You might remember the struggle between Switch owners and Capcom when it came to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. Fans begged Capcom to bring the game to the states and Europe, but Capcom kept giving vague/wishy-washy responses. Eventually we got the confirmation on the game's localization, but what took so long? Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Producer Shintaro Kojima explained.
“The Monster Hunter production team were working on Monster Hunter: World after the release of the Japanese Monster Hunter XX. But there was huge demand for a western version so we decided to bring it to the west.”
