Capcom franchises have a long history in gaming, but their recent success in games like Street Fighter IV and the upcoming Street Fighter V, which launches on May 19, is set to make that tradition even stronger.
So what do you think about these franchises?
Here are some of our favorite titles and games in the series that are worth picking up now.
Capcom’s “Deadpool” series (Capcom) The first of its kind, “DeadPOOL” was the first title to take a stand against “Doom,” a video game that had a “pay to win” system in the early 2000s.
DeadPOOL’s sequel, “Sonic” (CapCom) In 2005, Capcom took the first steps toward the creation of the “Sega Genesis,” the first console to feature a game engine that allowed for multiplayer gameplay.
It was the same engine that powered “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.”
And then, “The Dark Sword of Doom” (Chernin Corp.)
This third game in the “Dark Sword of Destiny” trilogy was the last game released by the Japanese developer before its bankruptcy in 2011.
Capcom’s “Ghostbusters” series(Capcom, Capcom) A staple of the franchise, “Ghostbuster” came out in 1996 and went on to be one of the best action-adventure video games ever made.
It also spawned the first game in a franchise called “Ghosts” (that also came out on a console), the “Boomstick” (a handheld version of the game), and “The Gauntlet.”
“GhostBusters” is the latest installment in the franchise that also featured “Ninja Turtles,” “Spider-Man,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and “Guardian of the Realm.”
Capcom’s Dragon Ball Z series(Sega, Capcom, Bandai Namco) This is another franchise that came out of the Japanese video game industry, and it’s still a big part of the gaming landscape today.
In 2016, the Bandai-developed “Dragon Ball Z: Revival of the Saiyans” was released on PS4 and Xbox One, and was followed in 2017 by a “Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2” and a “Kamehameha” (Dragon Ball’s Legendary Fists) game.
And, the franchise is also coming to Xbox One and PS4 later this year.
Capcom has released more than a dozen “Ghost” titles in the past decade, and each one is a classic.
“Capcom: Lost Galaxy” (Sega) “Lost Galaxy” is Capcom’s newest entry in the Lost Galaxy series, which launched in 2003.
It follows the crew of the USS “Lost Horizon” and the mysterious alien ship “Ghost Ship.”
As the game unfolds, you’ll learn about the events of the last three years in the Andromeda galaxy, including the mysterious and mysterious events of Captain Ginyu’s death.
“Ghost Saga” (Tekken) “Ghost Wars” is one of Tekken’s most popular games.
In the sequel, the player will explore an alien world full of ghostly warriors called “Zomboks.”
“Mortal Kombat” (Nakamai) “Morton” is Namco’s flagship fighting game franchise, and “MORTON” is an old-school fighting game that came to PlayStation 2 and Xbox and became an instant hit in Japan.
Namco has also released a sequel to the franchise called, “Morgue.”
And, it’s been ported to many other platforms, including Nintendo Switch and Xbox.
“Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite” (Marvel) Marvel’s “Infinite” is Marvel’s newest title, which will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one on May 27, 2019.
The game, which was developed by Sucker Punch and published by Marvel Studios, was announced at this year’s E3 Expo and will have a worldwide release later this summer.
It will feature new characters, gameplay modes, and even more.

It’s the latest in the fighting game series, and the first to be published by Namco.
“Street Fighter X Tekken” (Bandai Namcom) “Street Fighters X Tekkon” was Namco Bandai’s first game to take place in the fictional city of Tekkopolis.

In 2019, Banda Namco also released the “Dangerous Games” and first episode of the second season of the show, “Dirty Mouthed,” which also aired in 2019.
