Capcom reported its latest financial results earlier today. In its overall outline, the company noted that Ultra Street Fighter II – the company’s first Switch game – is a “smash hit” and “made an excellent start”. At least for the time being, Capcom appears to be pleased the performance of Ultra Street Fighter II. The game shipped 450,000 copies in Q1, which was above expectations.

Perhaps due to Ultra Street Fighter II’s sales, Capcom looks to be putting in more resources towards Switch. The publisher is now “starting to prepare” multiple Switch-version titles, as relayed by Takashi Mochizuki from The Wall Street Journal.

Capcom is next bringing Monster Hunter XX to Switch in Japan on August 25. It’s unclear what plans Capcom has beyond this.
