However, Capcom might have spilled some beans with its eventual release on the console.
When asked by Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki, Capcom's Shintaro Kojima did not deny that Capcom is looking into the possibility - but like other releases in Capcom's stable, it's all going to depend on how well it's current incarnations do. This is, by no means, not a confirmation, though it would be easy to assume that ruling out "Monster Hunter" on the Nintendo Switch should be unlikely.
A report from GamesIndustry Japan (summarized in English by NintendoEverything) following the Game Creators' Conference links it back to the RE Engine powering Resident Evil 7. Still, the game's development hardly comes on par with the amount of work in delivering a Nintendo Switch "Monster Hunter" game or let alone, a port.
The new engine of Capcom game could make its debut on the Nintendo Switch, with some new game in the coming months. Such a move isn't new with Capcom, and fans can rest assured that an entry will be made sooner or later.
Capcom has already shown interest in the Nintendo Switch and have already released Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers for it, it does seem that we may be seeing another Capcom release for the console in due time.
