Monster Hunter XX just had a demo launch today in Japan. For me, it was a great time to get back into Monster Hunter since Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on 3DS. For the life of me, I can’t bring myself to play a game like MH on a handheld when sitting in my own home. Now Monster Hunter is returning to the home console. If you are thinking that this game looks similar to the 3DS release “Monster Hunter Generations” you’d be right. Monster Hunter XX is an enhanced version of the original 3DS title. This edition contains new monsters, quests and more. Cross-play with 3DS owners of the game and enjoy the new glorious visuals in 1080p.
“Monster Hunter…How I missed you…”
Capcom currently has no plans to bring the game to the west. A shame really, but you can still check out this demo by creating a Japanese Nintendo account and downloading it from eshop. Try it out and see if you can endure the language barrier enough to import a copy. MHXX has no story, so your only issue would be figuring out quests as items are easy to remember. Something tells me it won’t be too much trouble to figure out though.
If you are hungry for more, do not fret. Monster Hunter Stories, a spin-off of the Monster Hunter Franchise, hits the 3DS this Fall. If you’d rather have the next main entry, Monster Hunter: World will be coming 2018. Monster Hunter: World will launch on the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. There is no word on a Nintendo Switch version at this time. Monster Hunter is a fantastic series and I’d highly recommend checking it out. If you have a 3DS, give Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate a shot.
