Skyrim’s Nintendo Switch Developer Offers To Port Monster Hunter World

It is fair to say that Monster Hunter World has been a huge success since launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Yet so far, Nintendo Switch owners haven’t been able to join in the fun. Well, one developer wants to change that: Iron Galaxy.

Skyrim’s Nintendo Switch developer offers to port Monster Hunter World

Iron Galaxy – the developer who successfully ported Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch – have offered to do the same for Monster Hunter World. On Twitter, their CEO Adam Boyes tweeted to the Monster Hunter team that he’s aware of how challenging it’d be to port Monster Hunter World to Switch. He offered to lend his studio’s expertise to the publisher in order to make it happen.

“Dear @monsterhunter team at Capcom – we understand that porting the game to Nintendo Switch is challenging ( …) but this is exactly what @IToTheG does. Give us a shot & we won’t let you down ;)” – Adam Boyes, via Twitter.


Will Capcom bring Monster Hunter World to Nintendo Switch?

Given that for so long Monster Hunter was a Nintendo exclusive, it would be nice for Nintendo Switch owners to eventually get it. Monster Hunter World would be trickier to port than Skyrim, which first released for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in 2011. However, Adam Boyes seems confident that Iron Galaxy would be able to get it running on Nintendo’s console. How much would they have to lose to make it work though?

Being able to play Monster Hunter World does sound like an appealing prospect. Would you be prepared to pay a premium price for a lesser version of the game though?

Capcom has acknowledged the demand for a Switch version of Monster Hunter World but says that a port would be “difficult”.

“the Switch has different functions from other stationary consoles as well as different players,” – Haruhiro Tsujimoto, Capcom president .

So, would you like to see a Nintendo Switch version of Monster Hunter being made? If so, would you give the job of porting it to Iron Galaxy? Please comment below and let us know.
