Nintendo Europe picks up four from Capcom

Chez Mario to distribute Megaman, Phoenix Wright, Viewtiful Joe games in beginning of 2006.


Four Capcom games are headed for a new continent next year, thanks to a new distribution deal with Nintendo Europe.

DS and GameCube owners across the pond will have a busy first quarter of 2006, when Nintendo brings them Capcom's Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and Megaman Battle Network 5: Double Team on the DS and Viewtiful Joe: Red Hot Rumble on the GameCube. However, the deal only covers distribution, as Capcom will continue to handle all development and publishing chores on the games.

Both Viewtiful Joe games are scheduled to ship in February, with Phoenix Wright following on March 10. The Megaman game's release date is still up in the air, though Nintendo says it will be released in "early 2006." The DS games will retail for about 30 pounds ($53), while Red Hot Rumble on the GameCube will run players about 40 pounds ($71).
