Capcom Considering To Make More DS Games

By Spencer . February 24, 2009 . 11:00am

aap Times our tough. That’s the general message from Capcom’s Q&A conference call for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009. Is Capcom shaking in their boots? Not really.


They are sticking to their home console focus, hoping Monster Hunter 3 garners international acclaim, and possibly releasing more Nintendo DS games besides new installments of Ace Attorney.


“There is no significant change in Capcom’s strategy, and we will primarily release game titles for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. In addition, we plan to release our leading titles overseas to acquire game users, as the overseas market for Wii is extensive.


One of our leading titles is ‘Monster Hunter 3 (tri-).’ If we can gain recognition of this product in the European and North American markets, our market strategy will see a noticeable change. Meanwhile, we are reviewing the possibility of releasing new titles besides ‘Ace Attorney’ for Nintendo DS.”


While many Japanese publishers release a deluge of Nintendo DS games mega publisher Capcom only released four Nintendo DS games in Japan last year. That number includes the two versions of Mega Man: Star Force 3. Really, we’re talking about three unique games. Capcom can make more Nintendo DS games than that.

    Capcom’s DS support has been weaker than their GBA support honestly. I’d really like to see them release MegaMan 9 for DSiWare and some fighter ports (Vampire Chronicle, SFA3Max, 3rd Strike, etc) with WFC play.

      yeah, Megaman 9 would feel right at home on a mobile platform.

        It really seems like a no-brainer. They should do a PSP version via PSN too.

    “considering”? … OMFG! … WTF… hell… I really have nothing else to say, consider me speechless to learn at the same time that they have nothing in the works and that they’re still thinking about doing something about it (lol?) let’s hope their Wii support isn’t going the same unexplainable way.

    That’s awesome, I remember when the DS and PSP launched Capcom was a really heavy supporter of the PSP. It’s nice to see them planning to give the DS some more attention now.

    Need more Ace Attorney games and of course original stuff..
    It would be interesting if they made the team that made the Phoenix Wright Series make something new original (adventure game)

      They did that stock trader game, but it tanked iirc.

      • Ah, Kabu Trader Shun. An interesting concept, but it never caught on in Japan.

  • One of our leading titles is ‘Monster Hunter 3 (tri-).’ If we can gain recognition of this product in the European and North American markets

    Wait what? Did they confirm MH3 for NA Wii while I was blinking? I don’t remember this at all.

    • lostinblue

      they confirmed it now, they refused to do so earlier. (but we knew it was coming anyway)

    • Huh, I didn’t even realize this was the first official conformation of Monster Hunter 3. Capcom always seemed like they were going to localize it since they showed it off to international press. I’ll post an update now…

    dungeons and dragons arcade I and II collection with wi fi ftw


    • That would be awesome… but Atari has the D&D license now. There are games actually like the Dungeons & Dragons arcade games released by IGS in arcades. I really should write about those one day.

      • Happy Gamer

        wow i never knew about those two facts. altho i remember atari released the xbox one i think? and i didn’t know they had arcade games like that. you def should write about it when you have time!

    I’m not sure if this is a crazy idea, being a huge Gyakuten Saiban/Phoenix Wright fan, I would really love a console installment on the Wii w/ nice sprites and voice overs, blown up on TV.. they always tease us w/ the full dialogue in the trailers, or in that special DS spoof 8-min footage..
