Monster Hunter XX for the Switch, a video game announcement heard around the world (and very clearly at the Tokyo Stock Exchange) is coming to Japan in August, and we have some new screens and details for the upcoming Capcom title.
Monster Hunter XX was listed on Amazon.jp, and with the digital store page, a host of new screenshots that show off the game's 1080p resolution (docked, 720p handheld) and improved UI on the Switch. The improvements naturally comes with the Switch's bigger and better screen over the original 3DS hardware.
Besides single-handedly raising Nintendo stock to eight year highs, Monster Hunter XX will deliver one of Japan's most popular games to one of Nintendo's fastest selling console. Monster Hunter XX will also include a one-way save data transfer from the 3DS original version of Monster Hunter X to the Switch version, while offering a more open save-transfer system that will go both ways between the 3DS XX version and the Switch copy.
Additionally, there will of course be some Monster Hunter XX Switch accessories to go along with the new version, like a Monster Hunter themed Switch (which is mostly just a designed doc). Unfortunately, it's already sold out in Capcom's online store. That's just how popular Monster Hunter is.
Hopefully more details regarding Monster Hunter XX's release in North America and Europe will be revealed at E3. Previous Monster Hunter games outside of Japan often followed months after the game's initial release in Japan, but hopefully fans won't have to wait as long for the Switch version given how quickly popular the Switch has become. With Switch sales climbing, it might even be a good idea to push out a high-profile title like Monster Hunter XX faster, though of course that's up to the developers.
