Cave/Capcom licence in releation to Progrear
« on: July 24, 2009, 12:11:43 PM »
Now ive noticed that lots of posters and goodies are getting made of prett much the whole back catalogue bar Progear. Whats up with this? is there some sort of bullshit which stops cave from producing product or are they just not touching the game for whatever reason?

IKD recently mentioned Progear won't get a port FROM CAVE because Capcom owns the rights to the game. The only way a port could happen is if Capcom ports it. All related Progear goods (posters, etc) similarly can only be produced BY CAPCOM. It's as simple as that.

The exact same as ESPRade and Guwange w/ Atlus.  They're more than welcome to attain the rights for Progear stuff.  Price might be out of range though.

What about Donpachi and Dodonpachi; weren't they published by Atlus as well, or was the arrangement different from the ESPRade and Guwange releases?

I think they're Atlus too.

Yes, they are Atlus.  But I think it's clear that Cave still owns the rights to the IP....just not the copyrights to the games themselves.
