Monster Hunter: World Not Coming to Switch
Capcom reiterated earlier today that there are currently no plans for a Nintendo Switch version of its Monster Hunter: World game.
The above answer came at Capcom Co., Ltd.’s The 41st Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders earlier today [source], with the same investor also asking whether there would be another Monster Hunter aimed at high-school students. Capcom replied that they are planning to develop such a game and to stay tuned for more information. No series title nor platform were revealed.
Monster Hunter: World originally released back in January 2018, and has since sold more than 15.7 million units across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. The game also marked the first mainline series entry not available on a Nintendo platform for several years. Last year’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Expansion Pack has also amassed more than 5.2 million units in sales to date.
The last Nintendo title Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate (known as Monster Hunter XX in Japan) originally released for Nintendo 3DS in Japan and later became available for Nintendo Switch worldwide, selling collectively more than 3.6 million units to date on both platforms. We reviewed the Nintendo Switch version [here] back in 2017. We’ll keep you posted on any future developments.
