Capcom says Switch is important for multiplatform games, not saying if exclusive titles are in the works

Posted on November 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Capcom commented a bit more on Switch stemming from its latest financial results. The company said that Switch is important as one outlet for multiplatform games. However, Capcom wouldn’t say if any exclusive projects are in the works.

The Wall Street Journal recently obtained a comment from Capcom in which a spokeswoman said releasing older games on a new console is not unusual for third-parties since there isn’t enough time to develop new titles within a year of its launch. Capcom has thus far released Monster Hunter XX for Switch in Japan, and will be bringing the Resident Evil Revelations games to the system this month around the world.

    Yes but no one needs you Crapcom.

    • Hansel Gunarto

      Yes we need them unless they can finally smart enough to decide putting some efforts and porting some crucial titles on switch.

      • Xiarno

        They bring Okami on the PS4 & OneX even tough, bringing Okami to the Switch would be absolutely BRILLANT idea ! Seing how Okami is playable, putting it on the switch is litterally PERFECT.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Look at how many 3DSs were sold because of MonHun thought.

      • Strawman

        And even with the millions of them out there, it’s only a guess if they’ll bring XX over to the system as a last farewell.

    • Paddy Alfan

      thats what i said to my missus after my 5th child born!

    • ECM

      I hate to agree w/ this but, outside of Monster Hunter, you’re basically correct, and that’s only particularly important in Japan.

    • TruExtent

      Street Fighter, Monster Hunter, Resident Evil, Marvel vs Capcom, Ace Attorney, Mega Man, hell I’ll even throw in Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe cause I like ’em. I’d say we need Capcom around. But we also need them to put some more focus in their other franchises. Or make some more original games like Remember Me (fantastic game btw). They have the talent there. I want Capcom to stick around.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        No. We don’t need Capcom. We need Capcom’s IPs to go to a more worthy company(most likely Nintendo) and finally give them the justice that they deserve. Capcom themselves can suck it(or continue to from Sony) and die off.

      • Xiarno

        Okami ! you forgot Okami ! ;(

        • TruExtent

          Thought I was forgetting another one… I still need to go back and finish either my Wii copy or the PS3 HD version I got in a bundle.

    • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

      I want capcom games on switch right now!
      Please bring MHW, please bring Marvel Vs Capcom. Please bring all your IPs capcom, come on!
      I’m playing MHXX in Japanese because capcom won’t even translate it!

      • Xiarno

        You forgot Okami ;(

    • Killey

      I’m not buying a Switch until it gets a new Ace Attorney game.

      • Kamiyouni

        Switch would be perfect, they could really utilize the joycons. Mainly slamming the desks and pointing.

    • Waldo

      We need them for Monster Hunter games tho :<

  • Jack Bankhead

    Uh huh… Capcom helps in the designing of the actual system ITSELF, says they will support the Switch, sees actually pretty good sales for Ultra Street Fighter II, says it’s too expensive to port multiplatform games, now says it’s key?

    Make up your mind, jeez!

    • RoadyMike

      The last 2 aren’t really mutually exclusive. Getting multiplats on the Switch is important but doesn’t mean it isn’t still expensive to do so

      Still bs when the Switch isn’t getting some of these smaller titles tho like the Disney collection.

    • Snackster1001

      This is just typical modern capcom; always making up excuses for bad decisions. I lost hope when they called staple marvel characters like Wolverine and Magneto “functions”.

  • Stuart

    Capcom: “Switch is very important for multiplatform games…

    …oh no,we are not porting any multiplat,I’m just saying…”

    • Strawman

      So important, that many of our recent games that would fit perfectly, aren’t coming at all.

    • Aline Piroutek

      “We’re porting Revelations Collection, be happy”
      “Switch owners don’t want Megaman Legacy Collection 1+2 on the go”

    • Aline Piroutek

      Epic comment

  • Ragnell

    Just localize mhxx please so i can hunt with friends on my tv again.

    • Aline Piroutek

      I’m happy just with the option to play on TV when I want.

      • Ragnell

        And yet here we are abandoned with pur 3ds grankless version

  • Locky Mavo

    Monster Hunter, Okami, the RE remakes, the Disney and Mega Man collections, all mutiplatform titles bar the Switch. If it’s so important for multiplatform games then why the hell aren’t any of your multiplatform games coming to the Switch Capcom?! Man they’ve been talking a lot of BS lately.

  • Man

    Yeah just keep making poor excuses you bunch of skunks.

  • Strawman

    So, Capcom, save for Resident Evil, what ARE you releasing? Megaman Collection is multiplatform, but not on Switch. Disney Afternoon Collection is multiplatform, but not for Switch and Ni No Kuni is multiplatform, except for, wait for it: Switch!

    So where are the actions to back up your words?

    • RoadyMike

      Remember how Wii U was gonna have “strong and unprecedented” 3rd party support? Or how Ubisoft “pledged” to bring their games to Wii U?

