Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Adds Kage

A brand-new character Kage joins the roster of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for Season 4 from December 16.

After the Arcade Edition of fan-favorite fighting game Street Fighter V released for PC and PlayStation 4 earlier this year, developer/publisher Capcom had a great run with it and professional players on many tournaments and fans loved it.

To show appreciation to the community folks, they have created a brand-new character named Kage out of the shadow of Satsui no Hado, the evil force that is rooted inside Akuma and he will join the roster from the very beginning of the next season.

Below is an official trailer that showcased the reveal of the character and some of his gameplay features you can check out in advance.

Initially, Kage may look a lot like Evil Ryu nor is he a revamped skin but he definitely is not and is something very different. When Ryu has rejected to embrace the power of Satsui no Hado, the physical embodiment of it has taken form and become Kage.

Ryu actually has the dark power of Satsui no Hado within him and whenever he lets it take over his persona altogether, he becomes Evil Ryu. When this persona takes over, he is on a path of destruction under the influence of the dark force.

For years, he has been desperately trying to keep it at bay so that it cannot consume him entirely and now has overcome the weight of that power. However, Satsui no Hado decides to chose a path of its own and rises in the form of Kage.

Following his transformation, the character puts up a brutal display of his raw power against opponents like Akuma, Ryu and Sagat, destroying each of them one by one by unleashing his moves on them in battle with ruthless efficiency.

Kage has variation of Hadoken fireballs inspired from both Akuma and Ryu that he can conjure up. He also has the axe kick, Ryusokyaku of Evil Ryu while being able to deliver shoryuken uppercut and a spinning kick to the opponent.

The Critical Arts and V-triggers in him are just two other powerful attack Taigyaku Mudo and Shun Goku Satsu to throw his opponents off balance. The latter is the similar move to the Raging Demon that Akuma uses but is specifically modified for the character here.

Similarly to the Hunters of the titular game, Geralt also specializes in slaying dangerous monsters and rather than just letting people wear his costume, he will be added as a playable character tasked with completing Witcher-themed quests.

Also, it offers a unique gameplay experience that is a blend of RPG mechanics from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into the world of Monster Hunter. To see Geralt implementing his combat prowess of swordplay and magic powers against the giant beasts will be really interesting.

Resident Evil 2 Remake May Have Micro-Transactions

Recently revealed ESRB rating for Resident Evil 2 Remake has finally confirmed that the game will use micro-transactions.

As we are heading closer to January 25, 2019, the hype only intensifies even more for the upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide from developer/publisher Capcom.

We saw multiple screenshots, gameplay walkthrough and trailers that gave us chills with each new revealed detail. The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) rating for the game has also arrived and it confirms that there will be some form of micro-transactions as well.

RE2 Remake is now officially been rated Mature by ESRB for the inclusion of "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language", which of course is no surprise to the fan-base or the players as we already witnessed some gory nastiness in already released media.

The use of micro-transactions however is quite new for everyone in a RE title and since there was no details other than the mention of "In-Game Purchases", we certainly don't know what the game will offer players within the game.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Deluxe Edition Content

Earlier, Capcom confirmed that players would be able to unlock original classic costumes for Claire and Leon for free. Even bonus missions like HUNK and Tofu is added within the base game and not as an additional downloadable content.

Hopefully, the mention of in-game purchase on the rating is cosmetic items for costumes and weapon skins that wouldn't impact the gameplay in any manner and thus, players will not have to spend more bucks to gain gameplay advantage or unlock extra playable content.

After the developer initially confirming working on Resident Evil 2 Remake back in 2015, it took three more years to have it revealed at E3 2018. Considered as one of the best entries in the entire series, fans have been petitioning for a remake for years and it is finally happening.

Not only does the studio provides a complete graphical overhaul for the title with their revolutionary RE Engine, the franchise is going back to its roots of survival horror in a major way that totally suits its growing legacy and paving ways for more remakes of classic titles.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Capcom recently releases new batch of screenshots from Resident Evil 2 Remake project, showcasing Ada Wong.

We are only months from Capcom's long-awaited upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to drop on January 25, 2019 worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after years of waiting for it to finally come out.

As you eagerly wait for the title to release, a fresh batch of new screenshots from the game has been revealed featuring the redesigned character of Ada Wong, some more of Claire and Leon, the unstoppable tyrant Mr. X and some more monstrosities.

