Rumors of a new Monster Hunter game for Switch start to swirl

Last week, we found out that Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate sold over 1.2 million units on Switch. Fans were really impressed to see the game hit that total, as it's just a port of a previous game, and Capcom did little-to-no promotion for it. Could you imagine what would happen if Capcom actually created a new Monster Hunter game for Switch and advertised it? Rumor has it we won't have to imagine it for much longer.

Various sources are coming out of the woodwork to spread rumor of a new Monster Hunter game coming to Switch. Apparently the title could be revealed sometime next month, if all goes according to plan.

With how big the Monster Hunter franchise is right now, revealing a new title for Switch could be quite a momentous occasion. Let's hope this rumor ends up being spot-on.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate moves 1.2 million on Switch

It took a lot of begging from fans, but Capcom finally released Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate in North America and Europe. It seems like the move paid off as well, as Capcom's latest financial report shows that MHGU has managed to move roughly 1.2 million units worldwide. I'd say that's a pretty outstanding total considering it's a somewhat-enhanced port with the bare minimum of marketing!

Thanks to Jxcorr for the heads up!
