No GravatarCapcom just released new footage for Monster Hunter World.

This is the Demo from E3 2017, with some of the events in different order. This is what Capcom has to say about the footage.

The video takes a deeper look at how one of the upcoming title’s quests unfolds as players set off on their journey to defeat the giant new monster, Anjanath, in the lush and leafy paradise of the Ancient Forest.

Monster Hunter: World sees players take on the role of a hunter that completes various quests to hunt and slay monsters within a lively living and breathing eco-system full of predators…. and prey. In the video you can see some of the creatures you can expect to come across within the New World, the newly discovered continent where Monster Hunter: World is set, including the Great Jagras which has the ability to swallow its prey whole and one of the Monster Hunter series favorites, Rathalos.

Players are able to utilize survival tools such as the slinger and Scoutfly to aid them in their hunt. By using these skills to their advantage hunters can lure monsters into traps and even pit them against each other in an epic fierce battle. Can our hunter successfully survive the fight and slay the Anjanath? He’ll need to select his weapon choice carefully from 14 different weapon classes and think strategically about how to take the giant foe down. Don’t forget to pack the camouflaging ghillie suit!

Here is some surprising news. Bandai Namco and Capcom have entered into a cross-licensing agreement for online matching for games like Street Fighter.

Capcom stated

The purpose of this agreement is to improve the user experience while accelerating the production of titles and reducing development costs for both parties. Further, with this cross-license for online matching, Capcom aims to effectively utilize the patents it has been granted in game series such as Street Fighter in order to deliver even more exciting content to game players.

With this agreement as a starting point, Capcom will continue to explore cross-licensing opportunities in order to safeguard its patents while improving the user experience and contributing to a healthier game industry.

This is really exciting news, as the two companies working together to use their patents to better online gaming could be a (no pun intended) game changer for the industry. This could usher in a new era for online gaming, for Street Fighter and Tekken and other such games.

Capcom released a standalone playable story demo for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite today, along with revealing four new characters for both the Marvel and Capcom forces.

The Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite demo gives a sneak peak to the story mode, the first time for the popular action-fighting franchise. Players will find themselves at the center of a battle with characters on both sides working together to stop Ultron Sigma.

The heroes revealed today were: Thanos. Gamora, Nova and Doctor Strange from Marvel and Dante, Zero, Spencer and Arthur of the Capcom Universe.

Franchise newcomer Gamora along with all the characters will each have their own unique abilities and special moves to help defeat the supervillian. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will also feature locations merged together from both universes. “Knowmoon,” a combination of the outpost Knowhere from the Marvel Universe and Third Moon from the Strider series, “Xgard,” a mixture of Thor’s homeland Asgard and Abel City from the Mega Man X series, were two of the many more locations that were released today.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be released in North America and Europe on September 19, 2017 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Window PC systems.

Check out the new story mode and game-play trailers Capcom released today below.

While the announcement of Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 only felt inevitable given the success of the first collection, this new package feels a bit incomplete to me. This time we are getting treated to Mega Man 7MM8MM9, and MM10, but where is Mega Man’s other 16-bit outing?

Mega Man & Bass (originally released in 1998 in Japan on the Super Famicom) takes place directly after the events of MM8 and gives players the ability to play as either of the two titular characters. Featuring some unique robot masters, 100 CDs to collect to unlock profiles on all of the characters in the franchise to date (since the game was released in honor of the series 10th/15th anniversary), a fantastic soundtrack, and a solid level of challenge, MM&B is perhaps one of the best entries in the classic series. Leaving it out seems like a big mistake.

However, we also know that at this time Capcom is passing on Nintendo platforms, so that feels like a bit of a double-whammy. Still, there’s always the possibility of MM&B appearing later on in another special collection of Mega Man titles.

Time will tell!

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is coming to the PS4, XBox One, and PC on August 8.

Capcom has officially announced Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

The legacy continues with Mega Man Legacy Collection 2! Bringing together four of the Blue Bomber’s adventures in one package with loads of bonus content and challenges, this collection spans the evolution – and retro revolution – of the classic side-scrolling series starting August 8th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99 both digitally and at retail in North America

It is good that the collections are continuing, but why no Switch version? You would think that would be a no brainer,

Monster Hunter is already helping Nintendo out, and this is only hours after the game was announced for Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo’s market value has risen by 2.2 billion dollars after the announcement of Monster Hunter XX for Switch. Yes, that number is real. This has resulted in an eight year high for the company, which is a sign of investors going all in on Nintendo and the Switch.  Monster Hunter is a major deal in Japan, and is considered a true killer app for any system. The fact that the Switch is receiving an entry may have caused investors to realize that the momentum of the system is not slowing down anytime soon.

Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter II launches tomorrow on the Nintendo Switch, but the publisher is not stopping there. Capcom, via the official Monster Hunter twitter account, has revelaed that Monster Hunter XX will receive a Nintendo Switch version

 

This is a really big deal and the Monster Hunter series was directly responsible for a lot of the success of the 3DS. Hopefully the game finds a big audience on the Switch, although it is almost guaranteed to do so. It is a good move by Capcom and this is the right time to do it.
