    Tokyo Game Show has kicked off, as of today, and with it comes a barrage of news. One of which, is regarding the latest entry in Capcom's beloved Monster Hunter franchise. Monster Hunter: World will be launching for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26 of next year, while a PC version will follow "sometime later". Preordering the game will get you some unique starting armor, and for the PS4, a menu theme. There will also be two deluxe versions of the game; a $69.99 Digital Deluxe Edition, which gets you a samurai skin, 3 gestures, and an extra hairstyle for your character. These can be purchased as individual DLC for those who get the standard edition. Finally, there's a $149.99 collector's edition, which will boast a physical copy of the game, all of the contents of the digital deluxe version, an artbook, a digital soundtrack download, and a statue.

    I dont understand the surprise of not be released to switch... limited hardware is one of the motives

    R.I.P. Switch, turns out you need more than marketing to make a good console.

    It's a bit early to dismiss the console now, wouldn't you say?

    Besides, one release isn't going to kill the Switch.

    It's actually sad that delayed PC releases are now the norm.

    I guess, I'm just real pessimistic of the Switch. Partially because I'm not impressed yet,partially because of the disappointing second half of the Wii U's life, partially because everyone I know IRL is hyped about for no reason and I'm a degenerate contrarion.

    Yup that was the main reason given by the devs.
    And since this opus is not edited by Nintendo, They have no obligation to release it on switch. Maybe they will but they'll take time to downgrade, so the game stay decent (graphics speaking)
