Project Resistance Teaser Trailer Revealed

After a short wait of wonder on what Capcom will be bringing us in Project Resistance, we are met with a teaser trailer that leaves us still wondering just what will this game exactly be.

Now, educated guesses certainly point to a survival horror game in which four players will seek to stay alive against either the AI or perhaps what looks to be a player-controlled enemy.

What we now for sure is that it is definitely coming to PlayStation 4 as shown at the end of the trailer. More news to come at Tokyo Game Show, stay tuned.

Resident Evil 2 At 4K!

Back in 1998 one of the greatest sequels ever made graced our PlayStation, Resident Evil 2. Considered one of the best in the franchise and in my opinion, it holds that crowning top spot. It brought more action the table, 4 different ways to play-through and my favourite bad guy of the bunch. The tension created by just exploring the environment was palpable.

We follow Leon Kennedy, his first night on the job as a police officer and Claire Redfield, in town to visit her brother Chris who’s been uncharacteristically quiet of late. Leon and Claire have two playable campaigns each and there are also a couple secret ones played out by some secondary characters, like corporate saboteur Ada Wong for example.

The remake has changed a few things, opting to go with an over-the-shoulder perspective, first used in Resident Evil 4 …with a more mature Leon Kennedy (its like he’s brought it back from Eastern Europe with him) and the team stated at E3 that this remake will really shake things up, not everything will be where you expect it to be. So if you’re thinking – this will be easy, I remember where everything is from the original – think again.

It’s been confirmed that this glorious remake will be optimised for Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro running in 4K if you choose, however it won’t be able to play at 60fps this way.

Resident Evil 2 remake will release on January 25th, 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One.

Devil May Cry 5 Announced

At the Microsoft E3 Media Briefing earlier today, Capcom announced Devil May Cry 5, the latest title in the series will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC sometime in Spring 2019.

Devil May Cry is known and loved for it’s fast paced, technically solid, satisfying gameplay and it’s been said that the same style is here throughout. At the end of the trailer, iconic character Dante revealed himself (not like that).

“Several years have passed in Devil May Cry 5 and the threat of demonic power, long since forgotten, has returned to menace the world once again. The demonic invasion begins with the seeds of a “demon tree” taking root in Red Grave City. The hellish incursion attracts the attention of the young demon hunter, Nero, an ally of Dante who now finds himself without his demonic arm, the source of much of his power. As Nero heads to Red Grave City in his motorhome named “Devil May Cry” with his partner Nico, he ruminates on how everything started. The loss of his demonic arm, the demonic invasion, and Dante’s unknown whereabouts. Things must be settles once and for all.”

Mega Man 11 Release Date Announced

Capcom announced today that Mega Man 11 will release on October 2nd, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. That’s right, the blue helmet warrior is back in 2018 in a new adventure blending classic side-scrolling action gameplay with a fresh new look and new features.

The press release gives a glimpse into the story, “in the events of Mega Man 11, long-time mustachioed series villain Dr. Wily is back to his mischievous ways and has had a true flash of evil genius, deciding to invest in an ambitious idea from his time at Robot University where he studied alongside Dr. Light, Mega Man’s benevolent creator. Dr. Light, who also recalls this inventive idea, decides to upgrade Mega Man with this powerful prototype known as the Double Gear system, installing it into his circuits and expanding his abilities for the greatest fight yet for everlasting peace.”

The Double Gear system in Mega Man 11 adds a unique new twist on the platforming action, offering options to enhance Mega Man’s speed and power on the fly. Speed Gear allows for the slowing of time, useful for navigating the tricky platforming sections or to avoid fast-moving enemies or obstacles.

Power Gear means being able to charge the Mega Buster to a new level, and weapon-based abilities become even more robust. Then, the Double Gear allows Mega Man to gain access to a hidden ability when at critical health to activate both gears simultaneously, unleashing maximum power and allowing for deft maneuvers in the direst situations.

Don’t forget Mega Man is already on the Switch as part of the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2, with all 10 original series titles now playable on the platform. Furthermore, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 is coming this July 24th, 2018 for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
