Capcom Reportedly Developing New Ace Attorney For The Nintendo Switch

Tyler Lee November 14, 2017

If you’ve owned a Nintendo DS handheld console, there’s a good chance that you’re familiar with the Ace Attorney series, which has also found its way onto other platforms. Now the good news is that if you’ve enjoyed the series, you’ll be pleased to learn that Capcom will be bringing Ace Attorney onto the Switch.

This is according to a recent interview with Japanese publication Jiji (via Takashi Mochizuki) in which Capcom’s COO confirmed the company’s plans. According to Kotaku UK, they have learnt that not only is Capcom developing a new title for the Switch, but there are plans for at least three Ace Attorney games.

Two of which are compilations of the older titles and are planned for a release in the first half of the 2018-2019 financial year (which takes place between April 2018 to October 2018). So far Capcom has only confirmed that they’ll be bringing Ace Attorney to the Switch, but Kotaku UK’s report has suggested that the compilations are meant to lead up to something bigger, which like we said above will be for a new title for the Switch.

Details are scarce but it is said to be already in the works where they are aiming for a late 2018 release on the Switch as well as mobile. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.

Final Street Fighter 5 Season 2 DLC Character Unveiled

Adnan Farooqui October 15, 2017

Capcom has unveiled the final Street Fighter 5 season 2 DLC character at the 2017 South East Asia Major tournament. Zeku the “ever-changing ninja” is back and will now be available as a playable character in Street Fighter 5. Those who have played Street Fighter Alpha 2 will remember this particular character, Zeku used to be Guy’s teacher who taught him Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu.

Guy ended up succeeding Zeku as the 39th master of Bushinryu and Zeku wasn’t heard from since. He disappeared shortly after that happened. Zeku has returned in Street Fighter 5. He’s looking to start his own ninja group with new fighters. Zeku also wants to find a new fighting style.

Capcom has posted the character reveal trailer for Zeku on YouTube. Zeku seems to have a close-quarters fighting style as well as the ability to switch between his old and his new self. Both forms will have three different costumes.

Characters that have previously been released in Season 2 include Akuma, Kolin, Ed, Abigail, and Menat. Street Fighter 5 players can purchase Zeku separately for $6. It’s included in the season pass for those who have already picked one up for $30. Zeku will be available for purchase on October 24th.

Capcom is yet to confirm when it’s going to release the third season of DLC for Street Fighter 5.

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Spotted On Retailer’s Website

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

If there is one thing about the Street Fighter series that we’ve noticed is that Capcom seems to love creating many versions of a particular release, which can be admittedly confusing for fans or those new to the series. However it seems that this won’t be changing anytime soon because Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition has been spotted.

In a listing on ShopTo’s website (via Eurogamer), the retailer has suggested that Capcom might have an “Arcade Edition” of Street Fighter 5 in the works that is set for a release on the 16th of January, 2018. One could argue that ShopTo is simply speculating, but the date does seem to be awfully specific. The listing has since been removed which suggests that either it was made in error, or ShopTo shared something that they shouldn’t have prematurely.

At the moment it is unclear as to what the Arcade Edition entails, but it has been speculated that it will be a game-of-the-year kind of release where the game along with all of its DLCs will be released in a single bundle, as well as potential new features like an arcade mode, making it easier for gamers who don’t own the game to get right into the thick of things.

It is expected that Capcom could announce the title at the Tokyo Game Show, so do check back with us later to see if there are any additional details to be had.

Monster Hunter: World Set For January 26, 2018 Release

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

Announced at E3 2017 a few months ago, Capcom has recently confirmed that the upcoming Monster Hunter: World will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles on the 26th of January 2018. Just like the previous announcement, the release on consoles will be taking place first and the release for the PC will be at a later date which has yet to be specified.

In addition to the release date, Capcom also confirmed that there will be a Digital Deluxe Edition and a physical Collector’s Edition for the North American market. The Digital Deluxe Edition is priced at $70 and “includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter.”

As for the Collector’s Edition, it will retail for $150 and “includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code all bundled in a custom collector’s box.”

As for Japan, it seems that Sony will also be releasing a Monster Hunter: World-themed PS4 Pro model. Until then gamers can also check out the new trailer that was released for the game in the video above.

Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 For Switch Launching November 30

Tyler Lee September 5, 2017

Early last month Capcom had confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch (this was after the company had earlier this year stated that there were no plans to bring Resident Evil onto the Switch). However they did not mention when the games would be released.

According to a report from Famitsu (via Nintendo Everything), it seems that the Japanese dates for both games has been revealed to be the 30th of November. Unfortunately there was no mention of when the games would be released stateside or for other markets around the world, and given that sometimes games in Japan do get an earlier release than the west, it’s hard to say, although here’s hoping that the 30th of November is a worldwide release as well, otherwise fans will just have to wait.

It should be noted that Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 have been released for both the PS4 and Xbox One towards the end of August, so Switch gamers actually have to wait quite a bit before it is their turn. These aren’t exactly new Resident Evil titles per se, but perhaps Capcom is testing the waters with the Switch release to see if future Resident Evil titles could eventually find their way onto the console.

New Resident Evil 7 ‘End Of Zoe’ DLC Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui September 5, 2017

Capcom today announced the launch of Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition as well as a new DLC for the game titled “End of Zoe.” The Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in the near future. This version includes the original Resident Evil 7 biohazard game as well as both of the previously released DLCs and the new DLC too.

