A Global Tournament for Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX has been announced

Today, KOEI TECMO America announced a special world tournament for their upcoming release of Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX. The collection will see the return of the Monster Rancher series in the West, and bundles together 1997’s Monster Rancher 1 and 1999’s Monster Rancher 2. The title will launch on the 9th of December for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch via the App Store.

The tournament itself, dubbed “Monster Koushien World Battle!”, will allow any player that purchases the game to participate by raising their monsters in-game and upload their data to see who the top players in the world are. Monster Koushien is the official Monster Rancher tournament series, of which the first was held in 1997 at the Tokyo Game Show, and has become the representative tournament for the franchise.

“I am planning to hold a world tournament like the ones we have been running in Japan,” says executive producer, Kazumi Fujita, “We have never run a tournament like this outside of Japan. This is an endeavour to allow everyone around the world to take part and decide who is number one in the world. Since the original release of Monster Farm in Japan, and Monster Rancher globally, I have always dreamed of running a worldwide tournament. I am very excited to see this dream become a reality!”
