In a recent interview with Japanese publication Jiji, Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto confirmed the company’s plans to support the Nintendo Switch during the next fiscal year.

Detailing the studio’s plans for Nintendo’s console/handheld hybrid, Tsujimoto-san stated the following (translated via Google): “We are already undertaking development, and we will sell software that are popular domestically and internationally, such as game software “Inversion Trial” for switches,” referring to the Japanese name for the hugely popular Ace Attorney series.

Hopefully this news proves to be the start of a change of course for Capcom, who has shown tepid support for the Switch since it released in March of this year. In any case, we’re just happy that the new Ace Attorney game is getting its home on a proper console and not relegated to the mobile market.

So, what would you like to see Capcom bring to the Switch in 2018? As always, we love to hear what you think. Be sure to let us know in the comments.
