Capcom will be hosting its own event with plans to reveal some new games and provide details on upcoming titles.
When the fact that the E3 event would not be held this year in any way was announced, many gamers were somewhat disappointed. With E3 being one of the biggest gaming events of the year, a few have wondered where their gaming news and revelations will come from. Following E3’s absence, many game companies have revealed that they will be holding their own events in June to reveal new titles and update information on games already in development. For example, Xbox and Bethesda will have a showcase on June 14, and now Capcom is also revealing its plans for a similar event.
The Capcom Showcase was first revealed through the Twitter game company Capcom itself. The event will be streamed live at 5 a.m. local time on June 14, bringing fresh information on all Capcom content to fans. The event is scheduled to last around 35 minutes, slightly longer than Sony’s recent State of Play presentation, but shorter than the Xbox & Bethesda Gaming Showcase event’s expected length. In addition, Capcom also had an extended showcase later to give fans even more insight into the games featured in the event.
Capcom is also promising more in-depth updates on games that have already been announced, such as Street Fighter 6. Because a gameplay trailer was revealed for Street Fighter 6 at the State of rollout. Play recently by Sony, gamers can take a closer look at the game’s gameplay in the Capcom Showcase.
While Street Fighter is one of the company’s biggest IPs, there will probably be many more titles that will stand out equally for 35 minutes at the rollout. The gaming community recently received official information that Resident Evil 4 will be remade, which means Capcom could spend some time during the event talking about the title. However, in terms of updating information about Resident Evil 9 or the new DLC for Resident Evil: Village, Capcom has been quite quiet.
The Capcom Showcase will take place around the time Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest is held and the day before the Xbox & Bethesda Gaming Showcase. Along with potential Resident Evil and Street Fighter appearances, some other Capcom IPs could also have surprise revelations, such as Capcom’s new RPG Dragon’s Dogma 4.
