Capcom ransomware leak reveals Monster Hunter Rise & Stories 2 coming to PC and new Ace Attorney Collection for Switch

Sadly the Capcom Group networks were compromised by ransomware recently but thankfully no customer information was breached. The details of what was found have been published online and are freely available to view (we won’t be posting links) What will be of interest to you is that Capcom is planning a new Ace Attorney collection for the Nintendo Switch platform, which will please fans fo the franchise who were disappointed that we haven’t received one as yet. The Nintendo Switch exclusive Monster Hunter Rise will also be coming to PC in 2021 along with Monster Hunter Stories 2. On the Switch it has been revealed that amiibo support has been planned.

Summary of the leaks (Via Reset Era):

  • Resident Evil Village details (Current-gen release, April launch, Demo before release)
  • New multiplayer Resident Evil referred to internally as Project Highway/Village Online. It’s a Battle Royale of some sort.

  • New project codenamed “GUILLOTINE” for Switch in February, other platforms in May
  • Unannounced project “Reiwa” in May, no platforms mentioned

  • Source Code for DMC2 and Umbrella Chronicles
  • Stadia paid Capcom $10 million USD to put RE7 and RE8 on the platform. Sony paid $5 million USD for RE7 VR/timed DLC/demo exclusivity.



  1. Whoa. This is big. I’m sure someone will get in trouble for the leak. Happy to see timed exclusives on Switch

    1. Most certainly. They didn’t just leak information, they are asking for millions or they’ll leak more. Probably think they are protected by a VPN. We’re going to see some actually Jail time for this.

  2. Holy sh*t! If the Ace Attorney thing is true, we’ll finally get The Great Ace Attorney games localized!!! And if Rise is coming to PC, I may wait and not get the Switch version. Ugh but i probably won’t be able to wait. Hopefully I can transfer data somehow (probably not)

    1. The leak doesn’t say anything about the games being localized, though… The fact that the name remains “DGS” (the abbreviation for the Japanese name) doesn’t bode well, at the very least.
      *Well, time will tell; if the games are being localized, that would be fantastic news!

      1. I can’t reply to a reply. Sherlock himself is public domain, but not all of the other Sherlock characters are. So they either would buckle down and pay to use the characters, or they change a couple of the characters names. I doubt Sherlock himself would get a name change.

    1. I’m interested in the official translation for the first game, as the Fan translation wasn’t as on par as Investigations 2. They where a little too direct with the translation of the game and it make a good chunk of the dialog just “what do you mean”.

      1. That’s a bit disappointing to hear since Investigations 2 was excellent and I’d argue indistinguishable from any of the other official translations, but this makes me even more excited about the official localization.

  3. Well crap. Kinda makes it hard to decide on which version of Rise to go for……

    But who am I kidding? I’m a MonHun + Ninty fanboy so unless I can transfer saves – doubt since it isn’t done with World – I’ll probably buy it ASAP on the Switch.
