Capcom has announced their lineup of New York Comic-Con game demos. They appear to be sticking with a spooky Halloween theme for October. Attendees will get the chance to experience the horrifying Resident Evil 7 VR experience. Then they will encounter more zombies than you can shake a stick at (or a flaming scythe-katana combo thing, for that matter) in the Dead Rising 4 demo. Finally, they will face their worst nightmare — the terrifying sight of Street Fighter V‘s newest character, Urien, in a mankini. These Capcom demos will be available to all show attendees in booth #1420.

This isn’t the first time some of these Capcom demos have been available to the public. All three games were in the Capcom booth at PAX West last month or appeared at Gamescom earlier this year. However, this is the first time this particular Resident Evil 7 VR demo is playable in North America. It is also the first time people will get to see the upcoming Street Fighter V Halloween costumes in action. Here are the full demo details from the press release:
