FUN FACT: Capcom founder Kenzo Tsujimoto was also involved with the inception of Irem, the company behind R-Type.

Capcom's library of games is arguably the envy of the industry, thanks in part to the company's prolific coin-op output during the '80s and '90s. During this period the firm pumped out classics like Strider, 1942, Ghouls 'n Ghosts, Captain Commando, Street Fighter, Darkstalkers and many more besides, as well as producing original content for home consoles such as Mega Man and Resident Evil.

Capcom has just lifted the lid on Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, the second reboot of a franchise which began way back in 1998, and can trace its roots even further back to Capcom's first Marvel-based fighters, such as X-Men: Children of the Atom and X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

Back in May, the Japanese veteran stated that it was looking to exploit its existing IP more effectively, and alongside the Marvel vs. Capcom announcement it repeated this stance:

In addition to regular major title releases each fiscal year, Capcom is currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP. Beginning with MARVEL VS. CAPCOM: INFINITE, a return for the series following a five-year hiatus, Capcom looks to enhance its corporate value even further by utilizing its library of rich contents.
