Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Capcom: Monster Hunter XX Switch version is another test to evaluate our support for Switch

Next evaluation test will be Resident Evil Revelations collection? Capcom, come on!!!



Around the Network

In case anyone doesn't know all products are released "as test", they will all be evaluated on how they fared and impact future releases...

On the specific case, people were thinking Capcom would put ridiculous expectations on SF2 call it a failure and say they won't release more things on Switch.

I would bet even Capcom executives know a little more than you guys on how to make money and run a company. So if they are using this game as another test (probably because it's another genre where they want to look at the market), putting little money in ports and gauge how much they shall invest in bigger projects in the future.

SO shill out and wait for the good sales of this port and another claim that Capcom is increasing support for Switch, just as they done after the success of SFII.

For anyone questioning why X1 and PS4 doesn't get reports of any company testing the userbase the sales of most MP there against the normal on Nintendo platforms is self evident, so stop playing the victim.

I think they're lying to get fans to buy the game in hopes of greater support in the future.

How? Monster Hunter XX Switch is a Japan only game, a remaster of a game that has sold almost two million units already over there, and that one is also a revision of a game that has sold almost 3m units already. How many times do you think the japanese are going to buy the same game in such a short amount of time, specially considering the hardware bottleneck is worse in Japan than anywhere else?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

feels like trolling from Capcom, Monster Hunter XX is a 3DS title, the Switch version looks very dated and there's no 3D to compromise



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

This needs to stop, they are practically blackmailing Switch owners with this "If X title doesn't sell we won't bring the good games" aproach. MHXX will easily sell half a milion copies in Japan but they must stop this attitute towards the Switch and its owners



I like how the publisher that makes constant deals both bad and good with other companies like they are on crack, yet with Nintendo it's to "evaluate".



               

They will support the Switch they like it or not.

These kinds of statements are needless and I am not sure who they serve? Besides Capcom of course, you can fuck right off!



It's not like every Capcom game on the X1 or PS4 does exceptionally well, yet they make all their AAA games for at least one of these consoles. How can you predict sales of your future games on Switch based on two crappy overpriced ports? It stuns me how people working in the marketing/gaming business for years still have no idea what they're talking about.

Good thing I ignored the Switch hype. Maybe in 3 years it will have a reasonable line-up that makes it worth buying.



I called it like weeks ago. I knew Capcom were tiptoeing in Switch's market will all these ports.
