New Monster Hunter Game Reportedly Coming to Nintendo Switch

According to leaks, Capcom is likely to be working on a new Monster Hunter game for Nintendo Switch.

Earlier this month, developer/publisher Capcom has announced to show up at Tokyo Game Show to showcase upcoming highly-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil VIII: Village and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.

Reputed industry leaker AestheticGamer claims that Capcom has been secretly working on a Monster Hunter game for Nintendo Switch console for some time and planning to reveal it very soon, most probably during TGS 2020 panel.

Having successfully leaked a series of accurate information on Resident Evil games previously, industry insider AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem recently states that Capcom will be revealing a Monster Hunter game for Switch soon.

Responsible for modern-day Resident Evil remakes, a handheld compatible version of RE Engine will be running Switch version of Monster Hunter, probably getting rid of MT Framework engine that they used for many other MH series titles.

In recent years, fantasy-themed action role-playing Monster Hunter game series became really popular among Western audience following release of Monster Hunter: World for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in 2018, followed by PC.

Even though Capcom never released MH: World for Switch yet, a spin-off game titled Monster Hunter Generations has made its debut on Nintendo handheld consoles a few years ago, which originally released in 2016 for Nintendo 3DS.

Since there are no mainline Monster Hunter releases on Nintendo Switch so far, it would be a quite rational move for Capcom to exclusively develop a new one rather than simply porting over another classic title from their backlog.

Although such rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt without official confirmation, Nintendo fans can somewhat rely on Dusk Golem's report on a new Monster Hunter game for Nintendo Switch due to his accuracy in past.
