Background

Capcom is a Japanese video game developer and publisher that is well-known for the creation of multiple game franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man. It was founded in 1979, and their first game would be published in 1984.

1st Logo (1991-1996, 2013)

Logo: On a black background, we see the Capcom logo (with the word "CAPCOM" in yellow with a blue outline, set in the Korinna font), which shines briefly. The logo looks metallic. In some cases, there is no animation.

Variants:

  • On Capcom-developed games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, especially Mega Man (starting with the 4th game in the series), the logo has "PRESENTS" in white below the now-smaller Capcom logo. The logo shines in the 6th game.
  • On Capcom's MVP Football (1993), launched only in the Americas for the SNES, the logo is bigger and fades in rather slowly compared to the original logo. "PRESENTS" is written in blue and a different font. The logo was accompanied by a high-pitched version of the theme described below.
  • On games released for the Game Boy, the logo is in monochrome. One example with this is Street Fighter II.
  • On Final Fight One, the non-metallic version of the logo from the 2nd one is used, and the "Presents" text is in red.
  • An enhanced version of the logo made a surprise appearance on DuckTales Remastered.

FX/SFX: Just the shining.

Music/Sounds: Just two warbling synths, then a long-lasting electronic piano glissando (which sounds different depending on the system/game it appears on). In other cases, it's silent.

Music/Sounds Variant: A low-pitched version of the theme can be heard on the game Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems (awaiting for more games that used the music variant).

Availability: Seen on all Capcom developed games in the 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit era, such as Mega Man X1-3 (only the SNES version of Megaman X3 has this logo, the PlayStation and Megaman X Collection versions use the next logo), Street Fighter 2, etc. This logo was left intact on Megaman 7 in Megaman Anniversary Collection for PS2 and GC, and on Megaman X and Megaman X2 in Megaman X Collection, also for PS2 and GC. The "Capcom Presents" variant is known to be on Megaman 4-6 on NES, which is also left intact on Megaman Anniversary Collection and Final Fight on the SNES.

Editor's Note: It is a very popular logo.

2nd Logo (1994-2000)

Logo: On a black background, we see the Capcom logo fading in and out, usually seen after the Q-Sound logo.

Variants:

  • On the Marvel vs Capcom series and Marvel-licensed arcade games produced by Capcom, starting with the Japanese release of X-Men: Children of the Atom, the logo is seen on or next to a globe with Ryu from Street Fighter.
  • On Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo (Saturn version only, the PlayStation and GBA versions use the 6th logo), the logo looks similar to the Marvel vs Capcom variant, except that the globe is on a white background and is bigger, but it lacks Ryu's silhouette.
  • On Eco Fighters, the logo is in an red oblong shape with a blue border, in front of a circular banner reading "The Great Entertainer" behind it.
  • On Vampire Savior (and the Japan only updates Vampire Hunter 2 and Vampire Savior 2), the logo is seen with 2 versions of Akuma/Gouki from Super Street Fighter II Turbo, with "Dirty Beret" (a reference to the programmers Team Dirty Beret) on the left and "X" on the right (Japan only). The logo is highlighted in dark blue in Japan and in red on international releases.
  • On The Punisher, "PRESENTED BY" is above the logo.
  • On Strider 2, the logo slides to the left along with a red silhouette of the main character Strider Hiryu.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Usually silent, the end of the Q-Sound jingle, or an announcer saying Capcom.

Availability: Seen on most arcade games using the CPS-2 and Sony ZN-1/2 hardware.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie variant) (1994)

Logo: On a black background, pieces of the logo in gold appear spinning in one by one on the screen. They are then connected together (by cyan lazers) to form the completed logo, which then slowly zooms in and changes into it's standard colors. "Presents" appears below it, and then the film's opening scene plays.

FX/SFX: CGI animation for the golden Capcom logo and the "Presents" text at the end.

Music/Sounds: The beginning excerpt of "CRY" by BIG LIFE, which starts with an piano arpeggio, and then a twinkling sound plays after the logo is formed. In the English version of the film, the audio fades out after the "Presents" text appears. In the original Japanese version, the twinkling sound continues to play until the lightning strikes.

Availability: Only found on Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie (Street Fighter II: Movie in Japan).

Editor's Note: Although it was only seen on one film, the animation is a little cheap, as it is a calm logo. This logo is also a little reminiscent of the next logo.

