Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

Capcom is finally bringing the Switch version of Monster Hunter XX to the west, the company announced today. The game will be released in North America in Europe as Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate originally came to Japan last August. Capcom has been keeping quiet on any localization plans, leaving much doubt that it would ever launch in the west. However, we now have confirmation that it’s heading to North America and Europe physically and digitally on August 28.

Monster Hunter XX - Nintendo Switch

Capcom reported its financial results today for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018. As the company has said in previous reports, its original Switch games sold well. Monster Hunter XX and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers both “enjoyed hit status”.

In November, Capcom confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter II had shipped 500,000 copies worldwide. Monster Hunter XX managed to exceed shipments of 350,000 units.


Nintendo wasn’t the only company to report its financial results today. Capcom shared its own data and information about its performance for the nine month period ended December 31.

According to Capcom, Monster Hunter XX for Switch “performed strongly”. The company also said that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was “a smash hit.”

Capcom says that its net sales decreased to 47,740 million yen (down 10.8% year-over-year). However, operating income increased to 7,009 million yen (up 36.9% year-over-year), ordinary income increased to 7,099 million yen (up 71.2% year-over-year), and net income attributable to owners of the parent increased to 4,439 million yen (up 60.7% year-over-year).


The Switch’s video capture function is steadily expanding to more titles – including third-party games. Next week, on November 15th, Monster Hunter XX will receive its next update (patch 1.3.0). Among other improvements, you will then be able to record 3o-second videos in the game and share them on Twitter and Facebook.


Capcom provided its latest financial results today, and revealed new data for both Ultra Street Fighter II and Monster Hunter XX for Switch.

Capcom once again that Ultra Street Fighter II was “a smash hit”. The game has shipped 500,000 copies worldwide thus far.

According to a new report from Ace Securities, Monster Hunter XX for Switch has shipped over 300,000 copies across Asia.

The download ratio is said to be high in Japan. Also, Capcom shipped more than 200,000 units in Japan alone.

Of course, shipped differs from sold. Media Create’s last official figure through September 3 is just over 110,000 copies. However, that number does not account for eShop sales.


Tying in with the launch of Monster Hunter XX for Switch, Capcom prepared a special console bundle. See it unboxed below.

According to Media Create, Monster Hunter XX on Switch sold through 48.95 percent of its initial shipment. That’s lower than Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U, which transitioned from 3DS. The Wii U game sold 106,388 units in its first week and sold through 69.82 percent of its initial shipment.

Just like on 3DS, Capcom is extending the Zelda: Breath of the Wild collaboration to the Switch version of Monster Hunter XX. A trailer released tonight shows the collaboration in all of its HD glory. Check it out below.
