HD Remasters To Be Key Business Activities for Capcom; New Engine Will Shorten Development Times

Capcom apparently plans to keep making HD remasters in the foreseeable future. They expect the new engine to reduce development times, too.

Enough with these remasters, for god's sake!

Transistor1188d ago

Remasters are fine. They only take a few people and keep dry spells to a minimum.

They just need to remaster the right games and give them the proper attention and care.

I don't give a flying rat's ass! Just hurry the hell up with a MARVEL vs. CAPCOM Ultra Remastered 4K HD Ultimate Hyper Plus addition so I can empty my walllllet pleeeeeeaaaase....

"I'm broke because the gaming companies force me to buy every single remastered that is out"
Said no one ever.

Big_Game_Hunters1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

@ heavy. you are right, the correct statement is "i'm rich because gaming companies put out remasters but almost no GOOD new games so i don't spend 60$ on games that came out 2-5 years ago."

mikeslemonade1188d ago

Blame mobile, tablet, and F2P games. These publishers have to think extra hard to make a quick buck like the mobile, tablet, and F2P games.

Army_of_Darkness1188d ago

Too much people bought the resident evil remastered, so now... it got to Capcom's head....**smh**

SharnOfTheDEAD1188d ago

Does this mean I'll finally get my Onimusha HD trilogy?

badz1491188d ago

if they could make a new Onimusha, I would be so happy!

Old_Prodigy1188d ago

They're really not though, humans don't live forever. I'd rather they spend their time making as many new games as possible rather than wasting it upgrading graphics and what not, I can do that on my own if I wanted. It's times like these that really make me hate, no... dislike some console gamers, and if you're a PC gamer you should really be ashamed. The only remasters That I somewhat condone are exclusives, and that's because I'd like new adopters of whatever brand, be it Microsoft, Nintendo, or Sony to be able to experience past games from the 7th generation of consoles exclusive lineups without having to purchase one. Don't get me wrong, honestly I'd still be fine if they weren't made at all. We wouldn't have this problem if the consoles were backwards compatible (not sure if Wii U is backwards compatible.)

deadpoolio3161188d ago

There isnt going to be a damn Ultra Marvel vs Capcom damn...THEY DONT HAVE THE LICENSE ANYMORE, they can't patch port or do anything with Marvel vs Capcom anymore

Blurmobjet1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )


But to focus on remasters, tho...

@Maddens Raiders

That will never happen. Capcom has lost the rights to Marvel in every way shape and form ad infinitum.

You can't even redownload the content for the games they released previously they removed it from the store entirely. Any game Capcom made that has anything to do with Marvel has been pulled. This was a really big deal when it happened about a year ago. It wasn't just capcom that got hit either anyone making a game about a Marvel character that wasn't under the Disney name was pulled from shelves. The ones people noticed the most were MVC3 Ultimate MVC3, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1&2 and Deadpool though there were plenty more.

I guess what I am saying is unfortunately you can consider the Marvel Vs Capcom series finished there will never be another entry in the series ><

Bimkoblerutso1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

What new games are you people referring to that makes you think Capcom is NOT taking away valuable resources to do these remasters? Their output of new games this generation has been absolutely terrible.

I love a good remaster as much as the next guy, but this generation has made it very clear that these devs are going WAY overboard to the point that it's affecting their actual new releases.

HRoach6161187d ago

Well said. My thoughts exactly. If you don't like them don't buy them. Clearly enough people like them to warrant making them.

showtimefolks1187d ago

Onimusha please

And to people who don't like remasters. Please stop complaining, there are enough new games to buy so no one is forcing you to buy the remasters

Please stop complaining

darthv721187d ago

"keep dry spells to a minimum" well i live in California and we are in one serious drought so....

vickers5001187d ago

I actually like remasters, so this news would be pretty exciting for me... if Capcom had anything good they could remaster, but honestly, the only thing I can remember enjoying from them is Resident Evil 5, and even then, I played that game so much I dont think I'd want to play it again.

Maddens Raiders1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

Thank you @deadpoolio316 and @ShiranaiJittai -

I had to go back and do some research. I was working like a mad man last year and wasn't paying enough attention to news THAT big. Jeez.. wow you guys are right... it doesn't look good at all and the series looks to be all but dead now that Disney has it's evil tentacles in it. Uggghhhh -- thanks for the enlightenment though guys..

