Capcom dusts off killer franchises

New instalments of popular gaming franchises are  in the works as Capcom revitalises its portfolio.

The company has brought several cherished brands back to the High Street in the last few years, including Bionic Commando and the best-selling Street Fighter IV. Now it plans to up the ante and revive more fan favourites.

“Capcom is very proud of its multi-million selling established franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Monster Hunter,” Capcom’s European senior director of marketing Michael Pattison told MCV.

“But we’ve also got some other franchises in our locker which we’re going to re-establish on the global stage in the near future. We’re not going to rest on our laurels and even with established franchises we’re going to try new things.

“We have quite a few surprises up our sleeves as we look to bring back some much-loved brands, create new ones and innovate with our existing line-up. I believe our fans will be happy with what we’re planning.”
