Capcom have repeatedly ruled out a port of World, (they get asked at just about every investor meeting) but I think you're onto something; a remix of sorts using repurposed World assets would actually be the best solution. That said, when it comes to the Switch they seem to have an irrational aversion to supporting it properly.

It'd be great if they did a Switch port of World as long as it ran decently, but yeah obviously that isn't going to happen. World's success in the west means Capcom doesn't need to drop PS/Xbox in exchange for Nintendo. But still it would make financial sense for them to have a team making a ground up Switch version of the next game while they make the PS5/XBS version.

A Switch version of the next game would cost a lot less than the other version and add many millions to their sales. Japan alone would probably rack up 4 or 5 million sales on the Switch. It could realistically be a 10+ million seller on Switch alone thanks Japan domination, and since they are already making the game a lot of code could be copied to the Switch version, just with different assets made from the ground up for the Switch, and then obviously changing the code in whatever ways needed to optimize for the Switch. It'd probably be an extra 10+ million sales for at most 50% extra effort. Though knowing third parties these days, they'd rather just be lazy than make more money.

aways Japanese week sales have Mh discussion. Why? Capcom helped Switch elaboration. Capcom has great sales on the Nintendo Platform ( the best selling SF to the date is on Nintendo platform, Megaman, good sales of Monster Hunter and Resident Evil). The great Capcom series have good sales. Nintendo Switch is a major platform now. 

It's nonsensical and Capcom lost a ton of money not make an MH game for Nintendo Switch. Maybe 150-300 Millions of dollar. If Capcom has an agreement with Sony that agreement has to be something that exceeds that amount. If not, it was extremely dumb and poorly planned. 

Monster Hunter World was only possible thanks to sales of the series on the Nintendo console.
