It looks as though Capcom is working through its franchises as the company has announced a Devil May Cry collaboration for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Capcom says that now in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, your Felynes can rock Dante’s jacket and wield the electrifying Alastor. We heard last week that there’s also a Street Fighter 2 collaboration for the game.
Are you ready for this? Well it turns out that there’s going to be a Street Fighter 2 collaboration in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The news was confirmed today by Capcom who said that you’ll be able to equip your Felyne Palicoes with classic Blanka and Chun-Li outfits from Street Fighter II in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Be sure to check it all out in the video embedded below.
Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who has worked on Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, has announced that he has an announcement to make soon about an unexpected title that will get everybody hyped. There’s no mention of formats so the Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS could be in the running. Either way we should find out more about the game shortly.
Wanted to check out Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies but weren’t prepared to pay the digital retail price? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that Capcom have lowered the price of the game in the United States and you can now download it for the reasonable price of $15.

New details have arrived on the intriguing Luigi’s Mansion Arcade game. Developed by Capcom, the arcade version was running through a testing period from October 30 to November 3, as we reported yesterday. But since the spooky season and its testing run has passed, Games Talk has supplied a few details on the upcoming arcade game.
Translated by members from NeoGaf, the arcade title will be based on Luigi’s Mansion 2 for the Nintendo 3DS and playable only in a first person perspective. Luigi, however, will appear in cutscenes, so fans will still be able to glimpse his shaky poses in perilous situations. Gloomy Mansion is the only confirmed stage so far, but Capcom is sure to announce others in the future.
Players will be able to get to grips with the controls from an in-game tutorial from Professor Elvin Gadd, while at the helm of a poltergust-shaped controller, which sucks in ghosts if shaken. A start button and bomb button are also located on the Luigi’s Mansion arcade tower. According to Games Talk, Capcom are looking to release the arcade game by Summer 2015 in Japan.
Yup, you read that headline right, Capcom is developing an arcade version of Luigi’s Mansion. The snazzy cabinets have been spotted at several test locations during the Halloween period. The location test ran from October 30th until November 3rd. What we aren’t sure about is whether this is a brand new Luigi’s Mansion game or simply a redesigned port of the GameCube or Nintendo 3DS versions. Either way, let’s hope that it eventually comes to the Wii U.
