EVO 2016 is almost over, fighting game fans, but a lot can happen in the final moments, like a pixel-sliver win or tournament finals for Mortal Kombat X, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Guild Gear Xrd: Revelator, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Street Fighter V.
Street Fighter V’s new story DLC is really ridiculous and silly. You can watch me fumble and laugh through the first 30 minutes or so below. (Worth noting: it’s free!)
Over the decades, Japanese developers have churned out a mind-boggling number of video games. Some are good, and some are bad. These are the thirty-one most important ones.
Sixteen characters made the cut for Street Fighter V, but they weren’t the only ones designed for the game. Capcom have shared some sketches of fighters who were created but failed to make the finished product, and yeah, it’s pretty easy seeing why most of them died where they did.
Resident Evil 7's first-person take on the franchise is a bold experiment that holds tons of promise. The same could be said for Umbrella Corps, a new attempt by Capcom to graft multiplayer onto Resident Evil. Sadly, it doesn’t really work.
Street Fighter V’s long-awaited story mode arrives this Friday on PlayStation 4 and PC. In case you need more incentive stay offline to play an extended single-player mode, Capcom’s releasing Balrog as well.
Sounds like Daigo Umehara thinks Street Fighter V needs an arcade release in Japan. Event Hubs reported he wondered if the game will still be played next year. Umehara added that the lack of an arcade release was a problem for Japanese gamers.
Mighty No. 9 designer Keiji Inafune was deeply frank about his latest game’s development troubles on a stream meant to celebrate its launch. It’s not something you hear very often from typically quiet Japanese game developers.
In the wake of Resident Evil 7's E3 reveal, Capcom dropped a teaser demo that’s... different. “Resident Evil? More like Resident P.T.-vil,” said somebody somewhere, probably. But according to Capcom, the final game will be more like classic Residents Evil (the correct plural; fight me) than people are expecting.
This is clever. Here’s how Capcom is working in the number seven in the Japanese version, which is Biohazard 7, and the international version, which, of course, is Resident Evil 7.
It’s out January 24, 2017. It’s a first-person game. And it’s compatible with PlayStation VR, if you think you can stomach it.
UPDATE (6/13): Dead Rising 4 is official. Microsoft announced the game during their E3 press conference today, after a leak revealed it last week. It’ll be out for Xbox and Windows 10 this holiday.
Uh. Well. Okay, then.
Though multiplayer is the main draw for games like Street Fighter V, people have come to expect those games to have story modes for solo players. At the end of the month, Street Fighter V gets one for free.
Capcom announced today that it has banned fighting game competitor Noel Brown from the Capcom Pro Tour’s 2016 season, due to “unwarranted and unwanted” touching of a woman at a recent fighting game tournament. He’s also been banned from EVO 2016.
It’s only a few seconds, but damn, it just hangs there. You can’t unsee it.
Well, this exists.
