Capcom Wants to Revive Old IPs

Following immense success of DMC 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom plans to bring back more classic franchises.

Recent years have been exceptionally great to Japanese video game developer/publisher company Capcom with release of AAA-games like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, according to financial earnings official report.

For past couple of years, they are making a sort of comeback to scene with several of their old series revival and after having a series of success, Capcom plans on working towards reviving more of their dormant IPs and more remakes.

Capcom has sold over 4.2 million copies of RE2 Remake by March 2019 and that number has most likely has increased. DMC5 on the other hand, shipped 2.1 million copies and thus, successfully reestablished the series among fans.

Reception for classic remake of Resident Evil 2 was so good at E3 2018 that they expressed interest of doing more remakes even before release. In fact, director Kazunori Kadoi hints at a remake of Resident Evil HD Remaster version.

Last year, they released Monster Hunter: World from their popular action role-playing game series that did exceptionally well on PC platform. It largely contributed to overall sales figure and lead to massive expansion titled Iceborne.

Although there are no words on which IP they would love to work on, re-release of Onimusha: Warlords earlier in 2018 clearly indicates that Capcom is definitely open to go far and beyond on their back catalog collection.

Since a large sum of revenue came from digital downloads, some focus will shift to revive more of their legacy collections. Providing extensive support to existing games is also a priority as they helped the company get back on track after long.

For way too long, fans are eagerly waiting to have a revival of action-adventure survival horror series Dino Crisis among other ones. Going after cult classic action RPG hack and slash title Dragon's Dogma could be a good idea for starters.

Currently they have no major releases scheduled for next year so far, except for Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection that was announced a few months back to launch for current-gen gaming platforms on January 2020.

Capcom most certainly is working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and also confirmed development of Resident Evil 8 following release of Resident Evil 7 but which one among these two titles will come out sooner is yet to be seen.

Capcom May Have Teased Devil May Cry 6

During a recent panel at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, Capcom may have secretly teased Devil May Cry 6.

According to recent financial earnings report, Capcom made double profits in first quarter of 2019, major credit for that goes to action-adventure hack and slash game Devil May Cry 5 and survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake.

On a recent behind-closed-doors event at 2019 Anime Festival Orlando, official announcement regarding Devil May Cry series was made by DMC5 voice actors that may eventually turn out to be a first reveal for Devil May Cry 6.

Attending a recent panel, voice actor Reuben Langdon who plays Dante asks everyone present to put their phones away before revealing an exclusive footage from Capcom to audience nearing the end of their conversation (45: 12).

It was something related to DMC franchise that is planned to be officially revealed very soon but Langdon was given permission by publisher to unveil an early peak for attendees of their panel before they stopped filming it.

Afterwards, it was posted by Daniel Southworth on his Facebook page, who played role of Vergil in Devil May Cry 5.

Turns out, whatever they showed were cut off before at that point and everyone there may be under a non-disclosure agreement, which will not allow them to leak any major secret without facing some legal consequences from Capcom.

Considering DMC5 marks a long-awaited return to a beloved action series that sold over 2 million copies within first two weeks and has been out for six months already, Capcom teasing a potential sequel right now makes all kind of sense.

RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

Also given that the game will not be receiving any more DLCs following release of its last update Bloody Palace, possibilities for a Devil May Cry 6 announcement or something new related to DMC series would not seem out of place.

Capcom would most likely to keep current momentum the franchise have picked up this year by returning after a while and we might expect to get some exciting news regarding a follow-up sequel at Gamescom 2019 next week.

Capcom Profits Doubled Due to Digital Downloads

Capcom profits increased by 50% this year, thanks to digital downloads of "highly profitable" titles catalog.

Japanese video game developer/publisher company Capcom already have two of their biggest releases earlier this year; Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, both of which performed commercially and critically very well.

Also, their year-on-year sales report suggests that their numbers have improved and saw 50% increase this year, mostly because of digital downloads revenue of their "highly profitable" catalog of popular games on all platforms.

According to their latest financial earnings report, Capcom made record profit first quarter of 2019. Apparently, digital downloads for titles that saw multi-platform release since 2017 has helped break in these impressive numbers.

Their approach to restructuring eSports events in past few years through Capcom Media Ventures has helped grow communities of fighting game and helped Street Fighter V garnering huge fan-support to grow over time.

RELATED: Monster Hunter: World Becomes Capcom's Best-Selling Game Ever

Capcom is doing pretty good throughout 2018 and 2019, releasing long-anticipated sequels of fan-favorite franchise like Devil May Cry and Resident Evil that has contributed to considerable amount of shipping units worldwide.

Also, Monster Hunter: World added more to their overall sales figure and the numbers were especially well on PC platform. Major success of MHW has led to upcoming massive expansion pack Iceborne to arrive very soon as well.

