Breaking News : Capcom Licence Finalised! And the Winner is…

1 min read

Capcom There’s been a lot of rumour, confusion and even discourtesy lately with regards to the status of Capcom distribution in South Africa. Hopefully, we’ll be able to put that all behind us, as it seems we finally have details of a distributor.

A post on the 360 forums by Am_nesia, an employee of informs us that the licence has been awarded to Nu-Metro. This comes at an opportune time for Nu-Metro; Two of the most hotly anticipated games of the first quarter – Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5 – are Capcom titles. Hopefully the distribution fiasco hasn’t lead to any delays, but with Street Fighter IV’s imminent release on the 17th, a delay-free local launch seems unlikely.

It was speculated that Ster Kinekor was renegotiating the Capcom deal, but it seems they’ve been unsuccessful. With recent rumours that they’ve lost Konami too, one can’t help but wonder what’s happening at Ster Kinekor.

While this all seems above board, we’ve yet to receive official confirmation, so we’re keeping this tagged as rumour.

We’re doing all we can to get offical confirmation, so watch this space!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
