We’re starting the New Year strong with a bevy of Monster Hunter Rise news, including new
monster and feature reveals and the release of a downloadable Demo!
The news was brought to you by the Monster Hunter dev team in Japan via our Monster Hunter Digital Event – January 2021. If you’ve already
watched the live stream or VOD, you’re good to go. Otherwise, here’s a quick
Demo – your chance to try out the inventive new gameplay in Monster Hunter Rise is here! Take on two Training Quests and two Hunting Quests to try out all the new gameplay mechanics (Wirebug, Wyvern Riding, Palamutes, etc.) we have in store! More info on the demo here.
Frost Islands –
once a nest of huge dragons a long time ago. It is said many heroes went there
to try and slay them, to no avail. Similar to the Shrine Ruins and Flooded
Forest, you can expect to encounter a wide variety of monsters and endemic life.
Goss Harag – a Fanged
Beast capable of creating blades of ice to attack its prey. Its chilling
presence should not be taken lightly…
– along with the new icy region and Goss Harag, we’ve also revealed the return
of some fearsome fan-favorite foes: Khezu, Great Baggi, Lagombi, Barioth,
Tigrex, and Mizutsune!
Magnamalo – the
flagship monster of Monster Hunter Rise
shows off some of its tricks, including tail attacks that seem to spew a gas
that looks like hellfire!
Wyvern Riding – this
brand-new hunting technique uses the Ironsilk from Wirebugs to bind monsters allowing
you to control them. Now you can take their immense power and use it to hunt other
monsters! Check out a more in-depth overview of this feature in our tutorial
– meet more of the cast of colorful characters that inhabit Kamura Village and
will help you in your journey to fight back against the impending Rampage.
And if you’re in the mood to watch (or re-watch) some Monster Hunter Rise videos, here they

Monster Hunter Rise Hunting 101
Check out these two tutorial videos to get a thorough
breakdown of two of the core new gameplay mechanics in Monster Hunter Rise: Wirebugs and Wyvern Riding. Highly recommended
viewing before playing the demo.
For the uninitiated, Steam now has a section of their store dedicated to music. This is most commonly used for soundtracks of games available on Steam (and you’ll find the Devil May Cry 5 OST there as well!), but it’s also open to any music release… hence Devil May Cry HR/HM Arrange. It’s one hell of an album, so I definitely recommend checking it out.
Alright, enough from me. Between Vergil and these rockin’
tunes, you’ve got enough to juggle today. Keep it SSStylish!
Put on your waterproof boots and prepare to wade through the
Flooded Forest and confront slippery new foes in Monster Hunter Rise.
It’s also time to start getting your Nintendo Switch ready for your first taste of Monster Hunter Rise with the free, public demo that will be released in January.
In our last Monster Hunter Rise trailer and blog, we introduced the main story and setting, the all-new Shrine Ruins locale and the new core gameplay mechanics: Wirebug and Palamute. Now, it’s time to expand the horizons and unveil the marshy wetlands of the Flooded Forest.
Of course, as new areas are introduced, we are bound to see new life inhabit them and fight to protect their turf. In addition to returning favorite swamp-dwellers Royal Ludroth and Great Wroggi, today we also met the intoxicating Somnacanth and the trickster Bishaten.
We also got another look at our preparations for the impending Rampage, including a glimpse at the Stronghold. Are you ready to face a huge stampede of monsters?
We know you’re itching to get your hands on Monster Hunter Rise, so we’re preparing a free demo to give you a little taste of what we have in store. All we can say for now is the demo is slated for a January 2021 release, so stay tuned!
Announced at The Game Awards 2020, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection sees the return of the gallant knight, Arthur, as he embarks on a brand-new quest to rescue the princess from the devious Demon Realm! Plus, dozens of arcade classics make their return with a slew of new features in Capcom Arcade Stadium!
Ghouls, Ghosts, ‘n Goblins
There are few spots more idyllic than the hilltop looking
out over the kingdom. It’s here that the noble princess and her gallant knight,
Arthur, enjoy spending time together… but their time together is unexpectedly
cut short when malicious monsters appear and take off with the princess! Taken
by surprise and only able to watch as the princess is kidnapped to the Demon
Realm, the chivalrous Arthur dons his armor and embarks on a quest to rescue
the princess and save the day!
