Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is just a couple of weeks out from arriving on Switch. If you need a refresher on some of the features included in the package, check out the handy fact sheet below.

Monster Hunter XX - Nintendo Switch

Capcom reported its financial results today for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018. As the company has said in previous reports, its original Switch games sold well. Monster Hunter XX and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers both “enjoyed hit status”.

In November, Capcom confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter II had shipped 500,000 copies worldwide. Monster Hunter XX managed to exceed shipments of 350,000 units.


Nintendo wasn’t the only company to report its financial results today. Capcom shared its own data and information about its performance for the nine month period ended December 31.

According to Capcom, Monster Hunter XX for Switch “performed strongly”. The company also said that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was “a smash hit.”

Capcom says that its net sales decreased to 47,740 million yen (down 10.8% year-over-year). However, operating income increased to 7,009 million yen (up 36.9% year-over-year), ordinary income increased to 7,099 million yen (up 71.2% year-over-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent increased to 4,439 million yen (up 60.7% year-over-year).


Capcom provided its latest financial results today, and revealed new data for both Ultra Street Fighter II and Monster Hunter XX for Switch.

Capcom once again that Ultra Street Fighter II was “a smash hit”. The game has shipped 500,000 copies worldwide thus far.

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.
