Capcom has announced a new Street Fighter game for Nintendo Switch.
Don't expect more updated versions of classic Capcom fighting games, the publisher has said.
Following high definition reworks of the likes of Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 3, Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Marvel Super Heroes, Darkstalkers and Puzzle Fighter, Capcom will "slow down" on development of similar projects.
Why? Because of a drop-off in sales.

North-Hearn declined to specify the number of layoffs, but insisted the developer will continue to operate at a reduced size and will honour its commitments to existing partners. It had been rumoured that Backbone may be forced to close.
