Nintendo247 - Capcom has just announced via Instagram that 15 new eShop games will be coming to the 3DS and Wii U. Which games are you guys interested in picking up?
Breath of Fire FTW!
Yeah, that is going to be awesome on the Wii U!
Too bad they are making a sequel that is a mobile spin-off :\ The game goes downhill if you let it.. and they let it.
Actually it feels like they tried really hard to make it go downhill. VI looks very generic. BoF has always been anything but. Until now.
"Downhill" that pretty much explains almost any major franchise. It's the future of gaming. The core fans have lost a lot of relevance for the sake of a company's short term gain.
I would love to see them release a new breath of Fire as an arcade title and pay homage to the first to Breath of Fire games and all their old school glory.
Breath of Fire- Mine! Demons Crest- Mine! Gargoyle Quest 2- Mine! Mega Man 5,6,7 and X3- All Mine!!! Might get Mighty Final Fight. Not sure yet... screw it... Mine! lol Capcom is bring out some Awesome/Rare games for the virtual console. Virtual Console is starting to have some very compelling titles (IMO).
Man, sharing is caring :/
Damn those games on Wii U are all mine.
Ouch my wallet!
Oooooooo, I hope this is Capcom's way of hinting to Nintendo; I REALLY hope Nintendo takes that hint, if so...
Heck I wouldn't mind Activition buying capcom... cmon any company take that chance... except you EA of course
No, not Activision. We'd never see a well-done port of any Capcom franchise if Activision tried to do one for Wii U. There'd almost always be some content missing, and I'm sick and tired of bad third party ports.
My collection is only getting better
I hate that the title doesn't clarify that these games are all Virtual Console...
Capcom is def my favorite gaming company, I miss the old Capcom :(
Unfortunately they are dead now. Releasing very limited crap now. Hence the new nickname Crapcom. I miss them too. They were a long time favorite of mine. Now they are a shadow of their former selves.
Aside from their focus on mobile, they haven't done too many Crapcom-like things lately. No controversies on DLC as far as I know.
I Do hope Sony or Nintendo buys them. They have lost their way, like so many of the other good devs/pubs. remember Square-Soft? @randomass171 They did mess up with the whole Cammy clone reveal. I like the fact SkullGirls poked fun at that. Their DR3 DLC was a joke of themselves too, which could be a blunder(?). Also, it seems DR3 is no longer a One exclusive, since it is coming to PC.
these are not new lieing >.>
Capcom you need to revive Onimusha!
Yes! They really, really, really need to. One of the best game series of all time.
A current Onimusha would be divine! He'll I will settle for an HD remaster in the interim.
Yeah I'd definitely take an HD remaster. Ever since my old PS3 died I haven't been able to play PS2 games at all and I've really been missing Onimusha.
I suggest the Bayonetta approach. HD remaster bundled with the sequel.
Nintendo, if you want to rescue the Wii U, then get out there and get some Capcom shares. Think about all their characters, their franchises, as nintendo exclusives, that would definitely make things easier for nintendo with the Wii U and every future console. Think about Resident Evil, with Nintendo it could finally go bacl to its roots...
*clenches chest* damn, almost thought there was a new Breath of Fire game coming. ^I concur, they need to bring the Onimusha series back.
Dissapointed. I though BoF and Megaman Zero for 3DS too, but it's only for WiiU. Personally i prefer playing both games on my 3DS. Seriously, i don't know what's wrong with nintendo and 3DS eshop. Lately nintendo is like trying to abandon it.
all the more reason a unified account system for wiiU and 3ds cant come soon enough theres no reason all ds, gba, gb, nes, snes, n64 games arent available on vc for gamepad and 3ds...that seriously needs to happen within the next year
Can't agree more with you mate. I mean, it's obvious 3DS can handle those SNES/GBA games perfectly fine, so why 3DS got left out? Nintendo seriously need to learn from Sony/MS about a unified account. Because next year i'm planning to buy a WiiU and i don't want to create another account just to buy separate games for WiiU and 3DS.
It's less about abandoning the 3DS and more about re-focusing on the Wii U, because it needs the focus more. The right games practically make the 3DS sell itself, but the Wii U needs a laser-focused effort behind it now to get it up over that sales hill and into that smooth ride of profitability.
I don't think people will suddenly buy a WiiU just because it has classic games from SNES/GBA. Just like people don't buy a Vita because it can play PS1 classic / PSP games. Beside, if 3DS got the same virtual games just like WiiU, that means more profit for nintendo / capcom right? There's like 45 million+ people who owned 3DS (including me) compare to 6 million+ WiiU.
I agree that they need a unified account system, but it's actually smarter to wait on that for a bit. I know you're probably shaking your head right about now, but think about it for a second; if people had the option of getting any of those games on 3DS, do you think they'd ever bother playing them on the Wii U? Do you think they would even try to get it for that system and play it there often? For that matter, on a personal level, would you? Or anyone you know? If the answer is no, then that's why they're doing it this way; they want to get more focus on the Wii U's library right now. They want it to sell. And you have to admit that the GBA and SNES has far more games on them combined that evoke nostalgia and the urge to replay them, than the PSP/PS1 do. Nintendo's trying to take advantage of that in order to spin the spotlight onto the Wii U for a while. If they were available on the 3DS AND Wii U, it wouldn't be much different than putting them ONLY on the 3DS; the Wii U, the system that needs the attention of really great games from the past and the future, would be left out in the cold by gamers, if they could just get these great back-log games elsewhere. Short-term profits via putting it only on the 3DS, isn't going to help the Wii U become profitable, and right now, that's their MOST IMPORTANT GOAL. It's what they NEED to have happen, and every step they take towards that end, is a good thing. The 3DS is already well established; if it gets into a slump, it won't take much to get it back onto its feet. But the Wii U is in a slump right now, and it needs, as I said, a laser-like focus on it to pull forward. Which means it needs these games more than the 3DS does. Wii U's recovery is priority #1 right now, for Nintendo, no matter how much sense or how much more profit it makes them to put it on the 3DS.
I would trade all of those games to get Monster hunter 4 on Wii u- Has there been any talk of that or they just going to keep itinerary 3DS
Still just 3DS, unfortunately. And unless something good happens to Capcom to pull them out of their slump, or to get their Monster Hunter series tied more tightly to Nintendo systems, it's unlikely we'll see MH4 hit the Wii U any time soon...
That's a bummer - my son has a 3DS but I just can t imagine playing MH on it particularly w out dual sticks so I won t try Maybe one day.......
MEGA MAN MEGA MAN MEGA MAN!!
I think it's going to upset a lot of people, but I do believe Nintendo is going to step up and purchase a major stake in Capcom. Capcom and their IP's could single handedly help the WiiU and future Nintendo consoles have its own ecosystem of varied titles.
"Capcom Announces 15 New Games..." *Article Pic is a Super Nintendo game* Whelp, I have somehow traveled back in time.
I almost forgot about that game. I still remember playing it as a kid and thinking to myself, wow 2010 is so far into the FUTURE. Well, it's 2014 now and where the hell is my shiny metallic space suit like what Ken was wearing in the game??
