Monster Hunter XX (Double-Cross) is making its way to the Nintendo Switch! Capcom confirmed this on the official Monster Hunter Japanese website and on the @MHX_Capcom Twitter account, but provided no other details.  Instead, additional details and a release date for Japan will be revealed during the Monster Hunter Championship livestream this coming weekend.

Monster Hunter XX is an expanded remake of Monster Hunter Generations, which was released for 3DS in Japan Novemeber 2015 and almost a year later in July for the west.  Though there has been no confirmation for a remake on the Switch in the west, fans may want to take advantage of the fact that the Nintendo Switch is not region locked.  So if you’re dying to play Monster Hunter XX as soon as it comes out, it should be no problem.

Nintendo plans to announce details for upcoming Switch titles in its “Nintendo Spotlight” at E3 on June 13th 12PM EST/9AM PST.

Gamer Assault Weekly will provide more details as they become available.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
