NIntendo Switch Update: Release Date & New Games Revealed, Capcom And Tantalus Media Also Joining Nintendo Switch?By Erwin Castro, UniversityHerald Reporter
With the impending release of the Nintendo Switch, more tech companies have already expressed interest to support the Nintendo's upcoming gaming console. Capcom and Tantalus Media are the latest tech companies to partner with the Japanese gaming giant.
Australian-based video game developer Tantalus Media recently made headlines when it announced its partnership with Nintendo and its support for the upcoming game console. This is not the first time these two companies will work together. The two companies have already collaborated in the past and workecd together on the HD remaster of "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess ."
In a recent interview with media, Tom Crago, CEO of Tantalus Media, has confirmed that his company has been working on Nintendo Switch games for "some time," though he remained secretive as to what type of projects the team has been focusing and working on.
Japanese-based Capcom is another game developer and publisher that announced its support for the upcoming Nintendo game console. Reports said that Capcom has already started its internal research to identify the feasibility of developing games for Nintendo's upcoming game console.
The company has plans to release games for the Microsoft Xbox One console, Sony's PS4, and Nintendo, as a part of their multi-platform implementation strategy. However, Capcom did not make any comment as to what gaming titles it plans to port to the upcoming Nintendo Switch. The company has remained tight-lipped about this matter. But rumors are rife on the web and already spreading, suggesting that Capcom might be working on Nintendo Switch version of "Monster Hunter" and other hit games.
At this time, it still unclear if the two companies will proceed with their plans to develop games for the upcoming Nintendo game console. As Digital Trends reported, Capcom has already mentioned in its latest financial statement that it typically releases gaming titles after a careful review process.
The Nintendo Switch, which also known as NX, is an upcoming hybrid video game console, and it's the company's seventh major home console. Unveiled in October 2016, the Switch is expected to hit the global market in March 2017.
