Ultra Street Fighter II was seen by Capcom as a sort of test run for the Switch – the company has said that its sales numbers would influence their future support for the platform. The game has exceeded Capcom’s expectation, selling about 450,000 copies worldwide so far. However, it seems Capcom is not quite done testing the Switch yet. During a Q&A session at their recent financial results meeting for the past quarter, someone inquired about Capcom’s future support for the Switch given Ultra Street Fighter II’s success. Here’s what Capcom had to say:
The Nintendo Switch seems to be doing very well, and we look forward to further growth in its install base. Beginning with Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. for Japan, we are evaluating how we will support this platform in the future.

Like many other companies, Capcom also recently released its latest financial results. In the earnings report for the first quarter of the fiscal year, Capcom also touched on Ultra Street Fighter II for the Switch – the report calls the game a “smash hit” and said that it “made an excellent start”. Concrete sales figures were not provided.
While these are rather vague statements, they are positive, so apparently the game has performed to Capcom’s satisfaction. Hopefully this means more support from them for the Switch.

Ultra Street Fighter II – tech analysis and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix comparison
DigitalFoundry is back with its latest analysis focusing on Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The full rundown is in the video below.
Key highlights are that the game runs in native 1080p while the Way of the Hado mode has some dips below 60 frames per second. Compared to last-gen’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, character portraits, the versus screen, and character select screen have been reworked to more closely match the original game, but Ultra Street Fighter II oddly has static backgrounds with the new style.

Capcom COO: Praise for the Switch, will see how to support the system while looking at Ultra Street Fighter II

Japanese business publication Toyo Keizai published an interview with Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto today (thanks to NeoGAF users CalmMind and zeromcd73 for the translation) . Among other things, the interview was about the Switch. Tsujimoto praised the system and its unique selling point – he talked about how his primary school-age daughter, who has never wanted a home console before, now wants a Switch. He also said that developing games that users want to play is crucial – in the DS & Wii era, third party developers were initially struggling with making compelling games that make use of a system’s unique features. Nintendo had to lead the way, essentially, and show other developers how to make games that fit the hardware.
Tsujimoto also briefly talked about Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers on the Switch. He stated that Capcom will think of how to support the Switch while observing how Ultra Street Fighter II does on the system. Of course, this could be interpreted in a lot of ways, though one would hope that the sales of a remake won’t be the only factor Capcom takes into consideration for their future support of the system.
