Capcom recently showcased another sizable batch of gameplay of its upcoming Nintendo Switch remaster of Monster Hunter XX, aptly named Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.

This time around, we get to see two very interesting parts of the game. The first video below shows Prowler Mode, that lets you play as one of the omnipresent and super-cute felynes, showing that they definitely have fangs.

The second video brings us back into human form for a battle against the formidable cover monster of the game, the flaming elder dragon Valphalk.

You can check out both videos, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy a recent batch of screenshots showing off the features created for the Switch, on top of the first trailera TV commerciala second onea batch of older screenshots, and more gameplay showing a battle against Nakarkos, on top of one against Ukanlos.

If you’re interested in the larger Monster Hunter franchise (or more precisely, in the next mainline title since this is considered a spinoff), you can also enjoy the announcement trailer of Monster Hunter World for PS4, Xbox One and PC, alongside some rather spectacular gameplay, and more from the latest event in Hong Kong.

Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. will release on August 25th in Japan, with a demo launching on the Nintendo eShop on August 10th. Capcom has been silent about any possibility of a western release. The only thing they said back at E3 is that it wasn’t planned, which could mean everything or nothing in marketing spiel.
