Deep Down isn't the only PS4 game Capcom is working on

Capcom producer Jun Takeuchi (Resident Evil 5, Lost Planet) told Famitsu in an interview (via Game Johou) that the game he is currently producing is for the PlayStation 4 (and not Deep Down, which we've been assured will...

You got Madoka Magica in my Monster Hunter Frontier G

Apparently Capcom is going forward with yet another crossover with the Monster Hunter series -- Madoka Magica, an anime that started off as a TV show, then became a manga and spawned three movies. Weapons like Mado...

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings the mystery back to survival horror photo
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 brings the mystery back to survival horror
by Alessandro Fillari

There's certainly been intrigue surrounding Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Since its existence was leaked a few months back and several cryptic images of a derelict prison made the rounds, there has been speculation about what to expect from this installment. And, with the return of characters from other titles, there is evidently a larger focus on linking things back to the series' past.

Its predecessor, Resident Evil: Revelations, felt very much like a back-to-basics approach to the series, which earned a lot favor from fans. With the upcoming sequel, more characters from the past are brought back to the forefront and are drawn into a greater conspiracy. Obviously, this isn't entirely new for the franchise. However, with the greater focus on mystery in Revelations 2 and how Capcom plans to release the game in episodes, it could give the series a much needed change of pace. After Brett's hands-on time with the sequel back at Tokyo Game Show, he was left unsure of what to expect from the game. And, judging from my own time with it last month, that might be for the best.

This is one title you might want to go into blind.

Capcom is haunting arcades with Luigi's Mansion

Luigi's bringing his ghost-bustin' vaccum-totin' ways to a new scene that's full of noise and flashing lights, and it's all thanks to Capcom. The GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion is being refitted for arcades, as indicated by...

Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster in HD photo
Resident Evil was a difficult game to remaster in HD
by Alessandro Fillari

With the rise of high-definition re-releases, many fans have likely made a wish list of titles they hope will eventually get the HD treatment. Whether they be classics from the '90s or 2000s, we're seeing a variety of games find new life in today's market. Unfortunately, not every title can make that transition to modern consoles, be it for technical or design reasons.

Thankfully, Resident Evil is an exception. During a special hands-on session with the game, I experienced what it was like to return the mansion in full HD, and even got to speak with members of Capcom staff to learn about the challenges they faced with Remastered.

They certainly had their work cut out for them.

Dr. Capcom's monster: Resident Evil 5 blows photo
Dr. Capcom's monster: Resident Evil 5 blows
by Steven Hansen

Halloween approaches and my evenings have been filled with practical effects and Italian prog rock as The Thing, Inferno, Suspiria et al. grace my TV. Dale North recently wrote on why survival horror might just be old hat, ahead of the decidedly old-school Evil Within and Alien: Isolation.  

One of the true contemporary horrors of the genre, though, is Resident Evil 5.

Not because it is a scary game to play but because it is a scary game to exist. And to have done remarkably well for Capcom, pushing the company further towards making unoriginal dreck. Complete global saturation, indeed. I wrote a few years ago over at Electric Phantasmand have re-edited below to suck less—on Capcom's most important disappointment, the uncanny taxidermy of Resident Evil 4 dressed up in silly hats and big muscles, walking around like that creepy robot dog thing. It is a horrifying abomination and a cautionary tale worth cautioning again, if anyone's listening (Dead Space wasn't, as it took the sequel's missteps further for the third).  

Resident Evil 5 blows.

Demon's Crest, one of the most rare SNES games to date, is coming to the Virtual Console

One of my biggest regrets is not buying Demon's Crest as a kid. I rented it at least twice and beat it multiple times -- as soon as I was done with one playthrough, I started the next one. It's easily one of the best pla...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate sells over two million in its first week

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate went on sale on October 11th in Japan, and already it has mustered up over two million in sales. The original base game for reference sold roughly 4.1 million units for comparison. Now that it sold over two million, the series doesn't have to be canceled, due to Capcom's new "AAA logic." Just sell yourself to Nintendo already. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom]

Okay, this Mega Man armor for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is cute

Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate gets an amazing Samus costume
by Chris Carter

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is still coming in 2015 outside of Japan, and there's yet another Nintendo/Capcom crossover coming. A Samus costume is making an appearance, and yes, it will be coming to the western version of the game.

At this point I think Nintendo and Capcom are friends enough where the latter can just, give over the rights to Mega Man games to the former? I mean, think about it. Capcom can pull a George Lucas and retain merchandise rights. Nintendo can make great games and Capcom can still collect -- do a five to ten year deal and see where it goes.

Enh, enh?