For over 35 years, Ghosts
‘n Goblins games have tested and delighted players with challenging
gameplay, gigantic bosses, and a cast of familiar foes, including Zombies,
Skeleton Murderers, Pigmen, and, of course, the infamous Red Arremer. This time
around, Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection
brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “side scroller.” With the story being
presented on an in-game scroll of parchment, Arthur will run, jump, battle, and
navigate his way across platforms, pits, and tricky terrain in a storybook-like
world while he tries to keep his armor – and his honor – intact on his quest to
save the princess.
Seasoned Knights need not worry; this is a brand-new take on
the GnG you know and love. Filled with
deadly enemies, devious traps, and delightful levels that will put your skills
to the test Ghosts ‘n Goblins
Resurrection takes cues from both the original Ghosts ‘n Goblins as well as the sequel, Ghouls ‘n Ghosts, to create entirely new challenges. Knights of all
kinds can bravely journey into the Demon Realm by selecting one of multiple difficulty
modes, including Squire, Knight, and Legend. For new apprentices who are just
learning to throw a lance, Page mode allows them to respawn on the spot with unlimited
Arthur will have plenty of options to dispatch his enemies.
Multiple familiar weapons make their return, including the classic Lance and
the deadly Dagger, with new, unique weapons making their first appearance,
including the crushing Hammer and fatal Spiked Ball. Magic returns, too, giving
Arthur a variety of spells to unleash on his enemies, including the sizzling
Firewall and the crackling Thunderstorm. Knights of all kinds will need to find
the right combination of weapon, magic, and skills that works best for them if
they wish to survive the perilous journey through the Demon Realm!
The year is 199X. You just finished a bottle of clear cola. There
are blacklights everywhere, and you can feel the crunch of the thin carpet – decorated
with neon shapes and squiggles – beneath your tennis shoes. It’s your third
attempt at impatiently jamming a $5 bill into the token machine, and you can
barely hear the clicks and whirs of the bill (finally) being accepted over all
the noise in the arcade. But a moment later, the ping of tokens spilling out greets
your ears, and as you scoop each handful into your pockets, you look out over
all the colorful cabinets and think… what am I going to play next?
Relive the heyday of arcades with Capcom Arcade Stadium,
featuring 32 classics from the mid-1980s through the early 2000s! Start your
tour with a free download of 1943 – The Battle of Midway –, or see where
Arthur’s journey began with the stand-alone add-on of Ghosts ‘n Goblins.
You can also grab your favorite games from three different arcade packs
spanning multiple eras! Packs include 80’s nostalgia trips like BIONIC
COMMANDO and STRIDER, and games that defined the 90’s arcade
revolution – including SUPER STREET FIGHTER II TURBO. Ready to go all-in on the classic arcade experience?
You can grab all three packs of 10 games and the Ghosts ‘n Goblins stand-alone
add-on at once with the “all-in” pack, and enjoy them all any time you want!
The full arcade experience is available to you, too, with
lots of modern features on top of local co-op (up to four players for games
that support it). Game Speed and Difficulty Level can be adjusted, allowing you
to slow things down (or speed things up!) to your liking, while a Rewind
feature allows you to run it back and try again if things don’t go quite as
planned. For the ultimate nostalgia trip, additional Display Settings, Display
Filters, and even various frames, including a variety of 3D-rendered arcade
cabinets, can add a classic touch to the visuals.
For avid arcade players, we have even more in store: Playing
games, earning in-game accomplishments, and completing challenges earns CASPO –
think of it like a running score tracker, or experience points. As you accrue
CASPO, you’ll earn new 2D and 3D frames to display in-game. Those looking to
see how they stack up against the competition can claim their place on the
online leaderboards in “Timed Challenge” and “Score Challenge” game modes for their favorite

A patch went live for Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S (coming soon for Xbox Series X|S) adjusting the behavior of “High Framerate Mode” and addressing the following bugs:
High Framerate Mode
When “High Framerate Mode” is set to “OFF”, the
game now limits framerate to 60fps.
Fixed a bug where the game freezes when fighting mirage Goliath during 3 player matching.
