Capcom is looking to focus its sights on younger people. Whether it be juniors or high school students, Capcom wants to capture their attention by using its Monster Hunter intellectual property (IP) in the foreseeable future. No word has surfaced what this new Monster Hunter game will be like, but it’s certain that it will launch across PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
Capcom is currently working on a lot of games. There’s the rumored Resident Evil 4 Remake, Resident Evil Village, and now a new Monster Hunter game. While the company continues to work on those games, it also frequently updates Monster Hunter World.
Thanks to website gamingbolt.com, we learn a little bit more about Monster Hunter World and if it will gain a Switch port and what Capcom has in store for Monster Hunter fans.
The website highlights Capcom’s answers during a recent Q&A with investors, and one of the many explanations pertains to the company planning on developing a new Monster Hunter game for a “younger audience.” Moreover, folks holding their breath for a Switch edition of Monster Hunter World shouldn’t. With that said, here are the following translated answers from Capcom courtesy of said website:
“Currently, we are not planning to deploy Monster Hunter World on the Nintendo Switch.”
The Capcom rep’s answer, when asked about a new game in the Monster Hunter series, sits below:
“We are planning to develop a Monster Hunter that can be enjoyed by junior and senior high school students, and look forward to future developments.”
After Resident Evil 3 Remake, it’s safe to assume that this new Monster Hunter game aimed at a younger audience could be yet another current year product. However, time will tell what folks will be getting when Capcom announces the next installation in the ongoing series of games.
Lastly, expect Capcom’s upcoming portfolio of games to launch for next-gen consoles much like Resident Evil Village.