      Yea I’m not believing what these devs say in their bs PR spiel anymore. We need something concrete like an actual game announcement form them

      • Strawman

        In that regard, gotta give kudos to Bethesda’s support on Switch.

        • RoadyMike

          All we need now is Fallout and Switch will have most of Bethesda’s heaviest hitting series on the Switch

          • Strawman

            Dishonored could arguably do well, can put a collection of both on it.

      • jimmy

        Ubisoft did actually support the WiiU, they did have a good line-up

        • RoadyMike

          Indeed but there were games coming out at that time that never came to the Wii U like South Park, Far Cry and the missing Tom Clancy and Assasin’s Creed games from that time.

        • Stuart

          They supported well at first,but jumps off very quickly. Fair to say that majority of third parties also jump off as fast as they could however. But their decision on the Wii U port of Watch Dogs were a disaster,they totally send that game to die on Wii U.

      • Paddy Alfan

        ubisoft is the good guy here . theyre the only third parties that still supporting both wii and wii u. nobody cares that much, not even nintendo. wheres nintendo first party for wii??

        • RoadyMike

          Supporting them with what? Just Dance? That’s the lowest bar you can set as far as 3rd party support goes
          Wii’s over dude. Both of them. Why would Nintendo support dead systems?

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Nintendo Wii U was supposed to get exclusive Rayman Legends until they screwed Nintendo over, I believe same with ZombiU?

          • RoadyMike

            Pretty much. But I didn’t mention it because technically those games still made it to the system. So much for being exclusives tho

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Yeah.

      • JJ

        Especially EA.

      • Jaxon Holden

        Well, let’s not pretend Ubisoft didn’t bring like 7 different games to Wii U, even when the system was long written off. Even EA brought 4 titles. You can’t blame them for bailing on that ” unprecedented partnership” because the system was tanking and nobody was buying the games.

        Here the system is actually selling really well and Capcom’s games are selling really well. I get peoples frustrations but sometimes people like to glaze over the facts a little

        • RoadyMike

          Oh nono, I’m it saying they didn’t. They just jumped ship relatively soon. It’s almost giving them too much credit, it’s like they weren’t even there

    • NepNep52

      Ni No Kuni is Bandai Namco…

      • Strawman

        Adjusted the post, happy now?

  • Exy

    THE EVALUATION SHALL CONTINUE.

    • SpectralDynamite

      PREPARE FOR THE 5-YEAR LONG DISSERTATION RESEARCH PERIOD!

    • Princess_Eevee9

      D-DID WE PAST THE INSPECTION YET?!?

  • Roto Prime

    Forgiveness if you give me Dragon’s Dogma Dark Arisen Switch!!!!

  • theFooFighter

    Oh cool I can’t wait to play mh world, okami, re7 and dragon’s dogma on the switch

  • So if multiplats are so important for the Switch Capcom then where in the hell is Monster Hunter World, Resident Evil 4: Switch Edition, Resident Evil 7, Life Is Strange, Street Fighter 5, Megaman Collection 1 & 2, Disney Afternoon Collection, Dead Rising 4, the localisation for MHXX, & the underwhelming Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite? Man you guys are full of it

    • CilverKid520_Youtube_Twitch

      Agree agree but Life is Strange is Square Enix. Not Capcom.

    • theFooFighter

      They can keep MVC

    • Ardisan

      They can keep MvC and SFV, those games look awful js

      • Jaxon Holden

        Marvel vs Capcom is amazing. Make no mistake, I’d kill to have that game on Switch

        • Ardisan

          Sorry forgot to specify, *MvC:I. I actually like MvC 1, 2, and kinda 3.

  • CilverKid520_Youtube_Twitch

    Then stop being a hoe for Sony and put your money where your mouth is. Bring over Megaman Collection, Capcom vs Marvel 3 ultimate, Monster Hunter World, Okami HD, and Street Fighter V. Show you mean buisness and we’ll show you the money.

    • GoldenTriforce

      I mean SFV is an exclusive.

  • Hansel Gunarto

    1. Capcom releasing a nobody-knows-which-sequence-of-sf2-is-this into nintendo switch, along with cloned characters (they call it new though), copy pasted dialogues from sf4 (they call it new though), copy pasted graphics from ssf2hd (they call it new HD graphics)
    2. Capcom prices their “ULTRA-MILKED” title for 40$
    3. Capcom says their decision of Switch support relies on USF2 sales
    4. Capcom says USF2 is a SMASH HIT! (I dunno if they made up their sad stories or what)
    5. Capcom blames time for their slow Switch development
    6. Capcom says Switch is important, but sorry no exclusive titles for it

    Do you realize how joke the company is?

  • GoldenTriforce

    What? A new handheld is selling super well? Exclusives? Nah….

  • Stuart

    Capcom also updated their Switch numbers: USFII shipped half a million and MHXX shipped 350k. Both above expectation and said MHXX was “performed strongly” and once again called USFII a smash hit.

    The audience is there,if Capcom doesn’t move on fast they will get even more mad and get away.

