Capcom’s Christian Svensson has told G4 the the company is working on a Natal game based on an existing IP.

“I think you’ll see again a brand focus on what we’re doing there [on Natal], perhaps a brand we haven’t seen in a while. That’s exciting,” said Svensson.

Capcom did stress this Natal content was brand new, as opposed to Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition PlayStation Motion Controller support.

“What we’re doing is creating it from the ground up for Natal, in this case. But it’s; how do I describe this? it’s created from the ground up for Natal. We’re not looking at Natal as, ‘OK, here’s a little Natal gimmick that we’ve worked into some existing game.”

Natal was announced for a Holiday 2010 release last week at CES.
