Capcom Co., Ltd. (株式会社カプコン, Kabushiki-gaisha Kapukon) is an Osaka-based Japanese developer and publisher of video games, known for creating multi-million-selling franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man. Originally established in 1983, it has since become an international enterprise with branches and subsidiaries in North America, Europe, and East Asia. While Capcom's first product was the coin-operated Little League from July 1983, its first real video game, the arcade title Vulgus, was released in May 1984. Beginning with a Nintendo Entertainment System port of 1942 published in December 1985, the company started to venture into the market of home console video games, which became its main business segment a few years later. Since then, Capcom created 15 multi-million-selling game series, the most successful of which is Resident Evil.

Apart from its own arcade boards, Capcom also distributed its own Sega Titan Video, Sega NAOMI, and Sega NAOMI GD-ROM boards and games; all such are listed below.
