Capcom held a little shindig last night where the enigmatic Keiji Inafune told a captivated audience that Capcom are moving well and truly forward and in no certain words, that they were essentially leading the charge as a Japanese-based publisher embracing Western development and the Western market.

This was demonstrated with a stunning teaser showing off a reboot of the Devil May Cry series now just called DmC. Much darker and more focused, the teaser also revealed a surprising twist - it's being developed by Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword/Enslaved). We'll have this up shortly.

It was also revealed at the event that Capcom had outright purchased Blue Castle Games, the guys behind Dead Rising 2 and that we'd also be seeing a Dead Rising epilogue in the form of more Xbox 360 exclusive content. Dead Rising 2: Case West will actually put DR2 star Chuck Green on the screen next to the first game's unlikely hero, Frank West.

Finally Asura's Wrath was also unveiled, a new IP from Japanese developer, CyberConnect2 (yep, that's their name) which is "inspired by Asian mythology" but will be "fused with science fiction". We're also told it will "redefine the action genre by delivering unprecedented levels of dynamism, drama and interaction".

There's more to come from Capcom over the course of the next few days too, so stay tuned.

Nintendo pretty much "reboot" Zelda and Super Mario once every few years since forever, only a few of the games have continuity with others.

Streetfighter 4 is essentially a reboot of Street Fighter, as is the new Mortal Kombat. Its hardly anything new.
