If E3 Wasn’t Good Enough…


Just popped into my inbox so I thought I would pass it on. Good news for those who are rolling to San Diego in 11 days. Capcom just released what they will have at the San Diego Comic Con. Now I have yet another thing I have to fit a good chuck of time for.

Not going to go into all the things I am thinking after reading this list, but RE5 and RE Degeneration are in there. WOO HOO!

Hi Everyone,

Before the E3 madness begins, here is everything you ever wanted to know about Capcom’s activities at Comic Con this year! The Capcom booth is going to be crawling with crazy activities that you are not going to want to miss! From movie stars and popular comic book artists to awesome panels and HUGE Street Fighter IV tournaments, Capcom has it all this year! See the schedule of events below for all the Capcom Comic Con goodness! Hope to see you all there!

The Capcom PR Team- Kramer, Melody, Tim and Jason


Leading video game publisher, Capcom, proudly presents one of the biggest booths at San Diego Comic Con this year with over 1800 sq. ft. of interactive displays, exclusive merchandise, gaming tournaments, celebrity appearances, and special events that are sure to thrill their diehard fans in the massive Comic Con crowds.

Foremost is the full-size, 20’x20′ boxing ring that holds ten Street Fighter IV arcade units from Japan. Comic con fans will be among the first gamers outside of Japan to play this much anticipated sequel to the best-selling fighting game franchise of all time as it celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
