Capcom will launch a Capcom Essentials bundle later this year that will include in a single package 5 Capcom titles. The titles are to be Devil May Cry 4, Dead Rising 2, Super Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 6, and Mega Man 10.

Mega Man 9 was a great event for retrogamers – bringing back an old Nintendo classic on new consoles after a decade of absence. The controls and game feel were authentic regardless of the new hardware. It was soon followed by Mega Man 10. Retrogamers and game nostalgics praised the games, but both lacked physical mediums that game collectors desired. They were released exclusively as downloadable titles on WiiWare, PSN and XBLA. Perhaps the Capcom essential bundle will be a way for collectors to get their hands on a physical copy of the game.

This has to be an interesting read…

Tech, Design, Style, Stuff.

I’m at a loss here, but the combination has me smiling and it’s worth the $10 price tag.

An adaptation of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, this play uses authentic Elizabethan grammar and diction, all while remaining true to the jargon and storytelling of Star Wars. Intended less as a parody, and more as a sincere work of literary value, this faithful retelling warrants a serious look. Well, somewhat serious…

Disney’s LucasFilm division recently registered a slew of new domain names related to a mystery project called Star Wars Attack Squadrons. Some of the names include StarWarsAttackSquadrons.com, AttackSquadrons.com, and StarWarsSquads.org.

It’s not clear right now if Attack Squadrons is the name of a new film, game, both, or something else entirely. But as Fusible points out, Electronic Arts currently owns the domain names AttackSquadron.com and AttackSquadron.net, suggesting the company is involved in the project.

In early May, Disney and EA signed a multiyear agreement that gave the Battlefield publisher the exclusive rights to games for the Star Wars franchise. The first title out of the partnership, a next-generation Battlefront game, was revealed during E3 2013 last month.

That game is in development in Sweden at DICE. Dead Space developer Visceral Games is also working on an all-new Star Wars game, though no details on this project have been announced.
