“We feel the favorable performance of the Nintendo Switch, and the impact it is having on reaffirming the status of home video game consoles, are very positive. Going forward we will support the Nintendo Switch based on our fundamental strategy of multiplatform development,” they stated.
That stated, even with the remark about supporting it by way of multiplatform sport improvement, they revealed they do intend to leverage the ’s distinctive strengths and functionality- they simply want time to judge the easiest way to do that (though you’d assume they might have figured this by now, on condition that they have been among the many first publishers to get devkits).
“Further, we are cognizant of the need to evaluate further how to best utilize the unique features of this platform, which differ from those of other home video game consoles,” they stated.
So far, Capcom has launched two video games on the Switch- Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers and Monster Hunter XX (although the latter remained in Japan solely), with Resident Evil Revelations and Revelations 2 arising shortly. What sort of additional assist they plan for the system stays to be seen.
