Did you miss out on last night’s Capcom Showcase? We’ve got you covered, with a look at everything that showed up on the small screen.
The good(ish) news is that if you skipped out on the Capcom Showcae you didn’t miss a torrent of new information. That’s not to say the showcase was absolutely terrible, but we knew ahead of time that there weren’t going to be any massive revelations and that it was mostly going to cover titles that had already been revealed.
Capcom still hasn’t announced the Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth HD collection which, every year, we hope against hope for. But the Resident Evil franchise did get a lot of coverage, including a reveal of the upcoming Resident Evil Village DLC. Here’s what was on show:
- We got another look at Exoprimal, essentially a mash-up of Left 4 Dead and Dino Crisis. It’s due for a 2023 release it was revealed that there’d be a closed network test.
- Capcom also showed off the upcoming Capcom Fighting Collection and Capcom Arcade Stadium 2nd. They confirmed the 32 titles coming to Capcom Arcade Stadium 2nd, which would have been more of a surprise had they not been listed on the Japanese Xbox Store a few days back (thanks Siliconera).
- Monster Hunter Rise’s massive expansion, Sunbreak, got a look in, confirming that a demo is arriving this June 14th.
- Street Fighter 6 didn’t have a substantial showing, though more information is set to arrive later this year.
- Dragon’s Dogma 2.. was not announced. But it was announced that Capcom would put out a “10 Years of Dragon’s Dogma” on June 16th 3:00PM PDT and 11:00PM BST, through their YouTube channel.
- Now on to Resident Evil. Resident Evil RE:Verse, the multiplayer mode originally meant to ship with Resident Evil Village will be arriving this October 28th. Whether anyone still cares is another matter given a) it’s been a year since Village came out and b) Resident Evil multiplayer modes aren’t generally that good.
- The Resident Evil 4 remake was shown again, and is still set for a March 24th 2023 release, but it’s confirmed that one of the few differences between this and the original is that you can shoot while moving.
- Resident Evil Village is getting an October re-release as a Gold Edition, October 28th be prices.
- The Gold Edition will feature the Winter’s Expansion, which will also be available separately. It’s not been absolutely confirmed but it’ll likely be paid DLC. The Winter’s Expansion includes a Mercenaries mode where, amongst other things, you can become Lady Dimitrescu. It’ll also feature Shadows of Rose, a chunk of story DLC where you play as Ethan Winters’ daughter, who dives into the Megamycete’s shared memory to rid herself of her powers. A third person mode will also be included.
- Finally, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 7 now have next-gen patches which are out right now.
You can watch the presentation above, courtesy of The Game Awards and the Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 patches should auto-download. Now, if only Capcom would give Resident Evil: Code Veronica an overhaul..
