In Resident Evil 4 players have a huge variety of weapons and attacks to choose from. But YouTuber Dante Ravioli decided to use something very different to kill one of the most famous enemies in the game. Instead of a shotgun or pistol, they kicked a door into the chainsaw guy’s face a few...

Mike Tyson Says He Just Learned About Balrog In Street Fighter II

Mike Tyson Says He Just Learned About Balrog In Street Fighter II

In 1991, Street Fighter II was released. Now in 2019, Mike Tyson just heard about Balrog for the very first time.

As EventHubs points out, EPSN asked the former heavyweight champ if he knew the story about the character. Tyson replied, “No, I have no idea.” ESPN’s Arda Ocal explained how the boxer character Balrog was originally called “M. Bison” in Japan, with the initial being short for...

Capcom's New Card Game Has Chun-Li, Dante And Mega Man

Capcom's New Card Game Has Chun-Li, Dante And Mega Man

From out of nowhere, Capcom and GungHo just released a card-battling game featuring characters from throughout the company’s history, from Street Fighter to Monster Hunter to Devil May Cry.

It’s called Teppen, and its hook (beyond the licensing) is that the card battles take place “in real time, featuring dynamic action with over-the-top attacks blowing up your screen.”

There certainly are a...

Kotaku Shop Contest: A New Ken: Winners!

<i>Kotaku</i> Shop Contest: A New Ken: Winners!

Capcom gave Ken Masters a makeover for Street Fighter V, so last week I asked our image manipulation savvy readers to see if they could do it better. I believe the results speak for themselves.

There were two entries that particularly stood out this week. The first was TulsaMtnBiker’s amazingly subtle application of bacon to one of Capcom’s preexisting screenshots. Here’s the original shot:

Devil May Cry's Switch Port Is A Janky But Faithful Reprint

Devil May Cry's Switch Port Is A Janky But Faithful Reprint

It’s strange to play the original Devil May Cry in 2019. You can see the places where it was going to be the next Resident Evil before it became a brand new franchise. The Nintendo Switch port, released today, is a delicious piece of gaming history. While there are some rough edges and arguably better ways to play, the Switch port is still a good, way to play one of the best action games...

Crystal Crisis Is The Sequel Puzzle Fighter Fans Deserve

Crystal Crisis Is The Sequel Puzzle Fighter Fans Deserve

In 1996 Capcom released Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, a competitive puzzle game featuring chibi versions of Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters. The closest Capcom’s gotten to making a sequel is a failed free-to-play mobile game . It’s cool, though. Indie developer Nicalis just released Crystal Crisis, and it’s all current-gen gem-fighting fans could possibly need.

The only thing...

How Monster Hunter World Became Capcom's Greatest Success

How Monster Hunter World Became Capcom's Greatest Success

For a long time, when we thought of Capcom, we thought of its big franchises like Resident Evil and Street Fighter, but Monster Hunter always lurked in the background, waiting for its due. In 2018, Monster Hunter’s ambitions were finally realized when the fifth main installment in the series, Monster Hunter World, reached 10.9 million copies sold, making it Capcom’s best-selling single game...

Steel Battalion, for those who have never seen its wonder, was an old Xbox game from Capcom that’s famous for the absurdly large and expensive controller it shipped with. Something reader Dave obviously felt wasn’t absurdly large enough.

So he went and built this, the B.S.B.B. (Big Steel Battalion Box) Mk II. It is,...

Dragon's Dogma Is Getting The Fresh Chance It Deserves On Switch

Dragon's Dogma Is Getting The Fresh Chance It Deserves On Switch

I missed out on Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma when it first released in 2012. The reception was positive, if somewhat mixed. The Kotaku review noted that it was a game with potential that fell short . Since then, it’s developed a cult following thanks to intense monster slaying and a large open world. The upcoming Switch port for its enhanced version, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, is fantastic, and...

The Emulator In Capcom's Home Arcade Is Stirring Controversy

The Capcom Home Arcade, a plug-and-play fight stick that comes with classic arcade games pre-installed on it, was announced earlier this week , causing a backlash in the homebrew community who take issue with the device’s use of open-source emulation software.

Its website markets the Capcom Home Arcade as an “authentic gaming” experience, in part because it utilizes the original arcade ROMs...

Using the power of math and science, Vsauce determined that an average-sized fist performing a Rising Dragon Fist would apply enough force to decapitate a normal human being. Then they built a dummy to test their work.
