Play Capcom Fighting Collection Now!

Jun 24, 2022 // Andy Wong

Lions and vampires and robots, OH MY! Capcom Fighting Collection is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam. Relive 10 arcade classics from Darkstalkers, Cyberbots, Red Earth, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, and more.

Miss the good ‘ole days of stacking quarters at the arcade? Have a Darkstalkers obsession you want to share with fellow fans? Yeah, we do, too. Fortunately for us all, Capcom Fighting Collection is here to save the day – complete with 10 different fighting games that will transport players back to the arcades of the 90s like no other game collection can!

Before we tell you more about Capcom Fighting Collection, we have an entire week of streamers from our Capcom Creators going live from June 27 – July 1 from 11AM-5PM PT. We’ll be hosting them on our official Twitch page, but also tune in on each Creator’s channels! https://www.twitch.tv/capcomusa

Here’s a quick tour of all the titles waiting to take players back to the heyday of arcades.

All 5 DarkstalkersIt’s spooky, it’s scary, it’s every game in the Darkstalkers series all in one haunting collection for the first time ever outside of Japan. From Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors (1994) to Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire (1997), players can select fan-favorite characters such as the charming Morrigan and exuberant Felicia, or take a stab at more specialized characters like the deadly Huitzil and aquatic Rikuo. There’s no need to wait for a full moon to play Darkstalkers when you can play them now. (Note: Vampire Hunter 2 – Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Vampire Savior 2 – The Lord of Vampire are only available in Japanese).

Red Earth A unique fighting game with an RPG-like system is making its debut outside of arcades. Red Earth, also known as War-Zard in Japan, has fantasy-inspired characters like the witch Tessa and the lion-headed king Leo. Thou can select either the single-player Quest Mode or the two-player Versus Mode depending on thine preferences. Dost thou have what it takes to save the kingdom of Greedia?

Cyberbots: Fullmetal MadnessMany Capcom fans might know Jin Saotome, but few have played the game he hails from. Cyberbots is another unique fighting game where players select the pilot along with the Variant Armor. While the pilot controls the story, the Variant Armor controls the move-set. Players looking for massive space battles with mechas need not look any further than Cyberbots.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo – Puzzle fans, unite! Characters from Darkstalkers, Cyberbots, and Street Fighter go head-to-head in this puzzle game where players must match blocks of the same color in order deal blows to their opponent or to simply survive. Be wary of the glorious diamond piece, which can end the game in one fell swoop.

Hyper Street Fighter II Containing all five versions of Street Fighter II – making it a collection within a collection – Hyper Street Fighter II is an ode to the classic era of the series that made Street Fighter a household name.

Super Gem Fighter Mini MixFeaturing “chibi” designs for characters from Darkstalkers, Street Fighter, and even Red Earth, this chaotic – and very cute – fighting game is chock-full of power-up gems, elemental orbs, and treasure chests that can turn the tide of any match.

You know we couldn’t just put 10 awesome games together and call it a day. Capcom Fighting Collection alsobrings new modes, new features, and updated settings to deliver a modern feel to these retro classics.

  • Online Play for All Games – That’s right! All 10 games have online play where players can select Casual Match, Ranked Match, or Custom Match to prove they aren’t just the best in their local arcade. Additionally, Spectator Mode is available so you can sit back and enjoy watching your friends duke it out.
  • Training Mode – Practice combos, execute special moves, or just fiddle around with your favorite characters with no time bank. Training Mode is available for all titles except Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.
  • Fighter Awards – Each game comes with unique Challenges players can complete to really test their mettle.
  • Display Filters – Get creative with multiple filters to change how the games are displayed.
  • Quick Save – Made a mistake in Arcade Mode you wish you could take back? With the new Quick Save, players can start right where they left off instead of having to start all the way at the beginning.
  • Museum and BGM Player – Over 500 pieces of art and 400 music tracks for players to peruse with all the time in the world!

