Yup. A sing-a-long trailer. Enjoy having that theme song stuck in your head for a while. WayForward Technologies, the guys that brought you Might Switch Force and the recent Adventure Time game, are taking Capcom’s NES platformer classic and giving it an major facelift. Maybe this is inspire developers to actuallty put enough into licensed games. Although it would be great to see some new, quality games rather than franchise games or remakes/HD remasters (I’m looking at you, Squeenix). But I digress; revisiting Duckburg after all of these years would be nice.
Ducktales Remastered will be released in Summer 2013 for the Wii U eShop, Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade for $15.
Capcom has announced that it will be releasing a patch in April that will bring Cross Region Play and Off TV Play to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. This will not only allow you to play the game on your game pad while your friends watch something more entertaining, but it will also allow North American and European players to hunt massive beasts together. Now the game will be released in North America March 19th, so you’ll still have to wait a bit for the patch to take place, but when it releases there will be free additional quests waiting for you on both the 3DS and the Wii U version.
Remember Me, a cyberpunk stealth/brawler coming in May 2013, just received a new trailer showing off a bit more gameplay. It’s a new IP from Capcom that could either be a sleeper hit like Mirror’s Edge, or it could help the company win back a few fans after DmC and the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3. Mixing the old trailer with the new one, it appears fairly ambitious:
The old Gamescom 2012 trailer makes the game appear to be a linear interactive movie with stealth elements. The newer one shows off the more action-oriented aspects of the game, and it enters familiar brawler territory for games that Capcom publishes.
Another, older, gameplay trailer can be found here:
Capcom definitely needs some better press at the moment. The game looks fun, but easy. I’ll hold my breath for the demo.
If you had doubt of Project X Zone ever hitting stateside, you can now safely put those doubts away.

Still suffering the Blue Bomber blues? Want to see some old Capcom back in the limelight? Capcom wants to hear what you want. Just take this official Capcom survey
This brief survey asks which games would you like see get ports or get HD updates. It seems that Capcom is going for a mostly digital distribution for these games, but don’t let that keep you from taking this survey. Some notable options: Mega Man, Mega Man X, and Mega Man Legends compilations + new HD Mega Man Game, possibility of a Resident Evil game in a different genre(tactical, RPG, strategy), and a new Street Fighter Alpha game in HD (based on Alpha series + new characters).
Also mentioned are Power Stone, Ghost n Goblins, Viewtiful Joe, Rival Schools, Onimusha, Darkstalkers, and plenty more. D
Don’t let this opportunity slip away. I really need to play that new Street Fighter Alpha game. OH, also, request a new X-men fighting game! An HD remake of Children of the Atom would be cool, but a brand spanking new X-men fighting game would be insane. THE ROSTER, OH GEEZ, IMAGINE THE ROSTER!
DO THE SURVEY NOW!
The highly anticipated Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney has gotten a launch trailer in its recent release on November 29th. The trailer shows Phoenix Wright handling court cases while trying to down knight, while Professor Layton being calm in the face of danger as usual. There is still not word of a English localization but the possibility of it happening isn’t too far off since all Layton and Ace Attorney games have been localized, including Ace Attorney 5 in the future, with the exception of Ace Attorney Investigations 2
The setting for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is about a place called, Labyrinth City, where Phoenix Wright comes to the defense of a young girl who is accused of witchcraft. Phoenix Wright will question witness and discover false testimony, while Professor Layton goes around talking to people and solving puzzles to assist Phoenix Wright in court cases. In the trailer, it seems there will be new game play aspects, such as Phoenix Wright questioning multiple witnesses instead of only one. Nothing much else known as the moment but one thing’s for sure, there will be a lot of finger pointing.
