  1. Capcom’s E3 lineup won’t be much of a surprise when the show rolls around next week. That’s because the developer and publisher has already released details regarding much of what it plans to show off including a new collection of Mega Man remakes as well as playable demos of Resident Evil 0 and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition.

    Mega Man Legacy Collection will include what Capcom calls faithful reproductions of the six original Mega Man games. It’ll also feature a new Challenge Mode that remixes gameplay segments from all six games with scalable difficulty for both newcomers and Mega Man veterans. Museum Mode, meanwhile, consists of a collection of history, high-res art and other original concept pieces from the popular franchise.

    Look for it to launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer before arriving on the Nintendo 3DS come winter.

    Capcom will also allow attendees to play a demo of Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original Resident Evil. For those unfamiliar, the Resident Evil 0 was launched in 2002 and delves into what really happened before the mansion incident that jumpstarted the franchise.

    The remake, due out for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC early next year, will feature new HD visuals, improved sound, widescreen support and an optional modernized control system.

    Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition includes the original 2008 release with three new playable characters, a Turbo Mode, a Legendary Dark Knight Mode, new costumes and other gameplay improvements. Look for it to drop on next-gen consoles and the PC on June 23.

    Remakes of old games at E3 is not a good sign.

    But but, this one is "with HD flair" !!!!

    Kinda lost with 8 bit graphics ha ha... but it'll be a nice and sharp image hopefully, which is all you can ask for really.

    I'm all in for the Megaman remix and RE0.

    Although as stated, old remakes on an event like the E3 is a bad sign... but it might as well be a preview of things that already exist vs what is to come that they haven't shown.

    I agree with Kibaruk. I'm all for a Megaman and RE0 remakes, but I hope there is new content that Capcom will show at E3.

    8-bit remix with HD flare...
     
  9. I'm reasonably sure they'll show off new stuff at E3. All of these titles are re-releases and remasters, and it makes some sense that they'd introduce them separately to announcements of new titles.