Finally, Capcom Fighting Collection will also join forces with Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection to form the unbeatable Capcom Fighting Bundle, which includes a total of 22 games in one! Get the bundle for MSRP $59.99.

Dragon’s Dogma II Prepares to Begin the Cycle Anew

Jun 16, 2022 // Kellen Haney

Well met, brave Arisen.

A part of today’s “10 Years of Dragon’s Dogma” Developer Video, director Hideaki Itsuno officially announced a title that many of you have been waiting for: Dragon’s Dogma II is now in development!

In case you missed it, watch the video above for the full message, or read our quick recap below!

Mr. Itsuno recalls how his earliest experiences with high fantasy were thanks to classic pen-and-paper role playing games. This resulted in his love of RPGs as a whole, something that he would carry with him throughout his time working on arcade titles for Capcom throughout the 90’s. By 2000, Mr. Itsuno began to build out his own fantasy world, one that would eventually become what we now know as Dragon’s Dogma.

Touching on how the team built out the land of Gransys, the reason behind the game’s unique Pawn System, and the titles he worked on in between his initial concept for Dragon’s Dogma and the game’s release, we encourage Arisen of all types to enjoy Mr. Itsuno’s reflections on his time developing the original game and the thrill of the surprise announcement of Dragon’s Dogma II.

To celebrate, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is also be on sale on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam, making it the perfect time to explore the world of Gransys and prepare yourself for what lies ahead. They’re masteworks, all – you can’t go wrong.

While the team is hard at work on Dragon’s Dogma II, follow the Dragon’s Dogma Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts for all the latest news, activities, and celebrations of this momentous anniversary for Dragon’s Dogma!


Resident Evil, Exoprimal, Monster Hunter, and More Take Center Stage in the Capcom Showcase

Jun 13, 2022 // Joseph Bustos

Diving Deep into the Details.

We shared a host of news and announcements from a wide range of upcoming Capcom games in today’s Capcom Showcase!

Check out a recording of the full broadcast for yourself below, or read on for the full summary of everything we showed.

Resident Evil Has a Selection of Good Things on the Way, Stranger

Last year, we announced DLC for Resident Evil Village, and now we’re excited to finally share a first glimpse. The new DLC, titled the Winters’ Expansion arrives on October 28, 2022 on all available platforms, with Resident Evil Village Gold Edition releasing at the same time.

Set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village, Shadows of Rose is a new tale that follows Rose Winters, the daughter of main protagonist Ethan, as she struggles with her terrifying powers. You’ll explore and survive a warped and mysterious realm inside the consciousness of the Megamycete in search of a cure.

This new story content isn’t all the Winters’ Expansion has in store. TheMercenaries Additional Orders is an update to the classic arcade action mode bringing new stages and new playable characters – Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and yes, Lady Dimitrescu herself!

For those of you looking to experience Ethan’s harrowing journey from another viewpoint, you’re in luck. A new Third-Person Mode for Resident Evil Village is being added to the main campaign, letting you play the entire journey in a different way.

All of this content will be included in Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, a bundle of Winters’ Expansion and the main game, which launches alongside the DLC on October 28, 2022. Resident Evil Re:Verse, an online multiplayer experience included with new purchases of Resident Evil Village, will also go live on the same date.

We also showed an extended look at the newly announcedResident Evil 4. Director Yasuhiro Ampo and Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi shared their vision for this modern reimagining of the 2005 classic. The development team is aiming to dial up the original game’s feeling of loneliness and the fear of enemies blinded by zealotry. Resident Evil 4 launches next year on March 24, 2023.  

Oh, and one more thing. Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7 biohazard reanimate today on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with 4K resolution, ray tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio. DualSense™ haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support is also available on PlayStation 5. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players can upgrade at no additional cost via the digital upgrade program and Smart Delivery. These upgrades will also be available today on PC via a patch.

An Early Dinosaur Outbreak on the Horizon in Exoprimal!

