Tokyo Game Show 2022 Capcom showcase: how to watch and what to expect

Tokyo Game Show returns this year with a Japanese-developer-filled showcase. One of the guests of honor is Capcom, the publisher of popular series like Street Fighter and Resident Evil. Some fans are eager to find out more about their favorite franchises, but those in the West might worry they won’t be able to watch the publisher’s showcase because of the time difference between the U.S. and Japan. Thankfully, the TGS schedule aligns just enough for those with room in their morning schedules, depending on what coast you’re on. Here’s how to watch the Tokyo Game Show 2022 Capcom Online Program and what games will be present.

When is the TGS 2022 Capcom Online Program?

TGS2022 Capcom Online Program will be on September 15 at 7AM PT and will bring you news on Capcom's latest titles.

The Capcom Tokyo Game Show Showcase airs at 10 a.m. ET September 15. It streams live from the Capcom USA YouTube channel and from each of the featured games’ dedicated Twitch channels. The whole Tokyo Game Show itself starts much earlier because of the time zone difference, but westerners should still be able to catch the showcase at this mid-morning time.

What to expect from the TGS 2022 Capcom Online Program

The Capcom Tokyo Game Show Showcase features deep dives into these upcoming titles:

  • Street Fighter 6
  • Exoprimal
  • Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection

The Capcom program should last about 50 minutes, leaving 10 minutes for each title. Capcom devs will be present to provide in-depth information on their respective titles, more than viewers have been able to glean from trailers so far. These five games were the only ones mentioned ahead of time, but the wording in promotional materials implies that there may be more.

What not to expect from the TGS 2022 Capcom Online Program

Do not expect to hear about games besides those mentioned in Capcom’s TGS-related promotional materials. If the social media page for the game in question includes an announcement for TGS, it’s a safe bet that it will be there. If not, then don’t expect any surprises. There could be more games, considering how often the games industry pulls the “and one more thing” gimmick, but it’s not guaranteed. Capcom was similarly upfront about its itinerary during its 2021 E3 stream, which didn’t include any unexpected announcements.

Epic Games just teased a Fallout and Fortnite crossover

With Fallout being everywhere right now, it's only fair that it joins Fortnite, too. Epic Games teased on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday that the iconic open-world RPG series will be coming to Fortnite.

While there aren't any public details yet on what will be offered during this collaboration, we can expect some Fallout-themed weapons and some skins. Maybe a vault dweller suit or some power armor? Since Epic put a thumbs-up emoji in the caption, it's safe to assume that Vault Boy will be involved.

Deadlock is a new hero shooter developed by Valve, according to leaks
Three heroes lined up in green, red, and blue shades.

Valve might be more known for its Steam Deck handheld and its video game retail platform Steam these days, but according to leaks, the company is working on its next game —  a third-person, hero-based shooter known as Deadlock.

Screenshots of the game and basic details were posted on X (formerly Twitter) by noted Valve game data miner Gabe Follower and on YouTube by Tyler McVicker, who also has a proven track record of leaking Valve info. Both posted about Deadlock first on Thursday, saying it would feature teams of six battling each other on a map with four lanes. It would also feature art that looks inspired by DOTA, the company's multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) series, with steampunk mixed in for good measure.

The best games you can beat in a day

Games have steadily become larger and larger as the generations go on. Thanks to the most advanced console and PC technology, developers are able to craft massive worlds and stories that would have been impossible in the past. While many of us enjoy sinking our teeth into a meaty 100-hour-long game from time to time, eventually fatigue will set in. That's where games on the other end of the spectrum come in. These games aren't afraid to tell a tight, compact story, or to explore a single gameplay concept, and then call it a day without stretching things out. They are no less impactful or memorable than their massive counterparts, and may even be superior in some player's eyes. Here are a few of the best games you can beat in a single day to cleanse your palate with some more experimental titles.
