From the recent Capcom Integrated Report
Source: http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/data/pdf/annual/2019/annual_2019_01.pdf

"Our initiatives are to (1) strengthen digital sales, (2) bolster our title lineup through the full-scale execution of our 60-month and 52-week maps and (3) awaken dormant intellectual properties."
(As RE2 and DMC5 count as both sides of this coin for this FY, looks like we're in for another REmake and another IP Coming back for the next FY. My guess would be likely tied to either MS or PS next-gen unveiling).


Titles Outperforming Expectations (Since this was a worry due to the numbers not lining up with the typical AAA expectations)


DMC5 Reestablished as a Series (Bolds well for more content such as DMC5:SE and/or DMC6 not taking 11 years to happen)



Looks like Capcom has really found their stride when it comes to Division 1 and the future of their brands which still have a lot of fan fervor even when they're dormant. Hopefully it won't be much longer for my new Dino Crisis game, it's been long enough already.

Bring back Breath of Fire!

They have so many awesome properties that havent gotten love in a long time. Im glad that they are finally figuring out that these can be successful.

Let me just for a moment think of a 3D Strider game with the production values of DMC.

...


Fine, all done, continue with doing not that.

It's time for Dino Crisis Remake. I tried playing the original recently and let me say it doesn't hold up.

Music to my fucking ears. It's good to see Devil May Cry get the comeback it deserves. Hopefully more Capcom IPs follow suit in the near future.

More remakes = uncertainguy.gif
They probably mean the RE remakes, which makes sense given that RE3 is next in line for a remake.

Another Lost Planet in the vein of 2 please. 2 itself was fantastic to point where it’s my favorite game from Capcom and one of my all time favorites. There was such much possibilities that I hoped they expanded in the 3 game.......but nah, that shit didn’t happen.

So how about that Ace Attorney?

It's not like it even needs to be revived, they just refused to localize a good chunk of the games and have been radio silent for a while now.

Make Dragon's Dogma 2 and turn Lost Planet into a sci fi Monster Hunter World / non-asymmetrical Evolve

Even though I'm a massive fan of JRPG's, I couldn't bring myself to play more than a few hours of the original Breath of Fire. Subplots just happened and were over and nothing felt like it had any impact. The pacing hurt it a lot and it made it hard for me to care much about doing anything.

That being said, though, I know they're pretty popular for an un-popular JRPG series so I hope the series gets brought back (hopefully fully remade) so I can give enjoying the series another chance.
