Xbox Presentation- Trailers
In addition to these Gamepass announcements, Xbox’s Tokyo Games Show presentation went over a few different titles. For fighting game fans, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle Special Edition and Guilty Gear Strive are coming to Xbox consoles in Spring 2023.
Naraka Bladepoint is getting a new content update, which includes a new campaign chapter, a new map, and a new hero.
Forza Horizon is having a 10-year anniversary celebration in an upcoming update to Forza Horizon 5. We also got an announcement regarding Overwatch 2, which is getting a new hero in Kiriko, a Japanese ninja support with a spirit fox.
Pal World and Capcom’s Exoprimal got new TGS trailers. We’ll go over Capcom’s new title in the second half of the article, but we’ll go over the first one now.
Pal World looks interesting, to say the least. It essentially looks like the craziest mish-mash of game genres with a Fornite aesthetic.
You have Pokémon, but also guns that you and them can shoot and Poke ball throwing mini-games? Just take your own conclusions:
Finally, to conclude our Xbox TGS recap, the most exciting game shown: Team Ninja’s Wo Long Fallen Dynasty.
The newest game from the creators of Nioh got a new trailer with an interview with the game’s producer, Fumihiko Yasuda.
The Nioh feel is still there, but the Chinese aesthetic is a refreshing sight to behold. Fumihiko Yasuda goes over the game’s setting, the reason why it’s chosen, and how that changed the game.
There were also mentions of a “Morale System” on the battlefields, but that was not explained. We’ll likely get more info during Koei Tecmo’s own presentation tomorrow. Follow our coverage here at Jaxon to stay up to date!
Capcom Online Program Livestream TGS
Capcom kicked off their Tokyo Games show presentation with a new Free Title update for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. The update brings new layered weapons, weekly events akin to Monster Hunter: World, and three new subspecies.
Violet Mizutsune, Flaming Espinas, and Risen Chameleos will join the game on September 29. Another content addition, Free Title Update 3, is planned for November 2022.
Resident Evil Village DLC was mentioned again, with a new trailer giving us a deeper dive into the Third Person Mode, the Rose story DLC, and the Mercenaries additions.
It will release on the 28th of October, and, additionally, a cloud version release of the base game will arrive on the Nintendo Switch. Similar versions are being worked on by Capcom to port RE2, RE3 and RE7 to the portable console.
RE4 was only mentioned in passing at TGS, with the announcement that it will release on the PS4 despite the earlier focus on next-gen only. We’ll know more about the game during Capcom’s Resident Evil presentation next month.
Megaman is getting a Battle Network Legacy Collection release which includes 10 titles. The collection adds a few new features. It will be released on Switch, PS4, and Steam.
Capcom’s TGS trailers
Exoprimal got a new story trailer that played both during Capcom and Xbox’s presentations. The game is set in 2043, inside an island where players are being forced into a wargame by a rogue AI named Leviathan.
This game looks extremely bizarre but interesting. The suits look very similar to Warframe’s models and seem to be divided into a similar class system. The small dinosaurs just appear to be a different way of representing zombie hordes, but the bigger enemies have an almost Monster Hunter feel to them. What a strange sentence to write.
Lastly, Street Fighter VI got a brand-new trailer that goes over the three main modes of the game: World Tour, Battle Hub, and Fighting Ground. We got the chance to see 4 updated characters in Dhalsim, E. Honda, Blanka, and Ken. We also got a glimpse into how each of them will work. The game will have a Closed Beta in October.
We’ll know more about the newest addition to the Street Fighter family tomorrow when the game will get its own show at Tokyo Games Show 2022.
We’ll maintain our coverage here at Jaxon, don’t miss it!
