One of the biggest mysteries regarding next year’s Nintendo Switch is what kind of third-party support it will receive, seeing as Nintendo’s consoles have lacked it for many years now. We know that plenty of developers are on board, but whether not they stay on board is the big question. While we likely won’t have that answer until the console is out and we can see how well it is selling, there’s at least one company who is currently in the process of figuring out how to bring its current games over to Nintendo’s new console.
The company in question is Capcom, who recently held its latest earnings Q&A. During it they were asked about bringing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One games over to the Nintendo Switch, and they replied with the following:
“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.”
Nintendo Switch is set to launch in March of next year, though we’ll be getting further information on price and specs in January.
