Capcom has revealed that it plans on releasing ten games on the iPhone/iPod Touch platform this year, including the successful survival-horror shooter, Resident Evil: Degeneration.
Capcom got off to a running start with Resident Evil: Degeneration for the iPhone, and is to build on this with nine more titles for the platform to be released during this business year.
Capcom reckons that sales of Resident Evil: Degeneration will hit one million copies by the end of teh year, making it a hit by anyone’s reckoning. Knowing a good thing when it sees one, the company is trawling through its back catalogue for other titles and franchises to port to Apple’s handheld. Although an iPhone port of Mega Man 2 appeared back in March it is not thought to be part of the ten games referred to – a good thing too, as it was an utterly shonky conversion.
There is no word on which Capcom titles will make the cut, but mythological draw-em-up Okami seems like an obvious choice, as does the simple yet stylishly presented platformer Viewtiful Joe. We wouldn’t be too surprised if Dead Rising 2 on the Xbox/PS3 (due later this year) was accompanied by an iPhone tie-in too, although we have our fingers crossed for an iPhone port of classic SNES RPG Breath of Fire.
