Capcom Will Make Their Games Available On 3DS eShop In The West


Christian Svensson, Capcom’s corporate Officer and Senior Vice-President, has announced via the Capcom Unity forums that the company’s Nintendo 3DS titles will soon be available to purchase on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Svensson told forum goers that further details will follow when they are closer to release. Will you be picking up Capcom games on the Nintendo 3DS eShop?

“Many of our our other previously released 3DS titles will be coming to the eShop in the coming months. Details to follow when we’re closer to release.”

“But as discussed, for the most part we’re looking at what’s coming next, not what’s come previously.”


    1. Capcom can no longer make that game, due to the expiration of Capcom and Tatsunoko’s deal a couple months ago.

  1. I wish they could put something Okami related in there. I know there hasn’t been a 3DS release, but I can dream.

  2. So that mean’s on the eShop we’ll be getting Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and Resident Evil: Revelations and in the future we’ll have Ace Attorney 5, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter 4.

    1. Those bastards have still not said whether they are localizing the Lost planet Spin off – E.X troopers. It looks the same as the ps3 game albeit with a low res and in 3D. One of the best looking 3DS games and it’s a shooter , for that reason alone i want it…

      1. Maybe cause Nintendo has alowed certain retail games to come dl only maybe capcom got more incentive to bring it after all the just need to port it and put it on the shop.

      2. They already confirmed a long time ago that they aren’t bringing it to the west. Something about the costs of translating all the text.

      3. Yea but if they dont make the physical and released only on eshop they save tons of money.

  3. I guess were being forced to download the games instead of getting the physical copy, but atleast It’s better than nothing….

  4. depends on what games are being released. If it’s the X collection then yes, I’ll get acquire the games; if it’s a game that I already have then no.

  5. Megaman battle network! please do it! i dont want to use my ds lite, i love the backwards compatibilty of it, but my L and R buttons don’t work so it’s hard for me to play them
