The Nintendo Switch 2 has not even been announced as of yet, and it has already become one of the hottest items online. People cannot stop talking about it, and they cannot stop discussing the games coming to it. Previously, news of Ubisoft’s upcoming title Far Cry 7 coming to Switch 2 broke the internet. Now some leakers suggest a new Monster Hunter game will also come to Switch 2.

It’s not a very big surprise that Nintendo’s consoles have always been home to the Monster Hunter franchise. From Nintendo Wii U’s Monster Hunter Tri to Nintendo 3Ds’s Monster Hunter 4 and generation, there’s been no shortage of these monster-hunting games on these systems. Eventually, the Nintendo Switch launched, and Capcom brought Generations and Rise to it. Hence, it’s only reasonable that a new game would launch for Switch 2.

If this game makes its way to Nintendo’s new console as it is, it would be a very exciting thing. We already know RE Engine games run well on Switch hardware, all thanks to Monster Hunter Rise. Let’s see if the Nintendo Switch can run the same engine at full fidelity.

What else should this console have?

Capcom has always been a huge supporter of Nintendo’s consoles. From Street Fighter 3D on the 3DS to many other games on the Nintendo Switch, such as Resident Evil collections and the original Devil May Cry, there are numerous examples of their support.

Hence, it would not be an over-exaggeration for us to expect that they might even bring future Resident Evil titles as well as Dragon’s Dogma 2 to Nintendo Switch 2. But as we said before, for the time being, most of this stuff is either speculation or rumors; the confirmation would only come from Nintendo itself.
