    This comes from their Q&A for their fiscal year results.
    I've only grabbed the questions related to growing globally as a company.

    MHW did well in the West, so I suppose Capcom’s on to something here. Hopefully DMCV delivers on all fronts.

    Anytime I see Capcom I just think DMCV now.

    Prioritize graphics in DMCV.

    Otherwise, it'll remain a 2-3 million seller despite being multiplatform.

    ^graphics = 30 FPS.

    You got a winner.
     
  9. I love me some Mega Man classic stuff, but I want stuff that are like the X, Zero, and ZX games too, so yes.

    Hell, get Inti Creates to finish the ZX series(not sure what relationship the companies have these days).

    worst advice ever.

    Please no. We don’t need a repeat of what happened with DmC.

    60fps or bust, it’s necessary for a game series like Devil May Cry.

    This is probably not even close to their new plans but...

    Mega Man Legends remaster/remake/reboot/sequel/prequel/anything ;_;

    Not specifically for me, but my SO loves that spin off so much.

    The outrage that would manifest if DMCV was fucking 30fps.

    It would almost be worth it just to witness the chaos. Almost

    Don't know what to think about Capcom anymore. They're probably one of the pubs with the most potential but also one of those that don't really know how to use it all the time.

    DmC even sold 2.7 million despite the uproar against the MC and 30 FPS.

    Amazing graphics will do more good than harm in expanding the franchise.

    This pursuit is what got them in hot water in the first place!

    I mean, they are right that it's necessary if they want to grow, but they need to be careful to not put all of their eggs in one basket.
     
  26. a game can look great and be 60fps, also IIRC DMC4 still sold more than that.

    Also DmC is kinda... dead, you know?

    I feel like that <10% figure is greatly affected by western juggernauts like EA and Activision games, most of which don't sell particularly well in Japan. I mean, Monster Hunter World did closer to 25-30% in Japan.

    If Capcom thinks they're the next EA, then... lol.

    To ggx2ac's earlier post on this response, other than Monster Hunter, don't expect anything AAA from Capcom to hit the Nintendo Switch. Look elsewhere.

    ......You’re serious? I honestly thought that you were trolling for a moment.

    Is that number counting the Definitive Edition? Either way, Capcom clearly backpedalled from the DmC line, so I doubt that they’d attempt to have a mainline DMC game run at 30fps. Lord Itsuno knows better than that, we must have faith.

    Call of Duty and FIFA are the biggest games ever year by a massive margin and they're 60fps. So... yea.

    Capcom trying to compete with Western AAA sounds pretty disconcerting. It didn't end well when they tried this before.
    On the other hand, (And as lukewarm I am on God of War) I would be interested in an Onimusha sequel/reboot in that style.

    I'm trying to figure out what IPs they have that they could revive that has potential to be really popular for the western market and aside from DMC, I guess the top choices would probably be something like Onimusha/Strider/Dino Crisis?

    As long as they aren't making another Lost Planet I guess.

    As for Strider, didn’t he get a solid reboot not too long ago?

    They tried that. It was called DmC. It sold less than all previous entries for the longest time and took five years to reach its original goal of 2 million.

    Mega Man hasn't been a AAA effort since the SNES. Ace Attorney never has.

  46. They need to not expect that every game will do monster hunter numbers because that is a path to making a bunch of poor decisions.

    I do agree that Japanese developers should consider the WW market more though. Their own console market is limited and the mobile market is fickle and may not always get them the revenues they are getting now.

    Then they gave up and released a bunch of ports and remasters again and again ?

    Capcom Ips that could do really well in the west are:
    Dino Crisis: Dinos sell really well I mean look at the Jurassic World movie revenue and even monster hunter world main ads featured Ajanath as a selling point.
    Dragon Dogma: a highly graphically polished sequel would do really well looking at the Witcher 3 and Horizon success. Also the long time good word of mouth for the original will help a lot.
