Exoprimal, a brand new IP from Capcom, was the first announcement from Sony’s State of Play. You know those team shooters with swarming tech for the zombies? That, but sci-fi and with dinosaurs.
Exoprimal is coming out in 2023 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, it may also be coming to other formats but as it was revealed during a Sony event those were nor revealed.
UPDATE: Surprise surprise, Exoprimal is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam!
This is the second big announcement from Capcom in recent weeks as they have also revealed Street Fighter 6 is on it’s way.
What we do know is that Ryu is now a very, very wide boy and looks like he could take on Dudley, Eunice and Franklin all at once – this comment won’t make any sense after we’re out of the UK’s current week of stormy weather. Opposite him? Well, it’s new lad Luke, who was introduced at the end of Street Fighter V’s lifespan. An MMA fighter, he was touted at the time being as part of the future of the franchise with Capcom noting that Luke has a “bright future ahead of him” and “will help expand the world of Street Fighter and provide fans with a glimpse into the future.”

Rumours suggest that Street Fighter VI might be hitting the big red reset button on the franchise. A certain character in Street Fight V says that they need to “start it all over again, from zero,” which maybe a reference to Street Fighter Alpha series and some time travel shenanigans, though the teaser trailer looks more like a fight between the old and the new. Maybe Ryu’s come out of retirement for one last fight, like a kind of Rocky Balboa story arc?
