Upon crowning a new champion, Capcom Cup 2017 has finally came to an end with the conclusion of PlayStation Experience 2017. Capcom fans have watched and enjoyed the tournament by either visiting live at PSX the booth or at the comfort of their own couch. The year 2017 has been a great year for games and Capcom has done some pretty amazing things too. One of them is to announcing the hugely anticipated Arcade Edition for Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come out on January 16, 2018 with a secondary V-Trigger move for every characters of the game. Till date, Season 2 of Street Fighter V has brought in five brand new characters along with fan-favorite demon warrior Akuma.

Now, it demands that Season 3 brings more charisma to the title by introducing another six new awesome DLC characters.

Street Fighter V Season 3 DLC Characters Revealed

Whereas Capcom used to tease us with the possibility of the characters for the following year, this year they broke the tradition. They revealed all six DLC characters for Season 3 in the cinematic opening trailer for the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!




The trailer starts with Ryu trying to meditate to control his powers as he sees Akuma approaching towards him from behind a waterfall. Then we are indulged in the beautiful mastery of the montage that re-introduces the franchise once again. It beautifully portrays the world of Street Fighter and the legendary world warriors who shaped the tournament as well as the universe of the game each playfully introduce themselves to the audience through their signature gesture or movements.

Within the rally of these worthy fighters who already made it to the Street Fighter V roster till now and then some new faces, that are yet to be included. These six new faces for Street Fighter V Season 3 DLC characters to be are Blanka, Cody, Falke, G, Sagat and Sakura. Four of them are from previous installments of the game except Falke and G, who are the newcomers here. The Season 3 Character Pass will get you all six of them as soon as they are released to join the brawl.




From her days of chasing Ryu for becoming his apprentice and constantly being at fight with her rival fighter Karin, Sakura has grown up and changed a lot. She definitely is not that cute-little school girl anymore as she is seeking new adventures after graduation. Kasugano Residence will be her very own stage, which took inspiration from her stage in Street Fighter Alpha 2. Sakura will be the first among the six to join the battle on January 16, 2018, while release date for the five others remains still unannounced.




There was also an announcement for Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which is an anthology pack featuring 12 awesome titles from the Street Fighter saga since 1987. So, this looks like a perfect opportunity to get all those iconic games altogether for a trip to nostalgia lane. Plus, you get to hone your skills with games like Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike from the collection.

Mega Man 11 Announced

On the 30-year anniversary of arcade's most favorite Blue Bomber protagonist Mega Man, Capcom decided to drop the bomb which the fans of the series might not have seen coming but is happy that it dropped. Yup, you guessed it right. The publisher of the game made an official announcement that the legendary hero will return sometime in 2018 with Mega Man 11. Producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya will be on board with director Koji Oda for this brand-new game of the series.

Mega Man 11 Announced

While there are not much details for Mega Man 11 at hand except that the game will be available to play on Nintendo Switch,  PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We have a trailer at hand to show you a brief peek at what's coming in the upcoming title though. Check it out.




One thing is certain that, Mega Man 11 will still remain a 2D side-scrolling action adventure title. In fact, you can even consider it as 2.5D. From its original 8-bit days, Mega Man has managed to become a legend while also inspiring countless other fan-favorite series in the process. With every other games going through a revolutionary change, Mega Man 11 will surely be no different and is about to create new milestones.

All-New Visual Direction 

What we were able to gather was that while the game will resemble to the predecessors of the series in looks, it will be modernized and a noticeable change in art style will be there. Our hero, Mega Man's appearance might even slightly change and he will have a new weapon as well. In this way, the game is re-invented and fans from both older and newer generation can enjoy it at the same time.

Newest Side-Scrolling Adventure

The year 2018 will not only see the release of the latest installment of the Mega Man series but it will also be celebrated for Mega Man’s 30th anniversary. To increase that excitement a little more, all eight games from the Mega Man X series are coming to PlayStation 4 on the same year. So, you can also go back to your old days with those games while you wait for Mega Man 11 to release. Sounds like a plan!

When a series has 30 years of enriched history of being adorned by fans and players worldwide, we only hope from Capcom to bring their very best with Mega Man 11 and nothing less. Since the title is still on the development stage, we have to hold our excitement for the moment and wait for the revealing of the release date for 2018.

Resident Evil 7 Sells 4 Million Copies

The attempt to re-define the genre of survival horror video game by Capcom was quite successful and we can tell that by the response of fans and critics over the release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Another news on the horizon is that the game has just sold over 4 million copies recently. Despite being a great number, it fails to please the developer and publisher studio. Now this landmark of reaching 4 million unit sales of Resident Evil 7 was set by Capcom earlier this year and looks like they have just reached their target already.

