Capcom...its time to admit you made a HUGE MISTAKE w/ Megaman

Mighty No. 9's Kickstarter was a huge success, and rightfully so! But what this also shows, is that gamers have an immense desire for more Megaman-like, and why do you believe that is? Well, Capcom has failed gamers, and Megaman. And its time that they admit their mistakes and make a change. But lets go over the latest moves on Capcom's part, where they have completely ignored gamer input for Megaman.

Mighty No 9 actually gets me more worried for Megaman because if(When) Mighty No 9 succeeds Capcom will likely respond with a rush job Megaman game. Just so that they can bleed out your wallet with yet another huge disappointment.

The Kickstarter numbers do appear to show that Capcom are pretty big idiots for not releasing new Mega Man content.

BUT, upon closer inspection, you can see that only 67,000 people donated to the Kickstarter. So while $4 mill is quite impressive, a retail release that only sold 67,000 copies would be a huge disappointment.

So how could you accurately translate Kickstarter numbers to a game that releases on its own at retail or digitally? You can't. We'll never know how much a Mega Man game that looks exactly like Mighty No. 9 would've sold

Sadist33712d ago

Um, maybe people who didn't contribute to kick starter will buy it. Just because 67,000 people contributed doesn't mean others won't purchase the game. I didn't contribute, and I'll get the game when it comes out. A lot of us adults don't have time to go on the internet and fund projects on kick starter. We have mortgages, children, jobs, social lives...doesn't mean we won't purchase a good game. We just don't fund projects.

I agree, 4mil seems a lot but when some people donated over $100 dollars, it's easy to see how it got so much money. On the other hand, if Capcom release a MM game of PSN/XBLA for $10 and 67000 people buy it, that's only like $670,000. Really not enough for capcom to invest in another MM game considering the Mighty no 9 needed $900,000 to even start -_-

TheGrimReaper00113712d ago

Some donated over $100
If we can take the kickstarter's word, then i think about 4 people paid 10.000 for a dinner with the creator of megaman!
That being said, i think it's a start for a new franchise and a new company
They already name themselves "Comcept"
I really curious to see where this goes
I'll def buy it

thejigisup3712d ago

Started from the bottom now we're here... I would really like to see what capcom has to say about this. And cap has a tin of money. 4 mil aint shit, ntm what happened to doing/making things bc they are fun. I understand that people generally go into business to make money but sometimes there are things with more than making a simple buck if ooh a rehash of the same game over and over street fighter 4..... dont get me wrong I live the sf franchise and own most of the games but what is the real reason mm hadn't seen proper love

"Capcom...its time to admit you made a HUGE MISTAKE w/ Megaman" lol there more likely to sue before the ever admit making mistakes

Monster Hunter World 2! Or whatever they decide to call it. Oh, it's going to be massive!

Cacabunga34d ago

Surely something MH related.. now I’m only hoping it’s not a mobile version

CantThinkOfAUsername34d ago

Seems way too far of a target. Their best selling game ever is Monster Hunter World (last reported number in August 2023 is 19 million).

GhostScholar34d ago

I wish I could get into monster hunter. I played world, and enjoyed it at first but I just don’t thjnk the loop of killing the same monsters over and over to upgrade gear fun. If there was more story maybe, but I guess it’s just not for me. Not saying it isn’t good though just not for me.

Profchaos34d ago

Re9 maybe they did say a new re engine had been in development still it's probably to soon

LabRat34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

Yeah I doubt it. RE8 only sold around 8 million, which is still good, but I would not expect the 9th to suddenly to skyrocket to 45 million. Plus it is extremely unlikely one will even come out before then.

Kurisu34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

45 million is a lot, and March isn't that far away for something that's unannounced.

EDIT: "The company has sold, in the first half of the fiscal year, 22.6 million units of its video games, but that's only half of its annual target of 45 million units."

^ Ah, that makes sense! I thought that was bloody unrealistic lol

notachance34d ago

also the article stated that the company included games without release date in the unannounced category, so it’s most likely dragon’s dogma 2 instead of a mystery game. March 2024 is only 5 months left afterall..

Plague-Doctor2734d ago (Edited 34d ago )

I doubt theyre expecting DD2 to sell 10+ million copies. The only franchise they could reasonably expect to help make up the 22 million units theyre hoping for in the next 5 months is Monster Hunter. It took 11 years, an expansion, re-releases, and large price drops for DD1 to hit 7 million sold

Abriael34d ago

No, the article states that it *rarely* happens in corporate speech. It's a possibility, but unlikely.

notachance34d ago

idk, it’s a tight window between now and March for an unannounced title to get 10mil+ sales. If we’re excluding DD2 then the most likely series to get a surprise announcement is Monster Hunter especially with the 20th anniversary coming up on March, though I think it’s a bit of a disservice to the series to only get a couple months of marketing.

Megaman Battle Network 7 :D

Dandalandan11734d ago

A new Dino Crisis game would be awesome

ChiefofLoliPolice34d ago

My god yes. Hell is even settle for a remake of the first two.

Dandalandan11734d ago

Ikr? Just imagine how it's going to look with the RE Engine!

Agent7534d ago

Resident Evil is painfully stuck in the dark ages. Another Dino Crisis? That was a Resident Evil clone. Can’t see Powerstone 3 anytime soon. There isn’t anything else I’d like to see from CAPCOM as in a sequel. CAPCOM are scared of new IPs, which is why it churns out endless Resident Evil games.

GotGame81834d ago

The RE remakes were fantastic! Far from the "dark ages". I suggest you play the OG Resident Evil, and revisit your comment. The remakes all scored very well!

Plague-Doctor2734d ago

Street Fighter 6 came out 4 months ago. A new Monster Hunter is in the works. A new Dragons Dogma is in the works. As far as new IP they just released Exoprimal and have Path of the Goddess on the way. RE is also doing more than fine
