Monster Rancher, or otherwise known in Japan as Monster Farm, is a simulation/RPG game from 1997, which had players breeding and raising a variety of monsters in order to enter them into fighting contests and win. The game managed to reach cult classic status on the PlayStation 1, and became popular enough to be followed by ten other entries and spinoffs. Over 22 years after the original game released, Koei Tecmo has announced that they will be porting Monster Rancher 1 to mobile devices and the Nintendo Switch later this year. According to Famitsu, this won't just be a straight port, and will feature a few new updates. The game will be releasing later this year in Japan, with no current localization announced at the time of writing.
