Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher release date

Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher is in development for a 2022 release on Nintendo Switch with EN language support.

Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher physical release

As of now, there are no details for an English physical release for Japan and Asia. The North American release is digital-only.

This will support NFC scanning to generate Kaiju as well as confirmed by Bandai Namco Entertainment SEA. Check out the official Japanese website here. I’m surprised that this is coming over to the West at all given the licensing, but it is great to see. I’m definitely going to play this on Switch.
