Monster Hunter is one of the most popular franchises for Capcom and it seems that Nintendo Switch might be getting a Monster Hunter game.
Nintendo Switch launched with a handful of launch titles but given that Nintendo has partnered with dozens of third party publishers and developers we might see more games for the console in the future and Monster Hunter might be one of them.
Speaking with Takashi Mochizuki, the Tokyo-based technology reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Capcom’s Shintaro Kojima was asked if a Monster Hunter game would come to Nintendo Switch to this he replied, “hope you enjoy it on 3DS first”.
While he did not confirm it, Kojima also did not outright deny that the game might be coming to Nintendo Switch, which might suggest that the game would one day come to the hybrid console.

Capcom has already shown some interest in the hybrid console as the company is releasing Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers for Nintendo Switch. We are sure if the Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is successful on the hybrid console we might see a Monster Hunter game for Nintendo Switch.
Speaking of Capcom, just recently a leak emerged on the internet suggesting that Capcom is working on three unannounced new IPs.
