Creator / Capcom

Capcom is a leading third-party game developer that got its start in 1979 as a publisher of electronic games. In 1984, Capcom (originally the name Capcom was a contracted form of its official name at the time, Japan Capsule Computers) released its first Arcade Game, a scrolling shooter entitled Vulgus. They would go on to make several more shooters like that, including the famed 19XX series, before hitting it big with games like Mega Man 1 and Street Fighter II.

Capcom also briefly entered the arcade Pinball industry in the mid-ninties, hiring Mark Ritchie from Williams Electronics to be their Director of Engineering. Williams sued, claiming Ritchie violated his contract's non-competitive clause; the case was rendered moot when Capcom closed its pinball division in 1996.
