Capcom has begun to tease what we can expect from them this year's Tokyo Game Show, which will begin on September 15th. There are a few things to be excited about, though.
On the 17th and 18th of September, Capcom will have four games available in playable demos, with Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection topping the list for Switch-bound titles. The company has also announced that Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be present at its booth.
The Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection was announced just two months ago and is expected to be released sometime next year, so its appearance on TGS is certainly welcomed. The game will collect all ten games from the original GBA franchise, while also including a gallery and music mode, which promises to collect over 150 songs from the series.
Capcom will offer two livestreams during TGS: the Capcom Online Programme and the Street Fighter 6 Special Programme. Although neither of these will be conducted in person, it is the latter that we want to emphasize to Nintendo fans.
The Online Programme, which will air on September 15th at 3pm BST, promises to provide a pre-recorded stream with information about a wide variety of future Nintendo projects. Although it has a higher likelihood of appealing to our Nintendo interests, there has been no official announcement for this stream.
We would not expect much from Nintendo during the next seasons, including games like Exoprimal or Resident Evil 4 Remake (along with Street Fighter 6), but who knows? Perhaps we'll hear about the Ace Attorney reboot that we've long dreamed of (we doubt it).
Capcom's TGS schedule has been available for the first time on its official website.
The Tokyo Game Show will be held from September 15 to 18th, and we anticipate further businesses to announce their programs in the next few weeks.
