‘Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher’ announced for Nintendo Switch

Does anyone remember this old Monster Breeder 1999 anime? Well, apparently Nintendo wants to rekindle some of those old memories, but with kaiju in Ultra Kaiju Monster Breeder. You can check out the trailer below:

Kaiju Ranching: Fun, apocalyptic destruction for all ages!

Now all that’s missing is the screaming and toppling skyscrapers.

Bandai Namco Entertainment America recently released the trailer for Ultra Kaiju Monster Breeder above on YouTube. As you can see, it’s basically a farming simulator, but with kaiju. There’s something surreal about you ordering mountain-sized monsters to do mundane things like watering a farm or building a skyscraper-sized snowman. This is before entering fights with other kaiju that should end the world and merge them to create new ones. And yet, there is a strange charm to it. Kind of like Pokemon in some ways, really.

As for when we can play Ultra Kaiju Monster Breeder? According to the end of the trailer, apparently this game is coming this year in 2022. The publish window is unfortunately not more precise than that. However, given that it’s already summer 2022 at the time of this writing, that suggests we probably won’t see this game until very late in 2022. Possibly fall 2022, but more likely the winter 2022 due to wave of release window. This is pure speculation until we get official confirmation. Take it with a grain of salt.

Ultra Kaiju Monster Breeder: Details

Now you too can farm apocalyptically huge monsters for fun!

Ultra Kaiju Monster Breeder is the last opus of the Monster Breeder series of games for the Nintendo Switch. This game is actually the feat of a cooperative effort between Bandai Namco (the game’s current developer), Koei Tecmo Games (Monster Breeder), and Tsuburaya Productions (Ultraman). As you might have guessed, the kaiju in this game all come from Ultraman Tsuburaya Productions franchise.

As for what this game is about? Well, Bandai Namco has a very short and vague synopsis in their trailer video description. Check it out below:

“You’re going to need a bigger ranch!” Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022.”

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to pre-order this game anywhere. Check back later to see if this option appears on the Nintendo eShop.
