Capcom at CES

Capcom CES 2011
Other late night CES news I didn’t notice while distracted features a release date for Capcom’s sequel to Bionic Commando Rearmed, which hits the PlayStation 3 on February 1, 2011 for $14.99 and the 360 a day later for 1200 MS Points.

Okamiden also gets some love with more art, video, and screens showing off another partner for Chibi, Kurow, along with a wind based mini-game as well as what appears to be a Chibiterasu jam session in the sky.

Okamiden is still set to hit the Nintendo DS on March 15, 2011.

Okamiden Before the Spring

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , — Jamie Love @ 12:44 pm

Capcom revealed a few details about Chibiterasu’s arrival on North American DS’ today, specifically that the event will be taking place on March 15, 2011, and that the cost should run you about $29.99 USD.

There was also mention of a pre-order bonus via GameStop, which doesn’t seem nearly as grand as what Japan eventually got on top, but whatcha gonna do?

Actually what you can do, apparently, is loiter around the Okami Facebook page, where Capcom is mentioning fabulous prizes for those fans that drop by and play with the Goblin Mask Facebook app. The PR used words like “win a 3DS, a copy of the game, Chibiterasu plushies” – so maybe drop by there and see what’s up with all that, though one expects it may be a while before you can really win any of those things.

Waiting For Okamiden

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , — Jamie Love @ 8:59 am

Sometimes I think about the long wait for Okamiden in North America, and I fret about all the accidents that could befall me during such a long expanse of time – it’s a dangerous world out there after all.

But in an attempt to ease my mind, I noticed that Okamiden screenshots practically beg to be comic panels with custom dialogue. I won’t suggest my first attempt is very creative, but you should totally give it a try, if only to eat up some of the wait.

In fact, I insist you give it a try, and send me the results!

Your Okamiden Import Temptation

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , — Jamie Love @ 9:03 am

Apparently Capcom wants to ensure no one ever releases a more legendary collector’s edition for a videogame, ever. My evidence for this comes via the Japanese CE for Okamiden, which offers a giant box to help store the swag accompanying the game – bonus soundtrack, DVD, illustrated book, tiny plushie, and perhaps the cutest earphones ever created.

It’s official – Capcom is absolutely vomiting rainbows full of Okamiden swag.

Check it out over at E-Capcom.

Morning Cuteness: I Need this Okamiden Plush

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , , , — Sam Scott Given @ 9:03 am

You know, there are just some days where you need something to hold to make you feel better, so who’s better then the flaming white wolf God Chibiterasu to keep you company?

Look, I know I may not be the first person you’d expect to go out and buy a plush game character, but I would totally make an exception for this. At close to one and a half feet, there’s a lot of love here, and for cheap too; It will be released in japan later this year for just under $60 USD.

Filed under: News Feed — Tags: , , , — Jamie Love @ 12:34 pm

Capcom’s updated the Japanese Okamiden site, which you can visit here, adding new details about bonus items, new wallpaper, and most importantly a release date of September 30, 2010 for the spiritual continuation of the series.

It’s definitely worth a visit – you can update your Okamiden art collection and watch some trailers before returning to wondering what portion of 2011 Capcom intends to leave the rest of us waiting for.
