Monster Hunter: World Comes to Resident Evil

Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil series is crossing over with Monster Hunter: World in upcoming event.

According to an annual sales report, developer/publisher Capcom has doubled their profit this year through revenue from digital downloads. Two of their biggest contributors for such growth are Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil 2.

While every other major AAA-title is currently prepping up for their upcoming Halloween events, Capcom will be joining a bit late with their upcoming Monster Hunter: World X Resident Evil crossover event on November 2019.

Resident Evil series protagonists Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy are very good at slaying monster for survival. Therefore, Capcom had this interesting idea of picking them up from Raccoon City and throw into "New World".

Fan-favorite 4th survivor, To-fu will likely to be added as a cosmetic alongside other themed unlocks. Zombies are most probably are going to be a part to play as rival Hunters other than some sort of environmental distraction.

The trailer suggests that Hunters will be able to wear Claire and Leon skins aside from a Handler skin of terrifying Tyrant boss, Mr. X. Also, Iceborne expansion will be receiving a free update for a new volcanic area on October 10, 2019.

Latest overview video released at TGS 2019 sheds light on how things play out in Project Resistance.




RELATED: Resident Evil Project Resistance Teaser

Capcom calls Project Resistance a 1v4 asymmetric online survival horror experience that pits four among five players in a game of cat and mouse chase as survivors to stay alive against all odds and is still set in Resident Evil universe.

A mystery man from first teaser video who looked awfully similar to Albert Wesker is actually a new guy named Daniel Fabron. Four young survivors are Samuel Jordan, January Van Sant, Valerie Harmon and Tyrone Henry.

Each of them are specialized in different skills be it hacking, healing, melee attack or even reducing damage. Using their variety of skills with proper teamwork, players can defeat those bio-weapons set loose on them and escape.

There are specific objectives to complete before moving onto a new area and working together helps you find items or solve puzzles. If your teammate is injured, they can be revived but if not, they will die and respawn to kill valuable time.

One of them playing as Mastermind will summon monstrous creatures to hunt them, set traps or manipulate surrounding environment while tracking them using security cameras and those four will have to survive using their own special skills.

If deemed necessary, Mastermind can even take direct control of any zombies or even the Tyrant named Mr. X to stop them. Survivors can only win by making an escape though tackling all obstacles thrown at them before time runs out.

Whether or not Project Resistance is set around the same period of Raccoon City outbreak from Resident Evil 2, it sure reuses assets like gore effect, map location, designs of featuring bio-weapons like regular zombies or Lickers.

Taiwanese game studio NeoBards Entertainment, who previously worked with Capcom on Onimusha: Warlords for PS4 and Resident Evil Origins Collection are in co-development process for Resident Evil game Project Resistance.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Pennywise from IT

Latest mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake has turned Mr. X into Pennywise the Clown from It: Chapter Two.

Even more than seven month after developer/publisher Capcom released their much-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake; some enthusiastic fans can never get enough of it and tries to add something on its PC version.

Ever since the game came out, modder community has been going on a frenzy of adding pop culture characters from various franchises into RE2 and one such endeavor has brought Pennywise the Dancing Clown to Raccoon City.

An ancient cosmic being that has been preying on youngsters from small town of Derry for long has returned with the release of It: Chapter Two and has now swapped places with T-00 model Tyrant, who is commonly referred as Mr. X.

Surprisingly, Stephen King's It character nicely fits into his boots and follows the same routine of chasing you through halls of R.P.D. building while a creepy circus music plays in background and punching you down when close.

This Tyrant boss is already a pretty scary enemy with seemingly no weakness to bullets or other melee weapons; now wearing skin of a creature that gives everyone nightmares has made the relentless pursuer even scarier than before.

Not only does he have a terrifying presence, you have to run from the killer clown since you can't really kill it. Previously, reference of Pennywise was found in an Easter egg on Far Cry 5 and on recent beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Both Claire Redfield and Pennywise outfit mods were made by Marcos RC and one thing to mention there is that they are not free at all. Interested players would have to join his Patreon to get those, according to video uploader.