RELATED: Devil May Cry Animated Series Confirmed

Performance of both Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection alongside Resident Evil 7 was good enough to add. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for Nintendo Switch has seen good sales number in and outside of Japan.

Of course, they have no plans to slow down with DMC 5, MHW and RE2Make anytime soon and these crown-jewels of Capcom are likely to get a cross-platform release when PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett will finally hit the stores in 2020.

RELATED: Monster Hunter Movie First Look Revealed

There were never any doubts about increasing fame of these franchise as a new Resident Evil movie reboot is currently in development after its past series has earned over $1 billion while Devil May Cry animated series is in works for Netflix.

A live-action Monster Hunter movie is already in production and looking forward to set up a franchise as well. Capcom is well aware of market appeal of these titles and is likely to produce more installments in upcoming years.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Video Games of 2019

New Year looks promising for gaming fans and we are here with our top 10 most anticipated video games of 2019 that are going to blow everyone away.

Along with numerous bumps in the road, 2018 went somewhat well in terms of video games released throughout the year mostly because of wonderful games like God of War (2018), Marvel's Spider-Man, Monster Hunter: World and Red Dead Redemption 2.

We had few unfortunate stinkers like Fallout 76 and Metal Gear Survive but despite all that, 2019 is looking very promising with all the new and remake titles headed to launch on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One all year long.

01. Resident Evil 2 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Of course this one will be at the top. Fans have been waiting like crazy for this anticipated remake of the ageless survivor horror classic for the last few years and even though this is a reiteration of the original Resident Evil 2, people are still excited as hell!

Rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield finds them amidst a zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and tries to fight their way out. Developer/publisher Capcom went back to the root of horror with RE2Make using their revolutionary RE Engine.

02. Anthem

02. Anthem (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although developer BioWare was not very successful in satisfying the fans with their last game Mass Effect: Andromeda, players are still willing to give them a chance with this one and admit it or not, it might actually course correct its way where Destiny 2 has failed.

This online multiplayer shooter avoids the typical norms of an open world environment and regardless of what some may think, it could really become a blockbuster hit. An Open Beta is currently scheduled for early February that you should take part in to see what they are offering.

kingdom hearts 3 playstation 4 xbox one
03. Kingdom Hearts III

03. Kingdom Hearts III (PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Even though it basically is the twelfth installment from Kingdom Hearts series, it is the latest main entry coming on consoles from developer/publisher Square Enix, fourteen years after the release of Kingdom Hearts II as a worthy successor.

Series protagonist Sora is returning with his friends Donald Duck, Goofy, King Mickey and Riku to prevent the second Keyblade War. Popular Disney and Pixar characters will crossover during the journey alongside some familiar faces from Final Fantasy franchise.

04. Crackdown 3 (PC, Xbox One)
Okay, if Microsoft Studios delays the game for some reason this year again, we are officially not interested in it anymore. Because, the title was all set to launch in 2016 which is then got pushed to next year and the next after it settled for February 2019.

Despite all the skepticism it has given us, we still believe that the game can be one of the most successful title of the year 2019 if it can manage to live up to the promises it made to fans. The sort of in-game destructive mechanism it is offering is essential for an addictive multiplayer mode.

sekiro shadows die twice pc playstation 4 xbox one
05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

05. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
In past, developer From Software has worked on games like Bloodborne and Dark Souls, which should give you an idea of the quality for their upcoming action-adventure title Sekiro and if you have seen any in-game footage so far, you know that we are not exaggerating.

However, the studio has no intention of making it anything like their past games at all. The game follows the chronicles of a fallen shinobi with a prosthetic arm who took it upon himself to go after a samurai for attacking him and kidnapping his lord.

06. Devil May Cry 5

06. Devil May Cry 5 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After a long departure following the commercial failure of DmC: Devil May Cry in 2013, developer/publisher Capcom brings back the action-adventure hack and slash game series with Devil May Cry 5 that is currently aiming at March 2019 release.

Both Dante and Nero are returning as playable characters in DMC5, which is set after the second game of the franchise. Aside from the signature combat system and photo-realistic graphics style, the game introduces The Void mode for extensive training.

star wars jedi fallen order pc playstation 4 xbox one
07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

07. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
After the debacle of Star Wars Battlefront II, fans are not trusting Electronic Arts or EA DICE with the franchise anymore but with Respawn Entertainment on the development wheel, we have some hope that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will actually be good.

The game follows the narrative of a Padawan survived the Jedi purge after the events of Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. The title is going to focus on an action-adventure gameplay from third-person perspective and we may get an exclusive reveal before E3 2019 as well.

days gone playstation 4
08. Days Gone

08. Days Gone (PlayStation 4)
Zombie apocalypse is quite a cliché in the world of video game now that except for a few established franchises, not everyone is making it exciting anymore but developer Bend Studio showed enough promise with their upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone that we were hooked.

