Capcom on the possibility of more Street Fighter titles for Switch, views system as “important platform for all types of games”
Capcom isn’t ruling out more Street Fighter games for Switch. In a recent interview with USgamer, series producer Yoshinori Ono said the company “would consider” Nintendo’s console if there’s “another opportunity that makes sense for us”. Ono also indicated that Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection were financially successful.
Ono also has a positive outlook when it comes to Switch overall. Capcom views the system “as an important platform for all types of games,” he said.
Ono shared the following when asked for his thoughts about Switch in terms of Street Fighter and fighting games in general:
“Since the Switch came out, we’ve released Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for that platform. From a business standpoint, these two titles were a success. We are seeing many competitive titles, including Smash Bros., doing well on Switch and players are enjoying those types of experiences on that platform. If there is another opportunity that makes sense for us, we would consider the Switch again. Regarding Street Fighter 5, it is currently exclusive to PS4 and PC. However, as mentioned above, we do see Switch as an important platform for all types of games.”
