Experience a fresh new world from Capcom, today

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is a new, Japanese-inspired IP from Capcom coming to PS5 and PS4, carrying on the spirit of new and innovative games throughout the company’s 40-year history. To get ready for the game’s launch on July 19, a demo for the game is available today! 

In the demo, take your first steps on the defiled Mount Kafuku and go hands-on with the game’s blend of action and strategy in a demo packed with content. 

Aside from the chance to try out the game’s unique mix of gameplay styles, this demo also has a unique twist! We’re challenging the community to collectively complete two challenges to earn free rewards in the full game for all players. You’ll want to play and work together to achieve them, as these rewards include collaboration content with the beloved 2006 action-adventure classic Okami.

In the first challenge, we’re tasking the community to defeat the Seethe creatures and cleanse the defilement to earn 1 billion crystals in-game. These crystals are earned throughout the normal course of gameplay, so play the demo and defeat the Seethe as much as you can! Completing this task will earn two Okami-inspired rewards for all players: a costume for Soh themed after the Celestial Brush God Amaterasu, and the Thunder Edge weapon inspired by one of Amaterasu’s Divine Instruments. Awoooooo~

Additionally, finding the 15 hidden Lucky Mallet easter eggs in the demo and sharing them on social media will earn the Waka costume for Yoshiro and the Okami BGM pack, allowing you to listen to an Okami collaboration soundtrack while playing Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess. Keep an eye on the official Kunitsu-Gami social media account for details and updates on the campaign!

The game is all about working together with the villagers to cleanse the world, so we hope you feel the spirit of collaboration as you play and earn these Okami rewards. 

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is available for pre-order now on PS5 and PS4 and the worldwide launch is fast approaching on Friday, July 19! All of us on the team are eager for everyone to go hands-on with the game and experience its unique gameplay for themselves.

Frank is back in Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster

This game is far from undead, as this new version has been brought back to life with Capcom’s RE Engine, bringing improved graphics, revamped lighting and shadows, and character models at up to 4K resolution and 60 FPS.  

If you’re new to Dead Rising, the story takes place in Willamette, Colorado. Freelance photojournalist Frank West journeys in search of a big scoop and finds himself in the vast Willamette Parkview Mall embroiled in a zombie outbreak with only 72 hours to uncover the truth. Created with a love of B-movie horror films, the original Dead Rising is beloved for its ironic self-serious tone, dark humor, zany characters, and unique gameplay mechanics. 

In the game, manage your time wisely to explore the varied areas of the mall, full of various goods that might prove useful when fighting through hordes of zombies or helping bring survivors to safety from the dangers of the mall and its inhabitants. Use anything you can as a weapon, wear outrageous outfits, and unleash death-defying moves as you bask in the over-the-top world of Dead Rising!

Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster comes with a host of adjustments and quality-of-life changes to make this updated version of the game sing on new platforms. Here’s a quick list of a few below. 

  • The ability to move while aiming
  • Improved controls and UI
  • Beautify your photos with filters
  • Auto-save functionality keeps your progress up to date. Manual saves are also supported
  • All NPC and survivor interactions are fully voiced
  • …and more

Pre-orders for Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster begin today. The Digital Deluxe version includes 17 additional costumes for Frank, as well as 17 special BGM tracks. Pre-order the game to receive 3 additional costumes, including Frank West’s original look from the 2006 game, the costume of Chuck Greene, the protagonist of Dead Rising 2, and a costume for the mascot of the mall, the Willamette Parkview Mall Bee. Pre-orders also come with three additional BGM tracks. 

We’ll have more to share on the game in the coming days and weeks leading up to its digital launch on September 19.
