Capcom has announced that they are “starting to prepare” more Nintendo Switch games, in response to the success that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers saw on the portable home console.
The Nintendo Switch exclusive fighter has sold more than 450,000 copies worldwide, a number that Capcom explained was above their expectations.
That’s according to The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki, who had shared: “Capcom: 450K is 1Q figure for Ultra Street Fighter II, above its expectation. Also ‘starting to prepare’ multiple Switch-version titles.”
There had been confusion at E3 2017 around whether Capcom plans to localise Monster Hunter XX for a western release, first being ruled out in an interview after which the company turned to Twitter to clarify that they “have not announced any plans to localise Monster Hunter XX at this time.”
With Capcom wanting to heavily push Monster Hunter World on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, they may instead choose to turn their attention to other properties such as Resident Evil, Ace Attorney, and Mega Man.
It was certainly surprising when it was announced that Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 and Disney Afternoon Collection weren’t to see release on Nintendo Switch. Although, as always, we will have to wait and see what they choose to surprise us with.
