Capcom Updates Latest Release Schedule

Big names dated.

Posted by Staff
Capcom?s release schedule for the next several months is looking monstrously well-endowed after the latest update on its official website. Although the dates provided are the official US dates, us euro-blighters shouldn?t have to wait too long. It's highly unlikely that PAL conversions would be too far behind, as Capcom won?t want to miss out on the inevitable Christmas buying frenzy. Alongside a fresh platter of Mega Man adventures and the return of classics like Street Fighter 2, Devil May Cry and Resident Evil, Capcom are also offering a tempting selection of brand new IP's in the run up to the festive period. Shadow of Rome is generating a good deal of excitement, and Monster Hunter and Capcom Fighting Jam are sure to find plenty of homes when they eventually hit the shelves.

Unfortunately, there is no mention of a Viewtiful Joe 2 release date, and no mention of a PS2 version of Killer 7. That?s not to say that these projects have been canned, but they are unlikely to appear anytime before next spring.

Here?s the stateside Capcom schedule in full:

Rawk on Capcom!

I don't know which title I'm more excited about. I'll definately pick up Fighting Jam (LIVE?) or Street Fighter Aniversary. Nothings better than a Capcom 2D fighter.

RE4 is looking great (It needed a new camera), as has been Killer 7. I only wish I had a PS2 so I could enjoy the bizarre worlds of Crimson Tears and Under the Skin. It's just amazing how Capcom can pull of innovative, cool, cartoony, and psycotic; many times in the same game.

For anyone who doesn't remember, Aladdin is a QUALITY platformer.

I'll be having a Capcom Christmas then. All these games to choose from, and all from one developer. Bloody mental.

Yes I remember Aladdin on snes and md and it was a good game. I enjoyed the snes version a lot but both were good. I expect it's a SNES-GBA port. Lookin forward to Megaman Zero 3 on GBA and Fighting Jam, and well ....all of these games really.

Thanks Capcom, we luv ya.
