Monster Rancher Re-Release Gets New Trailer

Here’s the new TGS 2019 trailer for Koei Tecmo’s rerelease of Monster Rancher, and it’s looking just as I remember it.

While not much has changed graphically, they’ll be updating the way monsters are generated — instead of popping a disc into your smartphone (go ahead and try), players will select CDs from a pre-determined list of album titles.

If you’re curious about the old days, here’s a pretty extensive list of albums and their respective monsters in the original game. I’m not sure if all these will be included in the re-release, or if they’ll be the same monsters.

Despite the monster generation issue, though, the game is still a good time, training monsters, battling in arenas, and breeding them to create new ones.

Monster Rancher is set to release on iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
