There’s only one month to go until the Tokyo Game Show, which starts on September 15th, and Capcom has today started to reveal what we can expect them to show off this year. For Nintendo fans, the answer is not much, but there are a few things to be excited about.
Four games will be available in playable demos at the Capcom show booth on both September 17th and 18th, with Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection topping the ranking for Switch-bound titles. The company has also announced that Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be at its booth as well.
The Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection was first announced just two months ago, and is due out sometime next year, so its appearance at TGS is most welcome. The game will collect all ten titles from the original GBA franchise, adding a gallery and music mode, which promises to collect over 150 songs from across the series.
Capcom will have two #TGS2022 livestreams

In terms of live events, Capcom will be running two livestreams during TGS: the Capcom Online Programme and the Street Fighter 6 Special Programme. Although neither of these will be taking place in person, it is the former that we want to emphasise to Nintendo fans.
The Online Programme, which will be airing at 3pm BST on September 15th, promises the chance to hear about a variety of upcoming projects from the company in the form of a pre-recorded stream. There has been no official announcement about what we are likely to see in this stream yet — though it stands a higher chance of appealing to our Nintendo passions.
Given that some of the company’s upcoming titles are games such as Exoprimal and Resident Evil 4 Remake (alongside Street Fighter 6), we wouldn’t get our hopes up too high for any major Nintendo announcements, but hey, we can dream. In the absence of E3 or a major Nintendo Direct, who knows? Maybe we’ll hear about that Ace Attorney reboot that we have long dreamed of (we doubt it).
You can check out all of the details for Capcom’s TGS schedule so far over on its official website.
The Tokyo Game Show will run from September 15th to 18th, so we expect more companies will start to reveal their programmes in the next few weeks.
