CAPCOM Spotlight March 9 2023 Live Reaction!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Buy Ghost Trick.

Many videogame companies had presentations today, but for today's KoopaTV article, we'll be live-reacting to CAPCOM's presentation, the Capcom Spotlight of March 9, 2023. You can watch the presentation yourself here... I can't embed it here due to the presentation settings blocking that.

Before the Spotlight started, CAPCOM promised discussions on Resident Evil 4, Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (a must-buy, and the existence of its port was revealed last month), and Exoprimal. I can tell you that the Spotlight did end up including more than those games!

[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa:
[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Before the spotlight, CAPCOM Spotlight begins, it's a bunch of CAPCOM Creators influencers (so they're presumably all streamers) talking over a bunch of old trailers.
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I hope they go away when it actually starts, because we need ME writing over a bunch of NEW trailers.
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or maybe they were CAPCOM employees the whole time because they said "our games".
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: First game to be discussed is Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam next month.
[5:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Masakazu Eguchi AKA Mr. Famous, the collection's director, wants to share news.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean, these games have been out for quite a while and I never figured out what the gameplay is actually like.
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But this Legacy Collection has a mode that looks like it'll OHKO everything (increase damage by 100 times, Buster MAX Mode) if you just want to watch the story, which implies this series has a story worth enjoying. But there are also 499 "Patch Cards" for Battle Networks 4, 5, and 6. And online multiplayer.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND we can watch MegaMan NT Warrior, the old Mega Man Battle Network animated series, for free (for a limited time) starting in a few weeks.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Meanwhile, we're already on Street Fighter 6.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "There are a number of ways to play beyond just fighting", including a virtual arcade hub.
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're... showing an in-game colour commentator? A Japanese girl who doesn't seem to be commentating with much fighting... uh... specific knowledge.
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Hikaru Takahashi" is her name; apparently that's the name of a real person and she's not a Street Fighter character.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And she's one of eight commentators you can toggle, and there are several options around this commentary.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I mean... I guess it's better than in Pokkén where everything had that one annoying woman.
[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: CAPCOM Town... is... a digital theme park they're opening June 12, 2023.
[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: is a website they want me to check out.
[5:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Did I write the URL down? It's a 404 error.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rather than figure that out, I need to watch this about Exoprimal.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're begging me to watch to the end of their Exoprimal trailer "because there are surprises."
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, that just makes me not really pay attention to everything else leading to the end.
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But even if I was I'm not sure what to commentate here. Dudes in colourful suits shooting dinosaurs.
[5:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Very sci-fi.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: July 14.
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "OPEN BETA TEST March 17 to March 19" is that the surprise? And there's a "Deluxe Edition" with a "Survival Pass 1".
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Purchase the Premium Tier to earn these rewards"
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And on Xbox Game Pass.
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright, the narrator is going to explain all of that vomit of information to me.
[5:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Found a typo in their open captions. :D

Exoprimal Capcom Spotlight power of exosuits Open Beta March 2023 Dino Survival
It's incredibly difficult for me to write “dinsoaurs”... I need to attempt that multiple times.

[5:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: As you play their Survival Pass, you get awards, and there is a free tier and a premium paid tier. Awards including suits and emotes.
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They say they're looking forward to seeing me in the Open Beta Test, as a big dinosaur is on-screen to welcome me into its mouth.
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OKAY GHOST TRICK.
[5:44 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: June 30, 2023.
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They shout-out that it's made from Ace Attorney's Shu Takumi.
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So that's our Ace Attorney cameo for the show.
[5:45 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BUY GHOST TRICK
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Anyway, they're explaining basic story and gameplay, including possessing objects and tricking objects (making them do things), go back four minutes before someone's death.
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: High-res graphics, increased frame rate, a sliding puzzle bonus game, and ALL 37 TRACKS FROM THE GAME HAVE NEWLY ARRANGED VERSIONS.
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You can switch between original and new versions as you play.
[5:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: wtf Shu Takumi is on-screen
[5:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GREAT ACE ATTORNEY CAMEO

Shu Takumi Capcom Spotlight Ghost Trick Phantom Detective music Yasumasa Kitagawa Ace Attorney
Yasumasa Kitagawa did a great job.
All 37 Ghost Trick tracks have been rearranged, and there's one new track by original composer Masakazu Sugimori.

