Kakao Games was to be the publisher for Capcom Super League Online, a tactical role-playing game for Android and iOS phones developed by Capcom Entertainment Korea that was planned for release in South Korea only. The character-collecting game allowed the player to recruit from an all-star cast of characters from different Capcom IPs to fight against various villains. A closed beta test of the Android version was conducted from 4–7 October 2018. The game was scrapped due to an unspecified "business decision" between Kakao Games and Capcom, which also closed down its Korean branch.
