Capcom Co., Ltd. (株式会社カプコン) is a Japanese video game developer and publisher.

Foundation

Capcom was founded as IRM Co., Ltd. by Kenzo Tsujimoto on May 30, 1979, while he was still at his other company, Irem. In May 1981, another company, Japan Capsule Computers, was founded. Both companies were established to manufacture and sell electronic game machines.

IRM and Japan Capsule Computers were combined and renamed Sambai Co., Ltd. in September 1981. In 1983, Kenzo Tsujimoto was forced out of Irem and on June 11, 1983, he formed Capcom Co. Ltd., with the intention of taking over the internal sales department of Sambai. The name of Capcom was a clipped compound formed from the name of Capsule Computers.

In January 1989, Capcom Co., Ltd. merged with Sambai Co., Ltd., and the resulting company retained the name Capcom Co., Ltd.
