This may actually one of the few good business decisions Capcom has made:

>Believes the Switch won't make much sales so they put Ultra Street Fighter II to test the waters
>Decides to release Monster Hunter World on PS4 and other powerful platforms hoping to attract a wider audience
>No announcements of localizing MHXX anytime soon
>tmw Larger western audience for MH solely due to World
>tomw Switch game and hardware sales beat their expectations

Do you think they were holding out on releasing XX to the west purely because of World being used as an eventual booster in sales?

>inb4 soyboy posting and consolewarring faggots
>>
>>406718354
I was a little bit annoyed since I played Generations on the 3DS and had already planned to double dip for the extra content, but for now, I'm absolutely fine with World.
>>
>>406718705
I'm fine with World too, but it's nice to think of the possibility of XX coming overseas
>>
I was hoping Double Cross would make it over. My 3DS is hacked but I wouldn't have had an issue with actually paying for XX if it was actually released. Oh well, their loss.

>>406718354
>le epic use of

>>406718969
Hey it's still a possibility, and I still hold ground that World was a preemptive booster.

The Switch is region free. Just order a Japanese copy.

>>
I was unimpressed after playing 3U and 4U demos on 3DS, but after World's success, XX on Switch intrigues me. Have to give the gameplay style another shot.
>>
Why did people expect MHXX to sell retardedly high numbers on Switch? Its an HD port of a 3DS game. In terms of sales it did about as well as MH3U HD and MHP3rd HD
>>
>>406719242
>World is a booster
Bitch, it's the main course. Fuck off with this "Booster" shit
>>
>>406719553
I'm not saying World 's a side dish, I'm saying that the larger western audience it created could potentially boost sales in a possible future localization of XX
>>
>>406718354
To be honest, I played the XX demo and thought it was OK but I really like how much of the old clunk they removed in World. I'd probably buy XX anyway but I doubt we'll ever get another one like it, it's definitely gonna be like World for each game from now on.
>>
>guys xx is coming! Switch is relevant
Hey, you said it. Soyboy.
>>
>>406719219
>le epic use of
>"le epic" ironic shitposting
>>
>>406718354
Yes and no

yes because it will show some interest in the west since it sold 6 millions copies+

no due to the fact that after MH World, playing XX will feel more like a downgrade which could turn away those that played world
>>
>>406719703
that's a fair point
>>406719756

>when I don't bother glorifying nintendo in this thread and only make note of recent sales numbers

If MHW is truly the next step in MH series (which it clearly seems to be), I wouldn't be surprised if they did do a portable version of it for Switch (with graphics toned down obviously) because they'd sell gangbusters in Japan.

Double so if it's the G-Rank version.
>>
>>406719691
Oh.

Well then your probobly right. I don't understand it but it seems like everyone plays MH now. I went to my nephew's like a week ago and jumped when I saw he was playing fucking Monster Hunter, so the west might want more.

Excuse my autism

>>406719953
>remake the entire game just to run on switch when on ps4 it is the best selling in the series and potential to be the best seller of all of capcom

Capcom are a bunch of fools who don't listen to their largest fanbases.

Why o' Why would they never Port a game over seas? Their personal opinion about the success or worthwhileness of their time. It's like that asshole said "You think you want it, but you actually don't" fuck the context but it's the same damn thing.

The only way to rationalize it is they like money so MUCH that they don't want to spend the current moneys acquired by raking in Cash from the previous time they produced a game.

and the worst thing is it's just language.
This wouldn't be a problem if games were released with multiple language options from the start.

You know I also thought they might start to smell the flowers and the grass if they kept losing money from that street wreck known as SFV- Bah who Am I kidding.
>>
I think its because the westerners who got in from world would buy it and feel angry/scammed that they got a very shitty mobile game that plays like ass.
I mean Im assuming its like the 3ds/psp games not world.
>>
>>406720218
>implying Capcom wouldn't hire another studio to do the port job like Bethesda did for DOOM or Square Enix did for Deus Ex on Wii U

Also, refer to the previous statement of having the latest entry to be able to take on the go for local hunting and the Japanese will jump on board even harder than ever before.

This would apply to the West too who has seen a resurgence in taking Switch to college campuses to play local multiplayer with friends.

