50°
2w ago - Capcom's Brett Elston announced today that Mega Man X5 is out now on PlayStation Store with details below.

To quote: Last week we finally brought Mega Man X4 to PlayStation Store.

This beloved entry in the X series can be found on both PS3 and Vita online shops, enabling fans to rediscover - or perhaps play for the first time - one of the greatest action games of the PSone era. But we have even more good news - Mega Man X5 is also available today!

Both classic titles are $5.99 and represent some of 2D gaming's finest work. If you missed these back in the day, it's a great time to jump in and find out why so many fans continue to hold both titles in such high regard. And with both available on Vita, you can play them anywhere!

If you're in the mood for even more classic Mega Man goodness, check out Mega Man 1~4 in the PS imports section - they're also playable on PS3 or PS Vita!
 

Capcom on Balancing Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 3

50°
17w ago - Capcom Senior Online Community Specialist Peter Rosas shared details today on balancing Ultra Street Fighter IV on PlayStation 3 below.

To quote: What's up guys? Peter Rosas here; some of you may better know me as "ComboFiend." I'm the Fighting Game Community Specialist here at Capcom USA and have acted as the Associate Director of Battle Design on Ultra Street Fighter IV (USFIV).

First and foremost, let me say it's definitely an honor for me to be on the official PlayStation Blog to talk to you guys about how the character specific battle balance changes for USFIV were decided upon and what you can expect to see in USFIV.

For those who may not be aware, the entire reason USFIV was made was due to ever-mounting requests from fans. They let us know that although a lot of characters had a possibility of winning in Super Street Fighter IV AE ver.2012, the gap between the highest and lowest ranked characters was a tad noticeable.

Additionally, the characters that were regarded in the dreaded "bottom five" category had an almost zero chance of ever winning a high level tournament. Since it was the fans who requested the game to be balanced further, we figured "who better would know what Ryu or Ken needs to win than those who are grinding with them every day online?" And with...
 

Capcom: Dustforce Launches Today on PS3 and PlayStation Vita

33w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez announced that Dustforce launches today on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: In any other context outside of games, "S" rank being the pinnacle of grades wouldn't make sense. But since we're talking games here, we all know that the "S" rank is where it's at.

I have a theory that it originated in Japanese games (where many of the great gaming traditions started) and their disregard for A being the first letter of the alphabet. Whether or not that's true, the tradition of Capcom platforming lives on in Dustforce, which launches today on PS3 and PS Vita.

Originally made by Hitbox Team and released for PC, Dustforce caught our eye because it shares a few elements of the best platformers we've made: challenge, design, and soundtrack.

Dustforce seems very simple at first glance, and it really is. The idea is to move your acrobatic janitor through the level as fast as you can, while cleaning all the dirt, dust, and grime. You're given a few abilities to do this: double jumps, wall runs, dashes, etc.

There are also some tricks that you need to learn, like down dashing onto a slope for max speed, or learning to dash as soon as you land to maintain dash speed. Using these tools, it's up to you to find the...
 

Video: Capcom Officially Reveals Resident Evil 6 for PlayStation 3

139w ago - Today Capcom Product Marketing Manager John Diamonon has officially revealed Resident Evil 6 for PlayStation 3 alongside a video trailer below!

To quote: Ni Hao PlayStation Playas, this is John Diamonon, the Brand Manager for Resident Evil in North America, and it's been a while my friends.

Last time I was here, I announced MvC3 and you were all like, "Yeah!" This time, I have news that's gonna make you say, "EFF yeah!"

It's my pleasure to announce that the next installment of the canonical Resident Evil series, Resident Evil 6, returns on November 20, 2012.

That gives you a whole month to enjoy the game (enjoy life really) before the end of the Mayan calendar when the real zombie apocalypse happens. We figure you might need some practice killing the infected to prepare yourself.

Oops. Did I say zombies? Resident Evil 6 has zombies? Watch the trailer and find out.





WHAAAAATTTTT??? Man, when I had hair in the 90's, it looked exactly like Leon's. I seriously think there's [Register or Login to view links] for his doo. He needs a fade or something.

Anyway, comment below and tell me what you think. Oh. It might be a day before I get...
 

Video: Capcom's Asuras Wrath Points to a 2012 Release on PS3

175w ago - Today James Gallagher has shared a video and word that Capcom's Asuras Wrath currently points to a 2012 release on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: After seeing this trailer at Captivate, the hotel was rattling with chat of 'God Finger', 'Heavenly Point' and 'Space Cuticle'.

The game was actually [Register or Login to view links] and, with so many of the games on show such as Dragon's Dogma suggesting a shift towards more Western influences with new Capcom games, it had a distinctly Japanese feel along similar lines to the likes of God Hand.

However, while there's nothing new about an action game featuring gigantic Gods, there's one series that PlayStation fans are particularly familiar with, so I asked director Seiji Shimoda how far the similarities run...

First of all I'm honored for Asura's Wrath to be mentioned in the same breath as God of War - I have played it and it's an incredible game. Superficially, there are some resemblances but we're hoping that, as you see more of Asura's Wrath, you're going feel that it's something completely different; that it doesn't really compare with anything else in action gaming.
