Capcom And Microsoft Teasing New Title

By Spencer . January 21, 2010 . 11:00pm

imageCapcom is working on a new Xbox 360 game that isn’t Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV or Resident Evil 5.


A teaser image in Xbox Japan’s menu bar mentions a title premiere for Xbox 360, but doesn’t reveal the game. No clues other than “Capcom X Microsoft” text. More news is scheduled to come on Tuesday, January 26, the same day Famitsu leaks usually appear on the Internet.


Any guesses that aren’t a strategy RPG starring Master Chief, Kameo, Banjo, and various Capcom characters.

    You heard it here first, Capcom vs Microsoft. lol

  • zhemos

    I hope it’s an RPG. Would be cool if it’s a fighting game.

    Marcus Fenix vs Ryu!

  • JeremyR

    I wouldn’t think MS would have enough popular IP to pull off a vs. game. Master Chief, yeah. But the rest are not really popular in the commercial sense.

    I wonder though if they still have the rights to Tex Murphy? They bought Access for Links years and years ago…

      Nonsense. I bet you’ve seen that Minesweeper smiley more times than any other game whatsoever.

      I’m sure the smiley would beat the crap out of Ryu with his mines. All while wearing sunglasses.

      • JeremyR

        Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. I wasn’t a big Windows person until Win 95, and was that in it?

        But to answer my question, MS no longer has the rights to Tex Murphy, the original creators have it back.

        • malek86

          Yes. Yes it was. It’s been there from Win3.1 to WinXP. Only in Vista they finally took it out.

  • pedrron

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Keiji Inafune (Mega Man creator) visiting Bungie? I just hope it’s not another FPS or third person shooter. I really wish it was a beat em up or shmup, one can dream right?

    • Good guess! Now that you mention it, I remember when he said the was toying the idea of a Mega Man Legends 3 while on Dead Raising.


      • pedrron

        He said that!? I would love a MML3 but I doubt it will ever happen :( Good thing we only have to wait till the 26th for more info. Can’t wait!

        • He has said on a few occasions that he’d love to make a MML3, but he and his team are focusing on other projects and Legends isn’t on the plan to do it.
          He also said that don’t look too deep about the MML characters appearing in Tvs.C.
          I doubt we’ll see it happen soon too, but it gives some hope in the future at some point. Hey, we did see a MM9 and 10, right?

  • kupomogli

    Yeah, with the Capcom x Microsoft I’d think it was one of their RPG spinoff type series like Namco x Capcom.

  • Kris

    Hmm, I’m definitely curious. Can’t wait to see what this is!

  • Hraesvelgr

    No. Just give Lost Planet 2 now.

  • capristrider

    A new vs. game! yeah!
    Ryu VS Master Chief
    Zangief VS Bill Gates
    MegaMan VS Word Office Assistant!

  • accolade

    Killer Instinct vs Street Fighter

  • Hopefully the only thing that Microsoft has to do with this announcement is Xbox 360 related… I’d feel sick to my stomach if my favorite gaming company of all time (Capcom) had anything to do with any RARE garbage… :

    • LORDMATRIX2004

      Now don’t you go dissing the legendary developer AKA Rare.