Your first opportunity to repel swarms of dinosaurs in Exoprimal arrives next month. Register today for a chance to participate in the Closed Network Test on Steam for PC this July, and be among the first Exofighters to try this team-based action game before it deploys in 2023.

ExoprimalDirector Takuro Hiraoka shared a briefing on the dynamic main game mode, Dino Survival. In this multiplayer experience, two squads of five Exofighters race to complete orders assigned by Leviathan, the sinister artificial intelligence who guides players through missions. Teams must complete missions before their rivals to win, and continue searching for a way to escape Leviathan’s deadly games.

The new trailer teased a selection of objectives that make up Dino Survival, including VTOL Defense, where squads defend downed aircraft from dinosaur onslaughts, and Omega Charge, which introduces a massive hammer that Exofighters will wield to obliterate targets.

We also unveiled two new Assault class Exosuits that are absolutely armed to the teeth. Barrage, a burning bombardier, and the rail gun-wielding sniper Vigilant. These two join a growing armory of futuristic suits that teams can swap between on-the-fly to coordinate and overcome any challenge.

While many situations will put you against hordes of dinosaurs, there are others where you’ll clash directly with opposing squads, and even some where rival teams must band together to take-down common foes, like the twisted Neo Tyrannosaurus.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Enters a New Frontier

Monster Hunter series Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto joined the Capcom Showcase for an exciting new look at Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. We shared a new trailer that featured the revitalization of the Jungle area from the second generation of Monster Hunter games, the introduction of Espinas the Thorn Wyvern from Monster Hunter Frontier, and the return of the flagship beast from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Gore Magala.

We’re also happy to announce that a free demo for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will emerge shortly after 7pm PDT tomorrow, June 14, 2022, for Nintendo Switch and Steam. Digital pre-orders are now available on both platforms and come packed with a bonus Palamute and Palico layered armor set.

Looking to track down the next content update beyond the June 30, 2022 launch? Get ready for Lucent Nargacuga, the Moon Swift Wyvern, returning in August with the iconic Forlorn Arena. Beyond that, more content is planned for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak this fall, winter, and into next year.

Check out the Monster Hunter recap blog to get the full breakdown of all of the exciting Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak announcements.

More on the Way!

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since the original Dragon’s Dogma released? To celebrate, Director Hideaki Itsuno joined the Capcom Showcase to thank fans for their support. Look out for a dedicated video message from the development team later this week on the Dragon’s Dogma YouTube channel on June 16, 2022 at 3pm PDT.

Street Fighter 6, Capcom Fighting Collection, and Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium also made appearances at the Capcom Showcase. Street Fighter 6 brings the next evolution of Capcom’s beloved fighting game franchise in 2023, with striking new visuals, battle mechanics, control options, characters, in-game commentary features, and a groundbreaking story mode. Catch up on all of the reveals for the game by following the Street Fighter social media channels.

That’s all for now, but we hope today’s news got you excited for what’s coming from Capcom. Keep an eye on our social channels for the latest news from each of the games above, and we look forward to sharing more updates with everyone in the future.


Exoprimal Suits Up With a Closed Network Test and New Info from Capcom Showcase

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak – Capcom Showcase June 13, 2022 Recap

Jun 13, 2022 // Joseph Bustos

Illuminating the trail ahead.

A new locale, new monsters, a free demo, and a look ahead at the future of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak were revealed in today’s Capcom Showcase.

We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s get to it! First up, here’s our latest trailer.

The Jungle area from the second generation of Monster Hunter games swings into the hunt! Now in Sunbreak, you’ll be able to venture your way through the region’s scenic sandy shoreline, all the way to the lush and dense greenery that challenging monsters call home.  

Exciting hunts await you in the Jungle, featuring veteran monsters and fresh faces. Speaking of monsters…

The Ultimate Frontier

We’ve already revealed a few monsters coming in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, but of course there’s still plenty more to share. How about we start with a highly requested (and VERY exciting) fan favorite?

