Switch may be Getting an Exclusive Monster Hunter Game as well as Generations Ultimate
It seem that Capcom may have plans to release another exclusive Monster Hunter game on the Nintendo Switch alongside Generations Ultimate. The company has just shared part of the Q&A session which took place during the 39th shareholders meeting earlier this month, and in it, Capcom was quizzed about the chances of Monster Hunter World getting a Nintendo Switch version.
While the answer to Monster Hunter World on the Switch was no – since Capcom feels World simply won’t run on the Nintendo Switch – the company did say that Switch might see another Monster Hunter game post-Generations Ultimate.
Here’s the fragment of the key question made on the 39th shareholders meeting that Capcom shared:
“Q．I believe that if the number of Nintendo Switch units sold increases, it should positively impact Capcom’s performance. What are your impressions of the Switch?
A. 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.”
