News: We Hope Street Fighter V's Story Mode Is as Good as Its Trailer

We Hope Street Fighter V's Story Mode Is as Good as Its Trailer

Rise up

Street Fighter V's finally getting some dedicated single player content tomorrow in the form of a free downloadable story mode, and judging from its official trailer, it actually looks pretty good. Sure, the writing's as cheesy as you'd expect and it seems suitably mental, but it's a well worked video all the same. Having said that, we've...

Street Fighter V's Best Pro Player Rivalry Served Up an Incredible CEO 2016 Grand Final Last Night

You gotta watch this one

Fighting game tournament CEO 2016 ended with a bang last night as arguably the two best Street Fighter V players in the world went head to head in the grand final. South Korea's Infiltration has won several professional competitions already since Capcom's title launched, and he's often looked unstoppable as Nash, utilising...

Street Fighter V Free Story Mode Update Now Comes with Boxing Bruiser Balrog

But it's been delayed ever so slightly

The good news: Balrog is now busting onto the Street Fighter V scene alongside previously revealed kunoichi Ibuki as part of the game's free story mode update. The bad news: the update is no longer being released this month. The not-quite-as-disappointing-as-you-first-thought news: the update will now deploy...

Review: Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Umbrella Corps (PS4)

Corps party

Being loyal to a franchise's roots and formula is a tricky thing to manage. Veer too close and people will cry out concerns of stagnation and lack of innovation. Stray too far and they'll say it isn't worthy of the series' name. Whether this involves direct sequels or spin-offs, the amorphous goal of striding between faithfulness and...

E3 2016: Resident Evil 7 Producer Was Gutted by Silent Hills' Cancellation

Resident Evil 7 Producer Was Gutted by Silent Hills' Cancellation

"I really loved it"

Resident Evil 7 looks to have taken a little inspiration from P.T., the demo for Silent Hills. However, according to producer Masachika Kawata, the sequel was in development before Konami's famous demo deployed. That said, it sounds like everyone at Capcom was a big fan of the concept – and the publisher was sad to see the...

Resident Evil 7 on PS4 Aims to Finish What Silent Hills Started

Resi reanimated

It's fitting that Capcom would reveal the seventh instalment of its once great franchise alongside the much anticipated reveal of Hideo Kojima's latest project, because Resident Evil 7 seems to be a full realisation of what Kojima set out to do with Silent Hills. After years of inferior sequels, HD remasters, and some serious...

E3 2016: Resident Evil 7 Was Under Our Decomposed Noses All Along

Resident Evil 7 Was Under Our Decomposed Noses All Along

Funky smell

Last year, your humble host screamed like a baby over Kitchen – a very popular Capcom created tech demo for PlayStation VR. We always hoped that the idea would eventually expand into a full game, and during last night's Sony E3 2016 press conference, that's exactly what was teased. But we could have never imagined that it would turn...

In-Game Microtransactions No Longer Coming to Street Fighter V, Says Capcom

Developer ditches Zenny

"We will no longer be introducing Zenny to Street Fighter V as a real money currency option," Capcom has stated in its most recent Street Fighter V update. "After extensive testing and development, we came to the conclusion that it was not necessary in order to carry out our original vision for the product. Instead, we will...

New Single Player Modes Confirmed for Street Fighter V

Now we're talking?

Ah, the announcement that many Street Fighter fans have been waiting for. Well, kind of. Today, Capcom has spilled the beans on Street Fighter V's upcoming story mode expansion, which will apparently offer around four hours of new, narrative driven content. It'll be released at the end of June, as we know, and in it, you'll be...

Rumour: Dead Rising 4 Leaks, But May Be Skipping PS4

Dead Rising 4 Leaks, But May Be Skipping PS4

West's best

Dead Rising's never really felt like a PlayStation franchise. The original launched too early for the PlayStation 3, despite it getting "ported" to the Nintendo Wii. Dead Rising 2 and spin-off Off the Record did hit Sony's system, but the game's prequel episodes were exclusive to the Xbox 360. And then, of course, Dead Rising 3...

News: Capcom's Missed Its Target of Releasing One Street Fighter V Character Per Month

Capcom's Missed Its Target of Releasing One Street Fighter V Character Per Month

Poor Ibuki

Ever since Street Fighter V launched in February, Capcom's had a tough time trying to communicate with fans. The brawler is meant to be a platform that's constantly growing and evolving, but between content delays, communication cock-ups, and a supposedly stretched post-release development cycle, the Japanese company just can't seem to...
