Capcom Essentials bundles together 5 games, still no plans to bring SF to Wii U
It looks as though the popular publisher/developer Capcom, will be packaging together 5 of their must-play games along with a traveling bag in a recently announced Capcom Essentials bundle.
Arriving October 8 for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Capcom Essentials will set gamers back the full retail price of $59.99, resulting in around $12 per game. As for which games will be included exactly, the collection will feature Resident Evil 6, Devil May Cry 4, Dead Rising 2, a download code for Mega Man 10, and Super Street Fighter IV.
Speaking of Street Fighter, however, the series’ executive producer Yoshinori Ono continues to disappoint Wii U owners by revealing there are still no plans for the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV or any Street Fighter title to hit the console.
Ono-san tweeted back in July that the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC were the only consoles at the moment to be receiving the latest Street Fighter, with no plans for the Wii U. Well, a month later the executive producer still has no good news, as he replied to a question entailing will any Street Fighter hit the Wii U, tweeting, “we apologize that we don’t have plan [about] it at this moment.”
Anyways, be sure to leave your thoughts on the aforementioned news in the comments down below!
I actually like DMC & DmC for that matter but your comment really made me lol. Thanks, I needed that. XD
As stupid of an idea I think it is for these collections it would've at least made sense to put these on the Wii U seeing as it's a NEW console that doesn't already have these games. Fucking joke man...
It started on arcades, the first one did. Then SF 2 came out for BOTH SNES and GENESIS. If anything, the more SF games ended up on Sega and Sony consoles after 2. Except SF Alpha on the SNES which was a huge surprise. This is still pretty bad seeing the Wii U getting the shaft, even TTT2 got a Wii U port.
I'm 30, have a wife and kids, work, go to school, and live quite an eventful life. The guys from high school that I knew who loved anime are still very much single and very much living with their mommas. I know what I'm talking about. Anime was ok as kid, but there comes a time to realize you're watching a cartoon. And the DMC series is definitely like an anime. Mario and Dark Souls both come from Japan and they don't seem anime-ish at all, so I'm not holding a prejudice against Japanese games, just crappy ones.
your so naive it hurts. i fail to see a connection between DMC the game and anime. its Japanese, thats about it. clearly youve never even given any type of anime show a chance and are completely close minded because if you had, you would see how pointless your argument is. is the game bad? maybe, thats your opinion. i could care less about you being right on that one, but pulling the "loser anime fans" card is just childish. theyre two completely different forms of entertainment and just bc bashing anime may be "cool" in your high school, i think youll find that when you grow up a bit youll start to realize that even though YOU may not like something it doesnt mean its garbage. it just means you need to open your mind a little more and give unfamiliar things more of a chance.
"Games that started out on Nintendo..." Capcom first released games for Arcades and then later moved on to making games for Nintendo consoles. Also,SF4 is just as good or in fact BETTER than SF2 or Alpha as it has more characters,matches are way fairer and the inclusion of Online makes playing against new players a lot easier.
Really Capcom? Resident Evil 6 is an "Essential" Game? You could literally have put any other numbered RE game in its spot and it would have been a better choice.
Meh, I don't see much loss here. It's just re-released games. If you were a big fan of any of these franchises, you would own them by now.
All the other games are better than DMC4, cuz that whole franchise sucks (weird controls, dumb gameplay, stupid cameras, etc.) I think that franchise is popular only because all the anime loving emos latched onto it like the second coming of their momma's teets. Even with that being said this whole thing is still a rip-off.
Its sad when games that started out on Nintendo just abandon it years later. Then again, not much of a loss. The SF series just isn't as good as it use to be back in 2 and Alpha days
Resident Evil 6 - ugh, no thanks Devil May Cry 4 - HD collection of 1-3 is far superior Dead Rising 2 - currently free for xbox gold (until the end of the month) a download code for Mega Man 10 - ok game, but 9 is more enjoyable and Super Street Fighter IV - I think I got this for 400 MS points a couple of months back.
So overall, I'll be avoiding this completely.
don't feed the troll, hes to stupid to respond anyway
How is Dead Rising 2 crap? With the exception of it's major lack of Frank West-ness, it's still as, if not more so, functionally Zombi-refic as the original.
AND DAMMIT! I liked Mega Man 10. Sorry, but I am a casual pussy, and I appreciate easy mode.
I don't really care for any fighting game except for Smash Bros and Dissidia (Underrated game), but I feel bad for Wii U owns wanting Street Fighter, and for some reason not owning another system.
One thing I don't get is people say Capcom is against the Wii because of this they released Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and RE:Revelations on the WiU u and if they really hated it they never would of let Megaman be in SSB4
Capcom gonna Capcom. Reskinning and reselling at an outrageous price while waiting for someone else to make a fan-based hit based on one of their golden-years franchises.
except maybe DMC4 it's all crappy games re-released that only morons will buy..
This collection is a joke. MM 10 was on sale for 5, SSFIVAE was on sale for 10 and DR 2 is currently free. If you don't have gold, I could see how you would be interested, but non backwards compatibility means this essentials will be obsolete the month following. One more move that will lead capcom to believe people don't support their franchises that are missing...mostly Mega Man
And third party developers continue to dig the Wii U's grave by not making games for it.
So you have to spend extra money upgrading. Obviously.
WHY THE SHIT IS IT NOT ARCADE EDITION?!?
