Capcom’s TGS press conference today saw some big announcements, such as Ninja Theories DMC and a Dead Rising 2 epilogue in the 360-exclusive Case: West. Hit the link for all the new, screens and videos.

Dev head Keiji Inafune opened preceedings by addressing remarks he’s previously made about the Japanese games industry being dead.

The main theme of Capcom’s press conference in Tokyo today, he said, is that “the Japanese industry is not dead as long as Capcom is still around.”

Case: West, Blue Castle acquired

More than 500,000 units of Dead Rising 2: Case Zero have now been sold, Inafune said. The prequel sold more than 300,000 units in its first week on sale at the beginning of September.

The conference’s first major piece of new was that Dead Rising 2 will also get an epilogue in Dead Rising 2: Case West, obviously involving Frank West from the first game.

Both West and Dead Rising 2′s Chuck will appear in the game, which, as with Case Zero, will be a 360 exclusive.

Inafune then said that Capcom has purchased Canadian Dead Rising 2 developer, Blue Castle. The studio’s to be renamed Capcom Games Studio Vancouver.

All the first screens and art are below. Here’s the Case: West trailer:

Asura’s Wrath coming from Cyber Connect 2

The conference’s second major piece of news was the announcement of an Unreal 3-powered action title called Asura’s Wrath.

The 360 and PS3 title is in development at Cyber Connect 2, and features the ability to summon a god to defeat enemies.

Footage of the title showed the hero, Asura, being spiked with spears then dealing with enemies in traditional hack ‘n’ slash fashion. Some kind of space Buddha was seen poking a planet. Wacky Japanese kids.

There was no date, but the developers said it was a way out.

Get the first shots down below. Here’s the trailer:

Ninja Theory’s DMC confirmed

Another new IP was then announced. It’s called DMC, and, as expected, it’s being developed by Ninja Theory. It’s being done in America, apparently. Get full details here.

A trailer showed Dante in a red and black coat with two pistols and a sword being asked his name in a mental institution. He confirmed his named is Dante at the end of the trailer before leaping through a window.

The anti-hero was shown as being younger than in previous Devil May Cry games.

The game is called DMC with Devil May Cry as a subtitle. Inafune said it was “too early” to put a date on it.

Inafune closed out without any mention of a new Resident Evil title, as had been hoped.

The first screens and HD movie are below. He looks as though he’s had a bad day, right?

    What else have Blue Castle done?

    Edit – The Bigs… which was average at best. Well, I guess we’ll see how they did with DR2 soon enough.

    I find it amusing that I bought Case Zero for my 360 through complete lack of choice, then I will buy DR2 itself for my PC then go back to 360 to get the Epilouge.

    I don’t really know if they were meant to tempt me into buying it for the 360 but it kinda failed.

    New game developed by Cyber Connect 2 – not so good.

    sigh not digging at all that so called “DMC” …

    I dont even wanna go over the artstyle wich i find wrong for so many reasons … like now Dante being a goth hipster . my only hope is its some kid calling himself dante , and not the real one .

    WWhere i’m even more worried is that DMC , even in its horribly dumbified episode 4 , got a combat system that is actually quite deep … and not as buttons mashing friendly as Ninja Theory now usual antics .

    What have Blue Castle done to deserve a purchase?

    Some crappy Baseball games? Re-skinning DR and fixing few of it’s issues?

    Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE DR2:Case Zero and will probably love the full game. But I love it because I loved Dead Rising despite it’s obvious, horrendous flaws… DR2 isn’t really an improvement.

    Blue Castle have yet to prove themselves to me.

    Case West trailer: Did they give away DR2′s story?

    Asura’s Wrath: Did they steal Gearbox’s Borderland Unreal engine?

    DMC: Ninja theory are gonna nail it! I wonder who Andy Serkis will play in this game?

    Please, if DMC is being made in America…keep Japanese people in the heads of the project! America has such GREAT games but we don’t want the Silent Hill (origins, homecoming, shattered… andany other from now on) treatment ANYMORE.

    Two things

    1) All those Silent Hill games were made by unproven developers, DMC is being made by Ninja Theory… proven to be a capable studio.

    2) Shattered Memories was great
