It would not be an SDCC if Capcom was not out there and showing off all of their various wares or hyping up the next big Street Fighter title out there. Sometimes this is hyping up one that is already out there, but in the case of this year, we will be seeing a version of the upcoming title in the mix. Not only seeing it in the form of a developer's panel, but Street Fighter 6 will be playable on the show floor for those lucky enough to be able to attend SDCC next week. It will not be the full title, but a solid demo that will let us all play around with Luke, Jaime, Ryu, and Chun-Li in a fun little environment. Not only that, but it will give the world its first look at the new Real Time Commentator mode and how vicious it could all be once we get the game on our PS5 or PC.
If Street Fighter 6 is not the title you are most looking forward to from the developers here, there will be many other things going on in and around the Capcom booth too. In addition to the demos, there will be a live digital graffiti art show that attendees can watch and snap photos with. There will also be playable versions of Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak and Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium which also launches on July 22nd. Technically that will allow some gamers to enjoy an early version of Street Fighter 6 and Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium before launch. Not a bad deal. It will give us all a bit of break from the floor and insanity of the show too. I know that is always a nice and needed distraction for me out there.
Capcom will be at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 from July 21-24! Play hands-on demos for Street Fighter 6, Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak, and Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium. We’ll also be hosting two panels, one for Street Fighter 6 and our trademark World of Capcom panel.
You bring the shades. We’ll bring the street. Play Street Fighter 6 at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 from July 21-24 or get in the rhythm of our other activities throughout the weekend. Find us at Booth #215! As the first public hands-on demo in North America, you’ll get to play Luke, Jamie, Ryu, and Chun-Li in Versus Mode against the CPU or another player while experiencing the brand new Drive System – all in our Metro City-themed booth! Try out the new Real Time Commentator Feature where Vicious and Aru can be selected to provide commentary for your match.
Stop by our photo op where you can watch the live creation of digital graffiti from show opening until 1 pm PT. Then strike a pose for the camera in front of the newly created graffiti with Street Fighter 6 backdrops until the end of the show. Do a Hadoken towards the camera or your best impression of Chun-Li’s Lightning Legs! Post your photos on social media and make sure to tag us @StreetFighter and use the #StreetFighter6 hashtag.
Since you’ll be stepping into a pocket of Metro City, graffiti artists will be tagging a section of the booth and displaying their work for all to see. There will be a different piece of art created each day of SDCC and the finished pieces will also be posted on our social channels.
Finally, a developer panel will be taking place where members of the development team will be delivering a deep dive into the revealed characters and provide more insight into how Street Fighter 6 is being developed. We’ll also be hosting trivia during this panel where you can win some knockout prizes. Stay tuned for more information on the date and time of this panel.
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
Sunbreak launched on June 30, but if you want to try it out before picking it up, stop by our booth at SDCC. The beginner hunt against a Great Izuchi and the intermediate hunt facing off against a Tetranadon are great entry points to learn (or remember) the basics. There are also a few training quests to get you familiar with the game’s mechanics, including the new Switch Skill Swap. On expert difficulty, you can face Astalos, one of the new monsters in Sunbreak.
Finally, if you’re looking for a big challenge, try battling Sunbreak’s flagship monster Malzeno in a super tough advanced quest! Remember, this hunt is a special challenge tuned just for the demo, and has a shorter time limit than what you might experience in the full game.
Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium
Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium will be available to play in its entirety at SDCC, which means you can enjoy up to 32 titles during your demo time. Some titles you can play are Sonson, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Megaman – The Power Battle, Eco Fighters, and Three Wonders. Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium has a slew of features that will help customize your experience. Use the REWIND button to go back in time to fix a mistake you might have made, save and load mid-game with save slots, adjust the difficulty for most games, and use the optional filters to provide a gaming atmosphere to your liking! Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium launches on July 22 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.
Do you think we might also get another Street Fighter 6 character announcement during the panel out there or will those be saved for later? Do you think Capcom is bringing the correct games for this or did you want to see some of their other IPs make a showing too? How hard do you suspect it will be to get your hands on this sweet demo out at SDCC and will it truly be worth the line to do so? Give us all of that feedback down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all as you so wish. When we have more to share for SDCC or Street Fighter 6 in general, it will certainly be on the site for you. Please keep checking back in for all of that and everything else we have to offer up.
