Capcom Highlights Are Coming Next Week
Will show off the mysterious Kunitsu-Gami, Street Fighter 6, and their other titles.

Good communication is key for keeping people invested in your video games, and Capcom seems to acutely understand that, with their regular series of Highlights that take just enough time to tell us about their upcoming projects and updates to existing ones.

Next week we'll have two separate streams announcement streams, the timings for them are:

  • Thursday - March 7, 2024 - 3:00 PM PST
  • Monday - March 11, 2024 - 3:00 PM PDT

Day one will feature two distinctly different fantasy titles, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess and Dragon's Dogma II. The former is supposed to uphold Capcom's legacy of innovation, and supposedly mixes influences from Okami and Shinsekai, Capcom's underwater action-adventure game. Nothing is known about gameplay yet, but it promises to provide a blend of strategy and action. Dragon's Dogma, meanwhile, speaks for itself. It's a fairly complex fantasy action RPG with a unique Pawn party system, and action elements that go from clobbering groups of monsters to climbing on top of greater beasts.

Day two promises to be a bit more low-key. It will be divided between four titles: Monster Hunter Now, Monster Hunter Stories, Exoprimal, and Street Fighter 6. We're obviously looking forward to some SF6 updates, first and foremost. With Ed out, Capcom is yet to even tease Akuma, and we're all expecting to hear more news about the upcoming balance patch that will likely bring some sweeping changes and address the entire cast.

Besides that, it will likely feature updates and future plans for other titles in the line-up. Monster Hunter Now is Capcom's relatively recent mobile MH game that they've been actively promoting at prior events, and it seems like they have no plans of slowing down. Monster Hunter Stories is another spin-off from the franchise with a cutesy aesthetic, Pokemon style battles, and a bigger focus on narrative, in a series that is otherwise known for bare bones to non-existent storytelling.

And then there's Exoprimal, a live service PvEvP hero shooter where you mow down hordes of digital dinosaurs and fellow players (if the game mode calls for it). The game launched with a fairly mixed reception, but has been on an upwards trend as people who are into this concept have warmed up to it. At the time of writing, there are 32 people banding together to fight off the dinosaurs on Steam, but the game supposedly gathered a much healthier playerbase on GamePass and consoles. Perhaps whatever Capcom has in store will further help this game find its footing.

To be your host, Capcom invited FightingCowboy, a variety streamer with a fairly large following.
