Even though Capcom said that they will not be porting Monster Hunter World to Nintendo Switch, one company is willing to handle the stress to port the game into Switch.
That would be wonderful. I like what I've seen of it thus far.
They should port kingdom come deliverance to the switch as well as assassins creed origin, lol. A lot of the switch fans would buy anything for the switch because it barely has anything to play on it. They wouldn't mind playing those games with GameCube type of graphics in 480p at 20 frames a seconds. To each his own but why would anyone want to play certain games with a massive downgrade on such a weak console and pay a lot of money for it when there are a lot better versions available for cheaper price point?
Barely anything to play? Theres plenty lol
you do realize the Switch screen is 720p right?
"Barely anything to play", "GameCube type of graphics", "480p at 20 frames a seconds". Don't need actual facts or even much literacy to be a tryhard pony.
Ugh your comment gave me a headache. Please research before you comment next time.
By now people like you should just stop commenting on Nintendo’s articles altogether. You bring nothing new or informative to the table except your delusional hate for Nintendo, which is kindda getting old by now.
"Barely anything to play"? You know the Switch had one of the best first year game lineups ever for a new console, right?
The key feature is the mobile gaming aspect. Who wouldnt want to play Monster Hunter on the road?
Jag comments on every Nintendo post in a negative way. Has 4 posts from today and that they all say the same thing. He complains of no games, for a system I'm assuming he doesn't own. Pathetic.
50 games so far. So if I get 50 every year from now will I still have nothing to play?
Someone's been going hard on the insecure, butthurteraid.
idk man, even on the base PS4 and XB1 MH can barely stay above 30fps.. unless they do a serious downgrade to the graphics I don't think it's possible to make a decent port of MH. and this is a game that plays best on high FPS, main reason of why the 3DS version retained their old graphics is because they want to get that silky smooth gameplay on handheld... a low FPS MH is the worst treatment this series could get.
Capcom was being nice when they said it wasn't possible. You'd have to severely gimp the game to mnake it work when current consoles struggle at times for 30 fps.
I'm with you here. I think it's great that the Switch can get some ports of modern games, however there's some that would simply struggle to run. Monster Hunter World is definitely one of those games. I'm sure the game is "possible" on Switch, but the question is how much work it would be and if the end result would even be worth it.
@10th - exactly this is basically reality versus practicality.
I don't think it's impossible, and I don't recall them saying that. What I believe is that if they properly optimize it, they could work some damned good magic.
I'm sure there are millions of switch owners who would love to play this game. If it can be done, I say do it.
They could do it.
They couldn’t do doom at 720/30 . The switch spec wise is trash
Panic Burton's update picked up close to 10% better frame rate. There are some smart people with heart, getting a handle on what Switch can do..😉
Maybe not impossible. Metal Gear Solid V is on 360 and so is Rise of the Tomb Raider. Switch is more powerful than that system so ports can be done. It can be ported but the question is how much work would it entail and would it be worth it financially?
@seg-okay you do understand that Metal Gear Solid V was actually created for PlayStation 3 and 360 in Mind Correct? Fox engine was actually made so that way it could scale and work on something like PlayStation 4 and Xbox one but it was clearly primarily designed to max out PlayStation 3 and 360 by no means it's something like Metal Gear Solid 5 some native PlayStation 4 and Xbox One game. I mean don't get me wrong Metal Gear Solid 5 that year was actually my personal game of the year and one of my favorite games of all time but please that game is very much was not made to max out the PlayStation 4 it very much was created to max out PS3 and 360 especially considering it's extremely long development. You're not really talking about the same things, something like Monster Hunter was created first and foremost to max out PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as to why you even see it struggle at Max capability on those systems. Metal Gear Solid V on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was running absolutely buttery smooth on those systems, why? Wasn't intended to Max those systems out it was technically intended to max out the previous generation systems so when put on PlayStation 4 they have a lot of Headroom to work with to get a solid 1080p 60 frames was not something that was happening by mistake and that was not a coincidence that's a very much has to do what that it was made for the previous generation in mind. Monster Hunter was not.
It runs at that now. Do you get they did the game in six months? And they improved the graphics on the newest patch. Also, you do realize that most companies are only using 30% of the Switch's power. The games will look better over time.
Yeah I'd like it if they did for sure lol
Yes if: 1. Still offline capable 2. has proper LAN local support (not just online) or Just localize MHXX Switch??? seriously.....
See I’d rather they localize MHXX Switch since it’s already on the freaking Switch.
Maybe not offline. I miss MHFU :( Hope Sony release another portable similar to PSP.
