Game Cancelation and Multiple Game Delays Due to Earthquake

With the situation in Japan, people have a lot more important concerns than releasing video game software. Hence a handful of titles will be affected. As mentioned in a previous post, Yakuza of the End has been pushed back to a To Be Announced release.  Sony’s Motor Storm 3 Apocalypse has been pushed back to a TBA release as well, this title should still be scheduled for a March 16th release in Europe and an April release in North America, but we will update you if the situation changes.


Oddly enough, despite not having any disaster themes to them, Capcom has also delayed the release of the Jill and Shuma Gorath DLC for Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There’s no word on if this also effects the North American release, but we’ve reached out to Capcom and we will update you when they respond.


And finally, the long running series Disaster Report canceled its upcoming fourth entry. The title takes place in Japan during a crisis state, covering all those currently touchy subjects like earthquakes. Unfortunately for IREM, the title was near completion, so all that money is down the drain for now.


Either way, a few delays and a cancellation of a title doesn’t even come close to all the devastation in Japan right now. We hope the best for not just game developers, but everyone in Japan and their families who has had to, and are still going through this tough time.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will also features simplified launch attacks using a single button called the “Exchange Button.” These launch attacks can be countered if the other player successfully predicts the exact attack the player will be using.

Four more characters have been confirmed for the line up. Although in the past, they had been strongly hinted at. From the Marvel side, Dead Pool and Captain America were confirmed. On Capcom’s side, Dante and Felicia were confirmed as well.

Capcom also detailed some basic details for a couple of characters. Chris Redfield will use a Shotgun and a Shock Stick from Resident Evil 5. Dead Pool has a teleport move that starts to malfunction if it is overused.

A few more details were announced about Dead Pool that could make his move set fairly interesting. Dead Pool will have moves that will break the fourth wall. For example, Dead Pool can pull his own health bar from the top of the screen, and then beat his opponents with it.

You can check out the first leaked screen shots after the jump.