4th Logo (August 11, 1995-September 14, 1996)

CapcomPiece.png

Logo: On a black background, a glowing purple line draws an outline of the Capcom logo, which is taken away by a gold square which zooms out while spinning, and then breaks apart. The gold version of that outline then zooms in, which then flashes to the completed Capcom logo on a white background.

FX/SFX: The purple line drawing the Capcom logo, and the gold square spinning, zooming out, and breaking apart, as well as the zoom in of the completed Capcom logo.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized tune plays throughout, along with a shattering noise when the gold square breaks.

Music/Sounds Variant: On early beta versions of Resident Evil, the logo is silent.

Availability: So far, it has only been seen on early PlayStation and Saturn games produced by the company, normally with the Virgin Interactive logo appearing after this logo in Europe. Games that have this include Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter: The Movie, the original release of Resident Evil (the Director's Cut and Saturn versions use the 6th logo), X-Men: Children of Atom (the Saturn version only, the PlayStation version uses the 7th logo), Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors, Street Fighter Alpha 2, and Megaman X3 (the latter of which being only released in Japan and Europe). It has also been seen on the version of Megaman X3 included in Megaman X Collection for PS2 and GC (most likely since it's an emulation of the PlayStation version). This also appears on Japan-only games such as Arthur to Astaroth no Nazo Makaimura: Incredible Toons and Gakkou no Kowai Uwasa: Hanako-san ga Kita!! for the PlayStation, and on the Street Fighter II: Movie game. Check your old Capcom games from the period for this logo.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Logo (January 31-September 30, 1996)

Logo: We see a dark skybox with a water surface below. A brief bursting explosion occurs on the center of the screen as the 3D Capcom logo, flipped above moves close to the camera while the angle changes and the Capcom logo places itself in front, zooming out with a glossy shader on it. The logo settles as a starry light passes through the outline of the text.

FX/SFX: Generic 3D CG animation.

Music/Sounds: A quiet gong/whoosh sound.

Availability: Very rare, appeared only on the FMV game Fox Hunt.

Editor's Note: Due of it's rarity, it is considered one of the most forgotten logos from Capcom.


6th Logo (October 25, 1996-April 13, 2000, March 28, 2003)


Logo: On a black background, we see several teal cubes floating around. Then, white lasers start connecting to the cubes. As this happens, the cubes form the Capcom logo, which is first shown tilted on its side, then the camera zooms back as the logo flips over. After this is complete, the background fades to white.

FX/SFX: The lasers connecting to the cubes, then forming the Capcom logo.

Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth, with many more synth notes and laser sounds (which sound somewhat reminiscent of the original jingle).

Availability: Can be seen on Capcom-developed games on the PlayStation, Saturn, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, and PC games from that era, including Star Gladiator Episode I - Final Crusade (the game this logo first appeared in), Megaman X4 (on both the PlayStation and Megaman X Collection versions), Marvel vs Capcom, and all the Resident Evil games on the PS1, except for the original version of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 3, with the former using the 4th logo and the latter using the next logo. It's also seen on Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo for the PlayStation, X2: No Relief, Street Fighter EX Plus α, Buster Bros.

It makes another appearance on the GBA port of Super Puzzle Fighter II.

He stops, looks around, and sees a fast Capcom logo. We zoom in to Joe, who is about to get hit by the Capcom logo, and Joe dodges it in slow motion. The Capcom logo stops above Joe, and the vowels in the logo ("A" and "O") fall down. We zoom in to Joe again, and he does a circle kick to the letters. We zoom out, a flash occurs, and the letters fall back into place. Joe uses Mach Speed to run away, and the Capcom logo is formed, which causes another flash.

The Mets then smash the boulder up, all covered in a cloud of dust barring several bits of rubble flying off.

Capcom3DSLogo.PNG

Logo: On a white background with streams of small blue cubes, blue parts of the Capcom logo circles in letter-by-letter before arranging themselves together. Once they come to a halt, the background turns black and the yellow letters fly in from the top of the screen in a "rollercoaster" fashion and crash into blue parts from behind to form the Capcom logo, sending out sparks, and the logo emitting multiple copies of Capcom logos in front of it before pulling them back and being showered in quick flashes of light. After this, the logo fades out.
