Monster Hunter World on Switch too "difficult", says Capcom

Monster Hunter World on Switch too

Haruhiro Tsujimoto, the president and chief operating officer of Capcom, spoke with Toyo Keizai about the specific development conditions of Monster Hunter World and discussed the issue of a probable port for Switch. However, Capcom spoke again about the issue and there is no good news for the Nintendo console users because bringing the title to it would be hard.

He explained that Nintendo Switch is very different from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in terms of features, which is a nice way of saying that the hardware isn't capable enough. "However, considering various conditions, now it is hard to put out Monster Hunter World for the Switch".

At the same time, the manager said that taking into account different conditions, it would be hard to create a game port for Switch and considered that their differences with respect to the current home consoles and their player base complicate the arrival of the title.

Capcom's first full-fledged Monster Hunter on the latest generation of consoles (with PC to follow later this year) is among one of the strongest sequels to any RPG I've ever played. "Adopt-A-Hunter", a growing community of "Monster Hunter" veterans, are now inviting new players to help them enjoy the game. It's less a boot camp and more like a team-up, with the veteran just occasionally highlighting something that the in-game guides of "Monster Hunter: World" may have missed. And there is demand for the game on Switch but as he explained, it's not something that can be done easily. It is unbelievable achievement considering that the title is not yet released on PC and no Nintendo Switch version is in sight. While Tsujimoto admitted that Capcom is well aware of the request from fans, actually developing and releasing it wouldn't be easy to pull off.
