Here’s the line-up of new content available for download now – providing Nintendo’s servers have recovered from the influx of traffic post-show: Continue reading
Mega Man games are a rarity these days, and when a new one’s announced, it’s often a Virtual Console re-release. While Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 garners millions in Kickstarter pledges, Capcom’s 8-bit hero has taken a back-seat, with the controversial Mega Man Legends 3 cancellation remaining a sore subject in some gamers’ eyes.
For fans that love to double-dip, or for those looking for a cheap entry point to the Mega Man franchise, Capcom will release Mega Man Legacy Collection on Nintendo 3DS late this year – following HD versions on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the summer. Continue reading

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies was released in Japan just over a month ago, with the Western release still set to land this fall. While the game was originally confirmed as a download-only title, we previously reported that Capcom was still open to the idea of a physical release. Christian Svensson, the Senior Vice President of Capcom USA during the time, reached out to fans, stating that if the demand was strong enough, there was still a chance that North America would receive boxed copies. Since then, he’s now left the company, ruling out any possibility of the game releasing outside of the eShop. Continue reading

For years there was no word of localisation apart from a poll held by Capcom to see which Japan-only game fans would like to see. Layton Vs. Wright won with over 7000 votes but no confirmation came from Capcom or Nintendo. The game released in Japan on November 29, 2012 and thus many people assumed we would never see it in the West.

Last month, we reported that the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series would be getting an overseas release. The downside of the news being that Capcom had only a digital release in mind, while Japanese buyers would be able to get their hands on boxed copies of the game. Though this was clearly good news for Western fans of the series, many were left disappointed over the fact that they wouldn’t be able to purchase a physical release of the game. Continue reading
