Capcom of America
« on: February 04, 2013, 01:13:10 AM »
This might be a dumb question but I really want to know. Obviously CoA cares a good deal about the Megaman franchise. Way more than CoJ seems to. I assume it's related to copyright issues somehow but seeing as they are technically a division of Capcom why can't CoA develop a Megaman game? Again I'm sorry if this is one of those duh kind of questions.

Only if CoJ let's them.
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

So they hold all the intellectual rights to the Rockman franchise?

What part of:

You do not understand?
CoA can't do [parasitic bomb] without CoJ approval.
So that means, yes... they hold all the rights.

And here I thought it was because nobody liked Ronzer Labs' Mega Man 1/3 or US Gold's Mega Man for the Game Gear.
Except me, of course.

No need to be rude, I just wanted clarification on why they'd need permission.

They weren't developed by Capcom. =P There are some good megaman games that weren't produced by Capcom though like the Rockman World games.

What's the major difference between a game made by Capcom of America and a licensed game made by a third-party, exactly?  Remember: The Rockman Zero and Rockman ZX games weren't made by Capcom, either. (Not to mention Rockman 9/10.)

Exactly that. It's still made by Capcom, simply a different branch of the same company.

A third party is a third party. The game is licensed to them

No, but Inti was founded by former Capcom employees, some of which worked on various Mega Man games before leaving. So I guess you could say it's Capcom in spirit.

Kinda like the dev team that made Viewtiful Joe and Okami? Clover Studios was it? Sorry I haven't played those games in forever. Also I forgot to thank you for answering my question Flame. =]
