Five Capcom Games We’d Like to See Revived

Now that we’ve finally got a new Devil May Cry, there are some other other Capcom games we’d like to see revived.

After ten long years, Devil May Cry is back. Sure we’ve had the rather excellent DMC: Devil May Cry but Devil May Cry 5 reunites players with Dante and Nero and throws in Goth Adam Driver as an added bonus. So we’ve been thinking about the other titles that Capcom’s hasn’t touched in years, instead keeping them sealed in a vault miles beneath the streets of Raccoon City. Here are five Capcom games that we’d like to see given a new lease of life.

Power Stone

Power Stone was a weird but wonderful 3D fighting game, not unlike an isometric Super Smash Brothers. Released on the Dreamcast and Playstation Portable it had a cast of bizarre characters and was ridiculously entertaining, supporting up to four players. It garnered enough interest to receive a sequel but the series has been gathering dust since then. We have fond memories of playing this on the Playstation Portable and we’d love to see a fully fledged modern sequel.

Dino Crisis

Dino Crisis was never as commercially successful as the Resident Evil series but it was still a lot of fun. And seeing a T-Rex burst through a wall gave us a few sleepless nights, despite the game’s angular Playstation graphics. Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 have shown just what can be accomplished using Capcom’s RE Engine so it’s high time for this dinocentric action game to be given a first-person makeover.

Steel Battalion

Steel Battalion originally graced the Xbox and put you in charge of a huge, appealingly clunky mech which you piloted using an improbably large custom controller. The franchise was revived briefly as a Kinect title but lacking the daft (and absurdly scarce) joysticks it just wasn’t the same. Given that people will happily purchase £100 Xbox One controllers, charging a premium for a new Steel Battalion controller hardly seems like a stretch. What do you say, Capcom? Isn’t it about time you gave us another shot at robotic supremacy?

OnimushaOnimusha Warlords 1

Onimusha: Warlords hit the Playstation 2 in 2001 and was, in essence, Resident Evil uprooted and transported to Feudal Japan. Slaughtering supernatural entities with a samurai sword never got old, even when Capcom threw Jean Reno into the mix (no, we’re not making this up). The original has recently been remastered for the Playstation 4 and we’d happily step back in time for another swing of the blade.

Ghosts and Goblins

Ghosts and Goblins, Capcom’s classic platformer, was a wonderful if taxing arcade platformer, which was ported to every platform under the sun. We have fond memories of running around in a suit of armour which disappeared we were hit, leaving us clad in nothing but our pants. We also played Ghosts and Goblins and we’d happily fork out for a modern remake, one with more substance than the disappointing iOS versions of the game.
