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.

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.
Monster Hunter Generations will be out for 3DS on July 15, Capcom said today. There’ll also be a slick Monster Hunter-themed New 3DS XL to go along with it.
Clearly unafraid of Final Fantasy XV, and stealing all of my free time, Capcom is releasing the next Phoenix Wright in the United States this September. New trailer above.
It can happen. Just ask Florida-based fitness lover Natascha Encinosa.
