Bandai Namco Entertainment America has recently announced the Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher.
Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will be coming to Nintendo Switch this year. This game will be a combination of two franchises: Ultraman for its Kaiju and Monster Hunter, a popular game series where players take care of unique monsters for competition. Combine the two and you get this awesome Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher game.
Players in this game will take on the role of an up-and-coming rancher with the goal of breeding, befriending, and training Ultra Kaiju for competition. Featuring more than 200 kinds of Kaiju for the Ultraman series to collect via the Song Search function to play songs.
The Kaiju can be generated with the use of NFC-enabled devices or items like the transport ID cards too. Players can combine or synthesize the monsters in order to make a new looking Kaiju. Aside from enjoying unique movements from Ultra Kaiju, the game offers an epic stage for clashes of monsters just like from the Ultraman fights.
“Between Ultraman’s impressive roster of Ultra Kaiju and Monster Rancher’s expertise in simulating how to raise monsters, bridging both franchises is a natural fit to create a fantastic and fun monster breeding simulation,” said Kentaro Matano, Producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. “Fans of these beloved franchises as well as those who enjoy monster breeding games will get a thrill from discovering, raising, and befriending their very own Kaiju and creating epic battles in ULTRA KAIJU MONSTER RANCHER!”
