Capcom making Switch games targeted for next fiscal year, including Ace Attorney

Posted on November 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Capcom’s status has a bit unclear when it comes to supporting Switch. However, Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has made it clear that the company is planning games for the consoles.

Tsujimoto told Jiji that Capcom will have Switch games intended for release with the next fiscal year. That means we can expect to see titles after April. According to Tsujimoto, Ace Attorney is one big IP that we can expect to see on Nintendo’s console.

    Well at least that’s one victory.

  • Roto Prime

    Nani?!

  • Stuart

    Ok won’t lie, as much as Capcom is being idiot lately,an Ace Attourney for Switch is pretty hype.

    But for crying out loud,release it in the west and PHYSICAL. This franchise is already big enough to not being digital only over here.

    • Henrique Valle

      Lol, no.
      I’d rather get digital cheaper.

      • Stuart

        The latest Ace Attourney for 3DS costed 30 dollars. For that price I rather get physical.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        In a world where Digital-only media get Physical Media prices…

      • Zeebor

        But it never is.

  • Jeff Moreira

    Ace Attorney might be great but I would expect more from Capcom.
    A.A. is a game that I can purchase on mobile phone, it doesn’t look like it’s that hard to port…
    I mean don’t get me wrong A.A. is a great IP that i really like, but again, I have it on my phone and I don’t see it as being that big IP to be released only next year.
    I would expect from them MvC Infinite, RE7 etc etc.
    Well I guess we will have to wait and see.

    • GoldenTriforce

      It’s always Nintendo focused though. From my perspective at least we are getting it in the first place

  • Princess_Eevee9

    I’ll be that one, don’t care about your pledging Ace Attorney give me Okami/Monster Hunter/MegaMan jeez! Having everything is better than just saying gonna do just one game.

    • Reggie

      You’re just never happy, aren’t you.

      • Ardisan

        What if AA isnt his type of game and wants Capcom to at least support other fans of different games as well?

        • Reggie

          What I said was more in reference to how this person often complains.

    • Game_God

      I have to agree, don’t care at all about A.A., I want Okami HD, MH, Biohazard, Dragon Dogma, Darkstalkers, Breath of Fire…

    • RoadyMike

      Well it does say “including” Ace Attorney not “just” Ace Attorney
      Still, as much as I like the series I still prefer games with a bit more gameplay over visual novel games like AA. Hope they confirm more games soon

  • Vinicius

    Just give me Mega Man Legends 3 and Monster Hunter and I’ll be happy.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      First one is never gonna happen dude. Considering the connections to Inafune that the game has, that’s even more reason why it won’t happen. Monster Hunter maybe, but MML3? Sorry Charlie, that ship has long since sailed.

  • Zeebor

    Physical?

  • Yes! We need to see Daddy Phoenix on the telly.

  • Force

    It’s a start, but you’ve still a long way to go, Capcom. Bethesda puts you to shame.

  • Bart

    Good for people who like Ace Attorney, but what I would really like is some of the classic REs, preferably REmake or Code Veronica… Though I’m guessing they’ll probably port 4 first before they ever get round to those.

    • Yeah I could definitely see them porting Resident Evil 4: Switch Edition and then maybe Resident Evil 7 GOTY edition later

      • KnickKnackMyWack

        RE4 is the big one for me. HD and portable? Say no more.

  • awng782

    Capcom is finally coming to their senses.

  • Now Capcom wants to jump aboard the Switch train lol but seriously glad to see that they’ve seen the light. I appreciate Ace Attorney but I hope Monster Hunter World and Resident Evil 7 are two of the games you guys are bringing over to the Switch

  • Amethyst Gaze

    AA is probably the only reason they’ll get any money out of me this gen unless they want to ruin it. DMC5 is never happening and they’d probably mess it up somehow anyways like with most things they touch nowadays.

  • Exy

    THE EVALUATION SHALL C—

    Wait

    • SpectralDynamite

      NANI?!

  • Mr Objection

    Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Ace attorney

  • Huh. I predicted that, but them saying this early is something I did not foresee. Great~! I’m glad for Ace Attorney fans~!

    • Same. Third-parties are finally waking up in time enough to support the switch.

  • Aline Piroutek

    They’re milking AA to the death lately.

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      Hardly. It takes years for each installment. The last one came out in summer of 2016 and it looks like the Switch one won’t be out until after April 2018.