Say hello to the flagship monster from Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Gore Magala! There’s a lot of you experienced hunters out there who have been asking for Gore Magala’s return, so hopefully this reveal had you on the edge of your seat. This sinister six-limbed blind wyvern brings its signature Frenzy Virus to the battle, marked by the black and purple mist it scatters.

Espinas, the Thorn Wyvern, makes its grand return to the series. For many this might be your first introduction to Espinas since it’s only appeared in Monster Hunter Frontier. Its signature venomous pink horn at the front of its head poses a serious threat. And if that wasn’t enough, Espinas can unleash powerful toxic fireballs. It may look threatening at a glance, but this monster loves getting its beauty sleep and hitting snooze – absorbing a few attacks before finally waking up.  

Is that some kind of cave demon? Nope! Turns out, Shogun Ceanataur isn’t the only carapaceon coming to Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. Today we revealed a small look at the returning Daimyo Hermitaur. Your attacks will be useless when it uses its massive claws to form a tough shield. Those claws aren’t just for defense, either – they could rip a hunter apart! Concentrate, and focus on your hunting techniques with this one…

Eagle eyed hunters might have had suspicions that a new Rakna-Kadaki subspecies was discovered. We’re excited to finally share the details. Meet Pyre Rakna-Kadaki, a fiery subspecies that turns up the heat with flame infused silk strands and, of course, superheated Rachnoid.   

The Hunt Starts Now!

Your chance to go hands-on with Sunbreak is almost here. The demo for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak releases on both Nintendo Switch and Steam on June 14 shortly following 7 p.m. PDT. Explore the new Jungle region, go toe-to-toe with a few Sunbreak monsters, and try out new hunting actions.

If you’re new to Monster Hunter Rise or just looking to clear out your hunting cobwebs, the beginner hunt against a Great Izuchi and the intermediate hunt facing off against a Tetranadon are great entry points to learn (or remember) the basics. There’s also a few training quests to get you familiar with the game’s mechanics, including the new Switch Skill Swap.

Want to step things up a notch? With the expert difficulty, you’ll be challenged with slaying the electrifying Astalos, one of the new monsters in Sunbreak.

It wouldn’t be a Monster Hunter demo without a big challenge. Try battling Sunbreak’s flagship monster Malzeno in a super tough advanced quest! Remember, this hunt is a special challenge tuned just for the demo, and has a shorter time limit than what you might experience when the full game comes out on June 30. That said, it’s a great way to test your skills and square off against this powerful new monster.

A Sneak Peek at the Future…

Thought we were all done? Not quite. Free title updates for Sunbreak are on the way!

A tower illuminated by moonlight marks the backdrop for a returning locale: Forlorn Arena. Also appearing seemingly out of thin air is the azure scaled Lucent Nargacuga. We’ll have much more to share about the August update in the future, but for now we’ll keep things shrouded in a bit of mystery.

The August update is just the first free title update coming to Sunbreak. There’s more on the way in 2022 and beyond. Take a look at the update roadmap for a preview of what’s to come.

That wraps it up for the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak updates featured in the Capcom Showcase. We hope you enjoy the demo and you’re even more hyped for launch on June 30. As always, follow the official @MonsterHunter social channels for more updates to come in the future. Happy hunting!

That’s all we’ve got for now, but keep an eye out on the Capcom USA Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for more news as it drops!


Guile Returns in Street Fighter 6 Along with His Sonic Swagger!

Jun 09, 2022 // Andy Wong

America’s hero is back! As revealed at Summer Game Fest 2022, Guile returns in Street Fighter 6 when it launches in 2023 – and brings his endless swagger with him. As a US Air Force pilot who fights for his country, Guile succeeded in dismantling Shadaloo and avenged his friend Charlie Nash. Although he enjoys living the family-man life, a new mission now awaits.

Guile’s move set in Street Fighter 6 combines his signature moves with fresh additions. He is one powerhouse of a character who retains his ability to keep opponents at a distance. Splatters of green and yellow paint cover the stage when Guile utilizes the Drive System, harkening to the colors of his classic look.

