Capcom´s vice President´s Take on the Survey

Last year, around the 20th of December Capcom ran a survey about what kind of downloadable games, and reboots of previous franchises their fans want to see from them in the future. The survey was a big success, with over sixty-thousand responses from fans. Now a fan of their Megaman franchise asked on the official Capcom forum, what they were able to take away from the surveys results. Capcom´s Senior Vice President Christian Svensson responded to the question personally, you can read what he wrote below.

“I think the breadth of feedback we received was fantastic (more than 60K respondents) and I think Japan will think the same. So thanks everyone for taking the time.

The data collected was very telling and in my opinion easily gives a prioritized list of things I think we should do (conveniently enough, many of them are things we’ve been pushing for for a while). My next task is to convince the gatekeepers in Japan with the data (which they have in their possession) and ensure what we’re working on fits with the complete digital strategy for the company.

Games of this sort take a couple months to greenlight and usually a year or more to make, so again, to set expectations, please don’t expect any new news being driven from this survey in the short term. That said, we do have games already in development in this segment, some of which you’ll hear about a bit later in the year.”

It sounds like Capcom is starting to listen to what their fans have been saying for a long time, let´s hope we will be able to see the games we wanted for a long time come out in the next few years.
