Which brings up an unfortunate point. Monster Rancher was a cool concept... it's just lost its edge in more modern times.

Oh, me too. The good ol' days of various Monster Raising anime. Back before card game themed versions fully took root like Buddyfight. (Mind you I don't dislike Buddyfight, but I dislike the idea that every other monster series that isn't Pokemon, Digimon or Yokai Watch has to involve card games.)

Still, I'd love to see some kind of Monster Rancher revival. Maybe something with iCloud based technology or Flash Drives or something since disks have been outmoded.

I hear ya, it was a pretty epic show. Never played the games myself, Card Game/Explorer aside, but they looked pretty cool too.

I would imagine so. Though there hasn't been a game since 2010 last I checked.

I think Monster Rancher can get a revival. It could be an iPad game or something. Ah well, at least we got the anime.

From what I heard, there WAS an iOS app for it, but it's since been taken down.

In all honesty I think it's because Monster Hunter didn't have big time names behind it, like Nintendo and Bandai/Toei. As well as a not very stellar TV show.
But also maybe cause most of the monster designs in it are sorta...weird by my taste. With Pokemon ya get either cute or sleek and with digimon ya get badass or diversified. But that's just my oppinion.

It certainly makes sense, though!

Monster Rancher is still around just not in its original form. Its now going on as an MMORPG that we probably aren't getting. One of the games actually carries in from the anime and by that I mean Moo is the final boss.

Wasn't the MMORPG scrapped?
