characters, new content, all automatically and for free. Don't believe us? Ask a Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition player, as they recently received a new figurine from Capcom through thin air. While a level 7 golden Blanka statue doesn't sound...
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. According to the official Resident Evil Facebook page, Capcom is planning to release..
Into battle once more
If the rumours are true and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is indeed set for release on 17th June, it's looking like being a very good month for 3DS owners as the trailer below shows. Returning characters Jill Valentine and Albert Wesker pop up in the game to dispense justice with both barrels, blowing up the infected,...
With free demo included
Today Capcom announced that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will come with a Resident Evil Revelations demo, but when can UK gamers get their hands on the multiplayer monster mash? As soon as 17th June, according to ratings board BBFC. The board slapped a 15 certificate on the game and its included demo — named Resident...
Console's first demo
Gory team shooter Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D is set to show 3DS owners what their console can do when it's released in a few months, but it'll also give gamers a taste of more traditional Biohazard outing Resident Evil: Revelations in the form of an included playable demo. The demo will take players on board the ocean...
Wants more noise made
It's wall-to-wall fighting game news on 3DS at the moment: Nintendo will publish Dead or Alive Dimensions in May, and Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition producer Yoshinori Ono is in London for the console's launch. If Ono gets his own way, the onslaught of fighting games won't peter out in May, as he wants to bring upcoming...
Websited, that is
Yesterday we reported on Capcom's 3D sound adventure Nazo Waku Yakata, and now the publisher has opened a website to show off the game's graphical side too. The official website contains a few small screenshots showing some of the strange situations you'll find in the mystery mansion: bees, matches and old crones feature, though no sign of the already notorious "bathing suit..
3D visuals? How about 3D sound?
Who needs buttons when you have sound? That's the approach that Capcom is taking with regards to its upcoming adventure game for the 3DS. As detailed in the latest issue of Famitsu and translated by AndriaSang, Nazo Waku Yakata (Nazo Waku Mansion) is a game that has been loosely termed as a "sound adventure" because of its unique control scheme that omits..
Will it have anything to do with bean curd?
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D might not be the full Resident Evil experience that Resident Evil Revelations will be, but producer Masachika Kawata assures us that fans of the series won't be disappointed with the unlockables that Capcom has planned. Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine, when asked...
Ono, it's true
Capcom brawler Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition is one of the stand-out titles in the list of 3DS launch games, so much so that Nintendo President Satoru Iwata sat down with Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono to discuss the title's origins and how it takes advantage of the 3DS's features. Considering the machine's power and 3D screen...
Fire it up
It's only a matter of weeks before young Chibiterasu graces DS consoles everywhere in Okamiden, with Nintendo and Capcom combining to stoke up the excitement by releasing a new demo on the Nintendo Channel. Released earlier this week in North America and Europe, the demo takes you through a short sample of the gameplay on offer in the...
Roll the reels
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition isn't just about the 35 characters, online multiplayer and touchscreen controls – its StreetPass figurine battle mode is a potential ace up the sleeves of its gi, and Japanese site Andriasang recently nabbed more details on the violent statues. Playing the game in any mode will accumulate Figure...
Looks pretty faithful to past mercenary instalments
Capcom currently has two Resident Evil titles in development for the 3DS, and with one nearing completion sooner than the other, it's time to see what the trailer for Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D has in store for us. Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D is a handheld re-mastered collection of stages...
The franchise's first 3DS outing is familiar territory for fans
Of the two games in the horror series slated for 3DS, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is at first blush the least interesting. Where Resident Evil: Revelations looks to be taking the atmosphere back to the series’ spooky roots, Mercenaries is a complete embracement of the...
You have to go back a long time to find the last time a Street Fighter title appeared on a Nintendo console – Street Fighter Alpha 3 on the GameBoy Advance in 2002, in fact. Now Capcom is once again giving Nintendo fans a portable port of its famous fighter with Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. We went toe-to-toe with the title...
