TGS 2010: Capcom Announcements & Reactions

posted in: Game News | 0

It looks like every publisher wishes to tick off its fans at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Capcom is no different, but they’re irking people via proxy; not a single one of these games are being developed internally.

I’ll let you guess which game is ticking people off.

Developer: Ninja Theory
Platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

My Reaction

The character design reminds me of Twilight and not the stylish wise cracking cheesy show off that was Dante of old. That saddens me. The trailer also didn’t portray the action in the same quick and stylish fashion of old either. It’s also being developed by Ninja Theory who has yet to impress within the character action genre.

Capcom’s GamesCom 2010 Gallery

posted in: Game News | 0

Three galleries for three Capcom games. I was going to post some Ghost Trick and Okamiden galleries, but DS games simply don’t represent well in these kinds of stills.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2

I’m cautiously optimistic about this sequel. I like the colorful look of it, but it’s missing something. I don’t know what it is yet, but it’s missing something. It certainly isn’t the ability to jump, because it’s included in the sequel.

E3 2009: Capcom’s E3 Line Up Is a Mix of Old & New

posted in: Game News | 0

Capcom’s very own Mr. Kramer, posted his company’s E3 line up for this year. It’s got some retreads like Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando (by the time E3 arrives), but it’s got a healthy dose of new spectacles such as Lost Planet 2 and Dead Rising 2!

Here’s the list:

  • Dark Void (PS3, 360, PC)
  • Lost Planet 2 (currently 360, PC)
  • Dead Rising 2 (will be “behind closed doors”)
  • Spyborgs (Wii)
  • Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles (Wii)
  • Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (PSP)
  • Marvel vs Capcom 2 (digital release for PS3, 360)
  • Fate Unlimited Codes (digital PSP release)
  • Street Fighter IV (PC)
  • Bionic Commando (PC)
  • Mega Man Star Force 3 (DS)
  • Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil (Wii)
  • Capcom Mystery Game #1 (playable in booth!)
  • Capcom Mystery Game #2 (announced at a press conference!)

What could those mystery games be? Marvel vs Capcom 3? A nice dream. Capcom vs SNK 3?! Strider remake? I do wonder…

P.S – Marvel vs Capcom 2 will be hitting PSN/XBLA on June 29, 2009.