It's a win-win situation.
>>
>>406720218
unfortunately this.
As much as I love my switch world's style might be too harsh for this
>>
I'm loving MHW but I really want the switch version of XX so I have a portable MH game. I have the 3ds games but the 3ds kills my hands.
>>
>>406720467
This assumes Capcom make smart decisions. How can retards have any faith in them?
>>
>>406720258
anybody who has been following MH since it began knows that It doesn't matter what console it was on, we Played it anyways, not because it wasn't My favorite but because it Looked like literal pixel vomit I couldn't complete the 3DS games, if they actually got put on the Switch it would be like they get the respectful release they deserve instead of bottling up ideas for the next game or in the Case of MHW splitting the monsters up into DLC and then releasing MHW+ the DLC monsters and crap and Slapping a Big Ol TWO on the label and call it a day. They game is half finished that's why the Ps4 and xbox versions came out first.
>>
>>406720258
I realize this comes off as bait, I enjoy old Mon Hun and Want XX. But the mobile games are low quality compared to the AAA polished World and legitimately feel like this would trigger someone jusy buying it cause they liked World. As again, the 3DS games have a looooot of problems and really are only gimped as such cause nips like handhelda, but westerners are not as into them and would rather the full experiance. Remember its a generstions port not a brand new game made to fully utilize switch hardware look at how shit MHU3 on Wii U was.
>>
>>406718354
At the time, I didn't like Gen and not getting XX was OK with me. I thought Gen/XX was too over the top and flashy, even for MH, but now I just want it for some silly fun and portable MH. I love MHW and I would love some flashy MH on the side via XX. I believe they didn't release it so it won't eat into the sales of World.
>>
>>406720602
I mean sure but a more complete version of MHW from say 2020 would be best of both worlds, and its not as janky.
>>
>>406718354
>tmw
>tomw
literally what?
>>
>>406720654
THANK YOU. It's a breath of fresh air, all these MHW kiddies don't seem to understand that this game has a lot more history behind it than just the 3DS/wiiU versions and then the transferring over to heavier hardware with the pc release.

Game used to be on PS2 guys. The only reason it switched around from different platform to platform was publishing funds and the smaller market for MH. Now There is no excuse people have been telling them to port their games to other parts of the world and instead we get SFV which is garbage.
>>
there is a whole lot of qol improvements in world that would make going back to something that is structured in the classic way petty harsh. i can see them doing a portable world or including the switch in the future in someway since it has such a large user base now but i don’t know if a XX localization would be bolstered by world’s sales. if anything i can see people who only have a switch buying it but not much else.
>>
>>406720218
Yeah. Monster Hunter Portable/Freedom is a thing they do. They remake entire console games to run on a portable device. The only reason they didn't for the last two is because they were already on the portable device in question.
>>
>>406720218
they sacrificed the japanese market so that the game would do well in the west. Japan prefers handhelds. Portable 3rd sold 5 million alone there, MH4 sold 4 million alone there, MH4G sold ~3.5 million alone there. All of those not counting digital sales. World will be lucky to pass 2 million retail in Japan. They ramped up development costs to only have their game do as well as the fifth installment spinoff game on 3DS(MHXX) that used PS2/Wii tier assests.

They lost a big market for them. MHW: Portable will get announced this year and release next year. Its bound to happen
>>
>>406718354
No one fucking cares. XX sucks ass.
>>
>>406719286
>importing a copy in 2018
You can just log in to the Japanese eShop and buy it there.

It would still be better to have a translated version.

honestly its kinda shitty
like yeah the idea was to make mh world sell more, but theres no fucking endgame and now i'm craving the switch game. (fuck mh on portables)
>>
>>406721084
They sacrificed braincells. they could have had both outcomes they are just retard nips.
>>
>>406720221
>Largest fanbase
XX Switch is one of the lowest selling entries in the entire series though, where most fans are in Japan.

World also destroyed any hopes of Switch being a primary MH machine.
>>
>>406721191
Switch is a portable and if PS3 and Wii U were any indications its more a 3ds game on a big screen than an actual switch game.
>>
>>406721068
Psp was a powerful handheld that could handle console games. Switch is 2006 tier
>>
>>406721249
I also posted a picture of ONO and commented on SFV, Monster Hunter as a Franchise is their largest player base. Besides SFV.

