Capcom has already stated that it is pleased with the way Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers has performed on Switch, but in the company's officially-translated first-quarter financial results conference call Q&A summary, it has given exact sales figures for the game.
Capcom states that 100,000 copies have been sold in Japan to date, with 350,000 copies sold in Europe and North America. Almost half a million sales isn't to be sniffed at, quite clearly, and one would assume this means the Switch has passed the evaluation phase and the flood gates will now open, right?
Not so fast.
Q. Following the sales results of Ultra Street Fighter II, what will Capcom’s approach to the Nintendo Switch be going forward?
A. 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.
Yep, it's a very statement to last time; the company is waiting to see how Monster Hunter XX performs before deciding what content to bring to Switch.
Let's hope that reports suggesting the company has "multiple" games in development proves to be true, and this statement is simply the sign of a company that is being overly cautious in what it tells its shareholders. We already know that Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 are coming to the console, after all.
