    You think Capcom will change their minds about localisation after USFII apparently selling well?

  • Captain Vidya

    With World coming out early next year, I doubt it.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    True, but maybe Capcom will throw the Switch a bone since it isn’t getting it. Then again, that’s expecting too much from them.

  • SilverCenturion

    The only game that could get me to buy a switch not being released here hurts. At least I’ve still got MHFU on the PSTV, right?

  • Travis Touchdown

    Nah, Capcom is desperately trying to find an excuse not to support the Switch.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    No ability to learn and adapt.

  • Jack

    AT least the fucking switch is easier on the hands than the 3ds was
    fucking hell, holding that thing for any extended period of time fucking destroyed my hands

  • Personaknight

    That’s why You buya 2ds.

  • Luis Diaz

    This is gonna be the new Tales of Vesperia PS3, isn’t it?

  • Jack

    my hands are even too big for that to hold comfortably

  • Feniks

    Ha when the Switch is hacked fan translators will swoop down to do their work.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    You’ll get your ancient ports and you’ll like it!

    Only problem with holding the switch is the feeling it gives that the controllers are going to snap off.

  • Malcolm_Ecks

    Calm down Trav m’boy. MH games usually get ported after 6 months to a year to the West. You’ll get your MH Generations reskin while we’re playing MH:W and you’ll like it.

  • RockstarRepublic

    Still horrible graphics.
