    Capcom has cancelled the development of untitled projects at  Dead Rising developer Capcom Vancouver. The publisher expects to record a loss of 4.5 billion yen due to the cancellations. 

     

    Read the press release from Capcom below:

    Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) announces that it expects to record losses from the termination of development projects in its consolidated financial results for the six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 (April 1, 2018 - September 30, 2018). Details are as follows:

    1. Details of losses from the termination of development projects

    Capcom Game Studio Vancouver, Inc., a consolidated subsidiary of Capcom, primarily carries out development of home video game software for markets outside of Japan; however, Capcom is currently reviewing the allocation of its development resources that support the production of world-class content.

    In consideration of this process, as a result of reviewing titles in development at Capcom Game Studio Vancouver, Inc., Capcom now expects to record losses from the termination of development projects of approximately 4.5 billion yen under cost of sales in its consolidated financial results for the six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.

    2. Outlook

    Regarding Capcom's full-year business forecast, due to factors including the continued robust performance of the PC version of Monster Hunter: World exceeding the company's expectations since its release on the Steam platform in August, following the blockbuster performance of the title after its initial release in January of this year, the forecast for Capcom's consolidated business results remains the same as what was projected at the financial results announcement on May 8, 2018.

    Further, there are no changes to the amounts of the interim dividend or year-end dividend that were announced on the same day.

    Tri-Ace has announced Resonance of Fate 4K / HD Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam. It will launch worldwide on October 18 for $35 / €35 / 3,700 yen.

    View the announcement trailer below:


    Here is an overview of the game:

    The Earth in a far distant future.

    Although the reasons are unclear, multitudes of negative elements saturate the world, leaving the earth on the brink of ruin.

    The poisons from the atmosphere swirl along the ground, and the biosphere has become so warped that even the concept of time has been broken. The human race faces extinction from being unable to cope with the bizarrely evolving ecosystem.

    The remnants of humanity band together to build and place ‘Basel’, a huge machine that normalizes the environment. Basel functionality to normalize things also included controlling living things. That also included controlling the life cycles of people, reducing and exhausting humans as mere seeds.

    The remaining humans gathered around Basel and continued their existence. In time, the humans gained entrance into the machine and created living spaces and even a town. Though these actions had consequences, causing the gradual erosion of Basel’s functionality.

    The descendants of the original builders huddled in their self-contained worlds, repeating the mistakes of their ancestors.

    Publisher Ysbryd Games and developer Sukeban Games have announced N1RV Ann-A for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. The sequel to VA11 Hall-A will launch in 2020.

    View the reveal trailer below:

    Here is an overview of the game:

    Escape from VA11 Hall-A’s Glitch City to Saint Alicia, an idyllic paradise with an upscale bar called N1RV Ann-A. But opulence and extravagance are merely smokescreens: the artificial island hides a seedy underbelly. Its dystopian economy touches all aspects of life as bar patrons contend with mafia extortion, trafficking and other sordid crimes. For bartender Sam, trouble hits close to home. Her relationship with her partner Leon, who moonlights as a Yakuza, is on the rocks, and she works hard to care for their 8-year-old son, Tony.

    In N1RV Ann-A’s cyberpunk world, people stop at nothing to live luxuriously, even when it means augmenting their bodies to conform to extreme fads. Become acquainted with customers who frequent the bar, including erotic comic creator Parka and Sam’s gun-toting boss Iris, and serve up delicious real-life recipes with ingredients like vodka and tropical juices. Drink orders are as volatile as emotions in N1RV Ann-A – experiment with different drinks and see what happens!

    Explore various story outcomes based on which drinks are served and whose lives are changed. Players can replay missions to improve their scores, explore branching dialogue options and unlock secret missions. Earn better tips by relating to customers through their drinks, and spend hard-earned cash on bills, decorations and Sam’s son, Tony. Will Sam be able to move on and put misdeeds behind her as she embarks on this new cyberpunk bartending adventure?
