As part of E3 this year, Capcom held their very own digital presentation to talk about their latest titles, upcoming updates, and to be frank with you, not a whole lot else. It might come as a refreshing change for some that the games talked about are out really soon, whereas other showcases are talking about 2022 titles, but Capcom didn’t mention anything further than July.
One of the biggest elements to the show was that we got to see more of a game that’s never been released in the West, ‘The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles’, and its new features. Other than that, the focus was squarely on ‘Monster Hunter’ and ‘Resident Evil’.
One of the biggest events in the yearly gaming calendar is fast approaching, and that means the biggest publishers in the industry are getting out in front and setting expectations for what they’ll be showcasing at E3. Capcom are the latest to reveal plans, and while it’s not hugely unexpected, there sounds like there will be some surprises to come from the Japanese publisher.
It’s not unusual for people to move companies after a game is shipped, but Peter Fabiano (who was the face for the marketing of ‘Resident Evil Village’) leaving Capcom after 13 years is a bit of a shock move, especially given his history and all the games he’s worked on in the past.
