Capcom is a Japanese video game, manga and anime development studio located in Osaka, Japan.

Capcom's predecessor, I.R.M. Corporation, was founded on May 30, 1979 by Kenzo Tsujimoto. Tsujimoto was still president of Irem Corporation when he founded I.R.M. Tsujimoto worked concomitantly in both companies until leaving the former in 1983.

Capcom was created on June 15, 1983 following the privatization of Japan Capsule Computers by Kenzo Tsujimoto starting as a sales company for Sambi and then delying into video games a year later.

Among its most famous sagas are Street Fighter, Mega Man, Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, Ace Attorney and the saga Marvel vs. Capcom, a series of fighting games co-starring Marvel Comics characters. They also host their own eSports championships.
