New York Comic Con is set kick off this coming weekend, and the event’s official website has just confirmed that Capcom will be in attendance to make some announcements about their two fighting games: Street Fighter V and the newly-released Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

With SFV recently receiving a September update with premium costumes and Cammy’s classic stage, as well as concept art being leaked for five of MvC:I’s upcoming DLC characters, this event seems like the perfect time to show off the final Season 2 DLC character for SFV –– widely believed to be Zeku — as well as what else could lie in store for Street Fighter V. In addition, we’re likely to see some reveal trailers — and perhaps some release dates — for some of Marvel’s DLC characters; NYCC saw the announcements for Street Fighter X Tekken and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 in the past.

The official website notes that Capcom will be at the NYCC Live Stage, Booth 174 on Friday, October 6th, from 1:45-2:15 PM ET (10:45 AM PT), with the description of the event reading: “Capcom drops by the Twitch stage to show off the latest content from two of their popular fighting games.” Each game is scheduled for 15 minutes of air time with the Street Fighter V segment happening first. The announcements should be streamed on https://www.twitch.tv/twitch.
