Capcom has already spoken about why Monster Hunter World is not on Nintendo Switch, but, given the strong momentum behind the portable home console, that answer hasn't satisfied most.
Tsujimoto did give fans hope for a future title in the franchise on the Nintendo hybrid console. Now, the company's latest update for MHW has fixed some particularly bothersome issues with the way squads join multiplayer sessions.
Monster Hunter: World has received a new update on PS4 and Xbox One today, targeting a couple of notable issues with the game's Slashberry management and squad settings. On the flip side, players who were invited to a Squad Online Session and found they couldn't join should now have the ability to join. Fortunately, this most recent update fixes both of these issues. This update will move any Slashberries exceeding 30 in your item pouch to your item box. With any luck, the lessons learned from refining the action-RPG's PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will benefit the PC iteration later this year, as the publisher and developer has expressed its intentions to polish the title as much as possible for PC fans. Patch 1.06 and 18.104.22.168 are available for PS4 and Xbox One respectively now, and you can see what they do below courtesy of Capcom. The new patch also addresses an issues with matchmaking on Xbox One that made it more hard for Monster Hunter players to join their friends' sessions. Finally, there's an Xbox One-only tweak that readjusts the search alogrithm when looking for another player's session.
Monster Hunter: World has broken some records by selling a pretty good number of copies to date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but some people who have the Nintendo Switch are still waiting for the game to come to their favorite console.
