Monster Hunter XX sales will dictate Capcom's Switch support going forward

Capcom to 'evaluate' the system

By way of a Capcom investor report, we have a little more clarity on their stance on the Switch.

Earlier this year they stated that sales from Ultra Street Fighter II would influence whether or not the game would come to other systems (that sold 350 thousand units worldwide, by the way), but that was more about Street Fighter and less about the Switch. But as of this week, Capcom is apparently basing their future efforts on the reception for Monster Hunter XX.

By way of the report, a Capcom official stated: "The Nintendo Switch seems to be doing very well, and we look forward to further growth in its install base. Beginning with Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. for Japan, we are evaluating how we will support this platform in the future." It's light, but it seems pretty open and shut.

If you want more Switch games or Capcom support, consider downloading the XX demo next week on August 10. It's free, and will probably be counted as a vote of sorts for the platform, or at the very least, a localization request.
