Remember Dino Crisis? The series by Resident Evil’s creator Shinji Mikami that featured dinosaurs rather than flesh-eating zombies? While nothing about the franchise has been announced or hinted at for a new game, things might be heating up soon as Capcom has filed a new trademark for the series.
Capcom Japan, which is Capcom HQ, has filed a trademark for Dino Crisis. Mind, this isn’t confirmation at all of anything as publishers usually renew trademarks of old games to ensure they get to keep it and such. That said, with the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake, and the upcoming release of Resident Evil 3 Remake out next year, could Capcom already be looking ahead past that? I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.
For those not familiar with the franchise, Dino Crisis debuted back in 1999 and featured Regina as the protagonist. It was lauded then for being able to stand out from its big brother (Resident Evil) even if a lot of similarities existed (which is understandable given the game director).
The last entry in the series, Dino Crisis 3, was released back in 2003 for the original Xbox and takes place in space.
Are you ready for a new Dino Crisis game? What about a remake? If Capcom can give it the same love and commitment as the Resident Evil franchise, I’m all for it.
