Not too long ago, thinking of playing a Monster Hunter game on a Nintendo handheld was just wishful thinking. These days Capcom made a bet on the Big N’s handheld, one that has apparently payed off. Capcom is reporting that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has shipped 3.4 million units worldwide as of March 31, 2015. It’s still shy of the 3.9 million projected sales goal, but it’s no small number by any stretch of the imagination. It could easily get that number in a few months. As a matter of fact, it may have already.
For Capcom’s new Monster Hunter spinoff series, they’re hoping to see it sell 2.5 million units by March 31, 2016. Judging by the fact it’s an actual RPG and it’s in the very popular Monster Hunter series, they could actually achieve these sales. Hopefully we see them push this game out in the west as well!
It’s up the the mayor to save the day. The only thing that stands in his way is a bunch of guys named Axel… or something like that. Oh yeah, the mayor is also a pro wrestler.
A few weeks back, Capcom announced a new Monster Hunter spinoff that looked to take the series in a different direction. Well, Capcom recently announced another Monster Hunter spinoff called Monster Hunter Explore. This time, however, it’s a sequel to a previous spinoff, Monster Hunter Smart, and will be on iOS and Android. Similar to Smart, Explore will feature easier gameplay with simple controls and mechanics. Unlike Smart, this game will feature four player co-op, more social features, and a story.
Just watch the trailer. Then go download all the new goodies for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. You get Samus. You get Mega Man. You get Chun-li. It’s going to be great.
Not too long ago, Street Fighter V was announced as a PC and PS4 exclusive. However, though the game was announced already, it will be a while before we’re actually playing it. Capcom knows this and wants to get PS4 owners ready in the mean time with Street Fighter IV.
It was recently announced that Ultra Street Fighter IV will be launching May 26th for Playstation 4 and will include all characters, all stages, and all DLC in 1 package. This is definitely a good deal for those wanting to test out how the series feels on PS4, never got around to picking up the game on previous systems, or aren’t too familiar with the series in general.
Last year Capcom asked fans to vote for which Mega Man games they would like to see first on the 3DS. Well, they’re doing the same thing this year. Capcom is asking fans to vote for which GBA Mega Man game that they want to see next on the Wii U Virtual Console. There are four choices for games to vote for:
- Mega Man and Bass
- Battle Network 3 Blue and White
- Battle Network 4 Red Sun Blue Moon
- Mega Man Zero 2
The poll will end April 29th so head on over before then and cast your vote!
For the longest time, fans of Japanese games and anime had to import all of there cross over games in order to play them. It seems like just yesterday I was importing games like Jump Super Stars on the DS and going over a friends house to play Battle Stadium D.O.N. on the Gamecube. Just a few years back we were struggling to get bigger Japanese games localized on Nintendo systems. I would have never imagined that a cross over game with all of these licenses would ever get localized. However after many of the events of 2011 and 2012 we started seeing publishers acknowledge that there’s a big demand for these types of experiences in the west.
Bandai Namco was one such publisher that took the risk and brought over Project X Zone for the 3DS. Apparently that risk payed off for them because the sequel Project X Zone 2 was just announced for a Fall 2015 release in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and the Middle-East!
This game is coming, that’s confirmed. At least for Japan and it will release in 2016. It’s Monster Hunter. It’s got a really cool art style. It’s got a Rathian, a Tigrex and a fat Felyne. All of those things are okay in my book. Here’s a trailer for the game. It’s pretty much all we know at this point.
Reporting anything April 1st each year is a nightmare. Companies try to one up each other by coming up with the craziest possible things to announce. Sometimes those jokes get turned into real games. Other times you just get angry at all the fake junk coming out. Well, here’s my dream scenario for what happens tomorrow and it involves Capcom. This is fake. 150% fake. It’s absolutely untrue. Let’s get that out of the way right now, but wouldn’t it be great if it happened?
Capcom puts out a press release tomorrow. It looks something like this.
