Capcom demos will be available at SDCC
Since that initial burst of exciting information, Capcom has been good on its word to “go dark” on its upcoming release Street Fighter 6, much to the dismay of the eager fanbase. Still, for anyone attending San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), good news, as the SF6 demo will be in attendance for your perusal. Fab!
Anyone visiting Capcom’s booth at the insanely crowded show will have the opportunity to check out the same demo played by press at Summer Game Fest last month. Fighting against a pal or the CPU, players can check out World Warriors Ryu, Luke, Chun-Li, and Jamie in a few fast minutes of one-on-one warfare. As the first publicly available demo in North America, it’s sure to be pretty popular, so be sure to get in line early if you wanna hit the streets and other SDCC attendees (Disclaimer: Not in Real Life).
In addition to the demo, Capcom will be showcasing some cool Street Fighter-themed graffiti art, painted live at the booth over the duration of the SDCC weekend. Attendees can then use the completed artworks as backdrops for photo opportunities. Smash that Like button. Or something. Finally, a special Street Fighter 6 panel will be taking questions from attendees about the new game, and offering up prizes in an impromptu trivia tournament. Sounds fun!
Oh, and if Street Fighter isn’t your thing, well, you’ve got some attitude mister, but fortunately, the Capcom booth will also be hosting demo pods for its epic fantasy adventure Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak and the latest of its 4000 retro compilations: Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium. So you can take time out from the crush and the coughing to play a few rounds of Saturday Night Slam Masters.
San Diego Comic-Con 2022 takes place the weekend of July 21-24. Street Fighter 6 will launch on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms in 2023.
