Countdown timers are sadly part of the whole internet hype machine these days, and Capcom has just kicked off one of its own this week.
If you visit this link, you'll be welcomed by a countdown that currently reads 6 days, 19 hours. That means whatever this countdown is leading to will be revealed to the world on Monday, February 21st at 22:00 PT / 06:00 GMT / 01:00 ET / 15:00 JST.
What could it be? A new Street Fighter game? Perhaps the rumoured Resident Evil 4 remake? A new entry in the Monster Hunter series? A gritty Mega Man reboot? Place your bets now!
I swear to God Capcom if you set up a week long hype counter for an NFT announcement........
Street Fighter NFTs, you can be scammed by buying Blanka, who is made of electricity therefore does nothing and will be sold on again in a months time.
They couldn't of done minutes and seconds too? It just saying down to hours, sorry but that is not exciting.
The timer is literally set for the time the Capcom Cup ends, which implies it's something they're announcing at the end of the Capcom Cup. So my guess Street Fighter 6. Also there's something going on tomorrow at 4PM(JST) about Resident Evil.
UN Squadron and Black Tiger for Arcade Stadium!
The rumored Switch-exclusive Resident Evil game!!
@chipia nope Resident Evil announcement tommorow and its gonna be Resident Evil 4 Remake or Village DLC.
I want Resident Evil!!!
Nintendo is buying Capcom reveal
/s (...or is it? 🤔)
Asura's Wrath sequel?!
Nah, probably NFTs.
NFT sale for sure.
@ShadowofTwilight22 You think they're going to launch a countdown site to announce such a purchase? Also Sony? Don't make me laugh. Capcom doesn't get involved with anyone. But if anyone is going to get them, it will be Microsoft.
Alien Vs Predator HD remastered on Switch!
A new Ace Attorney please.
Either NFTs or street fighter II for the millionth time probably
Countdown to a Twitter announcement which will be a countdown to a teaser trailer which will have another countdown for the full trailer
I was thinking Cross X Beats.
Rhythm game from Capcom, made by former BEMANI artist Naoki Maeda.
I know it will be 0% chance for Cross X Beats available for modern consoles since Naoki Maeda already left from Capcom several years ago. At least, I participated in guessing.
@Rambler I love UN Squadron - I’m up for that.
I’m going for… Dragon’s Dogma 2. Because, why not?
Or, let’s go crazy, a new Breath of Fire that isn’t a mobile FTP nonsense!
remove the cou and the down
add an f in the middle of n and t
it makes sense
Either Ninty buying Capcom or Capcom releasing SF IV or V on Switch... pleeease.
They're counting down to Russia further invading the Ukraine.
@ShadowofTwilight22 the rules making it more difficult for Japanese companies to be acquired by overseas interests are in the process of being relaxed. Also, the rules aren't there to prevent a company from willingly being acquired. If Capcom wants to be acquired and Microsoft want it to happen, it will happen. Furthermore, any acquisition that Microsoft makes overseas wouldn't fall under the jurisdiction of U.S regulation and wouldn't be eligible for consideration regarding Activision Blizzard, just as Japanese regulators aren't involved in regulating the A.B takeover.
I am with you, probably, NFT, which everybody is complaining about. But many will still consume it.
Micro transactions 2.0
They are getting bought by tencent!!!
I'm thinking this is the Resident Evil 4 Remake that Capcom's done a horrible job of keeping secret. The style of it fits really well with the RE series, and what else would warrant a week-long countdown from the series?
I'm hope that Capcom Arcade Stadium will get "DLC" pack(s) with other arcade games. Especially fighting games. Vampire, Vampire Savior, JoJo, War-Zard, Pocket Fighter, Star Gladiator... Or they will announce return of the Marvel vs. Capcom 2(in HD!) and JoJo's Heritage for The Future HD!
Resident Evil or Ace Attorney news please.
Megaman ZX3 and Legends 3!
Street Fighter II: The Super-Ultra-Ultimate-Final, We Really Mean It This Time, Turbo Edition.
My money’s on Street Fighter VI
@ShadowofTwilight22 Around 70% of Call of Duty sales have historically been on PlayStation. Where any companies products are selling isn't really a consideration, clearly.
more stadium arcade games. PLEASSEeeeeeee
Hopefully X-men/marvel Vs Streetfighter and Dark Stalkers
I imagine they won’t show any MHW2 until sunbreak launches.
B-RE-ath of Fire obviously, a remake of the original Breath of Fire, but stylised in an extremely silly manner because reasons.
two words; Power Stone
Maybe some kind of fighter with all the characters in the picture...!
Let it be streetfighter 6!
Man Streetfighter V Champion edition, my all time favorite.
Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers 3… it’s probably Street Fighter 6.
