Phoenix Is Set To Switch Things Up!
He’s one of gaming’s national treasures, has one of the most iconic catchphrases of all time, and has put the verbal smackdown on more criminals than you can count. Sure, he’s had a few hits and misses along the way, but players will always have a place in their hearts for the eagle eyed attorney.
While other Capcom characters managed to steal the spotlight up until this point, it seems that Phoenix and company are due to get their turn at the Nintendo Switch sooner rather than later!
According to an article on Eurogamer –
Capcom is already developing new games to release on Nintendo Switch in fiscal year 2018, Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujiro has confirmed – and one of those is an Ace Attorney game.
The news comes via an interview by Japanese news website Jiji, as translated by Wall Street Journal tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki.
It’s not exactly surprising to hear that Capcom has new games in the works for Switch, of course – particularly given the console’s greater-than-anticipated sales success – but the news is likely to be of comfort to fans dismayed by the company’s seemingly cautious approach to Switch during its launch year.
So far, Capcom has released one game on Switch in the west – the disappointing, questionably priced Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The company’s HD 3DS port Monster Hunter XX, meanwhile, has remained Japan-only, much to the chagrin of on-the-go Monster Hunter fans over here.
The only other Capcom game confirmed to release on Switch up until today’s news has been its port of Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2, due later this month.
Its other 2017 releases, such as Resident Evil 7, Okami HD, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, and The Disney Afternoon Collection, have remained a no-show on Nintendo’s console, leaving many Switch owners to wonder when, and indeed if, Capcom would move to offer more support.
