‘Monster Hunter World’ Switch Release News: Studio that did ‘Skyrim’ Port Wants a Chance

How awesome would it be to play Monster Hunter World on Nintendo Switch? Iron Galaxy Studios, the team behind Nintendo’s Skyrim port, wants to try their hands at bringing the biggest game of 2018 (so far) to the hybrid console.

In a tweet, Adam Boyes, CEO of Iron Galaxy Studios, reached out to Capcom and the Monster Hunter team to offer his expertise. Check out Boyes’ tweet below.

 

 

A recent interview with Toyo Kezai - via Kotaku - Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto spoke about the Monster Hunter franchise and the company’s relationship with the Nintendo Switch especially when it comes to Monster Hunter World.

“We’re aware of that request,” Tsujimoto said, adding that Capcom has already ported Nintendo 3DS game Monster Hunter XX to the Switch. “However, taking into account various conditions, bringing Monster Hunter: World now for release is difficult. The reason is that the Switch has different functions from other stationary consoles as well as different players.”

Tsujimoto didn’t rule out another Monster Hunter title coming to the Switch in the same interview and stated that Capcom is looking at how the company can support Nintendo’s new console.

Capcom has had a number of year one release for the Nintendo Switch like Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and Resident Evil: Revelations 2. The company is bringing Mega Man 11, the latest entry in its popular, decades-spanning franchise, to the Switch in 2018.

Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch received a Metacritic score of 84, with most of the praise coming from how well the expansive world plays on a “mobile” console.
