Capcom will have a nice presence at SDCC this year. Resident Evil 6 will be prominently displayed at their booth, as well as some games, exclusives, freebies, and previews of whats the come. Capcom will play host to five panels including the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary, Getting a Job in the Games Field, Resident Evil 6, Lost Planet 3 & Devil May Cry: Westward Bound, and The World of Capcom. Capcom will also be the largest video game both at SDCC … the floor plan looks amazing.
