Capcom Seeking Beta Testers For Ghostbusters Mobile Game

Capcom has a mobile Ghostbusters game in the works and it is currently seeking beta testers.

If you head over to Capcom's Unity website, you can take a survey in order to sign yourself up for the mysterious beta. The questions of the survey don't reveal or even hint at what the game is, how it will play, or if it is based on the original Ghostbusters film franchise, or the upcoming reboot. Instead, it just seeks details like gender, age, and gaming habits.

2009 saw the release of a major Ghostbusters video games that reunited the original cast, but it was developed by Terminal Reality and published by Atari (read our review here, watch us play the Wii version in a recent episode of Replay here). 2013 and 2014 saw the release of mobile Ghostbuster games from Beeline Interactive and a pinball game from Farsight Studios respectively. It's unclear if what Capcom has in store is affiliated with those games in any way.

There's also a Ghostbusters board game in the works, which you can read about here.

Our Take
Mobile doesn't inspire much confidence for the return of a beloved franchise, but who knows. With Capcom behind the wheel, maybe it could be something special. I'd certainly like to see more. – The Feed

Marvel Vs. Capcom Spidey Gets Knocked Out In Marvel’s Spider-Verse #2

Forgive the multiple comic book stories tonight, but this one was too good to ignore. Marvel brought together a number of different incarnations of Spider-Man for an event called Spider-Verse, opening up the door to all sorts of clever nods.

The premise is that the villain Morlun is hunting all of the Spider Totems across the multiverse. In response, the Spideys team up and fight back.

There have been jokes about Spider-Man’s broadway appearance in Turn Out the Dark, the old Electric Company episodes, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and (of course) an appearance by the Porktaculuar Spider-Ham. Today, we were made aware of the appearance of one of the many versions of the character that have appeared in gaming.

The page above comes from Spider-Verse #2 (out today), written by Dan Slott, artist Kris Anka, and colorist Chris Sotomayor. If you’ve ever wondered in which plane of the Marvel multiverse Capcom fight games take place, ponder no more. It’s Earth-30847.

Thanks for taking us for a ride, gentlemen.
