Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Free Demo on Switch

Fans of Monster Hunter series gets to enjoy a free game demo of MHGU on Nintendo Switch prior to release.

A little while ago, developer/publisher Capcom announced their decision of porting action role-playing game Monster Hunter Generations to Nintendo Switch as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. The game has already debuted for Japan last year and waiting for a worldwide release on August 28, 2018. Ahead of their scheduled release date on Nintendo next gen handheld console, a free demo will be available at eShop for all the eagerly waiting Switch owners from August 16th.

The title is not just a mere port of the 2015 Nintendo 3DS game Monster Hunter Generations but an expanded version, which is also enhanced with brand-new additional content that fans will appreciate. Apparently, when it was on the 3DS platform, there were 73 monsters rampaging around and now that count has been upped by another 20, making it a total of 93. Also, there are two new Hunting Styles called, Brave and Alchemy you need to learn aside from newly added Hunter Arts.

Back then, when it was originally released in 2016, the game was quite successful despite having popularity within a relatively small fan-base and thus, started to gain extensive recognition. Upon the release of Monster Hunter: World in early 2018, this action-RPG franchise has eventually become a global phenomenon. However, seasoned players of MHW should take time getting into the gameplay of MHGU as there are more hunting styles to master and many monsters to slay.

Many who have came to know about the series playing MHW this year may find MHGU very different but should not worry at all as the game is on Switch. So, you can carry it around and can get started anywhere in your free time. Known giants like Barioth, Congalala and Diablos have joined in Generations with two new additional monsters; Valstrax and Ahtal-Ka. Capcom reveals that the demo will feature all six Hunting Styles to keep you going until it arrives to your consoles soon.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

The Premium Edition of Resident Evil 2 Remake worth $900 feels overpriced for a Bluetooth mechanical keyboard and masking tapes.

Back in 2015, when producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi were announcing about their attempt for Resident Evil 2 Remake, he may not have anticipated that how  much overwhelming the crowd response would be when they would finally reveal the first look at the project at E3 2018 press conference in Los Angeles. We got a trailer, gameplay reveal and even confirmation for a Collector’s Edition already. Recently, developer/publisher Capcom has unveiled a Premium Edition for Japan.

For a whooping 99,800 Yen or around somewhat $900, this Premium Edition for RE2Make happens to be the most pricy piece of merch and fans are baffled by this overpriced surprise. Titled Biohazard RE: 2 Z Version Premium Edition, the package contains a copy of the full game, a 12-inch statue of Leon Kennedy in his RPD uniform, 32-page official art book, CD of original soundtracks, voucher code to download DLC, a renovation design poster of Raccoon Police Station and the iconic item box.

However, these are all the contents you can get in a Collector’s Edition and are roughly worth $225. The question remains, what is the rest of the money are for? Turns out, an official vintage modeled Lexington typewriter that is actually a bluetooth enabled USB keyboard and four ink ribbons rolled up as masking/washi tape are what raises the price. This fully-functional keyboard compatible with Mac and Windows has a stand on it not to put a blank paper but to mount your tablet or smartphone.

Despite trying to make the design of the typewriter as traditional as possible, it doesn't look anything like the one shown in Resident Evil 2 Remake. If you simply order the original model of this modified version, you can acquire it for only $249. Therefore, it takes approximately $475 to get all of the goodies mentioned above. Two in-game items, Samurai Edge – Chris and Jill Model pistols doesn't seem to cost much as well. So, we are still trying to figure out what that extra $425 is for!

Now we are not sure if the pack is Japan-only release or will it ever come to North America and any other region but will find out soon. January 25, 2019, the survivor horror classic is expected to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One priced only $59.99 for the base game. Capcom is also backing up Resident Evil 2: The Board Game as an official tabletop creation and apparently is very interested in producing more remake titles in future seeing massive positive feedback from die-hard fans.

Someone with Health Boost and Wide-Range, similar to skills from Lunastra armor set can also be very useful in your squad.

Previously, MHW entered in similar timed events with Capcom games and other third-party titles like Devil May Cry, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mega Man and Street Fighter. However, crossing over with something as big as Final Fantasy is surely an extravaganza for fans of the franchise. Besides, this collaboration event is long due because producer Ryozo Tsujimoto of MHW and director Naoki Yoshida of FFXIV have envisioned something like this back in 2011 while focusing on their own projects.

Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

According to their recent financial results, Capcom is definitely on board for more Resident Evil Remake.

