Capcom Does it Again

Capcom is at it again. They just can’t seem to leave the Blue Bomber alone. First the cancellation of Legends 3, then the horrific decision to make him a big joke in Street Fighter X Tekken, then the laziness of using a fan’s game to try and bring fans back into the fold, and now this.

And you thought THIS was bad.

As you might have heard at PAX EAST, Capcom said they didn’t want to announce anything about the new Mega Man title in the works just yet. Well that alone tells us there is a game in the works. What is the game about? Well we were lucky enough to sit down and talk to a member of the Capcom Team in charge of this new title. He wanted to remain anonymous and we didn’t have a lot of time with him. The big announcement is the game will be titled Mega Mare: Friendship is Mega.

If you have not caught on, this will be a sort of My Little Pony and Mega Man mash up. The reason behind this as the Capcom member said is because gamers love cross overs. Mega Man VS Street Fighter is a perfect example.

“We took two things that everyone loves, and put them together. That will truly make the fans happy and will be a great way to celebrate the 25th anniversary.”

While we weren’t given anything visual to go by, he did say that Wayforward would be in charge of the game design.

“We saw what they did with Duck Tales and were very impressed. Their other games are great as well. It was an easy choice.”

He also let slip that Tara Strong would be doing the voice of “Mega Mare.” If you are interested in this train wreck of a game, players can expect to play it when it launches next year on April 1st.

Well, I guess its not THAT bad.

Capcom just announced a new gameplay mode for their upcoming port of the 3DS title, Resident Evil Revelations. Infernal Mode not only offers more enemies or stronger enemies like a lot of games with changing difficulties do, but it also takes the formula a step further and remixes things like item placement and enemy placement. Infernal mode actually promises to be so hard, there is a warning on the screen to first time players that you can see in the video below.

 

Resident Evil Revelations hits Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on May 24th, 2013.

Before you start groaning, rolling your eyes, and open up Paint to paste together a tollface comic to make fun of Capcom, you should read all the details of this patch.

In April, a month after Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is released, a patch is rolling out. This patch isn’t to fix anything that’s broken, but rather to add new features! This patch will enable monster hunters from. North America and Europe to play together online. It will also add off-TV functionality, a feature that will be missing from the game when it ships.

Capcom also announced it will be supporting the game for several months with free DLC quests, the first of which will be available on the launch day of March 19th.

If you’ve been visiting our site for any length of time, you know that I was pretty much obsessed with Monster Hunter 3 for Wii. After putting well over 100 hours into the game, my poor decrepit launch day Wii gave up the ghost and I didn’t have the heart to start fresh.

Since then, I (along with other North American Monster Hunter fans) have been chomping at the bit for a new game. Finally, that wait is over!  Capcom announced that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be hitting North American stores for the Wii U and 3DS March 19th. The tons of new monsters, new areas to explore, new weapons and armor were enough to get my adrenaline flowing, but add to the fact you can transfer your save file back and forth between the Wii U and the 3DS and I am in LOVE with this game over a month before its release date. Despite the fact that we’ve just recently posted some details,  we really just wanted an excuse to post some cool screens and a video.

Check out a couple of my favorite screen shots from the game and a video below! Also, check back with us later this month when we will have our impressions of the demos up!

This may be old news for a lot of you, but late is better than never, right? Capcom recently announced some more details concerning it’s upcoming action adventure game, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate  for Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. This game is one of the first for Wii U that will allow cross platform play between its 3DS counterpart; meaning you can transfer your save file from the Wii U to the 3DS and play your same game on the go, and vice versa.

If you aren’t familiar with the Monster Hunter series, it pits players against fearsome monsters and gives them the opportunity to upgrade their equipment with materials obtained from these monsters. A demo hits the eShop for both systems on February 21st. The game’s retail release date follows soon after on March 22nd.

If you are as excited about this game as we are, you will probably enjoy looking at the pile of screenshots below.

It’s time again for our editors to square off in a RoboDebate! This one is a bit different. Rather than praise one game over another or a series over another we’re taking a look at the more negative side of things. A lot of video game companies thrive on their mascots and franchises but are all franchises treated equally? Today Jessie and David duke it out over who handles their characters worse, SEGA or Capcom? Continue reading »

Over the weekend at San Diego Comic Con, land of wild and crazy new announcements, Capcom had one that had me both scratching my head and buying yet another ticket for the hype train. Cult classic manga fighter JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is getting the full Capcom HD release treatment, complete with HD scaling, leaderboards, and all that other fun stuff you can expect from a Capcom fighter re-release. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD Ver. hits the PlayStation Network on August 21st for $19.99 and the Xbox Live Arcade the following day for 1600 points.
