With the likes of Devil May Cry 5
, Monster Hunter: World
and Resident Evil 2: Remake
's recent hits have been major entries in well-known franchises that impressed both visually and in terms of their scope. As part of a new comprehensive company outlook
the studio notes that it plans to "revive dormant intellectual properties" and increase its investment in developers.
Naturally this has sparked the imagination of Capcom fans the world over as they've been thinking about what these new entries would cover.
Dino Crisis, Onimusha, Viewtiful Joe, Power Stone, Bionic Commando, Mega Man, Final Fight, Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Lost Planet, there are many classic Capcom properties that we haven't heard from in a while. Especially not in the sort of AAA package we've found with the likes of Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.
Interestingly the detailed report notes that the traditionally Japanese focused studio will expand its approach to try and reach a wider audience - thanks in part to the massive success Monster Hunter: World found in western markets.
So, the question is - what classic Capcom franchise or game would you want to see make a comeback?