Although developer/publisher Capcom took almost three years just to reveal the first look for upcoming survivor horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference after initially announcing the project in 2015, fans reaction to their effort was mostly positive despite some minor fraction of the fan-base. The venture began with Resident Evil HD Remaster back in 2015 by releasing a high-definition version of the original game and now looks like they are going to remake more titles.

As their first quarter financial results call came out recently, they were discussing their strategy with market in a Q&A session, where they talked about Monster Hunter: World and a few other titles from their mobile game library. They also stated that following favorable reception of RE2 Remake at E3, Capcom is thinking about exploring further with variety of properties they still have in fold, which clearly suggests more Resident Evil games will join the remake march when RE2MAKE succeeds.

"It was received very well at E3, and in order to tie this first success to actual sales we are working out our promotional strategy. Further, regarding remakes and rereleases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP."

After RE2 Remake, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is arguably the most fitting title to receive the remake treatment. Partly, because it is the next most deserving game in the series to get reworked and mostly because, doing that will complete a classic trilogy of game being remade. Besides, fans are hugely speculating RE3 to be the next in line of getting revamped when Capcom posted a photo of titular monster Nemesis on their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Collector’s Edition Announced

Capcom reveals info on a special collector’s edition for Resident Evil 2 Remake and talks more about development.

Ever since we had our first-look at survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake during E3 2018 press conference, it seems to get a lot of attention from fans and press alike. Well, this happens to be pretty normal for a most-anticipating game remake project that goes completely silent about development progress for three years after initial announcement. Recently, developer and publisher Capcom just revealed the news of a collector's edition for the game at San Diego Comic-Con.

It's been quite some time that everyone is mostly talking about everyone's favorite rookie cop Leon Kennedy and not about the other most important character of Resident Evil 2; Claire Redfield. She came in Raccoon City looking for her brother Chris and her design is also updated with new look that offer more details of her appearance. The developer team discussed a lot about keeping resemblance to her original design and ultimately came up with something that suits the reinvention.

Leon Kennedy received a younger looking treatment to make that rookie look convincing enough on him. Using 3D scanning, he was modeled after male model Eduard Badaluta almost three years ago. However, only his face was used to portray Leon in-game. A physical version of costume and movements were created with photorealistic graphics of modern day.

Remaking a fan-favorite classic after ages and live up to everyone's expectation is no easy task, especially when people are very much emotionally attached to it. However, developers at Capcom have invested their heart and soul for the project and it was all possible because of the overwhelming demand of true fans. Featured characters and their surrounding environment in Raccoon City received a complete visual overhaul using their powerful RE Engine, arriving on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Resident Evil 2 Remake's Hardest Part Was Alligator

Producers of Resident Evil 2 Remake reveal that giant Alligator was a real challenge to recreate.

It has been more than a month that the news of survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake was fully revealed at E3 2018 press conference with an astonishing trailer, followed by a reinvented gameplay demo. However, hype about the game is still too high and players are having a tough time waiting till January 25, 2019 when it will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Producers of the game recently gave an interview to Daily Star talking about the toughest part of this project.

Aside from facing murderous monsters and fighting zombies, limited resource management and puzzle solving were one of the most important parts of it. The first encounter with a Licker on roof or bumping into Mr. X was quite an experience. However, crossing paths with a giant alligator underneath Raccoon City sewers was one jump-scary moment for sure. Game producers Tsuyoshi Kanda and Yoshiaki Hirabayashi have recently stated it as one of the toughest part to recreate.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake E3 Gameplay Demo

Tsuyoshi Kanda pointed out that 20 years back, they could have gotten away with a lot of things but now they cannot, because of today's motion-captured graphics and photo-real environment. It was so hard to convincingly putting it into the game that they actually considered skipping the part at one point but then continued thinking of possible fan backlash. Otherwise, Rookie cop Leon Kennedy being a man of average size with a knife battling an alligator makes no sense.

Besides, this was one of the fan-favorite moments from the game that players have an emotional attachment to and that nostalgia factor is not easy to give up. So, making things look realistic and making it as convincing was their main goal. Hirabayashi earlier confirmed that Hunk and Tofu are also returning in Resident Evil 2 Remake as well. So, if you have ever heard of any rumor of Alligator, Hunk or Tofu not being a part of the game, you can simply dismiss them now.

Obviously, RE2 wasn't the first title they tried to remake from their popular survival horror franchise and original Resident Evil were the first one to receive reworking treatment in 2002. After years of fan petition, publisher Capcom finally decided to gave fans what they have been wanting for so long. Then upon initial announcement in 2015, RE2 Remake eventually revealed in a new look this year. Despite many expressing disappoint for changing perspective, hopefully it is for the best.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake?

Following a positive response for Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3, Capcom might be teasing for a Resident Evil 3 Remake!

It took three more years to come up with a trailer for Resident Evil 2 Remake project for developer/publisher company Capcom after it was initially announced back in 2015. The response upon dropping the trailer for RE2 during E3 2018 press conference was overwhelming, which almost guarantees for it being successful in advance. Keeping that in mind, is there a chance that they would be interested for a Resident Evil 3 Remake? Well, there is no reason they shouldn't anytime soon.

According to a new Tweet from official Twitter account of Resident Evil games on Friday the 13th of this July, fans are theorizing that maybe there is a recent plan of making a remake for the third game from a survival horror classic trilogy.



RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake E3 Gameplay Demo

Originally Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was meant to be a spin-off game and Capcom wanted to make Resident Evil – Code: Veronica to be the third title in the series. They planned to feature legendary mercenary of Umbrella; HUNK in the lead role and pit him in a cruise ship against hordes of human/plant hybrid bio-weapons. However, the company moved to a new decision of completing a trilogy by making RE3 set in the doomed Raccoon City and Jill Valentine to be the main hero.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake To Include Deleted Concepts

Bringing a fan-favorite character like Jill actually helped players relate to the Raccoon City zombie outbreak more that started from Spencer Mansion. She is on a constant run from a monstrous yet intelligent Tyrant known as Nemesis deployed by Umbrella Corporation, who is after S.T.A.R.S. members and at several point, he chases players from one place to another like a nightmare. Despite RE3 not being that popular as its predecessor; Nemesis becomes one of the most iconic villains of the series.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Have Simple Story Mode

Considering how Capcom entirely revamped one of their best titles, fans are hoping Resident Evil 3 would get the same makeover as a remake project. Although the Tweet has re-ignited of the most cherished dreams Resident Evil fans, it doesn't have much to go with the idea. However, it is also possible that they are subtly dropping hints and checking out reactions of players to get on-board with this project. Whatever they eventually ended up doing, we don't mind a Nemesis reboot at all.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Have No Plans for Switch Release

Development team of Resident Evil 2 Remake project currently has no plan for a Nintendo Switch version.

During E3 2018 press conference, the news of Resident Evil 2 Remake made the most amount of buzz to horror fans as their dream of a remake of original RE2 is finally coming true. We know now that Capcom will use some deleted concepts and old character design, while getting rid of the zapping system for good. Though the game is announced to launch on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, a Nintendo Switch port is not happening at the same time.

Unfortunately, developers have decided to opt out from bringing the survival horror classic to next generation of Nintendo console just yet. They have moved ahead with time by upgrading graphics to top-notch level, which might be a herculean task to port for Switch. Although, first-person shooter games like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus from Bethesda Softworks has already made their way to Switch, Capcom may just sit this one down for this instance.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake E3 Gameplay Demo

Recently, brand manager Mike Lunn of Capcom has set the record straight for any rumor there was for RE2 Remake heading towards Switch by saying:

"No, not at this time. We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment."

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake To Include Deleted Concepts

He also admitted that, their team has given that idea a thought during development but then debunked for the time being. When it comes to competition, Nintendo is one of the biggest rivals for Microsoft and Sony to release third-party titles. Besides, Resident Evil: Revelations and RE: Revelations 2 are already ported to the portable platform of the company. This year, Resident Evil 7 has also debuted on the same port in cloud form, giving a logical hint for RE2 to do the same.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Have Simple Story Mode

However, not for a single time Capcom has gone on record saying that they will never port the game to Nintendo Switch. In fact, they completely not denying the possibly actually suggests that when they clear up the current commitment to remake project of Resident Evil 2, they might get on board Switch train and that is not before 2019 of course. Meaning, Switch owners will not be exploring a Raccoon City overrun by zombies as rooky cop Leon Kennedy or college student Claire Redfield anytime soon.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Have Simple Story Mode

Resident Evil 2 Remake will get rid of the "zapping system" to feature different campaigns for Leon and Claire.

After their immense success of remastering the original Resident Evil game, Resident Evil 2 remake project was a long-overdue considering it was eventually announced back in 2015 by developer/publisher Capcom. So, it is safe to say that this survival horror classic from 20 years ago was one of the most anticipating reveal on E3 2018 press conference. We know that even though it is based on the original game, a few aspects will change and one of them is its main story mode.

