Capcom Super Elections is still on and will officially close on April 12, 2024. However, Capcom has revealed the most anticipated games according to votes from 200,000 fans. Dino Crisis and Mega Man were the two games that popped up the most in the comments of the participants.

Dino Crisis 2

Earlier this year, the developer and publisher launched the Super Elections survey on its Capcom Town website which launched in June 2023 to celebrate Capcom’s 40th anniversary. Capcom has doubled down on making remakes of its most popular IPs. Rather than randomly selecting the games that it will remake, part of the reason for the election is unarguably to know the games that players want the company to remake.

Question 5 of the Super Elections survey asked, “Are there any Capcom game series (including spinoff games) that you would like to see get a sequel or new game?” Under the question, the developer listed 20 of its retro IPs, and voters were allowed to select up to 3.

The next question asked, “Is there a game that you would like to see completely remade with the latest technology, including character design and story direction?” This time voters were given nine options and could only select one.

In the word cloud shared by the developer, the games that appeared the most in the comments of voters had the biggest font size and the font size decreased with reduced mentions. In other words, the games mentioned the fewest had the smallest font size.

Dino Crisis, Mega Man, Resident Evil, and remake were the words of interest that popped up the most, suggesting players want to see these games remade or want to see more remakes—especially in the case of Resident Evil.

Other popular franchises such as Capcom Vs, Devil May Cry, and Dragon’s Dogma could barely be spotted. The company also posted the Japanese version of its word cloud and the games with the largest font sizes were Sengoku Basara, Gyakuten Saiba (Ace Attorney), Rockman (Mega Man), and Breath of Fire.

It is important to mention that the result of the survey doesn’t necessarily mean that Capcom will immediately dive into making remakes or sequels of the winning games. However, it means that the developer/publisher now has an idea of what players want to see and may consider working on such projects in the future.

Capcom is expanding its retro game offering on Capcom Town

Apart from diving in to complete the Super Elections, Capcom Town also has a collection of retro games from the publisher dating back to the NES, SNES, Famicom, and Super Famicom era. All the retro games are available in English and Japanese versions.

Mega Man

At the time of writing, I counted 16 English retro games from the publisher including Street Fighter Alpha 2, Super Street Fighter II- The New Challenger, Magic Sword, Mega Man, Mega Man X, Final Fight, Final Fight 2, Breath of Fire, and Ghosts’n Goblin.

I tested some of the games including Street Fighter, and Final Fight and they played seamlessly—albeit stuttered a lot because of my poor internet connection. One thing I found most interesting about the retro collection is that you can either use a keyboard or a gamepad. I tested the aforementioned games using a PS5 DualSense controller and it worked flawlessly.

Playing the games brought back childhood memories when I played with my siblings and competed to know who the better player was. You can find all the retro collections added to the website here.
