Capcom is coming to New York Comic-Con this week. They have four panels, a bunch of games, and a strange event that features producers Yoshinori Ono (Street Fighter) and Katzuhiro Harada (Tekken) in football garb. What?
SFXT BOWL MMXI! Street Fighter X Tekken fans will get to cheer on Yoshinori Ono and Katzuhiro Harada as they don full football gear, and draft fans from the crowd to join them in a series of football challenges on a custom indoor SFXT football field. Cheerleaders will lead the crowds, says Capcom. This strange event goes down on Saturday, October 15, level 1- Exhibit Hall 1B, Noon - 1pm. I'll definitely be there.
Capcom will also have most of their 2011/2012 game line-up at their booth, so expect to see Dragon’s Dogma, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Resident Evil Revelations, Street Fighter X Tekken, Asura’s Wrath, Dead Rising 2 Off The Record, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Street Fighter IV: Volt. At that same booth you'll also find tournaments, giveaways, producer visits and the Capcom store.
