Nintendo Switch Will Not Get Monster Hunter World
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is hitting the Nintendo Switch later this summer on August 28th, but fans around the world want to know if the recently released Monster Hunter World will ever see life on the console. According to a recent Q&A posted on the website Siliconera, Capcom answered the question after their most recent shareholders’ meeting.
Unfortunately, they have responded with a hard no on the subject. Although many were disappointed by the news, Capcom stated their reasons for not taking on the project. Apparently Monster Hunter World is literally too large for the the console. The company quickly reassured fans by saying that other Monster Hunter games might be in the works for the portable library.
Not All Doom and Gloom for Monster Hunter Fans
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate was the complete edition of the 3DS title Monster Hunter Generations. The title was mostly received well by critics and fans alike with many saying how pleased they were with the sheer amount of content that is in the game. Monster Hunter Generations added the Arts System, which was a new take on how hunters handled weaponry by adding special abilities to each tool.
Even though Monster Hunter World may not see a release on the Nintendo Switch, Capcom will continue their excellent support with additional in-game events, gear, quests, and monsters. The next event to hit the game, Summer Twilight Festival, will launch on July 13th for both PS4 and Xbox One and bring all new content for players to enjoy. PC owners can expect to see the game on their platform of choice this fall.
