Capcom’s celebration of 25 years of Street Fighter along with demos of their upcoming releases will highlight their presence at this week’s convention.
Besides coming loaded for bear with a bunch of things to sell you this week (expensive, sometimes exclusive things), Capcom will also be talking about some of their games. Most notably, you fight fans out there better hit the Thursday Street Fighter 25th Anniversary panel. This one is in room 6BCF, and if my sleep-deprived memory serves, while it has a decent amount of space, expect it to get packed pretty quickly nonetheless.
Beyond the Street Fighter love, Lost Planet 3, DmC, and Resident Evil 6 will get shown off if you haven’t had a chance to see them in action in person. Now’s your chance to ask the devs whatever questions you might have about each release (personally, I’m going to go off-topic and demand that we see an all-Wesker game by 2015).
You can check out the full lineup of panels below:
