LET ME IN! LET ME INNN!
Capcom has started to reveal its itinerary for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2022 event, which is scheduled to take place next month at Chiba City’s Makuhari Messe complex. In addition to appearances from Resident Evil Village, Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, and Exoprimal, Capcom will also be bringing a brand new build of its incoming blockbuster, Street Fighter 6.
The new build will differ from that currently being courted at Gamescom, Summer Game Fest, and VS Fighting in that it will feature playable appearances from characters Guile, Juri, and Kimberly, joining the previous demo’s roster of Ryu, Luke, Chun-Li, and Jamie for a flashy roster count of seven World Warriors. This will give TGS attendees a world-first opportunity to check out the three new characters, something which isn’t leaving yer boy seething with envy in any manner whatsoever.
In addition to the new Street Fighter 6 demo, Capcom will also be holding two live streams across the duration of the show. The first is the Tokyo Game Show 2022 Capcom Online Program, which will look at all of Capcom’s other incoming releases, (though the publisher has confirmed Resident Evil 4 will not be in attendance at TGS 2022). The second stream, Tokyo Game Show Street Fighter 6 Special Program, will be focused purely on the new slugger, and is expected to feature at least one new character reveal trailer. Exciting stuff!
Of course, for those not in attendance, LIKE ME, all of the pertinent news for Street Fighter 6 and all other titles being showcased at TGS will be reported right here on Destructoid. While the remainder of 2022 is looking like something of a quiet year for big releases, there’s no denying that 2023 is shaping up pretty nicely, and TGS will only add fuel to that hype fire.
Tokyo Game Show 2022 will take place at Makuhari Messe between September 15-18.
