Capcom isn't quite finished with the cash cow that is HD remakes of classic fighting games.
After the runaway success of last year's HD repackagings of Bionic Commando and Super Street Fighter II Turbo, we shouldn't be surprised that Capcom's still eager to milk this classic games cash cow some more. While admitting that "not every game needs it," Capcom's Christian Svensson has said that the company is going to "potentially" give the HD treatment to more titles in its stable of classic fighters.
"Are we done doing HD Remixes? No we're not done," Svensson said. "But the next ones that we do will be even better, based on what we learned."
Which leaves the question of which games are candidates for HD remix-ification. Asked about the possibility of the popular Marvel vs. Capcom 2 getting the HD treatment, Svensson said that "Marvel would be great to do. There's obviously a fan base for it. It's probably our most requested title. Unfortunately, I wish I had news to share on that front but I don't."
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 has been rumored for an PSN/XBLA release for some time, so maybe Capcom's mum on that front because they've already got a non-HD version in the works. Which means they'd be working on other franchises. My best guess? Darkstalkers, cause really, Morrigan in HD = big money. But obviously Capcom's got quite the catalog to choose from, even if we're just talking fighting games. Power Stone HD Remix, anyone?