"Lag-free" online promised
Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated 3DS titles, making use of many of the machine's new features, including its Internet capabilities. Capcom is promising a lag-free and fully-developed online experience for the title, as detailed at AndriaSang. Taking the Arcade Request feature from its big console brethren, even if you're..
Wait and see
Monster Hunter's spiritual home is on the PSP, where its many incarnations have sold countless millions in Japan, and far fewer copies elsewhere in the world. Last year saw its first appearance on a Nintendo console with the formidable Monster Hunter 3 (~Tri), a critical success, and since the revelation of the 3DS fans of the series have been insisting Capcom bring the series to..
Update: Now live in Europe
Not content with offering a free Flash demo of upcoming supernatural puzzler Ghost Trick, Capcom is now giving DS owners in North America a chance to try out the title with a downloadable demo. To get your stylus on the new demo, fire up your Wii and head over to the Nintendo Channel, and be sure to let us know what you make of it. Today, Capcom is excited to let you..
Susano, Kushi, Issun and more
If you've played Okami you're probably already familiar with many of the characters in Capcom's upcoming DS spin-off Okamiden, but here's a few videos to remind you and fill in any gaps just in case. Okamiden reaches North America on March 15th, with a European release date to follow on March 18th. Kushi video Susano...
Worried about infection? Get your shots here
Capcom sure is good to us, no? With the upcoming 3DS we're not getting one, but two Resident Evil games, and initial details are now ready to be shared with regards to the more action-orientated Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. The game is a packaged instalment of The Mercenaries, a mode that was first included in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis on the..
Oh, can you smell the fear?
The E3 announcement trailer of Resident Evil: Revelations had gamers scratching their heads over the identity of the mysterious man held captive by protagonists Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, among other unanswered questions. It's a good thing that Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has had a chat with some of the...
One VS game only, please
It's a pretty one-sided fight, but even so Tatsunoko vs. Capcom is by far the Wii's greatest fighting game. The main hope for competition came from Capcom's upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which regrettably is not heading to Wii. Why? Let Capcom's Christian Svensson explain all. Why isn't MvC3 coming to the Wii? Svensson: The...
Who did the killing?
Ghost Trick isn't far away now, so if your excitement is reaching supernatural heights you might want to check out this free Flash demo from Capcom that will help ease you into the game's unique universe. With plenty of cheeky dialogue and some moderately mind-bending puzzles it's well worth a play even if you're not...
Keeping the download service strong
As revealed at Comic-Con, New York this year, Capcom is planning on bringing some previously Japan-only Virtual Console titles to the West and, if all goes well, we will be tucking into some retro classics this Winter. Currently, there are six titles scheduled for release in North America and Europe, and from the most recent press release, here are some summaries..
US on March 15th, EU on March 18th
Capcom's wolf goddess 'em up Okamiden has just received a confirmed European release date of March 18th 2011, as well as final – and very oriental – box art. Capcom has also announced a new competition on the official Okami Facebook page, inviting entrants to draw their own "goblin face" to win a 3DS, copy of the game, plush Chibiterasu toys and much..
Phantom detectives to start their investigations from 14th January
Nintendo has confirmed that it has signed a distribution deal with Capcom for its upcoming European release of Ghost Trick Phantom Detective on the DS. It's not the first time Nintendo has stepped in to help out a third-party title; the most recent collaboration between the two was...
Such lovely animation
You know when Level 5 is involved you're going to get some high quality animation, but this animated trailer for the upcoming Professor Layton & Phoenix Wright crossover for 3DS is possibly the studio's best work yet. Why? Because it features more top hats, finger-pointing and Objection!-shouting than anything we've ever...
Dream match never ends! And so on
Get ready to pit your wits against two of the smartest characters ever to grace a Nintendo handheld: Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton are set to match up on 3DS. Officially called Professor VS Gyakuten Saiban, at the moment very little else is known, but it'll apparently be a combination of crime mystery and...
