Capcom isn't giving up on the Nintendo Switch after all.


Capcom today announced that Monster Hunter XX is coming to the Nintendo Switch console.

The publisher didn't provide any official details about the game, but it should be a solid port of the upcoming 3DS title, and there's no confirmation of a North American release. However, Monster Hunter XX is already out on the 3DS in Japan, so we may see a localized port. Nintendo will assuredly showcase the game during its E3 2017 livestream event.

Remember that Monster Hunter XX is just an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations, not a totally new game. Even still the Nintendo Switch is a welcome platform to release a proper Monster Hunter title onto, and I'm hyped to finally play a MonHun on a nice 720p screen and a HDTV on the same system.
