Since the release of Monster Hunter: World and the recent success that it has acquired many people have suggested the game to be developed for the Nintendo Switch, this may provide more "difficult" than expected.


According to Capcom President and Chief Operating Officer, Haruhiro Tsujimoto, bringing Monster Hunter: World to the Nintendo Switch would be quite problematic. Tsujimoto explains in a interview with Toyo Keizai Online that the game was developed for consoles and PC, the portability of the Nintendo Switch and the limits that come with it was not what the developers desired to create.

When Tsujimoto was asked if he would consider developing the game of for the Nintendo Switch he respected the fact that there was a very high demand by the Nintendo Switch audience. Unfortunately though, Tsujimoto said due to "various conditions" it would be quite difficult, not only from a developing standpoint but as well as knowledge of user base.

Monster Hunter: World has been released on PS4 and Xbox One, a PC version is expected later in the year. Currently no plans for the Nintendo Switch.
