Today Capcom showcased some new gameplay of the Nintendo Switch port of Monster Hunter XX, aptly (and not very imaginatively) named Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.
This time around, we get about fifteen minutes of gameplay culminating with a battle against the wyvern Ukanlos.
The gameplay was streamed in 720p (actually, a little less than that, since it’s in a window), so the game will actually look better when docked, running in 1080p, and without the usual YouTube compression that never helps.
That said, keep in mind that this is almost a straight port from Nintendo 3DS, so there is only so much in terms of visual improvements. That being said, hardcore Monster Hunter fans never really cared all that much for graphics, or they would have moved on ages ago.
A demo of the game was playable during a recent event at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan, but it’s still unknown (but likely) whether it’ll be made available on the Nintendo eShop before release.
You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more, you can check out the first trailer, a TV commercial, a second one, a batch of recent screenshots, and more gameplay showcasing a battle against Nakarkos.
If you’re interested in the Monster Hunter franchise as a whole, you can also enjoy the announcement trailer of Monster Hunter World for PS4, Xbox One and PC, the first screenshots, and some rather spectacular gameplay.
Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. will be released 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.
