After The Success Of Ultra Street Fighter II, Capcom ‘Starting To Prepare’ More Games For Nintendo Switch

More Capcom games might be heading to Nintendo Switch. During the company’s earnings report last week, it was announced that the success of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers could lead to more of its iconic video games getting a Switch treatment.

Ultra Street Fighter II Sales Report

The report comes from Takashi Mochizuki of The Wall Street Journal. On Twitter, he revealed that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, published for Nintendo Switch last May, exceeded expectations. In fact, Capcom revealed that the fighting game sold over 450,000 copies in just a few months.

In their financial report, Capcom noted that the fighting game for Nintendo Switch “made an excellent start and proved to be a smash hit.” The Japanese company did not divulge their own sales projection, but the game contributed to the uptick in their financial performance. The video game publisher reported $105 million increase in net sales, a 7 percent increase from the same period last year.

Meanwhile, the company’s operating profit rose from $6.5 million last year or $7.4 million this year, attributing to a 13 percent increase. The report is based on the company’s performance in the past three months (from April 1 to June 30). Read their full financial report here.

Capcom also cited that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (PS4, Xbox One, PC) and Monster Hunter XX Double Cross (Nintendo 3DS) contributed to the company’s revenue. Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is an update to Super Street Fighter II Turbo published in 1994.

The new Nintendo Switch game added a slew of new modes to play and added two new fighters: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. The game also allowed players to ship from the original graphics or use the revamped look with a press of a button.

Capcom Games For Switch

Polygon reported that at least two more video games from Capcom are heading to Nintendo Switch. The Japanese company announced that Resident Evil: Revelations and its 2015 sequel would both be released on the new console by “late 2017.”

Platform-specific features and price for the Switch version are yet to be divulged, but the company will also re-release the 2012 horror-survival game to PS4 and Xbox One this month. The game will retail for $19.99 and will include a 1920 x 1080p resolution, improved framerate and refined movement.
