::UPDATE:: Added info on Monster Hunter signing with Fujioka-san!
Calling all New Yorkers and people who just like hanging out there! Capcom will once again be at New York Comic Con this year, and here’s what we’ll have to offer.
First and most importantly, we’ll have games! Come by the Capcom booth and check out the latest playable builds of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, and Resident Evil Revelations 2, all of which are certifiably awesome. You may find yourself playing through these demos more than once.
MONSTER HUNTER SIGNING (with Fujioka-san)
Date: Friday, Oct 10
Location: 1363, Broadway and 33rd
A rare opportunity to meet and have something signed by Monster Hunter series director Kaname Fujioka! Posters will be available, but you can also bring you personal Monster Hunter items to have signed!
We’ll also be bringing the Capcom Store back to NYCC for the first time in 4 years! Unfortunately it’ll be a little smaller than past Capcom Store booths due to space restrictions, but that doesn’t mean we won’t have tons of cool stuff for sale.
First and foremost, we have some stock of our hit Mega Man Replica Helmet.
These babies stand about 10″ tall, made of solid chrome resin, helmet detaches easily from the base, and the included USB power cord and adaptor enable the base and helmet to light up when plugged in! Each unit is individually numbered for collector’s cred. This is unquestionably the coolest Mega Man collectible ever made.
That said, stock will be very limited! We will have both blue and red variant versions available–$80 each–but supplies won’t last long.
NYC is known for high fashion, and we’ll be catering to those cultured fans with two exclusive high-end watches – the STREET FIGHTER watch with Shadaloo symbols on the face and the RESIDENT EVIL watch with the Umbrella Corporation logo at the “12” spot. Each watch is a high-end collectible made by quality watch maker Meister, made of stainless steel, water resistant up to 10M, individually numbered and comes in a quality collector’s case. Only 250 made of each design – so when they are gone, they’re gone. They go for $250 each but worth it as an investment that you can wear and enjoy for a lifetime.
For the monster hunting element, we will have our exclusive Monster Hunter plushies available! Take home either an adorable Rathian or Yian Kut-Ku, and you don’t even have to worry about potty training them. These soft and cuddly versions of the beloved in-game monsters come in their own egg shell packaging with a balanced bottom so they can sit in their shell on display after you have cracked them open. Each one will go for 20 bucks.
