This story is part of our Summer Gaming Marathon series.

Hot on the heels of showcases hosted by Geoff Keighley, Microsoft, and Ubisoft, Japanese game developer and publisher Capcom held a showcase of its own. This June 2023 Capcom Showcase comes after the successful releases of the Resident Evil 4 remake and Street Fighter 6, and gave Capcom a chance to show us what is has coming next. Titles like Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective and Exoprimal were shown off, but Capcom also confirmed a couple of new games coming in the future, including Mega Man X DiVE Offline and the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection.

We even got a new look at Pragmata, a game that has been mostly MIA since its 2020 reveal, although our first look at gameplay also came with a delay announcement. To get a full sense of what Capcom revealed at the show, check out this full recap of every announcement made during the June 2023 Capcom Showcase.

Capcom Showcase | 6.12.2023

Mega Man X DiVE Offline was announced

"MEGA MAN X DiVE Offline" Announcement Trailer

A new Mega Man game was announced at the showcase, but it’s probably not what you’d expect. It’s an offline version of Mega Man X Dive, a mobile game where players can collect and play as lots of Mega Man X series characters across 2D action platformer stages. As the title spells out, this game is also now playable offline. Mega Man X DiVE Offline will be released for iOS, Android, and PC later in 2023.

Pragmata isn’t coming out in 2023

PRAGMATA - June 2023 Trailer

Three years after its reveal at the June 2020 PlayStation Showcase, Pragmata reappeared during this Capcom Showcase with a new trailer. It starts with a soldier fighting in a room where a young girl is drawing. It then shows a little bit of gameplay of Pragmata; we see a man in a large spacesuit fight mechs and other robotic enemies before the young girl, who is named Diana, starts to use some technology-based power. Sadly, we also learned that Pragmata will no longer release in 2023, so Capcom can have more time to polish the final product.

Ghost Trick Phantom Detective gets a demo

Ghost Trick - Demo and Demonstration Trailer

Capcom will release its remaster of cult classic Nintendo DS point-and-click adventure game Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective on June 30. Ahead of that launch, this showcase featured a new trailer for the game. Capcom capped things off by releasing a demo for the game across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the same platforms the final version of the game will release on.

A new Ace Attorney collection was revealed

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy - Announcement Trailer

During the Capcom Showcase, we learned that the Ace Attorney series is returning, starting with the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy collection that brings Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney –: Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice to modern platforms. It will be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in early 2024.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is four times bigger than its predecessor

After its appearance at the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, Capcom went into more detail about its highly anticipated RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2 today. After replaying that trailer, Capcom confirmed that the Pawn system would be returning and that players can venture and fight with up to 3 AI-controlled Pawns. It then revealed that this sequel’s open world is about four times the size of the original’s. There are also two new major characters: the bow wielder Ulrika and High Priestess Nadinia. New monsters, including one called Medusa, and new player vocations were also teased. Sadly, we did not get a release date, although Capcom reaffirmed that Dragon’s Dragon 2 will release for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S only.

These are the games we’re still looking forward to in 2024

Going into 2024, I expected a slow year. We were coming off the highs of 2023, and we knew that heavy hitters like Grand Theft Auto 6 were waiting for 2025. I expected a transitional year full of niche hidden gems. Boy was I wrong. This year has nearly matched 2023 already thanks to games like Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, and much more. The wild part? 2024 feels like it hasn't even gotten started yet.

The back half of this year is looking loaded thanks to a dense holiday season. Xbox will get an influx of games, PlayStation will chase the family market once again, and the Nintendo Switch is getting one heck of a final gasp. That's only a small piece of the pie too. Third-parties will deliver anticipated blockbusters like Silent Hill 2's remake and Dragon Age: The Veilguard, while the indie scene is bringing some genre-bending creativity. So what should be on your radar for the rest of 2024? Here's what we're especially looking forward to.

3 multiplayer PS Plus games you should try this weekend (July 12-14)
Promo art for Borderlands 3.

While we love a great single-player game, we're always always down for a great multiplayer experience -- and there's no shortage of ways to get those these days. Many of the most popular multiplayer games are free-to-play, which drastically lowers the barrier of entry for new players. Some are still paid, though, and you might not know whether the monetary investment into a game is worth it in the edge case that your friend group doesn't like it. Thankfully, many of these full-price multiplayer games are available for no additional cost through PlayStation Plus Extra.

Heading into the weekend, I want to highlight three of those games. The first is an intense 5v5 competitive shooter from Ubisoft that emphasizes environmental destruction and tactical play. Next is the most successful asynchronous multiplayer game in the horror genre, where players must avoid a powerful killer as weak survivors. Finally, there's a colorful cooperative shooter available via PS Plus Essential this month that everyone reading this should redeem if they can.

Your favorite video game is retro now

What is a retro game?

Back in the 2000s -- at the height of The Angry Video Game Nerd's popularity and the genesis of throwback games like Cave Story and Mega Man 9 -- that question seemed straightforward. It was a term used to describe games from the Atari 2600 and NES eras. Two decades later, that question is much more challenging to answer. We are as far from the first episode of AVGN as that video was from the launch of the Famicom in Japan. Comedy videos are being made about how old Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is. Xbox is asking players on X (formerly Twitter) if they're nostalgic about game franchises that all started in 2000 or later.
