Capcom: From Arcade to Cinema
Deriving its name from Capsule and Computer, the company is one of the earliest companies involved in the gaming industry. It began as a manufacturer and distributor of electronic games machines and has since gone to produce multi-million-selling franchises, gaming classics and even hit movies such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Devil May Cry, and Monster Hunter. It has expanded in all areas of the videogame industry and has offices in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan; Sunnyvale, California; London, England; and Hong Kong, China. Aside from publishing and developing gaming software, the firm also leases game machines, and has most recently expanded into amusement facility management with the opening of the Nickel City arcades in the USA.
Commitment to a project is the company signature hence the presence of different development studios or planning rooms which are dedicated to developing certain titles. Their development process is one that is conducive for technology sharing and expertise sharing. For instance, their consumer games research and development division is an amalgamation of subsections in charge of various game development stages. The publisher also commissions outside development studios to ensure a steady output of titles.
From Street Fighter to Dead Rising
The company's series of fighting games are among the most popular in the genre and are considered classics. The most popular of which was adapted into comic book, cartoon, and movie. Their success in the genre prompted the company to produce and develop their first entry into the survival horror genre, in the form of Resident Evil. The title enjoyed an unprecedented success selling nearly 50 million units. The success of the first release lead to the creation of an entire series and a spin off called Devil May Cry. These titles were initially only available for the PlayStation, more specifically the PS2 platform, but were soon expanded into other consoles. A move which further boosted their sales and widened their audience.
Aside from broadening their existing franchises, the company also develops several new titles for Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Among them are Lost Planet and Dead Rising. Both titles were received by the gaming population well and has spawned at least two sequels.