Like a programmable pad, but flatter
Hardened Street Fighter II veterans may remember the days of programmable pads and the arguments that arose from their use in even the most casual of competitions. Essentially these pads let you "record" button inputs, making it easier to perform complex moves with a tap of a single button. Upcoming 3DS scrapper Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition will..
Capcom reveals what this "project" entails
When Capcom announced that they were working on a Mega Man Legends 3 project for 3DS, we took this to mean that the name of the upcoming game had yet to be decided. It's now been revealed that the word means much more; as Capcom's website explains, "'Project' is in the title for a reason." As explained at the recent New York City Comic Con by..
Finally some more arcade classics
It took a while, but Capcom has finally revealed that, yes, it is also planning to release a bunch of its arcade titles on the Virtual Console outside Japan. We already discovered some of the titles a while ago, but it's now added one more game to the list. Listed on a small poster in Capcom's booth at the Comic-Con in New York are a total of six titles it plans to..
Missing: legendary god in wolf form. Reward: toys.
Anyone in the New York area who fancies a bit of a treasure hunt may want to keep their eyes peeled for this poster of a missing Chibiterasu, star of Capcom's Okamiden, for the chance to win a plush keyring of the lupine goddess. The first three people to find the poster, take a photo of themselves next to it and share it via the official Okami..
DS sequel lags behind PS2 and Wii versions in day one sales
We're absolute suckers for cute animals here at Nintendo Life so the high expectations we hold for Capcom's DS title Okamiden are entirely understandable - it's just a shame that Japan doesn't seem to feel the same way. First-day sales figures for the Okami sequel suggest that only 10,000...
Little bit of gameplay too
Fighting fans will be spoilt for choice on 3DS: the trailer for Dead or Alive: Dimensions looked pretty sharp, but this trailer for Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition could sneak a first round victory. As well as showing the super-smooth fighting action, it also shows off two modes that make use of the
Game to use as-yet unannounced 3DS features
A portable, fully-equipped, 3D-enabled conversion of Super Street Fighter IV sounded too good to be true just six months ago, but here we are in the knowledge that Capcom is bringing Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition to the 3DS with all 35 characters intact. Will it be adding more to the mix? Producer Yoshinori Ono is reluctant to confirm or deny..
Familiar characters brush with new skills
Capcom is making a big noise about Okamiden, its DS-bound sequel to well-regarded escapade Okami, and with good reason. These new screenshots and fresh trailer from the Tokyo Game Show show the game looks set to maintain the quality level set by the original. Familiar characters Susano, Kushi and more return...
More gameplay footage from Capcom's puzzle game
The Tokyo Game Show has landed and everyone has a lot to show off. Capcom is continuing its steady release of episodic gameplay trailers for the upcoming mystery adventure game, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, and we can tell you that something strange is happening at the park. The game fuses logic puzzles with humour and if the presentation looks..
Edgeworth returns, of course
It was only a few days ago that Famitsu revealed the first details of Ace Attorney Investigations 2, then the first screenshots followed a short while later, and now we have the first trailer for the game. With this video being produced for Tokyo Game Show it won't surprise you it's all in Japanese, but it still shows off a little of what you can expect in the upcoming..
The first title to use portable version of Capcom's game engine
When it was revealed that what we saw in the Resident Evil: Revelations trailer at E3 was rendered in real-time, people had a hard time swallowing that nugget of information. Although Nintendo is tight-lipped about the technical specs of the wonder-machine, Capcom has recently touched upon what the 3D system is really capable of. A..
Miles Edgeworth returns!
The Ace Attorney series has a proud and well-regarded heritage on DS – less so on WiiWare – with this year's Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth another excellent entry in the series. Now Japanese über-mag Famitsu has outed a second instalment in the Investigations series and Edgeworth looks set to feature again. Although the initial scan is blurrier than a..
$9.99 to download, price in Zennies uncertain
Monster Hunter 3 (~Tri) is still receiving a lot of love online and offline, but many hardcore hunters long for a way to take a piece of their favourite series on the go without having to bother with UMDs and the like. Now fearless hunters can accompany even their most mundane daily ritual with the...
