Capcom has a lot of cool games up its sleeves, but what will we see on the E3 stream?
We’re most of the way through E3 2021, and the show has been mixed, to say the least. After more than a few duds, many of us are hoping for bombshells during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct presentation to spice up this year’s digital expo, now more than ever. That said — and as much as I probably should keep my expectations in check — we’ve still got Capcom’s E3 stream today. It starts at 2:30 p.m. Pacific. I won’t lie: I’m hyped!
About our expectations: Capcom says its E3 showcase will have The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Monster Hunter Stories 2, Monster Hunter Rise, and Resident Evil Village. Those are locked-in, and given that I’m two runs shy of the Village platinum, I am extremely ready for some DLC, or updates, or anything that lets me stay on this thrill ride a little longer.
Of course, with past leaks and rumors about further Resident Evil remakes, the future of Street Fighter, and Dragon’s Dogma 2 still floating around, it’s easy for folks to work themselves up even if today likely isn’t the day. I keep forgetting about Pragmata, too.
With the way this E3 has been going, I’d be satisfied with a surprise or two sprinkled on top of the known quantities. What announcements are you hoping for?
Update: Here’s a quick recap of Capcom’s low-key-as-hell E3 2021 stream:
- Resident Evil Village DLC teased at E3, and the multiplayer RE:Verse mode is out next month
- Monster Hunter Stories 2 is getting a Palamute update on July 15
- Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2 are collaborating to bring you new content
- New The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles overview highlights its investigations and courtroom battles
Yes, that was really it for news.
