Capcom Co., Ltd. (株式会社カプコン, Kabushiki-gaisha Kapukon) is a Japanese video game developer and publisher. Headquartered in Chuo-ku, Osaka, Japan, the company is famous for many video game series, most notably the Mega Man, Street Fighter, Ace Attorney, Ghosts 'n Goblins, and Resident Evil series. Originally established in 1983, Capcom has grown into a multinational company with subsidiaries and branches in East Asia, North America, and Europe.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

One of Capcom's flagship characters, Mega Man from the Mega Man series, appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4, along with the main characters from the successor series making cameos in his Final Smash. Ryu of the Street Fighter series was made available as DLC in June 2015, making Capcom the first third party company to have multiple playable representatives (later followed by Sega in the same installment with Bayonetta being made available in February 2016 in addition to Sonic the Hedgehog, who is included in the base game). Costumes based on the Hunter and Rathalos armor from the Monster Hunter series later appeared as DLC for Mii Swordfighters.
