Am I crazy or does this not look particularly good graphically compared to Capcom's RE Engine current gen (PS5/Xbox Series/PC) games? Certainly doesn't look like a generational leap over the XB1/PS4/PC Monster Hunter World. Surely they're not still using their archaic MT Framework engine they used on MH World, that engine is from 2006. Why not use RE Engine for this? It's releasing 7 years after MH World, that is plenty of time to upgrade the MT Framework engine substantially to 3.0 for the new generation or build it in RE engine.

90% sure this one will have "switch 2" port.

Doesn't really look better than MH World at all to me. It's very possible the system is targeting the next Nintendo system, but in that case they should maybe have held off till that system's announcement.

It kinda looks open worldy to me, maybe that is their focus instead.

That is what I think - a true, no boundaries, no loading screen open world. Which would be a first for Monster World. That would allow certain monsters to, potentially, wander far outside their usual habitat/hunting grounds area and create lots of emergent gameplay.

Not worried at all. Monster Hunter World looked amazing and it sold bananas. The graphics will only be better than that and not worse.

The graphics don't look like a full generational leap over Monster Hunter World. This will get a Switch 2 port eventually

Let's hope so, it will sell a lot on that platform especially in Japan

Monster hunter world didn't need Nintendo to be the best selling monster hunter game. Rise released on all platforms but still couldn't sell more than World

Monster Hunter rise is still selling quite well and catching up to world. Also why skip a platform on which the game will easily hit 7.5 million

It doesn't work like that. You think releasing world on Switch would sell another 7.5 million? Many switch owners do have a PC, PlayStation or Xbox so they already bought it there. Why do you think Rise on PS4 and 5 isn't selling nearly as well as world on PS4? Most likely because they already got it on switch or pc. Rise won't catch up to world. As of September 2023 Rise was still 10 million behind World

Because Rise looks like a Switch game and not remotely close to a next gen game. Also the userbase in Japan for Monster Hunter is huge and the game tends to sell very well over there. A lot of people like playing it on the go, as they did on the handheld games. Also considering the Switch has userbase of over 130 million, there are plenty of people without a PS or gaming PC there is also plenty potential for double dippers, due to the portability factor.

So you really think world would sell another 7 million if it released on switch? There's just no way. I wouldn't buy world again on switch. I bought rise on switch but haven't double dip and not going to. If Capcom port wild to switch 2 it would probably sell another 2-3 million. Most of it in Japan. You might be right about rise sales on PlayStation and Xbox being poor due to it looking like a switch game but it's also many already got it on switch and PC

Are we really in the days where selling an extra 2-3 million units of a ported game isn't something to write home about?

Did I say that they shouldn't port it? I didn't agree with him saying it would sell another 7 million or so. Try reading through my posts again

Rise actually looks better than world, because artstyle > graphics.

I didn't hear much applause in the show.
