Does this $29,000 gold Monster Hunter statue have a lil dick?

Capcom is selling a $29,000, solid gold Otomo Airou statue to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Monster Hunter.  Does it have a dick, though? We at the Destructoid virtual office thought it might. "does it...does ...

August will have one Mega Man game release per week on Wii U

Each week in the Nintendo Download series, I can highlight whatever I want in the title -- and you can bet that I'll continue to pick Mega Man games this month! According to Capcom Unity, every week in August will see a ...

Capcom made money this quarter without a big, new release

More quarter 1 for the fiscal year 2015 fun times. Capcom. Haven't heard much out of them while we wait for Monster Hunter. Their E3 line-up was slim. I played the 3DS port of the Ace Attorney trilogy. So, Capcom? Its nu...

This trailer for Breath of Fire 6 is as pretty as I expected, but that's about it

This animated trailer is absolutely stunning, but it does not do much to enthuse me for Breath of Fire 6. Breath of Fire 6, subtitled Guardians of the White Dragon, is set to be published as an online, web-based role-pl...

Pay too much for too many new Ultra Street Fighter IV costumes this summer

Capcom wants to lower development cycles to 1.5 years for major sequels

Nobody likes waiting for the follow-ups to their favorite games. However, if you're a Capcom fan, that wait will be more tolerable than most others, as the Japanese publisher aims for significantly quick turn-around between i...

We've already known that Monster Hunter 4 has a very neat looking set of Link armor and weapon sets, but we haven't seen a whole lot of footage on them -- until this week that is, when Capcom unleashed a new trailer into the world.

Ok that's great -- but all people are thinking in the West is "are we getting it?!" Now we can finally answer that question with a resounding "yes," compliments of Capcom Unity. Yes -- the West will be getting Link's armor and weapon sets.

Confirmed: Link's weapons and armor are in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom Unity]

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive

I don't think anyone expected the North American weapon contest winner to top the UK's Monster Hunter 4 design (a freaking pig on a club, c'mon!), but it's a pretty cool looking item nonetheless. Yep, the North American...

Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release photo
Nintendo checks in with Capcom, confirms Battle Network VC release
by Chris Carter

Nintendo took a minute (well, 15 actually) to check in with Capcom in a decidedly Mega Man themed Nintendo Minute. Speaking to Brett Elston of Capcom, they chatted a bit about recent Mega Man merch, as well as the newest game to hit the Virtual Console -- Mega Man Battle Network, which has already dropped in Europe and is set to hit the US on July 31.

Man, how cool would it be if Nintendo bought Capcom and gave Mega Man the care he needs? Also, how lucrative would a Nintendo exclusive Monster Hunter franchise be over time if it owned the entire IP? It's a match made in heaven.

Loads of Monster Hunter 4G limited edition items and accessories

As we wait until 2015, Japan is getting Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in October and, with it, a chance to clutter players' living spaces with more kitschy junk.  The limited edition (above) comes with four figurines an...

In this morning's Japanese Nintendo Direct, Capcom revealed that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will hit Japanese 3DS units everywhere on October 11th. Yep, this is the same game we will eventually get overseas come 2015.

As is the case with all Monster Hunter expansions, new weapons, monsters, and areas are in tow. You can get a glimpse of the update in the new video above from Capcom. Considering how many re-releases we've had lately from the series, I'm excited to see a real, new entry.

When's Marvel? Just consult the EVO 2014 schedule

EVO 2014 is this weekend. We had a lovely time covering it last year, though it doesn't look like we'll have a get together watch party this time around. That's okay. There are three different streams to watch home and a...

These Street Fighter II iPhone cases look a lot better than that lame OtterBox

The millions of different cases out there in the wild for iPhones were definitely integral in my decision to make that pricey purchase after my Android phone bit the dust, and every time I see new phone cases I covet I feel l...
