Monster Rancher Makes Its Triumphant Return!


Yet another nostalgic game release for the OG fans of Monster Rancher out there. Today KOEI TECMO America is excited to announce the long-awaited release of Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX. The game is now available for the Nintendo Switch, Windows PC via Steam, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch via the App Store.

In celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary, Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX bundles are going to be modern ports of the old titles Monster Rancher 1 (1997) and Monster Rancher 2 (1999). Players will be given the ability to create their own monsters from their favorite music, by using an online database to choose the album they desire. Each album/genre will give the monsters their unique features, attributes, and abilities – allowing players to find the perfect companion to secure their victory!

Monster Rancher 1 & 2 DX features the complete versions of both games. This includes content that did not appear in the original Western launch back in the day. Such content includes additional save slots, Freeze slots, Monster Hall of Fame slots, and 27 additional monsters. The new releases will also have extra content to make the titles even more enjoyable, including Training Records to help with raising monsters, rankings for random battles, and a Fast Forward mode to speed up the gameplay. Finally, players will be able to show off their monster-raising abilities post-launch in the Monster Koushien World Battle, a special tournament that will allow fans of the series to discover who is the number one player in the world. Originally a Japanese-only tournament, this tournament will mark the first world tournament for the series with players able to upload their save data to the game servers from anywhere in the world to see whose monster reigns supreme.