Those who own the standard Resident Evil 7 biohazard game can now purchase all three DLC updates separately starting today. Owners of any version of the original game can also download the free “Not a Hero” DLC from today.

Players will find out more information about the fate of Jack and Marguerite’s daughter after the events of the game in the End of Zoe DLC. The free Not a Hero DLC features Chris Redfield as he tries to track down an elusive foe.

It explores events that take place directly after Ethan Winters’ fight to escape the Baker family. It offers an entirely different take on survival horror.

Both the End of Zoe and Not a Hearo DLCs have support for the PlayStation VR to provide gamers who own Sony’s VR headset with a more immersive experience.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition, “End of Zoe,” and “Not a Hero” DLCs will be released on December 12th.

Capcom Re-Releases Street Fighter II Cartridge For The SNES

Tyler Lee August 31, 2017

Consoles these days rely on digital downloads or discs, versus back in the day where cartridges were the more (and only) way of playing games. In fact for a while this translated to handheld consoles too, like the Game Boy and Game Gear, so it is rather surprising to see that Capcom is releasing a cartridge game in this day and age.

The company has recently teamed up with the folks at iam8bit and have re-released Street Fighter II for the SNES in cartridge form. According to the description, “Featuring one of two colored cartridges, each housing the original game code and fully playable on NTSC consoles – but that’s just the beginning!”

“The “Legacy Cartridge Collection” embodies retro-inspired luxury, amplifying the core SNES box design with a glistening foil sheen, delicately embossed texture, chic spot varnish and an innovative tri-fold cover that opens to reveal bonus vintage art. Inside, we’re keeping it old-school by restoring the contents of the original instruction booklet, complete with a new archival cover print + secret pack-ins (to be revealed when you crack that shrink-wrap seal).”

Now whether or not you still have an SNES to enjoy the cartridge with is a different story, but if you enjoy collecting special editions of video games, then we guess this is a good place to start. However do note that this Street Fighter II release is limited and there will only be 5,500 units worldwide and will be priced at $100 each. You can pre-order the game via iam8bit’s website where it is expected to be released this November.

Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite Story Trailer Released

Tyler Lee August 18, 2017

It has been a while since we last saw a Marvel VS Capcom mashup, which is why it is understandable that gamers are pretty excited by the next installment, which is Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite. Capcom is certainly doing their best to hype the launch and have since launched a new story trailer for the game.

The trailer features a bunch of new playable characters in the game which includes Jedah, Dormammu, Firebrand and Ghost Rider, which was announced not too long ago. However it seems that based on the comments on the trailer, quite a few people don’t seem to be too thrilled with the graphics of the game, in which the consensus seems to be that it feels a bit outdated and meant more for older platforms like the Gamecube or the Xbox 360.

However we suppose at the end of the day it’s the gameplay that matters, which gamers will be able to find out for themselves come 19th of September when the game is finally released. According to Capcom, there will be a total of 30 characters available at the launch of the game, but they’re not stopping there as there will be additional characters that will be revealed in the future post-launch.

Monster Hunter XX Switch Demo Is Now Available

Tyler Lee August 11, 2017

Last week we reported that Capcom would be releasing the demo for Monster Hunter XX on the Nintendo Switch this week, and sure enough it looks like the demo is now available for gamers who are interested in checking it out, although we should point out that the game is currently exclusive to Japan.

However the good news is that finally after all these years, Nintendo has decided to create a region-free system with the Nintendo Switch. What this means is that gamers can create eShop accounts for any country in the world and purchase games that might be exclusive to a certain country, which is usually the case with smaller indie titles, or in this case Capcom’s Monster Hunter XX.

The game was announced back in May much to the excitement of gamers, but a follow-up report from Capcom revealed that the company has no plans of releasing it to other parts of the world for now. Given the mass fanbase of the Monster Hunter franchise, we’re not sure why Capcom is not bothering to localize it, unless they have another title planned for the Switch that is for the Western market.

Either way like we said, the Switch is region-free and you can check out some tutorials online on how to create a new eShop account for a different country if you absolutely have to get your hands on it.

Ghost Rider Will Be Added To Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite’s Roster

Tyler Lee August 9, 2017

If you loved the mashups between Marvel and Capcom in their arcade fighting game, chances are you are probably anticipating the release of Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite. Now if you were pretty pleased with the lineup so far, then you might be interested to learn that Capcom has recently confirmed that Ghost Rider will be the latest addition to the game’s roster.

Prior to Ghost Rider being added to the game, the latest character was none other than fan-favorite Spider-Man, which was actually pretty relevant given how well-received the Spider-Man: Homecoming movie was. Interestingly enough the addition of Ghost Rider was not part of the alleged roster leak from a few months back, so we’re not sure if the leak was fake or if it was simply incomplete.

We’re not sure how Ghost Rider will play since there does not appear to be an official gameplay trailer for the character just yet, although Capcom notes that the character will be playable at Gamescom which will be taking place on the 22nd of August, so if you happen to be attending the event then it’s something that you can check out for yourself.

Marvel VS Capcom: Infinite is currently slated for a release on the 19th of September where it will be available on the PC, PS4, and the Xbox One.
