Does that mean Monster Hunter World is getting a switch port?


Capcom CEO wants to bring ports of games to Switch that have never been on a Nintendo console

There's plenty of opportunities there

I remember how shocking it was that Capcom made that deal with Nintendo for multiple GameCube games. After being a partner with Nintendo for years on the NES and SNES, they kind of abandoned ship for the Nintendo 64 and moved over to the PlayStation. When I heard that Resident Evil would be coming to GameCube, it was a big deal.

The cycle begins anew, as Capcom is now jazzed up about the Switch after playing it safe in the early months. According to industry analyst Dr. Serkan Toto, Capcom CEO Tsujimoto stated that the company is more interested in Switch, and that they want to port over games that weren't available on Nintendo consoles previously.

I mean, the sky is the limit here. Dino Crisis, Devil May Cry, take your pick.

I think they already stated that they won't make a port of MHW for switch. Probably they are planning an exclusive title for this.

I guess they're going to port mostly games from ps1.

I doubt MH world can even run on the switch. The switch has half the RAM of the other systems. Doom only worked severely downgraded and because it was more of a stylistic game than intensive.

They mean all those 360/ps3 games. They will port those.