Fixed a bug where the player can get stuck when defeating Gilgamesh with a gas cylinder explosion using Vergil.
Fixed a bug where Nightmare will appear white when reflected in glass while disappearing, using Vergil and performing World of V.
Fixed a bug where the game would play the wrong sound effect when hitting a certain boss.
Fixed a bug where the Game Analysis Team’s jobs displayed as “Brazil Community Manager” in the credits of Vergil mode.
Fixed a bug where the game would display at 2K, 120Hz on certain monitors even when the system settings are set to output at 4K.
Fixed a bug where an application error would display during Urizen’s tentacle attack in Vergil mode.
UPDATE (Nov. 24): the patch is now live on Xbox Series X|S as well.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is finally here, just in time to showcase the true power of Next-Gen gaming! Whether you’re a SSSeasoned DMC player or jumping into it for the first time with DMC5SE, here’s a handy SPOILER-FREE recap guide of everything you get to play right from the start:
Playable Vergil (Now also available as DLC for Devil May Cry 5 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One)
If you’ve been following our news and updates since the Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition announcement,
you should know Vergil is a pretty big deal for this version of the game.
You’ll be able to start playing as him right away!
SIDE NOTE: a quick word of warning to newcomers. If you’re looking to
experience the full story of DMC5SE, I recommend starting with the Nero / V / Dante
campaign. The Vergil campaign assumes you have already played the original
story, and offers fewer story moments. And if you want to get a refresher on
the story of previous games, look for the brief overview “History of DMC” on
the main menu.
Vergil comes fully equipped with his signature weapons and
various forms of power. Of course, you’ll be able to power-up those weapons and
abilities even more with Red Orbs, but here’s a quick breakdown of his demonic
– his classic katana-style sword, given to him by his father, Sparda. Its
attacks are swift and capable of slicing demons with deadly precision.
– a set of gauntlets and boots with immense destructive power. Take the time to
charge its attacks and watch demons break apart.
Edge – a conjured sword resembling the Force Edge, capable of devastating
combos and crowd control.
Blades – summoned swords that Vergil uses as long-range projectiles. These
can also be summoned in various formations at the cost of Devil Trigger gauge.
– Vergil’s Devil Trigger manifested in a ghostly twin that shadows his moves.
You can even tinker with some of Doppelganger’s behaviors by issuing commands
with the d-pad (default controls).
Trigger – Vergil’s true power is unleashed, opening paths to brutal combos
and obliterating damage potential.
V – this powerful new technique cleaves out Vergil’s human form, V, and his
Familiars to shred and vaporize as many demons as possible.
Nero / V / Dante
Moving on from Vergil for now… DMC5SE also includes the entire contents of the 2019 release Devil May Cry 5. That means Nero, V and
Dante are fully playable in their own Missions, the Void and Bloody Palace
(after clearing the story once)!
WARNING: before braving Legendary Dark Knight mode (info below), I
definitely recommend playing through the main Nero / V / Dante story once to
unlock all their story-related abilities. There’s some serious character growth
tied to gameplay that you won’t want to miss!
Anyways, let’s take a hot second to recap their playstyles
and places in the story:
kicks off the story of DMC5 by losing
his Devil Bringer demon arm, but thanks to the mechanical genius of his friend
Nico, he quickly acquires new replacements known as Devil Breakers. These
powerful (but fragile) new arms join his trusty turbo-charged sword Red Queen and
Blue Rose hand cannon, and open his playstyle up to even more SSStylish combos
made his debut as the mysterious third protagonist in DMC5, bringing with him a completely new playstyle unlike anything
else in the Devil May Cry series.
Instead of fighting demons head on, V commands three Familiars: Griffon, Shadow
and Nightmare. But that doesn’t mean V is always safe! His primary Familiars (Griffon
and Shadow) have their own health gauges and can temporarily fall in battle.
And one more thing: V has to be the one to land the finishing blow on his
targets. Definitely a unique way to stylishly slay demons!
returns with plenty of new tricks! Aside from his four signature styles
(Trickster, Gunslinger, Swordmaster and Royal Guard) and his reliable Rebellion
sword and Ebony & Ivory pistols, he gets access to a wild arsenal of
weapons. Highlights include the Faust Hat (yes, a hat as a weapon) and the
Caveliere motorcycle (yes, a motorcycle as a weapon). I’m not joking.
