Ace Attorney 4, 5 and 6 will be re-released, and gameplay for Dragon’s Dogma 2 is revealed, but Pragmata is delayed again. Here are our highlights from the Capcom Showcase…

The Capcom Showcase aired last night, providing a handful of new game reveals, along with more news on others. We’ve put together a list of highlights, but you can watch the whole half-hour showcase here.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess was already announced as part of the Xbox Showcase on Sunday, and the Capcom Showcase rolled out the same trailer again. But the RE Engine-powered visuals look lovely, so let’s watch it again.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 was previously announced at the PlayStation Showcase, but we got some more footage of the game last night, along with a few more details from director Hideaki Itsuno. He confirmed you will have up to three AI-controlled pawns fighting alongside you, and that the game will be around four times the size of the original.

Mega Man X DiVE Offline – logically enough, an offline version of Mega Man X DiVE – is heading to Steam, iOS and Android later this year. Action-platformer Mega Man X DiVE first appeared for Android and Apple devices in 2020, with the western version debuting the following year, and was essentially a free-to-play, gacha take on the series.  The offline version will remove those gacha elements, and as before, will feature characters from across the Mega Man X franchise.

Pragmata, the bizarre looking game in which an astronaut gives a creepy-looking girl piggyback rides, has now been delayed indefinitely. The game was announced in 2020 and originally scheduled to launch in 2022. That was subsequently pushed back to 2023, and now there’s no official release window at all. It does look intriguing, though.

Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective is set to be re-released on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC on 30th June, and there’s a demo available right now. You can read my thoughts on it over here. In short, I like it a lot.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a collection of the latter three Ace Attorney games, and is set to be released in early 2024 on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC. The fifth and sixth games, Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, were previously only available on mobile and through the now-defunct Nintendo 3DS eShop, with only a limited physical release in Japan, so it’s good news they’re coming back.

Exoprimal got a new gameplay trailer, showcasing its enticing mix of robot suits and dinosaurs. Is it a coincidence that the red-haired character looks a bit like Regina from Dino Crisis?

Speaking of which, a remake of Dino Crisis was notable by its absence in the Capcom Showcase, much to the disappointment of many. It’s been 20 years since Dino Crisis 3, by the way. That’s far too long, if you ask me.
