Capcom’s Main Attraction At Comic-Con Is Monster Hunter 4

By Spencer . July 23, 2014 . 7:29pm

Monster Hunter was a big presence at Capcom’s E3 booth, and it’s a big presence at their booth at the San Diego Comic-Con as well. For the event, Capcom have brought back their giant Gore Magala statue. They also have sections of their booth dedicated to Mega Man and Ace Attorney.

      I did not expect that image, but man if it doesn’t match the article.

  • Hyero

    I really love Monster Hunter, so I’m glad it’s getting all of the attention right now. Hopefully this will be a good chance for it to explode more in the West than it did previously with Tri and 3U.

    Well no womder its the main attraction its the only thing keeping them alive aside from street fighter

  • Lloyd Christmas

    Aw man that Megaman helmet looks awesome.

  • Rafael Martines

    cool Megaman products… but what about a game?

    At least we’ll get Mighty n9 :D

    • Attribule

      It depends.

      Considering Mega Man as a franchise starting imploding on itself due to gross over-saturation of its games and some with questionable quality, I believe the fanbase to be diminished a lot more than the die-hard fans want to believe. I’d compare Mega Man’s fanbase to Sonic’s, and quite possibly it’s even smaller than that.

      Now, when people talk about there “still being a lot of interest in more Mega Man”, this is only based on the opinion of a die-hard fan and not cold hard evidence. While you can use Mighty No.9 as an example, I’d encourage you to realize that gamers will back many things based purely on hype. “Hype” in this case being a large number of people getting together and wanting something, and therefore they’ll back a project they don’t actually want but backed anyway because they were swept up in the moment. The biggest and most well-known example of this would be the Ouya. The Ouya wasn’t a system most people wanted, but because there was a “movement” for it thousands backed it anyway. After release it was a complete commercial failure.

      Capcom could be releasing Mega Man merchandise not only to appeal to the people that would want it, but it can also be used to gauge how relevant Mega Man might still be. If the products sell quite well and continue to do so they may be convinced to try putting out a new title for the franchise.
      The Mega Man titles they’ve released haven’t done respectably, to my knowledge. To be fair you could say that that could be the cause of a possible disconnect between Capcom’s higher-ups and the community that supports them, but at the end of the day it is what it is: Poor sales discourage them from continuing support, which is understandable. I think efforts to strengthen the bridge between the community and the Capcom “brains” would be the only thing the players could realistically ask for at this moment.

        would be great to back up all your opinions with at least one fact. “poor sales”? that’s stated as a fact, however according to capcom themselves: “Both Svensson and Capcom’s Seth Killian stated months later that the company was “definitely happy” with the sales of the game. Inafune also expressed his satisfaction with game’s success, proclaiming that it far exceeded their expectations.A follow-up game, Mega Man 10, was released in March 2010 for WiiWare, PSN, and XBLA. ” and as for mega man 10: “Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Senior Vice President of strategic planning and business development, stated that the company was pleased with the sales of Mega Man 10″ – both from wikipedia and both quotes sited on wikipedia if you want primary sources… so unless you have inside knowledge of the profit and loss figures on these two titles i’d say that statement is patently false – and overall you have no idea why capcom is not making a megaman game… i would even go so far to say you have no idea if they are making a megaman game at all…

          Mega Man 9 and Mega Man 10 were made on relatively small budgets. I don’t think that needs to be pointed out every single time people point to those games as signs of surefire success. MM9 and 10 had their day, but that design won’t work a third time, and anything more ambitious would require significantly more resources.

          So everything @attribule:disqus said still holds true. Taking into account the required resources for a more ambitious game (like, say, Legends 3 or Universe), Capcom may have felt a couple of years ago that the audience wasn’t there.

          The fact that they go out of their way to include Mega Man merchandise at all of their events and are constantly releasing these games on Virtual Console means they’re very much trying to get a feel for where demand is at.

    Oh hey! I’m in the picture with the power-up shirt.

  • Johnnyxt

    Keep calm and Chive on!

  • Franky Oda Abraham

    Damn them… Wish I was there in my MH cosplay… Why couldn’t they go to AX?

  • SlickRoach

    Man, San Diego CC looks awesome. I managed to nab tickets to NYCC this October and this is going to be my first one but some day San Diego, some day…

  • Namuro

    Dammit, that’s not how you do it, girl! You’re holding it wrong!!

    Also, Rockman Gigamix! Wey-hey!

    Speaking of Rockman, after seeing him in Smash Bros. I really wish that they’d do a new Rockman game with that kind of graphic. Put in some new twists, like being able to spare the enemy bosses, and gain different power based on your decision, which also affects the story line. Lots of multiple paths based on what powers you’ve been collecting. Heck, throw in even more bosses to increase the gameplay time. Give the characters more personalities via cutscene and everything…

    Ah… Even though we’re getting both Mighty No.9 and Gunvolt soon… I’m still wishing for a Rockman game…

    Man, that Megaman helmet…. *nosebleed

  • MSJ

    Dat MM helmet doe.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Their monster replicas always look so awesome

  • Göran Isacson

    Man do I ever hope that all this merch is leading somewhere. I love me some Megaman, and I do hope there’s enough sales to at least kindle SOME interest in Capcom’s management for a new game. ANY new game…

  • Ciaran Doherty

    Im hoping for Mega Man X9, Devil May Cry 5, Street Fighter 5, Viewtiful Joe 3 and Marvel vs Capcom 4 games to be announced one day hopefully :].