Resident Evil 7 Sells 4 Million Copies

However, they expected to cross the mark a bit earlier than it has. Because, they made assumption before launch that the game will sell an estimate of 4 million copies within a very short time after its release and it actually took nearly seven months for Resident Evil 7 to do that. When Resident Evil 7 shipped 3.5 million copies on release, they took this as a sign of a solid start and then it kind of slowed down.

The actual estimate made by Capcom was a total of 10 million copies for a lifetime but given the fact that while they earned critical acclaim for re-inventing the series with RE7, this move from Capcom has also made a lot of old Resident Evil fanboys upset. This doesn't essentially made the game a flop one but the way they have revamped the world of Resident Evil as we knew it, plus a new way of game-playing along with several DLC to expand the game even further calls for a bit more revenue stream to be honest.

Another reason for Capcom's disappointment could be the fact that the previous installment of the franchise; Resident Evil 6 managed to sell a total of 4.8 million copies and that was actually a lot worse game compared to this one. Still, there are hopes for them to reach their estimate 10 million unit sell as the overall life-cycle of games have significantly expanding these days. Plus, a great number of players go for digital download and those numbers are greater than the ones who buy game disks.

Also, Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition is coming this December 12 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which contains upcoming DLC packs "Not a Hero" and "End of Zoe" as well as previously released Banned Footage Volume 1 and 2. Now, this can hopefully increase a sells raise of the game a bit.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced

More than one year has passed since Street Fighter V is released but still, somewhere the game lacked completion. Well, if you are wondering what we meant by that then let us remind you that Capcom originally released the game without any arcade mode, best-of-three versus mode and a story mode, which are the most common feature a fan would expect from a Street Fighter game these days.

They quickly realized their mistake and immediately started working on development of making it better by adding aspects that players wanted in the first place. Capcom has announced that an arcade edition is on the way. So, the highly anticipated arcade mode is added and much more that you deserve. So, if you've been eagerly waiting for that, it's time for you to take the street for yourself and join the fight.

Resident Evil 7 'Not a Hero' DLC Gameplay Video

Ethan Winters have made it out of the Baker family with his life and there are still some mysteries that left unanswered. So, it's time for a specialist to go in and who better is well equipped to take care of monster business other than Chris Redfield. Of course, the guy is no more bulky and extra muscular to punch out a boulder but throw a monster on his face; he'd still punch his way out on its face.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7’s Next DLC Features Chris Redfield

Capcom has recently dropped a video of the gameplay from upcoming 'Not a Hero' DLC for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and here is your chance to take a good look at the clip.




This first-look of how 'Not a Hero' DLC will let us face the mold monsters inside the abandoned dungeons of the plantation area as Chris Redfield. Redfield is an expert BOW hunter and he has no time to hide. He will kick his way ahead like a badass we know him as. Since the pack is set after the main game, you won't probably be seeing any of the Baker family members but it will reveal many important aspects of the story you've been worried about.



After Resident Evil 7 came out, many players of the game was complaining about not being able to play as one of the fan-favorite characters of the series. So, when Capcom announced of a DLC where we will be able to control Chris Redfield and kick some serious butt of all the new monsters of the series, it was a moment of rejoice for us all. Though this version of Chris doesn't look like anything that we can relate to, he still is an efficient monster hunter.

The DLC got delayed during development and the studio apologized for this to the fans. Now it is finally coming out as a free game pack on December 12, along with another called End of Zoe, which by the way will not be free of charge of course. Both of these DLC packs will be available with the Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition also coming out on the same day.

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package Comes to PlayStation 4

Originally the first installment of the open world, survival horror beat 'em up video game Dead Rising was only exclusive to Xbox 360 but then it explored all the other major platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The latest one from the series is Dead Rising 4, which came out in 2016, just became available on Steam from March 14, 2017 and now, it is finally coming to PlayStation 4 within a few months.

Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package Comes to PlayStation 4

Capcom Vancouver has just announced the news of the game coming to PS4, titled Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package and here is a brief look at what it has to offer.




If you are wondering, what's the big fuss about Dead Rising 4 coming to PlayStation 4, then we have to let you know that it's not just the plain old game that is coming to PS4 platform, because almost everyone is doing that these days. So, what's special about it then? Dead Rising 4 will be making its debut on PS4 with new content as well as a great deal of good stuff, henceforth the title; Frank’s Big Package.

Frank West as Mega Man

The key-features of Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package are as follows:

• Dead Rising 4: The best version of the game till date and that means, it has the post-launch difficulty settings and access to all future updates.

