They aren't even localizing XX. We are looking at 2019 at the earliest for the West if such a thing even exist. Again, like you said, assuming that Capcom isn't inept. So I would say 2020, if it exists.

It's not a doom train, just doesn't make sense. I didn't see people excited looking for more info on MH at E3, also,I don't think there's much hope with Capcom dropping the ball a lot lately.

Makes perfect sense to me and supporting all the major platforms on top of a global simultaneous release shows me they are taking seriously

And the gameplay video is evidence that this game will be something special

Those who feel miffed need to take the damn blinders off

Their adverts always said "The Witcher: Wild Hunt." Including the last E3 videos and the promo tours like Conan.

I know we've discussed this before, but man... that's nearly comically late.

No (new) portable entry for 2+ years is one hell of a gamble for a market that is so caustic and turbulent at the moment.

Oh yeah I totally agree that western Switch owners get the shaft. Poor planning on Capcom's part for sure, but maybe they'll throw us a bone.

Some people still haven't come to terms with this game not releasing on their platform of choice.

To be honest I don't see what the big deal is with the name change. Its clearly a step up from the other games.

Japan is getting XX on switch in august

We dont know what future plans for switch are right now so its pointless to speculate the timeline until we get evidence

That said they still have a portable team who has likely already started on their next title

This was greenlit before any console had a *massive install base* except the 3DS but no one expected it to refuse to die on the back of Pokemon GO become a worldwide phenomenon. The pivot west isn't/wasn't just on a whim, its because consoles have completely collapsed in Japan.

So why are we fighting over whether or not the game will bomb? As a die hard MH fan I'm never been so hyped and happy, I believe the majority of MH fans are with me?

The non MH fan are predicting it will bomb? Well good for you, I'm glad you enter a topic of a game that doesn't interest you just to claim it will bomb.

To the MH fans that are happy can we please ignore these people and enjoy what we are seeing?

OT: I knew that was the reasoning behind the name. You don't enter/expand a new market with a number as high as 5, makes zero sense.

Don't compare this to Live and PSN, this game really isn't an MMORPG either.

this is Capcom, no surprise here. not to say they won't port the thing to Switch. So don't lose your hope and keep praying.

Provided it's not a port of MHW, do you really expect the Monster Hunter team to deliver a new MH game for the Switch from the ground-up only a year after releasing MHW?

That was the line we were fed when it was 3DS exclusive

I do, yes. Unless we're to believe that the Monster Hunter X/Gen team has been twiddling their thumbs since November 2015. It's not as if MHXX would have taken that much manpower to produce.

Exactly. Taking into account it'll also likely be a 5th Gen game, it'll no doubt share assets and features with Monster Hunter World, whatever it ends up being. Capcom isn't afraid to milk this franchise after all.

go figure why

Yeah, I do find it hilarious and incredibly transparent. Nothing wrong with being disappointed that this isn't going to be portable, but some of the reactions over the past week have been nothing short of ridiculous and dramatic.

I mean

they have been pretty clear that they have multiple teams

The second team built Generations and are likely already on the next project. Presumably a 5th gen portable entry

Whether the west gets access to that game.... thats another story

Multiplatform is better for every consumer clearly

The haters bias sticks out like a sore thumb. This is the most inclusive game in the series ever.

Worldwide at the same time, multiplatform, online, cross region.

They tell you, they specifically followed the #E32017 tag and looked for what was associated with it:

According to an analysis of tweets worldwide that used the #E32017 hashtag - but not including chatter that done under publisher preferred hashtags, like #BE3 or #SonyE3 for instance - the most discussed game was Monster Hunter World.
Read more at https://www.kotaku.com.au/2017/06/wh...r9SvTpORbUR.99

Which is a fairly stupid sample-limiter (on top of further limiting layers to cull down the data) but its also trying to analyze twitter of all things and you have to add quantifiers otherwise the data web is far to spread to actually have any hope of parsing.

Brandwatch is probably the most robust one since it covers all (more) social.

Agreed. It's a big risk, but one I feel they NEED to take and it could leave the series in an even better position than it was before, potentially. So far the game is looking shit hot and sure, it's not coming to Switch but we're getting a console Monster Hunter for current gen systems. How is that NOT hype?

You were pretty bad at times haha!

To an extent, yeah. Although Capcom isn't crazy enough to completely abandon their portable market. They've done some crazy things, but that is something they just wouldn't do. We just need to accept that right now, their focus is on World and fans of portable MH will more than likely get the game they want in due time.

Look at their quantifier they only looked at a tiny sample of tweets on #E32017, its such a strict limiter that its potentially meaningless. They needed to disclose how many data points that generated and that they were able to sample.

I mean, XX Switch seems like a fairly last minute decision given the odd timing of it. So that's probably part of it.

Yeah well it was a tough time. I like this new multiplarform shift and as a switch owner I really hope it doesnt get left out

Farewell 3DS and good riddance. I will stand hard with all switch owners campaigning for localization

The salt is really old at this point.

Monster Hunter is now a proper franchise, with the proper genre trappings and philosophies, the previous games were objectively inferior.

Switch, PS4, 3DS, it doesn't matter. This is the future and the present of video games, if you don't like how it works, you are a minority and not worth AAA video game franchises.
