For some reason people keep thinking the game is gonna get delayed. It may well be delayed, but so far Nintendo has been advertising the game as being 2017 since it was revealed. Even had a news post on the NS news feed that said it was coming this year. I guess we'll see, but if they don't have much on it at E3, then I guess people should worry.
I haven't played any MH since last summer and that was MH4U so I'm definitely ready for more MH. That being said, I would have loved to have seen a title developed with the Switch hardware as the target, but I'm sure that topic has been beaten to death here already. Anyhow, looking forward to it!
