Resident Evil 7 took the Internet by storm and was hailed as a glorious return to the survival horror roots that made the franchise famous. Not only was the game fantastic, but Capcom announced that gamers would receive free DLC in the form of the Not A Hero campaign. To show how much the company wants to do right by its fans, Capcom released a downright classy video to announce the DLC will be delayed.

The apology video was no-frills and did not beat around the bush. Producer Masachika Kawata and director Koshi Nakanishi started the video by apologizing that the DLC will be delayed. They explained that they believe the DLC, while almost finished, would not meet the high expectations of gamers set by Resident Evil 7. According to Kawata and Nakanishi, the quality of Not A Hero is less than that of the base game, and the development team will need more time to match the experience set by Resident Evil 7’s campaign — something I do not believe can be done simply because that campaign was so good.

After Kawata and Nakanishi had their say, executive producer Jun Takeuchi started his own video segment. He mostly repeated what was already said, including the apology, but he also added a heartfelt thank you to everyone who enjoyed Resident Evil 7. Furthermore, Takeuchi stated that the dev team is also working on yet another piece of DLC alongside Not A Hero. Takeuchi promised that this new DLC will also be up to the standards gamers have set for Resident Evil 7.

This apology video gives me hope that Capcom can return to the days when it set the standards for survival horror. The Resident Evil 7 dev team could easily have continued work on Not A Hero as planned and not changed a thing. Resident Evil 7 fans would likely have enjoyed it, but Kawata, Nakanishi, and Takeuchi all agreed that they had to improve the DLC to make it even better than it already was. They did not need to, but they did. They also agreed to develop and release an extra, possibly unplanned, bit of DLC alongside Not A Hero. Is this unnamed DLC an apology for making fans wait so long? Perhaps, but if the dev team can deliver on its promises, then both DLC packs will be amazing. Given that Resident Evil 7 was a spectacular game, I have no doubt the devs will not only deliver on the promises but they will exceed them.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

You can now preorder the official Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree strategy guide

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
