September 19: That’s when you’ll be playing Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, the next entry in the on-again-off-again will-they-or-won’t-they fighting game crossover series, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and/or PC. Advertisement Besides announcing the game’s release date, Capcom officially let loose the news about the new characters joining the 2-0n-2 tag team game’s roster of fighters. From the Capcom side, there’s Street Fighter’s Chun-Li, Resident Evil’s Chris Redfield, and Strider’s Strider. The Marvel heroes include Thor, Hawkeye, Hulk, and everybody’s favorite foul-mouthed procyonid Rocket Raccoon. But wait—there’s more! Ultron will also join the battle, as well as Mega Man X antagonist Sigma, although the latter will have to be purchased separately via the post-launch Character Pass DLC. This will feature 6 extra fighters in total. Capcom also took the wraps off the game’s big bad: It’s Ultron Sigma, some kinda trans-dimensional combination of the two evilest robots. Best not to think about it too much. You’ll learn all about him in the game’s “cinematic Story Mode,” Capcom says. The new characters join the fighters announced last year at PlayStation Experience, those being Captain America, Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Mega Man X, Morrigan, and Ryu.

Today, Capcom announced that it has delayed its upcoming free Not a Hero DLC for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard out of its previously planned release sometime in Spring. …Read More The post Resident Evil 7 Not a Hero DLC Delayed by Tyler Fischer appeared first on DualShockers.
Typically, delays are announced via press release. Capcom, however, filmed a three-minute clip to announce it’s pushing back the release of Resident Evil 7 free DLC Not A Hero. Advertisement “We got close to completing the game content,” said RE’ director Koshi Nakanishi. “However, in light of the incredible reception to the release of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that this DLC was not good enough to meet those high expectations.” Remember, this DLC is free. Advertisement Producer Masachika Kawata added, “Our aim is for this content to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time in order to achieve that goal.” Nakanishi said “rest assured” that the team will use this time to make something players love. Then, executive producer Jun Takeuchi appeared on screen and once again explained why the three of them decided to delay the free DLC, saying, “This free DLC is not yet ready to meet your expectations.” Takeuchi also announced Capcom was working on another piece of RE7 DLC. He then asked fans for their continued support and apologized. There was no mention as to when READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
If modders had their way, Maya would be way more powerful. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s recent release on PC has opened the floodgates for a varied collection of mods. Since the game arrived on Steam last December, fans have tweaked the frantic three-on-three title in a variety of ways, from simple gameplay adjustments to complete model swaps. Advertisement Owing to the quirky nature of its larger franchise, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is a title rife with debatable mechanics. As time has passed from its initial release in 2011, competitive players have discovered infinite combos (inescapable strings that could potentially go on forever if a player’s execution is good enough). Some characters have proven to be too weak for high-level play. A handful of community members are trying to change this by altering how the game plays. Others are trying to strengthen some of the game’s weaker characters. Advertisement The modders working to improve the game are doing subtle but significant work. One such player, tournament broadcaster Sixfortyfive, released a pair of videos last week demonstrating his work shifting gameplay in new directions. His first, for instance, attempts to make Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3’s Aerial Exchanges more like…
Yesterday, Capcom revealed some new costumes for Street Fighter V. On April 25th, you’ll be able to dress up Alex, R. Mika and Chun-Li for work. I sat down with Compete’s Maddy Myers, the ultimate Street Fighter fangirl, to talk about what works and what doesn’t. Advertisement Gita Jackson: Let’s start by talking about Alex’s firefighter costume—Maddy, you wanna give me some background on Alex as a character? Maddy Myers: Yeah! So Alex is one of the American characters in Street Fighter. Every fighter is from a different country and usually represents that country’s style in terms of how they dress and behave (all the predictable complications can arise with that). Alex is from Manhattan; one of his old voice lines refers to Brooklyn street fights, so we can assume he spends some time around there. His past looks have usually featured suspenders and flannel, which might not be out of place in modern-day Brooklyn. More importantly, Alex is a character who has long been rumored to be gay. Since he wears suspenders a lot (a classic queer dude signifier!), fans have read into that. He’s also a READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
Capcom has announced in a new post on its Unity blog that work costumes are coming to some of Street Fighter V’s roster of characters.

Mika, and Chun-Li will also be released on the same day. Specifically, Alex is getting a firefighter gear, R. Mika will be donning a cheerleader outfit, and Chun-Li will be in business attire.

Capcom has announced that a remastered version of its iconic Thailand stage is making its way to Street Fighter V alongside new costumes. “The Thailand Stage is where we all first met M. Bison, the evil dictator and head of Shadaloo, in Street Fighter II,” wrote the developer. “The stage’s intricate bell and statues have been carefully recreated in SFV with great detail, as well as the stage’s memorable theme.” The stage will be available on April 25 for $3.99 / ￥400 / €3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money. Players will also be able to grab premium school costumes for Ryu, Chun-Li and Juri on the same day. You can check out images and descriptions of each below. “Ryu’s costume is based on a stereotypical Japanese Bancho (student gang leader) with direct input from a team member who actually used to wear clothes like this when he was younger. The lining on his coat depicts a faceoff between a Dragon and a Tiger.” “Keeping with the atmosphere of her origin, Chun-Li’s costume represents her as an Honor Roll student. She only has the highest standards for herself and always aims to be the top of her class.” “As READ FULL STORY AT…
