Capcom’s E3 showcase short. Really short. But even with a short presentation, they still were able to surprise us with their announcements!
Resident Evil News
It’s been a month since Resident Evil: Village has released, and now it is time to make an already good game even better. There will be a New Co-op mode coming out next month on all platforms. The Co-op mode is named “Resident Evil: Verse” and it’s something different from your usual Resident Evil.
Resident Evil: Verse is a Co-op mode where players will fight against friends and their favorite members of the Resident Evil cast. This Co-op mode celebrates Resident Evil’s 25th anniversary, and players can obtain this mode as soon as they buy the most recent Resident Evil game – Resident Evil: Village.
Monster Hunter Updates!
Monster Hunter fans should be excited with the amount of good news the series gotten this week. A new sequel to Monster Hunter called Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wing of Ruins is dropping worldwide on July 9th, 2021. This Monster Hunter adventure is nothing like other Monster Hunter adventures; players can now befriend monsters and work alongside them for more engaging combat scenarios.
The story-based RPG is dropping a free title update which includes the new monstie, ‘Palamute’, on July 15th, 2021. Players can also start playing the game on June 25th, 2021 once the trial version releases. Data that is saved on the trial version is transferable to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wing of Ruin upon release!
Capcom also announced more updates for Monster Hunter fans. The Ver.3.1 update will be available to players on June 24th, 2021. On June 18th, Capcom Collab 1 will be available. This update has Event Quest Rewards for the Palico Layered Armor and a new companion called “Tsukino”. Ver.3.1 will also drop another update on June 24th, and that update will be downloadable content and event quests. At the end of July, the Ver.3.2 update will be available to players. Lastly by August, Ver.3.3 – Capcom Collab 3 – will be available.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
Releasing worldwide on July 27th, 2021 is one of the best detective games ever. Platforms such as PS4, the Nintendo Switch, and Steam will have The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles available.
Two new gameplay features are also dropping on the same day of release. Dance of Deduction and Summation Examination are the names of the features and they bring ten new cases for players to solve.
In Dance of Deduction, play as the main character Ryunosuke and help find clues to help identify the errors in Sherlock Holmes’ logic against these cases. On top of that, Summation Examination will let players play as Ryunosuke and convince six jurors of the innocence of the client. Go against the jurors who go through their explanations of reaching a guilty verdict!
Capcom ProTour 2021
The Capcom ProTour 20201 is happening. Join or watch the most intense Street Fighter 5 tournament where players will compete for a chance to win a split amount of a $5,000 prize pool!
For more information, check out the CapComFights social media accounts to stay updated on the tournament and other Street Fighter V events.
Even with a short presentation, Capcom didn’t fail to excite their fans. Updates and new features are coming to popular games like Resident Evil: Village, Monster Hunter, and even the re-released The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. On top of that, they ended the presentation in the best way: with a Street Fighter tournament!
Even though I applaud Capcom with their showcase, I would have still wanted to see more games announced. Capcom is our only hope to get a Marvel fighting game, but maybe we’ll be luckier next year.
With the lack of content given, I personally give the presentation a seven out of ten, but let us know down below what you thought of Capcom’s E3 presentation!
