    For those that have been wanting a Monster Hunter title to be released for the Switch, Capcom is granting your wishes, as they've just announced Monster Hunter XX, for the Nintendo Switch. According to the announcement, this is going to be an enhanced version of what the west knows as Monster Hunter Generations, which released last year initially for the Nintendo 3DS. There's no word of a localization, but Capcom is planning to reveal more details during Monster Hunter Championship 2017, which will take place on May 27th.

    Well, the switch is region free so you'll be able to buy it regardless :)

    Well, it isn't like monster hunter 3 ultimate helped the wii u that much, so don't be that happy when you can already pirate this thing on the 3ds...

    I bought the wii u version of that game. For me, it was a lot easier to concentrate when it's on a large screen.

    I'll probably pick up the switch version for a similar reason tbh. The only difference is that I may transfer the save to my 3ds (if possible) and give myself a ton of materials.

    Good for you then, and for the people willing to pay full retail price for an upscaled 3ds game.

    I bought the wii u version for 5 bucks. It was a while after the hype for the game simmered down...

    I'm gonna wait for gameplay updates and trailers.

    @DespyCL Hopefully, they'll have HD textures or something rather than just upscaling.

    The problem here would be the pricing. Console games tend to be expensive compared to the handheld versions. Around $60 vs. $40/$30.

    I just hope I'm wrong in this case.

    Well imo Switch needs his own versiĆ³n of MH, not just a port. I wish they're preparing something more. Something bigger than this.
