It’s still hard to believe but yes, Koei Tecmo is bringing the original PlayStation’s Monster Rancher to the Nintendo Switch. We’ve only had a few scant screenshots to go off of so far, but thanks to TGS 2019 we have a debut trailer, and it’s looking even more like a direct port.

We already know of one big change, however – rather than loading in your personal CDs to create monsters, you’ll instead pick from an online list of discs.

Hopefully we’ll learn of a western release soon, but if you can’t wait, you’ll be able to download the game via the Japanese Switch eShop later this year.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
