Monster Hunter XX is coming to Nintendo Switch

Monster Hunter XX is making its way over to Nintendo Switch, Capcom has announced.

This title originally launched for Nintendo 3DS as an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations, which first came to the west back in July 2016.

The game has now appeared on Capcom’s Japanese website, but further details regarding the port and what improvements it will bring are yet to be announced.

Capcom will hold a Monster Hunter Championship Event this weekend, so it’s likely we’ll hear more about the Switch version there.

A western release date for Double Cross on both Nintendo 3DS and Switch remains unconfirmed. Neither has Capcom said whether they will be released outside of Japan in future.

With any luck, we’ll hear more news at E3 2017. For now, you can check out what we thought of Monster Hunter Generations below:

‘Get past a slightly drab, disappointing early section and you’ll find a feast of Monster Hunter fun. While you’ll miss the narrative thread and focused gameplay of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Generations makes up for it with a wider set of diverse locations, some fantastic monsters and impressive graphics, not to mention some additional layers of complexity which don’t make the game less accessible.”
