Those who have followed the successful campaign of “Resident Evil 7” and are familiar with the close connections between Capcom and Nintendo may come up rather disappointed. What is the reason for concern within the console’s followers and the game’s fans read in the coming lines.

GameRant is bringing the sad news to Nintendo “Switch” fans. Capcom does not consider releasing a version for its long anticipated title on Nintendo’s newest console. This decision may come as surprise to those, who have followed the close relations between the two firms in the past few years. The reason for this withdrawal is probably the unsure success of Nintendo’s new platform. Specialists in the field may expect high sales coming to it, but before they are realized, Nintendo “Switch” is an unsure market and as such is not viable for heavy investments.

Attack of the fanboy adds more details to Nintendo’s unfavorable situation. Capcom and they anticipated hit “Resident Evil 7” are not the only ones to take a step back and distance themselves from the coming console. Even though Bethesda has imported their hit “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” to the Switch, many others have preferred to distance themselves and await initial results on sales and player base. Among them are Respawn Entertainment who have decided to keep their product “Titanfall 2” away from the new console before they can be sure of their decision. Gearbox Software have also taken a similar approach when it comes to their title “Boarderlands 3”. BioWare are also among the developers who have decided to weight their chances before coming in. Their new hit “Mass Effect: Andromeda” is for now not expected to appear on Nintendo’s new product.

Nintendo Everything shines some light on the big developers’ decision to distance themselves from the “Switch” for now. According to the magazine, Nintendo NY has announced limited pre-orders on the new Nintendo “Switch”. This announcement goes together with other major retailers who have claimed limited and exhausted numbers of pre-orders available for the new console. The Nintendo NES Special Edition is one that has not received re-supplements for a few months already and people still remember the rough start of the Nintendo Wii U. These are reasons enough to make everyone wary of their decision to invest trust or products n the company. The Nintendo “Switch” will be available for purchase from March 3rd 2017.
