Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.
Today, Capcom shared some additional details about Monster Hunter Nintendo Switch Ver., revealed last week during the stage show at the Monster Hunter Championship 2017 tournament. There’s nothing too exciting in there, but it’s still useful information!
One of the most noticeable changes is qite obviously the resolution, bumped from 240p to 1080p (docked, “only” 720p in handheld mode). This allows you to really see clearly the world, the characters, and more.
You can really enjoy all the efforts that went into this game, such as the animations of monsters, hunters, Felynes, and more. We’re still leagues below a native Nintendo Switch game, but the improvements are still quite striking.
Capcom also shares some details about the UI, which was optimised for a single-screen display. Elements such as the Hunting Art gauge or the icon for the Target Camera have been arranged in an “easy-to-understand” manner, in order to offer as comfortable a gameplay experience as possible. Naturally, you will be able to control the camera using the R stick.
Regarding key actions such as the activation of Hunting Art and the Target Camera, you can choose between three different set-ups:
- Target Camera: ZL
- Hunting Art 1: Up (Direction buttons)
- Hunting Art 2: Right (Direction buttons)
- Hunting Art 3: Down (Direction buttons)
Target Camera: Down (Direction buttons)
Hunting Art 1: R + A + B
Hunting Art 2: ZL
Hunting Art 3: ZR
Target Camera: L stick (press)
Hunting Art 1: ZL + X
Hunting Art 2: ZL + A
Hunting Art 3: ZL + B
But that’s not all: various screens and menus were also improved and optimised for the Nintendo Switch, as you can see in the screenshots below.
Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. can be played in:
- Local multiplayer: up to 4 players, Nintendo Switch only
- Online multiplayer: up to 4 players, Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS
And as mentioned last time, you can transfer save data:
- from Monster Hunter XX (Nintendo 3DS) to Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.: requires an internet connection, works the other way around, no limitations;
- from Monster Hunter Generations to Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver.: requires an internet connection, transfer is one-way only (no transfer back)
Finally, here’s some screenshots:
