Monster Hunter: World is skipping Switch but it sounds like Capcom has plans to make up for it


How does a Monster Hunter designed for Switch sound?

The Nintendo Switch is getting some Monster Hunter love in the form of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. That’s all well and good. But what about Monster Hunter: World? Is there any chance of a port?

During a recent shareholder meeting, Capcom told investors that bringing World to Nintendo Switch isn’t feasible. With the way things have shaken out, that response is entirely to be expected.

During a shareholders meeting, Capcom said Monster Hunter: World “can’t be done on [Nintendo] Switch.” Implying the game won’t be ported to the system.

However, executives did state that the company will proceed with developing MH games specifically designed for the platform.

Still, Switch owners have more to look forward to than just Generations Ultimate. Capcom has said that it expects to make a Monster Hunter game specifically with the Switch in mind. Take that as you will.

Personally, I don’t know that I can get into Generations Ultimate, but I would love a middle ground between that style of game and the advancements made in World. Put it on the Switch and I’m there.
