Capcom E3 2021: Every Announcement From The Event (VIDEO)
Though the proceedings were all digital this year, E3 2021 has unveiled quite many announcements for this latest event, with the likes of Xbox/Bethesda, Ubisoft, and the Summer Game Fest bringing their a-game in terms of reveals. With releases such as Monster Hunter and Resident Evil under its belt, Capcom was sure to also have a number of anticipated announcements in store for fans. Following the conclusion of the publisher’s stream, here’s everything revealed at the big Capcom showcase during E3 2021.
Resident Evil Village / RE:Verse
At the start of the showcase was Resident Evil Village, with series producer Tsuyoshi Kanda commending the fans for making the survival horror entry a success as well as confirming additional DLC is currently on the way for the title. In addition, Kanda was also able to announce a release window for VIllage’s multiplayer component RE:Verse, with the previously delayed mode now coming as a free download to owners in July. Additional information on both reveals was teased for a later date.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
The Capcom showcase also debuted another trailer for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, showcasing another peek at the upcoming story-based adventure for PC and Nintendo Switch. While this hasn’t been our only look at the epic-scale game this E3 season, this new feature revealed that two free title updates are already lined up ahead of the July 9th launch, with the first set to go live on July 15th. In addition, a free trial of Wings of Ruin is also coming out on June 25th and players will be able to carry over their progress should they opt for the full experience.
Monster Hunter Rise
On the subject of Monster Hunter Stories 2, Capcom also detailed the upcoming collaboration coming to Monster Hunter Rise, bringing new Wings of Ruin content to the Nintendo Switch exclusive. Starting June 18th, a nifty Palico armor based on Tsukino awaits those who complete the crossover event, with July 9th unlocking a special “Rider” themed hunter armor set for those with save data for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. On top of that, Update 3.1 will see a bevy of new event quests, cosmetic rewards, and paid DLC introduced on June 24th.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
Though we’ve already been introduced to The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, a new trailer for the upcoming legal prequel was given an additional showcase during the Capcom event. Uniting Ryunosuke Naruhodo, the ancestor of series protagonist Phoenix Wright, and the purposefully misspelled English sleuth Herlock Sholmes, the throwback adventure arrives stateside with a pair of highlighted new features: Dance of Deduction and Summation Examination. A rundown of the two features in action was shown off in the follow-up video below.
The finale of the showcase was dedicated to updates about Capcom esports, which provided a number of new tidbits and changes regarding Capcom Pro Tour 2021. 32 events are set to comprise this year’s worldwide proceedings, alongside a slew of community-based programming such as the Capcom Fighters pre-show No Neutral as well as the competitive brawls of Street Fighter League. In the meantime, Capcom also reminded fans of the Intel World Open, which is currently taking place in Tokyo ahead of the tournament’s finals next month.
