Capcom Looking to Revive Series that Have Been Quiet of Late

mvc-inf-320

If you're a Capcom fan, the company has some news that might get your attention.

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite has been announced, but Capcom isn't done yet. In the press release announcing the late 2017 launch of the newest MvC, the company mentions that it's been five years since that series had a new game. It goes on to announce that this is just the beginning for Capcom IPs that have laid dormant for a while.

Apparently, Capcom plans to add to their normal release schedule of what they call "major title." According to the press release, "Capcom is currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP."

Obviously, there are plenty of games in Capcom's back catalog that gamers would love to see make a comeback. Just off the top of my head, I could think of Dino Crisis, Onimusha, Ghosts and Goblins, and Viewtiful Joe, just to name a few. Most notably, I'd like to see a completely new from the ground up version of Mega Man. Let's make it happen, Capcom.

If there's a Capcom game that you'd like to see make a comeback, let us know what it is in the forums!

Even if it's just an HD remake I'd say the original Steel Battalion for The Original Xbox.
....
Unfortunately that would also mean a Steel Battalion Controller which I doubt Capcom will ever do again.

Does anyone remember Deep Down? That tech demo game unveiled waaaay back when the PS4 was revealed and sank into development hell?

Theres also Dragons Dogma (and no i dont count the MMO) Darkstalkers, Bionic Commando, Okami... think thats pretty much it.

Well i suppose theres Asuras Wrath too. But nobody in thier right mind would try to bring back anything that bombed that hard.

But until any of this sentiment is actually realised, look forward to yearly installments of Monster Hunter, and incremental updates of Street Fighter and presumably Marvel vs Capcom.

Though as to Megaman, i have to wonder how much better Capcom would do than Mighty No. 9.

Com,pletely new from the ground up ... well, that's just slightly less work than it would take to create a new IP. Let's also be honest. You and every other fanbeing, would piss and moan if they deviated more trhan an inch from the standard formula. WHille I wouldn't mind more compilations being done for PC like MMclassics on steam. a completely new maegaman. At this point the most they can do is release a level editor.

As for what they should bring back. I think it's worth a look at their old arcade franchises. the CPS-1 and CPS-2 and yes even the CPS-3 games. Those were some great games.

GIVE ME A NEW GODDAMN DARKSTALKERS THEN.

Ooooooooh Snap! Product Number 3 sequel!
...
Don't give me that look, at least 2 of you know what I'm talking about and one of you would be on board.

I'd like to see Dino Crisis come back as a survival horror. It was cathartic playing as paramilitary bad-asses in the second and playing as a gate-keeper in the first but I'd like to play as a random Joe-Schmoe in the heart of the good ol' US-of-A during the inevitable Dinosaur Apocalypse.

It would be really, really neat if Capcom and Nintendo struck another Gamecube-esq deal whereby Cap produces X number of exclusive Switch games. Obviously they would be timed exclusives because Capcom is Capcom but this was the deal that spawned Viewtiful Joe and Resident Evil 4...and Zero...and the Resi-one remake that was so good it wasn't HD-ified until this past year.

Other than that I'd like to see Mega Man 9 and 10 added to a definitive Mega Man collection. The 3DS (and other consoles I guess) collection was alright but bafflingly light on content: 1-6 is all well and good but 7 was a gem and 8 was...remembered. Ideally I'd like to see these games given a graphical update like what happened with Wily Wars back on the Genesis in the EU.

I'd be happy (and a bunch of other people I'm sure) if Capcom would just release a complete edition of Asura's Wrath. You can't just cut off the ending and sell it as DLC down the line and not expect to piss people off.

True, but the game bombed long before anyone knew about the DLC chapters.

God Hand...


I'll say it every opportunity i get, at the very least Gene should be in MVCI.

Heck, just an Onimusha 1 and 2 remaster I'd by hyped for. Though that'd probably mean they'd have to pay royalties to the actors whose faces they used in the game. This is probably why they never even released the stadard PS2 versions on PSN.

I'll be happy if they just release Battle Network DS on the Wii U virtual console

I wouldn't care how much they change. The old formula is done, and they need something new to make Mega Man matter again.

Although a level editor might be cool, too.

Can we get some fucking megaman in here please?

In which case you'd just be stamping Megaman iconography on something that isn'tr Megaman related. It's like if you reskined Ace Attourney with megaman Sprites
. If the series is done. It's done. We've seen how this plays out with movie franchises where in their desperate quest to ressurect something they slap the iconography over something that does not fit and the result just winds up disappointing fans and new commers alike.

Megaman Legends 3 Capcom. Release that, make sure it's good, and I'll take back everything I ever said against you.

Either that, or Maverick Hunter X 2. Preferably with another Vile mode. Dude brought a LOT more to the game.

Ya know, Mega Man Legends was vastly different from the classic and X titles, but was still vastly popular with the Mega Man fanbase. A new Mega Man game could easily play like Warframe or a similar fast-paced third-person shooter. As long as the themes and characters are in place, Mega Man can pretty much be whatever Capcom needs it to be, considering the series has come in a lot of different flavors over the years.

I'd love to see more Mega Man in the future, but I'd just as soon see Devil May Cry be revived.

Breath of Fire when Capcom?

