As a game publisher, Capcom continues to be on a roll. It impressed me at Summer Game Fest this year with games like Monster Hunter Wilds and Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, and I’m excited about the recent announcements of Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection: Arcade Classics and Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster. Now, Capcom is holding a dedicated showcase called Capcom Next: Summer 2024 to give a deeper look at three imminent games. If you’d like to tune in, I’ve rounded up all the relevant information about the event so you know where to tune in and how to set your expectations.

When is Capcom Next: Summer 2024?

The Capcom Next: Summer 2024 showcase will broadcast at 3 p.m. PT on July 1. Capcom says the program will last 25 minutes, so set aside a half-hour to check it out sometime if you can’t watch it live.

What to expect from Capcom Next: Summer 2024

Capcom made it quite clear that we should only expect to see three games during this Capcom Next showcase: Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster, and Resident Evil 7 biohazard for Apple devices. Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is a fascinating hybrid of tower defense and action game elements, and we’ll seemingly be getting a thorough deep dive into the game before its July 19 launch.

We’ll receive more details on Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster, which Capcom surprisingly announced on Wednesday and marks the return of a beloved zombie game series. Finally, Capcom will show off the version of Resident Evil 7 that’s being made for iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices with an M1 chip or better in the wake of similar ports for Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 4’s remake. It’s unfortunate that we won’t be learning more about Monster Hunter Wilds or Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection: Arcade Classics during Capcom Next, but at least all three things Capcom is showing off are pretty compelling.

The best Game Boy games of all time

The handheld market wouldn't exist today if it weren't for the Game Boy. This brick of a system may have chewed through your batteries like crazy, but it was worth it to play games on the level of the best NES games anywhere you wanted. Sure, its library lacked color like the best Game Boy Color games, but that didn't stop it from completely dazzling us at the time.

Even all these years since the Game Boy was made obsolete, there are some games that originated on this system that still hold a place as one of the best games of all time. Whether you've got the original hardware to play it on, or are taking a break from the best Switch games and diving into the digital versions on Switch Online, these are the best Game Boy games you should revisit.

Ubisoft is addressing backlash it's received from players about one of Assassin's Creed Shadows' main characters with a lengthy statement concerning how it handles history.

The studio released the statement on X (formerly Twitter) and on its website, saying that it's received criticism from a lot of areas, including Japanese players who leveled accusations at the developer for skewing history with Yasuke, a legendary African samurai who's one of the game's two main playable characters, the other being the Japanese shinobi Naoe. In response, Ubisoft stated that its Assassin's Creed games are primarily historical fiction made with the help of historians, other experts, and in-depth research.
