Capcom’s support has been mixed on the Nintendo Switch with many wanting some of their higher profile games to arrive on Nintendo’s latest platform. Speaking at this month’s EGX event, Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono says that it’s Nintendo who needs to approach them to bring more Street Fighter games to the system. He said that was the case for bringing the Anniversary Collection over.
“Can you go over to the Nintendo booth and maybe just like shout that at the VIPs in the back stage? Because they’re the ones you really need to talk to – not me. Even with our previous Nintendo title Ultra Street Fighter II, Nintendo came to us and said, ‘We want to do something with Street Fighter II because it’s been 25 years since it came out on previous Nintendo consoles,’ so I think they’re the ones you need to convince, so go and mob that booth.”
