Capcom as a company has changed its priorities several times over the decades. The company initially was all about the development and publishing of arcades games. Quickly though, the company began making games on home consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System. Later, the company got involved in making games on the PlayStation and Xbox. In the arcades, Capcom became known for its fighting games like Street Fighter. On consoles, Capcom rose to prominence with their iconic Mega Man, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, and Monster Hunter franchises.
