Capcom Recap: 04/14/2017 – 04/20/2017

This week we took a look back at beloved Capcom developed Disney games, revealed new Street Fighter V costumes and celebrated the love for drawing Mega Man characters.


Results from the Capcom Fighters Network beta test 2 are up

Thailand stage remastered and “School” costumes come to Street Fighter V on April 25th

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers gets a new trailer

The Disney Afternoon Collection, bringing back some real 90s gems, is finally out on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Funny story: when I first started working on this project, the 90s aesthetic felt like a fun novelty to me… but then I started noticing lots and lots more references to that time period along with other project announcements (TV shows, movies, etc.), so… are the 90s finally 100… % back?

And for a quick history lesson on the protagonists in The Disney Afternoon Collection games, we worked closely with our friends at Laser Time to put together these awesome character retrospectives. You can watch the TaleSpin and Darkwing Duck ones below, but stay tuned for two more of these coming your way soon!

In addition to all the Street Fighter updates listed above, I just wanted to shine an extra spotlight on the work-themed costumes coming to SFV . You should check out the full blog post for more shots and concept art of each of the costumes. For this theme, Alex, R. Mika and Chun-Li get new premium costumes, and my best guess is they didn’t include Urien because… well, he’s already wearing work clothes. Anyways, here’s a taste of Alex’s costume.

Hello again! Stephanie here following up on a promise to showcase a few of my favorite submissions from last week’s fan-hosted Draw Mega Man Day event.

Oops, there may be a spicy, slicey theme going on here… Underneath those deep cuts, Cut Man’s really just a sweetheartbot. â¤

Enjoy Cut Man and more, like this great Tron Bonne , a musical melody from Splash Woman , and this Mega Man family portrait with Rush, because of course dogbot = family. All these and more if you Search Snake your way through the hashtag #DMMD2017 on Twitter.
