Capcom “Starting To Prepare” More Nintendo Switch Games

Capcom might make more Nintendo Switch games. After the success of Ultra Street Fighter II, which performed ahead of expectations, the Japanese publisher says it’s now “starting to prepare” more Switch versions of its games.

According Wall Street Journal writer Takashi Mochizuki (via Game Informer), Ultra Street Fighter II sold 450,000 copies, which, as noted, exceeded Capcom’s own estimates for the title.

As part of Capcom’s earnings report last week, the publisher said Ultra Street Fighter II for Switch was a “smash hit.” The company didn’t say what its sales projections for the game were, but whatever the case, it looks like you can expect more Switch titles from Capcom in the future.

Ultra Street Fighter II launched in May for Switch. An updated version of the original Street Fighter II, it adds several new modes, updated graphics, and two new characters, Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. A new cooperative mode lets two players fight together against AI enemies, and players can also flip between original and updated visuals by pressing a button. Players will now also be able to change characters’ costume colors.

The game also introduces Way of the Hado, a first-person fighting mode that uses motion controls. Although Ultra Street Fighter II is a 2D sprite-based game, Way of the Hado is 3D and uses assets from Street Fighter IV. You can see gameplay of Way of the Hado here.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
