Nintendo Switch news: Capcom sees the hybrid release positively, may look into migrating PS4 and Xbox One games


Nintendo Switch has whipped up a storm in the gaming scene, and all the more for the game developers as they see more possibilities in how they create entertainment for players.

Capcom, one of the confirmed third-party partner for the Nintendo Switch, has expressed glee in the upcoming release of the said hybrid. In a report from Nintendo Insider, Capcom mentioned, “As a software publisher, we endeavor 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.”

One of the biggest questions after the trailer was released is if there will be PlayStation 4 (PS4) and Xbox One games that will be introduced on the Nintendo Switch. This, too, was discussed during the financial results briefing for the first half of the fiscal year Q&A last Oct. 28 with Capcom.

As reported by Video Gamer, it appears that nothing is set in stone yet, considering the fact that they are still investigating the possibilities of doing so. The thought of doing such multi-platform migration is very enticing, although third-party partners would first need to see if the new hybrid can support the existing games.

What the public knows as of the moment is that Nintendo Switch uses the same touchscreen mechanism as smartphones, but the graphical capabilities are still up in the air, Video Gamer adds.

Aside from Capcom, the confirmed third-party partners consist of big names, such as ATLUS, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bethesda Softworks, Electronic Arts, Konami Digital Entertainment, Sega Games, Square Enix and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment, just to name a few.

Nintendo Switch is expected to launch by March 2017, although fans will need to wait until January 2017 to hear the most updated information on the development of the hybrid. There have been no statements yet regarding the price, although if the Wii U initially came out as $300, the Nintendo Switch may be around $300 to $400, as pointed out by Techno Aisle.
