Capcom at PAX East 2016

Apr 19, 2016 // Kellen Haney

This year is just flying by, isn’t it? Spring is in full swing, and that means it’s time for PAX East to open their doors at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (Booth #3117) starting this Friday, April 22 nd , for three full days of gaming goodness!

With Monster Hunter Generations just announced, Capcom will be there with demos for new hunters and series veterans alike. Umbrella Corps brings intense three vs. three matches along for the ride with demos of the recently announced Multi-Match Mode, and Street Fighter V takes it to the street – well, the show floor – for you to test your fighting game skills against other show goers. And, as always, the Capcom Store will be there with plenty of great stuff for sale!

Games and Demos (Booth # 3117)

  • Monster Hunter Generations – Get your paws on the latest in the aptly-named series about, well, hunting monsters! Hunt alone or join with others to take down familiar and new monsters, while celebrating the series’ history through re-imagined locations and villages. Choose from four Hunting Styles that change the way you play, from the traditional Guild Style, to the high-flying Aerial Style, and more. Also, try out the new Hunter Arts that can completely change the tide of battle and the way you use familiar weapons to hunt beasts both great and small. Single player and multiplayer stations will be available for solo and group hunters alike!
  • Umbrella Corps – The fast-paced shooter set in Resident Evil environments will be on display, with three vs. three high-intensity, close-quarter matches of the recently announced Multi-Match Mode. Unleash brutal takedowns with the Brainer melee axe, take a tactical approach by destroying your opponent’s Zombie Jammer, and work with your squad to survive both the undead hordes and the enemy team’s onslaught to come out on top! We’ll have daily tournaments, so get your own corps together for a shot at some great prizes!
  • Street Fighter V – Rise up in Street Fighter V! Casual play will be available throughout the day, delivering all the ambience and noise of the old school days at your local mall or pizza place’s arcade without needing to put a quarter up on the machine first. Haven’t been keeping up with Street Fighter? No worries – familiar faces meet the flying fists of four new fearsome fighters, so no matter your style, you’re sure to find the answer in the heart of battle.

  Capcom Store

The Capcom Store is always a great place to grab the latest and greatest gear, and this year’s PAX East will be no exception! They’ll have some special offers and rare items as well, including:

Monster Hunter T-shirts
A limited amount of t-shirts featuring the iconic stylings of Brachydios, Rathalos, Zinogre, and Poogie will be available in limited sizes – once they’re gone, they’re gone , so make sure you grab one right away!

Monster Hunter Series 1 Pin Set and Lanyards
These pins and lanyards are always popular, displaying Palicoes in their monster-themed armor, and an extremely limited amount will be available at PAX East! This may be the last show they’re offered at, so if you’re interested, make sure you’re there early!

Ryu and Shadaloo T-shirts
Now this is a special – no EX meter required! The store will be offering a set of both Ryu and Shadaloo t-shirts, 2 for $15. The Ryu tees feature the iconic fighter with his arms crossed, ready for battle, while the Shadaloo tee (a personal favorite of mine) is emblazoned with the winged skull Shadaloo logo. Even evil organizations have appearances to keep up.

Udon Art Books
A selection of Udon’s art books, covering all things Capcom, will be available for up to 50% off. It’s a good time to stock up on some amazing art.

Mad Catz Chun-Li Fight Stick
No longer available through Mad Catz or retailers at MSRP, these limited-run fight sticks are sure to be gone in a flash (of lightning legs). Don’t miss out!

There’s plenty to do at the Capcom booth, so if you’re going to be at PAX East, come say hello and don’t miss out!
