New Monster Hunter on Switch is never going to happen.
Capcom has shown already what kind of games they are willing to bring to the Switch.

Yup. And, unfortunately, its likely not gonna be that many.

Even if Switch users pass all of these game "tests" and buy whatever lackadaisical ports Capcom brings, Capcom is likely not going do anything more than that on Switch. Its a shame. There are opportunities to bring new entries of popular franchises on Switch (i.e., Ace Attorney, Okami, Viewtiful Joe, etc.). Heck, a sequel to Tatsunoko vs. Capcom would be cool since Switch isn't even getting SFV: Champion's Edition or MvC.

To the big third party developers from Japan, here's what I am asking: What are you waiting for to consider providing more Switch support?

The Switch is dominating Japan (and likely continue to do so even with the PS5 launching this year), selling well elsewhere, and has had some decent third party success, especially when most of the support are late (or last-gen) ports. Sure, the majority of the software sales are from Nintendo's first party offerings, and its likely not going to change, but that doesn't mean a new entry from Monster Hunter, Ace Attorney, Professor Layton, and others are unwarranted on Switch.

Yeah, talking in general globally here, but when you consider something as old as Skyrim that's available on everything else for way less money still has sold over 1 million copies on the Switch while being priced at $60 that should be a huge green flag to all third party devs that Switch owners will buy up millions of games if third parties just bothered building AAA games for the Switch. And specifically for popular games in Japan like MH it just makes no business sense to not have the game on the Switch built for the Switch. They're literally missing out on many millions of sales with that one game.
