Capcom Steams ahead

Lost Planet, Onimusha 3, Devil May Cry 3, Super Puzzle Fighter II and all future PC titles on Steam

Capcom has become the first major Japanese publisher to sign up with Valve to release past and present PC games via the unstoppable downloading service.

"Capcom is a worldwide leader in development and publishing of action adventure titles," said Gabe Newell, co-founder and president of Valve. "This initial set of Capcom titles coming to Steam, as well as those coming at a later date, are a perfect fit for the millions of action gaming fans connecting to Steam each week."

The high-fiving doesn't end there: "With the PC market becoming a larger part of our business, we're naturally focusing our attention on digital distribution. Steam is the right place for us to go with our titles. Valve has created a huge installed base of gamers who naturally fit with the profiles of the titles that Capcom develops."

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Onimusha 3, Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix are due over the coming weeks and months. All future PC titles will be made available via Steam too.
