Japanese developers are all about teaser and countdown websites, and the latest comes from Capcom. The countdown started last night and will end on February 20 at 10:00 p.m. (PT), so it’s about a week of waiting.
We often see these teaser websites from the likes of Nippon Ichi Software for its many smaller-scale titles. We’ve even seen Square Enix go with a big seven-day countdown for The World Ends with You back in November 2020, which ended up being an announcement for NEO: The World Ends with You. On the other hand, Capcom, the developer of Mega Man, Monster Hunter, and the Resident Evil series, isn’t exactly known for doing teasers or countdowns.
The countdown teaser website from Capcom doesn’t have any information or hints on what it could be, but there are a number of possibilities. The only thing the website displays is what you see in the above image, which is the days and hours remaining until the full reveal. The countdown will end on February 20, which coincides with the conclusion of the Street Fighter Pro Tour Season Final, so there could be some kind of connection there. It’s also worth noting that Capcom is teasing this announcement in all regions. In any case, we’ll find out what it is next week so stay tuned for more details.
Here’s a little teaser tweet from Capcom:
