Game news After Street Fighter and Resident Evil, Capcom could bring back two new cult licenses and it’s a big YES
Published on 07/10/2023 at 10:30
Along with Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter 6, 2023 is a big year for Capcom. However, some licenses from the Japanese publisher have remained in the closet for years. During a conference with investors, the company took the opportunity to open the door to the return of these franchises, which delighted the players.
During the Game Awards 2023 ceremony, there is a good chance that Capcom will win the publisher of the year award. It’s simple, with a Metacritic score of 93 and 92 respectively for Resident Evil 4 (2023) and Street Fighter 6, the company released two must-have games of the year. However, we do not yet know what the firm has in store for the future, if not Dragon’s Dogma 2, Exoprimal or Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess. It was therefore during a question-and-answer session with its investors that Capcom mentioned the existence of old licenses that had remained in the closet.
During the conference, an investor asked a very specific question regarding Monster Hunter, Toraware No Palm, Sengoku Basara and especially Onimusha. And the good news is that Capcom is not closing the door on their return:
We are leading discussions on the future expansion of these titles so that they can be enjoyed by a wide audience. – Capcom
If the answer is encouraging, it is nonetheless vague and it is not known if it applies to one of the licenses mentioned or all. In the case of Monster Hunter, it is obvious that new episodes are planned in the future, as the franchise is Capcom’s goose. And then, as for Onimusha, this name comes up regularly, which suggests a potential comeback. On the other hand, Sengoku Basara, a sort of Dynasty Warrior among samurai, and Toraware No Palm, a visual novel from 2019, are more unexpected titles whose return would be surprising. However, in the licenses mentioned, there is one that stands out more than the others.

Soon a return of Mega Man?
Also during this session, an investor asked about the Mega Man saga. And there, the firm was more talkative than expected:
Along with Mega Man 11, the latest installment in the franchise, Mega Man is one of Capcom’s historic intellectual properties that is much loved by fans, and that’s why we want to be careful how we develop the series. . We are considering how to approach the production of new entries in the series, which requires many factors, including the development of a solid concept, ideas and gameplay, etc. – Capcom
This kind of answer therefore suggests that Mega Man will be entitled to new games in the future., but that Capcom is looking for a way to bring it back under good conditions. This is even assured since an investor asked a specific question regarding the franchise’s upcoming ports and game collections. Representatives of the firm replied: “We are thinking about our approach to ports of old titles, which includes the resolution of technical problems”. With the recent hit Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection quickly slated for 1 million sales, it’s a safe bet that more Mega Man compilations are planned for the future.
