Monster Hunter X is finally available for purchase in Japan and will undoubtedly be a massive success for developer, Capcom. Tilmen from Tilmendomination has managed to get his copy on time and has given us a look at the first 75 minutes of the retail title. As I’m sure you are already aware, we have yet to hear when we will get Monster Hunter X in the west. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too long!
Capcom is one company that I’m sure Nintendo fans would be pleased to have onboard for the forthcoming Nintendo NX platform. Speaking to investors recently the Japanese firm said that they are considering developing for new platforms such as the NX and the PlayStation VR but they have nothing to currently announce.
Q. What are your plans involving new platforms (NX, PlayStation® VR and others) and the timing of launches of Capcom titles for these platforms?
A. Our R&D operations are working on technologies for many types of hardware. We will consider the possibility of creating technology demonstrations and making versions of titles under development for these new platforms. At this time, we have not announced any plans for specific products or the timing of a product launch.

If you are new to the series, or have just picked the game up, you can download all the prior downloadable content for free too. If this piques your interest then be sure to check out the trailer above for all the juicy details.
Nintendo never stops surprising me with what they put out on YouTube — their latest upload is seemingly an advertisement for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, a game release on Nintendo 3DS in February of this year. The twist? The video focuses on live-action role-playing children as they take down a huge monster. I doubt that this video will ever make it to TV screens, but then again this is Nintendo — who knows.
Capcom will be opening a new cafe in Koshigaya, Saitama prefecture, Japan. The cafe’s opening theme will be Monster Hunter X and will later feature other themes from Capcom’s range of titles. The cafe will feature themed food items, menus and exclusive merchandise.
The company also have a bar named Capbar, and a Resident Evil-themed grill named Biohazard Cafe & Grill S.T.A.R.S – both based in Tokyo.
The opening date for the new Capcom Cafe is November 20th so if you have plans to visit Japan in the future, it might be worth paying a visit if you’re in the area.
The GameBoy Advance remake of Capcom’s classic beat ’em up is available now on the North America Wii U eShop for $7.99. Originally released in 2001, Final Fight One includes stages from the original arcade version of Final Fight that were not in the SNES port, along with hidden playable characters based on the Street Fighter Alpha 3 renditions of Cody and Guy.
One draw back of the Virtual Console release is the absence of the two-player cooperative mode that was available via the GameBoy link cable. Still, the game is sure to deliver an exciting single-player experience, which you can get a glimpse at in the trailer below.
One of the announcements that graced the stage at this year’s Tokyo Game Show was that Ace Attorney is getting an anime and it will air on April 2016 in Japan. Capcom wouldn’t reveal any details, but they did showcase key characters which include Phoenix Wright, Maya Fey, and Miles Edgeworth. We should get more details regarding the Ace Attorney anime in the near future.
