Capcom recently made some comments about developing for the Nintendo Switch. The company updated its investors relations website with its official stance on making games for the console, as well as well as their thoughts on developing multiplatform titles on the Switch.
In regards to their stance on making games for the Switch, Capcom had this to say in response:
“It is excellent to have the market invigorated with new hardware launches. As a software publisher, we endeavor 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.”
When asked if they thought it was possible to develop multiplatform titles on the Switch, Capcom said this:
“We are currently carrying out research with regards to multiplatform implementation of software for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on to the Nintendo Switch and thus are unable to comment at this moment. However, 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.”
The Nintendo Switch is slated to release in March 2017.
