Capcom, which is short for "Capsule Computer" is the worst video game company ever. They make lots of acclaimed game series, but unlike other companies, they haven't made a console, instead preferring to make games for all sorts of different systems. However, like other companies, they made some very special arcade games that many people love and wish were still there. They also made some surprisingly good licensed games for NES back in the day. They also really hate the Art of Fighting game for the reason that one of their characters look
Formerly one of the most beloved game companies ever, but they cancelled Mega Man Legends 3 in mid-2011, and have only gotten worse since.
Also, it can be debated for hours whether it's pronounced Capcum (since that's how "computer" is pronounced, and how it was pronounced in Capcom Vs. SNK 2), or Capcom (the more popular pronounciation that was also used in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2).
Games Made By Capcom
Along with Konami and Sega, Capcom had some licensed titles that were considered by many people to be some of the best developed:
There were other licensed games including some based off Japanese properties but in most cases, Capcom just published them.
The first Disney game that Capcom released was Mickey Mousecapade, but it was actually developed by Hudson Soft. The later games, however, were made by them:
In 1994, Capcom earned the rights to use Marvel characters in a few fighting games. Thus, X-Men: Children of the Atom was born. It featured members of the X-Men as they basically decided to use Battle Royale in order to determine who should go on to face Magneto. The game was a success, and as an in-game joke, Capcom threw in Akuma from Street Fighter II as a hidden character. The inevitable happened and voila; X-Men Vs. Street Fighter was born. You could choose characters from the X-Men game, as well as Ryu, Ken Masters, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, Zangief, M. Bison, Charlie, Akuma and Cammy from Street Fighter II/Alpha. When Capcom also went on to make Marvel Super Heroes, which added some more Marvel characters alongside the X-Men, they followed up with Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. The game kept Wolverine, Cyclops and most of the Street Fighters (adding Dan Hibiki and Sakura while removing Cammy), and added Spider-Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, and others. Next, Capcom took it one step further with Marvel Vs. Capcom, which took out a few Marvel characters (and most of the Street Fighter characters, leaving Ryu, Ken (sort of), Chun-Li, Zangief and Akuma (sort of)), but on the other hand, added Venom and War Machine, as well as adding a few Capcom characters from other games, such as Mega Man, Morrigan Aensland, Strider Hiryu, Roll and Captain Commando. Finally, the last (and arguably greatest) installment arrived in 2000 with Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, featuring just about everyone from the previous games (excluding the palette-swap characters), added characters like Dr. Doom, Jill Valentine, Tron Bonne, Anakaris, Cable and Iron Man, added some new gameplay features and was just plain awesome.
Capcom also did a few more crossovers, such as a 4-game (plus some card-battling games) crossover with SNK, featuring characters from Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, The King of Fighters, The Last Blade, and Samurai Shodown, a strategy RPG with Namco (which tends to feature lots of the more obscure characters from both companies), a proper fighting collab called Street Fighter X Tekken (or Tekken X Street Fighter for Namco's case), and a crossover against various Tatsunoko properties in which was was only on the Nintendo Wii only and initially for Japan only. However, a remake called Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, which loses one character (Hakushon Daimao) but adds five new ones (Tekkaman Blade, Yatterman-2, Joe the Condor, Frank West, and Zero) was released worldwide in 2010, so yeah. Mega Man would've been in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but Keiji Inafune was waiting for Sakurai to approach him, while Sakurai was waiting for Inafune to come over and ask if Megaman could be in the game. Oh the
