212w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video interview with with Capcom's Morgan Gray covering Dark Void on the PS3.
To quote: The same day Jeff hit up Seth Killian to talk Super Street Fighter IV inside Capcom's US HQ, I sat down with Senior Producer Morgan Gray for some quality time with Dark Void.
This was the first time I've seen the game running in action on PS3, and Morgan was kind enough to walk us through a hefty chunk of jet-packing, on-foot shooting and unique "vertical combat" – the three key components that make up Dark Void's unique blend of third-person action.
Dark Void's due out on January 19, but for now, there's plenty of footage to peep below.
212w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video today on the PlayStation Blog discussing Super Street Fighter IV for PS3 with Capcom's Seth Killian.
To quote: Recently we were granted an hour to go hands on with the follow-up to Capcom's Street Fighter IV. You may have seen some shots of new character Juri, or the resurrected (and redesigned) DeeJay and T. Hawk. You can see them in action in the video below.
Beyond that, Capcom Senior Community Manager Seth Killian (a SF player so good he can beat you with one hand) walks us through some of the new features and moves we'll be seeing when Super Street Fighter IV drops in 2010.
Better yet, he promises to try and get hands on time for some of you readers (like last year's Street Fighter Club and game launch). Go on, watch.
219w ago - It appears as though Capcom's big announcement has been leaked a day early... French Web site JV247.com claims that the big announcement is Super Street Fighter IV, and this version will sport characters including as T.Hawk and Juri.
"The source is apparently JV247, a French Web site, which claims an anonymous source revealed a couple of facts about the game - namely, that two of the new characters for the game are T.Hawk and Juri, the former a veteran of Super Street Fighter II, and the latter seemingly new.
We imagine we'll have more details tomorrow, but JV247 does note that it's unconfirmed as to whether this will be a new, seperate game, or whether it will be DLC. Or both. Or neither. Or, in fact, what systems it'll be coming to."
220w ago - Capcom announced today that two titles on display at the 2009 Tokyo Game Show will be coming to North America and Europe in 2010.
New Capcom titles Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes and Ghost Trick (working title for North America and Europe), displayed to the Japanese public for the first time in Tokyo, will be making the transition to western gamers next year.
To quote from the Press Release: Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes, the latest in Capcom's popular samurai action series, makes it first appearance on both the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii.
Set during a tumultuous period of Japanese history, Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes allows players to take up the swords of more than a dozen fierce samurai warriors in huge battles against hundreds of opponents. Players will be able to unlock playable characters, as well as supporting generals who will make it easier to command and lead armies with the ultimate goal of re-writing history to rule all of 16th century Japan.
The action is fast-paced and stylish, taking combat cues from producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi's other big series, Devil May Cry. The game's main campaign will be the same on both gaming platforms, with the addition of online co-op for the PlayStation 3.
221w ago - During a recent interview with Capcom's Jun Takeuchi, 1UP (linked above) was told that several Japanese developers welcome Sony's upcoming PS3 Motion Controller as it opens the door for Wii-to-PS3 ports.
To quote from the interview: "1UP: What about Sony's motion control device?
JT: Well just being from Capcom, I can tell you that we have a lot of good ideas on how to make use of that technology and we're looking forward to putting them into practice.
However, speaking to other developers in Japan, I've heard a few of them say they were delighted by the Sony motion controller because they can just port over their Wii titles to the PS3."
