Leading publisher and developer Capcom has said that it’s uncertain about the viability of bringing Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases to the Nintendo Switch. The company says that it wants to make games which are best suited to Nintendo Switch due to the system’s uniqueness rather than dump ports on the platform. Capcom also questioned the viability of other companies bringing their Xbox One and PlayStation 4 games to the system.
“We are currently carrying out research with regards to multiplatform implementation of software for PS4 and Xbox One on to the Nintendo Switch,” it said. “However, we do feel that there are differences in the desired direction and the play-style of the Nintendo Switch and those of the PS4 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 endeavour 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.”
