Capcom Announces 2-Hour Presentation For Tokyo Game Show, Including Resident Evil Village And More

The Tokyo Game Show will feature details about the upcoming Resident Evil: Village title from Capcom and interesting news regarding some of their other titles.

According to Capcom’s own site regarding the event, they’ll be holding a two-hour presentation at the 2020 Tokyo Game Show on September 27th. The first half will have a brief gameplay reveal for Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition. Following that presentation, they’ll dive into a half-hour presentation for Village.

The producers of Village, Peter Fabiano and Tsuyoshi Kanda, will be joined by members of the development team to cover details about the game and behind the scenes stories. In the second half of the presentation Japanese comedian Eiko Kano will join as a guest during an open forum discussion.

It’s also possible that they could even reveal a demo for the title as suggested in a report by The Gamer a few months ago. Considering demos were released for Resident Evil 2: Remake, Resident Evil 3: Remake, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard it’s more than likely one will come out for Village. Of course, the most recent titles had their demos closely tied to release dates so it’s unlikely one will be available for fans any time soon.

The day before on September 26th will be a special presentation of Street Fighter V Champion Edition that will also feature Dan Hibiki’s inclusion in the game. The majority of that event however will feature a Monster Hunter Rise gameplay demonstration.

The other half will have Japanese pop star Maki Goto give a guest appearance to talk about the series in general. It will also have details about Capcom’s other upcoming title in that franchise Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin to be released on the Nintendo Switch.

It’s also important to point out that while the entire event will be in Japanese most of it will also be translated to English for North American audiences during the Live event. A few things like Guest Talks by Eiko Kano and Maki Goto at the time of this article won’t be, but details regarding the upcoming games and gameplay demos will.

For Capcom fans the Tokyo Game Show event is giving a lot of information regarding very popular upcoming titles. Resident Evil is obviously the biggest news, but Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, and Devil May Cry developments are also worth tuning into the event.
