Capcom Now Says It Will Examine Monster Hunter XX Switch Sales To See What Support To Give Platform

Capcom has said that it will be looking closely at sales of the forthcoming Monster Hunter XX on the Nintendo Switch to see how they will support the platform in the future. Fans need not be worried though as the game is clearly going to sell a lot of units in Japan and no doubt Nintendo will have to create more hardware to keep up with the demand. Here’s what Capcom had to say about Nintendo Switch support in the future.

‘The Nintendo Switch seems to be doing very well, and we look forward to further growth in its install base. Beginning with Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. for Japan, we are evaluating how we will support this platform in the future’.

    1. They KNOW that Japanese games don’t sell on XBox and they they KNOW that MH sells like crazy on Nintendo handhelds, yet besides PS4 they announced MH World for XBox One and not Switch. Fucking hypocrites!

      1. They weren’t allowed to release on Switch. If they wanted to release on Switch they would have had to do it outside of Japan due to the PS4 Japan exclusivity clause Which would have lost them their Japan consumer base.

      2. To be fair, MH Worlds was in development years before Capcom knew about the Switch. I’d imagine Capcom started development about halfway through the Wii U’s life cycle. The PS4 has sold over 60 million console, you can’t blame a company for trying to take advantage of that. The Xbox 1 version is just an easy port.

      1. Underetimating what? Having no games? What do you have after mario? A couple of 2d platformers and fire emblem? Metroid, no release year, pokemon, no release year. The only game you guys will play is the waiting game and a few wii u ports.

      2. Asshole please… you’re still losing. If you just look at the fucking list, you’re already admitting defeat. Secondly, Mario wasn’t on the list for the Nintendo Switch yet. “Having no games”? You’re still blind as a bat. Even Stevie Wonder can see it better than you! You’re just talking out of your ass. The couple of 2D platformers were Blaster Master Zero and and Shovel Knight. You’re also fucking ignoring THREE-D platformers that are coming up later this year and beyond. Fire Emblem was just announced for 2018 and right now Koei Tecmo is working on Fire Emblem Warriors. The games we are waiting on for the Switch are Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids, Bandai Namco and The Pokemon Company’s Pokken Tournament DX, possible GOTY nominee Super Mario Odyssey, Skyrim, Take Two’s NBA 2K18 and WWE 2K18, Skyrim, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. You still mad and jelly? Good… now piss off!

For a gaming fan you sure are limiting yourself rather stupidly.

Im not limiting myself at all. I dont like the switch but liked the wii u. I will never give nintendo my money for those shitty joy cons. Then there’s the anti consumer pos nintendo fanboys that tell you to shell out even more money just to get a decent controller. I dont expect the switch to do much better than the gamecube.

People didn’t know what would sell the Switch after BotW came out either expecting it to slump until Mario but look what happened. Nintendo is making all the right moves here (shitty voice chat notwithstanding).

Online is also crap compared to the competition. Sorry but they have no right to charge the same price as the ps4. They have the ignorance to charge for online after how badly the wii u flopped.

        And there you go again about third parties. You’re only disappointing yourself if you expect big AAA games to come to a poratable. What you should expect are games like the 3DS got but obviously with a higher budget.

    2. Nintendo has so much hype infused into it’s customers due to the Zelda port, Mario and Splatoon. It’s going to take a WiiU caliber drought ton damage the Switch’s momentum at this point.

      I’m with you on most of your arguments, but we can’t deny the fact that the Nintendo Hype Train will not be easily derailed after the high they got off Zelda. They only need one solid game every couple months to keep their fans energized enough to stay on board, so IDK, I think the switch is going to hold steady at least through the rest of the year.

        All jokes aside if Capcom wanted to see their sales rise they should take their thumbs out of asses, stop dickin around and localize MHXX in the west. That’s the least they can do for Nintendo fans who supported their games on Nintendo’s platform.

    3. Three really awful ideas.

      Option 1 is a waste of money. The profit in running a platform is in getting licensing fees from other games launching on your platform. That’s the whole point. First party titles exist to create the install base which sells the platform to third parties.

      Option 2 is a losing battle. Nintendo being much smaller than Sony or Microsoft can’t procure high end equipment at the same cost per unit, since they can’t safely invest that heavily into product. Sony and Microsoft, being propped up by other departments (since they aren’t game companies), can sell their consoles at a loss to buy market share. Nintendo can’t. Under this model, they get buried in pricing and die as a company in a generation or two.

      Option 3 has an argument for it, but there’s no cause to do so any time in the future. The Switch is on the rise, Nintendo’s always had at least one active platform that’s profitable, and Sony and Microsoft are bleeding cash right now. Nintendo as a company is in a much better long term position than either of the other two. If anyone should abandon hardware, it’s Microsoft, who’s 1/3 in making successful consoles, and like 1/12 for electronics hardware in general.

