Monster Rancher 1 and 2 DX Announced for Nintendo Switch


Monster Rancher 1 and 2 were recently relaunched in Japan last year. After overseas fans asked for them to be released outside of Japan, Koei Tecmo announced Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX for the Nintendo Switch. The announcement comes from the official Monster Rancher. Twitter account.

The game includes ports from the first two games in one package along with several new features. These include a high speed mode and a training note. More details about the games can be found on their website.

Monsters will also be available in the game that were original and exclusive to the overseas versions of the game.

Monster Rancher games are life simulation role-playing games in which players acquire monsters through the use of CDs. In original PlayStation games, any readable CD can be used to read data, and the game creates a monster using the CD’s metadata.

The Switch, iOS, and Android ports retain the basic gameplay and mechanics of the original, but because they now have CD playback, the feature where players get monsters from CDs is emulated by allowing players to search for CDs from a custom database.
