These days, it seems as though Capcom is in a consistent state of re-invention, frequently dipping into their back catalogue to re-boot and re-imagine their old games, as seen recently with this month’s release of Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 and, in a few weeks, Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

3DS

Only a month into the new year and 2011 already is shaping up to be a pretty exciting time for video games. With the end of the current generation of consoles still a few years away, the handheld market is quickly developing into a crowded field of challengers. 2010 saw a radically altered state to handheld gaming; the proliferation of smartphones and release of the iPad found gamers playing games on all-new consoles, while the previous handheld champion, the Nintendo DS, saw hardware and software sales decline.

In what I can only assume is another ace judgment by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board, the ESRB’s website announced today an M rating for the upcoming Epic Games project, citing intense violence, sexual themes, and the use of alcohol as justifications for the mature rating.

Great Scott!!
