Capcom Officially Unveils Horde Of New Games, DLC
Typically, a press release features one major announcement...not like a dozen.
Nevertheless, Capcom has delivered a veritable treasure trove of announcements, many of which will excite fans of the publisher's most popular franchises. Rather than dive right in and provide you with a wall of text, we'll hit the highlights in this fashion:
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of the Two Worlds: We heard about the supposed confirmation of a third entry and now, it's no longer "supposed." Iconic Marvel and Capcom characters will go head-to-head once more as you "battle in a comic book brought to life powered by Capcom's MT Framework." It's set to launch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in spring 2011.
Bionic Command Rearmed 2: The other title we anticipated is also confirmed; it's a sequel to the first Rearmed. Nathan Spencer is back and this time, he has to take down General Sabio, "a new technologically sophisticated foe," who has his finger on the trigger, so-to-speak. The trademark grappling hook will be back and yes, we'll get new and enhanced abilities as well. Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 will hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live service in Q1 2011.
Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes: Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi brings you the newest iteration in the BASARA series; "fun, action-packed and accessible," players will fight their way to the final battle known as "Sekigahara." Fist fights, swords, spears, bows, and even guns will be at your disposal, so get read to do battle this fall on the PlayStation 3 and Wii.
Dead Rising 2 Co-op: The Xbox 360 may be getting the exclusive Dead Rising 2 Prologue but at least PS3 owners will be able to partake of this new feature in the highly anticipated sequel. Buddy up and take down the stumbling hordes after the game hits store shelves on August 31.
Super Street Fighter IV Tournament Mode DLC: Compete online with only the best players in the world...if you think you've got what it takes, that is. Championship titles are up for grabs when this new piece of DLC drops on June 15 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. New DLC will also release on April 27; this first pack will be dubbed the Super Challengers 1 Pack and it'll feature costumes for Hakan, Makoto, Guy, Dudley and Dee Jay.
Lost Planet 2 DLC: Map Pack #1 features new maps for the 16-player multiplayer action and it comes to the PSN and XBL services on May 11. The two maps featured will be Helix and Back to the Island.
MotoGP 09/10 DLC: The first free update will boast the Silverstone Circuit for the 2010 season; remember, this game (which launched on March 23) features all the tracks and racers from the 2009 season with downloadable updates to the tracks, riders, teams and liveries for the 2010 season.
'whew' I think we're done.
