Interested to find out which monsters you will be facing in the upcoming Monster Hunter X? Well, Japanese publication Famitsu has given us a look at several of them. You will be tackling familiar creatures Lagiacrus (Monster Hunter 3), plus Shogun Ceanataur and Blangonga (Monster Hunter 2). The magazine also detailed one of the newcomers who is Raizecus. He is a ginormous dragonfly that emits sharp volts of electricity stunning the player.
Capcom France is saying that The Great Ace Attorney isn’t planned for a Western release. This piece of news comes from the publisher’s Twitter account, but hopefully it wasn’t referring to all Western regions. The game was released earlier this year in Japan for Nintendo 3DS. It is set during the Meiji Era in Japan and crosses over to London during the British Empire’s reign. At least we know that the recently-announced Ace Attorney 6 is coming to the West.
You have probably read by now that Ace Attorney 6 is coming via Capcom, but what we weren’t sure about is a western release. However, Capcom has now confirmed to Shack News that the game will be coming to the west on Nintendo 3DS. We should get some footage of the Japanese version of Ace Attorney 6 as it will be playable at this month’s Tokyo Game Show.
“Ace Attorney 6 (working title) will be coming to the west,” Capcom told ShackNews. “We’ll have more information on the Western release soon.”
Capcom has today confirmed that they has been busy developing a new game in the Ace Attorney series. Famitsu reports that Ace Attorney 6 will feature a new game system that enables quicker gameplay. Attendees at the Tokyo Game Show will be able to get hands on with the game later this month. The game is currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS.
Capcom has lifted the lid on the software titles it plans to showcase at this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2015. There are of course plenty of Monster Hunter related titles including Monster Hunter X – which is the next mainline Monster Hunter game. Of course, these are only the announced titles that the publisher and developer plans to show, so there could well be plenty of surprises for everyone. The Tokyo Game Show takes place on September 17th till September 20th.

UK news publication The Metro has had the opportunity to sit down and speak candidly with Hideki Kamiya, co-founder of Platinum Games. Despite what many people think Kamiya would love the opportunity to work alongside Capcom again as the company holds a special place in his heart. He says that despite the rumours he was never let go, or fired, from the Japanese developer and he left on his own accord. Here’s what he had to say about one of his favourite companies.
“However, I can honestly say that if there’s ever an opportunity, that makes sense for me or the studio, to work with Capcom again I would very much welcome that opportunity. Of all the publishers, not just Japanese publishers or partners, I can say with confidence that Capcom still holds a very, very special place in my heart and I love them dearly. It’s one of my favourite companies.”
“And why I say that is because they really helped shape me to who I am today. I spent a long amount of time with them and they helped me grow into who I am. They are one of the few remaining companies in Japan… you know we’ve seen so many other companies being merged and bought out and acquired but they remain the Capcom that they started out as. So seeing that strength and power that still is Capcom today is very reassuring. And it shows the confidence, it shows the love and passion of what they do. So I really do welcome the opportunity to work with Capcom again. Having said all of that, we are working hard on Scalebound 1. And if it does well, and everyone at Microsoft is excited to work on it, and they come to me and say, “We really want to make Scalebound 2 with you Kamiya-san” then I’m gonna be in a really hard place. Because I don’t know what is gonna help me decide who to work with, with Capcom on the other side.”
“There are people that think I was let go or fired from the team or from the staff at Capcom, but that is not what happened. It was just time for me to work with my partners and friends and colleagues, who I wanted to work with, and start a new venture and create new opportunities for ourselves. So I left of my own will and my own desire, to form Platinum Games with some other colleagues of mine.
So that is the truth, and I actually felt a little bad for leaving. Because Capcom tried to stop me leaving and joining my other partners at Platinum. So there’s a sense that if there’s ever a chance that we can not only work together but help bring new life into maybe a Capcom title, or work on a Capcom partnership, then, again, I would very much welcome the opportunity.”
“Many of us are still very much in touch with some of our old colleagues at Capcom. And in fact, right after I return from Gamescom I am meeting up with Jun Takeuchi [producer of Onimusha 3, Lost Planet, and Resident Evil 5 – GC] at Capcom and we’re gonna talk about what’s been going on. And this is long overdue.And so there are things that we always casually talk about, dreams that we want to realise, and I think it’s not just us. I know that there are fans out there that also want to see… maybe something perhaps happening between Platinum Games and Capcom. So… not alluding to anything or not suggesting anything, but if there is a chance, or if there is an opportunity to work together, that would be something I would proactively lean towards to see what they have in mind.”
