Monster Hunter Rise
Monster Hunter Rise was heavily featured as well with substantial updates coming in June and July.
This kicked off with the announcement of some collab events with Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, with a June 18 event quest reward for Tsukino and on July 9 you can use save data from Monster Hunter Stories 2 in order to get a "Rider" hunter layered armor set.
Next up was Monster Hunter Rise 3.1 update coming June 24 with new event quests and event quest rewards coming along with paid DLC. Version 3.2 and Version 3.3 were also tipped for end of July and August respectively.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
The game features content that was previously only available in Japan. You are teamed up with the oh so cleverly named, Herlock Sholmes in London in the 19th century.
You will investigate the crime scene, build your case and battle the prosecution in an effort to win the case and ensure that justice is served. The game includes 10 new cases and 8 mini escapes for you to playthrough. It will be available starting July 27 on PS4, Switch and Steam.
Capcom offered a look at some new gameplay features for this release: Dance of Deduction and Summation Examination.
The former has the detective Herlock Sholmes throw out a series of conjectures and then you will discuss the flaws in these discussions with your associate and search for clues to identify these errors and reveal the truth. Herlock will respond to these revelations with new deductions and helps them come to the proper conclusion together.
The Summation Examination takes place in the courtroom and has you essentially facing off against the jury with each of the six members of the jury explaining why they came to their verdict. You need to identify any conflicting statements among the jurors and call them out with evidence to back it up. If you are successful you can change their minds and tip the scales in your favor.
The Capcom pre-show is finally kicking off with some Monster Hunter talk ahead of the full showcase starting at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time.
Not surprisingly as we await the event actually getting underway, Lady Dimitrescu is top of mind for some Capcom fans.
