Capcom is famous for making a large collection of iconic and famous gaming franchises. Mega Man, Resident Evil, Strider, and Street Fighter come to mind.

The NES original is a gaming classic and Capcom tried giving the series a second short at the spotlight back in 2008-2010 with help from Western Developer Grin.
