Capcom Co., Ltd. is a Japanese developer and publisher of video games, known for creating multi-million-selling franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mega Man, Devil May Cry, the Ace Attorney, Monster Hunter, Sengoku Basara, Dead Rising, and many other franchises. Capcom is also well known for the Versus series of crossover games like Marvel vs. Capcom, which began well before the Walt Disney Company bought Marvel Entertainment in 2009. Originally established in 1983, it has since become an international enterprise with branches and subsidiaries in North America, Europe, and East Asia.

Many video games based on Disney properties were developed and/or published by Capcom, particularly for Nintendo game systems, especially between 1988 and 1994.

Capcom has just released the 6th, newest entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, titled Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.
