There is no doubt that Capcom has been on a roll as of late, with the Resident Evil 2 Remake getting such a good reception and even winning some GOTY awards, while the recently revealed Resident Evil 3 Remake looks incredible already. There are, however, only so many Resident Evil games to remake before you have to look at your old library of IPs and that might be what Capcom is doing, as new trademark filings for Dino Crisis, Darkstalkers, Power Stone and Rockman have been spotted online.
First up, it is important to note that publishers sometimes do renew trademarks without there ever being a remake or a new game for an IP. With that out of the way, this news comes from the Japanese trademark filings (as spotted by Bloody Disgusting) where multiple trademark filings for old Capcom IPs have been made by the publisher.
At the time of writing, Capcom has not revealed any remakes or new games in the Dino Crisis franchise, nor have we heard anything about a new Darkstalkers or Power Stone game. However, with Capcom’s remakes doing so incredibly well, there is always a chance that we could see a Dino Crisis (or any other old IP) remake happen on the RE Engine, which would be completely awesome.
One thing that will give fans a bit more hope is that in the publisher’s 2019 investor report, it revealed plans to “Awaken dormant intellectual properties”, so there is definitely a chance that one (or more) of theses trademark filings could mean something.
Which game IP do you hope Capcom works on after (or alongside) the Resident Evil 3 remake? Are you a fan of the classic Dino Crisis? Let us know in the comment section below.
