During its latest shareholders meeting, Capcom was asked about its impressions regarding Switch. The company responded by pointing out that Monster Hunter XX is available, and that it intends to “continue developing other titles for this platform in the future.”

One tweet that has been making the rounds on Japanese blogs is from Twitter user koudaiseidaos, who supposedly attended the shareholders meeting. This person notes that Monster Hunter World isn’t going to be happening on Switch, but Capcom supposedly wants to continue with the franchise on the console and have future plans for it. This does not appear to be documented on Capcom’s website (including the official Q&A transcript from the latest meeting), however, so we’d advise taking that message with a grain of salt.

In terms of what’s been officially announced, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 drops on Switch next month. Okami HD and the western version of Monster Hunter XX follow in August. Lastly, Mega Man 11 launches in October.

Capcom shared a new video this week delving into the creation of Mega Man 11. Earlier in the week, the company spoke about how the design for Mega Man himself was made.

Here’s the full rundown, courtesy of Siliconera:

As far as we know, Japan is the only region where Okami HD is having a physical release on Switch. Thankfully, you can import the game, and we’re now hearing that English will be a supported language option. That isn’t overly surprising given Capcom’s handling of other Switch titles, but the confirmation is reassuring.

Play-Asia currently has pre-orders open for the physical version of Okami HD on Switch. You can reserve the standard release here or limited edition with a soundtrack CD here.

Capcom brought Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version to Switch in Japan last month. Like the name implies, it operates entirely through the cloud. You connect online and data is transmitted while you play – almost nothing is downloaded to Switch directly aside from the main app.

In the future, Capcom could bring more cloud games to Switch. A spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal that it will decide whether to expand its offerings in that area after assessing the performance of Resident Evil 7 Cloud Version.

Mega Man 11 is the first core entry in the series since 2010. How do you come back to the series and where do you start? That’s something producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya addressed in a new interview with Polygon.

On the topic of how the team got started, Tsuchiya mentioned:

This information comes from Mega Man 11 producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya and director Koji Oda…

Capcom has much more expansive plans for the Switch edition of Okami HD in Japan. Even though the game will only be receiving a digital release in the west (unless a different decision is made within the next few months), Japan will have access to a physical version.

That includes a limited edition featuring a soundtrack CD with 22 pieces of music. Pre-orders are now open on Play-Asia here.

We also want to again stress that the Japanese version of Okami HD is not confirmed to include English. However, based on precedent, we do believe it’s likely. Capcom should confirm which languages are included closer to release, so stay tuned.
