Monster Hunter: World Behind Closed Doors at E3 2017 stars

It’s been a long while since we last saw a Monster Hunter title on a home console. Some time ago, Monster Hunter was rumored to come out on the PlayStation 3, but Capcom then moved its development over to the Wii. That title was known as Monster Hunter Tri. Although Tri was a great game, it still suffered limitation based on the hardware of the Wii. It’s hard to believe fans have been waiting eight years to see a Monster Hunter in true HD form. Finally, Monster Hunter: World realizes this and brings a “living breathing world” for us to explore in 4K.

PAX West 2016 Impression stars

As the premier gaming convention in the Seattle Washington area, Penny Arcade Expo (or PAX) is split into multiple gaming events held in Seattle (West), Boston (East), Melbourne (Aus), and San Antonio (South). We got to experience PAX West for the first time, and I have to say I’m impressed by everyone attending and exhibiting. Everything about the show is all for the passion of gaming. From consoles to PC to tabletop, PAX has it all.

Anime Expo 2016: Games and Events stars

Sengoku BASARA Review: History With a Dash of Femininity

Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes is Capcom’s followup to Devil Kings, a hack and slasher featuring warlords from Japan’s warring states period, all of whom either look more feminine than their real life counterparts or were outright replaced with the opposite sex. So we already know the history is bastardized, but what about the game?

Devil May Cry Sequel Announced stars

Capcom has just announced a new entry in the Devil May Cry franchise. While this is the fifth game in the series, the title is simply listed as DmC for the time being. With the abandonment of numbered installments and a whole new look, perhaps we’re looking at a reboot of the series. Overall it looks much grittier and has a western atmosphere to it. This comes as no surprise, considering that the game is developed by Ninja Theory, the team behind Sony’s Heavenly Blade. The game is scheduled to be released on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. No gameplay videos have been released yet, but screenshots and an excerpt from Capcom’s press release are included after the jump.

UPDATE: Trailer included within.

Japanese Mythology Turns Badass stars

Capcom’s secret project with CyberConnect2 has just been revealed. Asura’s Wrath is a new action game that follows Asura, a fallen deity. From the looks of the trailer, the game will include dynamic cutscenes with button input commands. This seems to be a continuing trend with Capcom games. So far, the scale of the action in this game looks amazing and will keep players’ adrenaline pumped throughout gameplay. It’s great to see a new IP from Capcom, especially in a time full of sequels. Screenshots and more after the jump.

UPDATE: Trailer embedded after the jump.

Edgeworth Continues with More Investigations stars

Gyakuten Kenji 2, sequel to Gyakuten Kenji or Ace Attorney Investigations, has just been announced. It will feature a new gameplay system, which has yet to be detailed. The only clue that’s been given is that key word for it is “chess.” Perhaps this means players will begin “trapping” enemies’ faulty logic until they get a “checkmate?” Otherwise, gameplay doesn’t seem to change much. More after the jump.
