Capcom has stated during its latest shareholders meeting that it will continue to support the Nintendo Switch. At this point in time, we don’t know what the publisher may have up its sleeve, but we are excited to find out. Capcom has been hitting all the right notes with most of its recent titles like Monster Hunter Worlds and Resident Evil 7. As you probably know, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, the follow up to 2016 3DS release, will launch as an exclusive on the Nintendo Switch later this year on August 28th. The game will release digitally and at retail.
Below you can read the direct quote from Capcom’s shareholders’ meeting.
“Q?I believe that if the number of Nintendo Switch units sold increases, it should positively impact Capcom’s performance. What are your impressions of the Switch?
A?We currently have Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. available for the Nintendo Switch, and plan to continue developing other titles for this platform in the future. Additionally, going forward we would like to focus on esports, as well as developing video games that take advantage of connection speed improvements on smartphones and those that support ongoing visual improvements in televisions.”
This is really exciting and has me wondering what new titles Capcom could have baking in the oven. What Capcom games are you hoping to see on Nintendo Switch? Be sure to leave all your thoughts in the comments section below, or head over to our Facebook page and join the discussion!
As I mentioned before, Capcom has had a bit of resurgence recently. The Monster Hunter series hit an all-time high with Monster Hunter World, shipping 5 million units worldwide in the first week. Resident Evil 7 brought the franchise back to survival horror and also found critical acclaim, earning an 86/100 on Metacritic.
We here at Enthusiast Gaming loved Resident Evil 7, you can watch our review discussion here. In short, while the return to survival horror was welcomed, the first-person camera perspective didn’t allow the main protagonist to have a personality. We are extremely happy that the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake is going back to third-person perspective.
Speaking of Resident Evil 2, Capcom, unfortunately, has no plans to release its upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake on Nintendo Switch. This comes as a pretty big disappointment considering a slew of Resident Evil titles have made their way to Nintendo platforms in the past. Most recently, Resident Evil: Revelations 1 & 2 on Switch.
“No, not at this time,” Capcom brand manager Mike Lunn told Game Rant. “We just wanted to focus on PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the moment,” he added.
