Capcom sent out the following

 

Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed during the Sony PlayStation Showcase at Paris Games Week that a beta for Monster Hunter: World™ will be available exclusively for PlayStation®Plus users starting 9th – 12th December, 2017. In addition, special Horizon Zero Dawn content featuring Aloy’s bow and full armor set plus Palico armor will be available for Monster Hunter: World exclusively on PlayStation®4. To see what the content looks like in-game and to see a brand new area of the game, the Rotten Vale, a new trailer is available to download now from the Capcom press site http://press.capcom.com or can be watched on the official Monster Hunter™ YouTube channel.

Available starting 9th December, players from around the world can experience three fearsome quests as they join up with other hunters online or take on the beasts alone in the exclusive beta for PlayStation Plus  users. Running for three days, hunters participating in the beta can tackle the hungry Great Jagras, a scavenger capable of swallowing other monsters whole, or the fiery and territorial Anjanath, both of which roam the dense and complex eco-system within the Ancient Forest. For those feeling brave enough they can adventure to the desert land of the Wildspire Waste where the armored Barroth can be found lurking in the muddy waters, waiting to unleash its devastating charge attack.

Horizon Zero Dawn’s young machine hunter Aloy comes to life in Monster Hunter: World for PS4 with Aloy’s bow and full armor set as well as Palico armor that can make the player’s Palico look like a machine from Horizon Zero Dawn. The full armor set will make any player character look like Aloy from head to toe, including facial likeness.  After completing the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration event quest, which is planned to be distributed to online players post launch, special materials can be obtained to forge collaboration equipment. By bringing the necessary materials to the in-game facility (Smithy), players will be able to forge the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration equipment.  Details on the exact timing and availability of the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration quest will be revealed soon.

The latest Monster Hunter: World trailer released at Paris Games Week highlights for the first time the terrifying Rotten Vale area of the New World. Littered with the skeletons of deceased monsters, a land of unique and gigantic creatures awaits amongst this bed of bones. The deeper players journey into the inner layers of the Rotten Vale, the tougher the environment gets with a dangerous and toxic mist blanketing the land obscuring the perils that lurk nearby until the very last minute. The Radobaan, a hulking beast that wears the carcasses scattered around the Vale for armor will need hunters to be quick and fast as they take off chunks of its bone armor and avoid its rolling attacks. Hunters can brave the beast alone or with their team of four hunters. With drop in multiplayer, each hunter has their own story to tell – but will they live to tell it?

 

This is quite the interesting addition to Monster Hunter World. Will you be checking this out?

Street Fighter V will finally be getting a much wanted feature.

 

We’re thrilled to announce Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, coming to all our warriors around the world on January 16, 2018! As the name suggests, this edition includes the highly-requested Arcade Mode, but it also includes much much more! If you’ve been spectating on the sidelines or waiting for the right moment to join the fight, you’ll definitely want to check this out. Without further ado, let’s get to what’s inside!

First off, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2 – there’s still one more character that we’ll be announcing very soon. In order to introduce more variety in each match, all characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose before the match begins! It’s time to see what else your main character is capable of. We’ll be rolling out more details in the future.

 

As previously stated, Arcade Mode will be present, but this isn’t your cookie cutter version. Being the #1 requested addition to Street Fighter V, we’re making sure it’ll be an experience rather than just a mode. As it’s our 30th anniversary year, we wanted to add even more to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition! Extra Battle Mode, V-Trigger moves, Gallery, and a UI design overhaul are among the features we can’t wait to show you in the future. There’s a lot of information to share with each of these new additions, so keep an eye out as we approach January.

 

Ready for even better news? As we promised in the past, the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything we’ve mentioned above. We wanted to make sure there’s something to celebrate for both current and new players alike.
Thank you for your feedback and for supporting Street Fighter V throughout the years! We’re listening and are planning to bring you something we’re really proud of and can finally announce. Here’s to many more years to come for Street Fighter V!

 

It is good that the game is finally getting the features like this. Will it help the game turn things around? We will have to see.

I must say I was a little surprised that these games weren’t released as DLC for the first game. With only four games to release instead of six like with the first collection, it seemed to make sense. I was wrong on this one and the more I think about was a very good thing. Three generations of games in one collection is already a great thing.

I feel like I shouldn’t need to discuss the story of a Mega Man game at this point. Doctor Wily attacks using new robots in an attempt to take over the world. Doctor Light sends out Mega Man and his friends to stop the evil Dr. Wily. It’s a tried and true story that has served Mega Man well throughout his adventures. What makes this collection specifically different than the previous is that it is the games that took place in the 16 and 32-bit eras. Yes, nine and ten are from the 7th generation xbox360/PS3 era but they are made in the style of the NES games.