The remake is an overall improvement of the classic from 1998 and development team was careful when modeling these fan-favorite characters and creatures for the project. The re-modeled Ada Wong is a great example of how well the job is done so far.

Though not a main protagonist like street-savvy college student Claire Redfield and rookie RPD cop Leon S. Kennedy, Ada has an important role to play amidst the zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and at a certain point she becomes a playable character as well.

Many Resident Evil 2 fans were worried that the studio might change Ada Wong's iconic red dress for the remake but they actually had multiple character redesigns for the game. Even Leon and Claire's looks has been reworked a little bit while keeping certain aspects of original outfits retained.

Capcom’s RE Engine has definitely accomplished some great wonders bringing RE2 to life and the visual enhancement of the remake project surpasses what they did with it in Resident Evil 7 a hundred miles in terms of graphics.

The final set of stills has Leon has an encounter with a shotgun-wielding civilian, who most likely to be the Kendo Gun Shop owner, Robert Kendo that he come across at an early point of the game right before he meets his fate to the rabid undeads of the outbreak.

Then a trip to the sewers has him face with a heavily mutated William Birkin that resembles to nothing like a person anymore with only exception of a hand. The first two shots of Birkin had us believed it is a crocodile-human hybrid of some sorts.

Just like Ada from Leon's campaign, young Sherry Birkin from Claire's story will also be playable for a brief time. We also get our first good look at Mr. X and a G-Virus-induced William Birkin, who has mutated to an even reformed stage, which is nearly beyond recognition.

Apparently, the Tyrant monster is chasing Claire and Sherry inside the Raccoon City police station, something that is derived from the original sequel of Resident Evil. To make things worse for Claire, there is also a Licker alongside the Tyrant.

With players hyped about the game all around the world, Capcom is trying their best to deliver a solid game that they carefully worked on for so long. We heard rumor of a playable demo to be out in December and that will give us an idea of the gameplay mechanics too.

Resident Evil 2 is a timeless horror classic that is still relevant and by honoring the survival horror essence, it has brought the series back on the spotlight once again. With all the potential it holds, the title can easily become one of the biggest games of 2019.

Monster Hunter Movie First Look Revealed

Official exclusive first-look image of Monster Hunter video game movie adaptation is just revealed today.

Back in May, it became official that Capcom and Constantin Film signed director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) for a live-action Monster Hunter movie starring his wife and actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) in lead role.

Shooting for this upcoming fantasy action thriller film has already began, which is based on fantasy-themed action role-playing Monster Hunter game series. We have a brand-new exclusive photo from the set showing the first-look of the movie.

The official plot synopsis for the film is also revealed by distribution company Screen Gems recently, which is as follows.

Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, revolting attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man who has found a way to fight back.

The image features Milla Jovovich as Lt. Natalie Artemis, an original character created solely for the film and not from the game series. Actor Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak, Tom-Yum-Goong) appears as one of skilled warriors that battles large monsters called The Hunter.

Artemis is shown carrying a pair of Dual Blades on her back, a carving knife on thigh and a Slinger on left arm that she showed off earlier on Instagram. Hunter is seen wielding an iconic Giant Jawblade from the game and a Great Hunter's Bow, a look inspired from the Field Team Leader of Monster Hunter: World.

Anderson said in an interview from the set in South Africa that even though the character Artemis is an original character who never existed in the game, her armor and equipment will take direct inspiration from the game franchise.

Take Artemis' chest piece for instance as the Odogaron chest piece takes reference from Monster Hunter: World and the embossing designs are similar as well. Her different outfit only means that she is an avatar of audience that can be customized with different sets.

Although Jovovich herself has been posting photos from the set of the movie for some time that gave us some early glance, none of them actually revealed anything other than what sort of direction the movie is going for or what character are in there.

Shooting at South Africa's Atlantis Dunes, Anderson chose the location for its likeness to the Wildspire Waste from the games. He also plans on showcasing a multiple topographical locations in the film to keep par with the game.

Anderson and Jovovich are teaming up once again after their commercially successful stint on video game adaptations of Resident Evil franchise from Capcom. Aside from Jovovich and Jaa, the film also includes actors Diego Boneta, Meagan Good and Ron Perlman in supporting cast.

