Capcom is set to have a major presence at the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2022, with two showcases set to reveal more about the company’s plans, as well as the future of Street Fighter 6. While TGS is typically a much smaller affair than your E3s and Summer Game Fests, it usually comes with at least a few snappy announcements from some of the best Japanese game developers around.

In 2021, we got fresh looks and release dates for a number of titles, including Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and Final Fantasy Origin – and while 2022 is understandably light on new video game content, TGS 2022 could make the future of gaming much brighter with more announcements, firmer release dates, and other tantalising updates.

So far, we know that Capcom will split its showcase into two segments – the Capcom Online Program, which will reveal ‘all the latest Capcom news’, and the Street Fighter 6 Special Program, which will host fresh news from the highly-anticipated fighting game.

Given Capcom doesn’t have many announced games on the radar for 2023, it could be that we see some real surprises during TGS 2022 – but we’ll just have to tune in to see what the company has planned.
