Capcom is set to announce not one, but two brand new Namco vs. Capcom titles during Comic-Con on July 24, if a source of Game Informer’s is to be believed.
To set facts straight, there will definitely be a trailer on July 24. Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono has said at EVO 2010 that a new trailer will definitely be shown off on this date. This will compliment Capcom’s new game announcement at Comic-Con, which has been teased and anticipated for a couple weeks now.
Now, for the rumor. According to GI’s source, not one, but TWO new Namco vs. Capcom games are in development – one using the Street Fighter IV engine and another using the Tekken 6 engine. Each game will be handled by one side. Ono is rumored to produce the Capcom game, while Harada is rumored to produce the Namco game.
Looks like we’ll see come Saturday. It would be pretty cool to pit Mega Man against Pac Man, wouldn’t it? They couldn’t use merely Tekken characters, right?
