Devil May Cry 5 Tops the Japanese Charts and Boosts PS4 Sales

The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and Capcom is enjoying another strong debut. After taking the number two spot with the Resident Evil 2 remake back in January, Capcom took first this week with Devil May Cry 5. Although the hack and slash adventure managed only about half as many launch sales as the survival-horror remake, it still had a respectable debut with 116,202 sales.

Devil May Cry 5 also helped boost PlayStation 4 sales for the week. Sony’s console seemed just about tapped out when multiple new games couldn’t boost its February sales, but Capcom’s latest did the trick. PlayStation 4 sales jumped by around 14,000 units this week. That said, Nintendo Switch is still in a dominating lead with nearly 70,000 sales to PlayStation 4’s 32,000.

Devil May Cry 5 Could Come to Nintendo Switch

Capcom recently launched Devil May Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and it looks to be off to a strong start. The supernatural hack and slash adventure is pulling in impressive reviews, prompting Capcom USA CEO Kiichiro Urata to declare “Capcom is back!” So why not bring the latest Capcom success story to Switch, expanding its reach even further?

Hideaki Itsuno, director of Devil May Cry 5, recently entertained that question in an interview with German publication M! Games. Itsuno revealed that the game’s development began before Capcom had any Nintendo Switch dev kits to work with, but it doesn’t sound like the game is too taxing for the console. However, Capcom isn’t sold on a Switch port just yet.

Capcom recently revealed that Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is headed to Switch on April 23rd. Itsuno indicated that if this port sells well, Capcom will consider bringing Devil May Cry 5 over as well. This seems like a bit of a strange litmus test for interest in Devil May Cry on Switch. Comparing a port of an old game to a brand new title (with major gameplay differences) doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Is Capcom just trying to drum up more interest for Dragon’s Dogma?

“Capcom is Back!” Declares CEO

Devil May Cry 5 is due out tomorrow, and reviews have been extremely positive so far in what appears to be a trend for Capcom. Although they’re home to many beloved IP, Capcom isn’t always the most beloved of publishers. The company has fallen in and out of the good graces of its fans over the years, and it would seem that upper management recognizes this.

After the embargo lifted and the Devil May Cry 5 reviews began to pour in, Capcom USA CEO Kiichiro Urata released a short video on Twitter announcing “Capcom is back!” This is followed by an enthusiastic “YEAH!” from Capcom producer Matt Walker. Devil May Cry’s strong reception comes shortly after the Resident Evil 2 remake received similar praise. Capcom also saw strong scores for Mega Man 11 and Monster: Hunter World in 2018.

So what do you think, readers? Is Capcom really “back,” or are you not yet sold on their revival? Or are you among those who believe they never “left” in the first place? Sound off in the comments!

Resident Evil 2 Remake Hits 4 Million Shipments

Fans have been asking Capcom to revisit Leon and Claire’s escape from Raccoon City in Resident Evil 2 for years, and they finally gave in. The result was a smash hit that was widely praised by fans and reviews alike. Despite being a remake, many already see Resident Evil 2 as an early front-runner for 2019’s Game of the Year, and early sales figures have been equally positive.

According to the latest numbers from Capcom, the
Resident Evil 2 remake has shipped out over 4 million copies. That includes digital sales and physical shipments to retail. The remake was sitting at 3 million shipments as of January 29th, which means another million units have been downloaded and/or shipped out over the past month. This puts it less than a million units behind the original Resident Evil 2 and closing in fast.

In celebration of reaching this impressive milestone, Capcom held a round table event with several of the game’s developers. The group discusses some of the behind-the-scenes development of the remake over a nice meal. You can check it out by clicking below!

Capcom Slaps Higher Price Tag on Resident Evil Switch Ports

And here I hoped we were far enough along that the “Switch Tax” wouldn’t be as much of an issue going forward. Resident Evil 0, 1, and 4 are all coming to Nintendo Switch this May, and Capcom has just revealed some of the pricing info. While the Switch ports of Resident Evil: Revelations 1 and 2 kept their standard $20 price tags, that won’t be the case for the latest batch of survival-horror games.

Capcom has made all three games available for digital pre-order, and they all come with a $30 price tag in the US and a £30 price tag in the UK. 0 and 1 are getting a physical release in the US, and it’s common for physical Switch games to cost more due to the added cost of the Switch cartridges. However, there is no physical release planned in the UK, and that region is still getting the higher price tag. Meanwhile, Resident Evil 4 isn’t getting a physical Switch release anywhere, but it’s still getting the higher price tag as well.

Essentially, this looks like Capcom is jacking up the price of the digital versions of the games to compensate for the fact that the physical bundle will cost more. They most likely don’t want the digital versions of the game to be substantially cheaper than the physical versions. Frankly, it’s a bad practice that reflects poorly on Capcom and disrespects their Switch audience.

Update: As expected, the physical bundle including Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 is retailing at $60. Additionally, based on the Japanese listing, only Resident Evil 0 is actually on a cartridge. The “physical” bundle includes a digital download code for the Resident Evil HD Remaster. Thanks to Wario64 for spotting those developments.

Switch Gets Three Resident Evil Games in May

Last November, Capcom announced plans to bring Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 all to Switch sometime in 2019, and more recently they teased that we’d get an update on the matter soon. True to their word, Capcom has spilled the beans just five days later. All three games are coming in May, and, depending on where you live, you might even be able to grab some of them at retail!

The official eShop launch for this trio of survival-horror games is May 21st. In North America, fans will also be able to purchase the Resident Evil Origins Collection at retail. This bundle includes Resident Evil 0 and Resident Evil HD Remaster.

Capcom Will Share Resident Evil Switch News Later This Month

Nintendo Switch owners who don’t game on other platforms weren’t able to join in on the Resident Evil 2 remake fun last month, but Capcom hasn’t forgotten about them. Last November, Capcom announced plans to bring Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 all to Switch sometime in 2019.

We haven’t heard much about the ports since then, but that will be changing very soon. Capcom Community Manager Kat recently shared an update on the situation in response to a fan’s inquiry on Twitter. According to Kat, we can expect more details “at the end of February.” With just over a week left to go in the month, that means we don’t have long to wait!

Kingdom Hearts and Nintendo Switch Topped US Sales in January

The NPD Group has just released its latest monthly report, highlighting hardware and software sales number in the United States. Unsurprisingly, the long-awaited launch of Kingdom Hearts III proved to be immensely successful, as Square Enix’s action RPG beat out Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake for the top software spot.

Both of these highly anticipated titles outperformed their predecessors considerably. Kingdom Hearts III generated 2.5 times as much revenue in its first month as Kingdom Hearts II, while the Resident Evil 2 remake generated 2.8 times that of the original game. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe also followed this trend, outpacing the Wii U version of the game by 30%.

Despite the fact that the top two games of the month aren’t available on Nintendo Switch, the hybrid console still took the top spot for hardware sale, both in terms of units sold and dollars generated. Switch was the only console to perform better this January than in 2018.

The Monster Hunter Movie Hits Theaters Next Year

Back in 2016, we first learned that Capcom was planning a Monster Hunter movie with Resident Evil film director Paul W. S. Anderson at the helm. The project was silent for a long time before being re-introduced with a new plot and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich as the main character. Filming kicked off late last year with a budget of $60 million, and now it has progressed to the point where Sony Pictures is confident in setting a release date.

According to a Deadline report, Sony Pictures has scheduled the film in for September 4, 2020, or about two years after it began filming. Deadline also notes that this makes it the only movie scheduled for Labor Day weekend 2020 thus far. Here’s the latest breakdown of what you can expect from the
Monster Hunter movie.

Behind our world, there is another — a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When Lt. Artemis (Jovovich) and her loyal soldiers are transported from our world to the new world, the unflappable lieutenant receives the shock of her life. In her desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers and unstoppable, terrifying attacks, Artemis will team up with a mysterious man (Tony Jaa) who has found a way to fight back.

Tip “T.I.” Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta, Josh Helman, Jin Au-Yeung and Ron Perlman co-star in
Monster Hunter, and Anderson also produces alongside Robert Kulzer, Martin Moszkowicz, Jeremy Bolt and Dennis Berard.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Could Happen if Fans Ask For It

Over the past few days, millions of players have been enjoying the scares and thrills of Raccoon City in the remake of Resident Evil 2. The re-imagined survival-horror classic launched to stellar reviews and strong sales, which naturally has fans of the classics asking if Resident Evil 3 will follow in its bloody footsteps and receive a remake of its own.

Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi tackled this question in a recent interview, and there are plenty of reasons for fans to get excited. While he stopped well short of confirming any concrete plans, Hirabayashi indicated that the constant requests from fans are what brought the Resident Evil 2 remake to life. If the same continues to happen for Resident Evil 3, Capcom will take it into consideration.

You know what to do, horror fans! So far the latest adventure in Raccoon City looks to be a success for Capcom both commercially and critically. If you want to see the same happen for Resident Evil 3, make some noise! Besides, if the trend goes on long enough, I’ll finally get the from-the-ground-up remake of Resident Evil 4 that I crave so desperately.

Rumor: Resident Evil TV Show Coming to Netflix

Back in 2017, we heard rumors that Constantin Film was planning to reboot the Resident Evil film franchise. Little materialized from this project until a year later when we reported that Constantin was shifting gears and planning a Resident Evil TV show instead. It’s been nearly a year since that report, but now we finally have another update, courtesy of Deadline.

According to their exclusive scoop, Constantin now intends to bring their planned Resident Evil show to Netflix. It’s expected to follow the basic premise of the games while expanding the universe and deepening its mythology. The Umbrella Corporation (and the chaos they cause) will be a major focus, and it is said to feature “action sequences and Easter eggs.”

Constantin has reportedly chosen Johannes Roberts to write and direct the series. The project is apparently still in the early planning stages, so don’t expect an official reveal any time soon. That said, the hype surrounding the Resident Evil 2 remake is certainly motivation for Capcom to get this rebooted TV series rolling!
