San Diego Comic-Con 2019 starts in just a few days, and Capcom will be bringing the latest and greatest for attendees to check out! It’s going to be hot out there this summer, but you’ll be able to stay cool with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and lots more at the Capcom booth (#215, Hall A).

DEMOS

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC)
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the massive expansion for the smash hit Monster Hunter: World, drops September 6 th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PC version coming this winter! If you haven’t had the chance to get your hands on Iceborne ’s new locale via the online betas, swing over to the Capcom booth and join three other hunters to take on chilling quests against fearsome monsters. The two main quests featured at SDCC are “Hunt a Banbaro” and “Hunt a Tigrex,” both taking place in the all-new, expansive tundra of Hoarfrost Reach. Banbaro, a brand new monster for Iceborne , is capable of picking up a variety of objects from the environment (such as boulders and trees) and bulldozing them around with attacks that change in size depending on what been caught up in its horns. For seasoned veterans, the relentless Tigrex makes its return, ready to hit hunters with the full force of a runaway train. Don’t forget your Hot Drinks as you explore – you’ll need them to survive the chilly landscape, and you don’t want to run out of stamina against these fearsome foes.

Once you’ve finished your quest, be sure to take a picture with the adorable Palico stationed at the booth! It may be unseasonably dressed for summertime, but it’s perfectly equipped for exploring the frigid Hoarfrost Reach when Iceborne releases on September 6 th . If you can’t wait to get into the action, Monster Hunter: World is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You’ll need to finish the main story to get access to the new story, area, and monsters, so now is a great time to get started – or dive back in – and get ready for the expansion!

Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 (Nintendo Switch)

Announced at E3 earlier this year, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 are coming to Nintendo Switch! Marking the first time both of these games are available on a mobile platform, these survival horror titles can be taken for a spin on Nintendo Switch at SDCC. Both games will include all previously released DLC when they release this fall on Nintendo Switch, making it a great time to check out these classics if you missed them the first time around, or just want some co-op play on-the-go.

Highly regarded for its co-op gameplay, Resident Evil 5 puts you in the boots of Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar, a pair of highly trained B.S.A.A. agents seeking to prevent the sale of a bio-organic weapon and uncovering a much larger plot as a result.

Resident Evil 6 follows various interconnected stories, bringing together fan-favorite characters such as Leon S. Kennedy and newcomers like Helena Harper. Travel the world and play each story solo or with a friend to unravel the full picture behind a sinister conspiracy that threatens the entire world. Both games will include all previously released DLC when they release later this year on Nintendo Switch, making it a great time to check out these favorites if you’re looking for co-op on-the-go or missed them the first time around.
