This year, Capcom U.S.A., Inc. arrives at E3 with a selection of new and exciting games from some of its best-loved franchises. Street Fighter V expands the legendary competitive fighting series with an exciting new entry, and the publisher spotlights three additional releases that put new spins on critically acclaimed favorites.
Coming exclusively to PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PC, Street Fighter V is the latest edition in the influential fighting game series. Street Fighter V runs on Unreal Engine 4 and features returning combatants like Ryu, Chun-Li, and M. Bison engaging in tense one-on-one battles. Capcom plans to connect the platforms' online components so that all players may duel against each other in a single community--and the Capcom Pro Tour is available for the best of the best to compete in person. A release date for Street Fighter V has not yet been announced.
Mega Man Legacy Collection reflects on that platforming-action series' origins, delivering a downloadable set of the classic title's first six games, which were originally released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Each game has been remastered in HD for a crisp look, and the package includes a new challenge mode, as well as a museum with special behind-the-scenes content. Developed by Digital Eclipse, Mega Man Legacy Collection will release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC this summer, with a Nintendo 3DS version following in the winter.
Before that, Capcom fans can get a burst of pulse-pounding action with Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, which releases on June 23. The downloadable game updates the original 2008 entry with 1080p resolution support and updated textures. The remastered Xbox One, PS4, and PC versions are expanding to add more playable characters, modes, and player costumes.
Capcom has yet another significant update on the horizon: a remastered edition of Resident Evil 0, which first hit GameCube in 2002. This version of the survival-horror prequel features enhanced graphics, along with remastered surround sound and an optional new control scheme. It will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in early 2016.