As part of the Special Edition package, you’ll be getting a
handful of other nifty features and content. I’ve already got two lists in this
blog, so why stop now?
Turbo Mode – dial up the speed of gameplay by 20%! And we mean all gameplay: running speed, enemy movement, enemy attacks, jumps, jump cancels, Judgement Cut windows, Red Queen Exceed, Max Act windows, everything! Don’t worry though… the awesome music plays at regular speed.
Legendary Dark Knight Mode – this one is categorized as a difficulty option (similar to Human, Devil Hunter, etc.) but it’s a little more than that. Did I say “a little?” I meant “A LOT.” As in… the game will throw A LOT more enemies at you at once! It actually feels like a completely different way to play DMC5SE. Friendly reminder to power-up in the standard story mode before trying this out… unless you’re really up for the challenge.
Deluxe EditionSSStuff – along with the original DMC5 release in 2019, we launched a Deluxe Edition featuring an assortment of cool items. Highlights include four unique Devil Breakers for Nero, the variant “Cavaliere R” weapon for Dante, battle music tracks from previous games and one of the best features in gaming history: pre-viz live action cutscenes!
Ready for one more list? Of course you are. Next-Gen
features; let’s go:
Load Times – things load so fast we had to add an optional feature that
asks you to confirm mission start, so you’re not caught off guard. Also, so you
can read the loading screen tips 🙂
Frame Rates – up to 120fps, baby!
Tracing – SSShiny new tech that allows us to trace rays of light and track
as they bounce off surfaces, generating shadows and reflections in real time! NOTE: this feature is not available for DMC5SE
on Xbox Series S.
– this one is a bit subtler, but if you have headphones on, you can actually
pinpoint demons’ positions as they approach you based on audio cues alone!
Alright… I think that’s a pretty thorough roundup of all the
key info on Devil May Cry 5 Special
Edition; I just left some info out here and there to preserve any potential
Before I go… here’s another list! You thought I was done?
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition (Digital) – Available NOW on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition (Physical) – Available NOWon PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Vergil DLC for Devil May Cry 5 – Available NOW on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Attention devil hunters, today we just launched digital pre-orders for Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition, so we also wanted to share some key dates and important info ahead of launch, including the release date for Vergil DLC for Devil May Cry 5 (Dec. 15th, 2020) and an update on ray tracing for Xbox Series S.
DMC5SE Pre-Order Bonus
Starting right now, you can pre-order Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S digital stores. Anyone who purchases the game by November 18th, 2020 will get a free pack of 100,000 Red Orbs.

Or… you can be a total badass and just hold onto them, saving up for some of those pricey Taunts. Up to you.
DMC5 Vergil DLC
We mentioned this early on alongside our game announcement,
but never gave you a firm date or price. Well, it’s time to change that.
Our dev team has been hard at work in getting DMC5SE ready to launch the same day as
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, so Vergil will be arriving on PlayStation 4,
Xbox One and PC just a few weeks after that, on December 15th, 2020 and will cost just US$4.99 / €4.99 / £3.99.
To keep you motivated, we’ll leave you with a quick reminder that Vergil will be fully playable on Story Missions, The Void, and Bloody Palace.
An Update on Ray tracing
for Xbox Series X|S
We’re excited to bring Devil
May Cry 5 Special Edition to Xbox Series X|S with high frame rates up to
120 fps, enhanced 3D audio, reduced loading times, the Legendary Dark Knight
difficulty, Turbo Mode and playable Vergil on both consoles.
Fans playing Devil May
Cry 5 Special Edition on Xbox Series X will also experience the game in 4k
resolution and with Direct X Ray Tracing. Both consoles deliver amazing next
generation speed and performance, and while we are just now scratching the
surface of what they can do our teams are eager to continue exploring the full
capabilities of Xbox Series X|S in the future.
While ray tracing will be available as a downloadable title
update on Xbox Series X, Devil May Cry 5
Special Edition will not support ray tracing on Xbox Series S.
