Capcom Ready To Explode At The San Diego Comic-Con

By on

Yep, E3 is just around the corner and Capcom already has HUGE plans for the Comic-Con. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that their Comic-Con showing will be bigger than their E3 showing. Check out this list of events:

CAPCOM COMIC CON SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

HIGHLIGHTS:

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.