Guile’s Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick (Flash Kick) are set to make their triumphant return in Street Fighter 6. What would Guile be without them, right? Sonic Boom is Guile’s main projectile ability and travels across the stage while Somersault Kick is an instant upwards move that can protect from airborne attacks.

Guile’s Sonic Blade from Street Fighter V returns as a Special Move rather than a V-Skill and sees him placing a stationary aerial slash in front of him. Sonic Blade can then be turned into a two-hit projectile if combined with Sonic Boom.

Let’s go over all three of Guile’s Super Arts, which reflects his journey as one of the most well-known World Warriors!

Sonic Hurricane (1 Stock) – Introduced in Street Fighter Alpha 3, Guile fires a massive aerial slash directly ahead. If used with a Heavy Punch, the aerial slash fires diagonally upwards as a good anti-air option. An extremely versatile move that can be used in combos, to counter projectiles, or as a way to turn the tables when being pressured.

Solid Puncher (2 Stocks) – Introduced in Street Fighter V as Guile’s V-Trigger I, Solid Puncher is now a Super Art. Guile envelops both arms in aerial slashes and enables the use of Sonic Break, where a flurry of small Sonic Boom projectiles can be unleashed simply by pressing the punch buttons.

Crossfire Somersault (3 Stocks) – A brand new Super Art, Guile puffs his chest and fires a massive aerial slash that launches the opponent into the air before following up with a brutal Somersault Kick.

That’s it for now when it comes to our coverage of Guile – who remains a Chad! We’ll be back with more character reveals and more info on World Tour and Battle Hub in the months to come. Stay tuned! Street Fighter 6 is scheduled for landing in 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC! Visit the official website for more information. streetfighter.com/6/

Street Fighter 6 Redefines the Genre in 2023

Jun 02, 2022 // Andy Wong

Your Moment. Your Fight.

Street Fighter 6 officially hits the scene in 2023 on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC! With explosive style, a diverse roster of characters, and a new system built for creativity, Street Fighter 6 will redefine the genre and welcome players from all gaming backgrounds.

Beginning its journey back in 1987, the Street Fighter series has attracted a wide spectrum of fans including pro players, artists, collectors, cosplayers, and more. Every person has a different reason for playing Street Fighter and in Street Fighter 6 there’s something for everyone. The game will feature modes from previous titles including – Arcade Mode, online matches, Training Mode, local versus battles, and more – all contained within Street Fighter 6’s Fighting Ground game mode. We’re also bringing two brand new modes called World Tour and Battle Hub to expand upon Street Fighter 6’s unbeatable gaming experience.

Modern Graphics with a Coat of Graffiti

We’re happy to announce that Street Fighter 6 is being developed on Capcom’s own RE Engine – previously used to create Resident Evil Village, Devil May Cry 5, and Monster Hunter: Rise. The RE Engine enables the development team to bring-to-life fine details like individual muscles tensing up, cinematic Super Arts, and special stage effects like cherry blossom petals twirling along with each character’s movement, all in an effort to enhance the gameplay experience like never before. Pair these enhancements with the splashes of paint and street aesthetic, and you get the distinct art style of Street Fighter 6.

A Diverse Roster of Characters

Street Fighter 6 wouldn’t be Street Fighter without its iconic roster of characters. Returning to the fight are the legendary Ryu, Chun-Li, and Luke who have undergone slick new character designs dripping in style. The first new face to join the Street Fighter 6 roster of World Warriors is Jamie, a breakdancer with a unique move set featuring his ki-unleashing drink.

Ryu continues training on his endless quest to find true strength. Well-mannered and sincere, he travels the globe in search of worthy opponents. Having overcome the Satsui no Hado, he now yearns for something greater.

