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

Stupid Capcom screwing with my predictions.

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.



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

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



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.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

Yeah. Including Capcom's developers. 



Exactly as I predicted. Switch can't handle mh5 and they'd be crazy to ignore the next gen Nintendo handheld so will obviously make a new mh for it. Many disagreed but looks like I was right again.
