Capcom has had a bit of a bad run of spelling errors this year. First off, they spelled Revelations wrong on the Resident Evil: Revelations box and now, they have misspelled the word Mercenaries in a recent Resident Evil 6 ad.
Again??!! This is getting ridiculous now, like the 8th time.
Its like they don't care about their reputation anymore .
They got rid of that a while ago in exchange for more money...
Expect an announcement soon about a DLC Spellcheck.
Am I the only one thinking, "Big freak'n deal?" McDonald's is still in business, even after running a campaign ad that showed the front and back of a McRib while saying, "It's back...it's front." It happens, folks. Move on.
inveni0: They did? Thats awesome
If they did they wouldn't continue to screw gamers and Resident Evil fans.
I don't know about 8, but it is pretty ridiculous.
They just don't care anymore. I mean, no company does this...
This is just embarrassing now.
Can't believe the guy who does the translations isn't fired yet....
you'd think an effect of them being under the microscope and scrutiny like they are right now would make them clean up their act. guess I thought wrong
I believe you have to pay to see the correct spelling
Tsh. Stupid Capcom. They forgot the 'Q' again.
i think they spelled themselves capcpcom in another thing this year
It was in a Steel Battalion trailer if I'm not mistaken.
wow, thats pretty bad
It's "ch" from "chris". So, if you want to use him on mercenaries, you should pay...
Capcom's current reputation: 3rd graders who can't spell and make you buy dlc to experience the full game.
That would be a cool mode. Merchenaries. I don't know what it is, but it sounds neat.
Merchenaries is a $10 day one DLC to play as the Merchant from Resident Evil 4.
That would be pretty cool to have him included as a character in Mercenaries.
you have to pay each time you wanna play a map
I think someone needs to be informed as to the purpose of the Print Screen key. But yeah, Capcom really are messing up a ridiculous amount now.
Haha, yeah. It's ridiculous how many people don't know about some of the most essential things on a computer. Regarding the topic, I think they are now just trolling people...
Print screens can me edited, so most of the times they are fake. Photos are harder to edit (although possible) so it's a better way to capture these kind of things. Any photoshop user would see an edited photo, but it would be hard and sometimes impossible to see an edited print screen.
Could easily edit it and THEN take a photo of it.
Don't be silly, of course they can spell things correctly. We just need to pay them 800 Microsoft points and they'll release the right word in a dlc patch with some character colours, bargain!
Its a Japanese company doing english ads isn't it ? I'd love to see you do an add in Japanese for Japanese people. They'd more than likely laugh at your spelling or grammar.
Yeah... Capcom certainly don't have English speaking offices across the world... Oh...
that's why i asked is it a japanese company before my statement. But i looked into and yeah they have offices for capcom Europe and NA so it is just poor spelling haha
Maybe i'd hire a translator- a good one at that.
They're closet dyslexics.
I thought everyone knew that Sean Connery makes Capcom's adverts now.
Has anyone actually gotten a list of the words they spelt incorrectly because maybe their a pattern?
I saw a couple days ago that they got the release date wrong on one of their websites, it said 10.02.2.12 instead of 10.02.12
Is Capcom even trying anymore ?
I starting to hate this generation of gaming because of companies like Capcom, EA, and Activision. Yes they have brought some great games but the greed is getting ridiculous

Scamcom too busy counting all that money they scammed up to do spellings. Street fighter X Tekken was the last straw for me after finding out DLC characters are actually on the Disc. From now on I will only buy Scamcom games preowned.
Seems like CAPCOM is having quite the spelling problem lately but there doing a great job on Nickle and Dime-ing ppl.
oh ffs just boycott this fallen paladin of a company,
i hope someday they'll spell capcom to cRapcom
Youre spel suckk, its merchenaries!!!!
Somewhere, someone just got fired.
They might as well be spelling Capcom, Crapcom if this keeps happening.
guys, i got it... it's DLC content or "merhcandise." and they're mercenaries, so: merchandise + mercenaries = merchenaries you're welcome.
Oh they were just a few letters short of mer-cha-ching!neries
lmao were gunna merch to death
