Ono says Capcom needs Nintendo’s go-ahead for Street Fighter games on Nintendo Switch


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.”

  1. Before anyone asks for it; No they will not be bring Street Fighter V to Nintendo Switch because Sony funded that game and 1 of the conditions for the funding was for the console version to be a Playstation 4 Exclusive.

    1. Circumventing that is as easy as it was 25 years ago. Change one asset then release it as “Street Fighter Champion Edition 2” on Switch. Something akin to the Dragon Quest game just out

  2. 𝑵𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒏𝒅𝒐 𝑭𝒊𝒓𝒔𝒕 𝑶𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒓 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓

    How about asking to port Capcom vs Snk games?

  3. It’s true that exclusively for ps4 was part of the agreement, then you must remember that the deal was sonic lost world to be wii u exclusive, oh wait Ubisoft did the same with rayman legends. Let’s not act like companies don’t circumvent it all the time.

    The comparison to Rayman Legends isn’t accurate. Rayman Legends, unlike Street Fighter V, wasn’t funded by Nintendo.
    Also, I could be wrong on this, but wasn’t Bayonetta 2 funded by Nintendo and 1 of the conditions for the game was it was to be exclusive to Nintendo Wii U? Sure it was later on ported to the Nintendo Switch but it still remained a Nintendo exclusive game.
    The Comparison to Sonic Lost World is also flawed as to this day, that game has remained a Nintendo Wii U exclusive. It may get a port to the Nintendo Switch down the road but the agreement was still that it remained a Nintendo exclusive along with Sonic Boom.

    To be honest, this aspect still puzzles me. Ultra Street Fighter IV would actually benefit a lot from being ported to the Nintendo Switch so I honestly don’t understand why they never did it especially with Ryu being in Smash Bros.

    It’s not quite that simple when the game was funded by the company in question. Street Fighter V has since been updated to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition but it’s still a Playstation 4 Exclusive.
