Capcom Unsure About Porting PS4 and Xbox One Games to Switch Due to Different Direction and Play Style

Written by on    

Capcom said during its FY2016 Q2 Question and Answer Summary attended by VideoGamer it is currently looking into porting some of its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title to the Nintendo Switch. However, the company is unsure if it makes sense due to the different directions and play styles:

 “We are currently carrying out research with regards to multiplatform implementation of software for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on to the Nintendo Switch,” said Capcom.

“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.

“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.”


Nintendo Switch will launch in March 2017, with further details to be revealed in January.
