Bandai Namco to Release ‘Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher’ on Nintendo Switch in 2022

Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. have announced that Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher, which will be released on Nintendo Switch later this year, is actually an intersection of two popular franchises: Ultraman and Monster Rancher, the latter of which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

The game is summarized as follows:

In ULTRA KAIJU MONSTER RANCHER, players take on the role of an up-and-coming rancher to breed, befriend and train Ultra Kaiju for competition. The game features more than 200 kinds of Kaiju from the Ultraman series to collect via the Song Search function to play songs. Kaiju can also be generated using NFC-enabled devices or items such as transport ID cards. Players can also combine or synthesize monsters to create all-new-looking Kaiju. In addition to enjoying unique movements from Ultra Kaiju not typically seen in past works, ULTRA KAIJU MONSTER RANCHER sets the stage for epic clashes of monstrous proportions reminiscent of classic Ultraman bouts.

There’s no specific release date as yet, but Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher comes out later this year for the Nintendo Switch.
