Capcom Next Summer 2024 game Kunitsu Gimi Dead Rising Resident evil

Capcom’s latest showcase, Capcom Next Summer 2024, has left gamers buzzing with excitement.

In a concise 40-minute presentation, the company unveiled updates for three highly anticipated titles and teased the future of its iconic Resident Evil franchise.

Let’s dive into the details of each announcement:

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is shaping up to be a unique and visually stunning addition to Capcom’s lineup.

Set for release on July 19, this Japanese-inspired action strategy game offers a fresh take on the tower defense genre.

Developed by Capcom Development Division 1, the studio behind Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, Kunitsu-Gami promises to deliver an immersive gaming experience.

You’ll play as Soh, tasked with protecting a divine maiden named Yoshiro.

The gameplay is divided into day and night cycles.

  • During the day, players control Soh, exploring villages, interacting with NPCs, and strategizing for the night ahead.
  • As darkness falls, the action intensifies as players command villagers to fight against the evil Seethe.

Drawing inspiration from Japanese folklore, Kunitsu-Gami incorporates elements such as kagura, an ancient ceremonial dance form, into Soh’s combat style. The enemy designs are influenced by Japanese yokai, adding depth to the game’s cultural richness.

The game’s demo, now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PS4, and PC via Steam, allows players to experience part of the main story without any time or play count restrictions.

Pre-order bonuses for Kunitsu-Gami include:

  • Mazo Talisman: Walking Basket (Equipment for Soh)
  • Mazo Talisman: Astral Projection (Equipment for Soh)
  • Mini artbook of Kunitsu-Gami

Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster:

Zombie-slaying fans, rejoice! Frank West is back, and he’s looking better than ever. But what’s new in this deluxe remaster?

Set to release on September 18, 2024, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, this remaster goes beyond simple graphical upgrades.

According to developer Rysosuke Murai, this remaster is so extensive it “wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call this game a remake.” Here’s what’s new:

  • 4K 60fps gameplay powered by the RE Engine
  • Quality-of-life improvements, including the ability to move while aiming
  • Enhanced NPC behavior
  • Refined user interface
  • Addition of autosave functionality
  • Fully-voiced story in nine languages

The digital deluxe edition will offer additional costumes and mall background music, while a physical release is scheduled for November 2024.

Dead Rising has been a fan-favorite since its 2006 debut on Xbox 360. This remaster brings the classic zombie-slaying action to modern consoles, potentially reviving the franchise after the lukewarm reception of Dead Rising 4 in 2016.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Coming to Mobile

Capcom is bringing the horror of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard to iOS and Mac devices, offering a AAA gaming experience on mobile platforms.

Set in the eerie swamps of Louisiana, Resident Evil 7 follows Ethan Winters as he searches for his missing wife, encountering the terrifying Baker family along the way.

Compatible with iPhone 15 Pro series or newer, iPads with M1 chip or newer, and Macs with M1 chip or newer, this port promises to deliver the full Resident Evil 7 experience with some mobile-specific enhancements:

  • Improved touch controls
  • New auto-aim and auto-fire features
  • Touch-compatible inventory system

The game’s pricing structure allows players to try before they buy:

  • First section: Free-to-play
  • Full game unlock: $19.99
  • Additional DLCs and extras: $19.99

This mobile port joins Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village as part of the series available on Apple devices, with Resident Evil 2 also in development.

The timing of this release aligns perfectly with Apple’s announcement of Game Mode in the upcoming iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 versions, potentially enhancing the gaming experience on these devices.

Resident Evil 9 Confirmed

In a surprise announcement, game director Koshi Nakanishi confirmed that a new Resident Evil game is in development.

While details are scarce, Nakanishi teased, “It was really difficult to figure out what to do after 7. But I found it, and to be honest it feels substantial.”

The Resident Evil series has seen a resurgence in recent years, with critically acclaimed entries like Resident Evil 7 and the remakes of 2 and 3. This new installment could potentially continue the first-person perspective introduced in 7 or return to the series’ roots.

While no release date or further details were provided, fans can likely look forward to more information in future Capcom showcases.

We previously discussed all the rumors and leaks about this game.
