With Tokyo Game Show bringing much-needed hype from around the world, Capcom came out swinging with their hottest titles and DLC this year. Having time to go through the glorious Capcom booth in its entirety gave us a chance to see just what they have in store for their loyal fans. From completely new titles to much welcome updates, they truly delivered. So in case you aren’t able to check them out yourself, here’s a quick look at all the Tokyo Game Show 2023 Capcom games we played.
Dragon’s Dogma 2
While we only got roughly 15 minutes of Dragon’s Dogma 2, we were able to conclude that it’s a solid title to look out for. It retains the heavy-hitting, fast-paced nature of the first installment while sporting a new coat of paint. If ever Dante from DMC and Monster Hunter’s Rathalos decided to have an unholy lovechild, this would definitely be it.
If you enjoyed the team-based dino-extermination that Exoprimal brought earlier this year, you’ll be psyched to know that Capcom is bringing in a new map, new rigs, a Halloween campaign, and a few mecha versions of Street Fighter fan favorites. You can play as Ryu (Deadeye), Guile (Zephyr), and Chun-li (Vigilant) as skins or your Exofighter. Just choose a certain class, pick a loadout, and hadouken your way to victory.
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy
The Gyakuten Saiban franchise brings its law-practicing gameplay to the Nintendo Switch with the Ace Attorney Trilogy featuring the super rookie attorney, Apollo Justice. The trilogy features the titular game starting Apollo Justice, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. If you’ve been a longtime fan of courtroom clashes, defending the innocent, and winning cases–on the go, then this brand new trilogy will be right up your alley.
Resident Evil fans are eating good this year thanks to Capcom’s TGS 2023 showcase. Resident Evil Village gets an iPad port that gives you the full experience, albeit to a less grandiose extent. At 30fps and low to medium settings, it’s far from the original release. Still, being able to play it on some sweet new Apple hardware can put your mind at ease.
As or the Resident Evil 4 Remake, we get the Separate Ways DLC and an update to The Mercenaries minigame. Separate Ways puts us in the boots of our favorite femme fatale anti-hero Ada Wong as she works behind the scenes, helping our hardcore himbo, Leon S. Kennedy. The Mercenaries now features both Ada Wong and the superhuman supervillain, Albert Wesker. If you were a fan of the 2004 Mercenaries mini-game, you’ll get a kick out of this.
Celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2024, Monster Hunter is treating its fans to a few special treats leading up to the big day. Players can look forward to a special collaboration with MSI, a limited edition for the game, and perhaps even more. Monster Hunter Now also made an appearance. Aside from a set of mobile phones to try out the game, there were also a few more interesting sights to check out. Monster Hunter’s 20th anniversary celebration is definitely a highlight when it comes to Tokyo Gameshow 2023 Capcom titles.
Street Fighter 6
While we didn’t get anything brand new for Street Fighter 6, Capcom did pull out all the stops in bringing the utmost FGC fanfare this side of TGS. Whether you’re a fight stick man or controller purist, you’re guaranteed to have fun with a buddy you came along with, or a new friend on the floor.
Capcom’s been a mainstay not only at every major gaming event, but also within every gamer’s life. They’ve continued to crank out fun games through the years, and 2023 is no exception. As far as Tokyo Game Show goes, we can’t wait to see what they’re cooking for 2024.
