The Xbox 360 is consistently outperformed by the Wii and PlayStation 3 in Capcom's native Japan, but its popularity in the West is undeniable. According to managing executive Keiji Inafune, it was this fact that led Capcom to heavily support Microsoft's console with timed exclusives such as Dead Rising and Lost Planet, as well as multiplatform efforts such as Devil May Cry 4. "I think I can only get away with saying this now, but I really thought that using the Xbox was the only way to break into overseas markets, and I took that hypothesis all the way," said Inafune. "In the end, I am very happy that I did so." Inafune's comments came by way of an internal interview posted today to the publisher's official Web site. One of the more dramatic controversies of 2007 was Capcom's decision to abandon PlayStation exclusivity for its Devil May Cry franchise. The move inspired many an irate PS3 owner to flood the publisher's official forums with messages decrying the decision, with … [Read more...] about Inafune explains Capcom’s Xbox 360 push

Capcom's original Dead Rising was so steeped in cinematic zombie history that the publisher was actually sued for copyright infringement by the producer behind the 1979 classic George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead. Now the series is coming full circle, as Capcom Japan is making a live-action film based on its undead action game. The publisher has set up an official Web site for the project, called Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun in English. The site includes a trailer showing off production values and gore solidly in line with the zombie subgenre's historical B-movie nature. The film will feature creative continuity from the game, as Dead Rising director Keiji Inafune is helming the live-action adaptation as well. Additionally, Inafune reteamed with Dead Rising scenario editor Makoto Ikehara to create the film's story.

Former Capcom R&D head and producer Keiji Inafune has been keeping himself busy. Not only is he working on Soul Sacrifice, Kaio: King of Pirates, and a side-scrolling Android game called JJ Rocket, but he has also announced a new game called Yaiba ("blade" or "fang" in English). According to a recent issue of Famitsu (via SGCafe), all Inafune has said about the game is that the zombie action title will have ninja and mecha elements in it. The article on Famitsu also showed off numerous artworks of zombie hordes. On a related note, Koei Tecmo registered the trademark "Yaiba" in Europe on August 31 this year, which could mean that the publisher of the Dynasty Warriors and Ninja Gaiden series might be involved with Inafune's new game. No platforms have been announced for Yaiba. More details on the game will be revealed on September 20, which is the first business day of Tokyo Game Show 2012. … [Read more...] about Keiji Inafune teases new zombie action title

Source: A Famitsu interview with Capcom's Keiji Inafune. What we heard: Dead Rising and Lost Planet: Extreme Condition are a tricky pair of titles for Capcom. Both originally billed as Microsoft exclusives, Lost Planet was subsequently delivered to the PlayStation 3, while Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop is expected to arrive for the Wii before the end of March. That, despite a Capcom representative expressly denying such an occurrence would happen. For the next installments in the two franchises, Capcom is apparently focusing on a multiplatform release from the get-go. Speaking to Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (a screenshot of which was obtained by Kotaku and translated by GameSpot), Capcom's Keiji Inafune told the gaming news outlet, "Please expect new Dead Rising and Lost Planet titles. While they will be on multiple platforms, we are thinking about having the 360 version play out differently." Wait, did he just say new Dead Rising and Lost Planet games?

Source: A recently posted YouTube video appears to be a teaser trailer for the still-unannounced Dead Rising 2, and suggests that the game will be set in a Las Vegas-style, entertainment-obsessed city. What we heard: Dead Rising 2 has been rumored almost since the Xbox 360 exclusive originally launched, given that Capcom was running surveys at the time inquiring about interest in a sequel. Since that time, a Dead Rising follow-up has been hinted at, tied to a developer, and publicly acknowledged, but not actually announced. If this latest teaser trailer is any indication, Capcom may be about ready to break its silence on Dead Rising 2. Clocking in at exactly a minute in length, the trailer does exactly what a teaser trailer should do. It establishes its Dead Rising ties straight away with news coverage of "the Willamette incident," and shows exterior shots of the Willamette mall where the original game took place. The teaser then sets up the premise for a sequel. In the background, a … [Read more...] about Dead Rising 2: Vegas or bust?
