Following the success of Ultra Street Fighter 2 on Switch, Capcom has announced quite a few titles for the hybrid console and also plans to bring more of its titles to Nintendo Switch. However, Capcom is not planning to just announce games for Switch but, is waiting to evaluate the hybrid console with the upcoming Monster Hunter XX.
In the Q&A session during the recent earnings call for Capcom, the company revealed that Nintendo Switch has been successful and they are looking forward to the increase in the console’s install base but, added that with Monster Hunter XX the company will evaluate how they want to proceed with the console.
The Nintendo Switch seems to be doing very well, and we look forward to further growth in its install base. Beginning with Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. for Japan, we are evaluating how we will support this platform in the future.
While the Capcom is looking to evaluate the hybrid console but, the studio has already announced Resident Revelations and Revelations 2 are coming to Switch later this year.
Resident Evil Revelations originally launched on the 3DS but eventually, the game made its way to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC and now it is scheduled to launch on PS4 and Xbox One on August 29, 2017. Capcom is yet to announce any specific release date for both titles on Switch.
