Monster Rancher

Monster rancher has been confirmed for a Switch release date of 12/19/19 in Japan. The game is mostly the same as it was previously. However, instead of obtaining monsters through actual CDs, they’re generated by searching for CD names and artists from a custom database via the network.

You can take a look at the original Tweet after the break.

Monster Rancher may have its Japanese release date – or at least a tentative one. Koei Tecmo opened pages for the mobile version today, and the official App Store listing includes a new November 28 release date. We’ll have to see if that sticks.
