Monster Hunter World Developers give their reasons for not considering Nintendo Switch for release on Nintendo Switch

Capcom fans are excited as the brand-new sage for the Monster Hunter universe, Monster Hunter World is nearing its release date. The game was first revealed at last year’s E3 and the release date was announced for January 26, 2018.

At the time, we couldn’t wait and now the release date is upon us and the excitement is through the roof. However, there is a hitch that many gamers are surely going to be disappointed by.

Monster Hunter World is not releasing on Nintendo Switch. The game will be releasing on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4. Despite being the most sold gaming console in 2017, Nintendo Switch is not going to be getting Monster Hunter World.

Previous Monster Hunter games have been released on Nintendo gaming consoles, but Nintendo Switch supposedly does not meet the criteria for Monster Hunter World eligibility.

Monster Hunter World directors Kaname Fujioka and YuyaTokuda sat down for an interview with IGN in which they elaborated why the game was not releasing on Nintendo Switch.

According to the directors, they had started to develop the game 4 years ago. At that time, they had opted to develop the games for consoles that were in conception including Xbox One X and PlayStation 4.

Nintendo Switch was not even a concept at that time. They worked towards making the game perfect for their chosen consoles and that is what they have achieved at the end of 4 years.

They said that they did not want to rush making the game Nintendo Switch compatible because they did not want to compromise the quality of the game.

Nintendo Switch is still struggling in the AAA game because of its rookie status in the market. The gaming console in the meanwhile continues to gain a good lineup of games in its eStore.