An additional title update for Resident Evil Resistance is available now, bringing new updates to the asymmetrical co-op survival horror game set in the Resident Evil universe! Since the game launched earlier this year, there’s been lots of free content added. You can now play as Jill Valentine, take direct control of the relentless pursuer Nemesis, explore multiple additional maps, and further customize both the Survivors as well as the Masterminds’ zombies and other creatures with costumes and gestures. Catch up on all the available content plus details on the latest update below!
and Foes Jill Valentine was able to escape the remains of Raccoon City, but can she
escape a series of twisted experiments? Jill joined the ranks of the Survivors
shortly after the game launched earlier this year, bringing her training and
skills as part of Raccoon City’s Special Tactics and Rescue Service
(S.T.A.R.S.) with her. With access to an arsenal of powerful weapons and the
ability to quickly dodge enemy attacks, Jill joins the ranks of the Survivors
as they attempt to escape sadistic experiments run by the Masterminds.
The selection of Masterminds expanded as well, adding a
familiar face to the roster: Resident
Evil 3’s own Nicholai. A master of weaponry in his own right, Nicholai
brings powerful firearms to bear against the Survivors, matched only by his
ability to take control of the ultimate bioweapon: Nemesis. Marking the first
time Nemesis has been playable in a Resident Evil game, you’ll be able to crush
the Survivors with powerful blows and unleash a rocket launcher to ensure they
stay down for the count.
City Tour Take a tour of the many different maps that are available! The Downtown,
Abandoned Park, Casino, and Research Facility maps that were all available at
launch still offer plenty of tricks, traps, and surprises in the hands of the
right Mastermind, while three other maps have been added since to keep the
Survivors on their toes.
The Prison map drops Survivors into the creepy corridors of
an old penitentiary, providing a mix of cramped corridors and open prison
cells. It’s perfect for a clever Mastermind to drop a few zombies in behind
bars or around corners to keep the Survivors’ heart rates up… and their chances
of survival down.
Meanwhile, two maps received remixed versions, keeping some
familiar sights while changing the layout to raise the stakes for both Survivors
and Masterminds alike. Re-visit the streets and buildings of Raccoon City with
the Uptown map, and enjoy a spook-tacular time at the Bemusement Park. No
ticket required, but you may have a hard time getting out once you’ve arrived
at this perilous park.
Master of Customizing Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and Survivors have quite an array of skills to choose from alongside customization options that allow them to personalize their abilities even further, with even more options added via updates since the game’s launch. Plus, additional gear has been added, giving the Survivors extra perks to help them overcome each nightmarish trial. Not to be outdone, Masterminds have also received new cards to play, allowing them to place their own modified traps and creatures to thwart the Survivors’ escape attempts.
That’s not counting all the other ways you can mix things up
as you play, with a multitude of bonus costumes, weapon skins, environmental
sprays, and even gestures for Survivors and Masterminds alike. Survivors can
get physical with luchador costumes or take a walk on the wild side with animal
costumes, while Masterminds can add a little flair to their shambling army with
unique zombie skins. There are few things scarier than an undead clown leaping
out from the shadows.
The Last Escape, For
Now With today’s update being the last planned update for Resident Evil Resistance for now, there’s lots of additional items
to look forward to this time around.
Today’s update includes two weapon types for Survivors and
new skill cards, as well as a new creature you may recognize from Resident Evil 3, the NE-α. It also
includes specific cards based on Mastermind personality types that can only be
used in certain areas. Also included are 35 Survivor skin color variations, 10
creature variations, and much more. Each character’s rank has also been upped
from 20 to 25, and the Mastermind’s rank cap has been adjusted to unlock all
skill cards at 20. Please check the official website for
That wraps up content updates for Resident Evil Resistance for now, but the development team will
continue to keep an eye out for any issues. A balance update is also in the
works, to be released in the next few days. We hope you continue to play and
enjoy duking it out as both Survivors and Masterminds! Resident Evil Resistance is included with Resident Evil 3, available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC!

