According to Forbes – Games (This article and its images were originally posted on Forbes – Games June 26, 2018 at 07:40AM.)
With Capcom holding its shareholders meeting earlier this month, we now know that the Japanese publisher may have further plans for the Monster Hunter series on the Switch.
When asked on what Capcom thought of the Switch, one of the official responses was as follows.
We currently have Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. available for the Nintendo Switch, and plan to continue developing other titles for this platform in the future. Additionally, going forward we would like to focus on esports, as well as developing video games that take advantage of connection speed improvements on smart phones and those that support ongoing visual improvements in televisions.
With the answer to that being a predictable no, due to obvious technical reasons, they did go on to say that plans for further Monster Hunter games on the Switch were being considered.
I am sure the sales of the upcoming Western release of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate on the Switch will be a key factor in Capcom’s decision to bring more Monster Hunter games to the platform.
However, considering how well Monster Hunter Generations and Monster Hunter World have sold outside of Japan, I am fairly confident we will be seeing some all-new Monster Hunter games on the Switch sometime soon.
