Capcom surveying fans on future digital releases

Onimusha HD, new Street Fighter Alpha, Power Stone re-releases mentioned

Capcom is asking fans which titles they'd like the company to release digitally in the future via a new survey.


Posting on the Capcom-Unity blog, Capcom's senior vice president Christian Svensson emphasised that the information was intended to gauge interest, and is by no means a guarantee that mentioned titles will be released.

"We have many opinions internally and we're looking to gather some data about your buying habits and what franchises and even title types, you'd like us to make in the future," he said.

"There's no guarantees on what the outcomes will be, but I promise you, this data will be a factor in our decision making process. I'll be compiling the data in about a week (closing just after Christmas) and sharing the results internally with Japan before the end of the year."

The survey runs through Capcom's most popular franchises, past and present, and asks participants how they feel about re-releases, HD upgrades, compilations, sequels and spin-offs on current and "other" platforms.

Specifically mentioned in the survey are a new Street Fighter Alpha HD that uses Street Fighter Alpha 3 as a base and includes new characters, Street Fighter EX, Onimusha re-releases, as well as HD ports of Power Stone and Dino Crisis 3.

Earlier this week Capcom cut its sales and earnings forecast for the financial year ending March 31, 2013 due to poorer than expected Resident Evil 6 sales and a Monster Hunter 4 delay.
