Capcom To Make "New Product Announcements" At PAX East

Posted by Andy Green

Says there may be "a surprise or two" in store

PAX East is set to kick off in Boston this weekend and it's sure to generate a heck of a lot of buzz, what with the amount of video game companies that will be in attendance.

One of those companies will be Capcom, which will be showcasing games such as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Resident Evil Revelations and Capcom Arcade Cabinet.

On Friday there will be a 'World of Capcom' panel held at the Phoenix Theater. It'll go on for an hour, during which a group of Capcom producers and project managers will talk about a few of the company's upcoming titles as well as "some new product announcements".

The company also said there may be "an additional surprise or two", which is very intriguing indeed. It looks like Capcom may well be hinting at a couple of new games — one of which could be a new Strider — we'll just have to wait and see.

What would you like to see announced? Let us know in the comments section below.

Really you guys want a new Monster Hunter instead of a new Mega Man which we haven't had for a while? Seriously? Even after we just got Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate? Really?

Anything "Strider" related would be nice. BTW, I would not mind having "Dead Rising" on the Wii U at all...

We just got MH3U so its way too early to want a new Monster Hunter, but it would be nice to be told if we can expect MH4 to be localized or not.

@rlopez1996 Be prepared for disappointment. I will poopiedoodledingdong my pants if I see any new Megaman games come out within the next few years. They seem hard at work at cancelling every single new Megaman game, and only re-releasing classics that have already been re-released over and over and over and over again.

Street fighter X Megamen on the wii u eshop. Most likely won't happen though. A wii u megamen would be nice to though. Anyone know if nintendo will be there?

@Razalom Stole the words right out of my mouth.

If they decide to bring back MegaMan.....that would be the megaton to end all megatons for Capcom. Nothing after that announcement would register due to the sheer awesomeness of MegaMan making a comeback

SNES Mega Man X9 (Not gonna happen)

I'm gonna go with a Phoenix Wright announcement of some kind and a digital 2D Strider game for every system.

Ace Attourney 5 and Investigations 2 would be nice. But how do we know there are going to be Nintendo related announcements from Capcom?

Dream game: Okami 3 out sourced to Platinum games. Considoring that Platinum still has te key developers of the original Okami, I reelly hope this happens. I doubt it after the poor sales of both of the first two titles.

People asking for a new Okami, count me in. Although I see this is not what Capcom may thinking about right now. But rumors of a Tequila Works' Ghouls and Ghosts points to a new game and this might show up at PAX. But would be happy with some remakes though, like Viewtiful Joe, Power Stone Collection, Giga Wing and Mars Matrix, SNK Vs. Capcom and maybe, if only we are that lucky, a RE2 HD remake. One can dream, can't he? And since I'm dreaming, I now live in a world where we have a Aliens Vs. Predator HD for Wii U/Xbox 360/PS3.

I'd like Resident Evil 6 on Wii U. I'm betting every other guess in the comments is more likely, though.

A new Darkstalkers game or releasing Miles Edgeworth 2 outside of Japan? I could go for both, I kinda doubt they will release Edgeworth though. Guess we will wait and see what happens.

it wont be MH4. No chance theyd announce a localization so soon after the release of MH3U...

@MrWalkieTalkie
Was racking my brains to think what Capcom game it was I was desperately hoping for.... Okami 2/3 is definately the game I'm hoping for <3
Oh yeah Phoenix Wright localisations definately up there as well :)

Been a while since they've churned Street Fighter 4- Street Fighter: Rehash 4U including Ryu in a Green Bandana.

MH4 is not going to happen, it'd be suicide for MH3U's sales to announce it so soon. I wouldn't say no to a new Dead Rising though,.

A wii u game that isnt a port of a 3ds game would be nice.
Im gonna do something different.to everyone else here and hope for something that isnt a sequel.
Remember Me i could see coming to the U.

I'd definitely settle for Monster Hunter 4 localization info (for Europe too pls) and Okami HD for the Wii U (a sequel would be awesome, but that's stretching it a bit)

....and Capcom announcing that they've listened to the fans and restarted development on Mega Man Legends 3. Ok now I'm in dreamland....
