"When asked why Devil May Cry 5 isn’t on Switch, Itsuno explained that development started before the team had dev kits. Capcom therefore concentrated on releasing the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, Itsuno added that if Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen sells well, they might consider porting Devil May Cry 5 to Nintendo’s console."

Not this shit again. I thought we were past the whole 'test' period with Capcom. But apparently every game is another test.

It's the Capcom Modus Operandi. Not since the GC have they given Nintendo anywhere close to an honest level of support. It's all tests ever since....despite the fact the Wii and Switch have both outsold the GC.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Yeah, they can fuck off.



FFS, Capcom. Enough of this crap! If you can bring your new game onto the Switch from the start, you're brain-dead stupid to not do so! You should have realized this LAST year!

Wait, so a business cannot wait to see if another game sells first? Seems logical to me, if people were not interested in a prior product of mine, why would I sell them another?



Wow ... at least they're being honest with their strategy but that ain't gonna sit well with much people that's for sure :P

Because there is a huge difference between a person with a Switch not buying a port of Dragons Dogma for 50e or whatever they ask for it when you could literally buy an Xbox360 and the game for less and play it that way....

€32 and you would have the console and the game.

To claim that poor sales of that would suggest that people on the Switch wouldn't be willing to shell out for a brand new game would be like Ford saying they're not releasing a new version of the Focus this cycle because customers of theirs aren't willing to buy a 1998 Gen 1 Ford Focus for €13k



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Oh, fuck you Capcom.



This is just unfortunate...
Launch year, I was somewhat understanding.
2018, maybe a little less understanding.
Now, I have no idea why they are still in this particular mindset.

They should either build a team dedicated to Switch titles like Square or take Switch into consideration in multiplat titles.
It's tiring to hear these kinds of news that "if this sells well on Switch...maybe."
