New Devil May Cry Revealed by Ninja Theory
Our regulars may remember that we caught wind on a secret parallel project that Ninja Theory were running in parallel with Enslaved. Subsequent rumours appeared to suggest that this project might be none other than the next Devil May Cry... and Capcom have just announced that this is right on the money.
Entitled simply DMC, this new stylish hack & slash promises to deliver a little backstory to set up Dante's larger-than-life character. Here's what we know, fresh from the press release.
“Set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC will depict a duplicitous world where nothing is ever as it seems and the line between good and evil is constantly blurred. Spurred into action by the promises of a trusted relation, Dante bursts into this world intent on revenge at any cost.”
It's far too soon to talk release dates, but naturally DMC has been confirmed for both Xbox 360 and PS3. We'll keep you updated by the wire.
SCEE Confirms ICO & Colossus HD
Yet Another rumour has been confirmed courtesy of the Tokyo Game Show! We've been howling about the possibility of a PS3 HD revision of Team ICO's classic titles for months now... and finally, the poorly kept secret has been let out of the bag.
“We can confirm that we will be releasing an HD version of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. More information will follow during the Media Briefing at TGS tomorrow ”- SCEJ Rep to VG247
It's about damn time... and we'll be bringing you the details tomorrow. [Thanks, VG247]
Suda51/ Shinji Mikami Crossover is Shadow of the DAMNED
Famitsu magazine has spilt the beans on the crossover project from the (worrying) minds of Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami. We promised you that we'd deliver the details as soon as we heard anything... so here goes.
It's entitled Shadow of the DAMNED; and will feature motorbikes, demonslaying and a hellacious romp through the underworld. We'll know more after the EA presser later on today- but at least you're now ahead of the curve! Shadow of the DAMNED apparently has a Summer 2011 release date, and we'll keep you informed after EA reveals the full details. [via 1UP]
Dead Rising 2: Case West Announced
Xbox 360 owners have been able to get their teeth into an early taste of Dead Rising 2 with the exclusive Case 0 prologue... but Capcom has now announced that their upcoming survival horror sequel will also have an exclusive epilogue to round things off.
Due to our incessant begging for some closure for Frank West (the beloved protagonist of the original Dead Rising), the intrepid photographer will be back in the imaginatively-titled Case: West. I guess there's a case to be made that this is slightly spoileriffic... but hey, we're just glad to see Frank back.
