Devil May Cry HD Collection announced for PS4 in 2018

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

If you’ve been needing a Dante the demon hunter fix whelp us here at What’s Up PlayStation have some good news to report as Capcom announced some good news. Capcom is bringing Devil May Cry HD Collection to PlayStation 4 and other consoles both physically and digitally on March 13, 2018 for $29.99.

The Devil May Cry HD collection, which first released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in April 2012, will include various editions of the particular Released of the Game here’s what you can expect detailed below:

Devil May Cry (2001)

This is the one that started it all, starring a mature and subdued Dante, which matched the mood and tempo of the game’s sense of isolation during the exploration sequences and tough-as-nails boss battles. It’s also the game that inspired my favorite TV game ad of all time:

Devil May Cry 2 (2003)

Taking place after the events of the first Devil May Cry, this sequel strives for a more cinematic look and feel to combat, changing things up in how the camera behaves, but also taking extreme care to make the animations more natural and fluid. Plus, you can unlock and play as Trish, featuring her own unique weapons and move set.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (2006)

Focusing on the origins of our favorite demon hunter, this prequel features a much younger and more rambunctious Dante who cares very little about how much damage he’s doing to even his own shop as long as he can chew his pizza and kick some butt. And he runs out of pizza.

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition quickly took the spotlight as a fan favorite with the addition of combat Styles that significantly change the way you slay demons. These Styles can be selected and upgraded between each mission. This game also put a spotlight on Dante’s relationship with his twin brother Vergil, who is an unlockable character with his own move set and gameplay.

 

(Editor’s Opinion: I love the Devil May Cry series and it’s sad to say that up to this day I’ve yet to finish Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition. However since hearing the news of this re-release for Current-Gen consoles. I look forward to playing these. Me personally I love the 2nd Devil May Cry the most. So I definitely look forward to earning the platinum’s on these HD editions of the games. This is a must have title if it were up to me for Hack and Slash Action lovers. Devil May Cry is one of my most favorite series stemming from the PS2 generation. I can’t wait to get my hands on these titles.)

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Introduces Black Widow, Venom and Winter Soldier to the battle

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Happy holidays as we begin this week with some interesting news as released today via Capcom and the PS Blog here’s what they’ve laid out about the characters so far and you can check out the trailer with details below:

Young soldier Bucky Barnes fought alongside his best friend Captain America during World War II. Presumed dead after a dangerous mission ended in tragedy, he was captured by enemy forces and secretly brainwashed into becoming a deadly assassin known as the Winter Soldier. Bucky, now free from his captors, is once again ready to fight for the good of humanity.

Winter Soldier excels at ground combat using special moves that send the opponent flying across the screen and projectiles that bounce off the walls and floor. Bucky can activate metal shield, which utilizes his cybernetic arm to turn him into an anchor, allowing him to ignore attacks without taking any damage!

Trained extensively in the art of combat and espionage and outfitted with state-of-the-art tech, Natasha Romanova is the super spy known as Black Widow. Dutiful and fearless, she is a master assassin who found her true calling as an Avenger. She now fights to protect the world from Ultron Sigma’s influence.

As a deadly spy, Black Widow has tools for every situation. Her unique acrobatic jump can be performed in mid-air and followed up with one of her many tricky projectiles with the press of a button. Natasha also showcases her skills in hand-to-hand combat with her trusty electric batons.

Blaming Peter Parker for the failure of his journalism career, former Daily Bugle reporter Eddie Brock bonded with a malevolent, symbiotic alien creature who had previously attempted to bond with Peter. United by the goal to destroy Spider-Man, they are the fearsome force known only as Venom!

Prepare for the unexpected with Venom’s shapeshifting abilities. As a frightening force on the battlefield, Venom can launch himself across all angles of the screen and has no issue manipulating the opponent’s options to favor his own.

Everyone who has the 2017 Character Pass will unlock access to Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom on December 5 — along with the previously released Black Panther, Sigma, and Monster Hunter. Each character is also available for purchase individually.

Free Demo Weekend: 11/24 to 11/27

Capcom will have a free demo available this weekend from November 24 at 8:00 AM Pacific to November 27 at 8:00 AM Pacific, exclusively on PS4! The Demo will include All 30 launch characters so make sure to check it out this upcoming weekend and see if marvel is right for you!

