Capcom "Focused" on Reviving Classic Franchises

In a press release yesterday, Capcom declared that in addition to Marvel VS Capcom (Infinite), the company is "currently focused on reviving series that have not had new entries recently, or otherwise dormant IP." While this isn't exclusive to fighting game releases, this is certainly a new glimmer of hope for a revival of fan-favorite series such as Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, and Final Fight. So if you've been asking Capcom for new reboots, certainly keep on asking!  (Source: Capcom)
