At the Gamer's Day convention in San Francisco late last week, Capcom unveiled a huge amount of upcoming content. We mentioned some of the news about Capcom's announcement last week, including the upcoming PC port of Lost Planet, but there's even more good stuff on the way.
Thanks to the success of Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting on the Xbox Live Arcade, Capcom is apparently poised to take the content platform by storm. Announced at the event were both Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD, the latter of is likely to have many puzzle fans salivating.
The XBLA isn't the only content platform that Capcom has its sights on, though: Rocketman, an old-school shoot-'em-up with online co-op, and Talisman, a strategy game based on the tabletop game, are both due to hit the PSN, as well as the XBLA, in the future.
Despite all the attention being given to the current generation of consoles, Capcom hasn't forgotten about the PS2. Building on, and perhaps parodying, the company's success with the immersing affair Phoenix Wright, Capcom announced Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law. Playing on the Phoenix Wright formula, the licensed title will draw heavily from the off-the-wallcartoon, which—if the quality writing and translation is preserved—could very well be a hilarious diversion from the typical gaming norms. No release date was announced, but the title will be hitting both the PS2 and the PSP. And of course, the latest installation of the Phoenix Wright series is also set to hit the DS this year.
Also currently in the works are two new Mega Man games for the DS, both of which will help to commemorate the blue bomber's twentieth anniversary. The first is a sequel to Mega Man ZX, the runaway hit and award-winning shooter from last year. The second is a collection of three different versions of Mega Man Star Force, the latest title in the Network series of platform-RPG hybrids. Both games are set to hit this fall.
With Resident Evil 4: Wii and Super Puzzle Fighter II on the way this summer, and a bevy of other software to follow later in the year, Capcom looks to be on track for a profitable year.
