Summer Gaming Marathon Feature Image
This story is part of our Summer Gaming Marathon series.

Capcom has been on a hot streak this year with the launches of Resident Evil 4‘s remake, Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, and Street Fighter 6. Now, later this month, the storied Japanese game developer and publisher is going to continue celebrating its fortieth anniversary us a look at what’s coming next from them. This will come in the form of a new Capcom Showcase, which the company has typically held around this time each year.

While we don’t really know if this show will contain many exciting new reveals, it’s still probably worth tuning into for Capcom fans. If you’re wondering when and where to stream it, we’ve rounded up all of that information for you as well.

The 2023 Capcom Showcase will begin at 3 p.m. PT today, June 12. According to Capcom, this showcase will only be about 36 minutes long, which should make it a bit shorter than many of the other presentations this month.

The Capcom Showcase will be aired from the company’s official YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Steam, and Twitch pages. We’ll update this article to embed the YouTube livestream once that becomes available.

What to expect from Capcom Showcase 2023

In terms of what will actually be shown at the event, Capcom says it will be “sharing new information about Capcom’s upcoming releases and future titles.” To get more specific, Capcom plans on re-releasing Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and finally launching Exoprimal this summer, so it has been confirmed that both of those titles will show up. Additionally, we’re going to get a deeper look at Dragon’s Dogma II, which appeared last month at the PlayStation Showcase. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see more of Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, which was revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase.

It’d also be a good place to highlight any impending updates for Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter 6, or delve into the latter’s esports scene, going on what previous Capcom Showcases have featured. The big question that looms over this event is whether or not Capcom will reveal anything new here. I guess we’ll all just have to wait, tune in, and see later today.

What to expect from the November 2023 Indie World Showcase
The official announcement tweet and press release for November 2023's Indie World Showcase simply states that it will feature "new announcements and updates on indie games coming to Nintendo Switch." In terms of previously featured Indie World games that still aren't out, titles like Animal Well, Rift of the NecroDancer, and Pepper Grinder come to mind.
There are also plenty of memes on social media about Hollow Knight: Silksong showing up during the event; it's a game people have wanted to see in one of these showcases for years, but it has never shown up. Ultimately, Indie World Showcases are tough to predict because they are typically curated roundups of intriguing indie games that most people don't know about. You'll have a better time watching November 2023's Indie World Showcase if you go in with low expectations and just look forward to seeing some impressive indies you weren't aware of before.

Summer is one of the most exciting times to be a gamer, as it's when most video game developers and publishers tease what's coming next. For years, this was all centered around E3, but since that show went away during the COVID-19 pandemic, publishers have switched things up and held a variety of reveal-focused live-stream events throughout the entire season. This year has been no different, especially with E3 2023 is canceled.

On May 24, Sony kicked things off with a PlayStation Showcase that revealed games like a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake and that Bungie is reviving the Marathon series. In June, though, the number of showcases ramped up. Now, things are winding down with new Tokyo Game Show-related events, as well as a second Nintendo Direct. It can be a lot to keep track of, but we're here to help. This is every important, announcement-filled video game live stream that has taken place throughout summer 2023.