It: Chapter Two had a successful opening week at global box-office, earning over $300 million so far. We are pretty sure that this menacing creepy clown of Stephen King will show up in many games soon if not in Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Just as they were trying to catch a breath afterwards, a giant door in front of them opens to reveal the infamous Tyrant known as Mr. X standing thereby and the guy puts two mechanical gauntlets in his hands, asserting full control over it.

This could very well be that premise of this new game is set during Raccoon City outbreak event from Resident Evil 2. Mr. X in Project Resistance trailer looks awfully similar to recently released RE2Make and Albert Wesker might be the mystery man.

Resident Evil Project Resistance Announced

Capcom to reveal new Resident Evil game titled "Project Resistance" ahead of Tokyo Game Show 2019.

Earlier this month, developer/publisher Capcom invited U.S. based testers for a new game from their popular survival horror series Resident Evil without hinting whether it is a remake of Resident Evil 3 or just Resident Evil 8.

After launching an official teaser website recently, Capcom announces to reveal a new Resident Evil project titled Project Resistance for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 9, shortly before Tokyo Game Show 2019.

On set date for next month, they will premiere the trailer at 8:00 AM PDT and attendees will be able to view it on Capcom booth. For Japan only, interested individuals will be given chance to test playing but would require early registrations.

Information on Project Resistance is pretty scarce and yet a Reddit user was able to grab a few thumbnails from a YouTube livestream link that are claimed to be from upcoming teaser trailer but they are not large enough to get a clear visual.

Twitter user Nibel has managed to get those screenshots and then posted them later on social media.

Aside from these stills being taken from a live-action video, all we can guess for now is that it will most probably be a four player co-op multiplayer game like Left 4 Dead and maybe a spin-off title like Resident Evil Outbreak from 2003.

Capcom has not cleared out anything about Project Resistance and given how Resident Evil has become their best-selling franchise by shipping 90 million units so far, maybe they are trying out something new other than survival horror genre.

Capcom May Have Teased Devil May Cry 6

During a recent panel at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, Capcom may have secretly teased Devil May Cry 6.

According to recent financial earnings report, Capcom made double profits in first quarter of 2019, major credit for that goes to action-adventure hack and slash game Devil May Cry 5 and survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake.

On a recent behind-closed-doors event at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, official announcement regarding Devil May Cry series was made by DMC5 voice actors that may eventually turn out to be a first reveal for Devil May Cry 6.

Attending a recent panel, voice actor Reuben Langdon who plays Dante asks everyone present to put their phones away before revealing an exclusive footage from Capcom to audience nearing the end of their conversation (45: 12).

It was something related to DMC franchise that is planned to be officially revealed very soon but Langdon was given permission by publisher to unveil an early peak for attendees of their panel before they stopped filming it.

Afterwards, it was posted by Daniel Southworth on his Facebook page, who played role of Vergil in Devil May Cry 5.



RELATED: Capcom to Recruit US Testers for New Resident Evil Game

Turns out, whatever they showed were cut off before at that point and everyone there may be under a non-disclosure agreement, which will not allow them to leak any major secret without facing some legal consequences from Capcom.

Considering DMC5 marks a long-awaited return to a beloved action series that sold over 2 million copies within first two weeks and has been out for six months already, Capcom teasing a potential sequel right now makes all kind of sense.

RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

Also given that the game will not be receiving any more DLCs following release of its last update Bloody Palace, possibilities for a Devil May Cry 6 announcement or something new related to DMC series would not seem out of place.

Capcom would most likely to keep current momentum the franchise have picked up this year by returning after a while and we might expect to get some exciting news regarding a follow-up sequel at Gamescom 2019 next week.

After Resident Evil 2 Remake saw a massive opening on January 2019, fans were rallying for a follow-up with Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake. Regardless, Capcom seems to be going ahead with Biohazard storyline through Resident Evil 8 for now.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.
