Capcom is making efforts to bring more games to Nintendo Switch through the Cloud

Japanese video game publisher Capcom Co. enjoyed a successful run of bringing a cloud version of its “Resident Evil 7” for the Switch game last month. They charged about $18 for 180 days of access. In comparison, fans could download the game for $50 on their devices.

The whole process revolves delivering programs over an internet connection. In return, the remote server responds immediately to unpredictable gameplay. Now Capcom is looking forward to bringing more high-end games to Nintendo Co.’s Switch in a cloud-based streaming service.

The path has already been set for movies, TV series, and songs. Some of the best examples of such networks are Netflix Inc.’s video service and Spotify Technology SA’s music app.

Capcom who has promoted hit franchises including, Mega Man, Street Fighter, and Monster Hunter are working to include more titles to its cloud service as confirmed by insiders at Capcom said.

A Capcom spokeswoman said,“The company would decide whether to expand its cloud offerings after assessing the performance of the “Resident Evil 7” Switch version.”

Game makers are presently interested in the idea of cloud games because it will allow them to extend the life of a previously released title or, in the case of services such as PlayStation Now, provide regular revenue through monthly fees.

One of the challenges will be to get the technology right. Some players of the cloud version of Capcom’s “Resident Evil 7” have said the gameplay quality is faulty.