And no I don't mean the weird Facebook/App game you are making/have made

Why has no one mentioned Breath of Fire yet? Is transforming into a dragon not good enough for anyone here? I want a new Breath of Fire game. Something around the likes of Breath of Fire 3 again would be nice.

TELL ME, FFRONW! WHY IS BREATH OF FIRE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ANYONE?!

Not gonna lie, I totally forgot Breath of Fire.

This announcement was light on details, but at least it's better than nothing.

Was it really that popular. or is it just one that everyone talks about. There is popular in discussion and popular in sales. Me things Legends was the former to the latter. if it was populaqr sales wise It would not have stopped after only 3 titles. I is officially the shortest Megaman Series out there. Even Starforce had more iterations.

A new Mega Man game could easily play like Warframe or a similar fast-paced third-person shooter. As long as the themes and characters are in place, Mega Man can pretty much be whatever Capcom needs it to be, considering the series has come in a lot of different flavors over the years.

So A warframe witha Megaman Skin. Just saying if all you're going to do is Reskin something else with Megaman colours.. you might as well ttry building a new franchise.

Ditto.. but after the last BoF game.. it's kinda understandable. Seriousl, though. Series was great up to part 4.

I want another Capcom 5, the 4 games that released were what launched Shinji Mikami into the world, I want to see someone new to take the wheel if this big of a project ever gets greenlit.

Besides that: A new Ghost Trick, Okami, Dino Crisis, Zack and Wiki, Mega Man (and none of that spin-off shovelware that comes with it), a new Devil May Cry with the old Dante from Devil May Cry and that's all I can remember.

Soooooo... P.N. 04?

They already tried modernizing Mega Man, many times:
Rockman online: 2D action in a MMO setting (cancelled)
Mega Man Universe: A Mario Maker-style level editor (cancelled)
Maverick Hunter: An attempt to bring the franchise to 3D, Metroid Prime-style. (cancelled)

Breath of Fire. More love for Phoenix Wright(why didn't we get that prequel again?). Mega Man. Work with Disney again to bring out a remastered Goof Troop for the SNES for PS4/XB1/PC. And Demons Crest.

MEGAMAN

LEGENDS

3!

MML3 or fuck Capcom. Who am I kidding? Fuck Capcom.

This is why I can't bring myself to hate Capcom like everyone else did back then. For every blunder like with Resident Evil 6, DmC:DevilMayCry, and the DLC troubles they have, They then release stuff like Marvel Vs Capcom 3(Shut up I liked the game), Ducktales Remastered, and the recent Strider. It's also why I saw coming the absolute hate people now have for Konami since they have no such thing to fall back on like Capcom does since they pissed away both Contra, Castlevania, and the rest of their classic franchises over the years.

So anyways, They should start with Megaman just so people can finally shut up about they killed him these days. But personally for me however, I want Dino Crisis to come back. Mainly because dinosaurs used to scare me as a kid due to this series, the Jurassic Park films, and even to a certain extent, Disney's Dinosaur. Like This scene used to freak me out as a kid.

Like I'm imagining a Dino Crisis reboot where you're an armed soldier with a good amount of weapons on hand, but it won't mean as much when you're dealing with Velociraptors who are fast, deadly, and sometimes know how to sneak up on you or even trick you if you're not careful and not aware of your environment, which will lead to a death screen of a raptor or more tearing you to shreds as as your player character is screaming for what little life he/she has left. That there is my kind of horror!

MerlinCross:

Id pay good money for that! I also want to see a Knights of the Round remake (think King Arthur legend meets final fight meets anime), Strider and Final Fight. Captain Commando has to be my favourite scrolling beatem up of the era though. The charecters were great! A knife wielding mummy, a baby in a mech, a ninja and of course, Cap!

Id also like a hardcore side scrolling bionic commando.

On the one hand, Okami.

On the other, lacking Clover and likely not being able to get Platinum on it, I can't see Capcom doing anything good with Okami.

You could say the the same thing about Metroid Prime or Ocarina of Time. I'd love to see Megaman transition into 3d game design properly.

So, went to the Capcom article on Wikipedia, and found that the only Capcom franchises I can claim any level of familiarity with are Street Fighter, Dino Crisis, and Resident Evil, and that Resident Evil is the only one of those three that I can claim any level of familiarity with bar saying "I played one of their games once."

So...is this the point where I say I'm "culturally deprived?"

But hey, revivals of fallow series, can't complain I guess.

HENSHIN A GO-GO, BABY!

Please Capcom, I NEED more Viewtiful Joe in my life. At least give us Viewtiful Joe 3 with some proper closure for the main story. Surely that isn't too much to ask?

Yes, Dragon's Dogma 2 or Deep Down please. It almost seems like Deep Down isn't going to happen, they have 2 more years to show me they are still making it, after that, I won't buy that guy they didn't make.

Fox12:

i second that

I really don't get the hate for BoF V. I mean, the graphics were bad (but other than IV, they always were), the plot and characters were mediocre (but they were in the other games, too). The battle system was different (in an awesome way). There weren't enough characters and the game was too linear and the color palate was far too dark, but I thought V was the best of the franchise, with the possible exception of IV. And I say this as someone who's beaten all the games except III, which just felt like a bad version of IV. Different strokes, I guess.
