Capcom Pulling Out All The Stops for Comic Con

Looks like anyone who plans to attend Comic Con July 24-27 this year will be in for a treat other than Dark Horse Comics and Vivendi if Capcom has their way.

“Tournaments! Moviestars! Rockstars of the Art World! Cosplay! Mega Man dancing with Bionic Commando in our boxing ring!”

Great lords of gaming! That sounds like a helluvalot more fun than E3 if you ask me. Anyway, should be present for the festivities, here is what you will get to see – INCLUDING – an exclusive RE5 trailer… lucky gougers. Plus, if you are a fan, Kristen Kreuk will be there as well.

Featuring over 1800 sq. ft. of interactive displays, exclusive merchandise, gaming tournaments, celebrity appearances and special events there will indeed be something from everyone at the Capcom booth. Add to this the full-size, 20′x20′ boxing ring that holds ten Street Fighter IV arcade units, direct from Japan.

  • Bionic Commando
  • Bionic Commando: Rearmed
  • Dark Void
  • MotoGP 08

Exclusive trailers will be shown as well including:

Wow. Sounds like a cosplay/cellar dweller match made in heaven. I am only kidding, so don’t leave any hateful comments. If I were going, I would dress as Ada Wong or Jill Valentine. You think I jest?