Who knows. All I want is some more games for Arcade Stadium, but I doubt they'd have this kind of build up for that announcement.
Street Fighter VI or a new Mega Man game, I'm calling it. since KoF is releasing soon, Capcom will need new games to ward of competition. if we're lucky maybe a new Darkstalkers or obscure game remake/remaster
ooh! or maybe a VS series legacy collection of sorts!
whatever it is, the Switch isn't gonna get it
I heard like 3 weeks ago that there will be an event by Capcom with content creators. Did I just missed it or it's for next Monday? If not, it could be the new Ace Attorney title, it was supposed to lauch in the end of 2021.
Gimme my damn megaman battle network. Literally, just make some pretty interface for an emulator and that's all you have to do capcom.
Before an RE4 remake I would love an original, 0, or Code Veronica remake. Don't get me wrong RE HD is great and I love playing that tank control style (really hightens the fear factor), but I would also love a chance to explore the mansion built from scratch in the RE Engine.
Ooh my bets? Umm hmm. Probably some dlc or something realistically.
@patbacknitro18 Nooo! That would be awful.
SF V or Resident Evil Revelations 3 for Switch would be sweet. But most likely RE4 remake for everyone except Switch owners. Yay.
Give us Phoenix Wright please
Oh no. OH NO. OOOOOOH NOOOOOO
Don't you do it. Don't you DARE give me hope.
Hopefully Megaman related - wishful Legend 3 or ZX 3 but I guess a Battle Network Collection which would also be totally fine
A Versus game, maybe Marvel vs Capcom 4. SNK vs. Capcom 3?
It's gonna be a mobile game, I had seen these kind of tease before. Don't be fooled.
Part of me hopes for an end to the Street Fighter V era but if it isn't cross play on every major platform it will hardly be worth it.
MegaMan X9 or Legends 3 revival
I anticipate something that sounds amazing until we find out it's for mobile.
But will it feature Dante from the Devil May Cry series?
In all seriousness, what's stopping Capcom from negotiating a Capcom vs. SNK 3? I know there's SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos, though.
On a somewhat related note, whatever happened to Tekken X Street Fighter? I know that's Bandai Namco's thing, but surely Capcom may have something to say about that.
We'll finally get Disney Afternoon Collection on Switch.
Or Bionic Commando, Little Nemo: The Dream Master, Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darkness, Legendary Wings, Section Z and 1943: The Battle of Midway will join the NSO NES lineup.
It would be awesome for a remake of Mega Man games (or new). Especially if you can play as other characters that different abilities (like Zero & Axel in Mega Man X series). I love playing Vile in Mega Man X Maverick Hunter! Can you imagine playing as a robot master with similar size as Mega Man and getting new twists to their powers!?! 😲
Wishful thinking, I know. 🥲
Based on the style is either a resident evil game or new horror ip. As much as I’d love to see a Megaman Legends Remake/remaster.
all I want right now is that Village DLC, would also be really happy with a RE classics collection 1, 2, 3 and Code Veronica on the Switch MMMM GIMMEH! or a Resident Evil Revelations 3 would also be pretty awesome
Viewtiful Joe 3?
Mega Man Legends 3?
Mega Man ZX 3?
Capcom vs SNK 3?
Another Capcom game that needs a number 3?
@ShadowofTwilight22 Sony will never buy out capcom. That’s like microsoft trying to buy Nintendo.
Hoping SF VI and that it’s multiplat. I barely play V because I don’t spin up my ps4 much.
Resident Evil 4 HD Remake.
Funny thing is that the free unofficial HD Remake released only 1 week ago. 1:1 unlike Capcom version which changes gameplay.
Another one that’s not Nintendo related, I’ll bet.
@JokerCK no DLC for VIII, in capcoms last direct, they mentioned exclusive game for Switch, and they vaguely said we can look forward to such news-this is long overdue since capcom had their direct about re8 ages ago. This must be either RE2/3 remake for Switch or Revelations 3
@Ryu_Niiyama that’s possible, but Capcom is long overdue with their exclusive RE game for Switch! So I think it will be Revelations 3
When I saw Ryu + Chun-Li + Mega Man + Roll I immediately thought of Tatsunoko vs. Capcom where they all appeared, so my thoughts go to some kind of new game in the Capcom Versus Series.
@BigBluePanda I have no OBJECTION! To that!
Zelda Oracle of … remake 🥳
Capcom needs to revive some of their other more neglected IP's on Switch like a new:
... Wun can only hope.
Takeover by Tencent? Nft heaven? Both?
PLEASE BE MEGAMAN BATTLE NETWORK REBOOT!!
MEGAMAN BATTLE NETWORK PLEASE!!! LET’s GO!!!
Why are countdown timer's sad?
