Capcom Preparing To Bring Multiple Titles To Nintendo Switch
With the success of Nintendo’s hybrid console, Nintendo Switch has been getting a lot of attention from third party publishers and developers. Capcom is one of the dozens of third-party partners of Nintendo for Switch and recently the company revealed that Ultra Street Fighter 2 for Switch is a “smash hit” and it seems that the studio is planning to bring more games to the console.
According to Wall Street Journal writer, Takashi Mochizuki, Ultra Street Fighter 2 for Nintendo Switch sold 450,000 copies which is higher than Capcom’s expectations. Mochizuki added that Capcom is preparing to bring its multiple titles to Nintendo Switch.
However, Capcom is not the only one looking to bring more of its titles to Switch as Ubisoft will be announcing more games for the hybrid console soon. During the company’s recent quarterly financial conference, Ubisoft has revealed that the company is looking to bring more of its games to Nintendo Switch other than the already announced ones.
Also, there are other third-party games, like WWE 2K18 and FIFA 18, will release for the hybrid console this fall. Also, developers have assured that WWE 2K18 for Switch will not be based on last-gen consoles as FIFA 18 will be.
Switch is starting to get in the good graces of third-party devs and publishers which is hardly surprising since the console has shipped 4.7 million units till June 30. Also, the software sales for the hybrid console, they stand at 13.60 million units of which 3.92 million units were Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and 3.54 million units were Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
However, according to the industry analyst, Michael Pachter, Switch’s the $300 price tag and light software slate will not be very helpful compared to other major consoles in the market.
