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.

After many years of exclusivity, Monster Hunter is no longer exclusive to Nintendo platforms. In fact, the latest major game isn’t on any Nintendo system at all. Capcom announced Monster Hunter World at E3, which currently has no sign of showing up on something like Switch.
Eurogamer did ask co-director Kaname Fujioka about the possibility of porting Monster Hunter World over to Switch in a recent interview. But unfortunately, Fujioka was naturally cagey about the subject. He instead wants to think more about the future in terms of how Monster Hunter can be adapted there.
Here’s what Fujioka had to say about Monster Hunter on Switch:

Suda51 weighs in on possible Killer7 remake

In a recent interview with GameInformer, Goichi “Suda51” Suda discusses the game designer’s “strange approach” to development. While talking about developer Grasshopper Manufacture’s other remakes, Suda51 also considers the possibility of revisiting Killer7:
The thing about Killer7 is that, right now, it’s not easy to play that game anymore right now. That’s definitely something I’d like to maybe revisit and update.
This is not the first time Suda51 has explored the idea of remaking or remastering the game. Released in 2005, Killer7 was originally planned to be a GameCube exclusive. With the upcoming Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes scheduled to be released on the Switch in 2018, might we see older Grasshopper Manufacture games see remakes on the Nintendo console in the future?
