Capcom Lost and Found – Publisher Loses Money and Gets Westernitus

With the recent news that Capcom underperformed and has ended up cancelling numerous in-development titles, many have begun to wonder about the fate of the once-loved company. As Capcom tries to right their ship before it gets worse, the Daily Reaction crew of Seb and Dan discuss what they can do to get themselves out of the position they have put themselves in. (Capcom, Monster Hunter, PS3, PS4, Resident Evil 6, Wii, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Capcom should just start over.
Foolsjoker  +   609d ago
A reboot would be nice. Just bring back the games the way there were designed - Mega Man in 2D, and Resident Evil with zombies.
Nitrowolf2  +   609d ago
Not sure how I would feel it Capcom Rebooted.

Kind of hard to do that when all the people who made those games have left the company.
rezzah  +   609d ago
They need to make new IPs.

Oh and new bring out Gold editions.

It's lame but their newest game Dragon's Dogma is about to have it's gold edition released too.

They're in a mess
They should reboot every single franshise they have, Especially Resident Evil.

Capcom forgot what made them great and forgot who they are.
Ingram  +   608d ago
They also forgot who we are, same as Squeenix

It's definitely a slippery slope. I hate how little Japanese identify shines through Capcom's games anymore. Way too main stream.

Spoken like a true hipster!

It's not hipsterism, it's pretty fair. If games can reflect their culture we get more variety. And no one can argue against variety.
TrendyGamers  +   609d ago
They need to bring Monster Hunter to the Vita.
Foolsjoker  +   609d ago
Would help sales, but the PS4 would be amazing.

Megaman is rolling in his grave.

There is one game that Capcom done beautifully this gen, the game was "Dragon Dogma". I hope they continue the franchise and improve upon it.

RE and DMC is boring.
Myst  +   609d ago
Agreed Dragon's Dogma was and still a rather nice game still need to play Dark Arisen.
Skate-AK  +   609d ago
More like conitus.
XXXL  +   608d ago
More quick time events and on disc DLC! Good riddance crapcom
Knushwood Butt  +   608d ago
I thought RE5 was developed in house.

That tanked too.
Max-Zorin  +   608d ago
That's what happens when you do reboots for certain games when there was nothing wrong with them, hide characters and other content on the disc and then try to claim technical issues after getting exposed, Kill off your mascot and troll your fans with him on certain games, etc.

I am glad that they are returning development back to Japan. The reality is that they where outsourcing their big games to shit Western developers. If they had outsourced those games to big time, good western developers it would have been great. Now that they are returning to in-house focused games maybe we can actually get some quality games.

Capcom needs to innovate, bring mega man back, do a next gen M.H, do next gen breath of fire,
They need to stop making revivisions of games with two added character each revision( ssf4 ultra addition) make a definitive version and update with balance changes.

They need to listen to their fans, whats the point of having fans if you dont listen to their input. Although i liked dmc, alot of people didnt so maybe out sourcing is not their forte.
Tales RPG addict  +   608d ago
HEY CAPCOM get your Head out of your ASS.
Stop fucking up RE, and Innovate it while also returning the series to it's Roots.

Also Ressurect "BREATH OF FIRE" and uncancel all your MEGAMAN games you said were going to come out.

While your at it give us the version of "Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3" with most of the characters from Marvel Vs. Capcom 2.

LASTLY stop saying your games won't have on disc DLC only to find out that when a guy hacks the game and exposes the truth on the Internet the Whole World goes ENRAGED. Yes I'm talkin about "Street Fighter X Tekken" & RE6.

They need to get rid of Christian Svensson.
Also I think Capcom's mode of DLC (first day or content on the disc) will only make their financial situation worse. Seriously, I think that's the reason why Street Fighter X Tekken didn't sell as much they expected. Bad PR is not good PR Capcom.
