Capcom and Namco Bandai confirm MCM Expo stage presence
As the anticipation for MCM Expo London builds, we reveal what you can expect to see from our GameSpot UK live stage show.
GameSpot UK is the exclusive gaming partner of the MCM Expo this year, and our stage and booth will be home to the biggest and best games of 2011. We're pleased to announce the first major publishing partners that will be showing off their wares on the GameSpot UK stage, with more to be revealed in the run-up to the show.
The first is Capcom, who will be demoing Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition on stage on Saturday morning. The Arcade edition adds Yun and Yang from Street Fighter III as playable characters to Capcom's critically acclaimed brawler, along with the menacing Evil Ryu and a new character called Oni.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition won't be released until June, so MCM Expo London will be your first chance to catch a 30-minute preview of Capcom's brawler, as well as have a chance to play it yourself on stage. The best-dressed Street Fighter characters that come to the stage show at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 28 will also have a chance to win limited edition MCM Expo Street Fighter shirts.
Namco Bandai will be another major publisher with a presence on the GameSpot UK stage on Saturday at 1 p.m., with Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Vicious Cycle Software's PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 third-person shooter won't be out until July, so this will be an exclusive chance to see it before anyone else.
The MCM Expo opens its doors on May 27-29 and will host a plethora of anime, manga, sci-fi, cosplay and video games. The GameSpot UK crew will be in attendance with its booth and stage show, where we'll also be hosting the first-ever live GameSpot UK podcast.
You still have a chance to win one of 50 pairs of tickets. Check out our competition page here and stay tuned to GameSpot UK for more in the run-up to MCM Expo.