Ryu has new moves to reflect his growth over the years. He uses Hashogeki to concentrate his ki in his palms and unleashes it a short distance forward. It’s useful as a follow-up after block strings and combos. During Denjin Charge, Ryu envelops his fists with the Power of Nothingness, enhancing special moves such as Hadoken and Hashogeki. Ryu is vulnerable while performing this move, so careful timing is critical.

Chun-Li is a former agent from the ICPO (International Criminal Police Organization). She now looks after Li-Fen, a victim of the Black Moon Incident from Street Fighter V.  With Shadaloo now fallen, Chun-Li teaches kung fu classes and has become a beloved member of the local community.

Like the legend she is, Chun-Li also has new moves in Street Fighter 6. During Tensho Kicks, Chun-Li rises into the air with a flurry of kicks, which is useful for countering an opponent’s jump attack or to close out combos. She also has a new Unique Move called Serenity Stream, which sees her positioning herself close to the ground. During this stance, Chun-Li’s each normal attack button produces different attacks.

Luke uses his background as a contractor for a private military company to teach mixed martial arts. He spends his days off eating junk food, playing video games, and challenging opponents to a good old fight. Nevertheless, he always has victory in his sights.

Luke’s DDT is a powerful throw activated after the first hit of an Overdrive (OD) Flash Knuckle and is useful for dishing out extra damage. His Fatal Shot fires an additional shockwave after an OD Sand Blast to secure more damage after trading projectiles.

Jamie is a self-styled Chinatown peacekeeper who aspires to walk in the footsteps of Yun and Yang, the Twin Dragons. An expert dancer, Jamie places justice and friendship above all else, defending his town with martial arts.

The Devil Inside is Jamie’s signature move where he takes a swig out of his ki-unleashing drink to raise his Drink Level where higher levels unlock additional moves – and changes his appearance. Jamie can use Luminous Dive Kick at Drink Level 1+, where he extends his leg after a forward jump and quickly drops to the ground.  Another Special Move is Bakkai, which can be used at Drink Level 2+, where Jamie slides along the ground in a series of rotating, upside-down kicks. This move does heavy damage, and is useful when performing combos against opponents that have left themselves wide open.

A Modern Control Type for Everyone

For those who are worried that fighting game inputs are too complicated, we would like to introduce you to Street Fighter 6’s Modern Control Type, where a special move can be performed by combining the “Special Move” button with one directional input. Furthermore, simple combos can be performed by holding down the “Assist” button and continuously pressing some of the attack buttons. Take a look at the chart below to see how much easier it is to perform your character’s flashiest attacks, including Drive System moves. As you can also see, the Classic Control Type is still available for more seasoned players. Feel free to switch between the two!

A Battle System Built for Creativity

Street Fighter 6 marks the debut of the new Drive System, which includes both new and familiar features that will test your creativity. The Drive System allows you to use five different techniques to enhance your offense and defense. Using these techniques will deplete the Drive Gauge, which consists of six Drive Stocks. Some techniques use more stocks than others. While the Drive Gauge does replenish over time, if you happen to run out, you’ll be temporarily put in a vulnerable state called Burnout. During Burnout, if your opponent hits you with Drive Impact in the corner of the stage and makes your back slam against the wall, you’ll be Stunned – that’s right Stun works differently in Street Fighter 6.

Take a look at the image below for a list of the five techniques, how many Drive Stocks they cost (or replenish), and the controls to activate them.

Street Fighter’s First-Ever Real Time Commentary Feature Brings the Hype

Let’s announce another new feature while we’re at it, the Real Time Commentary Feature. A few well-known Fighting Game Community (FGC) commentators and notable faces are lending their voices to be featured in Street Fighter 6. They will offer dynamic real-time commentary as your matches go on and provide easy-to-understand explanations about gameplay. The Real Time Commentary Feature will also support subtitles in 13 languages for more accessibility. The first commentators to hype up your matches are Jeremy “Vicious” Lopez and Aru! We’ll unveil more commentators at a later date.

New Foundations

Street Fighter 6 contains three foundational pillars, each with multiple features or additional modes under them. In Fighting Ground, you will get the classic (and upgraded) fighting game experience, complete with the core modes you expect. The other two pillars are exciting new additions to the series. World Tour is a single-player immersive story mode that pushes the boundaries of what a fighting game is and allows you to leave your own legacy within Street Fighter 6 with your player avatar. Battle Hub, which was briefly shown at the end of Announce Trailer, will also offer players new and unique ways to engage and communicate. Both World Tour and Battle Hub will require a deeper dive in the future, so keep an eye out!

This isn’t only “Your Moment. Your Fight.” It’s your creativity, your ambition, your drive, and your legacy. We have so much more to share in the future leading up to release. Street Fighter 6 will be available in 2023 on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC!


A reimagined Resident Evil 4 is coming to latest-gen Consoles in 2023

Jun 02, 2022 // Kellen Haney

Survival is just the beginning.
A re-imagined Resident Evil 4 is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on March 24th, 2023!

Dirt compressed into a makeshift path from years of foot traffic. A lone crow alights on a branch in the distance, staring out into a bleak, surreal sky. The wooden skeleton of a tree that no longer grows, yet seems to cast a growing shadow over the road ahead. A little shack in the distance where a man is milling about inside, stoking embers in the fireplace as the crow makes a single, lonesome caw…

For many fans, including myself, it only takes a moment to conjure up memories of Resident Evil 4. From the game’s slow-burn introduction to its final moments of thrilling escape, Resident Evil 4 was a turning point for the franchise. Today, we’re proud to announce that the timeless classic will be reborn in 2023 using the RE engine, delivering truly next-gen visuals, modernized gameplay, and a reimagined, deeper storyline while faithfully preserving the essence and maintaining the legacy of the original.

Set six years after the events of Resident Evil 2, an older and significantly toughened Leon S. Kennedy has been shaped by his experiences of enduring the disaster that wiped Raccoon City off the map and events beyond. Now reporting directly to the President of the United States of America, Leon is given a new assignment: To locate and rescue the President’s kidnapped daughter.

Tracking her location to a secluded village in the European countryside, Leon prepares to take his first steps into another nightmare that reaches far past reason. Both long-time fans of the original Resident Evil 4 and newcomers who are experiencing the events of RE4 for the first time will explore a horror beyond belief.

We’ll leave you with a few additional screenshots for now, but keep your eyes on the Resident Evil Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok for all the latest info on Resident Evil 4, coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on March 24th, 2023.


The Dragon’s Dogma 10th Anniversary Celebration Begins!

May 24, 2022 // Kellen Haney

Ten years ago, the mighty Dragon Grigori sealed a fateful pact with Arisen around the world with the release of Dragon’s Dogma.

Today, we invite you to look back and reflect on your countless journeys as fearless Arisen in a perilous quest to break the eternal cycle that held the land of Gransys captive.

Whether you’re newly Arisen fresh off your first Wyrm Hunt or a seasoned hero that’s gone through several cycles of eternal return, this celebration is as much about you as it is about Dragon’s Dogma. After all, we wouldn’t be here, 10 years later, if you hadn’t taken your first courageous steps against Grigori on the beach of Cassardis!

So to that, we say… Thank you, brave Arisen.

We’re starting our celebration of the Dragon’s Dogma 10th Anniversary today with a new artwork and logo (see above!), and a fancy new website prepared just for this occasion. Stay tuned to the official channels on social media, including our freshly Arisen Instagram channel, as we’ll continue to take strolls down memory lane as we continue to celebrate this milestone year:

To celebrate this momentous milestone, the foundation that it created, and the bonds that were forged between people and pawns alike, we hope you join us in this celebration of a decade of endless adventures with Dragon’s Dogma as we look to the future.

We’re very excited for this 10-year celebration, and can’t wait to get you all involved as well!

“They’re masterworks, all. You can’t go wrong.”
