The Capcom Five is a set of five video games released between 2003 and 2005 by Capcom for the Nintendo GameCube, all overseen by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. Nintendo and Capcom had enjoyed a close relationship during the Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo eras, and the announcement of the five new games was initially seen as an important show of third-party developer support for the GameCube. P.N.03, a futuristic third-person shooter, Viewtiful Joe, a side-scrolling action-platformer, Dead Phoenix, a shoot ’em up, and Resident Evil 4, a survival horror third-person shooter, were developed by Capcom’s Production Studio 4; Killer7, an action-adventure game with first-person shooter elements, was developed by Grasshopper Manufacture. Viewtiful Joe and Killer7 sold modestly, the former in spite of critical acclaim and the latter owing to polarized reviews, but Killer7 gained a significant cult following, effectively launching the career of creator Suda51. R esident Evil 4 was the runaway success of the five, though its GameCube sales were undercut by the announcement of a Sony PlayStation 2 version, in an early sign of Nintendo’s failure to attract and hold third-party support during the GameCube era.