What is important in this instance is the quality of the HD appearance of the blue bomber’s adventures. It is safe to say that the four games included are given the respect they deserve. The first game (Mega Man 7) first appeared on the Super Nintendo and as far as I know has never been released in any other form outside of the Mega Man Collections that appeared on the 6th generation consoles (PS2, GC, Xbox).

Let’s start with the most basic of things. The controls are perfect. In the case of Mega Man 8, they feel way more responsive than the original PlayStation controller. You do have the option to use the analog stick if that is your preference, but with platforming games, I highly recommend using the traditional directional pad.

Mega Man 8 saw Mega Man’s first and only appearance (Not including the X series) on the 32-bit consoles.  There is only one real difference between this version and the previous ones and it is immediately apparent. The 32-bit generation suffered from CD load times. Mega Man 8 was no exception. It is so disorienting to see that there is no load time in this version of the game. Very welcome, but disorienting.

Mega Man 9 and 10 are the first games in the series to include outside developer help to create. It was fortunate that Capcom went to the reliable company Inti Creates who is probably best known for their recent work on Mighty Gunvolt and Blaster Master Zero for 3DS. Both Mega Man 9 and 10 took the franchise back to its 8-bit roots both graphically and audio wise. Both come with a bunch of options plus they include the DLC that you had to purchase separately when they were first released.

Mega Man nine and ten are the jewels of this collection for me for one reason. Both 7 and 8 have been released physically. While they will cost you to find out in the wild they are obtainable. Nine and ten up to this point were only released digitally. I prefer having physical copies of games myself so this collection is a no-brainer. You can buy Mega Man nine and ten as a bundle right now on the PlayStation store for 15 dollars, though the digital editions are only playable on the ps3. Mega Man 8 is also available on ps3 digitally for $5.99. So you can see the value already in purchasing the Legacy Collection. You get the four games for 20 dollars. Even if you get the digital editions they are a great price.

The bonus features to the collection, however, are pretty slim. As with the previous collections, you get the music player to listen to the songs from each game. There are also art galleries for each game. You also get the usual fanfare for these types of HD games. Backgrounds to fill the black bars on the sides of the screen from the old 4:3 aspect ratio and screen filters to give you the pixel effect of old TVs. You can also make the games full widescreen if you wish.

At first glance, those who played the last gen versions of Mega Man 9 and 10 will notice that there is some DLC missing from the games. It turns out Capcom decided to have a little fun with us. You have to unlock the content via a button combination much like in the NES and SNES era.

Enter this sequence at the title screen of both games to unlock the hidden content.

Mega Man 9 and 10 code- Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Down, Up, Up, Down

There are two new features that have not been seen before in any of the previous compilations that are very helpful. One is a checkpoint autosave function. This is a great way to stop the game and pick back up where you left off rather than the old method of beating the area and getting a code to write down. Considering these games can take some time to beat, this is a great feature. This also replaces the save states that the first Legacy collection used. It brings the difficulty back up.

The second feature is also welcome for those who are not the best at the Mega Man franchise. The Mega Man games (particularly the later ones) got quite hard to play through. Mega Man 9 is probably known as one of the hardest. This collection offers an option that doubles your resistance to damage taken within the games. This opens up the game’s playability for not only new players but for those who are more casual and want to play the games. While this does reduce the damage, it does not make the stages themselves any easier. There are still plenty of pits and one-hit kills that will keep you on your toes.

I am not sure if I should complain that there are only four games in this collection rather than the six that came in the first one. Mega Man games are always fun and welcome to play but this felt like a great opportunity to throw on some of the more bizarre Mega Man titles. Mega Man soccer would have been a fun addition to the collection. Even the Game Boy editions of Mega Man. At the very least they could have added Mega Man V from the Game Boy series since it was the only original Mega Man game on the console. I understand the games that are in the collection are the last for the classic series but neither of the games mentioned here will probably ever get an actual re-release so why not have included them. They do use the classic Mega Man after all.

Another small gripe with the collection is when you stretch the image to widescreen. The background stays pretty crisp, but animated characters tend to blur out when in widescreen.

I must admit the bonus material in the game is slim and honestly lacking, especially when you look into the production of each game, but I have to also say that the collection is only twenty dollars. That with the fact that games 9 and 10 have not had a physical release makes this a must-own, at least for me. Even if you look at the prices for the digital games the collection is still worth it. Chances are you aren’t looking at the second collection as your entry point in the series and even if you are it is a great set of games.

My mind races with ideas of what will come next. Maybe we will see a start of the Mega Man X collection. Maybe we will finally see some HD remakes of the long-desired Legends series. Please Capcom, May we have more? Mega Man Legends HD collection perhaps?

Capcom sent out the following

 

 

The much loved and highly acclaimed BAFTA award-winning visual masterpiece Okami HD will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both physically and digitally and as a digital download for Windows PC across North America on December 12, 2017 for MSRP $19.99. Experience a tidal wave of colorful action by downloading the new trailer and assets from the press site here.

