Capcom to Announce Two New Games at Jump Festa 2020

Capcom will reportedly reveal two brand-new games at annual anime event Jump Festa 2020 in December.

Year 2019 has been exceptionally well for renowned video game developer/publisher Capcom, launching some of their most successful titles like Devil May Cry 5, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion and Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Of course, they would like to keep that flow going and release more games to keep players engaged. To that, a recent rumor is suggesting that Capcom is planning to reveal two upcoming games at Jump Festa 2020 anime event.

A report on Gematsu quotes Japanese website Ryokutya2089, which claimed that Capcom plans to show four titles at annual Jump Festa 2020 event next month including MHW: Iceborne, Mega Man Zero/ZX and two unreleased games.

However, official source says that they are only going to demonstrate two of above-mentioned games. One of those reveal could very much be Resident Evil 3 Remake that YouTube channel Spawn Wave speculated to drop at The Game Awards 2019.

Both Iceborne expansion and Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection are coming out next year in January. So it really makes sense for Capcom to let players take an early preview at those games and build some hype in advance.

Jump Festa is taking place in a few weeks next month, same as The Game Awards and theory for a reveal of RE3 Remake at the latter only seems reasonable as it is one of the biggest stages for companies to announce their latest AAA-games.

Also, RE2 Remake has been shortlisted for "Game of the Year" nomination for this year at TGA. It would be an epic moment for all fans to see their favorite classic survivor horror title winning and its sequel getting announced.

Since there is no official confirmation for this rumor, they might stick to regular plan for Jump Festa and prepare for a showcase at The Game Awards 2019, or take stage at their high-profile Capcom Cup 2019 event at the same time.
