Capcom almost certainly won’t attempt to bring Monster Hunter World to Switch, but it may be making entirely new Monster Hunter games for the console. A recent shareholder’s meeting Q&A transcript includes a Capcom executive saying that the company “plans to continue developing other titles for this platform in the future.” Per Twitter user Koudaiseidaos, that meeting also included a separate question that seems to indicate that Capcom would make Monster Hunter games for Switch specifically, rather than attempt to port home console games to a console with less power: Continue reading…Powered by WPeMatico
