From Dead Rising 2: Off The Record To Asura's Wrath, A Capcom Blow-Out

Two new Resident Evils. A big new dragon game. The next Street Fighter twist. A Dead Rising remake. And one Hindu-inspired epic with an amazing boss battle.

Those were the big games of Captivate 2011, a showcase recently held in Miami for many of the biggest Capcom games coming out in the next year.

I went to Captivate 2011, and over the next few days will be sharing as much as I can with you about all these games: from screenshots and trailers to developer interviews and hands-on impressions, plus a surprise story or two (one will involve a real life shark - promise!).

This round-up of Captivate coverage will be updated throughout the week. For now, here's our first day of coverage:

Comments

    I for one am surprised how much support Capcom is showing for PC with these titles.

      I always found it mildly amusing that the only PC Gaming Alliance member that seemed to actually be doing something to promote and/or support PC gaming was the primarily console-styled game developer. I've definitely enjoyed and appreciated some of their porting efforts in recent years (GFWL-use aside).

    About this Dead Rising 2 remake, is it really just the same game with Frank instead of Chuck or will there be more to it than that?
