Capcom has just released a new trailer for Devil May Cry. The game is still in development, but if the trailer says anything, they are trying really hard to take the game in a new direction. Devil May Cry is no new franchise, but this is the first game in what will most likely be a new series. The previous Devil May Cry series ended with 4 games and a large fan base. This new game hopes to reel in new fans while also providing a new experience for fans of the original series. Watch the trailer below to understand why.
Get ready Lost Planet fans, the third round is on its way. Capcom, the makers of such fine games as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, has just hit us with a new cinematic trailer for the upcoming Lost Planet 3. The company has announced that the release date will be early 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, and has announced the name of the main protagonist. Meet Jim, a Utility Rig operator whose job occasionally involves killing a very large, angry akrid. Lost Planet 3 returns to the extreme conditions of the first title, while introducing new gameplay elements and characters. Not many other details have been released, but we expect to hear more at E3. We've got the trailer after the break.
Are you anticipating the new Resident Evil game? Well then you’re in luck because it looks like you’ll be getting your paws on the game over a month earlier than previously announced. The date, according to the trailer, is now October 2nd of this year rather than the previously announced November 20, 2012. The trailer reveals various characters motives, and the basic driving force of Resident Evil 6. Check out the trailer after the jump for full details.
Ah, good old’ Resident Evil, what splendorous treasures have you brought us today? The Resident Evil franchise has always been an ambitious one. From its many movies to its glorious games, every zombie fan knows Resident Evil for it gory, buckets o’ blood, dramatic action-horror storytelling. Resident Evil 6 is no exception to these defining traits.
Executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, director Eiichiro Sasaki, and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi bring you this Resident Evil 6 game trailer and give their own personal opinions about the next game in the franchise. Kobayashi also adds that together with the 150 people working on the game in Japan, the total around the world is 600 - the most anyone has ever worked on any Capcom game in its history. Obviously Capcom is taking this game to the highest achievable level for its fans, which of course we can all appreciate.

Putting the awful recent Street Fighter movie out of your mind, or even the so-terrible-it's-funny Street Fighter film with Van Damme, can you imagine what the cast of SFIV would look like if they were real? These images by Cazetta portraying some notable SF characters are so realistic looking that it's actually a little creepy.

There’s been quite a bit of speculation surrounding a Capcom Vs. Namco title, and finally all questions are put to rest as Capcom and Namco teamed up to announce Street Fighter X Tekken. Street Fighter X Tekken (pronounced “Street Fighter CROSS Tekken”) is an unprecedented match up of two classic fighting franchises. One a king of the 3D world, and the other a champion of 2D fighters. Bringing them together requires the other to forfeit their familiar terrain and succumb to an entirely new style of play. In other words, Namco’s fighter becomes Street Fighter-ized in order to make the cross over possible. Now before you Tekken fans start pouting about how unfair of an advantage that gives Capcom, you should also note that Namco is developing their own separate game - Tekken X Street Fighter. We can only speculate on Namco’s version at this point, but we suppose it will transplant the Street Fighter universe into the fully 3D world of Tekken, along with Tekken’s fighting mechanics.
According to Capcom, SFxTK is not going to come out “for awhile”. The real question, however, is if there are going to actually be two separate games released, or are they going to pick the best one? Perhaps they will find a middle ground out of the two and merge into one title. Whatever the case, we cannot wait for this dream fighter to come out. At least we have Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 to tide us over until then! We’ve got a few more images of Street Fighter X Tekken after the break.
