Capcom unveils BC: Rearmed 2

Plus: Okamiden in 2011, lots of DLC news.

Capcom has lifted the lid on three titles it's got lined up for a 2011 release.

Topping the bill is Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, as reported earlier.

Then there's Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, which sees Nathan Spencer facing a new, "technologically sophisticated" foe named General Sabio. He'll have upgraded powers, including the ability to jump. The game will be released via Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in Q1 of next year.

Or how about a bit of Okamiden, the DS sequel to Wii effort Okami? It's set many months later and stars Chibiterasu, "a young sun god who is summoned to protect and restore the land". Using a "majestic celestial brush", you will get to, well, do some majestic celestial painting, presumably. This one's just down for "2011" at the moment.

Meanwhile, Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes has been given a release date of "fall" this year. Expect fistfights, swords, spears, bows, guns, samurais, etc. Devil May Cry 4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi is at the wheel, and the game is in development for Wii and PS3.

Next up is Ghost Trick Phantom Detective, first announced at last year's Tokyo Game Show and now confirmed for a release in the US and Europe. It's brought to you by the director of the Ace Attorney series and follows the adventures of Sissel, "a murder victim who becomes a ghost and gains a special power to posses and manipulate objects".

There's also news of the Dead Rising 2 Prologue which is being released exclusively for Xbox 360 prior to the game's release. Titled Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, the downloadable offering will introduce new hero Chuck Greene. It's set two years after the Wilammete incident and three days before Dead Rising 2 begins. Together with his daughter, Chuck must battle hordes of zombies in the desert town of Small Creek.

Capcom has also revealed that Dead Rising 2 will feature a co-op mode. The game has been confirmed for a 31st August release in North America, so presumably the European date of 3rd September still stands too.

The new Super Street Fighter IV Tournament Mode DLC has been given a release date of 15th June for both Xbox Live and PSN. It will be free to download. New costume packs are coming on 27th April, again to both consoles - the first one, titled Super Challengers 1 Pack, will feature costumes for Hakan, Makoto, Guy, Dudley and Dee Jay.

Lost Planet 2 is also getting new DLC. Map Pack #1 will be out on the same day as the game, 11th March. The extra maps, Helix and Back to the Island, are set on an underwater mining facility and an island with "wide open spaces and compact interiors".

And finally, the Silverstone Circuit will feature in the first downloadable update for MotoGP 09/10. There's no word on a release date for the DLC, but the game is already out.
