Capcom to Announce Two New Games at Jump Festa 2020

Capcom will reportedly reveal two brand-new games at annual anime event Jump Festa 2020 in December.

Year 2019 has been exceptionally well for renowned video game developer/publisher Capcom, launching some of their most successful titles like Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion and Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Of course, they would like to keep that flow going and release more games to keep players engaged. To that, a recent rumor is suggesting that Capcom is planning to reveal two upcoming games at Jump Festa 2020 anime event.

A report on Gematsu quotes Japanese website Ryokutya2089, which claimed that Capcom plans to show four titles at annual Jump Festa 2020 event next month including MHW: Iceborne, Mega Man Zero/ZX and two unreleased games.

However, official source says that they are only going to demonstrate two of above-mentioned games. One of those reveal could very much be Resident Evil 3 Remake that YouTube channel Spawn Wave speculated to drop at The Game Awards 2019.

Both Iceborne expansion and Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection are coming out next year in January. So it really makes sense for Capcom to let players take an early preview at those games and build some hype in advance.

Jump Festa is taking place in a few weeks next month, same as The Game Awards and theory for a reveal of RE3 Remake at the latter only seems reasonable as it is one of the biggest stages for companies to announce their latest AAA-games.

Also, RE2 Remake has been shortlisted for "Game of the Year" nomination for this year at TGA. It would be an epic moment for all fans to see their favorite classic survivor horror title winning and its sequel getting announced.

Since there is no official confirmation for this rumor, they might stick to regular plan for Jump Festa and prepare for a showcase at The Game Awards 2019, or take stage at their high-profile Capcom Cup 2019 event at the same time.

BioWare Exec Producer Teased Dragon Age

Mike Darrah, executive producer at BioWare, simply Tweets "Dragon Age" to tease a possible reveal soon.

Last year, General Manager Casey Hudson of developer BioWare hinted at dark fantasy role-playing series Dragon Age shortly before an awaited reveal of Dragon Age: The Dread Wolf Rises at The Game Awards 2018.

Currently in development under that name, fans in general are calling the title Dragon Age 4 and executive producer Mike Darrah has taken social media to tease fans on some upcoming announcement shortly before TGA this year.

For over a year, there was no update on how they are progressing and that lead many to wonder whether there is any issue. Although, developers didn't say anything about current state of work but they always dismissed any concerns.

Just as they did earlier this month on 5th anniversary of Dragon Age: Inquisition by posting a letter from in-game character Solas, a random tease like this just before yearend and ahead of a grand ceremony like TGA can lead to some new reveal.

Mike Darrah has taken Twitter to type nothing but simply "Dragon Age" and that was enough to have everyone guessing.


RELATED: BioWare to Overhaul Anthem

It came shortly after BioWare revealed plans of working on a massive overhaul of their most-anticipated title Anthem. When they showed a trailer for "The Dread Wolf Rises" last year, the game was on an early stage of development.

A new trailer for Dragon Age 4 might be on its way to be shown at The Game Awards 2019, which is only two weeks away from now. Therefore, Darrah can very well have the pleasure of teasing eager fans a little in advance with his Tweets.

Metroid Prime: Trilogy HD May Be Announced for Switch

Metroid Prime: Trilogy HD and Super Metroid remake for Switch is rumored to get revealed at The Game Awards 2019.

Fans of sci-fi action Metroid game franchise has been waiting for series protagonist Samus Aran to make an anticipated comeback for some time after she last appeared on Nintendo 3DS title Metroid: Samus Returns in 2017.

According to renowned Nintendo leaker LeakyPandy, there might be an announcement for Metroid Prime: Trilogy HD re-release and a remake of Super Metroid for Nintendo Switch, most likely to be at The Game Awards 2019.

It was revealed following an accidental leak from Walmart Canada that upcoming action-adventure game Metroid Prime 4 was set to come out by the end of 2019 but that project has been completely scrapped to restart development.

An idea for Metroid Prime: Trilogy for Switch has been out there when Nintendo had to delay Metroid Prime 4 earlier this year to give players something to keep busy and building up hype for their highly-anticipated project.

Then a new listing for Switch version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy showed up at Swedish retailer site Inet that was scheduled for February 2019. It was particularly quoted there to have a reveal at The Game Awards 2018 but that never happened.

Nintendo possibly held up its official confirmation last year due to unexpected holdup of Metroid Prime 4 and employed original Metroid Prime series developer Retro Studios to start working on that project from scratch.

As a game publisher, Nintendo loves doing remakes and most recent entry in Metroid series, Samus Returns was even a remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus from Game Boy system, both of which were a critical and commercial success.

If recent claims are actually true then hopefully an early release window will be set for next year, may be February 2020. Aside from long-awaited Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Super Metroid remake for Switch will feel a lot like Samus Returns.

It has been reported and rumored several times since reveal of survival horror classic title Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 event that developer/publisher Capcom might be interested in a remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

In past, Spawn Wave has record of successfully leaking upcoming From Software release Elden Ring before official reveal at E3 2019. Besides, several other sources are reporting on the same rumor as well with a bit lesser skepticism.

Also, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi mentioned earlier that they are open to ideas of a remake for 1999 original PlayStation game if there is a significant fan-demand, which caused RE2Make a possibility and sold 4.7 million units so far.

RELATED: Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

Capcom took Friday the 13th of July in 2018 to tease fans by posting an image on Twitter of RE3 antagonist Nemesis, comparing him to notoriously relentless stalker Jason Voorhees, both chasing and haunting their victims persistently.

Then earlier this year, they mysteriously tease fans on social media by putting a shot of protagonist Claire Redfield from RE2 Remake standing next to a massive hole in a wall before arrival of Mr. X, a few months after its launch.

When Capcom was looking for RE Ambassadors within United States back in August 2019, people were hoping for confirmation on RE3 Remake but it turned out to be a brand-new Resident Evil game titled Project Resistance.

However, during Closed Beta program of this team survival multiplayer experience last month, some players started to notice Resident Evil 3 save room theme is being played in-game, which is a rather interesting nod to add for sure.

Moreover, lead character Jill Valentine and her fellow Raccoon City survivor Carlos Oliveira has briefly appeared in first trailer of the game to add more fuel to that spark of fire, having fans to speculate even harder for RE3Make.

If show host Geoff Keighley truly ends up announcing Resident Evil 3: Nemesis Remake at the big night of TGA 2019 next month, it is most likely to come out at some later point in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Crash Bandicoot Game Teased in PlayStation Ad

Latest PlayStation ad from Sony might have teased brand-new Crash Bandicoot game awaiting reveal.

When Crash Bandicoot franchise originally debuted back in 90's on PlayStation consoles, it almost became an unofficial mascot for Sony's gaming platform and even today, it is largely popular to a wide range of audience.

At one point at this ad titled "It's Time to Play" (0:11), Crash can be seen racing in his kart with an Aku-Aku mask floating alongside him and another never-before-seen one hovering around villain character Neo Cortex on that same frame.

Given how much it costs to make an advert like that, no will try to sneak in a non-canon mask there without any valid reason. Many have simply overlooked that small detail but then started spinning out ideas about it when noticed.

Nicholas Kole, artist for Activision owned subsidiary developer studio Toys for Bob then Retweeted the following.

Shortly afterwards, a fan on Reddit noticed a print ad for Crash Bandicoot on a bus as part of same campaign for PlayStation brand. They used modern rendition of his character model that is slightly revamped to look similar to PS original design.