For once I'd like to see somebody really explain how remasters effect them personally

Stop crying about things you can easily ignore

OldDude1187d ago

About a month ago a rogue remaster came into my neighborhood and started shooting and looting. Several people were wounded, even killed. When it burst through my front door it took 3 shots from my S&W .44 Mag to put it down, almost like it was amped up on something. It was a horrible experience and sometimes late at night I can still hear the screaming.

comebackkid98911188d ago

My megaman tattoo just looked at the floor, another japanese dev down the drain.

NuggetsOfGod1188d ago

What else are console gamers to do within backwards compatibility and the habit of dropping the soap for game companies?

paul-p19881188d ago

This backward compatibility argument used by PC Gamers really grates on me. I can't play games made for Windows 95 (all on CDs/DVDs) on my old XP laptop, let alone my Windows 7 one, as the installers just refuse to open even if I try to run them in compatibility-mode as they are incompatible, so how does PC have unlimited backwards compatibility without having multiple OS's installed?!

The only way I've ever managed to get them to work is installing them on Linux Ubuntu through Wine, but games made by Windows, for Windows, don't work on new

Kumomeme1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

while it right on some way that too many remaster are not necessary good,but still there are lot of game out there that deserve redone of fresh experience of improved features such as tweaked gameplay,graphics,resolution and fps which is 'the' original game could'n got during they era

come one capcom.... dragon's dogma dark arisen remaster and port it to pc...the game is one of the game suffer of techincal aspect from last gen weak hardware...give it proper treatment of higher resolution and fps capcom!!

darren_poolies1188d ago

As long as they remaster Onimusha and Dino Crisis, this is okay with me.

garrettbobbyferguson1188d ago

Translation: Expect to never see a new game from us ever again.

Kidmyst1187d ago

I wouln't mind a Remaster collection of the Onimusha games. Just sayin

TXIDarkAvenger1187d ago

Disagree if were talking Capcom.

ThunderPulse1187d ago

Unless its a Monster Hunter for PS4.

N0TaB0T1187d ago

As long as it isn't a broken mess (BULLY: Scholarship Edition) then I have no problem.

magiciandude1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

I've called it when Tomb Raider DE was announced that the market will get flooded with remasters, and look at it now, publishers are pumping them out game after game. This is officially Generation 7.1. The real Generation 8 will be many, many years away at the very least...

Capcom has a lot of great games that it can be Remastered or HD remade and it also has a number of really good games coming up that I am looking forward to like Deep Down and Street Fighter V. I think Capcom may be coming back into the scene as a big company again and I am glad to see them able to reduce their developing time as they really do take too much to release a game

Imp0ssibl31188d ago

Deep Down was first revealed along the PS4 in February 2013.

I fear for this game. It looked great, but it must have been in development hell...Hope to see it again at E3

Transistor1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Capcom at this same disclosure, mentioned Deep Down is having development problems, but is still coming along. I wouldn't expect to see it at E3.

"We're still facing a ton of challenges (laughs). For starters, there's the whole process of developing games for the newest next-generation consoles. Every solution we came up with seemed to create more problems than it solved, so it has really been one step forward, two steps back the whole way. On top of all that, we had to tune up the servers for the online management aspects. We had a really hard time trying to develop a game that combined all the elements."

bloop1188d ago

I think I was looking forward to Deep Down the most of all the games that were announced alongside the PS4. The trailer gave the impression it was going to be a big triple A RPG/action blockbuster. When they announced it was going to be F2P my anticipation hit the floor. Then they announced it was all procedurally generated and the game fell off my radar altogether.

Transistor1188d ago

I'm more interested in their development process now, moving multiple teams to bigger projects to get them done more efficiently. Remasters only take a few people, so they can get more projects done on a better cycle.

HeartlessGamer1188d ago

It depends on which games get remastered I'm still waiting for Onimusha to get remastered

Alexious1188d ago

I'd love a new Onimusha game for PC/next gen!

comebackkid98911188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

The operative word is remaster, so I don't foresee Re 2/3 getting the REmake treatment. I'd snatch God Hand in a heartbeat and a Power Stone collection, but what else do they have?

HeartlessGamer1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Dino Crisis would be a good one

Oh and Haunting Ground

ccgr1188d ago

What happened to making original games?