It's the lowest selling in the Series because they didn't bother porting it and gave it no press. Capcom Willingly kills Their Own Success.
>>
>>406721336
>Switch is a portable
lol you cant fit a switch in your pocket
mine is perma-docked
>>
>>406721249
Context matters. Remember all the Switch shortages at launch? It was WAY worse in Japan, and everyone and their mother was trying to get one for Splatoon 2. Not to mention XX was already on 3DS and was cross compatible with the HD version so there was no reason to go out of your way for it.
>>
>>406720467
>>406721084
Again, on ps4 it is the most successful

the Wii was much stronger than PSP yet they managed to port MHTri to it with downgrades but it was pretty much the same experience(without water fights obviously)

The Switch is stronger than the Wii U/PS3/360 and in terms of GFLOPS its 1/3 the power of an Xbox One. The power difference between the Wii and PSP was much larger than the Xbone/PS4/Switch. A port is possible

>XX Switch is one of the lowest selling entries in the entire series though
Well, yeah. MHX and XX had already sold like 5 million copies in Japan when it came out and MHW announcement killed most of the interest on it.
>>
>>406721474
A switch without the controllers attached is the size of a 3DS XL. Its still very portable.

I have a cute little carrying case for me. I toss it the drawstring bag I bring when I go places that has stuff like my water bottle in it.
Portable doesn't just mean playing it outside of a house though. I can't count the number of times I would bring DS/GBA/GB over to friends houses to play local co-op games. I've been doing the same with my Switch and it's been great. Portability also means I can just pop it out of the dock if I feel like playing in bed or anywhere that's not the living room.
I don't know how this meme of "Portability = playing it on the bus or some shit" started but I blame Quentinposters.

Yeah, the Wii was sporting Gamecube hardware. Motherfuckers think The PSP was stronger than the gamecube lol

What the fuck are you on about? psp could not handle ps2, not even close, I mean p3p is the best you got. Switch is more powerful than Wii u. and significantly more powerful than xbox 360 and ps3. Considering Diminishing returns this is huge.

They were the lowest selling in the series. Neither broke 1 million on launch I'm pretty sure, no way they came even close to 5 mil

I love how it implies that people actually have time to play games on the bus, just how fucking long is the bus ride anyways? I live in seattle and nobody I mean nobody is stupid enough to whip the switch out on a bus, Abdi would jack you so fast.

To me portability means I can play at my desk and crawl into bed when Im sleepy and continue my game, or when Im on a road trip, even then niggas get car sick.

they didn't port XX because they didn't want people to get it confused with World, it wound up being a good business decision with the way things worked out

Yeah of homeless people drug addicts and other dregs that smell like piss. I'm told in yurop even middle-class people take transit, that its nice and comfy. Not like here where they reak of failure.
Obviously switching homeless person bus 5 times isnt a situation where you want to pull a switch out.

After playing World for 90 hours and going back to another run at 4U, I'm kind of just wanting G-rank games. I can't get enough grind out of High rank only Monster Hunters.

I'm going to import XX if they don't announce it at E3.

How likely do you think it is that Capcom is working on a Switch MonHun spinoff right now?

Who do you think will try to court Switch owners first before Capcom can get a proper MonHun on the Switch?

Toukiden, Soul Sacrifice, or God Eater? My money's on Toukiden.
>>
>>406722818
Very. Remember that the mainline and portable teams are separate. The mainline team got to work on World right after 4G, and the portable team recently worked on XX. Now that XX HD is out, they can work on the next portable game, which would end up being Portable World, which will most likely be on Switch since Capcom was satisfied with how their other Switch games performed.

Not too likely. Capcom invested a lot into World and are proably working on the PC port and DLC. While it's been successful (but I'm still waiting on actual sales numbers) It mush have cost much more to make and they want to get all they can out of it.

