Today Capcom announced that a demo of the Nintendo Switch version of Monster Hunter XX, aptly named Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. will soon be released in Japan.

The demo will be made available on the Japanese Nintendo eShop on August 10th, and should be pretty easy to download on western consoles as well.

It will support local multiplayer with up to four platers, and will come with three hunting quests and six hunting styles.

The available monsters to hunt will be Great Maccao, Barioth and Valphalk, divided in three different quests that you’ll be able to select in the main menu.

Below you can check out a few 1080p screenshots of the demo, including the quest selection menu and images of each of the available monsters.

Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. will launch on August 25th in Japan, and Capcom has been very silent about any possibility of a western release, besides the fact that it wasn’t in the plans during E3’s time frame.
