Capcom has finally revealed exactly when it will host its E3 2021 showcase, which previously just had a nebulous window of "June 14th" when the schedule for the event was first announced. According to the announcement, Capcom will share news about The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, Monster Hunter Rise, and Resident Evil Village on June 14th at 5:30PM ET/2:30PM PT. What exactly Capcom might announce during the showcase remains to be seen, but considering that both Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles are set to release in July 2021, it seems fair to assume that there will be plenty about both titles.
It's unclear from the announcement whether Capcom will also include entirely new titles in the showcase, but it wouldn't exactly be shocking either way. While some companies like Square Enix have made it clear that they will be revealing all-new titles during their E3 2021 presentations, others like Xbox and Bethesda have been a bit more cryptic beyond announcing a date and time. Capcom seems to have split the difference here this time around as the inclusion of Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village almost certainly means some sort of as-yet-unannounced downloadable content (DLC) will be revealed.
