Today, Capcom held a press conference for Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver., which comes out at the end of the month (on August 25th). During that press conference, it was announced that the demo version for the game would be released next week, on August 10th.
This demo will let players fight 3 different monsters, which correspond to three difficulty levels:
- Great Maccao (Beginner)
- Barioth (Intermediate)
- Barufaruku (Advanced)
Overall, the demo is pretty much the same as the one released for Monster Hunter Generations on Nintendo 3DS. It lets up to 4 players hunt monsters together, only via local wireless (the full version of the game does have online play). Since you need online to play with Nintendo 3DS players, you cannot do so in this demo version (the opposite would have been quite surprising).
Players will be able to choose among all 6 Hunting Styles, but also the various types of Prowlers. Basically, everything available in the full game is in the demo, as far as play styles are concerned.
This demo version will require 1.8GB of free space on your Nintendo Switch or microSD Card. Since the Nintendo Switch is region-free, all you will need to download it is a Nintendo Account set to Japan. Of course, it will only be available in Japanese, since no localisation has been announced.
Finally, as part of a collaboration with Joysound, a special Felyne will be distributed as DLC from August 25th, for both Monster Hunter XX (Nintendo 3DS) and Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Version (Nintendo Switch).
Finally, here’s some screenshots for the demo and the special Felyne:
Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. (Switch) comes out on August 25th in Japan, with no western release planned so far. The list of demos on Nintendo Switch and the Upcoming Releases page have been updated!