Exactly, i'd rather play an actual Switch game.(One that is made for the Switch and not a terrible looking port)
I agree. Porting MHW will just ruin the game #IMO
I'm loving Worlds. 310 hours in minus maybe 20 of sitting at the PC. And if I could get XX in English language I'd import it. Shit I've been thinking about importing it anyway but probably won't. I agree, Worlds isn't enough MH for me & Id much rather see XX localized on the Switch. To Switch only users who can afford it, owning a secondary console isn't a bad thing and while personally I think PS offers more the XB has offerings as well so pair one of those with the Switch and walla, you have not only Worlds but some to a ton of other titles to enjoy as well.
The game is currently struggling to stay above 35fps on PS4 and Xbox One, I know the Pro and X are getting slightly better performance but still nowhere near a stable 60fps. No doubt these lads could get it running on Switch, but resolution and performance would obviously take a massive hit, to the point where it's probably not even worth it anymore.
Will see , the game just released it will probably revive few patches maybe then they could port it
Exactly but not only that but $$$$ ports are expense and World is a massive game. Putting World on Xbox, Playstation and PC is easy and cost effective. Retooling and downgrading it for the switch may not be worth it.
No thanks , this is the worst porting studio ever , they are behind Borderlands 2 on PS vita , every single port they release struggle to hit 20fps even theire own title Dust force suffers from frame drops , I have seen many of their ports in the PS vita days , Please Iron Galaxy Studio , Leave Switch alone
Borderlands 2 on vita was fine after patches.
No it was not , try playing 2p co op it crashes every 5 minutes
Borderlands 2 was much improved after the patches, the only problem is it took nearly a year for those patches to come out. Even with the patches though it still had some issues. The launch version of Borderlands 2 on Vita was horrendous.
Uh they did Skyrim on Switch
Not alone they had a lot of help from bathesda , Capcom will not lift a finger to help them
What are the games that they already ported to Nintendo Switch?
Borderlands 2 on the Vita look like PS1 game, and it seems a calculator can play it too.
Borderlands 2 on Vita was also a very ambitious port. I don't think it's fair to judge them based on that alone. They also brought Skyrim to the Switch and it seems like they did a pretty good job there.
The Vita and Switch are not even in the same ballpark of comparison. The Switch is more powerful than the 360, PS3 and Wii U. Vita wasn't even as powerful as a PS3.
It would literally be a miracle if they got this running on Switch. It struggles to hit 30fps on base PS4 and XB1. And it struggles to hit 60fps on Pro and X. If Iron Galaxy did make this possible I can see it only doing 20fps at best which is not ideal at all.
Doom was a miracle too..
It also wasn't as resource heavy as Monster Hunter World
🤔 Well good luck with that 😏
OK but not by this studio. Their record of porting games to handhelds has been abysmal, see: Borderlands 2 on the vita and many more.
You do know that they were the studio that ported Skyrim to the Switch right?
You do know they ported Arkham Knight to pc, right?
I did know that, cause I bought it on PC at launch. But I was talking about handhelds. As far as the Borderlands 2 Vita version, i mean how can anyone expect a game as massive as that to work on such a limited platform? Though I agree that there is no excuse for the Arkham Knight PC port.
How can you expect a game as massive as mhw to work on an also limited platform?
I never said that it would work, no where in my comments did I say a MHW port should happen. Im just speaking on their track record so far with the Switch. The Skyrim Switch port works and is well optimized.
Borderlands 2 on vita was improved after launch though.
So you should buy crap at launch and hope a patch months later fixes it?
It was still pretty bad, though it had more to do with the vita's limited power than anything.
even if its downgraded to 720p with lower visuals, more games on more platforms is better. *cough platinum games *cough, maybe a bad example though since Bayonetta2-3 would have looked amazing on xbox one x and pspro.
No way it would be in 720p on switch
It would be worse...
yah probably right, only if they decreased effects and polycount stuff like that, if they tried to keep that looking at 480p probably.
If only... Would be pretty cool. A huge task no doubt.
oh yea sure... lets give the studio who ported Batman Arkham Knight to PC this job... it would end so well...
Exactly , they don't know how to port games
just release mh xx world wide
I doubt the Switch is able to handle it. Have yall seen these graphics? I love my switch but there are Certain games that it will just not be able to handle. Not without being/looking like a completely different game at least.
Hope they port it to Switch. I've already stopped playing games on Switch since MHW was released. lol
If this happens, iron galaxy studio will be doing a lot of lowering the graphics. Hope they won't ruin the overall looks of the monster and the environment.
Nintendo Switch can run 720p. I think the graphics will still be good.
Sure, it can. Will it on this game? Not a chance. It will be sub-720p, especially considering the game is 900p on base xbox one and that system is vastly more powerful..