The original game, released to critical and consumer acclaim in 2006, was hailed as one of the most beautiful games ever created, and this latest release with its renowned Sumi-e ink art style is now even more breath-taking as the graphics have been updated to take advantage of modern high resolutions. Okami HD will be compatible with Xbox One X and PS4 Pro while featuring stunning 4K graphics on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and supported PC hardware.

In Okami HD players take on the role of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who inhabits the form of a legendary white wolf Shiranui on a quest to defeat Orochi, an eight-headed demon and tyrannical monster responsible for turning the world into a ruined wasteland. Players must use Amaterasu’s magical abilities and arsenal of items, attacks and Celestial Brush techniques to restore the land of Nippon to its previous glory full of life and color. Along the way, Amaterasu will be called upon to help a cast of quirky and intriguing characters and defeat a bevy of brutal enemies to rid the land of Orochi’s curse.

Players will be able to choose between playing in a modern widescreen format or the original 2007 release’s 4:3 ratio. Interactive loading game screens from the original game are also included, allowing players to earn bonus demon fangs which can be traded for in-game items.

 

Okami is a truly beloved classic game. Will you be buying this remaster?

Sony released the following

 

DR4 on PS4. It just sounds perfect together, right?

However, as much as we’re proud of our work on Dead Rising 4, we didn’t just want to bring the game to the PS4 and leave it at that. We wanted to bring something big, epic and new for our fans. New content, a new way to play and a new collection of all of our best stuff. So today, we’re not just announcing that Dead Rising 4 is coming… but that Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package is coming!

So what, you may ask, is Frank’s Big Package? Well, apart from a chance for us to chuckle at the (very Dead Rising-esque) name that we came up with, it is the biggest and most awesome collection of zombie slaying video gaming content you could ever hope for!

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package includes:

  • Dead Rising 4: the latest greatest version of the game, including post-launch difficulty settings and upcoming updates.
  • Capcom Heroes: an all-new way to experience the Dead Rising 4 story that lets our hero Frank West wear over a dozen outfits and perform outrageous special attacks inspired by classic Capcom characters.
  • All downloadable content: costumes and weapons from the Stocking Stuffer Holiday Pack, additional single player content in Frank Rising and multiplayer action in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf.
  • All bonus content: Street Fighter Outfit Pack, My Bloody Valentine Pack, Candy Cane Crossbow, Slicecycle, Sir-Ice-A-Lot, Ugly Winter Sweater, and X-Fists.

……………………………

While obviously, the main attraction is the core Dead Rising 4 experience, the studio has been busy working on the all-new Capcom Heroes addition. Being able to play with the powers and costumes of some of our favorite Capcom characters has been really fun and we think players are going to get a kick (or punch!) out of it too. We’re going to be rolling out over a dozen heroes that Frank will be able to embody in the game, but so far, we’ve shown Sissel from Ghost Trick, X from the Mega Man series and Street Fighter’s Cammy.

 

 

This is an interesting turn of events. I did not expect to see Dead Rising 4 come to PS4 at all. The new additions seem amazing, and they might make this a cant miss title. The game is coming December 5, 2017 for $49.99.

Capcom sent out the following

 

The sequel to one of the most popular puzzle games of all time comes to mobile in the all new Puzzle Fighter. Developed by Capcom Vancouver from the ground up, the classic arcade puzzle game gets modernized with a new look and new features for free download on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The game will be coming soon for soft-launch in select countries and a global release is planned for late 2017.

Puzzle Fighter features an outstanding roster of legendary characters and stages from popular Capcom franchises. Fan-favorites such as Ryu, Ken or Chun-Li (Street Fighter), X (Mega Man), Morrigan (Darkstalkers), Frank West (Dead Rising) and more come to life with VO and cinematic special moves. Players pick one main character each with their own strengths and benefits, to face-off in explosive gem-crushing action. In addition, two assist characters can be chosen to further enhance the abilities of the main character. Simple to learn but deep in strategy, this highly addictive puzzle game has players strategically building up gems and destroying them to unleash epic combos that can knock out their opponent. Thrilling real-time versus battles, rewarding single player options and an array of content to unlock await in this ultimate puzzle fight!

This is a certainly unique looking game. Super Puzzle Fighter II was an all time classic, and the return of the series is welcome, although some may find this to be very different than the Puzzle Fighter of the past.

Nintendo has a hit fighting game with Arms, and if this tease from Streeet Fighter Producer Yoshinori Ono is any indication, there might be some crossover DLC down the line.

Ono replied to a tweet telling him how SF II was the favourite fighting game of Arms producer Kosuke Yabuki and a suggestion was made for Dhalsim as a guest fighter. He responded that it was a cool idea and he will think it over.

Ono could very well have been joking, but that would be a cool thing to happen. Would you want Street Fighter DLC for Arms?
