2 Upcoming Capcom Games Announced?


Quote:
It's labelled '1942 marketing splash' and listed on industry PR site Games Press as an iPhone asset from Capcom, so we assume this is the first official comment about the classic arcade shooter coming to App Store.

Obviously it's not super official though. Especially the 2006 copyright notice, which makes us think this actually comes from the mobile release.

Still we can't believe that Capcom's announced App Store invasion wouldn't include 1942.

Like nature red in tooth and claw, so it seems with puzzles. For a hundred years, we were happy with crosswords, but then all of sudden we had sudoku, kakuro, nonograms and other crazy, complex ways of wasting time fighting for our attention.

So to KenKen. It's sort of like sudoku and sort of not. Anyway, it's numbers in boxes plus some extra maths equations thrown in for good measure.

And actually we really enjoyed the mobile version - KENKEN: Train Your Brain that was released by Capcom and designed by KenKen creator Tetsuya Miyamoto (no relation).

Capcom's now bringing the experience - again designed by Tetsuya Miyamoto - to iPhone. There will be over 250 puzzles in total, plus the prerequisite tutorial.

KenKen: Train Your Brain will be available on the App Store in June.

I wish they would announce the Phoenix Wright games for the iPod. I think they would be perfect for the iPhone.

Note that this is only 2 out of 10 announced. There may be a chance that they'll release the game you mentioned.

They need a decent Mega Man game.

And a Bionic Commando and Street Fighter games would be interesting.

Make an original Megaman game where you run around with a control pad and target enemies by touching on them. They would be interesting
