Today at PAX East, Capcom announced DuckTakes Remastered!
DuckTales Remastered has seen the development team take the levels and layout from the original 1989 release as a foundation before expanding upon them to significantly enhance the gameplay experience but where this update truly impresses is its graphics and sound. All of the visuals from the 8-bit game have been beautifully re-created as hand-drawn and animated sprites, across a backdrop of luscious, re-envisioned level backgrounds. Furthermore, original Disney Character Voices talent, including some from the cartoon TV series, bring in-game characters to life with charm and wit, while the classic melodies of the original soundtrack are given a modern twist.
Further additions to the original include an all new tutorial level where players can get familiar with the iconic pogo jump and cane swing; while Scrooge McDuck’s Museum allows players to track all their stats and compare their progress with others via global leaderboards.
DuckTales Remastered will arrive digitally on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U this summer.
Back in November, we heard rumblings that a console version of Resident Evil: Relvations might be on its way. Today, Capcom officially announced that Resident Evil: Revelations will arrive on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC on May 21st for North America and the 24th for Europe. Prior to previous thoughts that this may be a digital only title, Revelations will be available both at retail and digitally on all platforms. The game will be available digitally for PS3 and PC on May 21st with Xbox and Wii U to follow.
The console version will feature a new enemy, an extra level of difficulty and improvements to Raid Mode including new weapons, skill sets and the option to play as Hunk in addition to other characters from the series. The game will be taking advantage of ResidentEvil.net- the online community that launched with Resident Evil 6 that gives players access to special events as well as opportunities to unlock game content.
We’re excited to see this title coming to consoles but have to wonder if its $49.99 price tag will put off players of the 3DS version from re-buying this title. As for those that haven’t played Revelations, it’s definitely the best Resident Evil game to come out of Capcom in the past year.
Today, Resident Evil 6 received the title update that was announced back in October.
Also announced was a second title update which will arrive on January 22nd. It will provide selectable criteria for Agent Hunt Mode including stage and region selection. QTE assist will also be expanded with an option to use it on any difficulty instead of just the Amateur difficulty.
Also announced today were details regarding the PC version of Resident Evil 6. The PC version will arrive on Steam March 22nd. The game will take full advantage of Steam including cloud saving and Steam achievements. You can check out the minimum and recommended specs for the PC version after the jump.
Resident Evil Revelations (or Revelaitons for those that purchased it early enough) might be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
A rating on a Korean rating board website lists the title as being available on the above platforms. Revelations was released back in February for the Nintendo 3DS.
The setting for the game takes place between RE4 and RE5 and was a nice return to the roots of the series, putting players in dark environments with limited ammo and an occasional scare. The last two Resident Evil titles to hit consoles, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Resident Evil 6, weren’t very well received. Perhaps Capcom is trying to show people they can still make a solid entry in the series by making Revelations it more widely available.
Capcom has announced that a title update will be arriving for Resident Evil 6 in mid-December.
The update will include changes to the camera so that players can have a greater field of view (a comparison can be below) as well as new subtitle options that will allow players to use English audio can be combined with subtitles in an alternative language.
Other additions which were previously discovered in the games’ files include the ‘No Hope’ difficulty as well as the addition of a new character who is being included as a co-op partner for Ada Wong’s campaign, which will be available from the beginning of the game after the update whereas before you had to unlock it by completing the other campaigns.
Thanks to the wonderful people on the internet, we’ve found out that Resident Evil 6 has… on disc DLC! YouTuber FluffyQuack has found, through modding, new Mercenaries costumes (notably the “retro” costumes as the others shown are unlockable in game or via RE.net) , new character taunts, and a brand new “No Hope” difficulty level along with what looks to be a new playable character.
A Capcom spokesperson told Eurogamer “We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months and while virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc,”
Resident Evil 6 was announced to the world with Leon S. Kennedy killing a zombified President of the United States. From that moment, we knew that the next entry in the series wasn’t going to hold anything back… or at least that’s what we assumed.
Capcom’s latest installment to the Resident Evil franchise was created by massive team. It spans four separate campaigns that include characters from throughout the series including government agent Leon S. Kennedy, BSAA Captain Chris Redfield, an older Sherry Birkin and Ada Wong. These characters get partnered up with newcomers Helena Harper, Piers Nivans and Jake Muller. Leading up to the game’s release, the idea of having different campaigns sounded like it would offer something for fans of the older and more recent entries to the series.
Was this one of the biggest games of 2012? Or was this one of its biggest disappointments? Read on for our full review!
I almost wet myself when I saw this image. It pretty much confirms a new Darkstalkers. Will it be it’s own title, or will it be an HD: Remix, like the treatment 3rd Strike is getting? (GGPO, Achievements, DLC, the works.)
Unfortunately, it was later clarified as being a teaser. Ono asked fans to hold up cash to prove to Capcom that the series still had life. That’s when the image popped up on the projector. Still… Doesn’t this mean that something is going to happen?
Either way, vanilla Vampire Savior would do well with the HD: Remix treatment, so here’s to wishful thinking! I truly doubt Capcom would let this fly, especially at San Diego Comic Con, without there actually being meat behind it. Let’s file this one under “Hopeful Confirmation“.
