In a recent interview with MCV, Capcom Interactive’s president and COO Midori Yuasa spoke out on the shift of mobile gaming from dedicated consoles and computers to smartphones.
“The casual gamer that used to play on the PC and the hardcore gamer that used to play on a dedicated gaming portable now plays on their smartphone.
‘The iPhone and larger smartphone markets are extremely important to Capcom as, like no device before, smartphones have the potential to become a universal game platform.”
Announcements like these are always big news for the mobile gaming community. As companies like Capcom begin to acknowledge the importance of smartphones such as the iPhone in the mobile gaming world, it should mean bigger and better games, like Capcom’s 2010 release of Street Fighter IV for iOS.
Yuasa goes on to say that Capcom has invested in several upcoming titles slated for release in 2011.
“We have a lot of stuff on the horizon for both hardcore and casual gamers, so 2011 is shaping up to be huge on Capcom’s mobile front.”
