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.
