Following several other developers and publishers, Capcom has now also revealed its lineup of games for the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, which starts in two weeks (thanks to Gematsu for the translation). Capcom isn’t bringing a whole lot of games in general, and only three that are on Nintendo systems – Monster Hunter Stories, to showcase its 1.2 update, and both Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Switch, all of which will be playable on the show floor.

The company intends to publish both games at retail under the name Resident Evil Revelations Collection. The first game will be included on a cartridge, but Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a digital download.

New Easter Egg found in Resident Evil 4 more than a decade later
YouTuber Slippy Slides has stumbled upon an interesting Easter Egg in Resident Evil 4. Some sort of mystery person is hidden away in one of the game’s areas, and he’s pretty tough to see normally.
Slippy Slides messed around with Resident Evil 4 a bit and managed to place the camera in a spot that shows this person in a slightly more clearer light. Yet even after that, the model is rather blurry. After going through the game’s files, Slippy Slides found out that it’s actually a 2D texture. Was it a developer who worked on the project way back in the day? Or something else entirely?

In celebration of Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary, Capcom and iam8bit are teaming up for an “ultra premium throwback relic”. On the way is an entirely new, limited edition reprint of Street Fighter II for the SNES.
Here’s what you can expect from the package:
Featuring one of two colored cartridges, each housing the original game code and fully playable on NTSC consoles – but that’s just the beginning! The “Legacy Cartridge Collection” embodies retro-inspired luxury, amplifying the core SNES box design with a glistening foil sheen, delicately embossed texture, chic spot varnish and an innovative tri-fold cover that opens to reveal bonus vintage art. Inside, we’re keeping it old-school by restoring the contents of the original instruction booklet, complete with a new archival cover print + secret pack-ins (to be revealed when you crack that shrink-wrap seal).