Resident Evil Movie Reboot to Be Based on Resident Evil 7

Screenwriter Greg Russo revealed that he took inspiration from Resident Evil 7 for the script of Resident Evil movie reboot.

Long before the Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) starrer Resident Evil movie franchise ended with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, there was announcement for a series reboot.

Although Anderson is not returning to direct again, Constantin Films are handling the project with screenwriter Greg Russo readying drafts and to be directed by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring), which could be a delight to horror fans in general.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version Comes to Nintendo Switch

Russo has recently opened up in an interview about his writing process and how he took inspirations to follow Capcom's lead to re-inventing the series. One of the main aspects of that motto is to go back to the roots of horror in the first place for him.

For me it was very clear cut that I wanted to go back and make it scary again like a horror film in terms of the classic James Wan style so that was the pitch, going back and looking what made the games scary in the first place so yea Resident Evil 7 was a bit of a touchstone for my draft.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Hits 5 Million Sales

For years, fans have been complaining about the RE movies from director Anderson for moving far from the horror and making over-the-top action flicks. What they cannot deny that whether or not they were crappy movies, they made a ton of money and thankfully came to an end.

Though Russo did enjoy the films, but he believes that RE franchise has always prioritized the elements of horror first and then focused on action. And that is why; he chose to take writing inspiration from the terrifying 2017 game.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained

He would personally love to see a Resident Evil film made in Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style and centered on Baker Family. Then he wants Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to jump in the middle as Chris Redfield and punch boulders for the ending scene.

Greg Russo has already handed over his draft to Constantin Films and looks like they are pretty content with what he came up with. James Wan is also producing the Resident Evil movie reboot and we expect him to come up with his classic style of horror.

Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

An animated series adaptation of Devil May Cry is coming from Netflix's Castlevania producer Adi Shankar.

After the immense success of gothic fantasy game series Castlevania animated adaptation for two seasons on Netflix, executive producer Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey) moves focus towards his upcoming project, Devil May Cry animated series.

Like Castlevania series of video games, action-adventure hack and slash series of Devil May Cry titles from Capcom has received massive fan-following over the years and he has acquired rights for the property before Hollywood screws it up badly.

By now, every popular video game fans know that how these big-budget Hollywood movies literally screws up these beloved franchises and other adaptations of Capcom series like Resident Evil and Monster Hunter are clearly no different.

One other thing that you should know is that, Devil May Cry series will join Castlevania in his very own Bootleg Multiverse, which previously made Judge Dredd, and the Power Rangers short films on Marvel's Punisher and Venom.

These graphically violent shorts have made a unique identity for his work that we also saw in the two seasons of Castlevania on Netflix. Though the idea of DMC existing on a shared universe with the gothic fantasy saga is a bit weird but this is what we got.

Shankar's take on Netflix's Castlevania series has met with critical success and it is considered as the best video game adaptations ever. He even managed to keep that up in the second season of the series and is widely supported by devoted fan-base of the franchise.

Currently, the latest installment from the fan-favorite series, Devil May Cry 5 has been scheduled to release by Capcom on 8 March, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after the game was revealed back at E3 2018 earlier this year.

Taken right from Claire's campaign, the video opens up as she comes across an abandoned, dark hallway blocked with furniture and enters a room at her left. She sees a lone Licker is feeding on a victim and another bloodied dead body lies on the floor next to it.

Without wasting a moment, she draws her M79 grenade launcher and blasted it onto flames before putting two more rounds on it. Another one from the wall above is targeted next but this one is a tough cookie to bake and took too many bullets.

Even though there weren't any constraints like a fixed camera angle or their long tongues hanging from above to give players a jump scare for the first time they met, this confrontation was not any less scary than before because of the sheer aggressiveness of these creatures.

On top of that, they constantly jump around to dodge your bullets and will do ranged attack ruthlessly with their razor-sharp talons when in close proximity, which we can tell is pretty lethal judging by the way Claire reacted to it.

After that, she goes inside what it seems like a morgue where she checks the storage to get supplies like Red Herb from an empty one, got creeped out by some huge cockroaches from the next and a Flash Grenade from another with a corpse beside it.

A few of the corpse were feeling the kick of T-Virus to came back to life and attack her, which she repels with one Acid Round, knife and gunshots. Sooner as she came out of the room, a Licker jumped on top of her only to get smoked in one shot.
