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].''

RUMOR - a first look at a new Sonic Mania zone?
