Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Capcom: "MHW can't be done on Switch." But might make a Switch specific MH game. (Rumor)

No, but there is in the article to be fair.

Sooo are they contradicting each other? 

Yes.

Damn, I might have to try MHW once it gets its next sale, I initially wrote it off after an hour with the beta as a HD MH but watching it and reading of the mechanics over the last few days has really peaked my interest, especially in terms of the AI and environmental elements they've implemented, I can see why they can't down port this. It's great to see developers make use of power that isn't simply graphics focused and if I werent on a bit of a frugal stint I'd buy full price to support this.... not that it needs my support, mind.

I think it actually is MH in HD. I bought it along with my PS4 Pro a while back, and while some quality of life improvements are implemented, I was overall disappointed. Same old MH, with a fresh coat of paint.

OP: I wouldn't trust Capcom with anything at this point. I can picture them taking MHW, hacking at stuff (resolution, textures, AI, shadows, etc) until it runs at a respectable frame rate, then call it quits. And then they brainstorm a chibi version of MH for the Switch, to "better fit the demographic".

Stupid Capcom screwing with my predictions.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Not even possible using the cloud techniques which bought resi 7 to the system? I mean that's basically saying the switch isn't capable of displaying the game even if the processing was done elsewhere. Pretty deep.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

In other we words "MHW will cost too much to optimise on the Switch so we wont waste our resources" expect MH5 on both Switch and 3DS.

Yeah, my thought. Nothing at MHW indicates it would be impossible to port, but such a port taking time and resources might be more likely (I'm sure Panic Button would do it). But whatever, I'm down with an own MonHun for Switch.

It should be public knowledge that "can't" when said from a company perspective always means "don't want". No exceptions.

Knowing Capcom, a Switch-exclusive Monster Hunter will depend on how well Generations: Ultimate does.



Makes sense since Capcom  made all M H games except the first one exclusive to Nintendo D S

I assume you meant 3DS not DS, but no... the first two were on PS2 and there were 3 titles on PSP (4 if you count 2/unite as seperate.) Some titles were also on PS3/360/PC/Wii/WiiU



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

You know what would be a WTF moment ? Is If they announce Monster Hunter World 2 as Xbox One / PS4 / PC and also announce a Switch Monster Hunter from ground up at next E3? It might happen ? It'll please everyone.
