Confirmed: Ninja Theory Working on New Capcom Game

We're not going to call this a rumor, add a question mark to the headline, or even use the phrase "with a grain of salt." ConsolePress can confirm without a doubt that the talented team at Ninja Theory is working on a new game for Capcom, though what's even more intriguing than the partnership is what they'll be working on. (Capcom, Ninja Theory, PS3, Xbox 360)

whatever you do capcom, don't have talented devs like ninja theory reinvent Strider or anything, nooo we need more devil may cry games. /s blech!

edit-after playing heavenly sword and seeing enslaved, strider would be a perfect game for them. just covering my ass before the dmc fanboy onslaught.

Watch, it'll probably be
A remake of some long lost franchise.
TrevorPhillips  +   1823d ago
Are these the game you have in mind DJ

- Resident Evil 2
- Resident Evil 3
- Dino Crisis
- Onimusha
DelbertGrady  +   1823d ago
If it's any of those I hope it's Onimusha, since I love that series and think it would be the best fit for Ninja Theory.
ZombieAutopsy  +   1823d ago
I don't think NT should do a Onimusha game only because the games are based around Japan and it's history so it wouldn't really be right IMO.

Would be interesting if they had them make a Chaos Legion 2 even though I don't think many even know about the first.

heavenly sword x street fighter
mikeslemonade  +   1823d ago
They need Team Ninja instead of Ninja Theory. Ninja Theory is known for making great environments, good story, and slow gameplay which is similair to what capcom does namely in Devil May Cry. Team Ninja would help make a better fighting system which is where DMC is kind of broken.
DJ  +   1822d ago
I'd rather that they make a new Onimusha title
But it looks like DMC is in the cards. DMC 4 wasn't all that great, and really just felt like the PS2 iterations with better graphics. The size of the environments (and environment interactivity) was exactly the same though. I'm sure Ninja Theory will do wonders with that IP.
qface64  +   1823d ago
no it probably is devil may cry just like those rumors a while back said it would be
i really don't doubt it at this point

just great i guess i can expect the next DMC game to be 2 hours long
i pass!!!
Silly gameAr  +   1823d ago
I do hope it's multiplat though. Less whining from NT and I won't feel bad for buying this game full price like I did Heavenly Sword. Sorry I bought Heavenly Sword Ninja Theory. My bad.

Dino Crisis PLEAZ!!!
DJ  +   1822d ago
Can you image doing combos against Velociraptors? I'd be down for that.
Game-ur  +   1823d ago
You have to be ancient to remember Strider. Anyway I agree it would be a perfect fit for NT, I'm also optimistic, this is the first time CapCom outsourced development to a proven studio.
ABizzel1  +   1823d ago
I thought this said Team Ninja at first. Well they've proved they can make good action games, so my guess is it may be something like Strider, Onimusha, etc. I would Love a new Strider a good ninja game has been hard to find this gen (Ninja Gaiden Sigma's have been the only ones).
Foxgod  +   1823d ago
Onimusha is based around history?
Its pure fiction with a feudal japanese background.
What is Ninja theory currently working on?
Exactly, a game with a feudal chinese background (journey to the west).

Ninja theory would be perfect for Onimusha.
RockmanII7  +   1823d ago
The game won't come out until 2012 at the earliest, so I'll start caring then. But if true, that means that Enslaved will not have a sequel no matter how good it is.
hot4play  +   1823d ago
It could be Devil May Cry, Strider, or Onimusha...well, those are logical choices anyway.

Dino Crisis would be totally unexpected and cool... :0
TrevorPhillips  +   1823d ago
Is there a button where I can agree more than a million times with the guy above :)
Leonesaurus  +   1823d ago
OMG.... O___O Mark my words HERE and NOW... If they ever announce a new Dino Crisis game, for the first time in nearly 10 years, I swear to f-ing God I'm going to rip my clothes off, put on a sombrero, and ride a donkey into town like one of the three amigos, while swinging my cock up in the air like an f-ing lasso!!!!!! Yeah.... XD

With that insanity of joy being said, I would also LOVE to see the next Devil May Cry game VERY much as well!! My friend would agree with me 100% on that last one.
yewles1  +   1823d ago
Keep the AWAY from DMC and Onimusha. Just give'em Strider.
ZombieAutopsy  +   1823d ago
Damn these guys have 2 different publishers already this gen and now a 3rd, gotta say though i can't fvcking wait and i hope its DMC as i just bought HS and it's been one hell of a game and DMC seems like it'll fit their style.
TrevorPhillips  +   1823d ago
To my sake I hope it's these followng titles:

- Resident Evil 2
- Resident Evil 3
- Dino Crisis
- Onimusha
Focker420  +   1823d ago
I got bored with DMC after the second one. I know alot of you love it, I'm not bashing it. Its just something I personally wouldn't care about.

