Capcom COO offers praise for Switch, deciding on how to support the system

The following info comes from NeoGAF user zeromcd73 and Garou, who translated a recent interview with Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto...

- Uses his own primary school daughter as an example of a child who never wanted a home console before but wants a Switch
- The important thing regarding Switch for software makers is what they users want
- Cites the DS/Wii as examples of hardware with explosive hardware sales that at the start of their cycles did well thanks to Nintendo showing others how to make games fitting of the hardware, while third parties originally struggled on these platforms and didn't sell very well
- Capcom aims to develop many different things for different hardware and is currently researching
- ''As for the Switch, in May we will release USF2 and we will plan our support while looking at the situation [of the platform].''

Pokemon Co. International - Jump into Action with Magikarp Jump!

London, United Kingdom - May 25, 2017: The Pokémon Company International announced today that Magikarp Jump is now available for download at no charge on the App Store and on Google Play.

Train your Magikarp to soar as high as possible in Magikarp Jump! The lowly Magikarp now gets its time in the spotlight with this fun app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Feed and develop your Magikarp to maximize the Pokémon’s jump power to reach new heights. Then compete to see if your Magikarp is the best. Can your Magikarp rise to the level of League Champion?

During your training, if Magikarp gets knocked out, or retires upon reaching Lv. 20, you’ll start over with a new generation of Magikarp. But not all progress is lost—your new Pokémon will start off a little bit stronger than your last. Keep training every Magikarp until you can make it to the top of the in-game tournament ladder!

While you’re raising your Magikarp, keep an eye out for Pokémon that want to help you. For example, some Pokémon you encounter will give you food to keep your Magikarp nourished.

When you do well in jumping tournaments, you can get commemorative photos of your achievement. You can share these photos online and with friends to show the world how well you’ve trained your Magikarp.

Magikarp Jump also features in-app purchases, where you can spend real money on a variety of things to speed up your training, replenish your food stock, and catch more Magikarp. You can also purchase decor to customize your Magikarp’s habitat.

The Alm/Celica amiibo are some of the nicest Nintendo has put out. I'm sure we'll see at least one more revealed during this year's E3, and I hope the quality only continues to grow!
