Spark Unlimited is working on an “adventure series reboot,” for Capcom according the latest rumor in PSM3. That’s not all though: the game is supposedly Onimusha 4. No word on how they know this. Last year, Yoshinori Ono said it was time to resurrect the Onimusha series, but he would like to see it “progress beyond the standard single-player adventure,” he said. The last Onimusha console title was released in 2006. Thanks, CVG.

Lost Planet 3 developer Spark Unlimited is working on something pretty mysterious, according to Superannuation’s regular column on Kotaku. A number of clues suggest the team has “a bold new take on 3rd Person Action/Horror based on an established console franchise” in the works. The Unreal Engine-based “action/slasher” will have a multiplayer component. Capcom has denied it has anything to do with it – so not Onimusha, then, but I put a picture on anyway because I’m kind of mean like that. Thoughts? Theories?

We missed this yesterday in the scrum of the Captivate embargo lifting. Capcom confirmed in a press release that Lost Planet 3 will be coming to PC alongside PS3 and 360 early next year. The lack of a PC version was noted in the game’s debut trailer when it emerged before its official embargo. And now you know. And remember, kids: knowing is half the battle.

Alternate reality World War FPS Turning Point wasn’t aimed at the mass market, developer Spark has claimed, and was instead a “high concept” game.
“You know, I think that when you try to do games that are about a mass market, and Turning Point is definitely a high concept idea, that with the time and money we had we did the best to execute on, our target was not really the core gamer,” said Spark CEO Craig Allen. “I think that we’re finding that the people who look at it like, ‘Is this going to be fun, something I can drop into, in a world I haven’t seen before and have a good time?’ really love the game.
“People that are looking at it with more of a critical eye of ‘Is this game revolutionary, is it doing play mechanics I’ve never seen before, is it driving new technology?’… it was never meant to do those things. If people look at it in the right way, I think they really enjoy what they see. You can certainly look at it and say it’s not revolutionary, so those opinions are certainly a lot more critical.”
