In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Monster Rancher franchise, Koei Techmo will be collaborating with Bandai Namco games in order to produce Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher for Nintendo Switch consoles.
Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will be a monster-raising simulator, in which you can take your Kaiju into weekly activities such as training, feeding, studying, and adventuring. There will be a tournament, and battle mode similar to other Monster Rancher titles, and the game will combine the base features of the first Monster Rancher and Monster Rancher 2, in addition, there’ll be a Monster Fusion system where players can take two Kaiju and combine them into something new and unique.
A psychical version of the game will be available in South-East Asia regions and translated into English, though, for those not keen on importing, the game will also be available digitally in the Nintendo eShop in North America. The game was slated for a release window of 2022, though no exact date was given at the time of this writing.
