Update: Capcom has released a trailer that can be found at the end of this article.

To the surprise of many, Capcom has announced that they are bringing Monster Hunter XX (pronounced "double cross") to the Switch in the form of Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.. Monster Hunter XX is the upgraded version of Monster Hunter X (known as Monster Hunter Generations in the west) that released for New 3DS in Japan a few months ago. So far, both the New 3DS and Switch versions of Monster Hunter XX are only confirmed for Japan, but it is very likely that the game will come to the west, presumabley called Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, shortly after it is released in Japan. Further details about the game will be announced during the Monster Hunter Championship 2017 this weekend.

No details are currently known about a release date or exactly what the Switch version will be. It could simply be an HD version of the New 3DS release, but it also has the potential to bring new content to the table. Either way, this is big news for the Switch because Monster Hunter is a system seller, especially in Japan. Stay tuned this weekend and in the future for more information about Monster Hunter XX.
