Capcom unveiling two new games at E3

Capcom Unity Twitter feed reveals Japanese publisher is keeping two titles under wraps until next month's confab.

by

Unless it's derailed by a zombie uprising straight out of Resident Evil 5, next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo looks like a go. Today, the big three console makers reiterated their support for the event, which is looking to re-create the spectacle of E3s past with booth babes, 150-plus exhibitors, and more than 40,000 estimated attendees. Reps from its organizing body, the Entertainment Software Association, have publicly promsed that not even the prospect of a swine flu pandemic is slowing down its preparations.

Lost Planet was one of the big draws at Capcom's E3 2006 booth.

Besides the show floor, E3 is best known for being the site of numerous game announcements. So far, only a few game companies have dropped hints of what's in store. In recent interviews with GameSpot, id software's Todd Hollenshead promised several "surprises," and Sony Computer Entertainment's John Koller said there would be major PSP news--rumored to be a new, UMD-drive-free version of the handheld.

Now, shortly after showing its wares at the Captivate 2009 press event, Capcom has revealed it too will have some new games to show off at E3. In a Twitter post this week, staffers from the Capcom Unity community site said that at least a pair of new titles would be revealed at the convention, which kicks off June 2 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Responding to a direct message from a reader, an unnamed staffer twittered, "You think we have great titles now? Wait 'til we announce two more at E3!" No further clues about the games or timing of their unveiling were divulged. So far this year, the company has announced Dead Rising 2 and Lost Planet 2, along with Xbox Live and PlayStation Network versions of Marvel vs. Capcom 2. The original Dead Rising and Lost Planet were centerpieces of Capcom's booth at E3 2006, the last large-scale version of the event.

Any game from Capcom garden is a blessing. I personally hope for a new Onimusha, Dino Crisis, Resident Evil or maybe Okami 2. Time will tell. Until then "Happy gaming everyone" !!!

I REALLY hope it's NOT "Megaman X9". Capcom has driven the gameplay and story so deeply into the ground I don't WANT to see another title, it'll just ruin it even further.

Thought of some more (as if my list wasn't big enough already). I agree, I would also love to see a new Monster Hunter on the PS3.... A big sprawling adventure, massive open world, tons of monsters, a complex weapon/armor forging system with all kinds of unique looks. That would be amazing, it would be a great online game. Getting to go out on hunts with your friends. That would be so cool, a lot of fun, too. Come to think of it, I'd love a Sengoku BASARA title to end up on the PS3. Perhaps they can beat Koei's Samurai Warriors 3 for the first purely Sengoku-era button masher on current generation consoles. Also, hope they don't butcher it like they did when they released Devil Kings. I wouldn't mind seeing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, but I'd be more likely to get a real release of Sengoku BASARA here. It's an amazing game, but North American audiences aren't going to understand a good deal of the characters. I'd also want it ported to an actual console, like the PS3. And even if we don't get a pure Mega Man X game (MMX9 I guess), I'd love another MMX: Command Mission. MMX: CM was a great RPG, still one of my favorites. I think another MMX: Command Mission title is more likely than another Legends title, but having either would be great.

Myself I would like to see... Monster Hunter 4 for the PS3 ( I WANT THIS ONE THE MOST OF ALL ) or Dark Stalkers 4 for the PS3... or A NEW Ghosts and Goblins Game... or Street Fighter 4 vs Dark Stalkers 4 Game

AtlanticRock and Pfilosophy Duck Tales 2 was already out on the NES lol plus capcom said that these games are gonna rock more then the games already announced. So it could either be a new Strider game, Ghost n Goblins (Ghouls n Ghost), Megaman, MvC 3, Onimusha would be good but its just sorta like another RE game... or perhaps just some new IPs

I hope they have some more new IP's Lost Planet and Dead Rising were some of the best games from Capcom. Still waiting to see how Bionic Commando turns out. E3 is going to be much better then the last 2 years. I wish I was going, but I gotta save money this year. I'll probably go next year though.

"rumored to be a new, UMD-drive-free version of the handheld" Why is gamespot promoting a rumor that was already determined to be bogus.

Y'kno guys, Capcom really is consistent with its awesome games! Very few of Capcom's releases are mediocre (complete opp of MANY other companies). The only other company that I think comes close is Konami. Whatever these 2 new games are, I simply hope they are PS3 based. Them being awesome is a given :P. Personally I would love for the games to be a new (Vergil-centric) DMC or a new Onimusha.

''Bionic Commando'' shaping up very nicely so one of game could be ''Captain Commando'' or ''Strider'' but my guess it's ''Dino Crisis 4'' and ''Onimusha 5''.
