Capcom Announces Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City

Rumors swirled last week about a brand new Resident Evil title that looks to break the mold of the previous games, and today, Capcom has confirmed that game.  Called Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, the game is a reimagining of the events that took place in Resident Evil 2 and 3.  The game is a "team based shooter" first and foremost, being developed by Slant Six Games who have created several SOCOM games including the excellent SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 on the PSP.

New Gunslinging Dungeon Siege 3 Character Revealed

We had a hands on preview of Dungeon Siege 3 a few weeks ago. We covered two of the four playable characters: Lucas, a warrior; and Anjali, a fire sorceress. Square Enix has been keeping the identity of the remaining characters under wraps.  Today, they released a trailer showcasing Katarina, a pistol-packing warrior who adds gunplay to the mix of sword and sorcery combat.  She's even got a puppy!  A giant, man-eating puppy!  The new trailer shows off some of her moves and abilities.  It looks like Katarina will be a welcome addition in the fight against Jeyne Kassynder.

Oh, the Places You'll Go... In Conduit 2

Yup, Conduit 2 still isn't out yet; however, things are still looking good for its newest release date, April 19th. This game has suffered a good number of delays, but if it's in the name of the multiplayer, that's fine by us. To tide us over, High Voltage has released a trailer of a bunch of the locations players will visit in the game. Whereas the first game had you mostly confined to the area of Washington D.C., its sequel will provide a large variety of locations to tickle your fancy.

Bonk: Brink of Extinction Is... Extinct

Sad news comes our way today, with news of a co-op classic retro-remake cancellation.  The ironically titled Bonk: Brink of Extinction is going the way of the dodo and the Tasmanian tiger.  The game was announced in 2009, and we hadn't heard much about it since then.  Developer Hudson cancelled the title, along with a Bomberman game for the 3DS, in the aftermath of the recent disaster in Japan.  Though disappointing for fans of classic co-op like myself, the news is certainly understandable given the circumstances.  Perhaps Bonk will turn up again at some later date; we can always hope.  But for now, you'll have to headbutt your friends in real life instead of over XBLA or PSN.

Nintendo's 3DS handheld console launches today in the UK and Australia, while the system will launch in North America on Sunday the 27th.  Priced at $250, this marks Nintendo's most expensive handheld to date, but also its most ambitious.  The main feature is obviously the glasses free 3D screen for games and video, but there's a lot more packed into the little hand held than meets the eye.
