Capcom has seized the era of remakes and turned it into a new golden age for the company. They’ve not only focused on remakes, but have also been consulting players about which classic licenses they would like to see with a new delivery, including everything from Dead Rising to Eyes.
This new golden age for Capcom began with the release of Resident Evil 7. They followed this up with a series of remakes of the zombie saga and games like Monster Hunter World. This diverse array of releases has managed to meet the needs of a wide range of players. With their latest release of Dragon’s Dogma 2, the Japanese company aims to recreate their success with other sagas.
Capcom has gone as far as to ask players for their input on the company’s different licenses through a survey called Capcom Super Elections. This survey includes questions about what sagas players would like to see with a sequel or spin-off, not just remakes or remasters.
Among the licensing options available for feedback are Eyes, Onimusha, Dead Rising, Mega Man, Dino Crisis, Resident Evil, and Monster Hunter among others. This shows that the company is considering expanding beyond zombies and monster hunters. It’s clear that there’s a growing demand for new installments or remakes of classic Capcom titles.
While these surveys don’t necessarily guarantee the revival of any of these licenses, it’s evident that Capcom’s future involves a wide range of options beyond their current offerings. Fans are hoping for a new Dino Crisis or even a remake of the original. Additionally, there’s a request for a new Mega Man game, despite the latest installment being only six years old.
It’s exciting to see Capcom considering these possibilities and hopefully, they’ll turn these suggestions into new releases or remakes in the future.
