Those who took the time to dig through Capcom's most recent statistic-filled investor briefing
for the upcoming fiscal year could find two interesting nuggets therein. The first, and most savory
of these nuggets was a release date chart which revealed Capcom's plans to bring its upcoming pelt collecting action-RPG Monster Hunter 3 (Tri-)
to the U.S. and Europe some time during this fiscal year. For those who slept through Econ 101, that means it should be in your hot little hands before next April Fools' Day.
The second interesting bit was the revelation that Capcom
is currently working on nine Wii titles to release in the current fiscal year. We know about six of them: Monster Hunter G
(which dropped last month), Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles
, Resident Evil Archives
, Resident Evil Zero Archives
, and now, Monster Hunter 3
. What could the other three titles be? Further reboots of old series? Another Archived Resident Evil
? Brand new franchises? We may never know
. No, wait -- yes, we will. Sorry about that.