      • Henrique Valle

        3DS will still get one this year.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          It’s a remaster of Apollo Justice, a DS game that came out in 2007.

          • Henrique Valle

            Wow, i was thinking about Dai Gyakuten Saiban/ The Grand Ace Attorney sequel.
            So there are two Ace Attorney games this year.
            Not milking at all

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Is this some kind of joke? Those weren’t even localized.

      • Aline Piroutek

        We had 1 2 3 4 5 6 Layton Great1 Great2 for 3DS. Amazing 7 tiles (one is a trilogy) that’s a lot for a console with less than 8 years of life.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          The Layton game is a spinoff and as far as I now is considered non-canon and the Great games were never localized for the west so I’m not counting those either.

          Edit: Ah, misread what you meant so let me adjust. Now they are moving to Switch and fans are hungry for these games, so what exactly is the problem? They are not annual releases and it does not yet feel like they are running out of interesting ideas.

    • Ardisan

      They have been milking Monster Hunter more, its easy money.

      • Aline Piroutek

        They’re ALSO miking MH a lot.

  • SpectralDynamite

    Better late than never, I guess. Ace Attorney, Resident Evil, Street Fighter/Capcom VS, and Monster Hunter are your biggest IPs right now. Bring your best from all those over.

    And everything you’ve gypped us out of.

  • Aiddon

    Someone at CAPCOM is not happy at the lack of product they have for the Switch. This is what happens when you don’t diversify: you’d better hope what you gambled on works

  • Radish

    Guess they are starting to run out of that Sony money…..it was only a matter of time.

    • Had the same thoughts.

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      Nintendo’s audience has a strong connection with Capcom properties. Coupling this with their mishandling of Street Fighter V, this was pretty much bound to happen.

      • Force

        What strikes me as odd, is that they haven’t gone for it sooner. They were among those to ask for more RAM, but were dumbfounded now that the Switch is doing well. Feels to me that Capcom is just derping around.

      • Radish

        True. Back in the day all I had to see was the Capcom logo on a game to know it was gonna be good. That Street Fighter V nonsense would never be accepted by a Nintendo audience.

        • True. SFV should’ve been a full game from the start.

        • theFooFighter

          Hell it wasn’t accepted by the Sony and PC audience either

          • Radish

            Lol that says a lot.

  • Fatih

    Capcom! Give me Resident Evil 2 remake, Zack & Wiki 2, Okami 2, Dino Crisis 4 or I’m out.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Well then you’re out lol.

    • Everything will be cool exept Dino Crisis 4 I highy doubt with the mess they did with Dino Crisis 3 in space.

  • Douglas Siano

    Another game where Iris is forgotten

  • Ryosuke Yamada

    Well Capcom actually supports the Switch for once. Hopefully this is not too little too late. I’m a fan of Ace Attorney and it’s great seeing it coming to Switch.

    But seeing Capcom’s track record we might end up with a Great Ace Attorney 3 and never get localized. My faith in them is pretty much zero atm, hopefully they can surprise me.

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

    ok so they just confirmed ace attorney for switch? =D
    YEEEEAH

  • Wanderlei

    Something they can spit out quickly to cash in on the Switch. Hopefully it signals proper support to follow.

  • Glad to see Capcom come finally to their senses; looking forward to seeing what’s to come from them outside USFII, RE: Revelations and Ace Attorney.

    They better not skimp and they should really take their time in putting effort into their games (and ports) that they plan to bring on the switch.

  • Killey

    Mega Man aside, Ace Attorney is my favorite Capcom franchise and one of my favorite in general, but I’d struggle to put it in their ‘big IP’ league.

  • Ok, but what about MH or Alpha 3? Or some old good games from the past i.e. Lost Planet, Okami and Snk v capcom.

    • Ardisan

      Ultra SF3 MAX would have been good instead of SF2 but if they port another Street Fighter game they would probably get slack for it.

      • True, but Capcom being Capcom you can’t do nothing abou that fact.

  • MagcargoMan
  • Reggie

    Works for me, I like Ace Attorney.

    • Blackbishop

      I hope they don’t tell us next year: “This is what you were waiting for! All AA games will be ported to Switch! Buy the AA collection! *excluding the ones that never came out from Japan*”.

      • Reggie

        Heck, I would still get that.

  • JJ

    They can start with Okami HD, Disney Afternoon Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection 2.
