A leaked internal GameStop schedule coming out of Germany purportedly lists a number of titles as launching alongside Nintendo's upcoming Switch console.
I could see Monster Hunter being a legit launch title. Its very popular in Japan probably more so then Zelda is over there at this point and Nintendo is going to want to pull out all the stops at launch. I'm not a fan of MH but I know its a big franchise.
I never understood what all the fuss was about either. I tried getting into it a couple of times myself and just lost interest.
I understand the fuss, but can't bear the stressful gameplay.
I agree it's one of those franchises that I just don't myself really understand its appeal but Japan absolutely loves the Monster Hunter series.
I recommend Dragons Dogma!!!
Every weapon has it's own unique move set that's based on skill/timing and the monster design/moveset is better then most other games, that's why i like it.
Same. There was nothing else to buy on wii u when it was released and i hated the game. I spent about 15 hours trying to like it and never did.
Same. The combat is waaaaaay too slow. I love the art style and design, but I need Soul Sacrifice's combat.
You better believe monster hunter and Zelda are going to sell this platform like hot cakes in Japan!
Oh... monster hunter and Zelda on a portable device in Japan? Annnnnnd sold out lol
What if I never had hot cakes before?
I love monster hunter
I really hope Monster Hunter gets some real love. It is time for a reboot on a brand new engine. I got Monster Hunter back in 2006 for the PS2 and they are still using the same engine to this very day. It is time to shake things up.
Can't wait for the new Monster Hunter!
If the launch lineup is true (we all will find out in roughly 2 days) I will be getting:
2. Skyrim (if mods are supported)
3. Mario Kart 8
5. Monster Hunter
6. The 3D Mario game
7. Dragon Quest 11 (or 10, whichever is the MMO)
I heard 3D Mario was Q2
Well either way, gonna get it
Does someone have a link to switch launch lineup
I'm going off rumors that I've seen. No official word on any of these
The only interest so far is a new Mario game & Zelda.
I wish i could disagree with you but thats not possible as of yet. Maybe things will change after their unveiling in 2 days.
It does says NX placeholder and not Switch...not sure if that is relevant though.
I have to give 1 thing to nintendo, they are better at not leaking things early like the other two. Their lips stay sealed until they themselves open them.
They are very good but been a fair few leaks around this shame really as people just like to ruin the suspense but like those losers who used to write and probably still do somewhere "First" on all the comments boards. Yeah first to get punched in face ;) I guess it's all so that they can say well as I revealed back in.... yay medal in the post for you mystic meg 🙄
Not necessarily I would say all the companies have huge reveals that always get leaked depending on how huge they are.
I mean consider the same people that leaked PlayStation 4 and Xbox One also leaked pretty much 99% of what the switch was going to
Well if there was more hype and anticipation. You would probably getting more info.
If Monster Hunter gets announced for Switch, Day 1 for me no matter how powerful the console is, MH is what always persuades me to pick up Nintendo consoles, since Sony lost the exclusivity to the franchise after the PSP days.
That's what I keep saying , that's why the Vita didn't do so well as Nintendo made sure Monster Hunter stays with Nintendo.
Monster Hunter will be awesome, I spent over 200 hours on Tri for Wii, it was my first MH game, and at first i didnt really "get it"...but one you put 30 hours into, and your playing online with my wireless keyboard plugged in, chattin to my little clan, hopeing and praying for a good drop after a long 40 minute battle...wow MH is awesome
Ahhh man am i glad Monster Hunter is in the Switch list! Another reason for me get get hyped up!
I love MH!!! It's probably the only game I really put a lot of time into on Wii U. Looking more and more like the Switch will be a good day one investment.
It would go a long way to launch with these two titles, for east and west. If followed by a Mario etc., it's own exclusives could carry it for a bit.
If Monster Hunter Double-Cross gets a Switch port, the sales speculations regarding how well a third party can sell on it, are officially over.
There will be no way the Switch won't sell big time, with a game like that, especially in Japan, but even in the states as well.
MHDC would be the big flood-gate opener for other third parties to ride in off of.
Welp, if Monster Hunter is a launch title, consider me sold.
After playing Monster Hunter on the 3DS after not playing since the PS2 days, I seriously hope there is some innovation in this one if it is true. But seeing as most of the rumored titles are just ports... Idk. It is still cool, but for someone that has been a Monster Hunter fan for over 11 years, you have sorta been ready for that next big step the game is going to take and it hasn't even taken baby steps torwards that yet. The only reason I think they get away with it is cause most Monster Hunter fans are still new to the series over the last few years. Monster Hunter has been begging for a reboot.
The chance of playing a new Monster Hunter on my TV again makes my undergarments feel pretty cramped right now.
Never understood the appeal for Monster Hunter. The few times I played it it felt so generic and bland and was super repetitive.
I want to soft mod it already
Nintendo needs a major online MP game at launch too.
Splatoon, Mario Kart 8 and Smash. They will be just ports, but they will still be games that many people didn't get to play because the Wii U sold so badly. All three have great online play.
The launch list sounds excellent, but I'm still not sold on the device itself.
