I'm not seeing any negative here. Capcom has done basically nothing with PS4/XBOX except for Street Fighter 5 and a bunch of Resident Evil Remasters. If they're seeing something desirable about Switch development, that seems to be only a good sign.

Yup they are covering their but from MH fans that are on Nintendo side. Some like me are already hooked & want the exclusive to keep going. This lines up to the rumor that someone found on a website I think Capcom or Sony that Sony made a deal with Capcom to get MH5 on their system so this is going to suck if true.

Monster Hunter PLEASE!

If you visit MHXX japan website you will see its stated for 3ds but once you scroll down you see whats shadow out "System coming soon"? So either Switch or another system is getting MHXX?

tldr;

Capcom is being Capcom and refusing to have the balls to do what needs to be done to make a system successful: support it. So they're going to sit back and wait, maybe put out a couple ports and when they fail to sell a million or so copies they'll refuse to support the Switch any longer because their games don't sell on it, ignoring the fact that no one gives a damn about the sixteenth port of the same game.

Ya 3rd parties know already what Nin fans want. They have been reading & seeing the sales of 3rd parties games for years on how they don't do well unless its exclusive & takes use of the ideas of what Nin system brings. So they will only release games like RE & MH to see if the system sells a lot & if it does then carry over the other big games to Switch.

Pretty much this. Crapcom gonna crap.

NO Capcom, it's not a different experience. It's just the same experience that we can take on the go.

Just release freaking SFV for the Switch that's all we want.

And if you don't think SFV is tailor made for the Switch, a console that can be taken anywhere for short training sessions and local multiplayer, then what is wrong with you ?

Yoi nailed it. SFV would be PERFECT for the NS. But, you know, Monster Hunter would be even better. MHS must happen.

Ikr, that game would be perfect for fighting on the go ect.

Doesn't the Switch give u the option to do a pretty basic port and be done with it? Other than that, what can be console-specific?

- Streetpass functionality on the go
- Multiplayer experiences on the go (even with multiple screens)
- Miiverse functions? If they keep it that way
- Maybe distance and location based stuff similar to Pokemon Go, if Switch has a GPS unit or can use the GPS of your phone for that.

I can see how the last point could bring interesting ideas to Monster Hunter (find a monster at a certain location?), but otherwise I don't see Capcom using a lot of those functions in their games.

Nintendo loves proprietary hardware so that could be making it difficult to port games to it, I mean powerpc was known as a nightmare to develop for and port games too and we have no idea how powerful this thing is.

Just make Monster Hunter for it and you'll be gold.

It would be nice if Capcom made use of the extra console capabilities this time around to either update Monster Hunters graphics or at the very least, drop the arenas for an open world to chase monsters in. I'm all for gameplay over graphics, but it feels like Capcom gravitates to the console that is selling the best with PS2 level graphics.

Oh god no, the way how he is talking looks like the rumor about Monster Hunter landing back on Sony system might be true. Also as we know it that 3rd parties & Nin don't see eye to eye that good so this statement about hardware games made for each one in a different way just screams that we won't be seeing the same game that lands on one system come to the other. I think Capcom might do away with exclusives is what I'm thinking is happening. Time to say goodbye to MH damn!

How does this say MH is going (back to) Sony?

Well, I'd be willing to bet that there is no Resident Evil 7 for Switch. Why does Nintendo always miss the AAA games? Why??? WHHYYYYYYY???? Ugh.

"OH LOOK, A THIRD PARTY TRYING TO SUPPORT NINTENDO. LET'S HATE IT BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T SUPPORTED NINTENDO BEFORE"

Aaaaand... the cycle never ends.

I understand how you feel about the rant that people claim Nintendo doesn't get any third party support and in fact, I myself hate that statement.....but Capcom has always been a loyal partner to Nintendo and has always supported Nintendo regardless of whether the console has failed or not.

I completely agree with you, but these guys just don't give Capcom a rest. Seriously, Capcom has been so supportive towards Nintendo.... it's not their fault that the Wii U was undersold :/ they still tried to help the console while they could.

Well part of the reason why they rant towards Capcom is....well Capcom is a weird company. They made Street Fighter V look bad, they are constantly developing only Monster Hunter games leaving Mega Man for a long time and they haven't pleased their fans enough.

The only complains that you get from Nintendo is them not bringing back some of the IPs and the lack of graphical power(which makes them argue for lack of support) and that's about it.
