Capcom Says Monster Hunter World On Switch Is Unfeasible, But A New Game Makes Sense

Monster Hunter World is Capcom's fastest selling title ever and makes the once western-niche series into a worldwide blockbuster. Because of this success, Capcom has been fielding a lot of questions from shareholders about the possibility of Monster Hunter World specifically on other systems, extra specifically the Switch. Every time they have been asked the question, Capcom points to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and suggests that World would have a hard time being ported to the Switch.

From a recent shareholder meeting, Capcom decided to leave the realm of suggestions and just say Monster Hunter World can't come to the Nintendo Switch, reported from those in attendance at the meeting. It is unclear if they mean it can't be done because of a marketing deal or it's just technologically impossible, but either way, Capcom isn't going to be releasing a game titled Monster Hunter World on the Switch. Earlier this year, Iron Galaxy CEO Adam Boyes said they were confident they could port World to the Switch, but it doesn't seem like Capcom took them up on the offer.

Watch Vikkstar123 Use A Hidden Bounce Pad To Achieve A Wild Fortnite Victory Royale

If you play Fortnite, you'll never look at a staircase the same way again. Popular YouTube streamer Vikkstar123 turned a series of steps into a terrible trap that netted him an easy Victory Royale. Just click play on the video below (starting at 11:25), and let the fear of stairs take hold!

I talked to Vikkstar a few years ago, when he spent most of his time creating crazy stunt videos for Grand Theft Auto V. The thing I loved about those videos was his outside-of-the-box approach to playing the game, and finding new things to do within it. He's bringing that same type of focus to the world of Fortnite, and the videos have been every bit as entertaining to watch.

Vikkstar also participated in Epic Games' Fortnite Pro-Am at E3, and was paired with Ty Dolla $ign.

Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura Says Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Proceeding Smoothly

Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura Says Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Proceeding Smoothly

It has been three years since Final Fantasy VII's remake was officially announced and about as long as it has been officially shown. With director Tetsuya Nomura making the rounds for Kingdom Hearts III's impending release date, questions about Final Fantasy VII inevitably come up.

KHInsider and translator Goldpanner have translated an interview with Nomura from Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation, which has released excerpts of an upcoming interview online. In it, Nomura explains a number of lingering Kingdom Hearts III questions, but also goes a bit into Final Fantasy VII. According to Nomura, there has been a lot of misinformation out there about the title, but development is coming along well.

Nomura explained that they have been quiet about Final Fantasy VII because Square Enix has other marketing priorities, including Kingdom Hearts III and some other titles he didn't elaborate on. The director ends the interview asking fans to be patient for more Final Fantasy VII info, which he says the team is focusing on now.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick Remarks On Whether Red Dead Redemption II Will Sell As Well As GTA

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick Remarks On Whether Red Dead Redemption II Will Sell As Well As GTA

It's no secret that Red Dead Redemption II is one of the most anticipated games of 2018, but the title also has big shoes to fill. The new game is the first title since 2013's Grand Theft Auto V and its various ports and remasters. In the five years since release, GTAV has sold nearly 100 million copies, meaning that any game following the Rockstar titan has an unfair bar ahead of it.

When we spoke to Take-Two's CEO Strauss Zelnick at E3, we were curious what his thoughts were on Red Dead Redemption II and whether Take-Two thinks it could possibly achieve the same highs that Grand Theft Auto V did.

"I don’t really feel that…look, Grand Theft Auto is the most profitable entertainment property of all time," Zelnick explained. "That’s a pretty big statement. I don’t think the challenge for any one of our releases is if it’s as successful as another release. I think the challenge is, have we made something of which we’re incredibly proud? Have we made an experience that we think consumers are going to love and have a lot of fun with? I think the answer is hands-down yes with Red Dead and consumers seem to be eagerly anticipating it, so that’s good enough for me.

Play Through Dark Souls As Artorias With This Mod

Datehacks, the mod team who created a boss arena mode in Dark Souls, has a new mod in the works that allows players to fight as their favorite bosses through the whole game. Their original mod, allowed you to fight NPC's and other bosses in an arena, but with the Age of Fire, you can take your favorite boss through the entire game. 

As of now, there is footage up on reddit for Artorias, Gwyn, and the Sanctuary Guardian. The gameplay looks about as wonky as you would expect, but the concept is a fun one that will definitely give veterans a new way to complete their umpteenth run through the game. 

The mod is still under development, but Datehacks has said that eventually you will be able to take any enemy through game and tackle any area. So players will be able to take Smough and smash up the Undead Asylum, or pirouette through Blighttown as the inimitable Pinwheel.
