Monster Hunter 5 will release exclusively on PS4?

After the announcement of Monster Hunter XX for Nintendo Switch, the rumor resumes about Monster Hunter 5 coming exclusively on the PlayStation 4: the insider Mr. Pointy had predicted the arrival of Double Cross on the console of the house of Kyoto, for this reason even other leaks from the same source are causing some interest.


As reported by Mr. Pointy at the end of last year, Sony would have ripped to Capcom for the exclusive console of Monster Hunter 5, the game will then exit only on PlayStation 4, but not on other consoles. The aim would therefore be not to get the title on Switch and Nintendo 3DS, but at the moment it is only speculation without confirmation.

Monster Hunter 5 is expected to arrive in 2018, with support for online multiplayer and gameplay redesigned to be more accessible to Western players.

The great success of Monster Hunter X would convince the leaders of Capcom to speed up work on the fifth chapter officially, also speaking of a possible new chapter in the series of Monster Hunter Portable which could arrive on Switch and probably 3DS.

We invite you, as usual, to take this news with proper precaution, in expectation of any confirmation or denial by the publisher.

  • …Let it, who cares ?
    Now, CAPCOM, where is my Devil May Cry 5 ? Please stop pumping out this usel*s* clunky s*it with non-existent lock-on and give me a proper Devil May Cry game, please. I have been waiting for 10 years now, endured the travesty DmC was, so I really deserve it.

  • weird turn out of events considering that both the 3DS and Switch are selling real well in Japan, where the MH franchise sells the most too while the PS4’s not so hot.

  • No fu**ng way. If anything monster hunter 5 will be a switch exclusive. Japans market is mainly portable so MH without any portability is just sui*ide. Let it be on the switch, the way its supposed to be.

  • That would be a huge hit for Nintendo, but, if that is true, why didn’t Sony secure one monster hunter exclusive at the beginning of the Vita life cycle? That would have been such a boost for visa in Japan!

  • The only way it could possibly become Sony exclusive again is if they’re developing a handheld to answer the Switch. Capcom will not put it solely on a home console.

  • I am not a fan of 3rd party exclusives as long as the game is not hold back drastically by the other platforms
    It would be nice if MH5 is on both the switch&ps4 no 3ds version at all

  • Monster hunter is an one of the ultimate multiplayer game that they should have to release on ps4. I and my friends spend 500+ hours playing on PSP and nintendo consoles but, I dont think capcom will release MH5 on ps4, its just a rumour ….

  • Make me XD
    I will whi*e until I get what I want and if I don’t I’ll continue on until death. Make me stop.

  • “gameplay redesigned to be more accessible to Western players”
    they want to kill it before they sell it… w*f is wrong with japanese developers not seeing that western gamers wants the same experience.

  • Never ending since mhp3. Once mh5 is confirmed for Switch again, then yiu would say mh6 and the story repeats itself again until mhOhMyGawd. You really don’t feel tired, ain’t it?
