With the Nintendo Switch set to come out in March 2017, one of the console’s high-profile third-party partners, Capcom, has now spoken up to say how it may support the console.
The English translation of Capcom’s newest earnings QA was published today. In it, Capcom said the company is currently “carrying out research” into how it could possibly bring its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One multiplatform games to Switch. Because the research is ongoing, Capcom could not offer specifics.
Capcom also pointed out that there are “differences in the desired direction” and play-style of the Switch and the PS4 and Xbox One. This is no doubt a reference to the Switch’s console/mobile hybrid nature.
“At Capcom, we determine which platform to release a title for after considering the features of both our software and the hardware in question, believing we must bring the enjoyment of our games to their maximum potential,” the company said.
Also in the QA, Capcom offered a high-level statement regarding its take on the Switch.
“It is excellent to have the market invigorated with new hardware launches,” the company said. “As a software publisher, we endeavor to develop games that offer enjoyment best suited to each piece of hardware’s features and target users. Following first party, in order to introduce our own content we are currently moving forward with internal planning and analysis as a partner company.”
Capcom is one of the dozens of companies supporting Switch, joining big-name outfits like Activision, Electronic Arts, Square Enix, Bethesda, and others. The company doesn’t have any announced titles for the platform, however.
Switch goes on sale in March 2017, though its price and release date have not been announced. Nintendo will reveal the console’s price, system specifications, and launch lineup during a briefing slated for January 12, 2017. Nintendo has told fans not to expect any further news on the console until then.
