Phew, what a week it's been for Capcom and its fans. First, we had the leaked news that Street Fighter 4 was in development, along with announcements on a raft of new games like Dark Void, and updates to old classics, like Bionic Commando. Then we heard that PS2 classic Okami will be coming to the Wii next year. If that wasn't enough, this morning an explosion of new information from the Japanese publisher hit the web, including tonnes of new screenshots, trailers and release dates for loads of cool new Capcom games. It's all been so much, so fast, that we thought we'd bring it all together in one easy to digest place. Read on, and get very, very, excited.

Street Fighter 4

Genre: Beat-em-up.

Release date: Over a year away.

Platform: We don't know, but we guess PS3 and 360 are a given.

Excitement level: Through the roof. A game eight years in the making. Info is in scant supply, although the heavily stylised Okami-esque trailer perhaps suggests a less cartooney Street Fighter than previous outings. Check out Pro-G's Top 10: Things That Will Make Street Fighter 4 Great for our take on matters. Street Fighter fans all over the world rejoice. The king of fighters is coming.

Video: Hell yeah

Screenshots: None so far, and don't expect any for some time.

Devil May Cry 4

Genre: Action

Release date: February 2008.

Platform: PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Excitement level: Getting there. The only new info we have for Capcom's latest DMC is a release date: February 2008. Still no news on a PC release date though. We'll keep our ears to the ground.

Video: Devilsih.

Screenshots: You better believe it.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition

Genre: Action

Release date: Early 2008.

Platform: PS3

Excitement level: Hot. While not quite the exclusive PS3 owners were looking for, it's still encouraging news. The PS3 version will boast 16 multiplayer maps right out of the box and additional playable characters each with their own unique abilities. You'll also be able to play online over PSN with up to 16 players.

Video: Computer says no.

Screenshots: Oh yeah.

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles

Genre: Survival shooter.

Release date: 30 Nov 2007.

Platform: Wii.

Excitement level: Warm. Again, only new info is the release date. We'll see if the Wii Zapper helps this on-rails FPS attain greatness.

Video: You bet ya.

Screenshots: Zapper-tastic.

Dark Void


Genre: Sci-fi action

Release date: Winter 2008.

Platform: Not announced.

Excitement level: Warm. With so few details on this new IP it's hard to get excited. Capcom promises "fast-paced vertical combat mixed with mid-air and on-foot action". Winter 2008 seems a bit ambitious.

Video: Nope.

Screenshots: Double nope.



Genre: Action adventure.

Release date: Spring 2008.

Platform: Wii.

Excitement level: Hot. Could it be the second chance for a game that experienced disappointing sales on PS2? You'd think the Wii's motion sensing controls will lend itself well to the game's brush gameplay. Capcom said Okami on Wii is "sure to be the ultimate version of the game". We'll see soon enough.

Video: Not yet.

Screenshots: Nothing so far.

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

Genre: Puzzle

Release date: 7 Dec 2007.

Platform: Wii.

Excitement level: Warm. New trailer and gameplay footage suggests this cute and polished puzzler is coming along nicely. One to watch this Christmas.

Video: You bet.

Screenshots: You bet.

Bionic Commando

Genre: Sci-fi action.

Release date: TBA.

Platform: Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Excitement level: Hot. An update to the 20-year-old NES classic, Bionic Commando is a gritty sci-fi game that looks like it's aimed squarely at a Western audience. The main character, Nathan Spencer, has a bionic arm. Nice.

Video: Bionic.

Screenshot: Yep.

Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice

Genre: Adventure.

Release date: 2008.

Platform: DS.

Excitement level: Hot. New screenshots of popular court room adventure game suggest some crazy new characters and the return of old favourite Phoenix Wright. Looking good.

Video: Objection!

Screenshots: Sustained.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

Cammy street fighter

Genre: Beat-em-up.

Release date: 2008.

Platform: XBLA and PSN.

Excitement level: Hot. Of course we're disappointed this HD remix of cult beat-em-up Super Street Fighter 2 has been delayed till next year, but it looks like being for a good reason - get the lag down to a minimum. Will satisfy the appetite till SF4.

Video: Nothing official, yet.

Screenshot: Nothing great, but there are some screens and a mobile phone vid floating about the web.

Mega Man ZX Advent

Genre: Action.

Release date: 2008.

Platform: DS.

Excitement level: Lukewarm. Yet another Mega Man game, with yet another ridiculous name. This time you get play as either Grey or Ashe. Capcom promises an unlockable mode for the classic Mega Man which even longstanding fans will be impressed with.

Video: Mega yes.

Screenshots: Mega Man yes.

Commando 3

Genre: Arcade shooter.

Release date: TBA.

Platform: XBLA and PSN

Excitement level: Hot. Rock hard arcade shooter makes a return as XBLA and PSN downloadable titles. Will have three-player co-op online. Nice.

Video: Nada.

Screenshots: Commanding.

Rocketmen: Axis of Evil

Genre: Arcade shooter.

Release date: TBA.

Platform: XBLA and PSN.

Excitement level: Cold. Looks just like Commando 3. Why bother?

Video: Evil

Screenshot: More evil.


Talisman art

Genre: Strategy.

Release date: Winter 2007.

Platform: XBL, PSN and PC.

Excitement level: Warm. Talisman is a role playing game based on the real life Games Workshop board game. Supports up to four players online or offline. Nerd-tastic.

Video: None so far.

Screenshots: Just character artwork.

We Love Golf!

Genre: Sport

Release date: 2008.

Platform: Wii.

Excitement level: Warm. We'd love a better golf game on the Wii than the mini-game from Wii Sports. Whether this will be remains to be seen.

Video: Fore!

Screenshots: Five!.
