Capcom Looking To Revive Dead And Forgotten IPs

by Damian Seeto


Marvel vs. Capcom may not be the only forgotten IP that Capcom is planning to bring back. Other famous franchises might be getting new games in the future.

Capcom announced in a press release that the Marvel vs. Capcom series has shipped over 7 million copies worldwide. In the same announcement, they tout that other IPs from their library might be coming back.

The announcement said: “In addition to regular major title releases each fiscal year, Capcom is currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP. Beginning with MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE, a return for the series following a five-year hiatus, Capcom looks to enhance its corporate value even further by utilizing its library of rich content

We do know that Resident Evil 7 is out next year and updates are continuing to be released for Street Fighter V. There are lots of other games that have not had a new iteration in many years that could see a comeback.

Maybe the biggest clue is Mega Man. Mega Man has been left dormant for many years, yet the character is back in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite. Fans have wanted a new Mega Man game for years now and it’s about time for him to come back.

Another franchise in need for a revival is Dino Crisis. Resident Evil 7 is playable with PlayStation VR, but imagine what VR could be like with a T-Rex charging at you. That will be scary and cool to see.

Fans also want to see Devil May Cry 5. A lot of people didn’t like DmC and wanted a proper sequel of the franchise. Devil May Cry 5 might be enough for Capcom to bring back the fans that hated the direction of the aforementioned DmC.

Let us know in the comments section below the type of Capcom franchises you’d like to see come back.
