On average, Capcom produces some darn good video games, but they don't always sell as well as the company would like. It happens to everyone in this business eventually, but Capcom isn't one to shrug its shoulders and say "Oh well," when a quality game fails to make a dramatic splash. Some games you missed the first time around are coming back, while other games that were mega smash hits are returning for an encore as downloadable titles on the Sony PlayStation Network. The first title out of the gate in this renewed effort is Capcom Classics Remixed for the PlayStation Portable which releases Thursday in North America, while the official PlayStation blog has news on the rest.
- Capcom Classics Collection Remixed (UMD Legacy)
- Mega Man Powered Up (UMD Legacy)
- Dino Crisis (PlayStation Legacy)
- Power Stone Collection (UMD Legacy)
- Mega Man Maverick Hunter X (UMD Legacy)
- Resident Evil 2 (PlayStation Legacy)
- Darkstalkers (UMD Legacy)
- Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max (UMD Legacy)
- Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (PlayStation Legacy)
- Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded (UMD Legacy)
This is but the first wave, it seems, as more titles will be announced later. Now, I have an assignment for you. Do you see the two Mega Man titles on that list? You're going to buy them when they are released on PSN and you're going to enjoy them. You're going to tell your friends and family to do the same. It's time to show Capcom that Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X are fantastic Mega Man experiences that can generate profit. Then maybe, just maybe, the company will finally get going on Mega Man 2: Powered Up and Maverick Hunter X 2.