    6. You don’t expect the Switch to do much better than the Gamecube? Now your just hating. I was actually with you about it not having any games. So far in four months BotW is the only game I have for the system. The next one will be Xenoblade and Mario, but Xenoblade is going to be delayed 100%… No question about it. I know Nintendo too well. So yea, the first year of the Switches life has been a letdown for me….

      But back to your original comment about the Switch selling like the Gamecube… Don’t be ridiculous.. The system has already sold over 5 million units in 4 months. With the holiday season it’s likely to sale another 5 million before the end of the year. So 10 million in the first year, which is about half of the Gamecubes lifetime sales… The Switch will probably sale between 50-70 million lifetime. Probably more than that honestly… Don’t let your emotions cloud your reason.

    WiiU did not get to launch with a new Zelda.
    Not only did Switch get Zelda, it got the Zelda that Nintendo used most of the WiiU’s life to build. So yeah, the cards were heavily stacked against WiiU.

    For those of us that play Zelda on WiiU, the Switch is exactly in the same situation the WiiU was in, which is why we feel it is a waste.

    For those that bought the Zelda as a Switch port, they view the switch from a totally different perspective, because they have an awesome launch game. So they see Switch through “Zelda Goggles.”

    The Nintendo Civil War will be around a long time, but I am not blind to the fact that whether I like it or not, whether WiiU got fucked by Nintendo or not, what happened, happened, and Switch has better footing, even if it is because it’s standing on the corpse of the WiiU and it’s games.

    1. Wii U got fucked by the market, not Nintendo. Nintendo put Zelda on the Switch so the market wouldn’t fuck them again and rightly so. Zelda still got put on the Wii U for fans that didn’t want a Switch yet could still be happy. Another right move. Even taking away Zelda the Switch has a very good lineup of games as we go into the holidays. Much better than the Wii U had in its first 7-8 months.

        Everyone fucked over the Wii U:

        1. Nintendo for not doing a damn thing to fix things like a price cut, a stronger model, shitty marketing. Instead, they let the poor thing sink further & further while the 3DS got the price cut, a stronger model, & better marketing.

        2. 3rd parties for giving up too quickly as they barely tried with Wii U exclusives. Even some of their ports were done badly with not enough exclusive content. In Mass Effect 3’s case, they released the Mass Effect Trilogy on the other systems for the same price that Mass Effect 3 was going for on the Wii U. In the case of EA, they threw a little bitch fit because Nintendo turned down their Origin as Wii U’s internet infrastructure.

        3. Some of us fans. Instead of demanding the things Nintendo didn’t do, we kept making excuses for the Wii U like “Oh Mario Kart 8 will save it!” “Smash will save it!” Blah, blah, blah!

        We all failed the Wii U. End of story.

      4. At a certain point, about, say, 2014-15, the Wii U was a sinking ship that couldn’t be saved. Nintendo went hard on hoping third parties would fill gaps in the release schedule and that never panned out. They realized this and made it so their next system had a better chance obeing supported by themselves, thus came the birth of the Switch’s hybrid nature.

  2. What the actual heck, they said that Street Fighter 2 would determine if develop more games for Switch and now they’re saying that MHXX will determine it! I’m sure it’ll sell well over in Japan, but MHXX is still gonna be overshadowed by World, so it might not sell as well. This a bad move on Capacom’s part, there’s a reason why they’re not doing so hot outside of Street Fighter and Monster Hunter.

    1. Any developer that says that they will base future development off the sales of a single game is pretty ignorant anyways. Just because game (a. didn’t sell very well doesn’t mean game (b. won’t. Maybe MHXX doesn’t do very well in the west. That would have little to do with MH Worlds success. MH Worlds is a more western friendly game and would probably have better legs in he West than classic MH titles. Capcom has made so many mistakes you’d think they’d learn from some of them by now.

  13. Regarding most of the post… if you like to talk about businesses and profits go somewhere else.. I like to talk about how much fun games can be and the hype they generate… Profits?? Oh.. seriously… the only reason why nintendo fanboys have been so annoying lately is because they are afraid that nintendo will stop making consoles…

    But as for gaming reasons… profits don’t matter shit. If a game is fun then it’s fun independently of the profits it generates. And come on… are you seriously trying to compare Nintendo’s profits, a gaming oriented business with Microsoft and Sony, 2 companies who’s main profits don’t come from videogames? It’s just ridiculous. Big budgets don’t make good games or good consoles.

    Now regarding Capcom… You suck and because of this comment now I don’t trust you anymore. You said that your switch releases would depended on the sales of Street Fighter. I’m not a big fan of SF, but because since your future releases depended on it, I decided to buy it and try it out.. And as I expected.. it sucked… or better said… I suck at SF so I got tired very easily. And a few weeks ago Capcom said that they were surprised with SF sales on the switch. But now they want to evaluate again?? Sorry capcom… but I’m not buying anymore from you… we are Nintendo Fans, with have our own sense of worth as gamers… And you are making fun of it.. so go fuck yourself until you learn from your childish mistakes.