• Capcom Heroes: Now this is an all-new interesting story to play Dead Rising 4, where you will be taking control of Frank West as he wears a dozen costumes of the classic Capcom characters and fight as they were supposed to.

• All DLC: All the downloadable content that has came out, from the Stocking Stuffer Holiday Pack to single player game Frank Rising story. Plus, Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf action in multiplayer mode.

• All Bonus Content: Candy Cane Crossbow, My Bloody Valentine Pack, Sir-Ice-A-Lot, Slicecycle, Street Fighter Outfit Pack, Ugly Winter Sweater and X-Fists, with the special abilities and weapons of those characters.

Imagine a Capcom game that offers players to play the game with their other favorite game characters from other games of the same company. With all the additional content seems tempting enough aside from the main game, we think the Capcom Heroes mode will be the most rewarding to the fans. You will be playing as Frank but he will be in-game as either X from the Mega Man, or Cammy of Street Fighter and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective's Sissel.

Developed by Capcom Vancouver, Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package will be available to play on PlayStation 4, from December 5, 2017 only for $49.99. Even though the original game received a mixed reaction from critics and fans, we can only hope that it works out fine this time.

Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite New Gameplay Trailer

It's been nearly five years since the last installment of Marvel Vs. Capcom was released. Now we have MvC: Infinite oncoming in 2017 and it is the talk of the town again. Just a few days after they dropped a Story-Mode Trailer, Capcom has released another gameplay trailer for upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. This one is more focused on the fight-scene rather than any story or whatsoever.

Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Ultron

Watch the action-packed co-op battle of the heroes and villains from two universe that are about to collide.




The trailer shows Chun-Li and Hulk pitted against the duo of Thor and Strider Hiryu, both sides going full-on with their specific sets of moves. As the former team unleashes their combo moves on the latter, the scenario is quickly reversed. Within the next few seconds, Thor and Ultron join forces and the villainous android possessing an Infinity Stone decides to be playful.

The demonstration for the Space Infinity Stone by Ultron is some sight to behold with true amazement as the game developers were being really creative about the Stone's power. However, even if it was just a playful demo, unleashing all those near-limitless raw-power on a mere mortal hero like Hawkeye seemed like an overkill.

Available in three different variety of Standard, Deluxe and Collector’s Edition, offering all the cool bonuses, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be releasing on September 19, 2017 for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Resident Evil 7 'Not a Hero' DLC Delayed

Ever since the seventh installment of the Resident Evil series has been released, it's been creating all kind of news. Then came the news of 'Resident Evil 7’s DLC featuring Chris Redfield' and everyone loses their minds. Originally, the DLC titled 'Not A Hero' was set to release on during spring 2017 but according to Capcom reports, the DLC will not be out by then.

Recently, Capcom executives have made this decision of delaying 'Not A Hero' and took YouTube to shootout this official announcement to the fans.

Resident Evil 7 'Not a Hero' DLC Delayed

Here is the three minutes video published on Resident Evil's official YouTube channel that explains the reason for the delay.




Producer Masachika Kawata and director Koshi Nakanishi have addressed the reason for the unexpected delay in the DLC's release date to be "Quality". As Resident Evil 7 has not only re-invented the franchise and genre but also raised the bar of expectation much higher. Even though they had nearly finished the game, they thought it is not worthy of being the DLC this game deserves. So, to try and reach the high amount of expectations from fans, Capcom's RE team has taken this initiative.

And given the humane nature of the message and their simplest attempt to reach out to fans and gamers like this really had a positive vibe. Most of the awaiting audience were OK with it as they are prioritizing the quality for a DLC content that is intended to be free.

Marvel Video Games Will Create Original Stories

Since the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of live-action Iron Man film in 2008, Marvel has always tried and carefully maintained the stories and characters' tie to each other. Whether it is the blockbuster superhero movies like The Avengers or the super-hit Netflix shows like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, they kept that chain intact and literally “It’s all connected”.

Recently, at the 2017 DICE Summit, Marvel Games' Creative Director Bill Rosemann has opened up about their latest gaming ventures. He revealed that Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy or Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man video games wouldn't be tied to any recent storylines. In fact, they will stand out to the fans with their original plotlines. The developers are given the freedom of choosing elements from all of Marvel history and choose what suits with their project at hand. Hopefully, that will give us some great, brand-new adventures to live on.

Marvel Video Games Original Stories

Currently, there are at least four confirmed video game projects in the works with Marvel Games; Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite and Square Enix’s The Avengers for now. There might also be a few more on the pipeline that gamers will see in the upcoming years.

