The latest Nintendo Dream magazine (via Games Jouhou) has confirmed the recently announced port for the original Monster Rancher is coming to Switch.

The new port of the classic game is coming sometime later in 2019 for Japan, via the eShop. It’s worth mentioning the magazine is a Nintendo-only publication, so the port could be coming to other platforms.

For now, you can visit the game’s teaser website here.
