Capcom Brings The Big Guns To The Table
Tuesday, April 12, 2011 Leave a comment
I mean, fireballs… and swords to the table.. as neither of these games feature any kind of guns… Either way, it’s a good day to be at Capcom, where the company just shed some light on two incredible games coming out soon: Street Fighter X Tekken and a new IP from the creators of Devil May Cry 4 and Resident Evil 4, called Dragon’s Dogma. Though arguably a pretty terrible name, the game looks fucking awesome; it’s like Monster Hunter, but actually looks fun to play!
Dragon’s Dogma is an open world action adventure game, where you hunt down mythical beasts of Greek and Norse mythology. Hydras, Griffins, Dragons, Harpies you name it. The fighting mechanics actually look interesting, I’ve got a feeling this isn’t one of those games where you just press X until the credits roll. The gameplay trailer shows the player grabbing onto a Griffin’s tail and climbing up it’s body mid-flight, being snatched up by harpies, and taking out each of a hydra’s head with fire arrows. The game’s a looker too, sporting some damn sexy graphics to boot. Though Capcom hasn’t commented on the multiplayer just yet, based on the gameplay it’s safe to assume we’ll be slicing dragons with our buddies in a co-op mode, at least we can hope. I’ll have to keep my eye on this one, due out early next year. Check some trailers here:
Check out some gameplay trailers from Street Fighter X Tekken, Capcom’s newest mash-up fighter released this morning. To my surprise, there’s a bit of a tag-team element to this fighter, not unlike the Marvel vs Capcom series:
Hopefully we’ll get a chance to go hands on with these titles at E3 this June.
