• For PC: Street Fighter IV in Japan on July 2

    July 2, 2009. That’s when Street Fighter IV comes out for the PC in Japan. Of course Capcom hasn’t bothered to announce a release date for North America, because that would be far too useful and welcome.

  • Mega Man II for iPhone: it sucks

    How to kill buzz: After releasing an excellent retro-remake (say Mega Man 9), offer a poorly-ported version of perhaps the series’ most treasured game. Let’s just look at the basics, here. In porting a game from the original system, you might want to consider whether said system had a joystick or a D-pad, and then use that. I guess Capcom felt this was a better solution.

  • Capcom talks PC gaming, digital distribution

One market they’re still trying to break open is the PC. This interview with… Read More

  • Capcom unleashes Street Fighter IV and a Visa card

    In conjunction with the launch of Street Fighter IV, Capcom announced the Capcom Unity Visa card.
