Monster Hunter XX Confirmed To Be Released For Nintendo Switch

XX came out in Japan in March, and hasn't yet been announced for the West.

Capcom has announced that the latest game in its power-selling series, Monster Hunter XX, will be coming to Nintendo Switch as well as 3DS.

The series nearly single-handedly made a hit of the PSP in Japan, but in an unusual example of corporate wheeler-dealing Nintendo signed it up as an exclusive to prevent it appearing on the PS Vita - which ended up being nowhere near as big a hit.

It's not entirely clear if this quote means that Capcom will cancel projects already planned for the Switch - if the game sells well, they're likely to put more projects into production, rather than scrapping anything.

"With Ultra Street Fighter 2 going on sale in May", Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto said in an interview with Tojokeizei, translated via IGN.

Monster Hunter XX - pronounced "double cross" - is the latest entry in the action RPG series; an expanded version of Monster Hunter X, which was released in the U.S. in 2015 as Monster Hunter Generations. Which is in itself not a numbered sequel.

It's not even E3 yet, and a huge announcement for Switch owners has just been unleashed thanks to Capcom. There have been no details on the price yet, but there is an upcoming Monster Hunter event in Japan this weekend.
