Capcom ‘Carrying Out Research’ Regarding Games for Nintendo Switch

Capcom are the latest video game developer/publisher to speak more about their plans for the Nintendo Switch. Albeit in rather vague and non-concrete language. When asked about Nintendo’s new upcoming console during their latest quarterly fiscal year Q&A — specifically on whether they had any plans to support the new system — Capcom replied by stating the company were currently “carrying out research” as to potential multi-platform implementation of their games for the Switch alongside PS4 & Xbox One.

They added: “We do feel that there are differences in the desired direction and the play-style of the Nintendo Switch and those of the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. At Capcom, we determine which platform to release a title for after considering the features of both our software and the hardware in question, believing we must bring the enjoyment of our games to their maximum potential.

“As a software publisher, we endeavour to develop games that offer enjoyment best suited to each piece of hardware’s features and target users. Following first party, in order to introduce our own content we are currently moving forward with internal planning and analysis as a partner company.”

Little is known about the Nintendo Switch’s true graphical and all-round performance capabilities (aside from it housing a “custom” Nvidia Tegra chip) and it would seem — judging by this latest ambiguous statement — that nothing has been set in stone just yet as to any potential third-party software coming over to the Nintendo Switch. Least not from Capcom. We should hopefully know more of the Switch when further details are expected to be unveiled next January.