Hunters of the Fifth Fleet, it’s time to pay a visit to a historical site, and confront a living legend…
Fatalis, the Legendary Black Dragon
Passed down from generation to
generation as just a legend, Fatalis is said to have wiped out an entire
kingdom overnight. Such power and potential makes for very scary stories, but
little evidence was ever made available. However, the Guild has now confirmed
the return of this mythical Elder Dragon; it’s heading straight to Castle
Schrade to finish what it had started.
Hunters, make sure you bring out your best gear and keep your wits about you venturing into this quest. Weapons from the castle’s last stand are still available—hopefully functional—and you’ll need all the help you can get to fend off the Legendary Black Dragon… and survive to tell the tales.
NOTE: Before you can take on the Special Assignment to hunt Fatalis, you must be MR 24 or higher, have completed at least the Safi’jiiva Recon Assignment, and have encountered Alatreon in its Special Assignment at least once.
Fall Seasonal Event – Fun Fright Fest
Our next seasonal event in Iceborne will be all about monsters. No,
not the ones you hunt in Quests; we’re talking creatures of darkness… demons,
succubi, and ghosts!
But don’t worry! These aren’t
real. At least not in Astera or Seliana anyway. So we’re decking out the
Seliana Gathering Hub with sinister new décor and tuning the music selection to
“spooky.” We invite you to partake in the activities and, if you’re brave
enough, try out our new seasonal food platter. Its nutritional value is a
mystery worth the dare.
And as per tradition, we’ll
feature a plethora of items to craft and collect: Armor Sets, Layered Armor,
Weapon Pendants, Palico Gear, a Poogie Outfit and more!
Fun Fright Fest will run from October 16 until November 5 UTC.
Arch-Tempered Velkhanaster Rank

Another Arch-Tempered Elder
Dragon was just spotted on the horizon. This time, it’s none other than the
flagship monster of Iceborne,
Velkhana! Get ready to brave the harsh conditions of the Hoarfrost Reach once
more and face off against the extremely powerful Arch-Tempered Velkhana.
Those who manage to vanquish this
ruthless Elder Dragon will be awarded a special Weapon Pendant and materials to
craft the versatile Velkhana γ (gamma) armor set.
Arch-Tempered Velkhana Event Quest will be live from October 16 UTC until November 5 UTC.
Clutch Claw Boost
With the arrival of new threats,
Hunters must ready themselves as best as they can to stand a chance. And to
help nudge the odds in your favor, we’re adding a new armor skill, called
Clutch Claw Boost.
This handy new skill will allow
heavy weapons (Great Sword, Hammer, Hunting Horn, Lance, Switch Axe, Charge
Blade, Heavy Bowgun) to also draw slinger ammo from monsters—similar to what
light weapons are capable of doing—while tenderizing a monster’s hide with
their Clutch Claw weapon attack.
Conversely, light weapons (Long Sword, Sword & Shield, Dual Blades, Gunlance, Insect Glaive, Light Bowgun, Bow) will also benefit from this skill by tenderizing monsters’ hides with a single Clutch Claw weapon attack, while also drawing slinger ammo.
Master Rank Layered Armor
Calling all Fashion Hunters! The feature you’ve been waiting for is finally here. As of this latest update, Master Rank armor sets will now be available to craft as Layered Armor! Some sets will be tied to upcoming Event Quest rewards, but most sets are now available for crafting, mixing and matching. Now’s your time to shine: go, and become the Master Fashion Hunters!
Elder Melder Decorations
Good news for Hunters looking for
some rare Decorations: the Elder Melder will now be able to craft some
especially elusive jewels:

Shield Jewel 2
Sharp Jewel 2
Dragonseal Jewel 3
Mighty Bow Jewel 2

Here come new challengers! Ryu

special limited time Challenge Quests (special quests that take place in the
Arena and offer you preset equipment choices). Fight hard and come out victorious
in these quests to craft these fierce Full Armor Sets:
“Down the Dark, Muddy Path”
“Empress in Full Bloom” (I, II, III)
“The Awakened Satsui No Hado” (I, II, III)
And if you’re looking for Layered
version of these outfits, you’ll want to complete these two Event Quests as

“The Heralds of Destruction Cry”
Street Fighter V Collaboration Challenge Quests will be available from October 1 UTC until November 5 UTC.
Good luck, and may the Sapphire Star light your way!