People who have seen the Guardians of the Galaxy film will be able to relate to The Telltale Series of game adaptations as they play. Rosemann reassures that, considering the audience for the games, they have decided to follow this motto. However, the production of these projects will not be rushed on the developers to forcibly try and fit the story to the timeline of their movie counterparts.

Resident Evil 7’s Next DLC Features Chris Redfield

Resident Evil 7 has been released over the consoles and fans worldwide have been taking this much-anticipated game with both positive and negative response so far. But one thing is certain, which is, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (2017) is making a name for itself. Since the players were deprived from playing as any canonical characters that previously appeared on the series before and instead have to play with a brand-new character Ethan Winters, their reactions are mixed.

However, for those who eagerly crave for some old faces to show up again, Capcom has an arrangement in their upcoming DLC pack for RE7 titled "Not A Hero", featuring fan-favorite RE veteran Chris Redfield.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Not A Hero DLC

According to Capcom reports, around sometime during this spring season, "Not A Hero" will be released for free. If you are still skeptical about the news then here goes the Tweet that declared the news.


WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RESIDENT EVIL 7.

If you have finished playing Resident Evil 7 and gone through all the cut-scenes and clips, then you already know that Chris Redfield eventually shows up at the end in a cameo role. Though, much about him is neither revealed or clarified and he only mention his name as "Redfield" to Ethan, players and fans are still dubious about him being the real Chris as he was apparently working for Umbrella Corporation during his brief appearance.

Much like to people's reaction towards Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, "Not A Hero" DLC featuring Chris Redfield is also having mixed response so far. If you take a close look at his character design shown in the official Tweet, you will be able to relate to fact that this ain't the same old Chris Redfield that Resident Evil fans have known for past few decades.

Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained

In their tradition of scaring people with survival horror games, Capcom has returned with the seventh and latest installment of their crown jewel Resident Evil series. While this was a most-anticipated piece of the franchise, a reboot of some sort were expected by the fans and make no mistake as it was a reboot. Just not the one that changes the entire landscape of the base plot and then start anew from a fresh point.

At the end result, some proclaimed it to be the best of the series and some thought it was a total piece of crap. Moreover, many fans are still wondering what does the plot really means in overall and where does it lead them next. Simply, we cannot blame who are feeling a bit left out because, it is true that the turn they took with this game was a bit too much for many old fans to catch on and some of the newcomers to the series are also trying to figure out where it all takes them.

Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained

Resident Evil 7 roughly takes 10 hours or so to complete. So, we suggest if you haven't finished playing the game yet, you might want to do that before you go any further from this point as we are about to unleash a lots of spoiler-filled game details below. Here we go.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR RESIDENT EVIL 7.

The entire Baker family is a weird mix of chaos and psychotic personalities. While more than 20 persons has gone missing in their property over the course of 2 years and no one decides to investigate is a bit odd. Or maybe, someone came but didn't actually make it back. Ethan faces Jack and his wife Marguerite Baker a couple of times and ultimately was forced to kill them for his own survival. Lucas however was healed and was secretly working for Umbrella Corporation all along.

The Psychotic Baker Family

Many video games these days are coming out of the age-old clichés of delivering a singular ending after you finish the game. Instead, they gave you alternate endings where you are faced with different scenario and consequences, while also reserving one which is considered as the canonical ending. Most of the time, it happens to be the one where the hero faces a comparatively happy ending.

Following this trend, Resident Evil 7 has decided to give us two endings that are based on the decisions game protagonist Ethan Winters is about to make. After taking care of Jack Baker, Ethan has to choose between his wife Mia or Zoe from the Baker family to give the serum and stop the infection of the Mold.

Mia or Zoe

If you as Ethan choose to give the serum to Mia, she will survive and when all these chaos is over, will receive medical attention as they leave the wretched place. From this point, you will not see Zoe ever again. This one can be considered as the canonical ending or good ending. On the contrary, if you end up helping Zoe over Mia, then she will die before you reach the wrecked ship and Mia will also sacrifice herself to let Ethan escape. She will show up again only to die at Ethan's hand before he leaves behind the Baker Estate. This one is the bad ending.

RE7 is full of surprises at every corner and one of the biggest one of them was the secret of Eveline; the little girl that you can see at the box cover of the game or promotional arts. She also pops out several times inside the game and guess what? She is the one big-bad monster that you have to face at the end of the game. Her story was never actually a well kept secret in the game if you have read the information files.

resident evil 7 eveline
Secret of Eveline

It appears that Eveline is just another bio-weapon of “E-Series” by Umbrella Corporation and they were actually sending her to an undisclosed location in the first place. She uses the molds to control anyone who is infected and it is near-impossible to get rid of her control as she constantly exposes her victims to hallucinations, which compels them to follow her command and commit horrific deeds.

