Turn off the Lights

Capcom’s PAX East Announcements

Capcom hosted a panel at PAX East earlier today announcing a slew of new games and updates for both fans of their older and newer games. There were some rumors and speculation throughout the week whether or not a new Strider game would be announced. It turns out it was not the case, but Capcom had another surprise up their sleeve.

First, Capcom announced that another update to Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition is in the works as they just started development. This will be the fifth update in the Street Fighter IV series as this new one will feature balance changes to the existing cast of characters. They haven't said if new characters would be released, but I won't be surprised if some are announced on a later date. Fans of the series and tournament players are excited on the potential changes this update may bring to one of the best fighting games this console generation. Capcom Unity is letting fans input their ideas of what they want buffed or nerfed in the next few weeks.

Despite showing the latest with their upcoming lineup of games such as the console versions of Resident Evil: Revelations, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, and Remember Me, Capcom had two new downloadable games to show off that are planned to be released this summer on Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and the Wii U eShop.

First up is Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, a downloadable package featuring the arcade hits Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and its sequel Shadow over Mystara. Iron Galaxy is developing this $15 (1200 Microsoft Points) bundle which includes updated graphics, drop in/drop out online co-op up to four players, the in-game achievements seen in past Iron Galaxy titles such as Darkstalkers Resurrection and Marvel vs. Capcom Origins, and more.

It is also nice to see Capcom finally releasing some of their upcoming downloadable games on the Wii U's eShop just like WiiWare with Mega Man 9 and 10, but that Dungeons & Dragons is not the only classic franchise they are bringing back this summer.

Capcom, Disney, and WayFoward (Contra 4, Double Dragon Neon) are partnering up to bring back the NES classic DuckTales in HD form with DuckTales Remastered. That's right, the infamous theme song from the cartoon and Scrooge McDuck are back for a new generation of players, but also those who loved the NES game back in the day. This will be the same NES game, but with some remixed sections, a modernized conrol scheme, remixed soundtrack, and new animations of the characters done by Disney themselves. Even the voice cast from the cartoon are returning to reprise their roles, especially Alan Young as Scrooge. DuckTales Remastered comes out this summer for Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, and Wii U's eShop for $15 (1200 Microsoft Points).
