Capcom Is Interested In Bringing Back More Of Its IP

In a survey, the Japanese publisher asks if there is interest in continuing certain IPs, and one franchise has been dormant for almost two decades, although there is certainly a demand for it today.


Capcom has a website called Capcom Town to celebrate its 40th birthday. Capcom says it’s the best digital destination for their tourists and updates it frequently with new features. For example, they have a section dedicated to their retro games, a museum, and you can even download Capcom-themed Twitter icons from the site.

In February, the company launched its Super Elections survey, and there are ten questions about Capcom to answer. One of the questions is: “Are there any Capcom game series (including spin-offs) that you would like to see get a sequel or new game? Capcom listed no less than TWENTY options. Another question: “Is there any game you would like to see completely remade with the latest technology, including character design and story direction?” Here, the Japanese company has listed nine options.

Although the survey will remain open until April 12, Capcom has already released a word cloud showing the most common responses. The biggest buzzwords were Dino Crisis and Mega Man, and while Mega Man 11 was released five years ago and has yet to receive a sequel, Dino Crisis has been neglected for a very long time, and Exoprimal, which focuses on dinosaur hunting, is no substitute for the original experience. Ace Attorney and Resident Evil have also appeared in smaller fonts, but in the runner-up category are Onimusha, Devil May Cry, Darkstalkers, Okami, and Breath of the Fire.

In the Japanese version, Breath of Fire, Rockman (=Mega Man), Gyakuten Saiban (=Ace Attorney) and Sengoku Basara stood out the most. Tastes differ…
