Monster Hunter World Made Me Cry

Carlo: "For you to fully comprehend why the Monster Hunter World Reveal Trailer was such an emotional experience for me, I need to take you back to 2009. I just dropped out of college and my work as a web designer was starting to kickoff. I have been mostly playing on PC at that time and I finally decided to get a console. The decision to jump to consoles was brought up by two things: The couch co-op possibilities and the start of Online-Always DRMs being a thing. Since I did not have a constant online connection at that time, getting a console was the only way to play the games I wanted at anytime."

"Monster Hunter World Made Me Cry"
You and me and every Nintendo owner out there. Question is: If PS4 owners are getting this game what game are Nintendo getting?

_-EDMIX-_13d ago

I'm not sure there getting any.

MH XX isn't even coming to the west so I think Switch not having a big install base might have force Capcom's hand to move the series to current gen home consoles.

Bigger install base.

DS to 3DS saw 150 million to 60 million drop.

Switch has like 4 or 5 million units, vs a potential 200 plus MILLION install base on PS, XB and PC. They have to shift the series to home console. The main team is working on this, it was revealed this was called MH5 at some point, so its clear its not a side game, it is the main MH concept. They need all hands on deck to support this game, it will cost more and will be sold to more people, so I don't see them putting a team on MH for Switch unless its with a lessor team, even then I see them making it multiplatform.

Look at what they are doing with Resident Evil.

Remember. MH went from PS2, to PSP to DS, 3DS etc.

They didn't just have many versions, on 2 platforms, they simply had 1 version that was on a platform. I don't recall them ever making 2 versions, on 2 platforms for many years or anything like that. This might be the start of MH being a PS, XB and PC game from now on. Any Switch game coming, I think is likely coming to all platforms too, consider Switch is the lessor here. They have the small install base. SFII coming to the Switch...a game already on pretty much all systems. I don't know if we'll see any exclusive Nintendo MH for a while if ever at this point.

Regarding Generations for Nintendo Switch, it's not that it's not. It just hasn't been announced yet. That means it's coming eventually.Just like all the others that "had no plans announced."

Also, Monster Hunter World is a spinoff title which is not part of the main line. It's like the Monster Hunter Frontier games, which were released on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Wii U, and PC. They are a bit more open world-like, and so the gameplay is a bit different.

Since Monster Hunter has always been primarily a handheld series and one that has sold significantly more on handhelds than consoles, even when mainline entries makes it to consoles. Due to the fact that the Switch is the Ultimate handheld, AND is selling like crazy in Japan where handhelds are much more popular than consoles, you can bet your bottom dollar that the mainline series will be appearing on the Switch.

Furthermore, a lot of people who have been saying they are clamoring for Monster Hunter in the west, but don't want to because they want a "proper" version on consoles, probably wouldn't even like this game in the first place. For one, I'm sure many just wanted to tell themselves they wanted to get it, but wouldn't only because they unconsciously didn't want to get a game on a Nintendo console when blinded by...let's call it.... platform-specific-love. The other reason is that the gameplay is just too difficult and grindy for most mainstream core gamers in the west. I doubt very much most western gamers would enjoy the game as much as those in Japan.

@Jun- do you have a link to any of what you stated? What I'm saying is based on fact of what has happened and what has been confirmed already.

"Monster Hunter World is a spinoff title which is not part of the main line"

http://www.dualshockers.com...

"Araujo confirmed that the game is “definitely” not a spin-off, but he clarified that it’s part of the main line of Monster Hunter titles"

and

"Araujo also explained that this is “most definitely” a “real” Monster Hunter game, and it’s by the main development team at Capcom Japan. The gameplay isn’t being sacrificed to make it pretty either."

"it's not that it's not. It just hasn't been announced yet." Well ok, if you want to rest with that, know that like 10 or 12 MH games never got released in the west.

"Since Monster Hunter has always been primarily a handheld series and one that has sold significantly more on handhelds"

Ok, yet started on PS2, then went to portable. Switch doesn't have the 3DS install base though bud. Selling "better" is going to need an install base and its clear Capcom is looking at the combined PS,XB and PC install base for the future MH series.

"gameplay is just too difficult and grindy for most mainstream core gamers" Yet Demon Souls and Dark Souls..

" I doubt very much most western gamers would enjoy the game as much as those in Japan."

I guess.

That simply means it might not come to the west for real in terms of XX =) thanks.

Also PS4 and XONE and PC's exist in Japan...they can still have fun with the game soooo.