[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pre-order bonus includes a "background set"? And a "two-song music set"?
[5:48 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...Background of wot, though?
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They want us to buy Monster Hunter Rise on new platforms, and Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is also on new platforms.
[5:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Coming April 28, 2023)
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm still wondering what an increased frame rate for Ghost Trick is supposed to accomplish when the animations for the original were already...well, amazing sprite-work, quite frankly.
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So it'll be even smoother?
[5:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OH Nintendo Switch free title updates.
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will get its own digital event next month to discuss what those updates are.
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And now to Resident Evil. (Hopefully not on the Cloud.)
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "RESIDENT EVIL DEATH ISLAND" Summer 2023.
[5:51 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uhhh but wot is it
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: A movie?
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Resident Evil 4 is being re-re-released soon in two weeks on non-Nintendo platforms.
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Back in MY day, Resident Evil 4 was a Nintendo GameCube exclusive.
[5:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (...though that exclusivity didn't last.)
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And there's a Chainsaw Demo available today of Resident Evil 4.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "No time limit" and no play limit.
[5:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (So you can play a "portion" of it at your leisure.)
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LOTS OF THINGS ON SALE NOW.
[5:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And that's all for the event.
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I have more to discuss about the CAPCOM PUBLISHER SALE, but that'll be for an article coming next week.
[5:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Buy Ghost Trick.
[5:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And, yeah, the URL is and it still doesn't work.
[6:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It has come to my attention that the Ghost Trick section had several typos, which is why I didn't understand what was going on.

Ghost Trick Phantom Detective remastered port pre-order bonus four image background set
It should be spelled...
  • Missile
  • Kamila and Missile (they spelled Missile's name wrong here despite being correct in the first bullet point)
  • Sissel and Lynne
  • Ray and the Black Cat (someone here didn't use their spacebar)

[6:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Ghost Trick website has it spelled correctly.
[6:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The "background" is during the game to play on the sides of the game to make up for the differences in aspect ratios.
[6:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alrighty, BUY. And BUY (pre-order?) Ghost Trick.

Pre-orders for Ghost Trick are now available. The website states, “*Content can be downloaded from the store where you bought the download version, or via the download code included in the retail version.” But the only way to pre-order the game (or purchase it in general) appears to be through digital purchase. That seems... misleading!

The previous Capcom Spotlight... or then-called the Capcom Showcase, was in June 2022. Exoprimal was also there.
Here is that dedicated CAPCOM PUBLISHER SALE article.
The next Capcom Showcase was in June 2023. Exoprimal was there, too, but so were far more important items, including Shu Takumi again.

  1. Honestly, I would very much enjoy a chance to watch the MMBN cartoon properly. Though I can't seem to find *where* it'll be available in 11 days?

    1. "We’ve just decrypted a fresh batch of Mystery Data about Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection from today’s Capcom Spotlight broadcast, and you read that right – we’re running a marathon of Mega Man Battle Network “NT Warrior” on Twitch starting March 21st at 10:00 AM PT!

      We’ll have a full run of episodes from the first two seasons – complete with English dubs – for you to enjoy alongside Twitch chat. " -

  2. I got my preorder in as soon as they became available (which was before the actual showcase).

    Too bad we aren't getting physical copies here, though. Japan is getting a limited edition that includes some sort of puzzle box with a story(?) set in the Ghost Trick universe.

    1. I'm a hypocrite and haven't pre-ordered (yet).

    2. Play-Asia has physical copies with English.

    3. Eh? How's that possible? Does the Japanese version have the English localisation loaded on it?