    • Strawman

      “Both above expectation and said MHXX was “performed strongly” And that’s being relegated to Japan alone. They can get a ton more by localizing it, but it’d probably get in the way of World.

    • R.Z.

      I wonder about MH XX.
      Compared to the 3DS versions the numbers are laughable, but maybe it’s more accurate to compare it to the HD ports.
      It did worse than the portable 3rd PS3 port it seems, but maybe it still has the chance to show some legs.
      Dunno, just wish they released it in the west.

      • Jaxon Holden

        It was a port of a 6 month old expansion of a 2 year old game, releasing on a system with just 2 million users in Japan. , And it’s shipped 350k, PLUS digital. The game is fast approaching half a million if you combine the two, and keep in mind this was the 3rd time selling this same game in a 2 year period. There’s only so many times people will buy the same game.

        That’s absolutely phenomenal. Just imagine how much a brand new exclusive game would sell… probably 1.5 million minimum… and that’s just in Japan. Another million in the west. And the system hasn’t even reached 10 million global sales yet.

  • Amethyst Gaze

    I expect nothing from Capcom.

  • NepNep52

    Not only do actions speak louder than words, but these words do not match up with said actions. Unless they got a ton of announcements to make at the next Direct, I’m not expecting much from them.

    • Strawman

      The next direct is the Xenoblade direct, so take a moment to consider that you’ve already got your answer.

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        Didn’t you know? Any and all directs must always have a Smash reveal. It’s doctrine.

        • Strawman

          Still looking for that Smash hit I see.

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Punnys.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    I swear, they have got to be saying stupid nonsense on purpose just to stay in the news. Any publicity good publicity I guess, but seriously? Ah well here’s to another 200+ Comment section.

  • Tlink7

    I don’t care about exclusives, just bring everything to the Switch

    • Aline Piroutek

      Exclusives are to people say “Hi, you cannot play this game, BWAHAHAHAHAHA”

      • Strawman

        Exclusives are anti-consumer, while also being a sad reality of the industry, and, very frequently, a, if not THE main reason a system sells (Mario Odyssey bundle). Xbox One X is trying to convince people that they’re the best place to play third-party games with it’s power and 4K proposition. The Switch is differentiating itself via hybrid setup, and the PS4 is playing the old game with MS still.

        At the end of the day, exclusives are key, especially to Nintendo. They have far more exclusives than any others.

        • Aline Piroutek

          Even if Odyssey were on the other consoles, I would buy the Switch version because it has portability for the same price as other the other versions.

          • Strawman

            And others would buy the other versions for the power the systems they’re on provides.

  • Aiddon

    Then start putting games on it

  • Wanderlei

    They missed the boat and are kicking themselves. Question is, do they double down on their stupidity or turn it around.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      “I’ll take Double Down on Stupidity for 500$ Alex!”

    • SpectralDynamite

      I’ve been laughing this for 2 minutes now.

  • Radish

    Capcom doesn’t like money. They will snap out of it after Switch outsells PS4 this holiday.

  • Snackster1001

    Capcom, it’s not that hard. Literally just release your smaller titles that are GUARENTEED to sell to nintendo fans (megaman legacy collections, disney afternoon block, okami port) and you’ll have a new console to rake revenue from. These are just lazy excuses, and the fact that you made TWO PORTS (one of which is a game over 20 years old and the other exclusive to only one region) your testing ground for a new console is a joke. Shoutout to Bethesda for showing what support truly is.

    • Shane

      I just hope people support those Bethesda games

  • JJ

    Ok, then where’s: Disney Afternoon Collection, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, Okami HD and Monster Hunter??

  • TruExtent

    I don’t really see how Capcom not giving us exclusives is a bad thing like I’m seeing in the rest of the comments. If they give us an exclusive, that’s a cool bonus. But we’ve seen even when they gave Xbox Dead Rising that it was only for a limited time. The game is making it’s way to PS4 later. I say it’s good if we get the multiplats. Switch will allow for the easy portable and TV experience, PS4 and XBONE can offer a higher quality easy TV only experience (and even better for those getting the Pro consoles) and finally PC can offer the highest quality experience possible. Every option has it’s advantages and disadvantages. I think it gives the consumer a better choice on how they want to play and makes for healthy competition in the industry.

    Even if the Switch does get a Capcom exclusive (sans it uses a Nintendo property like the old handheld Capcom Zeldas) who’s to say it won’t get ported later? RE Revelations was a 3DS exclusive at one point if you remember. I don’t see anyone having a problem with the numerous ports of that game. And will people get mad if USFII gets put on other platforms eventually? I don’t think so.

  • JasonBall

    So much silly drama.

  • Pepperkeet

    All we want from you Capcom is Monster Hunter
    everything else you can die in a fire for all we care 😉

  • fox_whisper85

    Capcom can suck themselves silly for all I care.

  • R.Z.

    Sure sure … so why aren’t you even releasing the multiplatform games, C(r)apcom ?