One scientist theorizes that she actually longs for and creates a family of her own to receive parental love from them. This explains why she chose to stick with the Baker family and how her power has evolved them into super-powered cannibalistic monsters. Whenever anyone is infected by the mold, the person starts seeing Eveline and experiences illusion every now and then.

Ethan was also infected by the virus as well. In his case, it also gave him regenerative abilities to re-attach his arm and leg. He also had his share of visions of the girl and at one point; he even had a conversation with a pre-infected Jack Baker about how they are all held captive by Eveline. She appears to Ethan as a 10-year-old girl before he injects her with a serum and she revealed herself to be the giant mold monster. She actually is that old woman sitting in the chair you encounter at several points of the game.

eveline resident evil 7
Eveline and Mia

Mia Winters were tasked to transport Eveline on a freighter ship as per the orders of her employers at Tentsu and that was three years ago before she went missing. Many may speculate that the wandering Mold monsters from the ship might be failed experimented subject created by the baker family, whereas they are spawned from black, gooey “vomit” of Eveline. Her unstable nature and the rampage of the monsters made the ship stumble onto Louisiana for an unbeknown Jack Baker to find her.

During the final boss-battle, Ethan is assisted by an unforeseen person from a helicopter, who threw him a gun that carve the name ‘Albert-01’, a weapon similar to Wesker’s S.T.A.R.S. handgun. It is still unclear when you were expecting a rocket launcher, why someone would hand you over a handgun, except for the game developers to drop a hint at something. Anyways, as Ethan uses that weapon to take down Eveline for good, the guy comes to rescue him.

Agent Redfield

As his mysterious savior comes nearby and removes the gas mask he was wearing, we finally get to see his face and he proclaims that he is “Redfield,” which is a direct reference to one of the series protagonist Chris Redfield. Though fans had hard time believing this was in fact the real Chris as he doesn't look anything like the one they knew. Some even came up with the theory that this was someone else who is impersonating Redfield, most possibly Umbrella operative Hunk.

We thought that we will have to wait till the Resident Evil 7 free DLC 'Not A Hero' comes out but this theory was later debunked when the character is seen listed as Chris Redfield in game’s credits and Capcom finally cleared the air by revealing that we will be able to play as Chris in the 'Not A Hero' DLC. Maybe after depicting him like a bulky steroid junkie in Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, Capcom has finally decided to make some change and shifted tone of the character only to receive massive skepticism among the fan-base.

Another thing that might seem shocking to a lot of old Resident Evil fans that Chris Redfield appears in a helicopter that bears the logo of Umbrella Corporation. Now, this upsets a lot of establishment of the franchise and complicates a lot of story settings because, it was Umbrella who actually started messing around with these viruses and was responsible for the outbreak and eventual destruction of Raccoon City in the first place. From the very first game, Chris and Umbrella Corporation was never an item.

However, there are hints that this may not be the same corporation that is infamous for their creation of the T-Virus and maybe despite having the same name, their motive has changed just for this instant. Another thing to take on account is that, Umbrella’s logo has slightly changed. The blood red color has been swapped with blue. This might be a hint at something that the 'Not A Hero' DLC will shed lights on or it was just a change of design.

We also cannot sweep out the possibility that it was actually Umbrella Corporation, who came up with the experimentation of the “E-Series” strand of the virus and conducted tests on Eveline. They coming to rescue Ethan can serve two purposes at once. For one, they could've destroyed Eveline anytime they wanted but they wanted her alive for further tests. Then, they came to pick up Ethan as he was infected with the mold but free of Eveline's control. So, now they can extract the sample of the virus and continue their research.

Or perhaps, they are just a fraction of the vile corporation taken over by the heroes working against bio-terrorism. Just saying! This is still a very much debatable point that is not taking us anywhere soon. We still are nowhere close to find out why on earth Chris Redfield is working for Umbrella and what is the true motive of this shady organization this time. Most probably, the upcoming series of DLC will clear more confusion and doubts from our minds.

Umbrella is Watching

Also, if you have played the Beginning Hour demo of Resident Evil 7, you can find a photograph taken that shows the Umbrella Corps helicopter above the Baker Estate. The picture has writing on its back “Are they watching us from helicopter?” This points out that they actually were keeping an eye on the family but probably chose not to directly engage or interfere for some reason. So, maybe they are not as clean as they come after all.

Receiving generally a very positive response in general from critics and regular gamers except for some serious veterans of the series who sees this one as an abomination, Resident Evil 7 is out now worldwide for playing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
