News: Capcom can do no wrong.



Capcom is really taking this "lost NES game" gimmick seriously when it comes to the recently revealed Dark Void Zero. Just look at the image that will greet players on their DSi after they boot up the game:



More than just window dressing, gamers will actually have to blow on the DSi's microphone to continue. Which is just outstanding.

Capcom has also released nine more screenshots of the game in action along with the details behind the daring "rediscovery" of Dark Void Zero:

As the ?80s were drawing to a close, the developers at Capcom began work on a top secret project that aimed to set new standards for the platformer genre. That game was called ?Dark Rift?, and it blended the intense shooting action of Section Z with the latest innovations in platform jumping from Mega Man. In order to properly fulfill the producer's vision for Dark Rift (later renamed Dark Void), the hardware engineering team at Capcom was enlisted to design and produce an all-new chipset that would be included in every cartridge, enabling huge numbers of sprites and never-before-seen special effects to be displayed on the aging NES platform and the PlayChoice-10 NES arcade cabinet.

You can read more (and take a gander at DVZ's retro "boxart") at the Capcom-Unity blog.
