Capcom confirms Village DLC and celebration of Street Fighter and Mega Man anniversaries
2021 has been a good year for Capcom. The Japanese company has released such notable titles as Resident Evil Village, the latest big game in the legendary horror franchise, and Monster Hunter Rise, whose action RPG is not only available on Nintendo Switch but will also be coming to PC in just a few days.
Given the success of both games, it’s only logical that the company is still looking to add new content to the games. In a post on Famitsu, Capcom welcomed the year 2022 with some insight into its future plans, including Resident Evil and Monster Hunter.
As for the horror series, they’ve let slip that they’ll continue to carry out remakes like the ones we’ve seen in the second and third instalments, so we could expect a future revamp of the fourth relatively soon. However, the highlight is a Village DLC, which has been confirmed to be available in 2022, with no further details offered.
In relation to Monster Hunter, the company is focused on the release of Rise on PC and how Sunbreak, the significant expansion coming this summer to Switch and PC, will work. They have reiterated that we will know the new features it brings next spring, so we will have to wait a few months to know its story and what new monsters we will find in front of us.
In addition to all this, Capcom assured that they will continue working on other franchises, having specifically mentioned the anniversaries of sagas such as Mega Man, the action and platform series with numerous instalments behind it, or Street Fighter, the legendary fighting series that could return next year with a sixth instalment long-awaited by fans of the genre.
