Hot on the heels of showcases hosted by Geoff Keighley, Microsoft, and Ubisoft, Japanese game developer and publisher Capcom held a showcase of its own. This June 2023 Capcom Showcase comes after the successful releases of the Resident Evil 4 remake and Street Fighter 6, and gave Capcom a chance to show us what is has coming next. Titles like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and Exoprimal were shown off, but Capcom also confirmed a couple of new games coming in the future, including Mega Man X DiVE Offline and the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection.
We even got a new look at Pragmata, a game that has been mostly MIA since its 2020 reveal, although our first look at gameplay also came with a delay announcement. To get a full sense of what Capcom revealed at the show, check out this full recap of every announcement made during the June 2023 Capcom Showcase.
Capcom Showcase | 6.12.2023
Mega Man X DiVE Offline was announced
“MEGA MAN X DiVE Offline” Announcement Trailer
A new Mega Man game was announced at the showcase, but it’s probably not what you’d expect. It’s an offline version of Mega Man X Dive, a mobile game where players can collect and play as lots of Mega Man X series characters across 2D action platformer stages. As the title spells out, this game is also now playable offline. Mega Man X DiVE Offline will be released for iOS, Android, and PC later in 2023.
Pragmata isn’t coming out in 2023
PRAGMATA – June 2023 Trailer
Three years after its reveal at the June 2020 PlayStation Showcase, Pragmata reappeared during this Capcom Showcase with a new trailer. It starts with a soldier fighting in a room where a young girl is drawing. It then shows a little bit of gameplay of Pragmata; we see a man in a large spacesuit fight mechs and other robotic enemies before the young girl, who is named Diana, starts to use some technology-based power. Sadly, we also learned that Pragmata will no longer release in 2023, so Capcom can have more time to polish the final product.
Ghost Trick Phantom Detective gets a demo
Ghost Trick – Demo and Demonstration Trailer
Capcom will release its remaster of cult classic Nintendo DS point-and-click adventure game Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective on June 30. Ahead of that launch, this showcase featured a new trailer for the game. Capcom capped things off by releasing a demo for the game across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the same platforms the final version of the game will release on.
A new Ace Attorney collection was revealed
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy – Announcement Trailer
During the Capcom Showcase, we learned that the Ace Attorney series is returning, starting with the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection that brings Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney –: Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice to modern platforms. It will be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in early 2024.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 is four times bigger than its predecessor
After its appearance at the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, Capcom went into more detail about its highly anticipated RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2 today. After replaying that trailer, Capcom confirmed that the Pawn system would be returning and that players can venture and fight with up to 3 AI-controlled Pawns. It then revealed that this sequel’s open world is about four times the size of the original’s. There are also two new major characters: the bow wielder Ulrika and High Priestess Nadinia.
