Resident Evil Movie Franchise Is Being Rebooted

Martin Moszkowicz of Germany’s Constantin Film has confirmed to Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that the Resident Evil movie franchise is being rebooted. Constantin currently holds the rights to the franchise and has worked on all of its installments. “Details such as the reboot director, stars, and how the reboot would fit into the franchise narrative are being kept under wraps,” say Variety. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which grossed $312 million worldwide, was to end the franchise but it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Variety further writes: The Resident Evil movie franchise has earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date, making it Europe’s most successful independent horror-genre movie franchise in history and the highest-grossing film series to be based on a video game. It’s unclear if Paul W.S. Anderson will return to work on the franchise as he’s currently working on a movie adaptation of Capcom’s Monster Hunter. What do our readers think of this?

Poll: Japan's Favorite Fighting Games

For a country that has made a whole bunch of fighting games, you better believe that Japan has its favorites. A recent survey revealed top twenty beloved titles, according to Weekly Famitsu readers. Advertisement Between April 13 and April 19, the magazine asked 2,461 readers to name their favorite fighting games. Ninety-two percent of respondents were men, while the remaining 8 percent were women. Six percent were in their teens, 43 percent in their 20s, 42 percent in their 30s, 8 percent in their 40s, and 1 percent in their 50s. As with the previous action game poll, each person was allowed to vote for up to three titles (though people could only vote for one or two if they wanted). Famitsu then calculated these votes as “points.” While the game titles have been localized for clarity, the hardware platforms are as listed by Famitsu. Advertisement 20. SoulCalibur V (PS3/Xbox 360) – 98 points 19. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round (PS4/PS3/Xbox One/PC) – 109 points 18. Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late[st] (Vita/PS4/PS3/Arcade) – 111 points 17.

Capcom Expects Resident Evil 7 to Sell 10 Million Units

It looks like Capcom is putting a lot of faith in Resident Evil 7 as it expects the title to sell at least 10 million units during its lifetime, according to a recent post-earnings Q&A the company posted on its investor relations site. Since the game’s launch in January until the end of the last fiscal year, which ended on March 31, 2017, Resident Evil 7 has sold over 3.5 million copies. That’s half-a-million less than what Capcom expected to sell in the same time frame but the company still believes the game sold well. It is a solid start, considering the short span between launch and fiscal year end. Further, unit sales for both titles continue to grow even now. What is more, the re-releases of Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 for current generation platforms are an example of successfully leveraging our library of assets; and they shipped a total of 2.8 million units during the fiscal year. The lifecycle for games is growing longer, driven by ongoing digital sales; as a result, Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 have each sold more than 7.5 to 10 million units cumulatively (including catalog and re-release sales).

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers Kicks Ass on Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch lacks modern fighting games like Street Fighter V and Injustice 2. However, it more than makes up for this deficit with an impressive collection of classic fighters. Samurai Shodown IV, King of Fighters ‘98, and Garou Mark of the Wolves (among others) help make Switch the go-to system for fans of old-school fighting games. That list is about to become even more prestigious when Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is released late next week. Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (which I’ll refer to as USFII from this point onward) is an update of 2008’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD. Unlike Street Fighter V at launch, USFII is packed with a great variety of modes. Users can now play the entire game with the original sprites and music — something that was sorely lacking with the 2008 release. There are even some Switch-exclusive modes. Though some modes are better than others, all of them help make USFII a feature-rich fighting game. As a lifelong fan of the Street Fighter franchise, I was curious to see how this game would play on Switch. I honestly expected USFII to be all but unplayable with READ…

Japanese Game Companies That Won't Allow YouTube Comments 

[Image: YouTube] Nintendo America, for example, allows comments on its YouTube videos. The company’s Japanese headquarters does not, and some people online in Japan don’t sound too happy. Advertisement This has been going on for a while now, but a recent 2ch thread shined a light on the discrepancy. It’s kind of strange that Nintendo doesn’t allow comments on Japanese YouTube, no? But Nintendo is not alone. Sony also doesn’t allow comments on its PlayStation Japan YouTube channel. (PlayStation North America and PlayStation Europe most certainly do!)  Neither does Capcom Japan. Square Enix Japan doen’t even track Likes, which is nuts. However, Square Enix North America tracks Likes and allows comments on its YouTube channel. There are exceptions, however! Atlus allows comments on its Japanese YouTube channel. Ditto for Sega. Good for them. Advertisement Advertisement But, as pointed out on 2ch, it’s still odd to see the European trailer for Nioh with comments, the North American one with comments, and the Japanese YouTube one like this: Here are some of the reactions to the comment-disabling practice on 2ch (be aware that READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Street Fighter Pros Are Annoyed That Two Big Tournaments Are On The Same Date

GIF Wolfkrone washes his hands after winning a match against Xian last Friday night. (gif via YouTube) Joshua “Wolfkrone” Philpot dominated the roster on Friday night’s Eleague Street Fighter V bracket, earning himself one of the slots in the playoff bracket on May 26. The only games Wolfkrone lost were to Kun “Xian” Ho, the winner of Final Round 20 and a big contender to win Eleague. In the end, Wolfkrone went 3-2 against Xian in their final loser’s bracket match, which cost Xian his chance at the playoffs. Advertisement Despite losing, Xian might be the lucky one. Now he can compete in Combo Breaker 2017, which starts on the exact same day as the Eleague playoffs. The dates for Combo Breaker 2017, which is part of the Capcom Pro Tour Street Fighter V tournament series, were announced back in November of last year. Eleague, however, didn’t confirm the scheduling for their Street Fighter V season until February. Almost all of the participants in the Eleague season are also competing in Capcom Pro Tour events, so the overlap is a known issue. Advertisement In order READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
