Second Street Fighter V Beta Coming At The End Of This Month

Street Fighter V already has one successful beta under its belt, but that isn’t stopping Capcom from scheduling another one to make sure this thing is in fighting shape. The second beta is coming at the end of this month and will feature cross-platform play between PlayStation 4 and PC users.

Accompanying the new cross-platform battles will be new characters, ranked matchmaking, combined leaderboards, player search and the ability to use your earned fight money to unlock new content within the game.

The beta will begin on October 22nd and will contain Ken, Necalli, Vega and R. Mika as playable characters. The next day on October 23rd Rashid will be joining the fray and then on October 24th Karin will be unlocked. The fighters from the previous beta will not be included this time.

The Street Fighter V beta will run from October 22nd to October 25th and will be available to play simultaneously on both PlayStation 4 and PC. The full game is slated to ship in Q1 2016.

Capcom Advising Fans To “Stay Tuned” For Resident Evil 7 News

The Resident Evil series hasn’t exactly been hitting home runs at the plate lately, with the main entries getting worse and worse and the Revelations series not doing much better.

As such, there’s a lot of pressure on Capcom to make Resident Evil 7 not only a game that finally shakes off the now dull Resident Evil 4 formula, but also deliver a game that’s actually worth playing.

Speaking with Dengeki PlayStation magazine, Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata said the following:

“We’re currently not at a state to talk about it… but please stay tuned.”

So, there is DEFINITELY something going on behind the scenes regarding what would be the 8th main installment in the Resident Evil series, but they haven’t quite nailed it down yet. I seriously hope that they are able to dig up gold and get this series moving in better direction again.

Competitive Mutiplayer-Focused Resident Evil Umbrella Corps Announced

We got a Resident Evil announcement today during the Tokyo Game Show, though it was not the one we were hoping for. Capcom took the stage to announce a new game called Resident Evil Umbrella Corps, which is described as a competitive multiplayer shooter in the same vein as Operation Raccoon City. For the sake of us all, lets hope that it ends up better than that one.

While the game is mostly third-person shooting action there will be some first-person shooting elements here and there. The matches will be quick and intense and feature maps themed from famous Resident Evil locations. Check out the first trailer for the game below.

Resident Evil Umbrella Corps will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC digitally early next year for $29.99.

Resident Evil Origins Collection Announced, Launches Early Next Year

Both the Resident Evil HD Remaster and the upcoming Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster are going to be packaged together in a collection called the Resident Evil Origins Collection. The collection will cost $19.99 and will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

A trailer was also released for this collection, which you can watch directly below.

Street Fighter V Collector’s Edition Revealed

Man, we’re hearing about a lot of collector’s editions today, aren’t we? Capcom has just announced what they have planned for the release of Street Fighter V, which certainly isn’t as lavish as the other collector’s editions for today but is still pretty sweet.

Street Fighter V collector's edition details

The collector’s edition for Street Fighter V comes with the game (duh), a 10-inch Ryu statue, a 48-page hardcover art book and code cards for bonus content. This bonus content includes digital comics, a soundtrack sampler and a one-month subscription to the Capcom Fighters Twitch channel.

Of course, there are also pre-order bonuses going around, which includes a bearded Ryu at GameStop, a covert ops Cammie at Best Buy, a sinister Bison costume at Amazon and a black dress for Chun-Li when purchased digitally. You just gotta love when the devs make deals to ensure that there is no way in hell that a person can get all of the content available, don’y ya?

Street Fighter V will launch in the Spring of 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and PC.

Mega Man Legacy Collection Digitally Releases This Month, Physically Next Year

Mega Man is being brought back into the limelight with the release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection, which packages the first 6 games in the Mega Man series all together with shiny new HD graphics. Now we have more details on when this collection will be releasing, and surprisingly enough it will be getting both a digital *and* physical release.

Mega Man Legacy Collection

First lets talk digital, as the Mega Man Legacy Collection will release digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 25th and will cost $14.99. I know, that really *was* quick!

The physical release is going to take a while longer before it releases, as it currently just has a release window of 2016. This version of the collection will cost $29.99, though any info on whether or not it contains more than the digital release is unknown.

There is also a 3DS version of this game in the works, though that is expected to launch both digitally and physically at some point next year.

Capcom Has Trademarked Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps

Things have been quiet for the Resident Evil series lately, though it looks like that could be coming to an end soon. Capcom has just registered a trademark for something called Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps in Europe and Japan.

Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps

Some are speculating that this could be a new spin-off game for the series, as a trademark for something called Umbrella Corps (without the Resident Evil brand) was registered at the beginning of this month. There could be some information regarding this at Gamescom next week, so stay tuned for that.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is set to make its debut on PlayStation Vita next month, whereas Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster will be releasing early next year for consoles and PC.
