Capcom announces major plans for Tokyo Game Show 2022

Capcom will have a major presence at Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2022, with two showcases set to reveal more about the company’s plans, as well as the future of Street Fighter 6. While TGS is usually a much smaller affair than your E3 and Summer Game Fests, it usually features at least a few quick announcements from some of the best Japanese game developers around.

In 2021, we had new skins and release dates for several titles, including Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, i Final Fantasy Origin – and while 2022 is understandably light on new video game content, TGS 2022 could make the future of gaming much brighter with more announcements, firmer release dates and other tantalizing updates.

So far, we know that Capcom will split its showcase into two segments: the Capcom Online Show, which will reveal “all the latest Capcom news,” and the Street Fighter 6 Special program, which will host new news of the long-awaited fighting game.

Since Capcom doesn’t have many announced games on the radar for 2023, we might see some real surprises during TGS 2022, but we’ll just have to tune in to see what the company has planned.

The first program, the Capcom’s online program will be issued September 15-16, 2022 at the following times around the world:

  • Japan – 11:00 pm JST (September 15)
  • United States – 10:00 am ET | 7:00 am PT (September 15)
  • United Kingdom – 16:00 CET | 15:00 BST (September 15)
  • Australia – 12:00pm AEST (16 September) | 11.30pm ACST (September 15) | 10:00am AWST (September 15)

The second program, the Street Fighter 6 Special program will follow directly, at the moment:

  • Japan – 12:00am JST (September 16)
  • United States – 11:00 am ET | 8:00 am (September 15)
  • United Kingdom – 17:00 CET | 16:00 (September 15)
  • Australia – 1:00am AEST (September 16) | 12:30pm ACST (September 16) | 23:00 AWST (September 15)

The presentations will be streamed live, but stay tuned to see where they end up.

Those able to attend the event will be able to play through Capcom’s games at the show, including Exoprimal, Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak i Street Fighter 6. The show runs from September 15-18, 2022 in Japan and online.
