“…bringing Monster Hunter: World now for release is difficult.”
Capcom’s President has said bringing Monster Hunter World to Nintendo Switch would be Difficult.
Tsujimoto confirmed Capcom is aware of the request but added “However, taking into account various conditions, bringing Monster Hunter: World now for release is difficult. The reason is that the Switch has different functions from other stationary consoles as well as different players.”
“Each game console as its own characteristic, and it’s necessary that we, as game makers, adapt to that when making [a game],” he explained.
Tsujimoto did give fans hope for a future title in the franchise on the Nintendo hybrid console.
“From now on,” he added, “we’re looking at how we can support the Switch with our games, and that also includes Monster Hunter.”
