Capcom has a lot of game in hand. Enough to advertise your own digital event. A privileged showcase for its news and releases announced and to be presented that you can now mark on your calendar: the Capcom Showcase 2022 will be held in the early hours of next June 14 at 00:00 hoursor 3:00 PM PT on June 13 depending on where you live.
And it is that we are left without an E3 2022, but all the big companies will continue their plans as normal. Sony opened the season with its State of Play and Microsoft and Bethesda ask for a double turn to exhibit their novelties. In the case of Capcom, we are already told that their digital event will last for nothing less than 35 minutes, and it is already ahead of us that there will be talk of new and already announced games. Which leads us to ask: what do they have in the oven?
Bearing in mind that only in June the company has two really interesting launches and that already has reserved four privileged places within what will be a 2023 spectacular, our expectations are through the roof. Precisely for this reason in Extra Life We’ll break down what we expect to see at the Capcom Showcase, as well as what we want to see on display.
Capcom’s plans for June
Those from Osaka do not stitch without thread, and after shaking us with their State of Play announcements, they resume the conversation about what we will play starting this month, which includes an essential compilation for those passionate about fighting and nothing less that a new chapter in the successful saga monster hunter.
Capcom Fighting Collection
- Where: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC
- When: June 24
Capcom’s 90s arcade past resurfaces with a bang: The Capcom Fighting Collection will bring together 10 fighting arcades with rarities, rollback netcode and tons of extras in one essential package. You can play it on the first day of summer, because we all know that fighting games are enjoyed more and better with the arrival of good weather.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunset
- Where: Switch and PC
- When: June 30
Have you finished the story mode of the essential Monster Hunter Rise yet? Well you should. Not only because it is a great game, but because it will be the key to its Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion: more beasts, more equipment and weapons, more action and epicness, new scenarios and the long-awaited arrival of the Master Rank. Big things are coming.
Let’s talk about the future of Resident Evil and the pending contents of RE Village
The phenomenon around the Resident Evil series continues to rise: Capcom will not only continue to explore the future of the plot, but also relaunch its key installments, as well as giving them a new form and more content for the fans of old and those to come.
The promised Resident Evil Village DLCs and the jump to virtual reality
- Where: PlayStation, Xbox and PC
- When:to be announced
The Resident Evil Village nightmare is not over. Last year Capcom announced that the good commercial reception of the game opened the door to new stories and the production of new content that will expand its plot. It is time to know when we can cross it.
On the other hand, whether we have already survived the charms of Lady Dimitrescu or if we want to live it to the fullest, it is worth remembering that a 2021 version of the game is underway for virtual reality systems. We want to know more about the matter.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard and the next-gen remakes
- Where: PS5, Xbox Series X/S
- When: 2022
The saga that flooded zombie video games will dress up for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S this year, and best of all, it will do it for free: Capcom announced last March that the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 as well as Resident Evil 7 will come to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and if we already had them, the upgrade will be free. The bad? We do not have a specific date. At least, yet.
Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Where: PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC
- When: 2023
Undoubtedly, the announcement of the Resident Evil 4 Remake was the first bombshell of the summer events. We know that it will arrive in 2023, and we are very clear about why the original is one of the pillars of modern action and survival games. But, of course, that does not mean that we want to see a little more of the game. Or, at least, about the content for PlayStation VR 2.
Resident Evil Re:Verse
- Where: PS4, Xbox One, PC
- When: 2022
We are going to be completely honest with you: of all the future contents of Resident Evil, the announced and several times postponed multiplayer of Resident Evil Village It is not positioned among those we most expect. However, we have not forgotten the project. Will Resident Evil Re:Verse have improved since the testing sessions? We cross our fingers for it to be so.
Resident Evil, the Netflix series
- Where: Netflix
- When: July 14
We close our review of what we hope to see from Resident Evil with the only project that already has a date: the new Netflix television series. And beware, technically it opens with the event itself, so we expect Capcom to take advantage of it to promote its new foray into the small screen. Seeing how the current bar is in terms of adaptations, it is easy for him not to get too scalded.
A fact to keep in mind: the 35th anniversary of Street Fighter
2022 is a great milestone for Capcom’s star fighting saga: the celebration of the 35 years since the debut of Ryu, Ken and Sagat in recreational The World Warriors have evolved as much as the video game industry itself, and the truth is that their future is especially promising.
Street Fighter 6
- Where: PS4, PS5, Xbox Ones X/S and PC
- When: 2023
Capcom put half of the cards on the table for the highly anticipated Street Fighter 6 during the State of Play, and a good part of what was kept up his sleeve leaked not long after. In any case, we can’t wait to see a little more about the game that aims to champion next-gen fighting games, even when it comes out on PS4.
Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium
- Where: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC
- When: July 22
Were you missing any of the classic arcade games from the house in Capcom Arcade Stadium? The good news is that your new selection of games it’s almost down, and adds no less than 32 machines to that spectacular digital room. We expect Ryu and Chun Li to be present at some of them.
The two aces up the sleeve and three sagas that deserve to return
So far we have reviewed what we expect or have more options to peek at the Capcom Showcase Capcom 2022. Now we have to get wet with what is not so clear and that we still want to see. Some titles have been promised for 2023, others it is time to recover them.
- Where: PS5, Xbox Series, PS4, Xbox One, PC
- When: 2023
Fighting waves of dinosaurs with robot attacks is one of those crazy things that reminds us of the most rogue Capcom. The appointment is next year, and despite the fact that many of us do not need more to celebrate the idea, a new portion of gameplay would make us happy in the morning.
- Where: PS5, Xbox Series, PC
- When: 2023
If we were told by the only two PRAGMATA trailers given that this is a Hideo Kojima game, we wouldn’t doubt it too much. In any case, it is time to clarify a little more what is happening between now and its rescheduled launch for 2023.
Capcom renewed Onimusha’s license and his return has been rumored for years. We don’t know what they plan to do with the license, but we’re not going to settle for just restoring the first game.
There are many sagas that have been dormant for too long. Dino Crisis It is one of the things that hurts us the most. That she premieres and puts a finishing touch to the saga of jurassic-park in theaters more or less coinciding with the event does nothing but fill us with hope.
Marvel vs. capcom
We are definitely in a perfect time to return to the golden age of crossovers between Marvel and Capcom. Mutants may return to the front lines, and there are plenty of characters from both companies whose popularity has exploded lately. Still, if Capcom were to restore and republish Marvel vs. Capcom 2 with a good version and rollback netcode we would be more than satisfied.
