At it’s annual media showcase Captivate, Capcom has announced three new titles that will make their way onto the market within the next twelve months. The announcements included a new IP known as Dragon’s Dogma, a spin-off based on Dead Rising 2 featuring Frank West, known as Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, and finally, the definitive version of Street Fighter IV, known as Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. More information regarding these games is included after the jump.

Dragon’s Dogma will be an open-world game featuring a party of three characters that set out to defeat a legendary dragon. The game will be based on the engine that also powered Resident Evil 5 and Lost Planet 2, and is being developed by the creators of Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4. The game will be released at an unspecified date in 2012, for PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record features the protagonist from the original Dead Rising, Frank West, as he experiences the Fortune City outbreak. The game will form an alternative storyline, and features new enemies, weapons, abilities, as well as access to a previously inaccessible attraction in Fortune City. The game will also feature changes to the Save mechanics, as well as multiple changes to the cooperative multiplayer experience. The game will be released for PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 this autumn.

Finally, Capcom announced that Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition will be making its way to the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in June. This edition will feature new characters, an enhanced replay channel, and a major balancing update. The game will be released online on June 7th, and in stores in Europe and North America on June 24th and June 28th respectively. For those who already own the regular version of Street Fighter IV, the update will be available at a price of $14.99, or 1200 MSP.

  1. I am interested in their new IP, it sounds interesting.

    Frank West is always cool, so I will look into the DR2 spinoff.

    I am not surprised by an arcade version of SSFIV, but I might pick this one up as I didn’t get SSFIV.

  2. Oh Capcom, always trying way too hard to get my dollar. Just keep releasing good (original) games, and you will get my dollar. Too bad you haven’t been able to do that for a while.

    1. Well yeah, it is always harder to sell new IPs. However, they have some really cool looking games coming out in the next year with Asura’s Wrath and now Dragon’s Dogma (the trailers looked awesome).

      MVC3 was good, and Dead Rising 2 was for the most part, but I agree that they put out way too many different irritations of the same game, and charge way too much for trivial DLC.

      I am also waiting on Street Fighter X Tekken, to see how they make that work (the formula isn’t original, but the cross-over with Tekken is).

      1. I am actually looking forward to Tekken X Street Fighter more than vice versa. I’ve had my fill of Street Fighter. In fact, I think I’ve had my fill of 2D fighters for a while (although Skullgirls looks really good for a downloadable title), and Dead Rising 2 was the most frustrating game I’ve ever played (screw you psychos). Now they are rereleasing all of their old titles for a pretty penny (even the 3DS title is just the mercenaries mode).

        Asura’s Wrath trailer was super cool, I really like the art style. I haven’t seen Dragons Dogma yet, and DMC has made me re-interested in DMC games (I hated DMC4).

        1. Yeah, I too am more interested in Tekken X Street Fighter myself.

          They are making Resident Evil Revelations which is an all new entry into the series alongside of Mercenaries. I will not get Mercenaries cause I don’t want to pay that much for that mode; I want story, not timed missions.

          The new DMC has me off put, cause from that trailer the new Dante was sluggish in his attacking and his look is just too…bleh.

          Go watch the Dragon’s Dogma trailers, they are cool looking.

          1. I’m afraid RE Revelations will just be Left 4 Dead… or actually… Resident Evil Survivor done right. Plus, the game is not canon. I know that is super geeky of me to say, but I like the story’s of the first 4 games (RE4 kinda felt like a new game and a new world).

            I like the look of the new dante. A Sid Vicious-esque character would be a lot better than the southern accented Dante from DMC4. But at the end of the day, it will come down to how rediculous and stylish the combat is (and Bayonneta set the bar extremely high).
