A lot of fans are hoping that the fantasy -themed, and action video game "Monster Hunter" will somehow be included in the switch. After being released in PlayStation 2, Capcom hints that the game might one day be incorporated into the switch system.

According to Game Rant, Kojima did not deny that the "Monster Hunter" franchise would come to the Switch. Mochizuki asked the Capcom producer if the series is coming to the Switch, and Kojima replied with "hope you enjoy it on 3DS first."

There is no confirmation yet that "Monster Hunter" will certainly be released on Nintendo Switch, however, fans are hopeful that the franchise might be released in home consoles, since it has been already circulated on portable devices, except for the 3Ds.

Furthermore, Capcom has not announced which games are coming to the switch but gamers in the US are expecting that it could be Monster Hunter XX, since Capcom already released an updated version in Japan.

In another report by NintendoWire, "Monster Hunter XX" has added another character, Gudetama, based on a beloved Sanrio character. Known for his lazy and disheartened mannerisms, the sentient egg yolk is a merchandise machine in Japan and abroad.

Whether Capcom releases "Monster Hunter" in Nintendo in the near future, fans will  not lose hope in the game. Having Gudetama allows hunters will be able to gain rewards from DLC quests. Players are now enjoying Monster Hunter XX in Nintendo 3Ds in Japan, however, a western version has yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for more Gamenguide update.