I think Monster Hunter's gameplay would work pretty well with Switch's hybrid gimmick, but I doubt we'll see any MonHun anytime soon.
>>
>>406723193

This. Monster Hunter has never had a good clone not even once. It's Phantasy Star all over again. Nobody does the formula right even slightly.
>>
>>406719953
World can't even run on the PS4, it's not happening.
>>
>>406719497
It was technically Monster Hunter's return to Consoles, while also being on a Handheld to retain the Japanese Audience. Call me whatever you want, but I hate the idea of being tied down to a home console when it comes to games like Monster Hunter, which is why I think World automatically sucks regardless of any QOL Changes it has. Enjoy your """new""" monsters and shitty weapons.

>>406719953
The game barely runs on the base PS4, it sure as fuck won't be able to run on the Switch.

>>406723614
Sucks to be you dude. World is literally the best MH game.
>>
>>406723614
yeah but everyone who wanted the game already played it a year ago. Plus them announcing the port to Switch then literally like a month later announcing that youre making the next generation of monster hunter games on PS4/Xbox/PC wasnt the brightest idea
>>
>>406723478
>>406719953
yeah i'm with anon on this one, there's no fucking way they could get world running on switch even with toned down graphics. the size of the maps and the complex monster AI make the PS4 Pro and XBoneX chug.

only way we're getting World on Switch is if Capcom makes a game from the ground up specifically for Switch and calls it World-S or Portable World or Land or whatever
>>
Anyone here still playing FU?

Nigger it's not gonna happen, just look at DOOM, that game ran good on PS4 and is barely playable on Switch even with enormous visual downgrades. I love my Switch and I wish MH was still portable but let it go.

>>406718354
Switch is probably getting its own unique new version on MH thats similar to world cause they cant port it

The portable games are never the same anyway. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd removed all the water from Tri, and that was Tri's main gimmick. Making a new game from the ground up called Monster Hunter Portable World is exactly what we mean when we talk about a portable version for Switch.
>>
>>406724069
MAYBE if they tone down the graphics and make the zones separated again.
>>
>>406724269
The switch has open world games
>>
>>406724346
Compare fucking BoTW's visuals to MHW.
>>
>>406724346
the switch has two open world games that drop down in the 20s and one of which has a dynamic resolution that drops below 480p

which is hardly ideal for an action game like monster hunter
>>
>>406724346
Zelda has performance drops in the Korok forest. Most other areas are empty fields/rooms or instanced dungeons. World is at least as dense as the Korok forest at all times. Then you throw in up to three other hunters and three other monsters.

And Xenoblade 2 is one giant performance drop. Don't even think about undocking it in a dense area if you want to be able to make anything out.

Since fucking when have they ever actual given sales numbers in the west? Its always been shipped copies.
>>
>>406724461
This. They could even downgrade all the visuals back to the HD 3DS ones from XX and there would still be performance issues unless they broke everything up into loading zones, too. There are very obvious loading zones in BotW that freeze the game for a few seconds if you enter them too fast with the motorcycle.

One of those games is a straight port and the other was done with half of a development team in like 30 months. I'm surprised Xenoblade wasn't pushed back to be honest.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind seeing a Switch MH without the fireflies and shit. They could keep the zoneless maps and some of the other qol improvements, but might need to scale the maps back in some areas. But a MH game a lot like World should be doable without much trouble.

Really the biggest problem with World is that they're using an ancient ass engine designed for XB360 and PS3. I know they updated it, but it's still going to come with baggage. That's why the FPS is unstable.

The most likely scenario is Capcom creating a Monster Hunter game specifically for the Switch with the World gameplay mechanics.

The bizarre route would be if the Switch gets future Monster Hunter Stories games

Try harder next time to not make yourself sound like a nintentard from the get go.

What would your ideal Switch MonHun be like?

>Stories graphics (for performance reasons. i'd honestly prefer less chibi proportions. something like BOTW's art would work nice)
>world split in to zones
>turf wars kept from world
>scoutflies left out
>paintballs are unlimited use tools like Whetstones in World
>fast resource gathering from World kept
>handler replaced with a good waifu instead

you didn't have a PsP then

sony forbid capcom from releasing it outside japan to avoid competition with world
>>
>>406719953
>which it clearly seems to be

if it was they would have called it monster hunter 5
but they didn't
so it is now
lol

that's extremely illegal

Being able to frontstep with Gunlance in World makes me unable to go back.

