Street Fighter V Hitting The Streets On February 16th

You’ve got four months to build thumb callouses by tapping on walls, work on your speed and agility with shadowtapping, and build bone density destroying a bamboo stem with your phalanges, as Capcom have announced Street Fighter V [official site] is coming on February 16th, 2016. They’re also confirmed the stretchy Dhalsim is returning for the brawl, and spoken a bit more about their plans to keep adding new fighters in updates rather than new releases.

Street Fighter V Enters Beta October 24

Capcom have announced the first Street Fighter V [official site] beta test on PC, to run October 24-25. And if you’re sick of that PS4-owning mate who’s been bragging on about getting console access to the beta two days prior, you’ll be able to kick his virtual arse as the beta features cross-platform play.

Street Fighter V: Laura Gets Leaked, Zangief Gets Trailer

It appears Laura – a Brazlian jiu-jitsu-fighting, lightning wielding, half-finished braided hair-sporting brawler – is to be the next brand new addition to the Street Fighter V [official site] roster of characters. Although Japanese publication Famitsu posted and then pulled several images of Laura stepping-to with Ryu on Friday, NeoGaffers were quick to capture the action shots and thus allow me to deliver them to you right now. Oh, and Zangief’s in and has a new trailer. Happy weekend.

Not Resident Evil: Multiplayer Spin-off Umbrella Corps

This is not a Resident Evil game.

Umbrella Corps sounds like the name of an English regiment in an WW2 spoof movie starring Adam Sandler. Under the leadership of Sir Lance Corporal Wilbert Bottombugle, the Umbrella Corps turn their noses up at Sandler until “that blasted Yank” saves the day by accidentally blowing up Oberleutnant Schnauzersniffer’s sausage stash. The Queen awards him a medal, then squeezes his bum.

Not quite. Umbrella Corps [official site] is actually a competitive team-based shooter spin-off from Resident Evil. Capcom announced it today at the Tokyo Game Show, and are planning a 2016 release.

Street Fighter V Reveals New Fighter But Wait, Wrestling!

Capcom have revealed a brand new fighter throwing down in Street Fighter V [official site], the wind-whirling Rashid, but look, his unveiling has mostly reminded me that I never told you about a ridiculous and amazing older character confirmed to return in the new punch ‘em up. Yes yes I know you may want to learn about Rashid and I’ll get to the Middle Eastern scrapper soon but first: check out the absurdity of wrestler Rainbow Mika, who pumps the crowd and calls her tag-team partner to pummel peeps:

Capcom RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Heads To PC

Unexpected and welcome news has just reached us from Capcom HQ. No, we’re not going to get a Megaman Battle Network Legacy collection on PC but there is a port incoming – intriguing RPG Dragon’s Dogma [official site], in its expanded Dark Arisen edition, will be landing on PC in January.

“The PC version will feature stunningly high-res graphics and improved fidelity, as well as support for both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers, as well as a traditional keyboard and mouse control scheme.”

It’s a fantasy RPG with AI controlled party members who are referred to as “pawns”. I haven’t played it but I have a soft spot for it already because one person I know, who has terrible taste in everything, thinks it’s a load of cobblers.

Eyebeams, Go! Resident Evil 0 HD’s Wesker Mode


Resident Evil is super goofy, but in a loveable way – when it’s not taking itself too seriously. A new addition to the upcoming revamp of Resident Evil 0 [official site] looks to be on the knowingly silly side, starring the mutated Albert Wesker zapping zombies with his eyebeams.

Wesker Mode is a separate mode with Bertie larking about with Rebecca Chambers and sorta disarming the tension by casually zipping around at superspeed and exploding monsters with his psychic powers. Come see how adorably daft this is:

Let’s Rock: Mega Man Legacy Collection Released

I was a little dismissive when Capcom announced the Mega Man Legacy Collection during E3 in June, thinking that the bundle of Mega Man 1-6 would be the usual slapdash retro collection with some ugly graphics filters on top. Oh, what a terrible cynic I was! It actually seems a fairly loving attempt to preserve them, and ‘porting’ studio Digital Eclipse’s first crack at the video games equivalent of “scanning a film in 4K” to create a print usable for the ages. It’s complicated. I’ll explain.

You can see for yourself how it’s turned out, as the Mega Man Legacy Collection last night launched on Steam, priced at £11.99.

Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake Stopped By Capcom Request

One way or another, Resident Evil 2 is being remade. Three weeks ago, we peeked at Resident Evil 2 Reborn, a fan project that’s been in the works for years and was due to launch this summer. Then, last week, Resident Evil owners Capcom confirmed they have plans for their own official remake. Now, surprise surprise, the fan remake is off.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Is In The Works At Capcom

Remember when I was like, “isn’t it weird that a bunch of dudes on the Internet are having to remake Resident Evil 2 themselves instead of Capcom?”

The question was posed, the universe agreed, and so the cogwheels turned: Capcom’s gonna make a nice lil’ Resident Evil 2 remake for y’all to enjoy. Thanks,