Those who started playing the game in the earlier days with either rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy or college student Claire Redfield, are well aware of a "zapping system", where each of them had their turns at the story. Some players were very much fond of this idea and some just outright hated it because it was so tiresome to go back over the area you already played through once more so that you can have an alternate perspective of the situation. That ends with RE2 remake.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version Comes to Nintendo Switch

This is one of the biggest features that developers have decided to change and re-invent as producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi expressed in a recent interview. Although the "zapping system" was reused in Resident Evil 0 for its popularity, they are getting rid of that now to make it really simple. Claire and Leon are both getting their separate campaigns for not making players choose between Claire A/Leon B and Leon A/Claire B, like they all used to. You are still getting both of their perspective but one at a time.

Separating the campaigns are the effort of making it more appealing to modern audience and stretching the whole story in 4 different scenarios cannot be any more boring that it sounds already. In the original RE2, one campaign was focused on William Birkin and he appears as a boss and in another, players are faced by a Tyrant monster named Mr. X. In both states, Ada Wong shows up and interacts with Leon differently, which will also be interesting to see in RE2 remake version.

By simplifying campaign modes, Capcom is actually making a smart choice just like the way they added a third-person viewpoint like Resident Evil 4 to get rid of that boring fixed camera angles during zombie killing. Currently, Resident Evil 2 Remake is scheduled for a release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Thanks to the RE game engine which made Resident Evil 7 possible, Raccoon City and flesh-eating zombie residents will return to its gory glory soon to hunt our heroes.

Resident Evil 2 Remake to Include Deleted Concepts

Upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake will feature unused concept arts and characters from Resident Evil 1.5.

Upcoming remake of survival horror game Resident Evil 2 from Capcom has created a lot of buzz after unloading a brand-new announcement trailer at E3 2018 press conference along with a bunch of still from the project. From what we can tell, this is a whole new game built on the base of the original RE2 and many of the horror elements are redefined. While they are at it, the developers decided to use deleted concept arts and character designs from an early version of the game.

Before it became a horror classic, an early version of the game titled, Resident Evil 1.5 has been worked on to near completion but later got cancelled. The initial plans had the players going back to the destroyed Spencer Mansion and engage in fight with plant-like enemies, a possible boss character blended with Albert Wesker until they came up with the plan of spreading the horror to the outskirts of Raccoon City. Developer team had completed almost 60 percent of this version before it was scrapped.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version Comes to Nintendo Switch

RE 1.5 at first starred rooky cop Leon Kennedy taking charge but instead of Chris Redfield's street savvy sister Claire Redfield, there was a character named Elza Walker, who was also a college student like Claire. Leon and Elza would have started their journey from being trapped inside Raccoon City police station, whereas the place was for the protagonists to gather information about the outbreak in the original release. Just because the producers thought it was dull, it got reworked.

Despite having some close resemblance to the title, RE2 has some noticeable differences like several enemies including a Human Spider, some weapons like assault rifles and grenades, as well as a totally different design for the RPD building. Elements from Resident Evil 1.5 eventually become resources for modders, who keep recreating the game over the years. By the looks of it, Resident Evil 2 remake will include some of the unused concept like a coat for Ada Wong and a red jacket for Claire Redfield.

However, Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition will reportedly feature a skin of Elza Walker for Claire and that make sense as they both shares a lot of similarities and traits. It will also allow players to switch between the soundtrack of RE2 Remake and the original game to bring back the retro experience. It was a wise decision back then to redo the whole project as it became an old-school classic but it sure would be nice of them to drop some easter eggs from those days in the remake game.

At the showcase, RE2 remake demo opens up with rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy joining for duty and goes inside Raccoon City Police Department looking for clues. While trying to keep the vibe of the original game intact, they tried to get rid of the fixed camera angles and made the zombie killing experience more enjoyable. Newly added third-person viewpoint works a lot like Resident Evil 4. However, maintaining the roots, this game will focus less on shooter aspect akin to later entries to the series.

Even though it is called a remake, the entire game is being rebuilt over the base content of the original but developers are not doing a direct clone. Promises of including new elements of gameplay is what we already know about with building barricades to fend off an incoming horde trying to get you. Restrooms are one of the new additions that RE2 never had before. Things that did not change are the use of knife and scarcity of ammunition to keep players on their toes.
