During Captivate 2010, Capcom’s yearly press event which was held earlier today on Hawaii,  the Japanese publisher revealed its line-up for 2011. Major titles that were revealed include Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, which was already leaked last week, Ōkamiden, a sequel to 2006’s Ōkami​, and sequel to 2008’s remake of Bionic Commando: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2.

More details regarding these games, as well as other games that were revealed at Captivate 2010 can be found after the jump.Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds will be released during Spring 2011 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It is a sequel to Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, which was released for arcades and the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. Ports for the Playstation 2 and first-generation Xbox arrived in 2002, and the game was re-released during the summer of 2009 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

Ōkamiden will be set many months after the events of the original Ōkami, which was released in 2006 for the Playstation 2, and in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii. The game will revolve around Chibiterasu, a small creature who appears to be somewhat similar to the protagonist of the first Ōkami, but apparently much younger. A release window for the game, which will be exclusively available on the Nintendo DS, was not specified.

Nathan Spencer is set for a return to the Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Store with Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 at some point during Q1 2011. The retro-styled sidescroller will pit Spencer against an enemy known as General Sabio, and include several new features such as the ability to jump.

Other titles that were revealed include the hack-‘n-slash title Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, which is set for a release in the United States during Fall 2010 for Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii. Samurai Heroes will be the fourth instalment in the Sengoku Basara series, and the second title to be released in the United States. The original Sengoku Basara was released in the United States under the name of Devil Kings in 2005.

Another Nintendo DS title scheduled for release late this year is Ghost Trick Phantom Detective, originally only intended for a release in Japan, but now also set to hit the United States and Europe. The game will feature a murder victim known as Sissel, who becomes a ghost suffering from amnesia and must discover the mystery behind his own demise. The game will be released during Winter 2010.

New information regarding Dead Rising 2 was also revealed. In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, which will be available exclusively on Xbox Live, players will be introduced to the protagonist of Dead Rising 2: Chuck Greene. This prologue to the game will be set two years after the events at the Willamete mall, and 2 before the events of Dead Rising 2. It was also announced that Dead Rising 2 will include a co-operative playmode.

Finally, packages of downloadable content were announced for Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV and MotoGP 09/10. Capcom stated that it will release ‘Silverstone Circuit’, a new track for MotoGP 09/10 and continue to update teams and liveries as the season progresses for free. The DLC for Lost Planet 2 will include two new maps, and will be available at launch on May 11th 2010. Finally, downloadable content for Super Street Fighter IV will include new costumes for characters (some of which will be available at launch), as well as a new Tournament mode that allows players to compete in a persistent championship against players from around the world.
