Capcom looking for fans to fill a live digital audience for their Monster Hunter Digital Event

Live in front of a studio audience...at home

Late last week, Capcom announced a Monster Hunter Digital Event for March 9th, 2021. This will be a virtual event, and Capcom wants to include fans in the showcase by having them appear in a virtual audience.

Capcom Japan has opened up applications for the event, and they're looking for 1,000 different people to participate through a Zoom call. Even though this application is open in Japan, Capcom says audience members from the world over are welcome. Participants will get to take home a special Monster Hunter Rise t-shirt and clear file, but those items will only be given out to Japanese viewers. Along with that, all participants will get a digital download code that can be redeemed in Monster Hunter Rise for special items.

Capcom Arcade Stadium version of Street Fighter II removes the "Rising Sun" imagery from E. Honda's stage

Street Fighter II aficionados have noticed something different with the version of Street Fighter II in Capcom Arcade Stadium.

As you might have spotted above, E. Honda's stage is looking a little different. The original version of the game featured imagery from the Rising Sun flag, which became known as the flag of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. This is a controversial image in parts of East Asia, which led to Capcom's removal of the imagery.

Capcom has altered E. Honda's stage to remove the imagery in other recent re-releases of Street Fighter II as well.

Street Fighter content teased for Fortnite

Ryu's ready to get sweaty

Those who've been playing Fortnite recently have no doubt seen the portals that are popping up around the map. Those portals gave us a tip on Tron content being added to the game, and now they're showing a completely different tease.

As you can see in the video above, the portals are now showing off a tease of Ryu's arena from Street Fighter. That seems like a pretty solid tease for a Ryu skin in the game, but it's likely there will be a few other Street Fighter skins added as well. Expect an official announcement of Street Fighter content from Epic very soon.
