I can see the N, E, X and T being a tease
But the S and the W seem like a stretch.
Where exactly is this from?
Twitter account of the director for the MH Portable series and MHGen. The fact that they're teasing it now seems to indicate that it will be announced at the 15th anniversary event, but I'm still surprised that Capcom would market both a new Switch MonHun and Iceborne at the same time.

Yea, the King dropped DMC collection like it was nothing lmao
wouldn't it have made more sense from capcom to release it before DMC5?
Lots of Switch owners own PS4s and Xbox's, so they might've bought it in anticipation before getting DMC5 on their other system.

I wonder if going back after DMC5 will be as appealing. I have a PS4 and it's certainly less appealing to me.
weird choice to me imo.


but cool that it's coming if the zell leak is correct.
 
Weird how people didn’t expect Monster Hunter to come to Switch. Seemed so obvious
It still isn’t. Right now Capcom has still given incredibly lacklustre support to the switch and have given no indications that is going to change. They also seem heavily invested in MHW.

Whilst I think MH on the switch would be wildly successful and is a total no brainer I won’t believe it until it’s actually announced.

Who knows if Capcom even have RE Engine running natively on Switch yet. Both Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry V are incredibly gorgeous and certainly a step above the Switch's output, but RE2 is decently scalable. It could be that they haven't yet invested resources into adapting the engine to the Switch's limitations, or they might just be having a hard time doing so. In theory, DMC Collection would be muuuch easier to port.

From what I've heard, MH Stories was actually really good. Too bad it probably didn't sell well enough to justify a sequel.
It is a good game, but in the end, I think it was a tragic mismatch. MH does very well as it is, which just made it all the odder that Capcom wanted to specifically make an off-shoot that aimed at the Pokemon/Yokai Watch crowd.

It would have been interesting to see what may have happened if it was a good monster-raising RPG that could've been just as colorful, but didn't star a kid and their very weird-looking Felyne sidekick. Anecdotal, of course, but I knew several who wrote the game off immediately because they didn't want to play as a kid and didn't like the Felyne design (not knowing, of course, that Navirou was just "weird" and standard Felynes were still in the game).
 
Well, we don’t know about RE Engine but Monster Hunter: World is MT Framework, and the game is not extremely big in size (~18GB on Xbox).

Considering the Monster Hunter history I could easily see this being Monster Hunter: Portable World, Monster Hunter: World Generations, or some other kind of adaptation of that game.

Yes, support from Capcom is very bad. But they do like money, so they might want put another 3DS based Monster Hunter game on the Switch. I believe thats very possible since its very easy and costless to do...
