The release date of Monster Hunter XX in Japan is fast approaching – in fact, it’s out this Saturday. Famitsu magazine did one last big feature on the game before its release, and while most of it is recapping old info, there are a couple of new pieces of info in there as well. Adam “Gaijinhunter” Evanko has kindly translated the new stuff.

First up, if you own save data from Monster Hunter Generations (presumably only the Japanese version), you can partially transfer that over to Monster Hunter XX. Here’s what will be carried over:

  • Story progress
  • Hunter rank up to rank 8 (you get to keep titles from higher ranks)
  • Name and looks of your character, although you are given the option of changing them once during the transfer process
  • All weapons, pieces of armor, items, palicoes, money
  • The “cleared” status for normal quests

And here’s what’s NOT carried over:

  • Everything that was in progress when you transferred, such as Hunters for hire currently out
  • UI settings and filters
  • Guild Card settings
  • Play time
  • Event quests and challenge quests

Famitsu also shared some information about two important breakthrough quests – you will want to hunt Congalala to access the high rank village and Diabolos to reach G rank.

There will also be a feature that lets you turn a max rank weapon into a G rank weapon, though further details weren’t mentioned.

Finally, a new feature will allow you to have convenient items such as pickaxes and rations delivered to you while you’re out on a quest. Also, the previously announced Sailor Moon collaboration will be available starting March 24th.

Head past the break for some screenshots that show off these new features, including the one that lets you keep the stats of gear while changing its appearance:

This week’s Famitsu scans are now available. Highlights include Dragon Quest XI, Fire Emblem Echoes, Pro Yakyuu Famista Climax, Cube Creator DX, Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X, and ads for Splatoon 2 Global Testfire plus Monster Hunter XX. All scans can be found below.

This week’s Famitsu review scores are as follows:

Let It Die – Uncle Prime Edition (PS4) – 9/9/9/9
Monster Hunter XX (3DS) – 9/9/9/8
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (PS4/XBO) – 8/9/9/9
Snipperclips (NSW) – 8/8/9/8
Farming Simulator 17 (PS4) – 7/8/8/9
WRC 6 (PS4) – 8/7/7/9
Side Kicks! (PSV) – 8/8/8/7
Hatsuyuki Sakura (PSV) – 7/8/8/7
1000m Zombie Escape (3DS) – 7/8/7/7
Koneko no Ie 2 (3DS) – 7/8/7/6
Unearthing Mars (PS4) – 6/7/7/8

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart. Things mostly stay the same with games such as Monster Hunter XX and Splatoon 2 in the top 10.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between February 23 and March 1.

Some third-party Switch games are off to pretty decent starts in Japan. On the other end of the spectrum, Disgaea 5 Complete and I Am Setsuna have started off slowly.

It was a bit worrying when both titles missed Media Create’s initial software chart for the week of February 27. When the expanded chart came in, we saw that I Am Setsuna and Disgaea 5 Complete were positioned at the 22nd and 26th spots respectively.

Level-5 CEO talks Lady Layton

Even though Lady Layton was announced last July, we haven’t heard much about it since then. Famitsu catches up with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino for an update of sorts this week.

Famitsu starts off by asking what parts are new compared to past entries. Hino points out that the protagonist has changed from Professor Layton to his daughter, Katrielle. Because of that, this game will have a female touch while keeping the series’ atmosphere intact. Hino hope the game will show a brand new side of the franchise.
