Monster Hunter XX

Capcom has put up a demo for the new Switch version of Monster Hunter XX on the eShop. The download takes up 1.7GB of space.

Thus far, Capcom has yet to announce any localization plans for Monster Hunter XX. However, if you have a Japanese Nintendo account, it’s possible to download today’s demo from the Japanese eShop.

Capcom uploaded a new trailer for Monster Hunter XX on Switch earlier this week. Alongside that video, new details were shared as well.

New to the Switch version of Monster Hunter XX is rumble. However, HD Rumble isn’t actually supported – it’s just standard rumble. The feature is enabled when a monster roars, when you strike a monster with a Hunting Art, and when Barufaruku’s special move known as Comet connects. Rumble can be enabled / disabled at any time.

Ultra Street Fighter II was seen by Capcom as a sort of test run for the Switch – the company has said that its sales numbers would influence their future support for the platform. The game has exceeded Capcom’s expectation, selling about 450,000 copies worldwide so far. However, it seems Capcom is not quite done testing the Switch yet. During a Q&A session at their recent financial results meeting for the past quarter, someone inquired about Capcom’s future support for the Switch given Ultra Street Fighter II’s success. Here’s what Capcom had to say:

The Nintendo Switch seems to be doing very well, and we look forward to further growth in its install base. Beginning with Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) Nintendo Switch Ver. for Japan, we are evaluating how we will support this platform in the future.

Capcom released a new “Hunter Life” trailer for the upcoming Switch version of Monster Hunter XX. View today’s video below.

The latest episode of Capcom TV was hosted earlier today. The Great Ace Attorney 2, along with the Switch verson of Monster Hunter XX, were shown with gameplay. Watch the full recording below.

A demo of Monster Hunter XX will be available for the Japanese eShop on August 10th. The demo has three quests and will have the ability to play with four players locally. If you have a Japanese account you will be able to check this demo out.


The latest episode of Capcom TV aired last night, and once again featured footage of Monster Hunter XX on Switch and The Great Ace Attorney 2. We’ve included the full recording below.

The possibility of a localization of the Switch version of Monster Hunter XX has been quite a hot topic lately, starting with some comments made by Capcom around E3 and now the appearance of the Japanese version at Nintendo’s booth at Japan Expo in Paris. Alex “cvxfreak” Aniel was able to speak to a Nintendo representative at the booth, who told him that “We are unable to comment on localization.” So, no news on that front unfortunately, but the rep also said that “Capcom accepted our offer to show the game at Japan Expo.” It seems like Nintendo pushed to show the game at Japan Expo then, and not Capcom. There seems to be some interest from Nintendo at least to show the game to Western audiences, but again, a localization of the game doesn’t seem to be happening at the moment.


Update: NoruDarts, who took the photo, says Monster Hunter XX’s appearance at Japan Expo will be based on the Japanese version. NoruDarts further adds that Nintendo France never featured Japan-exclusive games at their booth before. It may seem strange to have Monster Hunter XX there given the touchy, sensitive situation surrounding the game’s localization, but we don’t make these decisions!

Original: Nintendo is having a sizable presence at Japan Expo 2017 in France this week. Along with a special Zelda masterclass attended by the likes of series producer Eiji Aonuma, playable games and tournaments are also planned.

Japan Expo officially opens tomorrow. However, someone seems to have gotten a look at Nintendo’s booth a bit early, and may have come across a very interesting discovery. While we can’t personally verify this, Monster Hunter XX is apparently there with a demo station. If true, you would have to think that Monster Hunter XX is seeing localization.

Since Japan Expo starts tomorrow, so we should know what’s going on here shortly.

Thanks to Arno_LS for the tip.


Some more details about Monster Hunter XX Switch Version. See the details below as laid out by Gematsu.

Target Camera

There is an icon in the upper right of the screen for the Target Camera. By pressing the ZL button, you can turn the Target Camera on or off. If you press the L button once while the Target Camera is on, the camera will turn to face towards the monster. You can also control the camera using the right analog stick.

Hunter Arts

There are gauges next to the item selection window at the bottom right of the screen that give you a better understanding of which Hunter Arts you are able to trigger. In the demo, three Hunter Arts were prepared and could be changed in the options. Hunter Art #1 was assigned to the Up button, Hunter Art #2 to the Right button, and Hunter Art #3 to the Down button. Because of this, it was necessary to release your fingers from the left analog stick in order to activate a Hunter Art while moving. While did not get to try it, there are other control types with key assignments that use multiple button combinations, which may be a better option for users who want to activate Hunter Arts while moving.


The Switch version supports controller vibration, but not HD Rumble. Vibration can be turned on or off in the options. The controller will vibrate at times such as when a monster roars, when a Hunter Art hits, and when Barufaruku lands his big move, giving various situations a higher sense of presence.
