This will mark the first time a Monster Hunter game has appeared on Nintendo's newest home console. The game was originally released on the 3DS as a somewhat larger version of Monster Hunter Generations.
It's especially hard to say because Monster Hunter XX is already on the 3DS, so it's really just a port. If companies like Activision and EA are seeing this news, they are likely thinking about expanding support for the Switch since it's another successful platform to release new games on.
Not only did Ultra Street Fight 2: The Final Challengers brought the memories back to life, it is also doing an impressive job in making new ones. Why?
The partnership doesn't forbid multiplatform release aside from Nintendo Switch. The announcement also makes Monster Hunter XX the first mainline Monster Hunter game to get a console release since 2012's Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
Previously, the 3DS version of the game was restricted to Japan itself.
Today, the latest revision of Capcom's classic beat 'em up has finally made its way to Nintendo's compact console. There's been no word on whether or not Capcom plans to localize the 3DS version for other regions, which makes determining whether or not this Switch version will launch in the USA a little tricky.
However, it hasn't been revealed whether it will have more features added that's distinctly for the Switch version only, but more will come during that Monster Hunter event that's happening this weekend.
As this is a 3DS game, the most obvious update is going to be to the graphics. A fan of Monster Hunter said, "I was waiting for this game to give me an excuse to buy a switch".
Next, I tried it with the Joy Cons detached from the system and playing with one controller in each hand.
The trailer starts like most traditional Monster Hunter trailers, featuring Masato Kouda's legendary fanfare for the series. In fact, as what Forbes notes, this game is exactly what Switch users need, and there is no doubt about it.