Kazuhiko Abe gets ready for new big-boss status
Earlier today, Capcom announced the newly-appointed company CEO and President of CE Europe & Capcom U.S.A. to be Kazuhiko Abe, whose managerial responsibilities will extend to cover the overall business operations in North American and European offices. Overseeing activities on both sides of the Atlantic is hoped to promote efficiency in..
Two control methods promised too
It's been a long time since a Nintendo console received a Street Fighter game – not counting Virtual Console, that is – so the announcement at E3 that Capcom was powering-up its Super Street Fighter IV meter for a Level 3 Super Combo attack on 3DS was music to our ears. Still, there were nagging doubts that the game would suffer compared to its big console..
Puzzles, combat and dialogue all in one place
Capcom's Okamiden is shaping up to be one of the DS's biggest titles of 2011, as these new screenshots and gameplay video from Gamescom in Cologne show. Taking in more of the paint-and-brush gameplay from its predecessor Okami, the extra precision offered by the DS stylus opens up new opportunities for...
Detecting new phantoms inbound
We had a short but enjoyably bizarre hands-on session with Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective a month ago, and the curious DS puzzler continues to take shape under the direction of Phoenix Wright mastermind Shu Takumi. With Gamescom currently tearing up Cologne, Capcom has released a new trailer for Ghost Trick to show off more of the ghostly gameplay players can expect..
Fair to middling
Capcom's Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure is a much-loved and highly regarded Wii title, having sat inside Metacritic's top 20 Wii games since its release nearly three years ago. Making the most of the Wii Remote, each puzzle required you to move it in a different way, but sadly the limitations of the Remote itself held...
Would love to see a 3DS Phantom Detective
Recently, PlanetDS.de published an interview with Shu Takumi, a creative director at Capcom who's working on Ghost Trick and whose past projects include the first four Phoenix Wright titles. In it, he discusses his excitement with Phantom Detective: I swear none of you have ever seen anything like it...
Come on, we like Ghouls 'N Ghosts too...
Capcom announced on Friday that it plans to begin expanding Japan's catalogue of Virtual Console Arcade titles this summer with some of its own. They'll start with SonSon, a 1984 sidescroller loosely based on the Chinese fable Journey to the West. If you enjoy playing classic games on your Wii, it seems that Japan's your ideal location. Publishers have..
From the producer of Devil May Cry 4
16th Century Japan is remembered mostly for its poetry and samurais; we think we all know which of those two we'd rather see in our video games (unless you wear a beret), and Capcom knows it too. Capcom has announced that Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes for the Wii will be launching on October 15 in Europe and Australia. From Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the producer of..
Rising Soul up for two weeks
Monster Hunter Tri's event quests keep on bringing the new content, with the new quest Sea Power letting qualified hunters grab themselves the new Rising Soul sword. Fancy your chances? Here's the lowdown straight from Capcom: The new event quest, Sea Power, throws you into a battle versus two Lagiacrus. This quest is definitely made for seasoned hunters. First, you'll..
Blue Bomber backgrounds in black and white
Although you might think Mega Man 10's retro graphical style is easy, a Japanese site has published some concept art showing the amount of work that went into bringing the game to life. From futuristic transport systems to buildings shaped like grenades, the art shows the detail required to create something even as seemingly simple as Mega Man 10. Check..
Don't hold your breath, though
During E3, Joystiq had a few words with Marvel vs Capcom 3 producer Ryota Niitsuma about the upcoming game and the Vs. series in general, leading to a few probes about why the Wii was left out. According to Niitsuma, Capcom just wants to spread the fight love. Well, [after Tatsunoko vs. Capcom], we felt now it's time to do a Vs game on Xbox 360 and PS3. It was just a..
...over a mysterious prisoner?
Last week's E3 event showed us a glimpse of Capcom's latest instalment in the Resident Evil franchise built exclusively for the 3DS.
