By Spencer . March 4, 2009 . 3:38am

The Japanese page says Resident Evil 5 or as it’s known in Japan Biohazard 5 will have content downloads while the US counterpart lists no such feature. Don’t worry Japan isn’t getting special downloadable crossover content with zombie Zangief.   The discrepancy appears to be from the different Resident Evil 5 Limited Edition packages. […]

What kind? Don’t know yet, but the product page on Xbox Japan confirms Resident Evil 5 will have some kind of downloadable content. Perhaps, downloadable tanks or Jeeps for the zombies not riding dirtbikes.   The product page also sprinkles a few other details such as system link only works with 2 players, not 2-16 […]

By Spencer . January 6, 2009 . 6:47am

While aesthetically less impressive than Sega’s Yakuza 3 PS3, the Star Ocean 4 Xbox 360 package makes up for it by including lots of goodies.

Capcom Crams Figures And Anime Inside Street Fighter IV Collector’s Edition

By Spencer . December 5, 2008 . 10:22am

When publishers say “Collector’s Edition” they usually mean a metal case, some kind of special downloadable content, and a soundtrack CD. Capcom is raising our expectations of what a Collector’s Edition can be today with their Street Fighter IV Collector’s Edition. This package contains two figures one of fan favorite Ryu and one of newcomer […]

How To Get Access To Japan’s Resident Evil 5 Demo (Update: New Method)

By Spencer . December 5, 2008 . 1:42am

The Biohazard… ahem… Resident Evil 5 demo went live on Japan’s Xbox Live Marketplace. I downloaded it and it’s entirely in English. In fact, the title screen shows up with Resident Evil 5 unless you have your console’s language set in Japanese. So, there really isn’t anything stopping people from playing it except for one […]

Resident Evil 2 Wii-make rumor poster also “confirms” Wild Arms 6th and Shadow Hearts 3

By Spencer . August 28, 2008 . 3:32pm

It’s a lazy summer day and gamers in the USA are congregating to Washington for PAX. In the absence of news discussion has sparked from a 2chan post about a Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition-like remake for Resident Evil 2. Sure, Capcom has its fair share of Wii ports which makes the news superficially believable, […]

Control Resident Evil 0 with the nunchuck, remote, and classic controller

By Spencer . June 20, 2008 . 12:31pm

We’re only weeks away until Resident Evil 0 is re-released on the Wii and we still don’t know much about it. Well, there isn’t much to know about. Capcom isn’t adding any new content to Biohazard 0, but it has a new control scheme. Motion control? Maybe not. Nintendo’s product page doesn’t mention it.   […]

Resident Evil infects pachislot parlors

By Spencer . May 22, 2008 . 11:27am

Part of Capcom’s fiscal year 2009 strategy involves Pachislot, namely licensing their franchises for Pachislot use. We saw a Devil May Cry 3 pachislot machine last year and this year Capcom plans to expand into the business with “several pachinko/pachislo machine models.”   The four reel, Biohazard pachislot machine pictured on the right is one […]

Japan’s PlayStation store fills up with (more) quality PlayStation classics

By Spencer . December 26, 2007 . 11:24am

If getting a retro PsOne game every few months wasn’t bad enough this excellent list of games makes the void of PsOne classics on the US store worse. The second burst update for the Japanese PlayStation store includes hits like Biohazard 2 (Resident Evil 2), Baroque and a personal favorite, Intelligent Qube. I love the […]

Surprise! Japan wants Halo 3 too

By Spencer . June 5, 2007 . 8:44am

Some people presume that Japan doesn’t like Western games, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Grand Theft Auto sold fairly well and Ratchet & Clank has always been a hit even though the box art has cartoony characters. Similar to how there is a growing niche market for strategy RPGs in North America, a first […]

The Resident Evil iPod

By Spencer . May 31, 2007 . 6:00am

  Capcom has released lots of Resident Evil swag over the years, but this iPod nano with an engraved S.T.A.R.S. logo has to be one of the rarest. The only way to get this iPod was to use a JCB card in Japan and spend more than 100,000 yen ($822) in three months. Then you […]
