A rumor suggests that Capcom, the renowned video game developer and publisher, may have two unreleased games in store and plans to unveil them during the anime event Jump Festa 2020. As the company behind some of the most successful video game franchises of all times, including Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter and Monster Hunter World, Capcom has been a household name for decades. Some of its most popular movies have even been turned into movies, keeping thousands of players glued to the screen.
However, Capcom experienced some ups and downs during the last few years. In 2018, the company was been in players’ crosshairs because of some issues related to Street Fighter V, including the introduction of in-game advertising options. Nevertheless, Capcom did much better in 2019, releasing two must-play games: Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. It is therefore believable that the video game developer wants to keep blowing its fans away with the release of two new titles.
As Gematsu reports, the rumor started from the Japanese website ryokutya2089, which spread the news that Capcom was going to show four games at Jump Festa 2020. Yet, the official sources say that the company will only exhibit two games at the popular anime and manga event, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Mega Man Zero/ZX. For this reason, the fans started to immediately speculate about whether or not Capcom planning to show two unreleased games at the event. It is not known which games the developer could have in store yet, but rumors suggest that a remake of Resident Evil 3 could be involved.
Additionally, Capcom recently stated that it was interested in revamping some of its older IPs that haven’t had new releases in years. However, it is not sure yet if the company truly chose Jump Festa 2020 to announce its new projects. Instead, it’s possible that the company will decide to unveil them during two more high-profile events that will take place in the next few weeks: The Game Awards 2019 and Capcom Cup 2019.
While Jump Festa 2020 is going to have prestigious attendees in the gaming industry (including Bandai Namco, Nintendo, and Level-5), Capcom has definitely managed to steal the limelight thanks to this new mystery regarding its potential upcoming releases. The curiosity of the fans about Capcom-related rumors confirms that Resident Evil‘s developer, despite the struggles experienced during the past few years, is still in the hearts of thousands of players.
