How many characters can you name?
I technically know a life without Capcom, but just barely. Capcom is now celebrating its 40th anniversary, which means I’m one year older than the famous game developer/publisher. Without a doubt, I can say my childhood was fueled by the franchises of Capcom, and it’s great to see them alive and well 4 decades later.
In honor of the special occasion, Capcom has shared a brand-new piece of artwork created by longtime Capcom artist, Kazuya Nuri. Nuri joined with Capcom back in 1999 with Breath of Fire IV, and he’s contributed to a number of big-name franchises over the years, including Monster Hunter and Ace Attorney.
Nuri’s art features a who’s who of Capcom characters from over the years. Some are still around and kicking in games, while others don’t get as much play as they used to. Still, each one of them is an integral part of Capcom, as they all helped the developer get to where they are today. Here’s to another 40 years (at least!), Capcom!