(Editors Opinion: honestly Venom looks better than expected. It really seems as if the DLC characters have had more effort into their fighting style and art design more so than the default rosters of characters in this edition of MVCI. However minus the not so appealing looks this game is tons of fun. I do really appreciate the work put into the Winter Soldier, Venom and Black Widow for this DLC and I hope they are fun and accessible as they currently look to be. Only time will tell once we get our hands on it. The next TOA tournament should be pretty interesting with the inclusion of these fighters!)

With that being said What do you think of the new trio of  characters heading to MVCI soon. What other characters would you like to see for the next set of characters comment below let us know.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Announced to release January 16th

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

In one of the worse kept secrets among the FGC Sony has finally revealed that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be releasing January 16th 2018. As reported via the PlayStation blog and official Capcom site. It has been revealed that the much anticipated and requested feature Arcade mode will finally be included for all users of Street Fighter V. Included with this news is that all characters will be available for free once Street Fighter: AE is released. Capcom has stated “Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2”  and they still have one more character that they will be announcing very soon.

  • All characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose prior to matches starting

More news will be released in the near future (PSX/Capcom Cup Finals, or PGW) here’s what capcom had to say in closing per the PS Blog.

As we promised in the past, the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything we’ve mentioned above. We wanted to make sure there’s something to celebrate for both current and new players alike.

Editors Opinion: As a fan and lover of the Street Fighter Series this is good news and I hope that it can refresh and ignite a general interest in fans of the series and the FGC community. As many competitive Fighters are on the Rise (Dragon Ball Fighterz, Blazeblue Tag Battle etc.) Capcom has to remind the world the reason why street fighter has lasted for so many years (30 to be exact) and rekindle that competitive edge. Let’s see if this gives them that edge they so desperately need.

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this news. Does this interest you to make time and the effort of purchasing the long respected fighter again or for the first time this gen? As you know with this news you can expect “The Online Arcade to have many more Tournament with this great news. With that being said comment below and let us know your thoughts.

Street Fighter V Urien Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Bright and early this morning Capcom released their latest trailer for the last of the 6 DLC characters announce for Street Fighter V. Urien will be coming to us within the September SFV updateCapcom previously announced last month. Urien was first introduced in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact and quickly became a favorite character for many Street Fighter fans. Urien’s goal is to destroy Shadaloo and to take over the Illuminati from his older brother Gill, who he ultimately dislikes. Be prepared for many Metallic Sphere’s, Chariot Tackles, and yes the Aegis Reflector!

image

During the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom stated they will give the release date for Urien and also talk about the September’s SFV update.

So what does Urien have to offer in SFV:

imageimage

V-Skill: Metallic Aura

Urien laughs maniacally while enveloping his body with his Metallic Aura. Once charged, his skin tone darkens and the next forward-propelling special move can temporarily absorb one attack.

imageimage

V-Trigger: Aegis Reflector

Urien opens his arms and creates an energy barrier in front of him. The barrier will reflect projectiles back at the opponent and the direction held when activating the V-Trigger determines where it appears. Opponents who touch the barrier without blocking will take damage and be knocked back. With a full V-meter, Urien can project two barriers.

imageimage

Critical Art: Dominate Crush

Urien channels energy into his arm and slams it into the ground, striking his opponent with a pillar of destruction.

Urien concludes the 6 DLC characters Capcom promised before releasing Street Fighter V. Putting the total of SFV characters to 22, but who will be the next 6 DLC characters Capcom will announce? Are you excited to play as Urien? Let us know in the comments below.

Street Fighter V – Story Expansion: A Shadow Falls Available for pre-loading

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

The real Street Fight is almost here!

Street Fighter V since launch hasn’t received the most luxurious response from the causal side of gamers, who enjoys fighting games. But it seems after the critically negative feedback they’ve received from server issues at launch and abysmal communication to the community on features and DLC characters. Capcom is seeking to right it’s wrongs and actually follow through with it’s promise of delivering a fully new cinematic story mode for those seeking a bit more from Street Fighter V, than playing online against other players via Casual or Ranked matches. Well today that wait ends (well almost) as you currently can download the story add-on for pre-load. (Click the photo to go directly to the store link.)

sf story

The story mode expansion will be available for playing this weekend: July 1st to be exact. As you can see it will take about 7.6 GB on your HDD space. As stated previously the story mode takes place between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III. And is said to range between 3-4 hours of play time. What do you want to see in the story expansion? Are you excited for the upcoming expansion or do you think it’s too little, too late? Comment below let us know!