I'd want them to use the old graphic style, to intentionally make it look like the PS2/PSP/3DS games, where none of the faces are animated and the evironments are made of flat textures. I want to see them bring all the quality of life changes from World to a game that looks just like all the old ones.

Also optional gyro aiming for the slinger and gunner weapons.

After being disappointed with world I'm going to pick up XX.
>>
Since world was a huge bomb I imagine they're going to localise this to try and save some profits.
>>
I bet you that they will bring XX over later for the switch.

I imported it. If you've ever played monhun before, especially generations, you will literally have no issues
>>
>>406718354
Shit game anyways, perfectly fine with it. Play 4U if you want to play 4th gen MonHun.
>>
I just hope they optimise World Ultimate. If the primary target is consoles then it really should be able to run on those consoles.
But I doubt World is the death of handheld MonHun. The Japanese market plays exclusively on handheld, all the World sales are from the west. I can imagine World being a divergence point. MonHun remains on handhelds and World becomes an offshoot make for western audiences.

Literally did just that and having a fine time
There are guides online to know what quests you need to progress and the gameplay is leagues ahead of MHW. Plus double the monsters and portable
>>
>>406723791
4G says hi. World is almost up there, but massively lacks in content.
>>
>>406718354
I imported it. It's easy to play if you've played any MonHun game, super easy if you've played Gen. I Google skills and gathering quests I don't know.

I also have been playing 4U and World. They're all fun. XX is a bit easier I think than world but I haven't reached the harder HR stuff and I got absolutely buttfucked by the first deviant I tried

They weren't direct ports but the PSP was fine at handling PS2 like games. You had original games like Ratchet and Clank, Daxter, Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories, God of War, Final Fantasy Type 0. And then you had ports like Dragon Ball Z Budokai, Tekken 5 and 6, Spider-Man, Star Wars: Battlefront, and Akiba's Trip. You could argue it had more ports and had more console choice than the 3DS.

You had plenty of console games on the PSP and ports.

>world was a huge bomb
I'm sure if you say this enough times it will become true
>>
I'd be pretty hyped for MH5 on Switch, but if it doesn't become a thing MHW will be fun once it comes to PC.
>>
>>406723773
So let's see what they have to do to get it to work on the Switch.
>less monster-monsterk interaction
>less environmental detail
>less polygon details
>less animations
>port the entire engine over to the switch, mind you PC and PS4/Xbone are x86 based and the Switch's Nvidia Tegra is ARM based

Yeah, totally sounds doable and worth Capcom's time.
>>
>>406723684
and that gives you insight on the lives of everyday commuters? Nani?

thinking you're better than them is fucking hilarious dude it's a big car that you can avoid taking up space with.
>>
A Switch port doesn't seem possible. This game already pushes the Xbox One hard. You have much less RAM available and playing it docked would split the GPU in half. You'd have to play it at 540p and deal with a big, stuttering mess.

They'll probably split it off into two series. The clunky, more hardcore series on the Switch for Japanese and a more maintstream version on consoles for West.

Shut up the ps3 is DEAD.

>>406718354
you can still get it. you dont need to read moon runes to play monster hunter

>less polygon details

These would be totally fine.
>>
>>406728890
That's already the case. The Monster Hunter Portable series is separate from the flagship games.

They aren't more hardcore, though. Technically Generations was Portable 4th. Portable World/Portable 5th would be even easier than the original World.
>>
>>406728035
The fucking game barely hits 30 on the PS4, and the Switch is less than 20% of the PS4's power in docked mode.

They'd have to do all you mentioned AND bring back sectioned off areas with shitloads of load screens. The opportunity cost for this post would likely be so high they might as well make a fucking game from the ground up.

>>406729114
Do you really need to know how to read at all to play MH?
>>
>>406718354
idgaf i played it a lot on my 3ds with an english patch, lmao.
>>
>>406729192
I was playing through world and wishing I could mash A through all the talking bits like i could in XX. The only story I need in MH is how I took this big hammer and bonked this monster in the head until I triple carted.
>>
>>406718354
i'm still waiting for world to come out on pc because that's where all my friends play, but i'd buy a switch monster hunter day one too. portable monster hunter is always fun.
