Rumour Capcom Creating New Ace Attorney For Switch Alongside Collections Of Past Entries
No objections here!
A few days ago we reported on the news that Capcom had pledged further software support to the Nintendo Switch, with the beloved Ace Attorney series getting a mention as a future release.

News Capcom to Bring Increased Support and Ace Attorney to Switch in 2018
No objection here

News Monster Hunter XX On Switch Helps Capcom Post Impressive Growth
Title shows "stalwart performance"
Monster Hunter XX on Switch may be seen by some fans as something of a lazy port of an old title by Capcom - especially when you consider that the swanky new Monster Hunter: World is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in the near future - but it has helped the publisher to another bumper year. Net sales for the six...

News Ultra Street Fighter II Had A Better UK Debut Than Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite
New crossover could only make it to 12th in the UK chart

News Oh Yes, Resident Evil Revelations Will Have Joy-Con Pointing and Waggling on Switch
Optional though, so don't panic
Back when Capcom confirmed Resident Evil Revelations and its sequel for all current-gen systems (including the Switch), it referenced new control schemes. An updated fact sheet now sheds light on how this'll affect the Switch and it's good / bad / incomprehensible (delete as appropriate) news. Oh yes, we're going to...

Video See the Big Difference Between Monster Hunter XX on Switch and 3DS
Occasionally our memory plays tricks on us - we may think back to old games and picture lovely, crisp visuals, but then we play them for real and, well, the results don't match our memories. That could conceivably be the case with Monster Hunter XX. The Switch version demo is now out in Japan (instructions to access it here)...

It could certainly be something fun to do as the weekend...

Revamped edition also includes full Japanese version, too
In one form or another the 3DS eShop has played host to almost the entire 'main' series of Ace Attorney games, including in the West; that requires us to brush off the lack of localisation of The Great Ace Attorney and its sequel, of course. In any case, Capcom is rounding off the collection...

But it won't divulge actual sales figures
Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was Capcom's first major release for the Switch, but it came as something of a disappointment.

Random Capcom France Monster Hunter 'Costume' Tease Confuses Eager Fans
The perils of hype
E3 isn't far away, and it's worth remembering that companies often use the build-up to the LA extravaganza to make big announcements.
