Capcom Promises More Nintendo Switch Support, Including Ace Attorney Games

No objection here.

News by Nadia Oxford, .

It looks like Capcom is slowly but surely climbing aboard the Nintendo Switch hype train. In an interview published earlier today, Capcom Haruhiro Tsujimoto confirmed it has more Switch games on the way-including Ace Attorney games.

The brief interview with Tsujimoto was conducted by Jiji, a Japanese news site. Wall Street Journal tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki summarized the interview on his Twitter account.

Capcom hasn't revealed its specific strategy for the Nintendo Switch beyond "Ace Attorney games are involved." The titles are slated to release after April of next year.

There are simple, low-cost ways Capcom could start supporting the Switch in earnest, e.g. ports of the Mega Man Legacy Collection games, a port of the Disney Afternoon collection, and a new HD collection of all the Ace Attorney games released to date. The company is pretty desperate for an affordable pick-me-up; hopefully its Switch plans will help pull it out of the red.

    Hey Capcom, just start publishing all your classics besides SFII, Resident Evil, and Mega Man.

    Just please don't mess it up. Ace Attorney has been one of the few quality IPs besides not releasing some of the spin offs outside of Japan.

    My dream scenario is that we'll finally end up getting official English releases for Gyakuten Kenji 2 (which is fantastic) and the Dai Gyakuten Saiban games out of this, but the pessimist in me knows that probably ain't ever happening.

    Still, it's obviously good news overall - the inevitable Switch ports of the first six mainline AA games might expose more people to these wonderful games. Plus, the console looks like the most likely landing spot for the series' future entries now that the 3DS is in its twilight with no heir apparent.

    Resident Evil 4. Devil may Cry. Capcom Classics collection. A Demon’s Crest reboot.

    If SEGA can publish and sell yakuza with success then it shouldn't be a problem marketing Phoenix Wright the right way (the pun is intended). At least that's what I hope. Yakuza gives a good example because by releasing yakuza 0 the series got a really nice push. So basically Capcom should make a prequel and then remake /release the older titles for switch.

    We know we're not getting their AAA stuff, but I would gladly buy all their arcade games.

    Obviously I'd want to play the Ace Attorney games that haven't been released in English, but I'm *really* hoping for new titles, and especially new spin-offs.

    Ace Attorney Investigations: Dick Gumshoe, please?
