Capcom’s latest installment in the Monster Hunter franchise Monster Hunter World released for Xbox One and Playstation 4 earlier this year and to be releasing on PC this Fall. But for fans hoping to see this reaching the Nintendo e-Shop will be disappointed to hear that it’s not happening.
In a recent shareholder meeting, Capcom has made a statement regarding Monster Hunter World coming to the Nintendo Switch. Stating that the title “can’t be done on Switch”, and any way pursuing this has been cancelled. But this does not mean we won’t see Monster Hunter on the platform. Also said from the meeting that a game is on its way and aimed for the Switch specifically.
My translation of this tweet:
"Went to Capcom Shareholders Meeting, which went as expected. Regarding MH World, they said that it "can't be done on Switch," so it's futile to ask for a port. But, it appears instead that Capcom will proceed with MH made especially for Switch." https://t.co/OjmMQ6C133

Discussed previously back in March, the team that ported Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch mentioned that they could bring Monster Hunter World to Nintendo’s console. But it seems Capcom decided not to pull through with the project planned with Iron Galaxy.
Monster Hunter World is available now for Xbox One and Playstation 4.
