Capcom shared part of the Q&A session at the end of their 39th shareholders meeting from earlier this month. Apart from the questions mentioned in the press release, Capcom was also asked about whether Monster Hunter: World would get a Nintendo Switch version. The answer was no, but was still encouraging. (Thanks, @koudaiseidaos!)
The reason given was that the game simply wasn’t possible on the system. However, Capcom did say that the Switch might see some sort of Monster Hunter game outside of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate in the future.
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate will come to the Nintendo Switch on August 28, 2018.