Onimusha on the other hand, yes please. Haven't heard that name in a long time.
qface64  +   1823d ago
well no duh listen to what your saying
"I got bored with DMC after the second one"

devil may cry 2 was total garbage not many people liked
N4BmpS  +   1823d ago
I think what qface64 was trying to say was your mistake was playing the second one, no one should play that really. I only liked 1,3 and 4 but hey to each his/her own.
Focker420  +   1823d ago
Well thats a little reassuring. I may have to give the other two a shot. I enjoyed the first, but the second killed my interest in the series
MiloGarret  +   1823d ago
It's usually agreed to be one of the worst sequels ever made. DMC 3 on the other hand is a great comeback.
ZombieAutopsy  +   1823d ago
They are telling the truth DMC2 was trash compared to the rest of them (i still liked it but less than the others), 1 and 3 were the best and 4 was good but i would of prefered a DMC1 remake or ever just a remastered version over it any day of the week.
N4BmpS  +   1823d ago
Well, I'd have confidence if they were to pick up DMC(5?), as long as they keep it mainly on Dante.

I hope it's a new IP
They seems to have some great story people over there at Ninja Theory and I'd love to see what else they could come up with.

Shouldn't Devil May Cry 5 already be in development?
ndibu  +   1823d ago
Sony sold the rights for Heavenly Sword to Capcom
It is going to be announced today. Heavenly Sword will be going multiplatform.
And then I woke up :( Sony!! I want Nariko back!!
ZombieAutopsy  +   1823d ago
I wish they that would happen too, not because i care about it being multi-plat just because i want an HS2 and i'll take it anyway i can....even a psp version at this point.

Give me DMC5!!! It's been over 2 years since DMC4.
DMC4 was ok... but DMC3:SE was near perfection.
XboxBoy  +   1823d ago
DMC3 SE was the shit, using Vergil was pure awesomeness, DMC5 should include him as well but lets see.
The_Devil_Hunter  +   1823d ago
All I want is a new Devil May Cry, free of Nero and just pure Dante. I hope Reuben Langdon is doing the voice work for it as well.
Leonesaurus  +   1823d ago
Pure Dante, No Nero <-- Agreed
I agree 100%!! Well said! =D
Baka-akaB  +   1823d ago
nero ? just like everything dmc 2 , it shall be forgotten and only mentioned in two small lines in the series recap at the beginning of the next game
jc48573  +   1823d ago
It's sad
you guys are all saying DMC, which really worries me. well, I don't think it hurts for them to try out dmc, but it better be damn good if they do. 60 fps...and please don't make dante look like that monkey in enslaved. To be honest, the red head in enslaved looks pretty hot though. the good thing about this is that I may stop at DMC4 and not care if another company is working on it just like I did with Silent Hill. I also agree that Capcom needs new IP and I rather spend my money on that than to wait for DMC5,6,7.....

Baka-akaB  +   1823d ago
i dont get how you can worry ... capcom in its state can't do a proper dmc anymore .

and with rival team from platinum showing them how it should be done , unless capcom wanna have yet another forgotten good franchise , outsourcing to a good studio is the way
MajestieBeast  +   1823d ago
3 hour dmc game with lots of dlc?
Karum  +   1823d ago
Whether it's Ninja Theory or someone else, I want you to give me a new Onimusha game please Capcom!
jay2  +   1823d ago
I said it back then, and I'll say it now, N T will tell us everything when Enslaves out the door, and all those people crying for a HD remake, the answer is 99.9999% no.
Foxgod  +   1823d ago
Devil may cry is a good series, but i would like to see it get rebooted.
Its a bit queer that there are characters in the series that look exactly like Dante....
Vergil was understandable, its his brother, the addition of Nero however.... what was that good for?
Devil May cry seems more like the Dante rangers right now.

Reboot plz :), no more Vergil, No more Nero, Just one Dante, and no more clone copy's.
Baka-akaB  +   1823d ago
they only need to never show and mention nero again , wich is easy
SuperDuperMario  +   1823d ago
To FoxGod
Vergil was understandable to have white hair and look like Dante because he was his twin, but Nero is the actual son of Vergil (according to the comics) hence why he looks very similar. As for this, I want to see Devil May Cry 5 at TGS, regardless if its a collaboration with NT or not.
EditorAtGNG  +   1823d ago
Damn. Haven't read the comics but, Dante's words in DMC4 regarding Yamato (Keep it, it should stay in the family) kinda confirms this. I just wished they spent more time developing the characters and the story. Apart from the insane hack&slash gameplay and the overall challenge, a story and proper narration would just benefit a new DMC game.
Katana Yamato  +   1822d ago
Actually its not a comic book, its a novel that's only available in Japan. And yea DMC needs a good story just like DMC 3 had. And its not 100% confirmed if Nero is Vergil's son. Its only implied, which is a huge difference.

I would like it if Nero wasn't in the game, but i doubt it since he was just introduced.

I really wish it was a Vergil spin-off game, since Dante is getting a bit stale and he really has no good story anymore for himself since he avenged his mother's death. That's why in DMC 4 he was just bumming around without a care in the world (he so needs his ass kicked).

Hopefully Capcom will show a teaser trailer of the game on the Tokyo Game Show in September.

Better not touch DMC5
No offense, but all NT's whining and pissing on previous games makes me not want to buy any games from them. I would hate for DMC to be tainted by their childish behavior. If Dino Crisis 3 hadn't gone to the Xbox leaving a whole Playstation fanbase twiddling thumbs, I would be more adamant about not being that either. Shame DC3, for shame....
GenoZStriker  +   1822d ago
I hope it's not DMC5 because Ninja Theory's games play much different than the DMC does. Simply play Heavenly Sword and DMC and you'll notice the difference immediately. They'll only kill the series, so I'm hoping it's their own game.
