The publisher will give players the chance to try out Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the franchise’s origin story; Mega Man Legacy Collection, a remastered collection of the Blue Bomber’s 8-bit history; and Street Fighter V, the next entry in the seminal fighting series. Kiosks for a few currently available titles will also line the Capcom booth including Resident Evil Revelations 2, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
Capcom will also host a pair of panels this weekend, including their semi-annual “World of Capcom” panel, which will include an overview of the publisher’s upcoming game schedule. In addition to updates on Street Fighter V and Resident Evil 0, fans should be on the lookout for “exclusive first-looks, reveals, and special surprises.”

Three new games are now available on the Xbox Games Store, and all three involve rather unorthodox heroes.
Batman: Arkham Knight leads the way on the Xbox One with the finale of Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy. While “The Batman” himself is possibly the most well-known superhero in the world, his methods often verge on madness. And in Arkham Knight, that includes taking on an army of supervillains by tearing through the streets of Gotham in a heavily-armed Batmobile. As the game’s trailers often say, this is war.
Capcom’s Dante is not quite as well known as Bruce Wayne, but his penchant for stylish demon slaying has made him a favorite among gamers. And Capcom has responded by remaking his fourth adventure for the Xbox One as Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. The Special Edition includes additional playable characters, new game modes, and a sparkling 1080p/60FPS graphical upgrade.
Finally this week, Telltale Games released the third episode of their Borderlands spinoff, Tales From the Borderlands: Catch A Ride. It’s available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and it stars a pair of heroes who escaped “very-near-almost-certain-death” in the previous episode with the assistance of “statuesque buttocks.”
OK, there’s the unorthodoxy I’m looking for. More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)
Are you ready to be the Batman? After a few delays, Rocksteady is finally ready to unleash Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4) on the PlayStation Store. Bruce Wayne was joined by another high-flying hero on the PS4 as Cacpom released the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition yesterday. The remake includes new playable characters and game modes, as well as an enhanced framerate and graphics. Also available for the PS4 this week is PlanetSide 2, a free-to-play shooter that marks the debut of Daybreak Games, the MMO publisher formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment.
If you’re looking for something a bit more talky, PS4 and PS3 owners will receive access to Telltale’s third Tales From the Borderlands episode, Catch A Ride. And finally, PS3 owners will be able to experience (or re-experience) Suikoden III, a classic RPG originally released for the PS2.
More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. And, as always, a rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Capcom has announced that Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition will make its PC, PS4, and Xbox One debut on June 23. The game will carry a $24.99 price tag at launch, but players who pre-order now will receive bonus costumes for Lady and Trish. PS4 owners who pre-order the game will also receive access to a custom Theme. You can check out the bonus costumes at the Capcom-Unity blog.
Also be sure to give the new gameplay trailer above a watch. It includes all five playable characters (Nero, Dante, Vergil, Lady, and Trish) and a look at the game’s brand new Legendary Dark Knight Mode.
Capcom is jumping back on the remaster bandwagon with the announcement that DMC: Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 4 will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.
A “Definitive Edition” of Ninja Theory’s DMC: Devil May Cry will arrive first, on March 17 to be exact, with a variety of new features. First and foremost, the game will include all of DMC’s DLC (including the “Vergil’s Downfall” expansion) as well as new content exclusive to the new-gen re-release. A variety of new gameplay modes will also be included such as the brand new wave-based Vergil’s Bloody Palace Mode, and a trio of new difficulty levels (Hardcore Mode, Must Style Mode, and Gods Must Die Mode). Finally, every piece of DMC: Devil May Cry content will run at 60 frames per second with 1080p visuals.
As for the PS4/Xbox One “Special Edition” of Devil May Cry 4, it’ll be available sometime in the Summer and Capcom has promised to reveal more details about its pending release soon.
Since Devil May Cry 4‘s release four years ago, gamers have been looking for a new Devil May Cry game to sink their teeth into. (And no, I don’t mean THIS garbage.) While their thirst won’t be completely quenched, Capcom Mobile has decided to throw a bargain their way. Not only is Devil May Cry 4 releasing on Apple’s App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch, it’s got a limited time launch price of $1.99. I mean, heck, I already OWN Devil May Cry 4 and I’m still considering it.
The game is available now with retina display graphics and GameCenter achievement support. No details regarding an iPad release have been announced.
