Capcom To Announce Four New Games At TGS?

By Ishaan . September 13, 2010 . 4:05am

Capcom, as you might have noticed, are all over Twitter. They maintain separate feeds for Capcom Unity, Capcom Europe and now have a separate Tokyo Game Show account dedicated to covering TGS as well. And of course, there’s Ono-san, who I’m considering for his very own tag.


With all those Twitter feeds, you’d think there’d be some sort of build up to an event as prominent as TGS. Perhaps a tease or two to get the Internet forums talking and the media scrambling for their keyboards. Sadly, while Capcom’s TGS account has been very active this past week, it has yet to divulge any information one would consider particularly juicy.


Enter Capcom Europe, who seem more than willing to rectify the situation. This little post popped up on their feed a while ago:


Righto. That sounds like an educated guess. Now, to anyone starting to feel that little tinge of excitement — yes, we can relate — keep in mind, this could merely be a PR disaster in the form of a badly-worded Tweet that wasn’t meant to be interpreted as a tease.


But if it isn’t…4 new games. And even if Ace Attorney Investigations 2 counts as one of them, 3 new games is still pretty good!

  • malek86

    MHF3 for Europe please.

  • Shuryou

    Megaman Legends 3, Megaman Legends 3, Megaman Legends 3 and Megaman Legends 3. Work with me here, Capcom!

    • goronyan

      what you said x 100 :D

    • Wait until 2018 already, since Megaman 9 was released in 2008, 10 years after Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, back in 1998.

  • RE6 better be announced and a reboot of the entire series. Isnt Capcom collaborating with CyberConnect2?

    • shion16

      CC2 is working with level 5.

  • BoF VI
    Rockman Rockman 2
    Last Ranker for USA
    Rockman Dash 3

    …I’m marching almost exactly out of lockstep with everyone else, I know. :’>

    • I forgot Last Ranker…is Fate/Extra Capcom, but would they really have USA/Europe specific announcements at TGS?

      • Yeah, they do sometimes. Capcom announced Sengoku Basara 3 and Ghost Trick for NA/EU at TGS last year.

    • MrRobbyM

      oh god yes!!

    • thebanditking

      be careful what you wish for, Inafune already said it would have a western touch and if the previous rumor of Ninja Theory doing DMC5 turns out to be true, you (and me) might not like the results

  • Breath of Fire 6 or Power Stone or Darkstalkers or Capcom are dead to me :p

    • thebanditking

      I would love to see Breath of Fire return but Capcom is not really an RPG friendly company anymore. As for the other two I would also like to see new games in those series but with MvsC3 coming and SFXTekken I don’t think you will hear about anymore fighters for a while, as they don’t want to damage the hype for the announced games.

      • We can all thank the idiotic WRPG VS JRPG false argument for Breath of Fire’s docking, alongisde BoF: Dragon Quarter’s low sales.

        Also, Capcom is going back to its fighting game roots, which explains the lack of JRPGs on their side.

        As for my 4 predictions in TGS 2010:

        –Tatsunoko VS Capcom 2: Return of Super Heroes
        –potential Capcom participation in #SuperRobotWars #SRW
        –Megaman Legends 3 for 2018
        –Capcom VS SNK 3 for the Wii, in Capcom’s retaliation to’s April Fools’ prank

  • I’m not even going to get excited for this. Last time I was excited for a Capcom announcement, it turned out to be Street Fighter x Tekken.

    • raymk

      Yeah i wasn’t excited but its a game that does make you wonder how things will turn out. I for one will be giving it a try.

  • DarkWaterClone

    I am going to guess one will be the Resident Evil game for the PSP. Not much has been said about the game. So I could see Capcom saying it is a new game.

  • puchinri

    New Breath of Fire, Darkstalkers. And Devil May Cry 5 with Vergil. I don’t care if it makes sense to throw him in or not.

  • Aiddon

    DMC5 might be one of them; a month or two ago Nero’s actor said he was headed to Japan for something so it might have been mocap work. Just keep the West away from it.

  • kupomogli

    Breath of Fire 6Monster Hunter for PS3 with P2PMega Man Legends 3Resident Evil Outbreak 1 and 2 Remake PS360 with P2P(after RE2 these are my favorites.)

  • neo_firenze

    Resident Evil 6 seems likely – there has been a lot of chatter about it lately. Something Monster Hunter related, something Sengoku Basara related, or DMC5 (though I personally would be more interested in a new Onimusha) wouldn’t be shockers. PSP/3DS games also wouldn’t be a huge surprise. Megaman Legends 3 is a possibility that we’ve seen at least some hints toward.

    As for what I don’t think it will be: I expect Resident Evil PSP to go the way of Devil May Cry PSP… Announced, then silence for a long time, then cancellation. Unfortunately, I doubt there will be Vampire series game announced now. It’s just too early, and the game will have to wait in line behind MvC3 and SFvT (and Third Strike PSN/XBLA). Breath of Fire? Hahahahahahaha. That WOULD be shocking to see.

  • Zackuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

  • jarrodand

    Well, Ninja Theory’s DMC5 is likely to be one. Dunno about the others, but I’m still holding out hope for MM Legends 3 or (a 16-bit styled downloadable) MMX9. Monster Hunter 3G would be nice, but with the way Wii 3rd party support has gone in the past year, I’m not holding my breath…

    I’d also LOVE DarkStalkers 4, but I think Ono doing SFxT kinda put the kabosh on that possibility in the foreseeable future. :(

  • landlock

    Resident Evil 6
    New Onimusha
    Remake of Black Tiger.

    • Kibbitz

      Since you mentioned remakes…

      2(.5)D Remake/sequel to Shadow over Mystara.
      New Strider.
      2(.5)D sequel to Final Fight.
      2(.5)D sequel to Aliens vs Predator.

  • DlanorKnox

    I would literally cry with happiness if a new Power Stone was announced for the PS3.

  • Oh, I forgot to mention these:

    Second prediction set:

    –Onimusha 5
    –Darkstalkers 4
    –Megaman X9
    –Megaman ZX 3

  • Souji Tendou

    I’ll die as happy panda if it was Breath of Fire VI.

  • Aside from all the great games mentioned ALL I NEED IN MY LIFE IS RIVAL SCHOOLS!!!
