Capcom is looking to bring back ‘dormant’ properties

Go on…

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was one of the many pleasant surprises unveiled over the weekend at a very eventful PlayStation Experience. The leaks tipped us off beforehand, I’ll grant you that, but still! A new Marvel! I’m amazed it’s happening, and I’m already anticipating future EVO matches.

Now, not to get your hopes up with what-if scenarios, but there’s a curious note in a press release for the game: Infinite is only the start of the company’s larger plan to cultivate its properties.

“In addition to regular major title releases each fiscal year, Capcom is currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP,” reads the release. “Beginning with Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, a return for the series following a five-year hiatus, Capcom looks to enhance its corporate value even further by utilizing its library of rich contents.”

I could see part of this plan coming about with ports, like the re-release of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on PS4 over the weekend. That could be a smart way to warm up new players to a series before its proper revival. (As an aside, please port over Asura’s Wrath.) But as far as new entries go? Goodness. I don’t even know where to start. A new Onimusha, perhaps? More Dragon’s Dogma in the West?

Let’s hear your ideas. Which IP is long overdue a new game, and why?
