As expected. The day Crapcom put out a Switch game that's not regurgitated old rope or low budget guff is the day Satan drives to work in a snow plough.

Well crapcom as been one of the best publishers for this generation of consoles.

The slightest chance of certain Japanese games appearing on Switch will light the internet on fire but company reps keep responding like "Haha, this will never be on Switch, haha. Joke??? Haha." Nagoshi and Harada do this too. And we're supposed to believe hardware power alone is keeping all these games from being on the Switch?

yes they all hate nintendo

He's poking fun at EB Games for announcing a product he's in charge of that he's never heard of.
Imagine being in charge of a game and waking up to your twitter being bombarded with questions about a version of a game that doesn't exist, because EB games Canada decided to make the announcement out of nowhere? It's a bit amusing at least.

As for why these Japanese companies often don't bring their 'biggest' titles to Switch, I don't imagine any of their board meetings involve turning down the opportunity to earn millions for some trivial reason.
They have a large portfolio of games, so they're probably looking at what can bring them more profit.
If they think the cost of porting Street Fighter 2 HD will amount to more profit than doing the same for Street Fighter V, then it can make sense for them to go that route.

Although SFV is probably a console exclusive to PS4 for the duration of the generation, but you can take Devil May Cry, Resident Evil or Monster Hunter as an example instead.

Though that approach can backfire if fans get sick of it.

Sure has been. I still thank them for the privilege of having the 3 DMC games separately at a higher price. Or buying a collection of ROMs and emulators, that are not even complete on the cart. Or having to import almost every physical game here in Europe, EVEN MEGA MAN.

Right, Crapcom has had a renaissance this gen.

It seems like people who want 8th gen core games really ought to rethink only owning a Switch. But I guess bitching for years about the lack of support is more fun.

Shows how little I've been paying attention, I thought this was already out over a year ago.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

OR, you just cannot comprehend that we actually own other systems, we just want some respect. But talking out of your a** is more fun, I guess.

What a strange response.

Its not about respect genius, porting games to Switch is a fairly big endeavor and that's why 3rd parties often handle it. If the specs were more equal then ports would likely be easy.

Its certainly not just a Crapcom thing.



I had a feeling it was bogus. Way to waste an opportunity for new sales, Capcom. -_-
