Capcom Could Show Wii U Creations at Tokyo Games Show

Posted by James Newton

Capcom COO cagey

The third party Wii U games video shown at E3 had plenty of talking heads, but not all of them had games to show off. Some big names weren't present at all however, with Capcom a notable absentee from the jollity. That could all change in September though, according to Capcom COO David Reeves.

In a recent interview with MEGamers, Reeves suggests the company may have something to show at Japan's big event in September

Capcom haven’t announced anything officially on Wii U. I think they have done prototypes. There are only so many things you can get ready for E3 [laughs]. But they might show something at the Tokyo Games Show which is where Wii U is more focused on. I haven’t seen anything personally myself but since the companies are quite close, I am sure they must be looking at something.

Let the rampant speculation begin.

Maybe with the success of SSF4 on the 3DS they'll bring either Street Fighter or Marvel vs Capcom to the WiiU. Though I am deep down hoping for Monster Hunter.

lol here comes Super 'Duper' Street Fighter IV and a PS3 Port of the new Americanized Emo Abomination Devil May Cry with a Hud screen on the Wii U's controller screen.lol

Personally I'd love to see a new Power Stone, Zack & Wiki and a new original 3D Classic-like Mega Man title. Imagine playing in a 3D Bubble Man stage. B-)

I wish Capcom would remember the Darkstalkers

They do. SFIV producer Ono wants to make a new game but isn't allowed by his bosses.

I imagine Nintendo at this point is begging Capcom for a Monster Hunter launch game for the Wii U to cement the systems success in Japan.

If anything, they may just hint at some projects that might make their way to WiiU. I highly doubt they would show any actual footage or anything :P

I think they should cancel them before the Tokyo Game Show is even over. Why wait?

No offense, but I think Capcom's already shown that we can't really afford to get our hopes up about anything this early on. :/

Just announce stuff and then cancel it. That's a sure fire way to please your fans ;)

Unless it's Monster Hunters or Darkstalkers, I don't see anything they put on the WiiU to be worth paying attention to.

Not holding my breath for anything spectacular from Capcom, nor my other two favorite third-parties, Square-Enix & Konami. I want to keep what few remaining brain cells I have. ;) NEVER FORGET they've essentially killed Mega Man!

Don't think I'll be able to muster any excitement for anything of yours, Capcom, not even a Mega Man X9.

After what Crapcom just pulled with MML 3 I don't know why anybody would give a damn about them anymore.

No no no.

We have to see Viewtiful Joe 3 and Power Stone 3. You people are always talking about giant ugly monsters with hunters carrying weapons bigger and much more heavier than themselves (are they super human?!)

Power Stone 3 and VJ3 would make my day :)

Capcom could take, & make good on this opportunity to not disappoint. A WiiU exclusive, or 2 might be interesting.
