Lost Planet spinoff coming soon
By way of Famitsu comes word of EX Troopers, a 3DS and PS3 spinoff to Lost Planet. The game will take place on a school academy and feature the fight between pirates and Akrid aliens.
Capcom hopes gamers will see it as a new title rather than a spinoff. It will have an anime look to it, and is being produced by Shintaro Kojima, a Monster Hunter veteran.
Development on the game is three-fifths done. No release date is known yet, though it will be present in playable form at a Capcom event next month in Japan.
In related news, Lost Planet 3 is due out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 early next year.
No playable Capcom games for Nintendo at E3
This E3 is going to be very boring for Capcom fans. The publisher has stated that it won’t have any games for Nintendo’s systems playable at the event.
There have been rumors of a new Resident Evil 3DS game for some time now. Many have speculated over the localization of Monster Hunter Tri G being unveiled at E3. Although the announcement doesn’t rule them out, these games, if they do appear, won’t be playable in any form.
As for Nintendo, it is expected to fully unveil the Wii U, and maintain a strong presence for 3DS. Playable games are of course expected.
Street Fighter X Tekken out today on PC, is a console port
Starting today, PC gamers can get in on the fun that is Street Fighter X Tekken, which was released almost two months ago on consoles. It’s the same as its console brethren, besides support for different resolutions, keyboards, benchmark tool, and support for NVIDIA 3D Vision.
This post on Capcom Unity details the PC version, noting that it doesn’t make any use of special DirectX 10 or 11 upgrades. It also lists the minimum and recommended specs.
The game is available in retail throughout Europe and Asia, but not in North America. You will have to get it from your digital distributor of choice.
Resident Evil: Downfall rumored for 3DS
VG247 reports that a new Resident Evil game for 3DS is in the works, though it is rumored at the moment. They cite another site, which had the game pegged as Degeneration-Damnation-Downfall 3D.
It should be pointed out that the subtitles are for movies available on the game cartridge, while the last one – Downfall – could be the new game. It’s supposed to take place somewhere between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, and is said to feature Claire Redfield as she sees the “downfall of humanity”.
The site expects Capcom to announce the title at E3.
Ace Attorney 5 announced
Capcom unveiled the fifth Ace Attorney game today at a special event celebrating the 10th anniversary of the series in Japan.
No details are known at the moment; the company hasn’t made any official announcements for other regions yet. Only the game’s logo was revealed through a surprise announcement at the aforementioned event.
Asura’s Wrath director addresses God of War similarity, talks about game’s design
Having seen this epic trailer for Asura’s Wrath, it’s easy to conclude that the game is going to kick as much ass as is humanly possible. There’s simply no doubt about it. But there’s one problem: we don’t know anything about the game.
This post on PlayStation Blog sheds some new light on the title, asking director Seiji Shimoda a few brief questions before revealing the title is due out next year.
Interestingly, the first question asked is about the game’s similarity to the God of War series, which Shimoda agrees and disagrees to at the same time, noting that “superficially, there are some resemblances but we’re hoping that… you’re going [to] feel that it’s something completely different.”
Referring to the epic boss fight shown in the trailer, he notes that it is “actually one of the weaker bosses” and that other boss fights are not all going to be on this scale. It may be grander, but doesn’t mean the bosses will be as big. Shimoda also talks about the leveling up nature of action games, pointing out that Asura’s Wrath is going to break the trend. He concedes, however, stating that there will be some points where the titular character can indeed power up.
Hit up the post for more details. The game is due out sometime next year on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The Aussies finally get a break! The country’s ratings board, the OFLC, has classified Dead Rising 2 for release with an MA15 rating. The good news? It will be released uncut and unedited. The game is due out at the end of September on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Finally, a demo for Puzzle Agent can be found puzzling its way around the Internet. The 182MB download can be found on FileShack, AtomicGamer and the game’s official website.
