Capcom looking into PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch multiplatform games

James Orry Updated on by

Capcom is currently investigating the possibility of bringing its multiplatform titles on PS4 and Xbox One to Nintendo Switch.

“We are currently carrying out research with regards to multiplatform implementation of software for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on to the Nintendo Switch,” commented Capcom as part of its FY2016 Q2 Question and Answer Summary. 

Capcom added: “However, we do feel that there are differences in the desired direction and the play-style of the Nintendo Switch and those of the PlayStation 4 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.”

Speaking more about its plans for Nintendo Switch, Capcom said: “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.”

We don’t really know very much about the graphical capabilities of the Nintendo Switch, beyond it being powered by an Nvidia Tegra part.

Nintendo Switch will launch in March 2017, with further details to be revealed in January.
