In a recent interview with Gamereactor, Capcom was asked if Monster Hunter Stories from the 3DS could come to Switch. It seems possible since the sequel was announced for Switch just recently. However, Capcom says they don’t have plans at all:

“There are no plans at the moment to bring the original Monster Hunter Stories to the Nintendo Switch, but if anyone is worried that they need to catch up on the story because it’s directly related or that they won’t understand to enjoy the new game, I can put that fear to rest because there’s a brand new protagonist and a new storyline.” Tsujimoto continued: “While its set in the same world, the game has absolutely been designed so that players can jump straight into Monster Hunter Stories 2.” – Capcom’s Ryozo Tsujimoto