The game took a different approach with the horde and making them fast runners like the ones from 28 Days Later but calling them "Freakers". Players will enter this journey of survival horror by assuming the role of bounty hunter Deacon St. John.

the division 2 pc playstation 4 xbox one
09. The Division 2

09. The Division 2 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
Although the original game died down after a time by losing players for not having engaging endgame content and due to lack of updates, developer Massive Entertainment assures that they will not repeat the mistake with the anticipated sequel that is offering Year One DLC for free.

The series arguably has one of the best core gameplay that can outshine many other AAA titles but coming up with a satisfying endgame experience is also crucial to its success. A better progressing system can keep the upcoming online action RPG alive in the long-run.

mortal kombat 11 nintendo switch pc playstation 4 xbox one
10. Mortal Kombat 11

10. Mortal Kombat 11 (Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One)
For long, game director Ed Boon has been teasing the fans of Mortal Kombat series on the next release but each time they backed out of revealing it. Finally, developer NetherRealm Studios dropped an announcement trailer of MK11 during The Game Awards 2018.

The long-awaited game is going to release more details this month in a "Community Reveal" and will return in its gory glory within next four months with a possibility of introducing the Multiverse. The iconic brawler looks better and badass than ever.

To our deepest regrets, some of the top-notch game everyone has been looking for has not made it to the list because they do not have a definitive year of release officially announced yet, namely Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding and The Last of Us Part II.

Depending on your taste and viewpoint, you may have a completely different list in mind and we believe that is perfectly normal, because so many titles have been keeping the fans hyped up for 2019 and it is too damn hard to pass most of them from including into the list.

The newest release from developer/publisher Capcom's celebrated Devil May Cry franchise and upcoming action-adventure hack and slash game Devil May Cry 5 was revealed to the world during the E3 2018 press conference.

We saw a new trailer at Gamescom 2018 that showcased pivotal gameplay footage and announced March 8, 2019 to be the release date for it to launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Today at Tokyo Game Show 2018, another trailer dropped with new details.

The newly released TGS 2018 trailer for DMC5 heavily focuses on series protagonist Dante and captures his characteristic devil may care attitude.

Although Dante was featured in previous videos of DMC5, he was mostly overshadowed by Nero. However, the paranomal investigator is back again as he has taken a new job that requires his unique skill of hacking and slashing demon hordes.

His regular arsenal of weapons including the sword Rebellion with and handgun pair Ebony and Ivory gets a new companion; a stylish motorcycle that he either rides into battle or splits into two to slash through a mob of evil spirits if he needs to.

In the last trailer, we got a few scenes of action where we witnessed the destructive capabilities of Nero’s "Devil Breakers" prosthetic arm which will spice up the fun for combat. There are apparently eight of these weapons and a recent addition of them is a Mega Man-inspired Mega Buster.

This brand-new weapon inspired by Capcom's fan-favorite blue bomber and comes with the Deluxe Edition of DMC5. This version will also include 4 exclusive Devil Breakers, 12 classic battle themes, Dante's upgraded motorcycle weapon for and more.

At one point of the clip, Dante's old business associates Lady and Trish showed up to haul him back into the fight. Also, the game hinted of introducing three vigilante devil hunters and we get to meet "V", the newest playable character after the main leads.

Nero's engineer friend Nico then gets to meet Dante and introduces herself as the granddaughter of Nell Goldstein as he looks at her for a moment. His special power of Devil Trigger transformation is displayed during the gameplay as well.

We have no details on the new character "V" yet despite his short presence time in the video but hopefully, Capcom will officially release more info on him before the game finally releases on March 8 of 2019.

Apparently, Devil May Cry 5 is building a bridge between generations of characters by bringing them all together to fight for same cause and that's just great. Nero was doing pretty well on his own but then probably something went out of control and he had to call his uncle to lend a hand.

The video opens up with Nero dialing a number from a phone booth while saying to Nico that she is up and his associate drives their transportation trailer near him. As they were driving to go for demon hunting, he tells her not to try to kill them and jumps into a mess once reached.

According to Capcom, Nero has a total of eight Devil Breakers and they are up for releasing electric charge to powerful shockwaves or even grapple enemies from far. We also witness a brief confrontation of him against a giant scissor wielding boss at one point of the trailer. Nearing the end of the clip, popular series protagonist Dante makes his spectacular entrance in a motorbike that he uses as a new weapon at his disposal by splitting it into half and slice through his enemies.

Devil May Cry 5 looks very promising from the very first trailer and fans are now eagerly waiting for the game to come out next year on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The series began its journey in 2001 as an original title for PlayStation 2 and then in 2008, a reboot came as DmC: Devil May Cry. The newest installment is a successor to that game and Nero takes the lead from Dante as series main to save humanity.
