So, apparntly XX won't be ported because they a working on a new game developed from ground up on switch.

monster hunter world will probably look better...especially on PC but might play very differently or casualized for the bro audience.

but the new switch game will surely be the real next installment.

-----------------------

SOURCE: the guy who said the ps4 would get a monster hunter game back in october of last year. is the guy leaking this information.

Play differently? World plays just like every other MH game. Have you not seen the leaked footage?

I welcome all new Monster Hunter. I believe that Capcom is on record calling MHW the real MH5... still leaving the number off the game seems curious. Either way, there is an audience on Switch that will love to play a new Monster Hunter on Switch. Some of these people im sure are feeling betrayed after Switch got left out of World.. and XX localization got canned.

For the record, I think expanding the audience is great, and I like what they are trying to do with MHW. Its a magical series, but it has a steep entry barrier... hopefully this brings more people along.

After hearing from people I trust, I'm a bit more at ease with MHW. So calling it a "casualized" experience feels extreme.

However, I'm not against more MH for Switch. It's probably my most wanted title for the device, next to Animal Crossing or Stardew Valley. Just something to dump hundreds of hours into, and get the most out of my Switch.

I can't wait for MHW, but would also love a more traditional Monster Hunter on Switch, no area transitions in World already changed the whole game up drastically, the same with hiding in bushes and seeing a hit counter.

Cool, the more the merrier. I'll get Monster Hunter World on the Xbox One and if this rumour proves true then I'll get that game as well.

now there is an announcer to help you through the game....giving you tips... zelda navi anyone?

scoutflys handhold you right to the monsters.

and when you fight monsters. other monsters step in which will kill the monster for you?

sneaking ability lets you totally ignore monsters at will.

still havnt seen the hub world village....or the armor crafting ...the item management...ption crafting...the village tasks.....

seems i a bit more casualized and cinematic to me. idk.... i'll proabably just wait for the authentic switch one.

we'll see.

@KBFloYd: Im assuming some of those things are just from the tutorial. I think capcom has an event tomorrow or the day after showing more of the game so hopefully we get to see the hub world and all that good stuff.

It's a presentation, not part of the game.

Scoutfly thing is a new method of tracking monsters. Without segmented areas you no longer simply "know" where the monster will spawn.

Monsters killing each other was always meant to be a thing but was never fully implemented. Chances are it won't be as clear cut as you're making it out to be.

Sneaking is a good addition, and allows ranged users to actually use stealth for their combat.

Village may not have been shown, but it will exist. It has to, as the quests still have time limits and kick you out when you're done.

Your wool is showing so much it's embarrassing.

"Real" Monster Hunter? Is this more of that True 4k reverse psychology stuff coming from Sheep, now?

scoutfly is a handholding way of tracking monsters.

monster killing is a way to say ooohh awww while another monster kills your monster.

i hate sneaking...

your agenda for defending this game is unclear to me..... do you own a ps4?

this might help me evaluate your reasoning.

@KBFloYd: apparently you have to find traces of the monster first before you can even use the scout flies.

ok well....i'll reserve further judgement until the game is released.....japan will be the measure stick for me. if it sells 1million or more on ps4 in japan.

then i take back everything i said. if xx on switch sells 1 million and world sells less then a million in japan....then it will show which series is better.

edit:

although xx ix a 3ds port....the new switch game will be more telling...

but if world on ps4 passes 1 million in japan then it is a success for capcom no doubt.

also the reviews scores will be cool to.

I'm guessing new MH for Switch will look very close to MHW but will have the usual compartmentalized maps.

No way they're leaving the MH handheld cash.

That would be awesome. Especially after they went "no, we're not bringing you Switch fans XX", "no, we're not bringing you Switch fans World".

Maybe it is better though to wait for the new game internationally. Sometimes series when they release a new game in a new gen or piece of hardware have one game everyone jumps on but subsequent games not so much. Like only a small fraction who played FFXIII ended up playing XII-2 or Lightning Returns. Maybe it is more prudent to wait for a new MH game for the international release, even if it does look like such a wasted opportunity to simply localize the MHXX game they're already making for the Switch. Then again, Japan's an exception for the series, that's their target audience. They have a ton of those MH MMO games over there that they don't bother with outside Japan. They probably made XX for Japan considering there's no sign of franchise fatigue happening over there.

Agenda...? 😄

Because clearly I have an agenda when it comes to hoping for the best from a game in a series I'm fond of. I don't automatically hate something because it's not on my platform of choice. Learn to love games instead of the hardware that runs them.

Just watched the vid from this morning... man that is a lot of chasing. Not digging the world concept yet... nor the sparkly fireflys.

Still too early to form a real opinion... but hype is trending in the wrong direction.

That's true. People can import the game for the Switch because its not region locked, right?
