After months and months of waiting Empire Interactive has confirmed that Double Dragon is finally coming to Xbox Live Arcade this week.
In case you've got no idea what we're on about (you weirdo), Double Dragon is a classic side-scrolling beat-em-up set in the lovely city of Detroit. Two brothers Billy and Jimmy Lee, masters of a mystical martial art, travel the streets beating up rivals and anyone who looks at them funny for no particular reason.
The Arcade version of the much-loved bruiser
Although we haven't personally been counting, this year is apparently the 25th anniversary of the Tron movie, and Disney is "celebrating" by reviving the old-school arcade games for Xbox Live Arcade.
The original arcade versions Tron (1982) and Discs of Tron (1983) are on the way, both coming packed with updated versions that boast updated graphics and sounds. Both the old and updated versions will support online multiplayer over Xbox
Although the two stars Dante and Nero are apparently very different (even though they look like the same guy wearing different coats) Capcom says that the two console versions of Devil May Cry 4 will be pretty much identical.
Speaking to IGN, an unnamed DMC4 dev commented: "As far as the Xbox  and the PS3 are concerned, the capabilities and the features in the game, we expect will be the same. Our plan is to pretty much make them identical. You may be able to use some of the functionality
The latest issue of magazine EGM has printed a rumor suggesting that Team Ninja is currently working on a PS3 exclusive game set in the popular DOA universe. No further details on the rumor were given, so we only speculate what Team Ninja (responsible for Ninja Gaiden and DOA games) is up to.
There are three obvious options; a new fighting game, a new DOAX volleyball game or a new Ninja Gaiden game. We don't think it would be a new Ninja Gaiden game though, Ninja Gaiden Sigma is nearing
When you look back at what the PlayStation 2 is, the tone for action-adventure games was entirely set by the original Devil May Cry. The series shaped the very way we think about 3D action, sword fighting, gun slinging and adventure. With Devil May Cry 4 set to hit the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 later this year, the developers at Capcom are banking that they can recapture the lighting in a bottle that made the series such a formidable killer the first time around.
Over the course of the
When a developer sits down to create a game that involves a central starring character it's probably the most important part of the whole game making process. The key is to design a character who is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also someone you care about and believe in. Get it wrong or misjudge what your audience wants and your game baby might never turn into the multi-million dollar franchise you'd hoped
The fourth Devil May Cry game is almost upon us. Later this year, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 gamers will get the chance to take control of a new hero, Nero, and fight the demonic hordes that plague his world.
Today, we bring you the first new taste of Devil May Cry 4 you've had in a good while - in the form of world exclusive screenshots and movie footage that show off the latest adventure.
Feast your eyes upon Nero's battle with the wicked Berial, or the speedy Frost enemies. Witness the
Capcom Europe has told us that Dead Rising 2 remains a rumor even though details on the sequel have been spotted in Japanese gaming mag, Famitsu.
Internet reports have stated that the follow-up to the company's Xbox 360 zombie splatterfest has been confirmed as being in development in the latest edition of Famitsu, leading to speculation that Dead Rising 2 will be unveiled at a Capcom press event happening this week.
Going by Capcom Europe's comments to us, that won't be the case - but you
The funny thing about inventing a genre of videogames is that, until it becomes completely played out, every game that emulates your formula is going to be attached to your name. Games that feature a wide-open, freely explorable world, for example, will have a hard time avoiding the label of "Grand Theft Auto clone," especially if their worlds are littered with vehicles to steal and drive.
In the six years since Grand Theft Auto III, a slew of games have tried to become "the next GTA," but so
Videogame sound effects creators have far too much fun. More than us even. Well, they do if they're creating wince-inducing neck-snap and gory dismemberment sounds for Digital Extremes' action game Dark Sector, anyway.
As it turns out, this involves extreme fruit and veggie abuse, a practice common the in darker corners of Norfolk where the sheep breathe sighs of relief. Have melon? Smash it, smash it with a hammer. Rip celery apart like a real man! And finger a zucchini to produce... squelchy
