    Famous catchphrase kept him out.

    Attorney Phoenix Wright, legendary Capcom character prone to much waving and dramatic poses, was originally considered for Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom.

  • News What Capcom games do you want to see on the Virtual Console?

    Let the good people at Capcom know what you want.

    Now that the rate of Virtual Console releases has slowed from a flood to a trickle, it is understandable that many VC gamers have given up hope of playing their favourite Capcom games in the comfort of their living room on the Wii with a Classic Controller.

  • News Monster Hunter 3 Gets Seriously... Cute?!

    Claymation shows softer side of lethal Wyverns

    It may be one of the most anticipated hardcore releases for Wii this year, but Monster Hunter 3 (Tri~) isn't afraid to show its sillier side, with the latest video from Capcom introducing would-be Hunters to their new best friend - Chacha (yes, really.) The short claymation video shows the little acorn-headed Chacha exploring the world and hunting down..

  • News 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..

  • News 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.

  • News 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.

  • News 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..

  • News 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...

  • News Mega Man 9 Stop-Motion Video is Great Beyond Words

    Ok, so this isn't strictly WiiWare news but we just had to share this totally radical video with you - and it must be worth watching because we haven't used the expression 'radical' since we were 12.

    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.

  • News Mega Man 9 - Flicker Included!

    Capcom seems to be taking this trip down memory lane with their upcoming WiiWare Mega Man 9 game quite seriously. Not only will the game have 8-bit sound effects and visuals, but now Capcom is saying that this new Mega Man title will also have the same flicker that plagued many a game during the 8-bit era. About the only thing left for Capcom to do would be to require the player to jiggle the Wii Remote much the same way NES carts had to be jiggled to get the games to boot up on the loose contacts inside the NES cartridge slot. (We hope they don't take it quite that far, however)
